lunkers from the bank Posted by: earlyworm - 01-25-2018, 03:29 PM - Forum: Eastern Cape - Replies (6)

Howsit guys...hope everyone keeping well..
My question today is how to catch those big boys or girls from the bank..I don't have a boat although I would love to own one...if i did id be fishing every comp and event I could get my hands on...but alas that is not the case hahaha. ..

Ok so I've been at it all seasons all times of day with all types of lures but I can't seem to snag myself a decent monster to call my new PB ...

There are 2 dams and 1 pond like river that I usually go fish but in the past 2 years the best I've got was 650g on a plastic frog last Jan off a deep rise ridge into shallow water

Now I know all the spots to look and what to look for..I'm aware of structure layouts and depths but geeez statistically by now I should have caught something bigger haha..

I check the ous on the site posting their lekker big catches and I'm like what am I doing wrong or not doing at all...

There areas I fish have dropped in water levels drastically and one would think the bass would be all closer together haha...

I must admit I don't often use crank baits and deep diving lures so could this possibly be why I'm not striking the big guys..I know they lazy but how more slower or faster must I reel in...

Anyways all the watering holes I fish have the same kind of structure layouts..e.g. dead trees,lillies,deep water,shallow water,rocky bottoms,Sandy bottoms you get the picture..

My question to the expierenced big catchers is which is the best lure and best place along with best time and weather conditions...

Or is it all just part knowledge part lady luck?

Awesome chaps ..thanks as always..look forward to some advice..only way to learn..

Hey guys. .
Been finally getting some bass action again amongst my local fishing holes ..
Nice top water takes on frogs n lizards along the top of the lilly banks. ..been awhile since the fish have woken up down the eastern cape side for myself so very happy to be back on!

Hope everyone manages to do the same where ever you are and remember why we love bass fishing so much..bass don't bite on politics...haha 

Tight lines ous     

A little activity? Posted by: Jim_From_Zim - 01-16-2018, 12:36 PM - Forum: Bass Fishing In General - Replies (32)

Seem as though there's hardly any activity on this site lately, why dont we kick it off with something different? 

Myself and a friend of mine catching some fish recently. 

A ned rig did the work for me and a 10ft crank for him. All 3 were on first casts on different spots

Beginner at bass fishing from a boat Posted by: BassRoux - 01-07-2018, 04:20 PM - Forum: Bass Fishing In General - Replies (20)

Hi guys so I have recently modified our bowrider boat to be more bass friendly with a deck upfront and a foot controlled trolling motor, yesterday was my first time on the water fishing for bass from a boat. Fishing from boat compared to the bank feels like worlds apart. My question is at what depts do you fish and what stucture do you fish relative to conditions? I managed a few fish but feel “unproductive” Just a few pointers in the right direction would help. Smile

Good day everyone 

I'm new to the Bass Fishing site. I live in the Johannesburg area and love fishing in general. I favor the artificial lure part of fishing more than the bait part. 

I hope I will be able to pick up some tips on here from some of you guys, and hopefully be able to share some as well.

where all the good bass fisherman go Posted by: earlyworm - 12-21-2017, 06:58 AM - Forum: Eastern Cape - Replies (2)

Hi guys..first post on the new site. ..
Super excited to be back online...New site is a lil challenging to navigate and find your way around but it's all good..just my 5c opinion so dont take it to heart anyone please Smile 

Right so the fishing has been quite slow with the weather been the main factor and the water temps still cold..needless to say I finally stop my blanking streak and had a smasher 5 fish haul in just 1 hour last week..

Nothing major to write home about but enough to replenish my stoke levels and share my news with like minded individuals. ..

Keep casting and keep posting..
Long live bass fishing

Hey all, 

Was pretty involved in bass fishing in high school (Classics, Nationals, all that) but fell out of it when I moved to Cape Town. 

Looking to get back into the sport so the rods are coming out the garage this weekend and getting prepped for the holidays Smile
