Hi , following in @matt85 Big Bore Addiction Group , with permission I have decided on starting a Fishing Addiction Group . Most of us hunting folk enjoy our fishing as well.

Please post fish that you have caught on either fly tackle or conventional tackle

I am an avid fisherman , fishing mostly deep sea for pelagic species , let me begin with this magnificent dog tooth tuna caught off the northern Mozambique coast line . More pic's to follow .

Mexico is on my list of fishing destinations.
If you decide to go to South Baja and fish the sea of cortez let me know, I can tell you a couple companies to STAY AWAY from, you will be wasting your time. You will catch lots of fish with them but none of the monsters. The rooster above was caught with a local that spoke no english out of Bahia de Los Suenos. The pics below are the average of what we caught with one of those companies a lot further north

@Pawprint Safaris Man Pieter those are some seriously nice bass. It's easy here in the US to not realize that not only have Largemouth (and I think smallmouth as well) been introduced to South Africa, but with a climate like that the largemouth in particular must really flourish. What is the main forage they eat in those ponds?

They mostly feed on Tilapia. Yes we have large and small mouth. The smalls being scarcer.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
