Title: Show your catch ! Fishing only !!!!!!!!!!!!
Post by: GlenInk on September 13, 2010, 12:50:03 pm
After this thread appearing http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=55878.0 I though to myself why not start a thread where one can show one`s catch?

Fish that you have caught . . . Not your buddies fish !  :deal:

Can be any form of fishing, Deep sea, rock and surf, rivers, dams, bass fishing, tiger fishing, pap gooi ect. . . . .

I`ll get this thread started with a rainbow trout and a bass caught in my area . . .  :mwink:

Stywe lyne  :thumleft:

Yes you right! I had to use handline on the ship, now way you can prevent them from going under the hull with a rod and theline will just cut. We used 80kg handline and caught snoek, bluefish and giant yellowtail! Still gr8 fun though!

Pragtige fotos van 'gister se jare'!!

Ek dink nie heeltemal dis global warming se skuld nie, ek dink dis maar n geval van te veel vis uithaal. Ons het dan tot Chinese trawlers suid van Marion eiland gekry  :deal:
Ons mens'dom'....maar visvang bly lekker, byGough en Tristan da Cunha eilande is dit nog so maklik, trek snoek met handlyn van die kant!

My visvang ervaring is maar beperk tot babers vang met hoender en handlyn. En so een keer 'n jaar op vakansie biedjie lyn nat gemaak by die see en daai plat haaie gevang... Ongelukkig vang nie een van my vriende of familie vis nie, maar ek het dit altyd gelove. Ek sal graag hier in die Boland wil begin flyfish, maar soos ek sÍ ek het geen freaken clue oor visvang behalwe dat dit lekker is nie.

Enige pointers vir 'n wannabe, is daar clubs wat noobs inneem, lesse, kostes? Of dalk nuwe thread begin?

Daar is net soos die WD's ook n fisvang forum in SA. Ek het nie daar aangesluit nie, die werk in die buiteland hou my te vas en ek ek verkies om meer opgedateer te wees met die motorfietse. Google dit raak, daar sal jy al die inligting kry en natuurlik is daar die Stywelyne' hengel tydskrif maandeliks op die rak. Geniet :thumleft:

Geelvis is die beste om te vang. Hulle fight erg. Ons het altyd Skandinawiee drif toe gegaan en daar gaan vang. Party keer was daar so baie dat daar nie rerig drink tyd was nie.  ;D

I don't do fishing well - don't have the patience. And I don't do prawns very well either...

I went out with my BIL and a friend over December to get my lighties to the fish waters (they each got a rod for Christmas). This is what they caught:
Our little one (3 years old) with a strepie:

Learning to cast is simple, people make too much off it. Must be taught the proper basic's though. I was lucky to have had some guidance from the late Jack Blackman - and that gent could cast a fly.

One for Woolly Bugger.

First ever trout on a fly today after deciding to take it up at the bash.
Rozenz gave the advice in Himeville and I landed my first one on a woolly bugger with a sinking line.

I saw some were feeding of the top and the next one was taken with a dry, a royal wulff, the fish taking it on the surface was one of the coolest things ever.

Thanks Dark Moll.  An excellent way of giving non fishing friends a glimpse what it is all about.  I have had difficulty in explaining why I do it.  Why I "hunt" and capture the fish and then set it free.  Deceive the fish in it's own environment with some man made imperfect representation of food that it eats every day and then release it again. Why I an so concerned about landing it and getting it back in the water as quickly as possible.  Why I am so careful that it is not harmed and that it survives.  I can never get  tired or seeing a fish swim away unharmed and, maybe a little wiser (probably not) after being released.

Daar is eenetjie in die vrieskas met jou naam op. Ek het elke liewe aand vanaf laasweek Maandag tot gister aand vis geet.

-Gerook
-gebakte snoek koppe
-kuite
-gerookte Katonkel (Atlantic Bonito)
-bebraaide geelstert.
-geelster rou voor die man by die vlek plek wat my wou leer en toe ek 8 visse vlek en hy 3 toe sny ek so stuk uit die fillet en kou dit en vat   so  sluk wyn. Daai man was stom

Ek het al daardie vis aan my ouma's en vriende uitgedeel in die dorp. Ek geniet dit om mense vis te gee wat dit waardeur.

