Bass were first introduced to waters in South Africa in 1927 when 47 largemouth bass fingerlings were imported to the country (45 survived the ocean voyage). Smallmouth bass were introduced 10 years later, 29 survivors of an original shipment of 55 fingerlings landed in Cape Town on 22 October 1937, their descendants have thrived and expanded. For bass fishing fans this is great news with some world class bass angling to be had throughout the country. Bass fishing in South Africa is on a catch and release basis, please return all bass caught to preserve future stocks.
