Mekaeel - where-ever you plan to fish, please just be very careful of the hippo's. You might end up 6-feet under if you don't watch out. There have been a LOT of reports in the last few years of hippo's attacking people who were fishing at the estuarine.

BUT - other than that - I can just say: "I WISH WAS WAS YOU" ;-)

when we were there the guys were standing so far away from the water, couldnt understand why, then we got told not to go close because of the crocs.

Speaking about crocs. The last time i went there, it was at night, and another fisherman hooked a skate and as he brought it towards the shallow waters, we could see a croc chasing it.As he landed the skate the croc grabbed it. Was rather cool to watch though.
lol sounds like an "armourr plated tax man!" i hate looseing fish to sharks or things! Landed half a Giant travelly cause a shark took it when i had the leader into the rod already and I was standing in the water.....ie it was closer that 9 foot from me.....i backed off!
