report back - earlyworm - 02-11-2018

Howsit everyone....
Hope it was a good weekend for all ..
Was out early this morning on the water, overcast conditions and a chance to use a old small paddle boat for a change..
With alot of enthusiasm I set out rowing to all new places I've never had the chance to reach. ..lots of hits but nothing landed..
After the boat session and no luck,tried walking the banks abit and behold my fortune changed...
Caught 4 beautiful bass with the largest been 500g all in 1 hour...
Still searching for that beast of the deep or shallows hahaha...
Cheers guys..
Tight lines

Nice one EW. Thanks for taking the time to share. I am sure that beast of a PB is just around the corner!

Hey Oldworm,

What were you throwing? By the looks of the Lilly pads in that picture, you should have been trying a weightless senko or a horny toad?


RE: report back - earlyworm - 02-12-2018

Thanks Nav..
Old worm hahaha lekker jim..
Look il be honest I had my wife on board the row boat so never got to fully accomplish my quiet cruising approach with patience and the element of surprise on my side...was her first time out on the water fishing so no harm but no fish haha..
But when I go again on my ace there's definetly a whole bunch more I could've thrown and tried...

Was throwing(funny enough) an old watermelon seed faded white coloured ribbed worm,weightless and just trawling the shallows from the bank..
Got got hit after hit...was living life haha..

Old worm for the win!


RE: report back - Jim_From_Zim - 02-12-2018

You might just find that in a pond like that, the fish might just be looking for a reaction type bait - meaning that when food hops into the water a fish will chase it quickly to make sure he gets it and not his buddy parking just up from him.

Next time you go out, try something with flappy tail, like a paddle tail, a horny toad etc. Hell, I'd most likely post a spanner (spinner bait) into that kind of a pond for the reaction bite.


RE: report back - earlyworm - 02-12-2018

Usually the reaction baits work extremely well..I am familiar with those..
It's quite a large dam that I have privilege of fishing..it's got pretty much every kind of structure setup which is great..
Thanks for the advice Jim..


RE: report back - earlyworm - 02-13-2018

Just a view of what the dam looks like..

Very nice. Is that a golf course in the background. I'm from KZN so I will never find it. Big Grin


RE: report back - earlyworm - 02-13-2018
