What went down on the weekend.

Gee this weekend we had some epic diving conditions, Saturday was one of those days when it is good to be alive. We dive north Tinley and the vis was well over 20m, the game fish were quiet but the fish life was out of this world.

One of the pinnacles had slinger, bronze bream, soldiers and others feeding right up to the surface. We dived alot of reef around the 20-26m mark and most the time you could make out the reef from the surface.

The guys who dived the Natal trails were not so lucky with a merky 3m vis on the Bluff. The guys who went to Sordies and Vidal had it good tho, with Wahoo and cuta coming out. Even a Iggie over 20kg saw shot ....

The freaky thing was that there were reports of the fishing skies getting cuta all along the north coast .... apparently even a Wahoo came out off Umhloti?

Any Way it was good to have a weekend when the wind did not pump all week end. .. lets hope we are this luck next weekend!

Other news is that the PMB guys are getting together:

Hi All,
Well it's getting to that time of the month for our monthly get together which will be held on the 30 October at the Pietermaritzburg Underwater Club from 6:30pm.
We will be screening the latest Freedivers DVD which has not been officially released yet but Shane has been kind enough to let us have a sneak preview. It features Ryan Burmester & Len De Beer diving off the Natal coastline spearing some awesome fish. Not to be missed!
There will be the usual cash bar and once again 1000 Hills Chef School is going to be preparing a delicious chicken curry at R20 a plate.
For catering purposes please RSVP if you would like to join us for supper.
Once again please forward this to anyone you think would be interested.
Hope to see you all there.
Andrew Henwood

Thats all for now,
