Youngsters proudly reel in the big ones
LOCAL youngsters Gerhard Oosthuizen and Elaine Bender had a memorable deep sea angling trip with their fathers Andries Oosthuizen and Deon Bender (skipper) on Sunday at Cape Vidal, respectively landing a 16kg bull dorado and 30kg sailfish.
Gerhard, who is only eight years old, landed the dorado after an eight-minute battle off the boat Rodbender.
Fourteen-year-old Elaine was over the moon after landing her first sailfish with a live mackerel, which took 30 minutes to land.
The sailfish was successfully released to fight another day.
