How To Fit A Fish Finder

Does your wife think you’re having an affair? Do you always come home blank after blank, no proof you’ve been fishing? Then it’s time you fit your kayak with a fish finder!!

“Fish Finder” is a miss leading name, suggesting you can simply FIND the fish. The finder is used more for determining the depth of water you’re in, if there is reef and structure below your kayak, water temperature and to find bait. The last point is key, having the best baits in the water will improve your catch.

Once you’ve installed your finder and using it, remember to look after it. They take a beating out in the sun and salt for hours on end. Wash it all down with fresh water, let dry and spray silicone on the exposed bits.

Here is an old pic with my finder (got a nice couta that day).

Salt Rock Kayak Comp

In 2013 The Fishing Freaks were lucky enough to crack the nod to the 3 biggest kayak fishing events on the east coast of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The Salt Rock comp is one of the most eagerly anticipated fishing events.

The Salt Rock Kayak Fishing Comp is sponsored by Ballito Toyota amongst many others, and they have put up for grabs a brand new Toyota Hilux! HOWEVER, there is a “catch”… to be in line for that awesome vehicle you have to catch a king mackerel (couta) over 28 kgs (62lbs).

A special thanks to Shaun Reid and Fishing Corner for hosting such a fun and well supported fishing event. The Freaks look forward to the 2014 Salt Rock Fishing Comp.
