Walking the dog at Homestead in the evenings, I noticed lots of anglers. Does anyone of u guys have any experience of bass fishing there?

I life very close to the dam as well I think you would do better with a float tube or small boat I used to fish the reeds and weat at the sail boat club and the bay where the scouts are .

I've caught some good fish there from the dam wall side close to a large concrete block in the water. But it can be difficult sometimes and other times theres plenty small fish around. Worth a bash when its quiet.

bi used to fish there now and then when i lived in jhb, best was of a tube, spinnerbait worked well for me also found fish along the wall and on thebank by the scout hall, remember there being a good set off reeds that dropedoff to a bit deeper water that worked well, give it a bash!! also remeber the water being quiet clean and using natural colours! tight lines
Here fishy, fishy, fishy here fishy.

i live a few blocks from this dam and it is a hard dam to catch.
i have caught more off the side than on my rubber duck and my biggest was a 1.2kg and lots of 600g to 800g.
but some guys i know have pulled out some big bass there of up to 4kg..

Aren't you worried about the sewerage flowing through the dam at the moment?
Nice PB !!
If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend it's whole life believing its stupid!

I went past homestead last night from arround 5ish and almost got blown away with the 30min storm.
so i sat in the car while it blew over. then went to try a creature bait near lillies and managed a 900g fish.
Then went a bit on near the other side of the lillies and started throwing buzz bait as the sun was dropping behind the houses on the other side of the dam and and landed my biggest on buzz bait of 1.6kg.
I was chatting to a guy while reeling in and booom baby, she hooked her self on to the trailer hook.. i have no photo of her cause the guy i met there said he took 3 photos with my phone :eusa_naughty: but when i got home i was sad to see there was nothing :eusa_snooty:
