River bassing Posted by: sharky - 01-31-2006, 03:20 PM - Forum: Bass Fishing In General - Replies (10)

Hi guys

The farm where I'll be staying this weekend's dam is almost non-existant due to the heat we've been experiencing. I'll be going to a river at Mount Ceder, which is close by. Apparently there is a huge number of bass that's impacting on the local fish species, so they'll be to happy if I can take one or two home!

Now the obvious questions are: Is the bass behaviour of river bass and dam bass the same (their usual hideouts around structure, etc)? What type of lures do I use? I assume lure choice depend on the depth of the river? Should I choose different tactics for slow moving and fast moving water?

Any advice will help!

Fish Attractants Posted by: Guest - 01-30-2006, 03:08 PM - Forum: Must Haves! - Replies (8)

I would be interested to hear if and what "mooties" are used by users. I use a chartreuse garlic "Spike It" to dip the tails on worms and Galic spray & cook for my skirt based lures.

Do they work? Do fish savour the flavour?

I would also like to know why Garlic is so popular, why not Strawberry.

Maps of Dams? Posted by: Guest - 01-24-2006, 04:07 PM - Forum: Bass Fishing Waters - Replies (59)

Where can I find topo maps of the major comp dams? Especially the less obvious ones like Misverstand dam in Western Cape. I heard there is a spot there that can seriously damage your gearbox.

Is it possible that we can start a section like this on the site? A short summary of accommodation at the various dams would also help.
