Hi Everyone

It is with great sadness that I am making this post. I have decided after many years of owning BFSA I have had my time... It has grown in leaps and bounds over the years and I am very glad it has. However I can not do it justice any more as I have come to an end of my run.

BFSA has huge potential and If I have the time and effort I could probably make it something even better. But unfortunately that is not going to happen from my side. I would like to step down and hand over all aspects of BFSA to whom ever is interested in purchasing it.

If you are interested and would like to make me an offer (be realistic please, R5k or R10k is not going to be anywhere close) The potential of the website is huge and you could easily get your investment back within 1 year if not sooner if the correct business plan was implemented. I will also include the domain name <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.basstackle.co.za" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.basstackle.co.za</a><!-- m -->

The best offer will be considered, but may not be accepted if I feel it is not a substantial enough offer. I will be accepting offers until the 30th June 2015.

So there you have it. Send me a mail at bassmaster@.....


Below are the stats for the site just for the month of May

Hi BM.

I know this post must have come with a huge lump in your throat and I think I speak for everyone when we thank your for this awesome platform you and your behind the scenes partners have provided over the last few years as welll as the Money Trails and Kick Boat Trails that have flowed out of this association.

All the best with the sale!

It is a mix of a custom content management system and phpbb forum.

I've been part of this magic site for nearly 10 years and it is with sadness to read this post.

Shane you have been inspirational to all of us, well most of us :blue-biggrin: You have done a great job with this site and bass fishing as a whole, well done!

Good luck with the sale of the site, I sincerely hope that someone with the same passion and dedication takes it over from you.

Long live BFSA!

Howzit Shane,

Could you give us an idea as to a starting bid ? I'm sure there are quite a few okes interested , myself included , but I just need to know whether it's even worth me going to the bank manager , or if it might be better getting some kind of partnership together , or to persuade a company to get involved ?

There are a number of website valuation sites. Bassfishing.co.za is not going to go all that cheaply. Nice to see and not that surprising!
Occasionally I use words I don't fully understand to make myself sound more photosynthesis.

Yip it has been a long an good road! But understand it's time... but we are all sad.

If I can give some advice to anyone considering taking over... please have a look at the platform Xenforo to launch an improved bassfishing.co.za

Xenforo is a new generation forum platform and way ahead of other platforms!

Hi Guys

Thank you again for the kind words. I gave this site everything and now I am going to sit back and chill. It has been an amazing 12 years or so and I would not have changed it for the world.

However I am now going to be part of the crowd and let someone else take the lead.

On that note I am finalising the deal at the moment. The website has been sold and as soon as it is finalised I will let everyone know who the new owner is. A few of you do know him quite well I think. From the bit I have spoken to him he is just as passionate about the sport and the site as I have been so it is going to be in good hands.

Anyway, thank you once again to all the members who have made this journey for me a pleasant one, BFSA will always live in my heart. I will be around and I will see you guys on the water again soon.

BM Out.

Shot Bud for giving us BFSA if it was not for this site we would have never met and never become the best of mates. I have learnt so much because of BFSA and become a better angler I have made good friends and some not so good but that's life and that's fishing.

So many good things have spawned from BFSA the Money Trail the KBT and many other things it has become a part of many anglers lives and I hope it continues like this into the future!!

Anyway without getting all soppy and sh..t Braai? your place Saturday you buying lol!!!
