MISTY This month the SA BASS Cast-for-Cash / FLW mobile weigh station was at Witbank Dam where Mpumalanga had their tournament.
We Dam are had gratefulrisen fromfor the 21% amountto 107%.of rain For we the had first becausetime this Witbank season we had great weather although the start of the tournament was delayed because of the heavy fog that only lifted at 09:30. While we waited everybody enjoyed a cup of hot coffee and the company of fellow anglers. After proper proceedings the green flag was raised. All the teams set off in a single line start but beyond the gates the race was on. The skippers had to chase through the gorge to get to their fishing spots on the main dam.
Young Nathan Wickham weighed the heaviest fish for the day before noon and for the rest of the day the weigh station was quite. Only fifteen minutes before the tag board closed did the teams start to come in for the weigh in. Eventually all teams managed to catch and weigh fish but it was Team Core; Tristan & Nathan Wickham who snatched the prize money for the day. With this win they moved from sixth place into second place on the Mpumalanga log standings, fighting for a spot at this year's FLW South Africa Championship to be held in July. Their aim is to qualify and represent FLW South Africa later this year in the USA at the Costa FLW Series Championship. The Costa FLW Series consists of five U.S. divisions – Central, Northern, South-eastern, South-western and Western. Each division consists of three tournaments with competitors vying for valuable points that could earn them the opportunity to fish in the Costa FLW Series Championship.
The top anglers from Canada, China, Mexico, South Korea and South Africa will also compete. The 2017 Costa FLW Series Championship is being held November, 2 to 4 on Kentucky Lake in Paris, Tennessee, USA.
