Poortjieskloof on a full moon in spawn!
The competition was held on the weekend of 7/8 October, with the dam sitting at 35% water level. 25 Anglers taking on a two-day comp on this special piece of water in Montagu. We were in for a challenging event during spawn time.

The dam delivered some proper size bags of fish on day 1 of the competition with 7 anglers bringing in over 4 kilos to the scales. Even a massive 5.78kg 3-fish bag from Christopher Verreynne, a Montagu resident whose local knowledge proved to be very valuable this weekend.

The fishing wasn’t fireworks on Saturday in terms of numbers being caught, but some very nice size fish came out.

Sunday was a different story. The fishing was extremely tough as a cold front was busy moving in and only 4 of the 25 anglers were able to catch a 3-fish limit. Michael Eksteen, Dean van Huyssteen, Craig Crossman and Chris Verreynne.

Even a single fish on Sunday proved to be critical as it would boost you up the leaderboard by a few positions!

All the anglers tried their best to look after the fish and make sure we release them safely, especially the fat females that were filled with eggs. 
This time the big fish prize went to Jared Kruger with a beautiful largemouth of 2.4kg.
Congratz to the Top 5 finishers:  
1) Christopher Verreyne (9.7kg - 6 fish)
2) Dean van Huyssteen (7.72kg - 6 fish)
3) Craig Crossman (6.86kg - 6 fish)
4) Coenie Fourie (6.27kg - 5 fish)
5) Jaco de Wit (6.07kg - 5 fish)

We would just like to thank Ronel Tesnar from Montagu who made an exception for us to get earlier access. Everything went swiftly and we could get on the water asap! Thank you very much for your kind assistance.

Then we would like to give massive thanks to our sponsors this seaon: 
Brandin Walter from Outdoors 365 Equipment for awesome prize packages and vouchers ; JC Smit from Eddlesgass & Tackle for fantastic baits ; Pem Reyneke for the final prize (Piscess Predator Kickboat) ; Aluminium Build for the trophies at each competition ; Brent Webber from BWG for the new range of plastic baits ; Coenie Fourie & Charles Pitout for the cash prizes at Bulshoek for the Big Fish.

Without our sponsors, these events won’t be the same. We really do appreciate it.
Shot for all the anglers who competed, see you at Clanwilliam dam on 4&5 November!
