Hi to all


Going down to Van Stadens River Resort for the March school holiday.


Where's the best/closest place to buy bait?

If you fishing for sharks then catch your own bait e.g.: grunter, shad etc. You can buy sardine and chokka in around PE before you get to Van Stadens.


There is Alcock's, Trophy Tackle Den, Commercial Marine and loads of other smaller mom and pop shops in the area.

Best bait is at Oom Snorre. He sells from his house. In Cosmos street opposite the small park in Linton Grange. A close second is Trophy Tackle Den.

I think it is 5 Cosmos Street Linton Grange. I unfortunately don't have his number. His wife is running the shop. They are almost always open. Only Sundays they are closed.

Nou ja.


Booked in on Saturday, fished Sunday and beaches closed on Sunday  <: [size=78%]. We had to leave on Monday at the latest.[/size]


Drove back to Jhb on Monday.


Shortest trip ever for me.


Will use the time and service my reels and wash, clean and sort out all my fishing stuff.


My son got a nice blue stingray and a duckbill. Dad only got two sandies.

Hallo everyone.
So it is one week later and we are under lock-down. We only fished the Sunday morning and I had the pleasure to meet Pieter and his laaitie. I managed a juvenile Steenbras and that was it. With the resort closing you feel robbed of a holiday. When checking out I really felt for the staff. There are 11 employees and all are sole bread winners. We do not know what is going to happen going forward but I ask that you keep them in your prayers.


Until next time.


PS Pieter as die k*K oor is moet ons dai bier stamp! :rck"
