Bass Fishing Locations in Kwazulu Natal
The province of Kwazulu Natal (KZN) offers some of the best largemouth bass fishing in South Africa. Most of the province is low lying, with a fairly hot climate providing a long growing period for bass, the resident Florida strain and Northern strain hybrids can grow very large as a result. The current South African largemouth record weighing in at 6.29 kg (just under 14 lbs) was caught by Julian Van Zuydam at Midmar Dam in 2004. The region has numerous, excellent bass fisheries, such as Albert Falls, Inanda, Midmar and Goedertrouw (now renamed Phobane), the later being a serious candidate to produce the next SA record.
