    I just got back from kosi bay and what an honour to stay at TEBA cottage for a week and that over spring tide.
    Well we did not manage to land one of the big king fish but we had some fun with black tips sharks.

    That is a blennie, Ben. Looks like a sailfin blennie - but - to make a 100% ID we would need a full body pic of the blennie...