Things have been a bit quiet on my project, so I decided to take my 3 geologists fishing last week at Tree Ferns (Dullstroom).  None of them had ever flyfished before, but they really enjoyed themselves, up at 5AM to hit the water!  Each guy caught at least one fish (and I broke my personal best for a day: 8).

The dead ones were all eaten (and very much appreciated!).  Most were released to go on living (take what you need or can use only).  Dead fish are only a terrible sight when they are not used, or if they are from an endangered species. If dead, and to be eaten, they should be celebrated as part of the cycle of life.

Rainbow trout are not indigenous and its ok to eat fish because they dont have any feelings.

Also take out all bass, they are vicious and destroy habitat.

One for Woolly Bugger.

First ever trout on a fly today after deciding to take it up at the bash.
Rozenz gave the advice in Himeville and I landed my first one on a woolly bugger with a sinking line.

I saw some were feeding of the top and the next one was taken with a dry, a royal wulff, the fish taking it on the surface was one of the coolest things ever.

Gister af gevat nadat ek die naweek gewerk het en hulle my verlof wil laat verval.....

Ons is uit na die "Canyon" " dumping Grounds" so 60 N.M vanaf Kaap punt.

Baie lekker dag.

Ons het Geelfin Tuna geteiken en ek het 'n nuwe Geelstert setup op die boot gehad. Terwyl ons stop om aas te laat sak vir Geelfin Tuna speel ek en my pel wie se boot dit is met ons Geelstert stokkies......Ek haak toe 'n stewige Longfin Tuna een helse lekker fight en 'n vuurwarm katrol.

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture144-1.jpg)

Ons kon darem 2 groot tuna's in die boot kry so +- 75 kg en 68 kg.

(http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i399/Anvilracing/Picture146.jpg)

Die dag afgeeindig naby die wal met die mooi Geelstert.

Soms is die geluk net aan jou kant. die vorige keer uit het ek 0 visse huistoe gebring en 3 verloor.

Oja ook 5 blou haaie gevang tussen die Tuna's.

Nova Scotia where he went has very strict rules in place.  

They only dish out 40 permits to charter per year.

Each boat is only allowed to catch 2 Tuna per day.

If you catch #1 you have to report back to harbour master with time, size and GPS point.

Then only can you go out again and catch # 2.

All the above are on a strict catch and release policy.

Each charter boat is allowed only ONE catch and keep per annum.

You need to apply for this 24 hours in advance.

Once the skipper has the permit to take one out he has to catch it in the next 24 hours.

He may release catch # 1 if he feels that catch # 2 could be bigger,

Cor tells me that a 600 lbs Tuna brings the skipper and crew approx $ 40 000 USD............. however a 10000 lbs could bring up to $ 120 000 USD as the fat content and richness of meat is much better.

The Captains of the charter boats pay their whole season's costs from this 1 per annum catch.

All the charter income is pure profit.

As a matter of interest .... the entire trip including flights, food, accomodation, charter and drinks cost him R 30 000.00..... for 6 days...



His trip to Gautamala to catch Rooster Fish and Sailfish cost a hefty R 70 000.00 for the same period.

He did the two trips back to back......

Went to Stilbaai for a week in December.

Ek het 2 Kolsterte direk na mekaar uitgetrek op die een dag, en die volgende foto was die volgende dag, toe trek ek weer 2 kolsterte uit, maar hulle was baie kleiner. Die 1ste twee het ons gebraai en geŽet, hulle proe soos kreef! Yummy!

Dis bietjie moeilik vir my, want my verloofde is nie die vis vang tipe nie, maar hy was awesome om elke keer vir 3-4 ure by my te sit!


(Ps...Ek was 11 toe ek my eerste vis gevang het, dit was 'n Galjoen!)

Here is a carp.I cheated with my fly stick and put a small piece of dough on the fly and settled the bait on some weeds where the carp were feeding,good fight.

Take this list to The Fishing Specialist ask Keith for discount  :biggrin:

Kingfisher Poseidon Cobra jig 8ft + Shimano Stradic 5000 FI/ Shimano Sustain5000FE

or budget that works

Shimano Vengeance 8ft 3oz + Shimano Shedona 4000

30lb Powerpro or Suffix braid (not that other black shite)

60lb leader

Then I will hook you up with a contact for the best spinners. Get 2 surface plugs in pink and some trebles and clips that will be enough.

