Good day Peter Blace, you mentioned 'Bullets' can you elaborate a bit on that please?
when I die, may my wife not sell my fishing tackle for what I told her I paid for it... and I have bought more, a severe case of TA

Thanks for the report Pedro... Nice little stash for the pot.
Forgive me Father for I have spinned... It's been three weeks since my last cob session.

We did the usual hi speed trolling (http://www.ultimateangling.co.za/index.php?topic=21782.0)  using one Demon Tackle bullet and a lure from the US (ballyhood wahoo express).

Sorry, missed this post.

Not really. They are not fussy, but I tend to use dak colours and contrasts..... black/blue, red/black, orange/blak...

Game fishing is on fire here. Good catches of YFT (plenty of taxes being paid!!!), couta and other pelagics. I'm sure the bills are around fatting up on the yft as well!!!
