Stock Fish Derby 2012

Post by wille jan » Tue Apr 24, 2012 11:00 am

Halo chaps.
Yes it is the anual Stock Fish derby this weekend 27April to 1st of March. At NOORDHOEK SKIBOAT CLUB. "The Wild Side"
The comp is 2days fishing and rest is fun fishing. I am fishing on Sea Monkey, a 6.2m Supreme Craft, owned by skipper Bret Potgieter.
First prize is...R 25 000 and awsome other prizes.
Last year SEA MONKEY almost made a cleen sweep, Staying on the podium with the prize giving. No its not a small comp, its huge.
Unfortunatly it falls in the same time a the TUNA CLASSIC.
Vryday will not be a fishing day, bad winds, but Sat and Sun will be perfect days with a light easterly forecasted.
Many entrants and club members will be camping at the club, i will sleep at home. I have learned my lesson in 2010 when I was shore bound, due to the "baboon soup".
I have made my bait to cach that crocodile for that R 25k.
My Cam will go with and i will post some photos. I hope to see some of your cape town friends there some time, if not i will post you an invite for next year.

The best days for fishing is when its raining and when it's not.

@ wille jan, since you're a commercial and targeting hake, I would like to ask a question, what is the biggest hake/stokvis you've ever seen? I remember as a kid having to fillet a stokvis my father brought home in Mossel bay which was huge, they caught them with 10/0 snoek hooks, and sometimes even 11/0's. If I had to make a guess I would guess around 8-10kg, it was as big as a young cob.

yes, I also do have fond memories of big hake we used to cach in our area.
But these days they are in the 1 to 5 kg range.
There is some photos at our club of 10kg crocodiles, but the long liners do get them bigger
We fish from 50m to 120m for them, deeper and the current *&^% you up and you cant feel the bite.
At 75m with a bit of a current, the bite is more of a scrach on your line. The new age sirkel hooks and braid gives you much more of an advantage.
I hope to get a 10kg one for that first prize.
They were dik a week or so ago, but vanish as quick as they apear.(love colder water and a easterly)

The flair was fired at 08:00 on saturday morning signilling the mass start of the stokfish derby.
Plus minus 70 boats headed in every direction possable.
The sea was perfect, water temp 16 deg.
Sea Monkey started of well with a 3.1kg stokfish weighed in at 16:00, wich earned us the second place on day one.
With a 3.4 kg stokfish taking the lead.
A 5.5 kg geelbek was weighed for the geelbek prize.
The heviest bag was 7.6 kg and was weighed by Black Pearl.
We fished hard both days and the stokfish was just about every were and al the boats had cought their quota of stokfish and also carpenters(Dogs).
The weigh in at two on sunday was a bit confusing, due to the pamflets misprint, But an anouncement on the 29meg notified all boats.
The weigh in was nile biting.
Firts prize went to Wild Seas and skipper Gorden Jnr, with a stokfish of over 4kg.
Sea Monkey earned 4th prize.
Lots of prizes was handed out and even the papslang who got his braid tangeled up in another boats anker rope, got a boobi prize.
First prize was R 25 000.
We were blessed with a pleasent atmosphere and fine weather.
An unexpected anouncement had the croud chearing as on theusday another compo, first prize R2000 for the biggest doory(penhaai).
