It was this big!! (arms oustretched) ;)

Postby Jamster » Fri Apr 13, 2012 11:35 am

Ok guys I know this is a little off topic but I was wondering if any of you guys and gals have some cool fishing photos or photos of your catches.. I used to go fishing with my grandfather until I was about 7-8. I recently got myself a permit and have been fishing again and really enjoying it, so far I have caught stompies, black tail, a small black mussel cracker and plenty barbel, so nothing good yet but I am hoping that this winter will bring good fishing. My girlfriend did catch a little "skaam-oog" or shy shark a couple of weeks ago :)

Always time for a bit of fishing! We do a lot of tiger fishing, mostly in the river...but catching barbel is the best! It's nice seeing the tigers jump but they don't fight like a big river barbel !

Now we talking...

I got a bundle of sushi on Monday this week off Durban... my mate got a nice shoal cuta as well, and the lighty got a hammer head of about 10kg, sadly we lost 4 other cuta to the tax man... :smt011

Also Spent 1:30mins fighting a "something" that took a hammer head I was hooked into as bait, it ran me down to the bare spool 8 times and took us on a 4.5km joy ride trying to keep up, sadly the steel -parted so we couldn't id the monster, am thinking a Zambezi of over 200kgs as I couldn't even turn it on 80pound line... :smt017

Very cool guys keep them coming :) remembering that the barbel we get here are saltwater barbel and dont get very big or put up much of a fight. Really want to go do a bit of deep sea. Ive got two really sturdy deep sea rods that used to be my grandfathers.

Went on vacation with my grandmom, and my grandad's familt, brother's sisters and cousins and so on, not a patient man so fishing is not my cup of tea, managed to catch a few fish. my fishing expidition, will look for photos as I have 2 of the fish. :D

Blue hottentot
Under size muscle cracker
White Stumpnose
King Klip
Sand shark
Kol Stertjie

The weirder catches included puffer fish, klipvis, a rock sucker klipvis, with a huge suction mechanism on its belly, quite interesting, also caught a wilde perdjie with my hands, and a kolstert with my hands, a few octopusses, and a little cuttle fish :D

The wilde perdjie was a baby which swam in a rock pool, the kolstert was in a rock pool, and was undersize, but a nice one, also caught 2 or 3 baby kol stertjies :D

I enjoy the sea, but no patients, so fishing is fun but not as successful as I would like it to be :D
