I have been targeting post spawn bass hunting along the thermoclin­e. Cranks and spinnerbai­ts are very effective in this technique. Thanks for a great magazine. – Gary Peter


Ek het verlede week sommer vir die pret saam met my skoon- en kleinseun naby Newcastle na ‘n plaasdam gegaan en vir die pret ook ‘n bass-stok in my hande geneem. Dit was die heel eerste keer in my lewe. As see-en-rotshengel­aar was dit ‘n snaakse gevoel om die plastiese wurmpie in te gooi. Met my derde of vierde gooi het ek hierdie swartbaar geland... groot pret! Geen skaal, geen liniaal, net die foto. En nou is ek ook ge-”hook”. Lekker maand en groete. – Gerhard Cillié


This is my daughter Jade (9), who caught this 5.3kg bass in Paddock, KZN in December 2017. The fish was successful­ly released back into the dam to fight another day This was her personal best, beating her previous record of 3kg just two weeks prior. She is a keen deep sea fisherwoma­n as well. She was so proud of that fish and even more proud when she safely released it. Thanks for such an awesome magazine. Loads of info and tips - always a pleasure to read. – Lisa de Beer (Some anglers spend their whole life hoping to catch a bass this size, well done Jade! – Ed)


I caught this beautiful bass at Wagondrift Dam near Estcourt. It weighed in at 1.3kg and was one of the only fish caught that day. I used a Green Pumpkin Dead Ringer. Thanks for a great magazine. – Michael Morris


Last weekend my friend and I went to Albert Falls Dam and had a very productive weekend. We caught alot of fish from the 1kg to the 1.5kg range with the exception of one 2.46kg fish and another 3.15kg fish. – Nathan Gilbert


My friends and I went fishing at a private venue in Zimbabwe. The fish were incredibly strong and big. My friend, De Wet, caught a 3,6kg bass and Jan-Karel caught a 4.0kg monster. I managed to land a 3.2kg bass. – Wilhelm Roos
