Go ask uncle Simen how many times the Sharpnoses stripped them in the Spêrgebied

Any part of the earth's oceans hols the Mighty Great White at some time or another.

There are definitely GW from time to time but I doubt the Bull Sharks will come down past the Cunene.

Big Bronzies 200kg+ are the tacklebusters 99% of the time the other 1% I would suspect to be GW

Cold water with large seal populations would probably mean some more Great Whites from time to time but PLEASE DO NOT swim a Seal.

Aqua, yeah I think with that you have a very big chance!!! Only problem is you will need a swimbait of about 30kg to swim it out very deep?

I wouldn't look to a steel leader in Naminbia with those swimbaits.

Rather a 1.6 or 1.8mm with a 2/0 Jap power swivel to connect to the swim trace

order from commercial marine, they will have a mustad catalog with hooks that are available marked and you can choose the ones you want. Or VMC hooks. Or Enigma hooks... plenty places to get them
