Nice... We opted to go to sandveld... and yes we got the same storms and fishing outcomes as you okes got. Saterday night's storm was the storm from hell!!! Our biggest was 8kg with a few pulled hooks, biggest carp of 3kg... fishing was disappointing too

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the report! As long as fishing won in the end!::S

We had the same weather being at De hoek but I must say the fishing was fantastic! I dont know where the rumor came from that the place was fully booked because we were about the only people fishing the section closest to the wall. We didnt land any monsters but we got lots of cats between 10 and 15kg's. I got the biggest carp which was just shy of 7kg's.

I put out a couple of "Cheetah" baits and man do those barbel hit them hard! Difficult to hook them but the bite is something else.

We must definitely look at organising a social there next year.
