That's why the forum needs a cleanup, there are so many old topics as stickies, old categories that can be removed, etc. We have made these suggestions before, but apparently they can't happen because the super admin is too busy????


A suggestion could be to delete all members who has not contributed in posts in the last 2 years. Its no use to have this crazy membership total but no posts.

I don't think that deleting of members who is not active is needed.
not all is crazy like us, who live off sealine!!!

ok, lets see regarding sticky treads which is of no use.

merging of certain treads would have been nice.

is deleting of sold treads ok?
it will give you a idea of what the last sale price was.
remember post count going down with deleted treads.

My opinion:

I've noticed on a lot of threads, both fresh and saltwater, sometimes questions are asked and go unanswered. Most of the time these questions are asked by the newer members.

If these posts can get responses, even if it's a similar question to what has been discussed before, the forum will grow and people will be motivated to ask questions.

In my opinion, maybe this is one of the ways we can give life back to this fantastic forum.

I agree to an extent, but the problem is there are only a few active members, and it is expected of them to answer questions that have been asked many times on the forum, and could easily been resolved with a simple google search (using Google to search for posts in Sealine works better that the search function IMO).

I've logged in and seen three posts asking for spots around Cape Town, all posted within a day or two of each other! Many times these questions come from members that have been part of the forum for many years, but have zero or very little posts.

By now people should also start realising that asking for spesific information about fishing spots will rarely get a detailed reply nowadays. Too many people have experienced their spots being overrun (and sometimes left looking like a rubbishdump) by people who many times don't mind keeping everything they catch.
At most you will get a generic reply regarding the spot, or if you are lucky a PM.

Sealine gets hundreds of log in's from different users every day. It's not only up to the regular posters to "get Sealine back on track". If a quarter of the Roofkykers start posting something once in a while, it would already be a great help, even if just to congratulate a fellow member on a good catch or boat project.

We need more:
Fishing reports (Ala Blikkies, Soupcan style)
Tutorials (any topic)

We need less:
Spam posts
Repeated questions.

I agree 100% with Houtarm, however, there are those questions being posed requesting current conditions & catches, assist with possible productive areas (without exposing your favourite spot), but a general good spot, & also asked by new members.

The silence to those members creates an impression SL is not active, or members are reluctant to answer for unknown reasons.

My rule in life is, at least try & help a guy if he is new, fairly new or steer hom in the right direction.

We all started as greenies & learnt alot from others on the forum. So we should try assist our newbies & get new ideas in the open to give SL the boost so much required.

It cannot happen nor succeed from 1 or 2 guys only, its teamwork that counts here.

What about a drive to revive some older SL members who are still out there & willing to assist, give their inputs, ideas......lets approach them, hear from them ?

I'd like the ability as a thread starter to be able to delete comments made by any community member on my thread. An example would be should i post a photo of the fish i caught over the weekend, then have comments by a select few complaining why the fish was not released. It would be my perogative as a tread starter to remove those comments and not have them on my thread and be subjected to the gang mentality / bashing that follows

I understand where you come from with that perspective & idea, & had wished the same thought some years back.

Thats why there is Admin to monitor these aspects, there is PM to send an Admin member a complaint etc.


Rules are clear in the very top part of SL forum & we all hope that members abide by rules as grown ups.

Rude comment will be dealt with.

if the site is on a mobile platform, pretty sure it will help to get people posting, it is much easier to post a pic of your fish from your cellphone on Whatsapp or lamebook, you can't do it on sealine. We have had these "lets revive sealine again" posts almost more than any other posts on sealine.

Use the mana system to reward good post or assistance then once a year give out some prizes to the members with the most mana.

Also have a lucky draw for everybody above a certain amount of mana.

General online friendly comps, like the photo comps of the past where also well received, e.g. get a best galjoen release photo of the season comp going.

Sure you guys can get some sponsors for these prizes???

Make a thread where anglers can post links to their Youtube, Vimeo etc media. There is a lot of good content coming from our local guides etc. these guys are always looking for more views and subscribers.

I don't know how this website and the moderators etc work, or if they actually get paid/rewarded, but Sealine can be a whole lot better with just a bit more effort with due reward. I get this feeling that somewhere along the road the pap fell on the ground...

