    [Durban] we has an almost full strike and fought all the fish to the boat, there was 1 line remaining in the water, we had 14 Sarda and 6 Bonnies in the hatch.

    About the Marlin, the Hammerhead and 7 Tuna by Mike Laubscher (4/10/2019)
    [Durban] we did not want to hook up a Hammerhead Shark and so Erik started reeling in that line, but he was too late and the line went tight, the rod bent and line slowly peeled off the reel, nobody wanted to fight the Hammerhead Shark and Kurt decided he would accept the challenge, he got into the chair and Erik handed him the rod and Kurt stated winding and as he gave the rod the first pump, things changed somewhat and suddenly the reel was screaming and as it went into the backing

    Dorado on Spinning Tackle for Nawty Girl by Mike Laubscher (3/05/2019)

    Oceanic Bonito’s in Abundance for Fat Girl. by Mike Laubscher (3/05/2019)
    [Durban] On days like this there is always that one Bonito that is going to play games with you and when you get stripped into the backing and have a long 30 minute fight you are so disappointed when you discover it’s not that big Tuna you thought but a foul hooked Bonnie.
