Good afternoon all, I'm one of the newbies and just recently bought my first rod. Reel and line is still on the shopping list.

I primarily reside in Kyalami, so will be catching Lanseria, Magalies and Vaal on a more regular basis, with Dulstroom probably once every 2 months.

If you are in the area, or have some advice for a newby, please pop me some info! 

Kind regards

Hi forum. 

My first fishing experiences were far north Largemouth Bass, and I haven't done it for YEARS!
 I mean I left SA in 1987, and have never been back.

What is the bass fishing scene like? 

Planning a visit!  :-0

I just joined, moved from the NW to Pringle Bay about 4 years ago, looking for some bass fishing near me in the Overberg region. Can someone please give me some more information about Debos Dam, do you need permission to fish there and maybe some other spots.

My son (16) is suffering from withdrawal symptoms for not having places to fish

Crackleback 500 engine size Posted by: Expidite - 04-25-2021, 01:14 PM - Forum: Bass Boats - Replies (8)

Good day everyone.
I am new on here, and would like some opinions from CB 500 owners or copilots that have been on these boats.

I am in the market for a new or good secondhand one and would like to find out regarding engine size? Does the boat perform adequately with a 115 merc 4 stroke or is a 150 needed? I am not looking for ultimate speed. Just good allround performance. The plan is to buy right the first time and not need to upgrade soon.

The options at the moment is second hand:
Merc 150 optimax
Merc 150 EFI
Yamaha 150 2 stroke
Merc 200 EFI

And then new:
Merc 115 4 stroke
Suzuki DF 140 A 4 stroke ( reports say engine is a bit pap)
Merc 150 4 stroke 
Suzuki DF 200 A 4 stroke ( cheaper than merc 150 ) 

The CB500 boat is 5 m / 16 ft and rated from 90 to 200 hp.
Any input will be appreciated

PS , I am not a new boat owner, just never a bass boat.

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?
