Two Oceans Marlin Tournament 2019 Day 2 to Day 6

On Tuesday and Wednesday one or two marlin were sighted but none landed.  However, the weather was good and the anglers had fun trying for other species to enter into the Culcutta.     On Thursday and Friday weather prevented them from going to sea but they were out there again on the last day, Saturday.   No more Marlin were caught making Team Capetonian the winners!

Here are some of the results of the Culcutta and Lucky Draws

I am making the most of the South African Lifestyle and hope with my blog to share some of the adventures my husband and I are having in our retirement. We live at the Southern Tip of Africa in the small coastal town of Struisbaai. Earl and I have a Gecko off-road caravan and we travel around South Africa frequently. We are bird and wild life enthusiasts so are often in game reserves.
