Fish Hoek looks like it is less than 20 km West of Seal Island, which I believe puts it right next to the "Ring of Death," that place where the Discovery channel filmed the footage for Air Jaws. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but it seems to me that a place called the "Ring of Death" might not be the best place to work on the old breast stroke.

Woah, that's a funky lookin catfish.... though i am disappointed they didnt mention the giant arapaima... that one gets about the same size (though i've heard it used to grow in excess of 20 feet before being overfished)
