In Kob in the Surf, Wesley Peens heads over to Port Elizabeth, where he joins up with local guru Francois "Franna" Van Zyl and his buddy Darren Goosen for a few days fishing for Kob. The conditions make it tricky with an onshore wind blowing just a bit too hard. They try an assortment of baits, Chokka, which is a large piece of squid cut and tied to look like a small squid, as well as live baits. But the Kob are a crafty fish and very particular in where in the surf they will lurk. So success comes with being able to read the contours of the sand and look for the right colouration in the water. Get it right and the reward can be a 30lb bar of silver.
