Dear Elize and Johan
Many thanks for some fantastic days with you. We all 4 really enjoyed being with you and your great hospitality. It was so fun to be at sea. We will think about it with joy for many years. It's great experiences you have given us, thank you very much. We hope to come back one day.
Best regards

Weereens baie dankie vir die wonderlike prys wat julle vir Hannes gegee het, die verblyf was fantasties en die visvang uit ‘n ander wereld.
Baie liefde
We were awarded a number of prizes last year for our two Marlin and our overall 5th position in the Billfish 15000. One of those was a 4 night stay for 16 people at SEEVARKIE Lodge with Johan and Elize Smit. Staying at the coast myself, I rarely use these type prizes, but this year we decided to take a break and just have a nice weekend away with the our wives coming along as well.
I cannot show enough appreciation for how we were received at the Lodge. From the very first call to Elize she went out of her way to accommodate us. So far, that she even booked us over a long weekend. The facilities were great. Everything an angler could want. Ample boat parking, comfortable rooms, huge entertainment area with lots of wood and very importantly – ICE (for the cool drinks obviously).
Our prize included a one day charter and Johan took us out on Seevarkie. I was joined by my wife, Candice and a friend of ours Michelle Richards. Both of these ladies very avid and competent anglers, having obtained their natal colours for deep sea angling. What a great day it was. Johan is an absolute gentleman and clearly knows these waters well. We had a number of small tuna in no time but the biggest surprise was getting a Queenfish on one of the Sailfish baits. Experienced as he is, Johan turned back to the area and each of the girls landed a Queenfish of their own. Mine and Candy’s weighed in just under 8Kg and Michelle’s just under 11Kg. We believe that could have been a potential SA record for ladies – but only realised it after cutting up the fish (next time Michelle) Great smiles all round. We even got taken by a sailfish on the way back, but a “Groot ongeluk” saw the fish break the leader. Great fun none the less.
I have included a pic of our catch for the day.
A fantastic prize, fantastic lodge and even better hosts.
Thank you Seevarkies for a memorable weekend.
Johan Coetzer and all the friends from Warner beach.
