Quattro King of the Sea @ Pumula Hotel

Last weekend The Fishing Freaks were deep down the south coast of KwaZulu Natal at Pumula Beach Hotel taking part in the 4th annual Quattro King of the Sea hosted by GoFish Magazine.

Leading up to the contest the chatter was mostly revolving around the forecast Windguru was predicting. Howling easterlies, massive seas BUT a few reports of great catches.. Dick and I (Wez) spent the week making traces and changing rusty hooks with great expectations of croc couta screaming off in the early mornings.

The event was a massive success, we had a great time “carboloading” and sharing fishing secrets with our new angling friends. Watch the full video of The Freaks @ Pumula:

The Freaks Gear UP

It’s Thursday and one more sleep before we (Wez and Dick) register for the Quattro King Of The Sea Pumula fishing comp. We said last week how Windguru was so behind The Freaks… Well I’m not so sure they feel the same anymore, what do you think of this forecast?


The next three weekends are all competition weekends and you know The Freaks will be there. This weekend being the HIGHLY anticipated Quattro King Of the Sea hosted by Pumula hotel and GoFish Magazine. If you haven’t entered yet you better do it today. If you’re not fishing you’re welcome to bring the family and enjoy the weekend with us, there should be some fresh feesh on the braai (that 12 in a row blanking HAS to come to an end).


So the big question is, which vessel will be the KING of the SEA? Jet skis, boats or kayaks? I’m voting kayaks 🙂


Here is the forecast, yeah we can see the swell too…


How will The Freaks do in that surf??
