What happened to the handle? Epic trip man, very jealous! :) edit.. duh oh yeah it ended up in the drink! How did the reel perform other than the left-handed handlining incident?

You can try the local agents or rather try get hold of Zebco international's customer service..I've had much more luck with them for fin nor parts. They did not even charge me and gave me freebies and much apology and it arrived express courier within the week..this after waiting on local agents for 6 months for a part and giving up! Actually after all that I don't even think in the end, the local agents never came through LOL..
Thanks for this info, I will contact them in the new year. The reel has performed great on a few trips, it is a beast, pretty heavy and not as smooth as a Stella, but a proper tractor when reeled in the right direction  :nuts:

Thanks nice to know mate..I have one, brand new in the box still, spooled with 80lb and waiting for me to throw a popper to a cape yellowfin..My back hasn't been up to that lately, a harness and 50w seeming like a much better plan when I've been out! A tractor when reeled in the right direction! LOL hahaha

Hi Cranckman.
Only back now and read your report
Great fishing
Please let me have the details of charter you used. I have contact quite a few and only Island adventures came back to me.
Although they respond they were unable to do me a price quotation
Thank you :envy

Hi pumbaa.
I was with Brent (owner and skipper) on Island Adventure Charters - this was my 4th or 5th trip with him. He has been on a bit of  family leave but they are back at work now. Try contact his wife Tracy on info@islandcharters.co.za
I have shopped around in the past - my honest opinion is that they have the best boat, skipper, crew and prices for St Lazarus.
Sadly this means he has got very busy so one must book almost a year in advance.
Shout if you are looking for extra team members - I am always willing to fill a spot and share costs.
