    Default Fishing...and my "Other Woman"

    Some time ago i walked into a second hand shop an there this stunning Profisha 575 was lying. 2 days later i bought the kayak at an absolute steal.

    A few weeks later started Kayak fishing after i gave the Supermodel a make over.
    When she came to me she was Carbon black. Felt it was a bit dangerous going out and playing in the shipping lanes and where commercial boats just dont care whats infront of them. Sprayed the front and back with a nice bright orange and she was ready for fishing.

    She has not disappointed. The places she takes me to is just breath taking and of course all the fish that i get off her.
    Rock and surf was good and relaxing...This is just a completely different level.
    And of course the scenery from the water is just amazing.

    Ek myself het al daai tipe van visvang probeer, ek het in Qatar een gehad maar dis nie regtig lonend nie, om hier vis te vang van 'n kayak af is tyd mors. Aan die ander kant gaan ek nie waag om hier in Mosselbaai omgewing op 'n kayak te wees nie, ek hou nie van die idee dat een van di groot tande manne dalk net wil kom nuuskierig wees nie, paar youtube videos gesien waar hulle die kayaks kom inspekteur.

    Sakkie you are far too old to have another woman in your life.That ski is butt ugly. I am prepared to come down from Durban and take it off your hands

    What is the fish in photo 8.? I didnt realize you had such a strong paddling community in the Cape.
    Dont you have big surf to get through and dont the greatwhites think your ski is a big seal. I would paint the whole bottom orange.
    Stunning photos. You cant explain how therapeutic paddling around is even if you catch nothing.
    Those skis cost about 20k for a non carbon version.

    There is a big group of Kayak anglers in the Mosselbay areas.
    The sharks are not that bad...Just dont fall off

    Pic 7 are Katonkel or skipjack and pic 8 is Yellowtail(Albacore I think the durbs guy call it), Both are delicious to eat, Katonkel is very expensive around Easter because it is a local fish and the mense like to use it for pickled fish.

    I know...BUTT ugly.....
    We are a very large group down here in the Cape and it is growing in leaps and bounds . Anybody interested more than welcome to contact me.

    As for surf launches...In the Cape we are fortunate to have 3 Anchor bay Slip, Buffels Bay slip in Cape Point Reserve, Simonstown and Strand. All of witch does not have any real surf brakes.

    Witsand is a different story. No defined Shore break, mid-break or back line...You think you through and then a wave of 2m + hits you just there where you thought it will be ok. The sandbanks move continuously over there. So makes for a very interesting launch with a kayak. This year with he 7th annual Witsand kayak comp we had e few ex Durban boys here. They reckoned a Beach launch in Natal was a walk in the park compared to Witsand

    Full carbon ski was a year ago R38k. But eish look at her lines. She makes a long 10km + paddle a breeze.
