Hi Itsarap

Its the incessant vaalie again.  Dont worry, I have only two days left at the office, so very soon I will be away from my PC, so the questions will stop.

I looked at the picture again, and with the help of Google earth measured the casting distances required.  Let's assume I am fishing for cob.  Which of the marked casts do you think should be the starting point.  Should I try to cast over the sandbank to get my bait onto the front of the sandbank open to the ocean, or should I try to cast on the side of the hole as shown.

Also, if I intend to fish the first hole I mentioned, do you think it is practical to wade out as fas as possible, and then make a cast during low tide, and then slide a chokka out at high tide? (Sounds a bit crazy to me, now that I type it out...)

hi there no prob like to help.

try to cast on a sand bank with a deep gully in front of it. look on the map the hole to the right you marked an arrow that gos from left to right (the skew one) if you cast over the hole just onto the sand bank would be optimal.

or you can cast next to the sand bank that you can see on the map.

this map shows me 2 holes. looks like the one to the right would be a high tide hole. The one you market i would try low tide so you have a choice of how long you want to stay at the sea. 

if i was with you i would fish early morning hours to sunrise on an up coming tide in the hole o the right. if the sun is out and the tide changed i would go home have a called one and wait for low tide. when its low tide i would fish the hole you marked and try slide that choka or what ever comes to mind, then i would stay for high tide at sunset in fish in the hole to the right again. if in this time i didn't catch a fish or shark i would move two another spot.

it would be better if you can phone me then i will discuss this picture with you in depth. here is my number 082 760 8620

hope to here from you soon.

Hi itsarap,

There is a shad derby on Friday to Saterday in the Southern Cape. How is the shad biting on the wilderness side. Would help if I could get some info from you.

hi there

i haven't heard of big shad com out in the last week. I can tell you where to look for them.

1. Vic-bay off the peer is a good spot but expect lots of fishermen there for the comp

2. if you walk past the peer right to the end of Vic bay you will find a spot where the surfers clime in, they call it die brood (the rock that you see there looks like a loaf of bread.)

3. then you have truter se bank or known as elf bank or stink clip. this spot is a bit difficult to get to and a bit dangerous. you walk from Vic bay along the train tracks thru the first tunel and on your right you will find truter se bank that you must clime down to. but again please don't go there alone as there have bin recent attacks on fisherman and backpackers. and if the sea is ruff don't even bother, in the last year and a half 7 fisherman have drowned there.

4. then you have klein brak and groot brak you will find your shad or elf by the rocks just ask the locals how to walk to the spot.

5. then you have Harold's bay there are many to choose from just follow the guys with there rods they usually help out as-well.

there are many more to mention. the best would be if i was in your position is to go to Vic-bay at about 3 the morning and drift bait for shad you should hook into them before sunrise or on sunrise.

hope this helps

Hi guys. Unfortunately I didn't catch anything this morning and left at around 4am.
However there were two guys fishing in front of NSRI who caught a nice cob of about 5kg's.

Hi Guys
I was planning on fishing Truter se bank as soon as possible after arriving on Saturday evening (just need to get my hands on some fresh bait) just to break the mombakkies. I have never fished there, but all my internet fishing (especially on sealine) has indicated that this is the best spot to get a couple of elf. Now I'm not so sure any more...

hi guys

thanx nyathi, but its not necessary i do it so that one day we all can be standing at the beech or in a bar or at a House with a braai discussing the big ones that we lost and the small ones that we caught.

i hope that we can arrange to meet sometime at the beech it would be cool.

report for this morning.

the sea is good to fish in waves are small and no dumpers I'm thinking of going for high tide on Sunday morning. for the guys that want to join in fisher, nyathi, maverick give me a call you know my number.

Hi Guys

At last it's almost time to get going.  Another 45 minutes and my last meeting starts.  Should be an hour or so, and then I'm outa here!

::S

I plan (unless someone tells me the fish is on somewhere else) to fish my first session at Victoria bay off the pier or walk around to Truter se bank on Monday the 15th in the evening around sunset (from about 5ish).  I will drive there during the day to see what it looks like and try and make some judgement about the risks.  I also want to get some bait on Monday during the day.

:fishn

If anyone wants to join me you are more than welcome.  I'll be wearing a shirt with my avatar on the back, so you cant miss me!

Itsarap, I'll call you on the way down, so we can have a chat about catching some fishy thingies. I'll also take my laptop with me to keep in touch with sealine.

:wfish

All that remains now is to wish all of you lines so tight it makes that beutifull singing sound all day long...

Hey Itsarap

Goodness this meeting is boaring!

082 923 3026

My name is Stefan.  Look forward to meeting you guys!  I will arrive about 16:00 on Saturday evening, so I guess I will be pretty shot after the drive.  If I had to go to work on Sunday morning at 3:30 it would be impossible.  To meet you guys and be at the sea, well that's an entirely different cettle of fish (Excuse the punn).

Will you be fishing the hole at nsri on Sunday morning?

I went out with a friend about 2.30am to fish this hole again. Unfortunately it was very quiet with only a few bites. There were two other ballies fishing it and they also caught nothing, but the one ballie said he caught a cob there last Sunday and Monday night. So they're around.
