Oracle,
He charges R45.00 for half day and R 90.00 for full day. It is very save and has nice braaiarea as well
Deadringer works well as well as spinnerbaits when the wind is blowing
Had good results on senco wacky rig as well

Hi Oracle,

I think vasfontein is a bit over fished, I went there 3 weeks ago on a Friday and manage to catch one bass for the whole day, there were about 10 other guys around also trying their luck but I think only 2 bass were caught for the entire day, now this is not a very big dam so 10 guys is quite a lot of people fishing the dam in one day, I have previously manage to catch a 1 kg kurper on an inline spinner that was gave me a good fight but for bass I have only managed 2 in three trip, but maybe I am doing something wrong.

I fished Varsfontein this morning ! I got there at about 7:30am only to find 5 others guys , got a 800g bass . I think these bass have seen every kind of Lure ever made , this venue looks like its very very over fished I can only imagine how busy this place must be on weekends !

:?
Rust De winter is a far better bet !

I used to fish Vasfontein a lot, but the bass have become educated and a lot died last year due to a problem with the water. 18 moths ago, 15 bass in an afternoon was normal.

They do not have gates that opens or closes, you can just drive in and start fishing, a guy with a book will come by later to ask for payment.

VASFONTEIN BASS ESTATE


1. Security
Security is okay, Main house only several meters away from two main dams, separate dam a little dodgy but still safe.

2. Ablution Facilities and their condition
Non-Existant and no going to the bush, see point no 1

3. Braai/Cooking Facilities
Built up braai/s at main dams

4. Day Venue only or Overnight Facilities
Only day visitors fishing from 06:00 to 18:00

5. Popularity
It isn't all that popular with people who knows it, as it got alot of fishing pressure at times, fishing sometimes very difficult

6. How busy it gets
It used to get exremely busy at times, but lately due to fishing being difficult its not that busy

7. Bank, Boat or both types of angling is possible
Bank angling only, too small for even a float-tube or kickboat.

8. How well you did
Normally land about one to three fish on a morning stretch weighing about 300g on average. Managed to land a 1,7 kg kurper before

9. Location (Province, Suburb, Nearest Town) (Map if possible)
It is located 20km's North of Pretoria

10. Directions

Take the N1 North towards Pietersburg past Pretoria. After passing the Petroport that's built over the Highway take the next off -ramp "Wallmansthal" off-ramp. Turn left on top and travel down this road till it ends in a T-junction with the Old Warmbaths Road. Turn Right and travel for about 1 to 1,5 km's and trun roght at the Soshanguve Road that goes over the Old Warmbaths Road. Travel down this road for about 800m's to 1km and you'll see a tar road making a T-junction with the road you are on. Slow down, go past this road and trun right about 50 to 80m's further.

11. Entrance and other fees

Entrance fees used to be R50-00 for the morining session and again R50-00 for the afternoon, however it seems that R50-00 is all you pay nowadays.

2. Ablution Facilities and their condition
Non-Existant and no going to the bush, see point no 1 - They do have ablution Facilities at the two main dams which is in very good condition and very clean. (the small builing to the left of the main house outside the yard)
