BASSCRAZY: @Adriaan, not good, Kevin couldn't make it, I fished with Daniel (he fished like a champ!!). We only managed 37th. Well done Nuno, you kicked our butts properly!!!!! :_( :_(
Adriaan: So how did the C4C treat you guys ?
BASSCRAZY: Thanks Nuno, same to you!!!
The Bassanator: good luck to the guys doing cast for cash hope we beat u... lol :P
BASSCRAZY: Happy Birthday Chaddy & peetbass, hope you had a good one!!!!
The Bassanator: happy happy chaddy chaddy :P
StephenK: Happy birthday Wilmy, God bless you and your family.
Texan: Happy birthday Wilmy! hope you get to catch some small Aussy bass!
diablo fish: happy b-day everyone :O hope the year is filled with huge bass and new pb's
Dreamfish: Thanks Bassanator! :-*
Magic8ball: Tx bud, my only wish is for the winter to pass asap :P
The Bassanator: happy birthday vaughn ,ettiene and gerald hope u guys have a good one...
Fly Swatter: eish....can hardly wait to know next comp venues
Fly Swatter: You will have a ton of fun, sure of that
Van der walt: Still nervous but excited as I have always wanted to see what I'm capable off...the best part is to meet you guys and I'm sure once I have ,all will be good...
Fly Swatter: and well organised as well
Fly Swatter: it is very social
Fly Swatter: You can think of TBC comps as a couple of mates getting together to have some fun
Van der walt: That's good to know as it's something that's never mentioned when I see the results(feel more confident now) I am really nervous as I have never joined a comp and not sure what to expect...when I fish alone without distraction I always get fish as soon as I feel pressured the fish vanish :_(
Fly Swatter: vd Walt. You can win without a fishfinder. Texan did. I came 9'th, with no fish finder, and very little knowledge of the dams. So don't sweat it too much. main thing is just to get on the water and make start. TBC comps are great.
Fly Swatter: tx Tex :)
Texan: nice one fly swatter
Van der walt: that's nice need to get one of those...otherwise I don't see myself in the top anytime soon. The one I saw was R560 on bid or buy but looks really cheap and basic
Fly Swatter: it has the basics, and is in colour
Fly Swatter: Add R100 for delivery makes it R1900
Fly Swatter: I got an lowrance elite 3x brand new from ganis for R1800
Van der walt: need to do the mods as well before the season starts...fish finders are crazy expensive unless you get a cheapo one...need to justify it with the misses.
Fly Swatter: changing rod rack from horizontal to vertical, adding fish-finder, adding "landing basket"
Fly Swatter: using the "off" time to pimp my kickboat
Fly Swatter: Yeah, bursting at the seams to fish as well
Van der walt: yeah very quite, guess everyone is just relaxing before September's fishing rush... :D
The Bassanator: this fourm is to quite latley :O
The Bassanator: come now september :P
diablo fish: happy happy tiaan !!!!!! n'joy your day!!!!!!
BASSCRAZY: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIAAN!!!!! HAVE A GOOD DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BASSCRAZY: Happy Birthday Coop, Trust you have a good one!!!!!

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?!?!
