BASSCRAZY: @Bassanator, tight lines at Boskop!! The grass is a bit heavy for a bass boat, I think an inflatable would get into the hot spots. Even a float tube must be hard work!!!
Shamwari: Howzit all! Eish, I am sukkeling to get through my last day at work...I want to be fishing right now
The Bassanator: cool will check thanks
Jokerman: I got all my Lowrance aftermarket stuff through Steve of Bass world..........also look into getting yourself a Lowrance hard cover for your fishfinder. It protects it nicely when in storage about R320
Jokerman: Bassanator - Go look on Lowrence's local website......else speak to the guys at Bass World, they will get for you.

Adriaan: Hello !!!!! I looked out the window and there are still people moving about , its not the end of the world , so where is everybody ????
Adriaan: We started bassing during the past winter, and I have to agree , fishing was better back then, even just bank angling. Now we have boats and tubes and other toys and the fish are smaller and bloody scarce :(
Adriaan: I assumed the guys have all gone undercover before the weekends comp....too afraid that they might blurb out their tactics for the weekend :O Makes sitting at the office EXTRA boring , not having any new stuff to read on the forum
Osler: Friendly comp sounds good , just not now the bass are so dead there right now , this is like the worst season IV ever seen at homestead , winter was more productive

We held our monthly competition as usual Injaka Dam.

We got to the dam to slight rain and drizzle as appose to the blistering heat we normally encounter. We launched and within an hour we realized it was another day of quotes like `i don`t understand it, the weather is perfect for fishing today` or` i just don`t know where the bloody fish are`.

We fished for 3/4 of the competition throwing everything we had in the boat (sorry, didnt throw the anchor, but was tempted!) but had nothing but small shoals following the lure all of the way to the boat. The most followed seemed to be either the STORM swimmerbait rig or the mojo rigged grub in watermelon seed.

We inherited another fisherman on the boat as his lift had fallen through and he had hooked into two reasonable fish but lost both on the way to the boat before i finally hooked one. A small fish took the storm rig. i would estimate that the fish was maybe 300g. Thought that the day was a bit of a right off and so threw the fish back in instead of hi m going into the livewell.

About half an hour later i felt the grub shake and set the hook into what i originally thought was a stump. Then it started moving slowly around the brush. After a short fight my buddy Chris lipped a nice bass of over 2kg. We weighed it quickly on the scales on the boat and this one did make the livewell.

Nothing else until the end of the comp!!!

We got back to the launch thinking that a 2 kg fish would stand a chance for biggest fish as we normally have one or maybe two fish over 2kg in a comp here. We weighed in the one fish at 2.18kg (my personal best at Injaka) and i compiled the results. six fish over 2kg in this competition!!!!. The biggest for the day was 2.54kg! The best bag was 7.04kg followed by 5.4kg and then right down to 2.54kg. If we had of kept that one little fish we would have been third place! Bugger!.

Oh well lesson learnt!!!!

Strange day on the water but we somehow managed to salvage a 4th place with just the one fish. Hard day though!!!!!

Didnt even get a chance to take a picture as i had to compile the results of the competition and my phone camera died on me.

I will just have to catch a bigger one then!!!!
3kg fish, I am coming for you!!!!

That dam, eish .... that dam ...... it still has me STUMPED LOL!

So much timber, so little fish.
Ok let's revise that ...... So much timber, so little fish where I threw my lure ..

Nice going, I think those dams out there are some of the most difficult to fish, yikes ......

i was talking to texan and he told me of the versatility of the grub and i was going to stop fishing it but remembered the conversation.

So I think the credit goes to Tristan!!! Cheers Buddy, your words of wisdom were remembered!!!
