Hi All,

I'm new to the Forum. Live in Alberton and started bassing in September last year. Got off to a slow start but have managed to catch quite a few since then. At this time I am only bank fishing. Got my two kids into it as well and they are loving it.

At this time we are fishing mostly around Alberton and JHB south. Most of my fish have come out of Wemmer Pan.

Anyway, looking forward to shooting the breeze and learning all that I can.

Welcome Sean!

Here are a couple of pics of me and the kids with fish.

Welcome Sean. Those are some nice fish for only a few month fishing and from the side nog al. :blue-cool:
The more I learn about fishing the more I realise
how much more I have to learn about fishing.
Nice fish. Lovely hobby to share with the family!

As mentioned before, I got off to a slow start. Took me two months to catch my first bass. It was very frustrating and I was learning on my own and from Youtube clips. I was not sure what I was doing wrong or if it was just too early in the season (September-October)

However, once I caught the first one I at least had some feedback on what I was doing right and then it took off from there. The Pic of me with the fish above is probably my PB to date. That was in November last year and the first day that I took my kids out with their new rods I had got for them. My son also caught this nice fish on that day. Not bad for his first day out.

Since then I have caught about 30 bass at Wemmer Pan. Mostly between 1 and 2 kg's. It has been a lot of fun and me and the kids are totally hooked. I go about 4 or 5 times per week if the weather is decent.
