Cape Town 2007 part 1

Post by BarraBeast » Thu Dec 20, 2007 11:58 pm

Did a 1 month trip to CT to see relatives and my other son, Tiger(6). The weather was fowl most of the time but we got 3 days out on the water.

Tiger and I chartered a local game boat and went loking for Cob(jew fish), yellow tail(similar to our salmon) and Snook(like a makerel).

After Tiger gave the deckie(with 30+ years experience) a good serve on how to chop the burley, he got stuck into one Cob after another for about 2 hours. His little arms were worn out so we spent a bit of time trolling Seal island. This is where the Great Whites hunt the seals and where all those breaching photo's and documentaries comes from. We saw many nurvous seals but no Sharkies. Tiger(always up for some adventure) wanted to swim over to 'pat' the seals, as any good father would, I talked him out of it.

more pics to come in Cape Town part 2.
