Hi Everyone

I went Bass fishing with Johan and got hooked to the sport real bad. As a kid I used to do carp fishing, but never really liked it - no action.

After the days fishing I discovered our fishing equipment is way outdated and went to buy myself a baitcaster reel, graphide rod and some lures & hooks. I went to Vasfontein on Sunday afternoon and caught 2 beaties. Tongue

Hey Pottie

Welcome to my addiction! It is great to have another bass maniac aboard! I am sure you will benefit greatly from the website. Feel free to ask advice and give your feedback at any time.

I must however ask you to please have a scan through the forum before asking certain questions as many common questions have been answered already. Although some of us do not mind repeating ourselves as information does sometimes tend get lost in the mass of forum replies.

Enjoy and please feel free to contact me with any queries you may have. Big Grin
Sometimes the fishing is so bad not even the liars catch anything!!!!

Tis true boys, this affliction rules my crazy life. I was kicked in the head by my daddy when i went to lip his PB and it escaped, I got face slapped by the bass's tail and mah pa, bliksemed me with his old Penn 49 sea reel................I still feel his crazy glare while beating me withe the reel.