I have both. Only thing it is like a DS jacket you always buy cheap then you wished you didn't and the R800 jacket sits in the cupboard.

My Oom  you want a spinning reel (grinder) and a spinning specific rod. The technology has evolved so much these rods are carbon outside and rubber inner. You flick a spinner of the boat 60-100m as you get better. The old 10  ft rods and multipliers cannot cast as fast, accurate or far continueosly.

Pete in the days when I used to throw spoons, lures etc I used a 12-13ft surf rod with a daiwa 40 and 3 ounce spoon, could also throw a rapala with weighted hooks , small stick with light lures just never gave me the distance. I presume you are spinning for yellow tail, notorious for reefing you when hard pressed so you need a stick with a bit of back bone and heavier line. My 2c

Title: Re: Show your catch ! Fishing only !!!!!!!!!!!!
Post by: Fario on April 17, 2013, 08:05:24 am
Cane rod and Hardy reel?

Not quite. The rod is a modern day copy of a Garrisson and the reel is a replica Vom Hofe. The line I am using is a genuine braided silk line.

I went through a retro phase a few years back and assembled a set-up similar to that which the fellows used a hundred years ago.

Lovely to fish by the way, but not quite as versatile as modern day graphites.

I have also built a cane rod but my brief romance with split-cane is over (for awhile, at least).

The trout pictured was caught in the Eerste River above Jonkershoek. Note the lovely water clarity.

Of course I know Ed but he's not capable of fishing streams anymore. (I fish with the younger guys :))

Setup: 7.0 foot 4 weight

I also do a lot of flyfishing in KZN. Base myself in Nottingham Road and fish the Bushman's, Loteni and Mooi.

Nope, I tried with a trace but found that it casts like crap, so used 8kg mono instead.
got bitten off a couple times, but found that if you make sure that your line hasn't been nicked after every take there weren't any problems. These tigers were only in the 1-2kg range, for anything bigger a trace is probably necessary.

Big Bend - the van Eck dam

Nice little spot, set in a nature reserve, has crocs though, & a Hippo that cased me away from my favorite spot a couple of times.
I was fishing from a sit on top Kayak, & had a very productive weekend, evven though most of the locals have packed it in saying that the tiger season is over as of last month...
My dad has been fishing there for many years, & rcons that he gets about twice as many takes when fishing from a kayak compared to a motor boat...

I never saw the hotel ,our family was of the first white SA people ever to holiday there, the first to build a read hut there and there was no road from the lighthouse to the beach. We would leave for home at the end of the holidays .close the door and wedge it with a piece of wood and come back 6months later with everything in the hut still in tact , tin food and bedding and all .
I went back there in 2010 for the first time after the war again and was sorely disappoint  :'(
I saw the ruins of the hotel that had come and gone for the first time then  :'(

That was my tjommie from the farm next door ,We made read pipes and smoked paw paw leaves together ,I think it was the paw paw leaves that made him so maar  :biggrin:

Don't know got the email from a Buddy.
BTW I towed my Boat "Offshore" to Pomene about 5 Years ago, ffs that was a Trip to Hell especially the last bit after you turn off the En1. It took me a whole day to fix the steering on my Boat because of all the Potholes on the En1. The fishing was excellent. That was one of my best Trips ever.

Yup , just under 100, took me 4,75hours to land it, became tail wrapped and died which was a pity. Towed me about 5kms from where I hooked it to where I landed it. Super stoked to have landed it, a once in a lifetime fish.

Caught some big sharks 200+ from the shore which pull hard but that marlin on that tackle was unbelievably strong

Something you will cherish for the rest of your Life. To be out there on the Ocean on a boat, never mind a Jetski, catching a Marlin is a big deal in anybody's Book. I was fishing off Sodwana a couple of Years ago when my Buddy thought he saw a red Flare. We reluctantly changed Course and trawled towards that Direction and eventually came across an Ou on a Jertski who ran out of Fuel about 6 km's Offshore. :eek7: We gave him some Juice and off he went on his merry way. You Guys have big Balls.

Post by: Robster on March 20, 2014, 05:44:08 am
Hullo Offshore,

I wouldn't say 'big balls' , there are lot's of guys who fish off them, it is such an easy craft to launch and fish off , it is really a pleasure. jet skis are so fast and agile that launching them even in cheeky conditions is easier than a boat and then once you are out at sea if your ski is rigged like mine with pods or tubbies as we call them it is a very stable platform.

