most of the lure fishing stuff you know will be transferable, i dont know if the jerkbait style of fishing hit South Africa though so that may be new
Jerkbait style of fishing??? Us South Africans only started wearing shoes & socks about 5 years ago... LMFAO Razz
No seriously, SA is quite advanced on the fishing front and all the latest fishing trends are known and readilly available. I think very little remains a secret for long nowadays with access to satilite tv and the internet.
On a positive note, I have got all my gear together and will be hitting the water for some serious piking bright and early tomorrow morning................. will let you guys know how it went.
Will also be going through my pics this afternoon and hopefully be posting some more fishing pics from SA this evening.......

Well lads, you asked me to post some more pics of fish I have caught over in South Africa so here they are...........(my apologies for the quality of some of the photos)
Firstly, my Cob of 40Kg's (88 lbs) which I caught at 7:00am on the morning of 13 January 2007 using an octopus/pilchard mixed grill bait.
The monster took me 45 minutes to tame but unfortunately could not be revived for release after capture and sadly died....... Crying or Very sad
These formidable fish frequent the coastline as well as estuaries which are permanently open to the ocean. They have been known to grow in excess of 70Kg's but these leviathans are few and far between and sizes from a Kg to 5Kg are caught as the norm.
They are a preditory fish which will readily take lure and livebait as well as a variety of deadbaits.....

Next, the "White Steenbras" which I have caught up to 14 Kg's (30,8 lbs)...............(once again, apologies for the quality of some of the photos)
They are strong fighters which can strip large volumes of line from the reel in surging bursts of brute power giving the the reputation of being refered to as "the steamtrain of the ocean". Again, they frequent the coastline and estuaries of South Africa and are also known for their annual "run" on the coast of Namibia (Skeleton Coast).
Their diet comprises a variety soft baits which include marine worm, prawn, crab, shellfish etc.

how did i do my leg good question im not sure myself i knocked it in work on sunday on a trailer and swore a little but carried on working for another five hours on ityes it hurt but not seriously so

got home (painfull driving home ill grant you) and couldnt walk up stairs so im kipping on the floor down stairs as we have double couches (doh)

the knock i hadseems most likley but i stuggle to believe so much damage can come from something so insignificant

ive seriously hurt myself in teh past and known about it right away the only one i didnt was when i 'broke' my rotator collar, cuff whatever its called in your shoulder a little fall rock climbing did that. i did carry on climbing for a few more hours though on that trying to 'walk it off' as it were

Jeez lads..............sorry about the delay in responding but my bloody laptop decided to crash!!! It's sorted now and I am very much back on line.......
Sorry to hear about your leg Noodle.................hope it heals in a big hurry 'cause I think the pike bug may have bitten me. Laughing
Went to the spot which Noodle recommended but did not even get a chase on a lure, although I did see two young pike which would not be enticed no matter what I tried. I must however be honest and say that I would have been extremely surprised if I had caught, considering it was the first bit of fishing I had done in ages. All considered, it was still great to be out, throwing a lure about, and generally enjoying nature and the fresh air!!!
I tried to have a chat to a couple of blokes down there but nobody seemed overly friendly so I just stuck to myself and enjoyed the outing and experience.
I will definately be returning again this weekend to give it another bash..........
Once again, thanks for the tips and advice thus far..........

Duane

well the place he is going too is in wiagan and the locals still eat pike (im not kidding im from wiganish) so the will either be idiots you get everywhere or posibly seriousish pikers, and dont take this the wrong way duane.

they may have thought this new chap with a strange accent was after taking pike for the pot

No worries chaps (Hakuna Matata)........................... I am as thick skinned as a rhino when I wat to be and don't let those type of things bother me - I am who I am and if people aren't prepared to even give me a chance before jumping to conclusions and judging me, then it is their loss and they are, in my opinion, not worth knowing anyway.
I don't have time for politics, personal issues or uninformed sensitiveties.........with me it is a case of "what you see is what you get"..................I welcome friendship but will not beg for it.
Bottom line is that it won't stop me having a good time and doing a bit of fishing.
Uhmmmmm................I think it is time for me to get off my soap box now??? tongue
