Diamond Back Skate

These Diamond Back Skate are members of the Ray family, a close relation to Sharks. Because they are not sought after as a human food source, they are not an endangered species and can be found in large numbers along most of the South African coast. In this episode Wesley Peens is up at day break and heads down to his local beach hoping to catch a few of these amazing creatures. The large wings, that create their diamond shape, can generate a huge amount of power in the water, so once hooked they are liable to put up a tough fight and any sudden change of direction can cause the rod to react violently. But once on the beach it would be easy to miss them, as they are camouflaged so well.
