Hey all,

Just a quick introduction from my side.

I'm an avid bass angler but mostly unsuccessful than successful, hence the username :cool: Most of my fishing is during spring and summer season as I don't know where to get these guys duti g the colder seasons, you guys dare not laugh at me ;) We all need to learn and hopefully some of the real masters on this forum can give me some tips.

Apart from bass fishing I'm also into aquariums that I spend most of my time on when I can't get the lines wet for some bass in the area.

Thanks for a great forum and I'm sure I'll get tons of advise from here.

Thanks you, we can only learn if we ask questions so I'll get my things ready and start a thread soon. For now I will look around on the forum and see what can help.


A bunch of smallies are ok to keep the lines tight but sometimes we just want that one monster.

About 18 months ago, one of my managers decided to try his hand at bass... I gave him a rod and reel with braid and some terminal tackle and a packet of zoom baits. He went to a few dams around us and had no luck. Then one Saturday afternoon he hooked and landed a 3.4kg bass. His first fish!!! He carried on fishing for a few months, caught lots of smallies and has now given up. So, moral of the story... Work your way up, not down ;)

Strange how this happens, we tend to give up when the going gets tough. Congrats on him catching that size for his first fish.

My first was a 2.5kg on a private dam owned by ZZ2 tomatoes in Moketsi when I was about 13 years old. Strange thing is it was that fish that got me hooked to bass fishing after. Untill today I'm still searching for another one that size and its my main reason for not giving up on it.

Over the past few years I have built up by tackle collection and learned a lot about all the different methods ect. for getting these guys.

Yeah... I keep going because every fish is rewarding, regardless. And the more I practice, the luckier I get.
