Deep Sea Fishing Durban 29 July 2013

Went out on Monday for a morning trip of bottom fishing, early there was a light SW and we made our way to our first waypoint. As I was stopping the boat we saw a small Sailfish chasing some bait fish and jumping clear out the water.
As the day progressed the SW picked up and made for a very uncomfortable sea.
The SN current was screaming and the boat was drifting at 3 knots and sometimes even more and even at 30-40m we had to use 1Kg of sinkers to reach the bottom and at 50m we could not get to the bottom.
We managed some Slinger and Soldiers and we also got taxed by sharks on all decent size fish.
We also got a nice Kingfish which we released
Sharks have been a reel problem of late !!!!!!
