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.
