Thats a first. Maybe you should have used a stronger bite trace. 200lb carbon coated should do the trick.

I suppose it could have been you?
If the surf is 10' and cooking, well then go fishing somewhere else or enjoy the view!
Yes I surfed as well, we didnt go toss sinkers in at "super tubes", and theres lotsa fish there too!

hi Riymos.point taken about the mutual love for the ocean.the sad part tho is that fisherman and the sport are not taken seriously.we enevitably have a raw deal.let me explain.i fish regularly on the piers at the durban beach front.we are hounded by da parkies,beach patrol and the s a p.we have limited fishing areas and it seems we are given limited fishing areas so we can b policed easily.show me an area in durban where a fisherman can go for a family decent and peaceful fishing outing.mind you the authorities are getting a healthy income from permit and licence revenue.miillions really.i ask what has been given back in terms of education,competitions,fascilities and support.

on the other hand we have da surfer who pays not a cent in terms of permit.flaunts all da rules pertaining  to surfing near bathers,keeping their surfing distance from da  piers and leave da vast durban coastline and decide to surf a few meters in front of da fisherman.that to with arrogance,punity and decodence.and dare a fisherman try to make a humble and polite request.da abuse from surfers,followed by a  beachpatrol vehicle and sap on da pier with threats of arrest and closure of pier.

the surfer has all the privledges,support and protection from da authorities for free.for good measure they are also given a surfing week on da citys sporting calendar.fishermen r caut hook line and sinker^^..

This is becoming a tennis game.... "surfers are right, no fisherman are right, no surfers are unethical, no fisherman are unethical, surfers smoke pot, well fisherman stink.....etc etc etc etc"
Getting tired of this now

Live and let live

Thats a bit unfair surfamike.I think he has the right to express his feeling regarding this issue and what he said is wright. where do surfers pay or contribute for permits, and i believe that surfers have become extremely arrogant in a way towards fishermen, just look at what happens at Vic-bay thats just plain arrogance to say the least.

And i think the topic is to here the minds of us fishermen about this situation. if you see it as a tennis game then don't read the thread if it irritates you.

P.S I'm not trying to piss on your battery please don't take it up wrong.::respekt:

I have had annoying experiences with surfers
at certain beaches. Sure we all have rights to
enjoy our pursuits in the ocean, but to specifically
come surf in front of fishermen is stupid and dangerous on their part. Especially if the fisherman has been fishing the spot for hours before they turn up and take over. But like all people you get good and stupid, apart from swimming out to them, you just got to pack up and go somewhere else.
