En steeds bly jy op die storie...

 

In die winter is daar nie haaie nie. Ook nog nie gehoor van 'n koei op die riwwe gevang is nie.

....dit is een van die lekkerste en lagwekkkende maniere van hengel. Die stories wat dit veroorsaak.

Die meeste wat ek nog ooit geskrik het......was eendag voor op die riwwe.......toe ek opkyk en hierdie brander sien wat aankom........van amper droog staan.......tot swem......hierdie brander het my hengelmaat wat op die strand amper gestaan het......in die sloep ingetrek......hy het uitgekom.......minus n stok en katrol.....nog net eenkeer so n frats golf gekry......wees maar altyd versigtig........langbeen water vir die riwwe is vir my amper n defnitiewe NEE.

Ja "ks"  -  dit was laas Sondag nogals effe langbeen water, maar ek was so lus vir my eerste keer, dat ek dit nie kon hou nie en dis hoekom Dirk my na die makker plekke toe gevat het, maar jy's reg - dis seker hoekom ons mooi "afgehaal is" deur daai skielike groot brander en dat Kliphard hulle dieselfde oorgekom het asook 'n paar ander Sealine manne by Ganzekraal soos Jakkie report het ?

Ek sal moet gaan vir swem lesse !!!

Wilhelm, ek het nou net met Dirk afgespreek dat jy tussen ons kan staan. Die haaie eet van die buite kant af binne toe, so jy sal veilig wees. Jy kan dan sommer ook aan ons hang as die brander jou wil afhaal. Op 'n meer ernstige noot: Moet jou nie bekommer oor die haaie nie. Dit klink baie erger as wat dit is. Jy moet jouself geniet, dis wat tel. Kom saam. Jy sal dit geniet.

Kry jy daai vaaljaste net daar diep by die buitenste riwwe, of kom kuier hulle ook by die vlakker riwwe waar ek net 'n paar gallies soek?

 
there are no limits... they come in quite close.;)
the smaller ones of about 1m-1.5m are often closer in.

If it hits you you stay hit. We both swam after this hit I'm sure.

Nie 'n goeie teken dat jy en Dirk mekaar ken nie - klink soos 'n sameswering en ek gaan "vir die tanne gegooi word " !

Werk julle dalk vir dieselfde firma in Stellies, want dan vermoed ek dat ek weet wie jy is ?

Hugo jou vuiluil en ek dag jy doen net heeltyd huis oor ?Ek het nie geweet jy Sealine ook nie - julle manne wat so by die see bly het mos nie tyd daarvoor nie - hengel eerder voor en na werk !

Nou is ek behoorlik in die bollie tussen julle twee manne - die outsize my en die ander outswim my terwyl altwee my out-experience !

Toemaar, ek's meestal lucky genoeg dat die vissies by my byt omdat hulle dink hulle gaan wegkom.

ek gaan net nie 'n hel so ver uit soos ek jou laas dopgehou het nie !

Terloops, ek kan nie onthou nie - dra jy die shinguards met die straps of die soort wat saam kom met 'n dun sokkie move ?

Personally I use heavier tackle during the Cob season, because of the Spotties and Smoothies. I know it is an overkill, but I use 0.55 mainline and 0.7 hook snood with a light sinker line. I prefer to go heavier (one size fits all) so that I can land the fish as quick as possible. You also don't want to walk out and come back in, except if you land a fish bigger than what you can manage.

Got 2 gallies en two kolsterte on Saturday. The one kolstert was a bus. Lost two other fish.

At one stage I was standing on a pinnacle about 60 metres behind a guy who was fishing from the Pypies in Makouvlei. I aimed for the foam directly to his right fishing with red bait on the pushing tide.

Something big picked him up and after a strong tussle he landed a cob of (I guess) approximately 12 kilo's. Quite a while since I saw such a beautiful specimen landed from the reefs.

Shin pads - I use those pink one from MR Price Sport. Long design with 2 straps. Wear it under my wetsuit otherwise you'll get funny looks from the beachgoers!

Rod - Purglass 400/4 cut down at the tip to 13ft6. Bulletproof rod for the reefs. Catch everything on it...like I catch a lot of species?? Smoothhounds, never caught a gully shark on the reefs, duckbills and cob.

Reel - Torium 30 pimped by Keith. Solid leather washers giving a drag of about 5.5kg. Lots of grease inside. Services it once a year - AFTER reef season. It doubles up as my 0.55mm heavy tackle reel. I keep my reels down to a minimum and rather spend money on bait. Therefore I only use 1 reel for heavy tackle fishing - reefs, sliding, mountain or cow sharks in thick kelp.

0.55mm Ultima Red Ice mainline. 2 duckbills over 68kg and numerous smoothhounds, I'm sold on this line! 1.2mm T Line leader. Soft, makes a good knot but very abrasion resistant and strong. It is after all 1.2mm! I pack 4 or 5 leaders in bank bags.

1.2mm hook snoot an arm length long on a nr 2 power swivel. 0.50mm sinker line. 9/0 silver Kendal round, bent off centre and filed sharp. Make up 4 or 5 and put them in bank bags. Throw the bank bags away after swimming, rinse off traces and hang up to dry. Put them in new bank bags. I've tried vacuum packing traces in bags, but I've given up and just replace the bank bags.

Cob - 2 x nr 1 circles on 2 nr 2 3 way swivels. 0.60mm hook snoot only 15cm long. Brilliant trace especially for those small cob you mostly get on the reefs. If it bites, it's hooked!

Jis Blaasop - I missed out on Sunday, but apparently it was only the real hardcore boys that survived out there on the reefs ?

A friend of mine reckon it was 95% swimming and 1% fishing - when I asked him about the other 4%, he replied that it was a mix of bleeding, drowning and "drinking" salt water, with the last two sounding very similar to me ?

Please remind me to check the swell prediction on Windguru, BEFORE ever taming up an invite to go reef hopping !

Well done with those fish under tough conditions !

@Blaasop:
You sure it wasn't at HermansGat that the guy caught it? and yes, it weighed something like 11,-something KG's.. perhaps even 12. It was a fat fish according witnesses.
Good signs.
saw few guys out on Sunday - prob due to the strong water on saturday.
I was out sunday - water packed a punch on those reefs. haha
(oh, and you the guy who got that bus Kollie...)(ni(ce(fish)(

Mr Havana, the last two weekends the water was exceptionally strong and I suspect it has something to do with the fact that we are approaching the equinox.

Anyway, I trust your experience has not put a serious dent in your enthusiasm and just want to assure you that conditions can be quite benevolent as well.

Hopefully we see you ::jdchk on the reefs in no time again! After all, we were born during the hippy era.

Noddy, here's the thing...I also know that as Herman se Gat, but some of the locals consider that to be Makouvlei. Some of the names can be quite confusing and, among myself and my fishing buddies, we also christened some spots for identification purposes. Obviously those names are alien to everybody else!

Be that as it may, that was really a nice kob, in peak condition. I watched him when he landed it and thought it was in the region of 6 kilo's. Back on the beach the actual size really came as a surprise. And kudo's to him for landing it as well, because about 10 metres out runs a submerged reef parallel to Pypies where I lost a very strong fish a season ago which kept cruising behind the reef, refusing to budge.

Were you fishing with Jurie?
