Theo: Tight lines everybody!!! Have a great weekend and chat again on TUESDAY 8)
Webster: "LIKE"
Theo: Tex, anywhere on the water with a bass rod in the hand is a great time :D :D
Texan: i hope so bud. might just pot around murrys tomorrow.
Theo: By tomorrow this time my arms will be tired from battling with all the mammas I am catching at Boskop :P
Texan: hay hay Theo!
Theo: Hallo hallo hallo 8)
Texan: Morning All!
Basslover: His boat is looking good!! A lot better then what I did....
Theo: So Oosthuizen, when are we seeing the pics of your boat?? Put them on and we can follow the progress 8)
Theo: Thanks Bassa, same to you 8)
Bassaholic: Good luck bud. I might be there on Sunday
Theo: Our biggest handbrake for fishing at this stage is the constant change in pressures! It varies between 1015hPA and 1023hPA and our green friends do not like this very much :S
Theo: For sure!!!! Looking at the weather it might well be the same weather for the comp, so pre fish is good idea :D
Bassaholic: Morning guys. I see a tough prefish this weekend is on the cards.
Theo: Hallo hallo hallo 8)
Dewald: Morning morning guys
Lynx: safi check in recent thread "Hitting Boskop tomorrow" for report/photos from last weekend where some of us were down there
galloway: thx! Theo will definitly try my best just try to get all the required stuff and join u guys it really looks like some good fun and experience
Theo: Wie is jou oom????? Ek het nie met jou tannie getrou nie :S
Ettiene: Oom Theo!! dis die beste advise! Kom fish saam TBC. ;)
safi: howsit guys , hows boskop fishing ?
Theo: I just wish the barometer pressures will drop now and settle :S . Until that happens, we will keep digging very deep to find our green friends :(
Theo: Our next comp is at Boskop and the guys got into some nice bass with frogs there this weekend
Theo: Your best bet and information source will be to come and join us at the comps! It is much easier to explain it while on the water than on paper 8)
galloway: what i actually intrested in is someone to tell me and may when get change to show me how to fish with the frog O.O i bought this little floatable frog dont know what its called !! but the salesrep told me guarenteed fish : :D :D hunderd bugs late and got it for almost 8mths and could not land a fish!!i dont know what i"m doing wrong :_(
Theo: Bassaholic and 6Bass9 are the Springs boys! They should be able to tell you more about venues in and around Springs 8)
galloway: 8) don"t stress will get there somehow :D
Theo: Sorry, but if I hear that name again it will be the second time :D
galloway: thx Theo!i also heard that one can fish miragepan also close to Nigel is that true!Also never been there!and how to get there
Theo: I do not think so! But you pay for day visitors a lot more than members would
galloway: Ok thx i will definitly try it out
galloway: is it not a private venue and u need to be a member!
Theo: 90% of the bass came from the "river" section on our last comp and the rest from the area by the day visitors
galloway: i can remember there close to the damwall is a camping site but i been further down the river if it is a river :D but could'nt see if any caught anything
Theo: Tooooo many spots to choose from!!! Reeds most of the way and then the odd tree or three and then some serious drops and rocks

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?!?!
