shees, take it like a man JM. nice one. say what you want about the laaitie, but thats some serious honesty shown. And keep in mind the value that he has added to this forum (great reportbacks). I can imagine myself doing something like this if I was about 10 years younger. Having something like this forum and a name and shame only adds to the punishment (which the people affected have dished out, and deemed it fit for the crime, presumably by saying that they are not going to take it further by pressing charges).

My advice to JM... move down to KZN one day, we have quite a few venues like applewaithe, from what I've gathered on the size fish there and type of coverTongue


I'm from the Freestate boy I tell you the farmer would be upset if you didn't pop in for a braai after.... :eusa_think:

Is he also going to be banned?

I agree Roy. I think JM has learnt a valuable Lesson here. When youre a Teenager you can get up to some funny stuff without realizing the consequences.

To nail him thru His Sponsorship, I think thats uncalled for.

For the Guys Dishing out all the abuse, I wonder what you guy's got up to at the same age and even when you were a bit older. :blue-badgrin:

I say give the youngster a break and be ruthless if you need to if he steps out of line again.

Just my opinion.

Ouch boet. I have to say you have fished several other places which was also off limits and then have done reports on them. I was wondering when something was going to go wrong. Some lessons are tougher than others. Being such a good fisherman puts a massive spotlight on yourself and your sponsors. If it was one level higher im sure your sponsorship would have been long gone. Better learning the lesson now than later. You are a good oke, Dont wreck yourself too much over it.... If things get heavy... go fishing! Well done on owning up.

I actually had to read this twice, dumbfounded :eusa_wall:

Well done to the land owners and organizers for 'saving the event.' Especially considering the sensitivity surrounding this piece of water.

No comment regarding the two fishermen

JM, well done for owning up like a man. It doesn't mean what you did is right.
If you go through life dealing with challenges the way you handled this, well you are on the right track my man.
I have done way worse in my life to catch a fish and believe me there are many members on this site that have fished way past the no go area at mofam.
The punishment has been dealt and accepted so to continue whipping the oke will serve no purpose and if there is anyone that can say he or she has never broken the rules then they can carry on by all means.
He went fishing for goodness sakes, not sold drugs to your kids.
Anyway JM what you did was wrong and you should take a valuable lesson from it. For those that witnessed this you too will take a lesson at the expense of another man. Now go to Mauritius grow ur hair, get a tan and get a scar from a marlin and no one will know you when you enter the gate. Hahaha just kidding

Apprently there has now been three instances of tubers on the Peninsula dam during the recent weeks, this being the third, without permission. Not sure whether it's the same fishermen, but warnings were apparently issued the first two times. I really hope it wasn't the same guys each time.

Doesn't matter. The case has now been dealt with. Lets leave it be. Alternatively we could ban them X3 and have their next 2 sponsorships revoked? Too many people comment on things that have nothing to do with them which is why everything always becomes an effing circus....Mike and Carl spoke. JM knows the deal. Finished.

Not to nitpick but Peninsula dam and the river section of Applethwaite are two totally different pieces of water.
Fishing dams on private eland has always been a issue, all these guys not just JM are very lucky to not have the cops called on them. Hopefully lessons have been learnt and anybody that was thinking of fishing any piece of private water uninvited has been put off entirely.

Knowing this being a sensitive situation and all, may I just mention that it was stated that there was 2 involved in the incident. JM openly confessed on the forum that he was involved and is now taking the full force of what he most probably had coming his way. I don't condone what was done, but well done JM for facing the consequences and accepting whatever happens next.

My question is this - Where is the other party involved of does he still have to grow a pair of balls to own up to what was done?

i envy jm for his fishing ability, story telling, young age and the amount of time he spends fishing. i truely think he had a bad day. everyone is entitled to have an off day (even if foul words were used). jm has come forward admitting guilt and has apologised, that alone shows good character and should be forgiven and not punished continuously. being banned is some serious sh!t enough.
i ask of you all, to try and help him to have this bad incident revised. we all have learnt from this and has reminded me to behave and respect others
