Guy MountfordHiiiiii.
After chasing fish fish like a mad man, then not being able to fish (I assume due to work) and blanking 4 times in a row, catching that Tail at Robben to break that dry spell, beats any katonkel for me. Yeeeeeew. Lekkers bruuuuuu 🀘

Dewald de WaalDie rob het gegaan vir sy vis, toe byt hy mis en by die kayak raak. Toe sit die ding se tande vas aan die kayak!https://katonkelronkel.co.za/wp-content/uploads/fluentform/ff-0ea0afc0781d6127c969f4011f6c40b3-ff-WhatsApp-Image-2021-08-10-at-12.18.44.jpeg
Jason HectorSealed with a Kiss!
Say no more!! lol

The reel started screaming [ZZzzzzzrrrrrrtttttttt!!!!!!] and I thought I was on!
I start fumbling like crazy to get the ratchet off as quickly as possible to avoid the seals coming in and getting taxed!
To my immense disappointment I find a juvenile seal had taken my favourite and most successful 120dd.
I try to get him as close as possible and in the process he thrashes out of the water for this fantastic pic attached.
I however still feel terrible for leaving a lure in a marine animal.
James JohnsonPaddling in horrible weather at 3A and still catching 3 katonkelhttps://katonkelronkel.co.za/wp-content/uploads/fluentform/ff-ad56a94b457d2907317376f52403bd36-ff-03D4BFD2-A327-4800-AEBC-0F3E08069526.jpeg
AndrewWhale popping out and then diving again RIGHT in front of his kayak - literally about 2m away from the tip of the kayak. Unfortunately no pics of this - but the image and the words are forever imprinted in my mind - LoL
Danelle VivierNominated for loosing two slenders (double up!).
Almost getting tipped on their first run.
Loosing the first fish by dropping the gaff and trying to pick it up by the lure.
The second fish was lost when the line was cut on the only piece kelp in the vicinity.
zack and his dadImpressed by this father and son fisherman duo. this young man is respectable in his approach and quite humble, but the opportunity for father and son to fish together and get quota on Monday was pretty special and impressivehttps://katonkelronkel.co.za/wp-content/uploads/fluentform/ff-b2cf15ec7a068642c9fe9ff39aa0eae6-ff-zack-and-dad.jpg
Scott CooperLaunching his brand new 575 and flipped after 10m!!

Zach& his pops JohanAwesome to see them both catching fish together & having a blast!
Definately something I wish I could do with my Pops at Zach's age.
ZackSeeing the video on Whatsapp of Zack fighting his fish while looking so comfortable and composed was incredible. For such a young man to be doing what he is doing on the water is top notch! Well done
Danelle VivierThe cowboy action if Dan losing both slenders. Looked like a western film.

Unlucky bru
Hans CombrinkTrue grit down to the final dayhttps://katonkelronkel.co.za/wp-content/uploads/fluentform/ff-b0762ddbe994bbfd0ba0d341472f5631-ff-hans.jpeg

For most Desperate Angler:

Name of Individual being NominatedDescription of NominationPicture of nomination
Desmond CaswellSo far spent the most hours on the water and always eager to help anyone who needs a paddle buddy!
Taariq LevackThe man has put in the time and KM's. Doesn't give up, even when the chips are down.
Darryn clauseAlways paddles no matter what the water conditions, begs and steals time from the wife. Sold his kayak not by choice but always makes a plan to go onto the water
ZackSkipping school to fish……..legend
ZachSkipping School to try get that Katonkel
DesmondAlways at the top of the launch site, out of site with a coffee in his hands, arrving between 4am and 5am, so desperate to catch the winning fish, but 007ish in his approach. The silent desperate angler with no less than an average of 8-10 hours away from home πŸ™‚ Well done Desmond for always being around and being a good mate at the slip and on the water, but I guess being nice is being desperate too πŸ™‚ ps: he is so stealth in his way we dont even have a photo of this desperate guy πŸ™‚
Desmond CaswellHe went every day that had fishable conditions and paddles +- 30 kilometers every outing , he has a serious fear of missing out and is very competitive in a fun way. He has caught nearly 30 fish in 24 days and is risking safety against strong winds and high tides to get that one big fish.
Oom Desmond
Desmond CaswellFished every possible fishing day
DesmondHe really put in the most time to get, hard work should pay
DesmondDesmond tried to fish every day he could and sometimes twice a day
Oom DesmondI doubt his feet were ever dry.

He paddled plenty & caught as much.

Cudos oom!!
Zach PotgieterBunked school to get on the score boardhttps://katonkelronkel.co.za/wp-content/uploads/fluentform/ff-cae7db652f6f348fd1f90d5f5cfc947a-ff-zach.png
