At last the curse of summer seems to be lifting, albeit only slightly. The forecasts look like there might be a wave on Sunday and Monday. Nothing gangbuster, but at least waves. Saturday would actually be the pick of the bunch, expect it's east - how unusual!
And of course I'm pretty sure the surf will cook on Monday, as I have to be up in Joburg for work. I can almost guarantee with a 100% certainty that every time I get on a plane the surf arrives, so I don't see why Monday should be any different! Have resigned myself to being the surf sacrifice. So to everyone who gets waves on Monday - remember to say thanks next time you see me.
Fishing lately has been just as uneventful as surfing, not much happening other than some idiot Vaalies who still don't really getting this whole boating deal. Trawling up the Krom yesterday from the mouth with 2 rappies out, and were just chatting about how nice it was that all the Vaalies had gone back home and that the the river had returned to normal.
Well, in a moment of pure irony 1 minute later some muppet roars out the canals into the river and moers right past the back of our boat - and proceeds to snag both our lines, pulling Garth's rod right off the flipping boat! Goodbye fancy ass Shimano rig, R3000 set-up off to a watery grave thanks to some twit who has absolutely no idea about boat etiquette. AAAARG! Some ou's seem to leave their brains on the jetty when they get into their boats....
Anyhow, things are looking up - pumped my first blood worms of the season this arvie, and managed to get some tapeworm too through sheer luck. So holding thumbs we'll catch fish tonight....Would most certainly prefer to be catching waves, but fish is a close second!
