Port Elizabeth sits on South Africa's east coast and its estuary and surrounding shoreline offer incredible saltwater fishing for a variety of species. Wesley Peens is joined by a group of anglers from Pure Fishing as they embark upon a rock and surf fishing trip hopeful of success despite fairly rough conditions. After using a cast net to catch some live bait in the surf, Wesley puts a line out beyond the breakers. But its Francois who is first into a fish as something pretty sizable picks up his live mullet and a strong, back breaking fight ensues. After bringing the fish into the shallows, the formidable sight of a rare Sandbar Shark appears and Francois is delighted with his catch. It isn't long before Wesley gets on the scoreboard either as he locks horns with a trophy sized 12kg Kob. Francois then tries out a rocky outcrop stepping up his tackle to target the Black Musselcrackers that will certainly reside there. These powerful fish can reach weights of 35Kg so strong gear is needed to get them out of the rocks quickly. This isn't fishing for the faint hearted as nerves of steel are required to horse these fish in whilst manouevering position on the rocks as the waves crash in. Another stunning episode from the Reel Africa team which shows off the incredible shore fishing to be found on the Port Elizabeth coastline.