We always fish in pairs and have a VHF radio for comms as well as all the safety gear that a category D skipper/boat requires, so in theory we should be safe. We also carry a cell phone with us, so that worst case you can call the NSRI.

I really enjoy mine and have caught lot's of good fish off it here off our KZN coast as well as in Mocambique. if you ever come to Durban and would like to experience fishing off one, i will gladly take you out.

ROBSTER

Wow Thank you R that is very gracious of you. To me there is no Sport like Deep Sea Fishing. At one Stage I owned a House at Sodwana Bay and I was there at every possible Weekend. I eventually sold it and towed my Boat to Mocambique every now and then but I have since moved to the Cape and sold my beloved Boat. Like yourself I have caught Marlin. Sailfish and most Gamefish and I treasure these moments like nothing else.

Milkfish. Pound for pound the most potent fighter there is. It is basically a big, turbocharged harder that does not ever give up. That fish fought me for 45 min with 30lb tippet😫. Muscles screaming in agony. We have had similar fish that have taken 1.5 hrs to land. Definitely not a springer.
Title: Re: Show your catch ! Fishing only !!!!!!!!!!!!

Some pics of my Marlin that was cought in Dec by myself and my son, we were the only ones on my boat and the fish died and we loaded it as a result of that. I went on eith the fish at 11 o clock the morning and only managed to get the fish to the boat by 13.30 after it had three runs of about 700 meters each time, the fish weighed 205kg and it took us one and a half hour to load the fish between the two of us, I was never in my life as tired as that day after loading the fish we managed to load it from the back between the two motors at 15.00 that afternoon.

I was fortunate enough to do a spot of fishing on Lake Victoria, Uganda.

Nile Perch in the lake are not particularly challenging, remind me of an over-sized bass although they do breach once or twice trying to throw the lure.

It's a private dam just upstream from Warmbad Dam. (Bela-Bela or whatever they call it now...)

I've made the suggestion a while ago about maybe getting some Dogs together somewhere for a fishing weekend, seeing as there are quite a few of us.

They change Color between blue, Yellow and Green. You can tell the sex of the Dorado by the shape of the Forehead. In Draadwerk's case it would be a Male because of the steep slope of the Forehead, Females would be a less angled shape, same as Elephants.

Hey Roxenz....  That's a very good sized trout!
River fishing?  :thumleft:

That size in that area, I would be surprised if it was river fishing.

It's a stream (small mountain river) in the mountains where long tom pass is. Private water belonging to folks with lots of money. Stream has weirs in it, so a mix of pure stream and pools created by the weirs. Farm has its own hatchery, so they stock some fish over 4lb. Not wild fish, but sizes range from parr to  +6lb. Large fish hold in deeper pools, in proper stream sections (ultra clear water) the fish generally don't go much over 2lb, although my friend took a 4 pounder from fairly thin water. Fish are healthy and fight hard and dirty. I got smashed by two fish bigger than the one I kept. Undergunned by using 4X tippet. I'm very lucky to have a syndicate member as a friend, who invites me a couple of times a year. Awesome place. One pool below a waterfall (difficult to.access) makes for electrifying fishing - fast aggressive fish that slam any sunken fly presented into the white foamy water at bottom of water fall. A real "honey hole". I wanna go back!  :biggrin:

Today I got my PB Black Bass.  :biggrin:

Small pond, about the size of a tennis court. Absolutely no structure, so just dragged a soft plastic across the bottom with a very small lead weight (1/32 ounce) to keep it down.

Got picked up, and it jumped clear of the water 3 times! Absolutely awesome fight! I dragged it up the grassy bank, took a few pics and gently released it back into the water. Swam away strongly. Nice!

I didn't actually measure it, but guess about 18 inches at least, and weight between9-10 lbs! A real donkey!

Line was 30lb braid, 4.0 hook, and a 6" dead ringer in purple colour.  :thumleft:

I went deep sea fishing Sunday. We went out into the edge of the Gulf-stream, the colour of the water was beautiful, a deep purple-blue...

It was about 25 - 30 Nautical Miles offshore from Sebastian Inlet. I got a couple of nice King Mackerel, and a Dorado. The Bluefish was taken off the bottom on our way back in about 90 feet of water.

