Hey guys
Been on this group for a while, so I apologise for not introducing myself earlier.
I live in Stellenbosch. I love bass fishing, but cannot say I’m a serious angler, just really enjoy it.
My love for fishing comes from the fact that I grew up in Villiersdorp where my parents own a small apple farm which borders on the Theewaterskloof dam. There are also three small farm dams packed with bass on the farm. I grew up fishing in our small dams. The fish in the dams get up to about 1.5kg so still decent. Anyway, this December after hearing rumors that TWK is starting to get better and better and seeing some monsters being caught there, I finally decided enough was enough and pulled the tarpaulin off my dad’s old bass boat. I got the motor going and had a couple of mornings on the big dam… with no luck. Fishing TWK is such a different experience to a farm dam, there is just so much good looking structure and so much water, you don’t know where to begin. I definitely will keep fishing it, but have new found respect and trepidation for it.
I really enjoy this forum, especially the report backs, so thanks to all of you who report, I’m looking forward to posting a few of my own over the next while!
Welcome Stuart. I'm 100% with you on Theewaters.. I just have zero luck at that place. To be honest I prefer farm dams and rivers. Enjoy the site and happy fishing!

Welcome Stuart

TWK is dam full of tears of joy.

It has kicked me in the teeth a few times but is also responsible for my happiest memory of competitive fishing so far.

Low dam levels are not helping either...

Hi Stuba

I am in Strand and always looking for company to fish with, and of course also waters other than the scarce few spots i used to fish. Drop us a line if you are ever keen to wet a line.
Welcome to BFSA Stuba.
Ya, I rate TWK can be a tough venue for most anglers.
Look forwarded to reading your reports in the near future.
Welcome Stuart, you are in the right place. If we catch lots of fish all the time it would be called catching and not fishing........
