I’ve been wandering for a while now. Does seal island in false bay attract game fish such as yellowtail,katonkel etc such like it’s larger cousins robben and Dassen on the west coast side. If so why are there never any reports.

Tail yes - migratory shoals Feb - May when conditions are right and there are also some resident fish.
The normal areas to work are smaller than a rugby field - if reports were published can you imagine the chaos.
As it is off the "beaten track" to the point, not many guys give it a go. York shoal and East Shoal also fall into the same category.

Couple of years back , I hooked into a Thresher , more towards maccasar .

Not a big shark fisherman , but this one took to the skies , was very cool ,and made light work of my light tackle .

They're also known as the poor man's marlin - used to catch them a lot off the rocks between Gordon's Bay and Rooi-els.
We all come from the sea, but we are not all of the sea. Those of us who are, we children of the tides, must return to it again and again, until the day we don't come back leaving only that which was touched along the way - Chasing Mavericks