Great ideas! On that note, there was a SSEC that had comps, a kob all night comp etc, they don't even post anymore, there is really a screw lose, those guys made a massive effort Kaspaas etc now they are all gone

I understand your concern.
I do agree but where do we draw the line.

if I make a valid comment which you do not like, then you or it gets deleted.

it has 2x effects.
either the poster will refrain from posting next time.
or they will cry that a post deleted, which had some merits.

I have always said, fair comment is ok to any post.
we all believe in taking care of our fish stocks.

to delete a post with merit is also not right.
rather take note of the post.

lets rather get into a positive mode, where we accept things and move on, instead of taking it as a personal attack.

I agree with you.
that we need to do monthly comps, yearly comps like in the old days.
im sure we will get there as we now will have all to take sealine further.

nope, no one gets paid, it is all done out of goodwill.
so yes the pap might fall onto the ground at times.

only mods could delete posts.
no one else could do so.
many posts were deleted, and I mean many.
so, who deleted it????

read between the lines...…………
would we risk using the same mods again after what happened?


so getting new mods in with the correct view of taking the forum further without personal gain is where the secret lies.

as I understand it, to incorporate tapatalk soft ware needs to be rewritten.

so for now, it is unfortunately a no go.

but if we get the forum to another level, where it starts making money, we could ask Jeryl if we could upgrade the software to accommodate tapatalk.

Again Willem, it comes back to the same thing, if Jerryl does not have the time to make the changes and does not want to hand it over to other people to do then it won't move. you cant expect everyone here to give up there time and "make sealine great again"if Jerryl is not going to do anything.

hoekom is jy so negatief?
is dit opbouend vir die forum?

op die stadium los ek jou post op.
ek dink niemand wat die forum verder wil vat, het negatiewe sieninge nou nodig nie!!!!

wat pla dit jou, dat die forum eienaar nie wil verkoop nie?
want waarop kom dit anders neer.

ek doen dinge uit die goedheid van my hart en die liefde daarvoor.
as ek di dan alles verniet gedoen het, dan is dit my verlies en ons almal sin.

as jy nie n bedrae wil maak nie, dan hoef jy nie.

Look on the USA forums..how many pictures of dead tarpon, bull red drum and black drum do you see..none. In places with decent inshore fisheries they frown upon killing fish like that and in some instances or a few, it is illegal too.

I'll not comment on any dead cob haha but the time is long gone for posting pictures of big dead coppers, black steenbras, a cob over 20kg or a dead breeding garrick..Almost all of our inshore fisheries are in a state of "official collapse" which if I am not mistaken is stock less than 25% of pre fished level and now cannot replenish itself, most are in a far worse state and some really should not be where fish are fast to grow and reproduce, but they are, some of out fishes are soooooo sensitive to fishing pressure and are beyond collapse but still ous post pictures of big dead breeders and expect cheering from the crowd..We need to accept that those times are long gone. A lot of our inshore stocks are between 1-5% of unfished level now we need to take responsibility for our future fishing..

I'll not comment on any dead cob haha but the time is long gone for posting pictures of big dead coppers, black steenbras, a cob over 20kg or a dead breeding garrick..Almost all of our inshore fisheries are in a state of "official collapse" which if I am not mistaken is stock less than 25% of pre fished level and now cannot replenish itself, most are in a far worse state and some really should not be where fish are fast to grow and reproduce, but they are, some of out fishes are soooooo sensitive to fishing pressure and are beyond collapse but still ous post pictures of big dead breeders and expect cheering from the crowd..We need to accept that those times are long gone. A lot of our inshore stocks are between 1-5% of unfished level now we need to take responsibility for our future fishing..


so where does it leave us?
we all want the big breeders to swim away strongly!!!
that new pb, looks good on a picture, but they surely tastes kuk!!!!

I agree that we need to be more responsible when posting ourselves with fish pictures.

but users should know, that it is a free place, to post within limits.
we can make the rule between us, that we would like to have pictures posted with fish that is still alive.

then Michaelk comes, and posts his pb tuna with blood on the boats deck. "and it was released, ja sure lol"

so, rather take your picture with the fish still alive and post it then posting a clearly dead fish and claim it was released!!!


lets get on the same page, and move on.
this tread is getting enough attention, and all might be reading it, so they will be up to date what we are trying to do.

ill make it a sticky for now.
