Steak Night
Cape Boat and Ski Boat Club held its annual October Comp last week. It was a great success. Friday and Saturday were fished with a lot of big tuna caught. First prize was won by Sam Brown with a 107 kg yellowfin. Over 200 tuna were caught by 30 odd boats and 120 anglers with fish weighed from small longfin of 10 kg to that whopper winning fish. Sam walked away with R60 000 cash prize and lots of new toys from sponsors.
