Day 6 July 14, well the weather cooperated today and we had a great morning aboard the “Blackfish “ a very large twin outboard sea cat type hulled boat. Leaving through the Port Alfred jetty’s is nothing short of a bitch! The slot is very narrow and the rollers are huge! We made it through safely and head to our first drop point. We’re bottom fishing today and the hardhead catfish are eating us alive at the first spot so off to the next reef we go. The fishing quality seems to get better at each spot. Sorry to say I was so concentrated on fishing that I forgot to take any pics. Hopefully @Dudders or Luis snapped some and will attach later. Species landed were cape salmon, kob, wagon wheels, soldiers, french lady, Roman, pajama shark, mussel crackers and a bunch more I can’t remember. We even had humpback whales close enough to see and here at one of our stops as well. This is a great trip, if you hunt with @KMG Hunting Safaris don’t miss out. Just let Marius know to book a trip and he’ll work with the captain to schedule the calmest day possible. Once we returned back to port Martin, Marius his wife Kim and my wife were waiting and we all enjoyed a nice lunch overlooking the waterfront. After lunch Martin informed me if we wanted to try for bushbuck that evening we better hit the road. We pulled into a new property a couple hours before dark that was new to me and immediately started spotting bushbuck ewes. After parking the truck we unload and grab the 243 and the spotting scope. We maneuver through the brush and reach a good vantage point where a large hillside is visible with spotted brush. After a quick scan we see exactly what we’ve been searching for all week a good mature bushbuck ram and ewe. The only problem is there is a Kudu cow close by in the wide open that we’ll have to careful of. At this point we’re over 500 yards out and don’t have a lot of cover to work with. After a careful stalk that includes a lot of crawling we close the distance to 240 yards and set up the short sticks. Tandy gives me a rest for my elbow to steady the shot and at the shot he lurches forward for a few yards and is down. The bushbuck curse is over and I can relax. We set up for for pics and head to the skinning shed at dark. It’s been a long fun day.
