This is a brilliant lure for yellowtail.  It has a fantastic bouncing action on the water

4 Sure!

But watch that snake in the second swell when the rods are in the upright and you are trolling 5.5knots and you will see how that thing snakes in the swell. No spoon trolls like that man, gets me excited just thinking about it.

The Snake for president!

The reason why I'm so sold on this lure is probably because I've mainly caught my (not so many)  tail on it.  Definitely will try the snakes next time I get out there

Minnow Did you get to put your spoons in the water?

For that matter did anyone, Ajay, Snowman, Orange get on the water.
Only thing I heard was that there were some Chokkka at Simons Town this morning. Patrick said the fish were scarce, can well believe it. We made the right call not going today. Said the bay would be flat and unfortunately thought the fish would be scarce so I am glad I re-wired the boat and messed about with rod holders and cupboards etc. Just some general maintenance and stuff that would make life easier at sea when the bit IS on.

Cheers
HT

Didn't get out there today as the water's too cold.  Might head out to Gordon's Bay tomorrow for some rock & surf with a couple of spoons in my bag and my dropshot rig in hand.  With all the westerlies the water should be warmer on that side of the bay

There were all sorts of boats out there but no Chokka when I got out:?

The water temp has returned to normal along the SW side of the bay but still very few fish.

Not sure what time they were there, just know of a few CBSC boats who got some. When I chatted to them it was around 11 or so. Not even sure of how much they got.

These westerlies are now beginning to try my patience a little!!!:swear:headb:swear

First sign of S. is Wednesday, only a little bit. ;)  YD actually had some S.E. of about 15knts for 4 hours.

There were a few chokkas in the morning (and the week prior) but none when the water warmed up.

I need to watch my P's & Q's here so no further comment  (ever) on guys enthusiastically trying to catch YT in 12 degr. water.:doh:babee
