    Thought I'd start a thread for catches around this area as the hobby is growing here as well. First catch of the season so far that I know of today at Herolds Bay.

    Cheatodon Blackburnii about 2 cm max size.

    Huh? What's a "yellowfin" - a type of carp? And what fusiliers? All 11 SA species are rarely found south of Durban.

    What is a "flare fin blenny"?
