Hi everyone, I love fishing and have been sea fishing all over south africa. I also have a dam with 5 bass in it and have been bass fishing around the cape.

One of my bass.

Setting up a healthy dam ecosystem Posted by: RJ12345 - 09-27-2020, 03:03 PM - Forum: Bass Biology - Replies (1)

I have an existing dam with a few bass but due to the drought here in the western cape, only 4 survived. So I am wondering how to set up a healthy ecosystem for my dam and where I can pickup some new fish.

Hello Ladies and Gents,

I'm Mogs, Its great to virtually meet you and totally new to bass fishing. I have been rock and surf fishing for all my life however, I have been living in Gauteng Centurion area for around 13years now. I don't get much time to travel to the coast to fish so I decided to take up bass fishing. I have tried Carp fishing but its not something I'm totally passionate about. Bass fishing I feel is as closest to sea fishing I can get. As I am new I would love it any of you can give me any advice or tips. 

I currently have the below setups:

Rod - Sensation Tournament Weapon Pro 
Reel - Abu Garcia Blue Max 
Line - Berkley Vanish 12LB Clear 

Rod - Shimano Alivio DX Spinning Med/Heavy 
Reel - Daiwa Laguna Spinning 3000
Line - Boss Braid 20LB 

Thats all i have so far, please can you guys advise me what else as beginner i should get. 
my intention is to fish as much as i can in the Centurion and Pretoria area and later as i get more experience i will try other spots around Gauteng. 

Any and all advice will be really appreciated, thank you in advance. 

Best regards 
Mogs  Smile

Which electric trolling motor ?? Posted by: ShelB - 08-13-2020, 03:16 PM - Forum: Bass Boat Equipment - Replies (4)

Hi Guys, new to the forum so hello. I am looking to purchase a trolling motor. Its for my 4.2m quintrex boat that i use in salt water estuaries. I have looked at the 64lb WATERSNAKE GPS ELECTRIC MOTOR GEO SPOT BOW MOUNT as i want a trolling motor with GPS , anchor mode , remote control etc. I will be spinning and flyfishing of my boat so the trolling motor needs to be SALT water ready have GPS, anchor mode, remote control etc so the Geo spot sounds like a great option?

I contacted however they only expect stock of the GEO units end Sept?

My questions are :
1. Are watersnake motors any good or should i rather look at another manufactorer such as Motorguide etc? If so why?
2. Where is the best place to get pricing on trolling motors in SA?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Handle Knob Replacement Posted by: Navrik - 08-03-2020, 07:38 AM - Forum: Reels - Replies (1)

Greetings guys.

In need some assistance. I managed to break off one of the handle knobs on a Quantum PT Tour bait caster reel. The handle knobs are exactly the same as the Quantum PT Tour KVD.

I managed to get 2 spare knobs but now need the shaft for a Quantum carbon handle. It has a small Torx (6 point star) screw on the carbon handle side and a combination Philips-flat screw on the other side holding knob onto the shaft.

I presume there are 2 bearings on ether side of the handle knobs as well. Any idea where I can find a replacement shaft and bearings?

I still have the Torx screw.

Once we're allowed to float our boats again I think the first weekend is going to look like a regatta on every piece of water. Let's hope it's soon...
