Hi guys, as a response to many frequently asked questions on this forum, in an attempt to capture some of our experience for those entering the sport, and distilling some of the great feedback from you guys on this site, I have put together a "fishingski101" web page. Feel free to use any of the "10 Tactical tips" as a reference. This is not an attempt to be the final word, but rather provides "way-points" along the way towards the mark of successful fishing! Check it out, at this stage you have to insert....

http://www.fishingski101.co.za/wp into the URL.

Note: It is intentionally not interactive as sites like this one adequately cover this aspect. The format used works well on any smart phone.

Thanks, need to do some updates on the info, especially in terms of Kayak options. With regards to the GW incidents - bear in mind - two in the last 10 years or so of regular Kayaking.

Unfortunately there is always the possibility of encountering them, but I think if you use common sense and steer clear of GW "hotspots" - eg. close to Cage Diving and Seal Colonies then you can minimise the probability.

Dont paddleski or surf off plett..I see more GW's than seagulls when I fish there! No jokes, I counted and filmed 17 different ones the last time and two of them were just keen to eat me even though I was 30m up the cliff and hung around for hours cicling below me, they would not go away and had a K@K aggressive attitude. I wouldn't want to meet those two while on my kayak. No joking.. Read "strike", third edition I think, for some fishy tales of a sharky kind to make one rethink things.

Ja don't go kayaking anywhere near any seal colonies..and if in plett, only in the rivers..ja been more than one kayak hit since my last warning and there were a few before that..I've seen SOOOOO many gw's there. Check the latest drone footage somewhere on the net of the GWs chasing seals the same way a leerie was chasing my plug yesterday, my kayak is smaller than things GW's eat and they are an active apex predator..eish..maybe I'm paranoid but I will NOT kayak in the same spots that I used to surf in..Surf there now..? haha I think those that do are F-king mad! haha
