Very nice Drazil :thumleft:

Nothing better than a bike trip and fishing  :thumleft:

I agree except for climbing out of a tent in morning, groan , creak, fluke  :lol8: :lol8:

I need to go fish and take pictures but to me there are only 2 artificial lures which I will buy and I have used many:

1) Halco Max - cast and trawl

2) Redhead Rapala Magnum - trawl

I will get back to this thread with fresh fish soon (I hop  :peepwall: )

Will have to go and look for shots later - I've been fishing the Bushmans River since I've been a snotkop, and have caught many Grunter, Kob and the occasional Leerie on lures.  Will never forget my matric holiday (1994) sitting in the evenings on the Sandbar floating restaurant and catching loads of 2kg kob.  Had one biggish one take my lure and just ran all the line out while watching in disbelief until the line knot broke off from the spool.

Can't wait to get back there in the June/July holidays for some more fishing!

You're on... We'll most likely be staying in PE for a night or two after the EC Bash. I'll take you up on that long-standing offer / threat to wet a line or two.

...and why don't I see your name on the Bash list?

Cheers till then. D

John... many thanks for the lekker evening we spent alongside the river. Unfortunate that the fish weren't biting (properly) but at least we got to sort out the few pints  >:D

Hopefully we will be able to repeat this soon. It's good to have a mate like you!  :thumleft:
