Amatola Bass Classic 2017 Vlog 3

For those who missed the Mercury Amatola Bass Classic - I thought I would share our experience over the few days.. here is Day 3!!!

We woke up at 4am, got dressed, had a lekker coffee, got the boat ready and waited at our designated spot at “31” for boat & livewell inspection.

At 6am the boats started launching from number 1 to 75, one by one they were pushed off, idling to the buoys before letting rip! The nerves have kicked in hard but was such a surreal experience which I will remember forever, the smell of petrol fumes, excitement in the air and once the “big boy bass boats” opened up they looked like they were flying on top of the water to get the secret spots. Incredible sight!

Markus landed the first fish on a black buzz bait, Stevo the second on white swimjig (cane thumper trailer) and myself the third largie on a junebug fluke.. The bite slowed down for a few hours and picked up again when we figured out a pattern. We managed to land 21 dinks the entire day and only 3 of the 21 qualified to be weighed and the rest were culled (released). At 5pm after weigh-in we were a bit disappointed in the size of bass we caught as we knew these were definitely not competition winning fish but we were surprised when got to the campsite to hear some people caught nothing the entire day and the biggest caught on the day was 1.7kg? WHAT – there are 5kg’s swimming around?

One of my favourite moments was sitting down, staring at the fire sipping a cold beer and hearing the buzz of everyone talking in the campsite “I hear the biggest bass is 1.7kg, we could totally beat that tomorrow”, “I wonder what lure he used” and my favourite “man that was some tough fishing today”..

Early braai and hit the bed – just to do it all over again the next morning…

Hope you enjoy Day 3’s video - please like, subscribe and share!
