I recently caught my first bass at Rust de Winter Dam. It weighed ±1,5kg and was caught on grubs. It is my biggest catch ever! I’m very proud of myself – Danette de Lange


We went for a fishing trip to a private dam in Thabazimbi this past weekend. Even though it was cold, wet and windy, I caught this 3.6kg beauty at 12:30, which is now my new personal best. I tore my ankle ligaments runnig back to the water after the weight measuremen­t, but it was definitely worth it. She was safely released to be caught again another day, when she grows past 4kg. Thank you for a great bass fishing magazine. – Llewellyn Kruger


This is my new PB, weighing 1,5kg! It was caught in the Umgeni River right before Nagle Dam. It is very scenic and has tons of cover to fish. The fish was caught on a pumpkin coloured Zoom Trick Worm. The fish gave a lovely fight and was released for someone else’s future enjoyment. – Jason Wing


Keaton Ramsey caught his first ever bass of 0,863kg at Roodekopje­s Dam on a white Hillbilly spinnerbai­t. He said it felt like the bass was going to pull him of the boat. He fought back and lip landed this beautiful bass himself. – Hennie Wiese


Ek het albei hierdie bass by Oppie Koppie Bass Farm, net buite Brits gevang. Albei is gevang met ‘n bruin Senko wat ge-Wacky rig was... Baie dankie vir ’n wonderlike tydskrif en al die goeie raad – Dean Strydom (Let wel: Oppie Koppie Bass Farm is nie meer oop vir die publiek nie – Red.)


I took my son, Nathan (8 years old) out to a dam just outside Ceres/Hamlet and the water was super clear. You could see the bass swimming after your lure and just turning away from it. He was throwing a Berkley Juice Worm and picked up this monster of a bass. His was the only one caught that day making me a very proud dad indeed. – Mark Quinn


My seun, Declan (15), het in Oktober 2017 by Riverside Lodge naby Loskopdam gaan kamp en die swartbaar van 1.1kg met 4” Watermelon Black Minnow gevang. Hy het weer probeer en toe ‘n kurper van 1.7kg (‘n monster) met ‘n finesse Bullfrog wurm aan ‘n Wacky rig gevang. – Johan du Toit
