Hi guys, I went fishing at Tzaneen dam the weekend and we (myself,my girlfriend,my boet and friends)had a lot of fun.

We arrived early friday morning and set up camp. The weather wasn't to bad although a lot of rain were predicted. Our camp was situated on the river on the left of jetty 3.

At about lunch time we were done and had our lines in the water(somer from the bank). We hooked a couple around the 800g mark and felt very positive for the following day.

At 6:00 saturday morning we were up ready to go. It was overcast and I was gooiing topwater baits, right in front of our campsite. I picked up two nice fish about a kilo each on zara jnr. We were catching alot of fish in the region of 500g on white spinners and junebug super flukes.

We fished untill about 14:00 and called it.

The following morning same story but no fish to write home about.

Monday morning was highlighted with a beauty, 2.3kg(my new pb)on zarra spook jnr again off a rocky point and an hour later a 1.9kg(my girlfriends new pb)in the same area.

We left later that afternoon, very happy with the weekends fishing. My first time at Tzaneen dam and will definetly return. Big Grin

Nice Feedback Sunseeker, that is definitely a dam I want to try in the near future, my brother stays in Pietersburg (ok I will be political correct, Polokwane) which is about an hours drive from tzaneen so I think I must go visit him so that we can spend a day on the dam.

Thanks for the report. I fished that dam many years ago when it still had a population of tiger fish. What is the water level like, It used to get really low in 19footsak.
