Hi 7/10,
I like the description of the weather predictions in your posting. Mind telling which weather site you get the info from?

Hi PH.... Buoyweather, it a pay site but worth the spend, I find windfinder (free) is also very accurate for our area.

Fish quite far to the south. Saturday was not a good day. Plenty of blanks. Top boat had 5, next had 2. Very good weights though - smallest I heard of was 82. Unpleasant conditions as well. There are tail at Rocky Bank though and the snoek are back in force.

Ya we were out yesterday again, but for tail. cancelled on the deep. Fish were very far out but again very few. heard of a few longfin, and one or two YF.
 
We made the right decision because there was a great days fishing for tail at rocky bank. the fish came up after 2pm and it was mayhem. bit 8kg class fish boiling on the surface. often we were 4up all on spinning gear. was reefed a couple of fimes by some busses.
 
Its a real pity that some pple mess it up for all by rushing onto the fish and getting the shoals to sound. happened time and time again

Was invited to come down to cape town to fish on Dr Fish.
Weather was supposed to be great but looks like the weatherman had got it all wrong!
Nevertheless, Dr Fish always gets the fish and this time was no exception!
5 YFT for the daygiving an average of 90.6kg! :rck"
Thats not alot of fish but good quality stuff!
I managed 2 out of the 5, 96kg and 93kg. im completely stoked, was an awesome experience for me!


Thanx to Miles and crew!!!


oh yeah, picked up 20 or so Yellowtail on the way back on bungees, good fun.
