BASSCRAZY: Happy Birthday Tristan!!!! Have a good one, enjoy!!!
Texan: and maybe frida! :P
Texan: Thanks Guys! pity not on the water doing some frogging! will have to do it sat and sunday!
FRANKIE: Happy Happy Mr Texan and God Bless.
StephenK: Tristan, Happy birthday and God Bless. treat yourself with a ALX. take the day off, explore a new piece of water.
bassbug: happy birthday Texan, have a texantion day :D
Theo: Texan - Read your PM!
BASSCRAZY: Happy Birthday Bassanator!!!
bassbug: Happy birthday bassanator, you won't struggle blowing 31fires hehehe I did it some time ago with no problems
Theo: Happy Birthday Bassanator!!! 8) May you have a wonderful day and a prosperous year ahead :D
Theo: Cheerio boys! See you at Silwer strome tomorrow morning 8)
Theo: Thanks Basscrazy! 8)
bassbug: thanks BassCrazy, not useless but usefull :D
BASSCRAZY: Some useless info: Vaaldam 79% full, 0 gates open. Barrage level 7.46m (60mm down from last week), 2 gates open, water flow per gate, 25 cubic metres/ second.
BASSCRAZY: There is a hot spot for yellows just down river from the main dam wall, a place called Vishgat. I was last there 20 years ago, so I don't know if the farmer still allows fishing there. :S
BASSCRAZY: I don't think the rain will affect the flow down river, unless they open the Barrage gates. Last week the water was not even close to the top. The dam is also far from full, so all should be cool. (I am assuming you guys are fishing more towards Parys)
Texan: ya dont want to use my new rod as a pole vault over the rapids!
Theo: As long as we can still enter the river without getting washed away and the Yellows are on the feeding, I do not care what the waterflow is 8)
Texan: ja i know might take its time to get there!
Theo: :O That is just going to increase the Flow in the Vaal :S
Texan: Morning all! who orded the rain just before the weekend will be shot :)
Texan: ya then we will face NZ eish or Nemisis!!!!
Theo: At least the made it!!!! It only took them 23 years, but we have made it into the Knock out rounds :D :D :D
Texan: just dont choke on a cricket ball. only we can loose it from here.
Theo: Go Proteas!!!!!! 8)
jo_78: BASSCRAZY - THANKS x2!!

BASSCRAZY: Happy Birthday jo78 & moman!!!

I have also tried it from the side before, with no luck at all, not even a single nible. Must say that the water at the golf coarse side looks GREAT!!! This should be a great place for a comp. I think the problem will come in with the boat club there. If anybody has contacts to pass on to the powers that be, let's give it a go. The dam before that one should also be great for a comp, it is much bigger! B)

It's not a bad Lake, security of the cars at the public banks is my only concern. Maybe we can ask the boat club if we can launch there?!?!
