The last time I went bass fishing was 20 years ago. About a week ago I walked past Somerset Sport and on the inkling went in and bought a bass spinning reel, rod, monofilament and some top water lures, spinner bait, sales person suggested some plastics ( worms different colours) and some poppers went home loaded the reel and drove to a dam on the Bottelary Rd . This was at around 2H30 when I arrived, sat for about an hour just looking at the dam, thinking how to approach this then I saw movement at the edge of some reeds.
Decided to just do some practise casts. It was like riding a bike everything just popped back into memory started doing a 180 degree search cast around the area I saw the movement and by my six or seventh cast I had the first hit and the adrenaline started- lost the first at the bank then after about two and a half-hours I landed three bass . Did not have a scale but recon they weight between 850g and 1.3 kg (biggest one of the lot)
I have now been hooked again – now looking for a club that I could join that allow bank fishing and float tubes.
