Bass fishing in CPT Posted by: ARK - 02-20-2021, 10:16 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (2)

Hi guys, I'm new here and took my son fishing for the first time, although we caught nothing using an antique wooden rod and a kiddies rod reel, we had fun learning how to reel and caste. Might I say it's both of our first time. Where in Cape Town is a good spot to actually catch bass in the nothern suburbs?

Hey guys, 

Ive heard shimano has a new agent in SA, does anyone know if there is any truth to this?

If so who is the new agent. 

I'm trying to find out what the new rods that are coming in will be. Zodias? intenza? exprite? I have curados but have seen that they are being discontinued in the states. 


Bass Boat Wanted Posted by: MickeyM - 10-20-2020, 08:03 PM - Forum: Bass Boats - Replies (7)

Hi all,
Looking to upgrade from my splash bass to something a bit bigger.  

17 ft hull with 115-150hp.  Would consider a 16ft with a wide beam.  

My budget is around R100k.

From what I can see, there is very little available on the internet right now. I have registered as a potential buyer on bass

If anyone is looking to sell or has any kind of advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

Bass Fishing in my dam Posted by: Stelliesfishing - 10-18-2020, 05:33 PM - Forum: Report Backs - Replies (3)

Wow after 2 years of trying to stock my one dam with bass it paid of. Today I went fishing in my one dam and almost caught 20 bass in an 2 hour session.
The bass range from 300g to about 1.8kg. Its truelly amazing how wild these bass are, the one even went for just a hook.?

I am struggling to add images the photos are to big?

Setting up a healthy dam ecosystem Posted by: RJ12345 - 09-27-2020, 03:03 PM - Forum: Bass Biology - Replies (1)

I have an existing dam with a few bass but due to the drought here in the western cape, only 4 survived. So I am wondering how to set up a healthy ecosystem for my dam and where I can pickup some new fish.

Hello Ladies and Gents,

I'm Mogs, Its great to virtually meet you and totally new to bass fishing. I have been rock and surf fishing for all my life however, I have been living in Gauteng Centurion area for around 13years now. I don't get much time to travel to the coast to fish so I decided to take up bass fishing. I have tried Carp fishing but its not something I'm totally passionate about. Bass fishing I feel is as closest to sea fishing I can get. As I am new I would love it any of you can give me any advice or tips. 

I currently have the below setups:

Rod - Sensation Tournament Weapon Pro 
Reel - Abu Garcia Blue Max 
Line - Berkley Vanish 12LB Clear 

Rod - Shimano Alivio DX Spinning Med/Heavy 
Reel - Daiwa Laguna Spinning 3000
Line - Boss Braid 20LB 

Thats all i have so far, please can you guys advise me what else as beginner i should get. 
my intention is to fish as much as i can in the Centurion and Pretoria area and later as i get more experience i will try other spots around Gauteng. 

Any and all advice will be really appreciated, thank you in advance. 

Best regards 
Mogs  Smile
