I am Vice commodore of Shelly Beach Skiboat Club where I have been fishing as a natal captain for a couple of years now. I am currently trying to get my SADSAA colours. I am also a member of Nomads Deep Sea Fishing Club so that I can fish in some other competitions as well.
I was introduced to competitive fishing by a friend and it instantly hooked me as you fish against other people who are mad enough to fish with 10 kg line. Only after a while, I started seeing results with fishing with lighter line and what you can actually pull on it. I am a gamefish and Tuna angler by demographic but nowadays I prefer the light tackle bill fishing as it is so much more of a challenge. You will never forget your first big fish on light line as all you have learned along the way comes together.
