Results from the 4th fresh water kayak fishing competition of 2009/10

Hi Guys,

The 4th fresh water kayak fishing competition was a brilliant day on Saturday the 20th of Feb. Whoever could not make it on the Saturday joined on Sunday for a social fish.

Good old Roodeplaat proved difficult to fish and we only managed to get Barbel. There were many Bass and Kurper around but were not biting.

The official results:

1st. Brian 3 x barbel    -   50 points

2nd. Reinhart 1 x barbel   -   40 points

2nd. Gareth Low 1 x barbel    -    30 points

All other entrants gain 5 appearance points .

Thanks to all who attended, it was a great day!

Look out for the big Loskop comp in March!

Loskop Kurper Bonanza, it is important for me to highlight the following for all kayakers:

Basic safety on any water is important and to enter this particular comp, all that is required is as follows:

 Life Jacket

2.       Towing/anchor rope of 30m. (A 1.5kg anchor is all that is required)

3.       A signalling device – i.e. cell phone in water proof bag, whistle which is normally attached to life jackets and or horn etc. Should anyone on a kayak be in need of support, they simply need to be able to communicate and create awareness. It would be a good idea for kayakers to fish in pairs or larger groups.

4.       Paddles of course – lol.

5.       At least 1 litre of water

6.       A small first aid kit in case of cuts, abrasions and hook injuries.

7.       Lastly – eye wear for uv protection and protection against snagged hooks that may come loose and shoot back into ones face.

That is all these guys need. I am sure that most if not all already have most of this equipment.

Please re send comms to all as this is a great comp and anyone on a kayak also stands a chance of winning the R200 000.00 boat and or many other great prizes. Persons fishing on kayaks have in my opinion a great and added chance of success due to the stealth factor.

Lets try get a crew of kayak fisherman together and take that big prize.
