April 10th

We turned west at Clan William and headed towards the fishing town of Lamberts Bay

It’s Snoek season in Lamberts Bay. The Snoek is a large Ocean fish similar to a Barracuda. It has sizable sharp teeth. The saliva is an anticoagulant. If a fisherman is bit it is essential to stick the bleeding finger into the fish eye to stop the bleeding. The membrane of the eye has a coagulant which will stop the bleeding. The fishermen abide by tradition and catch the Snoek with hand lines instead of nets.
