Big or small I appreciate them all. This little big eye kingfish was extremely adamant on eating my plug as it smashed it a few turns into the cast and then connected on the second hit a few turns later... Needless to say I've thrown a plug a few times and this is my first ever fish on the top water, it really is such a adrenaline rush🎣🐟πŸ’₯πŸ’¦πŸ˜Ž

Why do we fish you ask? We fish because it is in our blood, because it is our passion! We fish because it is part of our DNA it is who we are! A moment like this when the line is tight, the drag is screaming and the rod is bending. That is what makes all the early mornings and late nights worth it! Planning, learning,failing and ultimately succeeding! #zoolookfishing #shimano #stella #horizonzero #assassinrods #bending #southafricanrockandsurf #southafrica #landbasedfishing #shoreangling #fishforever

Not the best photos in the world..but not a bad fish for yesterdays league. This duckling couldn't resist the octopus bait presented to him. Horizon zero xh paired with a Stella 20k. Jdb 50lbs. Amazing all rounder combo! #zoolookfishing #catchandrelease #duckbill #shimano #assassin #assassinrods #horizonzero #stilbaai #stillbay #southafricanrockandsurf #southafricafishing #landbasedfishing #landbasefishing

Nothing in fishing is more satisfying than luring a spotted grunter to smash a top water lure, followed by a special bond for a few minutes and most importantly a safely released fish. #rapalaxrap #rapala #assassinrods #surfacelure #artlure #topwater #spottedgrunter #halfcentury #estuariefishing #gratitude

The camouflage on these skates is incredible !! They disappear on the sand. You can't really see where the skate starts and where it ends πŸ€“ #fishing #southafrica #rockandsurf #shimano #saragosa #assassinrods #horizonxxh

Throwback to this beautiful Spotted Ragged tooth shark (Catcharias taurus) I tagged on Struisbaai Plaat in December 2016! This shark was recaptured near to Vleesbaai a year later in December 2017!

Mark recapture science for the win!

One of many #cubera snapper on the last night of the Feb 2018 Gabon trip. I have honestly never experienced such madness and mayhem fishing stick baits at night from the beach for the most part of half an hour in my life!! 🎣🎣🎣 it took some time to decipher their feeding patterns in accordance with the tide and bait that they were predating on, but once it was figured, the action commenced.. Amongst many lures tried, the 160mm CID Shiverstick sinking stickbait was pretty much the only lure that worked during this session. Color of lure made no difference as the action seemed to get the bite. @bigfishinsta @ifishafrica @world.of.fishing #catchandrelease #sportfishing #lurefishing #nightfishing #surfcasting #assassinrods #spinning #cid #shiverstick #sinking #stickbait #shimano #stella #braid #cuberasnapper #quickpic #handlewithcare #letemswim #holdontight #letsgofishing #gabon #africaseden

A rare Dusky for our coastline, 4 hounds and a butterfly. Definitely well worth skipping gym πŸ’ͺ #fishing #rockandsurf #catchandrelease #tagandrelease #assassinrods #horizon #zero #jdb #braid #shoreangling #shimano #smoothhoundshark #duskyshark #shark #stingray #bostonterrier