And no, they were not released.  :biggrin:   We had fish for supper Sunday night and Monday night. Froze the rest, for later consumption.  :drif:

Everything more than around 300g 250g ...errrmmm OK let's just say anything bigger than small ....just ignored with me .Farted around all the dams and pulled out 1 or 2 and a good few inexperienced "just-more-than-fingerlings around the weirs
....  until Monday morning when I decided ahh fskit! just go with the  trusty woolly buggerz and to hell with that fancy shyte

Unfortunately if you've caught fish in estuaries or the sea, then a tigerfish will disappoint.

That said, I still enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the experience whilst fishing in their habitat when I was based in the Caprivi many years ago.

I found some of the bream species in the Zambezi to be a better fighters especially on light tackle.

Very nice fish Wooly, I'm jelous  :biggrin:

I caught myself looking for a place in Underberg/Himeville the other day, my Dad used to have a farm there on the Umzimkulu river and I still rate it as one of the best fishing areas in the country. Really miss it. It's just too far for a weekend jaunt from JHB though.

Snappers, 14 (limit) in 3 hours. Plus a few Trevally.

NZ red snapper is the best eating fish in the world IMHO.  :thumleft:

Plenty of long weekends. Make a plan? Kamberg is close to the Big Smoke. Plenty of good places to stay for cheap. Just avoid KransAap's place in Rossetta. He is a swindler of note and will drink all of your beer.

When you have the right gear it is not too bad. Some okes battle some use technology.
I think it is called "Black Magic"

Would have loved to show my pics but the 2 I caught here in the Groot Marico River on Sunday both got away unfortunately.  Reeled them in - had them on the ground - the hook came out and splash back into the water.  But I am going to try this afternoon again - watch this space!

Got this one today.

My personal best for sure.

15lb braid with 17lb Flurocarbon leader. Purple wiggly worm with a little flappy tail soft bait.

4 jumps out of the water, wasn't happy about being caught. My shoe is a size 11, and next pic may hand is touching the fish.

I guestimate at least 24 inches, and around 12 - 14 lbs.

What a jol!

This morning at work I measured the length of my work-shoe. (the one in the pic)

It is 13 inches long.

So re-looking at that fish pic, I guess it may be closer to 28 inches  :eek7:

Anyways, this afternoon I made another turn at the pond. Got another nice one. Not as big as yesterday, but still an awesome catch  :biggrin:

I do declare the spawn "over"  8) :imaposer:

When on the farm, I could also quickly jump in the van and go and chase some fishing time, now my kit is just gathering dust.
Glad for you that your quality of life is so good and thanks for sending a smile to SA!

Both are.

But the little Mangrove snapper was just tiny, although legal. And the Redfish was waaaay undersize.  They have to be between 18 and 27 inches long.

Please explain. Are you not allowed to keep them when they are over 27" long?

Nope. That is the "slot-size". I can't find an official reason why, but I guess that less than 18 inches is juvenile, and over 27 inches is breeding size?

I've mentioned the Spotted Garfish in my USA thread before.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotted_gar

Part of my research into how to catch them came from a couple of YouTube video's showing that a small surface lure can snag them.

So a few days ago I stopped off at a local pond where I have seen Gar swimming before. I spotted one feeding on the surface, and cast a small surface popper in his direction. As I retrieved it past him he attacked the lure with vigor! However it was only on his fourth hit that I was able to get a hookset.

Back on the bank I also learned something else about these fish... THEY STINK!!!  :eek7:  :eek7:  :eek7:  :imaposer:

Anyways, another species ticked off.. Just a small-ish one, about 18 inches total, and skinny, about half a kilo / one pound.

Stopped at a small local pond on the way home this afternoon to chuck a line in and de-stress.


Bagged this awesome Bass. My shoe is 13 inches long...

As you can see from the pic, it took a purple rubber worm with a hook-tail. Cast it in, let it sink to the bottom (about 6 feet deep) and very slow retrieve.

The fish was moerofa pissed off that it got caught, fought very hard, jumped clear of the water three times, and took line off the drag several times until it tired.

After the quick pics I revived it carefully and then it swam away strongly, so I can hook it again some day.  8)

I got a nice Spotted Gar in Turkey Creek yesterday.

Was about 3 - 3.5 feet long. I wasn't going to chance those chompers, so I cut the leader and let it go.  :eek7:
