His handmade lures where quite successful in the BF15, some other fish were caught on them too.

The season has started. My brother got a 500lb blue on saturday in the transkei and garry Thompson (from CT) and mates dropped one. The blue was taken on shiamnio tyrnos 50 with 50lb line on purglas bg50. 6.5 hrs to land, no harness (its in my cupboard). it sounded and died with all 700m off the spool) 5 m left, when it died and took 4 hrs to lift. good effort with the 2 others on the boat not knowing how to drive a boat, just being guided by my boet. Fish ate a mold craft supper chugger std in green and pink with 9/0 chains

That's a fantastic achievement - no harness and having to plane up a fish. Well done indeed!

Tim, He is broken. His back is finished, blisters and arms are shot. Luckily I gave him the gimbal bucket I had just redone or he was really going to have been dead.

Hi Sean, Yoy going with Wayne again? We fishing North of HITW, just short of PSJ. Seems some yellowfin around so probably explains the marlin around, chasing the food.

Hi All

Heard that 2 marlin were landed west of Hout bay one off Reel Thyme and the other off Delta 1. Not big but good sign of things to come this February.

Cheers

BW shows 22deg and blue at both the Alphard and the 100m drop off on the 12. Wont be long now so long as the SE gales stay away. I reckon as soon as the Skippies pitch up in no:s its worth an early shot!

Backline, Capt Dan had a 150-200kg black steel one of their Yellowtails on the "vlak bank" and the divers also spotted one there as well.
