Hi ,

Planning a trip Chelmsford dam at the end of February , any advise on this dam .

It will be my first trip there .. so not sure if it’s a specimen dam or just a pap gooi dam.

If only papgooi , what concentrates and baits should I focus on .

Says there bass in the dam , cannot find any pics of bass caught on the internet at this dam .

Any advise and tips will be highly welcome .

I grew up in Newcastle and fished it a lot as laaitie back in the 80sUsed to catch carp, barbel and scalies (Natal Yellowfish).
We used simple methods like brown bread and mealie pips.

I have seen some recent photos of bass but the dam is not very well known for bass. Mostly around the spawn time I believe.
