THE FURY FORD TOTI UKFC KAYAK FESTIVAL WRAP UP!

Over the first weekend of May the majority of KZN kayak anglers fished the Umgeni Kayak Fishing Club’s 2015 competition.

The boundaries were from Umhlanga in the south all the way up to Blythedale in the north.
Weather conditions were almost perfect with flat seas and very little wind but even so the fishing proved to be pretty difficult.

Almost predictably master kayak angler Markus Potgeiter took first place once again with a fantastic Couta of 20.4 kg caught on Saturday morning off of Blythedale. Markus also got a decent tuna setting the bar for the rest of us to aim for.
Well done Markus.

Bruce Brauteseth caught the second biggest couta of 16kg at Westbrook on Sunday.

Dylan Pfeil took second place by landing a lovely 16.5 kg Yellowfin tuna at around 9:30 am on Sunday morning off of Umhlanga.
Well fished Dylan. That smile said it all.

Chris Hill won the lucky draw prize of a brand new, new shape Stealth BFS kayak.

Unfortunately nobody managed to win the new Chevy bakkie by catching a Couta of over 30 kg.

The event was fantastically run and attended by over 80 kayak fishermen and is bound to grow and grow every year.

A big thank you goes to all the generous sponsors including Toti Fury Ford, Beach Bums, Stealth, Pinnacle Kayaks, The Kingfisher, Free Spool, Boss Paving, Ufudu Turtle Tours, Sodwana Bay Fishing Charters, Halco Lures and Go Fish Magazine.

Also a big thank you to Julian Dalton and all the UKFC committee members for all their effort in putting this brilliant event together.
