The fourth an­nual Buco Ju­nior Bass Clas­sic took place at Set­tlers Dam re­cently. Over 30 ju­niors from all over the East­ern Cape ar­rived at the dam to try their luck.

Al­though the dam is very low at the mo­ment, the young an­glers were still able to launch their boats. The com­pe­ti­tion, which catered for boys and girls, was di­vided into three cat­e­gories, U9, U13 and U18.

Fish­ing started at 8.30am and the weigh in took place at 1pm, at the main slip­way at the dam.

A lot of bass were caught and the ju­niors had a lot of fun dur­ing the day.

The U9 sec­tion was won by Wil­liam van Aarde, the U13 sec­tion was won by Mor­gan Lisher.

The U18 win­ner was Liam Tal­jaard.

The Al­bany An­gling As­so­ci­a­tion thanked their spon­sors, whose do­na­tions helped put the event to­gether. Quentin du Preez of the Al­bany An­gling Club said the com­mit­tee is al­ready plan­ning the 5th Buco Ju­nior Bass Clas­sic which they say will be big­ger and bet­ter.
