Thanks Navrik,

didnt see this post until your reply.

I think the Poortjies FLW will also have to change because as far as I know access to the dam will be no longer at the end of the year.

Thanks for the update. Andy will need to make the call but I guess it will be Kwaggas then.

With immediate effect

Cast-for-Cash Update
After the first event in its new format, we carefully reviewed certain trends among anglers and analyzed the results. Shockingly the so-called “Minnows” out-fished the “Lunkers”!
The intention of the Minnow league was to draw beginner anglers who will compete on their own level while the Lunker level was for the more experienced anglers to compete for better prizes.
We decided to do away with the Minnow and Lunker two leg systems and continue with the original Cast-for-Cash concept. From the next tournament all anglers will enter and compete on the same level and pay the same entry fee while all pre-registered teams will be able to draw their starting positions.

This will give all contestants a chance to win big prize money and most important, to fish the Costa FLW Series Championship in the USA.

Next event:
Gauteng; 28 January – Rust de Winter Dam
Mpumalanga; 28 January – De Hoop Dam
Kwa-Zulu Natal; 28 January – Inanda Dam
Southern Cape; 28 January – Buffelsjag Dam
Limpopo; 29 January – Albasini Dam

Cast-for-Cash: How it works
The SA BASS Cast-for-Cash bass tournaments are qualifying rounds to the FLW South Africa Championship to be held in July 2017.
Teams may enter at the venue and pay the entry fees during registration, or may pre-register. Each team consists of maximum two persons per boat and members have to nominate who the skipper, co-angler and reserve angler for the season will be. Each team is allowed to weigh five fish per day but because it is a catch-and-release event, teams are penalised for weighing any fish that cannot swim away from the way station. The top five heaviest bags for the day are declared winners at prize giving. Apart from the cash prizes contestants also have a chance to win various lucky draw prizes, but they have to be present at prize giving to receive the prize.

At the end of June 2017 the top 30% teams according each region’s end-of-season-points standings in Gauteng; Mpumalanga; Limpopo; KZN; Southern-and Western Cape will qualify to participate at the FLW South Africa Championship. (ALL participants fishing the FLW SA Championship have to be FLW members not later than 28 February 2017, membership is R800 per person per year and include).

At the FLW South African Championship teams will win cash and many lucky draw prizes plus; the top two positions (4 persons) win the following fantastic prize:

The skippers of the first and second place plus their co-anglers advance to the Costa FLW Series Championship in the USA in November 2017 with the following expenses paid: free entry, air tickets, bed & breakfast and vehicle hire. FLW USA will provide two boats (one for each skipper). The TOTAL PRIZE VALUE is an estimated R50,000 per angler; that is R200,000 for four anglers!
AND THERE IS MORE! One of the skippers from the international countries - that include South Africa, Mexico, South Korea, China and Canada will go through to the Forrest Wood Cup in 2018.

Cast-for-Cash Entry Fee:
Pay R700 per team per event, or pre-register upfront before 25 January 2017 and be allowed to draw your team’s starting position for the day.

The FLW Membership Fee is R800 per individual per year which includes membership benefits.

The tournament rules will be adjusted accordingly and be uploaded to the website.

Organisers will also be issued with newly updated pay-out sheets.

Ok, I need my hand held here.

There was a post earlier in the week that announced the cancellation of the Cape FLW season. This post disappeared for reasons that are unclear. Is the local tour still cancelled?
Occasionally I use words I don't fully understand to make myself sound more photosynthesis.

Toadee, all that nonsense was about a rumour doing the rounds that SABAA members may not compete in the FLW and which was all removed as it was not factual.

If i may be my normal self and put my foot in it again...

Why change the format rules after the first event has taken place? Should this not be done before the season starts?

I think its a bit of an insult actually. Makes me think that the organisers just want to make extra money by forcing the social guys to pay the same as the serious guys.

Who cares if the 'minow' group beat the 'lunker' group in bag weight. Makes no sense to now charge the same because of one ass whipping.

And yes, i dont subscribe to this series

Howzit Jim from Zim.

This was updated on FB. As far as I understand from my conversation with Hannes. The Minnows was created for the new comers to the sport so they could could also have a chance at the FLW series. Apparently top anglers entered this league so they decided to stop it.

Its now R700 per cast for cash. The guys that are not very serious don't have to compete in all cast for cash comps. Its entirely up to the team or angler. Obviously the more you fish the better your chances are to qualify for the main event in July.

Hope this helps.
