Re: Cape Town Yellowfin Tuna Open Tournament

I finally made it home late last night. What an awesome time in SA, despite the weather. Aussies and I made it out on Tuesday 18 miles past Cape Point in some 15ft seas (if not bigger), and 20mph winds, in a 25ft boat, before skipper decided to turn around. It was definitely not safe for diving. I have never seen seas that big, and it was supposed to be one of the "better" days to get out there

HUGE thanks to organizers (Craig, AJ, et al), they really went out of their way to accomodate us. We will be there next year. I stocked up on fresh gear, tasted some phenomenal food, met great people, and will be diving in Mozambique and Coral Sea next.

Wolf

Re: Cape Town Yellowfin Tuna Open Tournament

Welcome back Wolf. Sorry the weather stayed un-cooperative. But, at least I don't have to endure big Tuna pics saying "see, if you would have only stayed!"

I'll second that. I knew I heard some strange stuff coming from the Aussie's room.

Re: Cape Town Yellowfin Tuna Open Tournament

Zak & I had to travel all the way up the coast to Umkomaas before we eventually found diveable conditions. Went out this past Sunday at Aliwal Shoal and had a great day with wahoos everywhere. First drift resulted on 4 on the boat. Best of the morning was this one of mine at 24 kilograms. First shot with the new Pelaj Kanji railgun...an awesome shooting machine, deadly silent and very accurate.
