Hello people. New to the fishing thing - my son just wants to fish. Live in Kempton Park. Want some advise of where to go to fish for any fish - carp, bass - doesn't matter, and also some tackle shops. Some info would be appreciated. Thanks. Craig.
Welcome to the site NewFisher. You have come to the right place. Tons of information on here.
Regards Robert Jacobs
Forget carp. Waste of time.
Have fun with the site

Hi love_bassing

Thanks for the list of dams, where is the Malherbe dam? I know where the other dams are.

Do you know if there are any bass in the dam on the left going down Rondebult from Sunward Park from N17 side. I see they breaking the ground away - now you can see dam from road.

Newfisher - Welcome to the site, man there is a wealth of info in the forums!!

I wanna go fish that dam so badly next to the hihghway, malherbe dam is just off atlas in impala park. Its by the pinkster church on malbore road in Impala park. I don't know anything about the dam in sunward park ill go tjek it out sometime. I think I've heard someg about it,ill find out and let u know,I think its called cinderella dam and if it is there is bass there.

Most of the dams in the benoni area has bass,especially the small ones in impala park.

In the new year I also want to go but don't like going alone, maybe we should team up going to these dams.
The invite (team up ) is to anyone wanting to not go alone. It getting dangerous to take a chance going alone.

That could work perfectly, its just more fun in a group aswell. No fun fishing alone.

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome, can't wait to get into this thing. Yes, there is alot of advise here, will help me alot - thanks. Going for a drive tomorrow - going to look at some camp sites around the vaal to go to some time.
I went to have a look at Malherbe dam this morning. Seems quite nice place. L-B have you caught anything there? Please let me know when you will be going there again.
I have caught there,don't go there often,we could maybe do sunday?
peace,love and bassing.
sounds good let me know
Howdy guys are there definitely bass in all those lil impala park dams I went past one evening and only caught barbel,has any one fished that malherbe dam next to the church?
Malherbe has bass, just very tough fishing, I fish there often myself.
Homestead, Blaauwpan, Middeldam and basically al the dams in Boksburg have bass in them. I have heard of 4kg fish coming out of some of those dams.

Malherbe has some fishing pressure from bank anglers,but have seen guys on pontoons pulling lots of fish from there. Personally I won't go on the water with my pontoon, the water is in a bit of a mess.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions about the dams in that area, even keen to meet for a session. Just in the Freestate now till Monday fishing some private farm dams.
peace,love and bassing.
