    Hi all,

    Here's a recent pic of the newly scoured out Umthatha river mouth - my favorite TKEI dive site for Zambies, GW's and brindle bass over 6tf long... I WILL dive here a lot next season...

    Whoa, the best i have ever done is 46kg's! Well done!
    (at the price of lead nowadays, any diving conditions could be worth it, lol)

    Lol, yeah, it helps if you know where to dive as well! (& if someone else didnt take the dive ahead of you)

    In which area of the coast did you dive these out if I might ask?
