Crackleback 500 engine size Posted by: Expidite - 04-25-2021, 01:14 PM - Forum: Bass Boats - Replies (7)

Good day everyone.
I am new on here, and would like some opinions from CB 500 owners or copilots that have been on these boats.

I am in the market for a new or good secondhand one and would like to find out regarding engine size? Does the boat perform adequately with a 115 merc 4 stroke or is a 150 needed? I am not looking for ultimate speed. Just good allround performance. The plan is to buy right the first time and not need to upgrade soon.

The options at the moment is second hand:
Merc 150 optimax
Merc 150 EFI
Yamaha 150 2 stroke
Merc 200 EFI

And then new:
Merc 115 4 stroke
Suzuki DF 140 A 4 stroke ( reports say engine is a bit pap)
Merc 150 4 stroke 
Suzuki DF 200 A 4 stroke ( cheaper than merc 150 ) 

The CB500 boat is 5 m / 16 ft and rated from 90 to 200 hp.
Any input will be appreciated

PS , I am not a new boat owner, just never a bass boat.

Hi guys, I'm new here and took my son fishing for the first time, although we caught nothing using an antique wooden rod and a kiddies rod reel, we had fun learning how to reel and caste. Might I say it's both of our first time. Where in Cape Town is a good spot to actually catch bass in the nothern suburbs?

Hi there

I was just wondering, if anyone can give me some advice/contacts on where I can obtain bass fingerlings in KZN. It's for farm dam stocking purposes. ( zululand)

Any response would be hugely appreciated !!

Hey guys, 

Ive heard shimano has a new agent in SA, does anyone know if there is any truth to this?

If so who is the new agent. 

I'm trying to find out what the new rods that are coming in will be. Zodias? intenza? exprite? I have curados but have seen that they are being discontinued in the states. 


Bass Boat Wanted Posted by: MickeyM - 10-20-2020, 08:03 PM - Forum: Bass Boats - Replies (7)

Hi all,
Looking to upgrade from my splash bass to something a bit bigger.  

17 ft hull with 115-150hp.  Would consider a 16ft with a wide beam.  

My budget is around R100k.

From what I can see, there is very little available on the internet right now. I have registered as a potential buyer on bass

If anyone is looking to sell or has any kind of advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

Bass Fishing in my dam Posted by: Stelliesfishing - 10-18-2020, 05:33 PM - Forum: Report Backs - Replies (3)

Wow after 2 years of trying to stock my one dam with bass it paid of. Today I went fishing in my one dam and almost caught 20 bass in an 2 hour session.
The bass range from 300g to about 1.8kg. Its truelly amazing how wild these bass are, the one even went for just a hook.?

I am struggling to add images the photos are to big?
