My old man has twisted his ankle and 2 of the other guys that come out with me are both unanvailable.Unfortunately I feel the boats a bit small to fish 3 comfortably and I normally fish only with one other so theres only space for one for tommorrow .

WEATHER DEPENDANT but looking good .If it has to get cancelled for ANY reason AFTER I have confirmed with someone, then sorry but sh1t happens and I will try and make it up to them some time in the future if theres a gap.

Have to share costs.... Juice and launch costs shared.Normally trolling works out R400ish total (R350 plus 50 launch) so R200 each unless we head out further then the juice gets more. Wont be more than R600 total so R300 max each possible but unlikely. More likely to hang around near the Bellows and out a few miles and maybe Rocky bank.Might stop and drift while spinning and jigging and then juice will be less.

If we get lucky,I make final calls about who gets to keep any fish boated.I wont be a chop about it but its my call nonetheless.I am definitely not turning back if you feel sick either.Also EARLY HANGOVER FREE start .Dont need to bring any tackle.Must bring valid licence .No drinking. No smoking .You board ENTIRELY at your own risk.First come first served and your money doesnt buy you guaranteed fish but it gets a you a days fishing up to probably about 2 or3pm. There were some reports last week and Hammertime got 2 nice tail last friday but I havent heard any reports from this week so I cant tell you what the chances are. First mail first served.

Are you launching from Millers tomorrow. I have to be at club for registration tomorrow at five. Launch is at 6 but we can't put a line in or chum until eight. Are you on VHF 71? I will give you a call and let you know what I pick up. Or maybe hook up at the parking lot tomorrow morning, What time will you launch? What boat or name am I looking for, PM me.

I did find tuna close in yesterday at 12 miles if you are interested. The sea was nasty yesterday morning until around 12:30, then it was nice. Think it will be a repeat tomorrow. Lots of bird/bait activity at the point in the morning only, but I didn't stick around, we bashed our way 30miles out. The run to the point was not lekker from the slip especially at the dumping ground before buffells onward. Had one or two break right over the boat and you can't lean over the side and touch water on my boat, sits and rides high out the water. Rocky bank still has some fish, and they were averaging around 8kg earlier this week, not to sure about thurs or today. If I were tailing and the weather played ball, go directly to rocky. Remember those little silver spoons you bought - BINGO!

If the sea is flat tomorrow and you want to make the run to the tuna , I will sms yesterdays co-ords in the morning. It's league so there will be plenty other guys around. Or call me on 71. I will be close at first and then bugger off deap later if the fish sound. If keen bring 3 or so 5kg boxes of fresh pilchard. The longifn are there, mainly on back lines and spinner, but if you can hold and bait them you're in for a jol. They are around 12-17kg and thick.

Hope you guys get out and I hope you hang a couple. If I wasn't having to fish club tomorrow I would have joined you. Nice to not be a skipper for a day. Plus you could fish 4 or 5 times on your boat to my one fuel bill. 90 nautical miles yesterday at 2.0 litres to a mile.

Hey HT----AArrrghI guess the bad sea doesnt  help with your ugly fuel bill.Thats completely out of my budget pal not to mention the fact my old Johnsons would probably just shrivel up into 2 small piles of carbon dust at the thought of 90 miles. Also I am not getting to the tuna for that money!! Roll on the day I can afford a pair of Yammie 4 stroke 50s........or maybe just a bigger boat with 40 miles rating.....

Good to hear you are having some joy out there though. Thanks for the tip on Rocky B. Thats almost certainly where Ill head.Whats the temp?? I am on a little Icom vhf handheld so if youre within 5nm or so I should pick you otherwise 29meg. Going to try for 6ish as well but it sounds like its going to b a scrum. How many boats about ?? If I can find someone Ill see u tomorrow.

Shot Nepps. Make a plan with u 4 another time.
