Hi everyone

My name is Brian (hence the Big B). I have been fishing for all species since the age of 10 and at various stages have been a member of a bass club, a bank angling club, and a Light Tackle Boat club. 8 years ago I got nominated to fish for South Africa against the UK in Langebaan. Distress! My daughter was due to be born at the same time so I had to decline. I am glad I did and basically stopped all fishing for the last 8 years. I sold my boat, resigned from the bank where I worked, and started to work for myself from home. Being here for all those great, good, bad and ugly moments of the first 8 years with my daughter was immensely satisfying.

Anyway, Big B stands for Big Brian (I like my food) and not Big Bass (I will need something like a 5Kg specimen to back that up). Had a few around the 3KG mark from Bronkhorstspruit and a few high 2KG types from Germiston Lake but that was in a previous life BTB. (Before the baby).

So, 8 years was enough time for a break and the need to be out there has simply got to be too strong. So, I bought a boat from Shandon (got an Osprey) and dug out the Rapalas, Spinnerbaits, and so forth. It's been so long that the skirts on the spinnerbaits simply break into pieces when you touch them LOL I have bought a whole load of new lures, new line, a few new rods and reels, and a load of DVD's. Now I am looking forward to getting out there and catching a few.

For what it's worth, my structure and layout knowledge of Loskop Dam is pretty good and if anyone is going to fish the dam, they can feel free to send me a pm and I will share all my knowledge of the dam with them.

Welcome, welcome and welcome to the house of nutty bass fisherman I am sure within no time you will feel right at home.

A while ago we did a survey of how much experiance we have on the site which came back with a couple of hundred years between the members, now we have just added to that (we didnt count robdog and robfisher cause then we would have a couple of thousand :twisted: :twisted: ) Wink

Lubbepa who are your kids, are they members aswell??

Once again welcome to the happy and forever growing family of BFSA, I look forward to reading you in the forums, seeing you in the gallery and meeting you on the water Wink

Hi all, just kiding, im not shy, my name is Cobus and just recently started the Bass thing, been "pap gooing" for years now, but never bothered the Bass, due to my physical diss-advantage, lost my left arm in bike crash, so pap gooi is easy, all rigged up for a right hand man.......(ok, u can wipe ur tears now...),
I do my bassfishig at the Vaal river, close to Stone haven(for those who know the area), off the banks..(wife wont let me convert our boat), and landed 3bass with borrowed stuff, so the 1 arm thing might work, they were small, heaviest might be 600g, so not sure bout 1 right arm, a rod and a 3-5kg fight....we'll see oneday..

I also posted some q's under the beginner forum, if any would like to check, and i hope you guys out there can/will help me as i get more into the site and fishing

Cheers for now'

Well a very warm welcome Cobus… I’m sure you will get lots of advice from the boys! I think the secret for you is going to be a light rod and light baitcaster reel… Have a look at the Chronarch MG which is a very light reel… also the Curado 100 is a pretty good light reel as well.

Hi Cobus

I used fish Pap Gooi style for Eland and Southern Transvall in the days when it was still Southern Transavaal. During leagues, we always bumped into the one armed guy who always gave a good account of himself. Wonder if that was you?

Is Stonehaven the area where the house is built into the rock face? If so, the reed bush in the center of that bay (opposite) with the river mouth is my old carp spot when I used to fish Light Tackle Boat. About 20 meters from the bush it drops from 5 foot to 18ft, very steep. Never got a bass on those steep drop offs but further down towards the barrage, all the island points were pretty decent. The last point on the left before the barrage (the old dead tree area) always produced a bass or two. What you might also want to try is to go to the Rand Water Board area and get behind the reed bushes. There are 3 or 4 Big properties there with jetties and so forth. VERY shallow water (4 foot max). On some days I used to spin under those docks and often caught a surprise fish of over a kg.

Big B, Stoneheaven is far from the place where you talking about! Its in fact sitting next to Abrahustrust but just on the other side of the river! It’s next to the bridge that runs across the river!

Then welcome to the forum Cobus, hope you will enjoy it in the same manner as I did and hopefully we can get you into some nice fish pretty soon!

Thanks for that info. I never fished from a boat there at all. Too many boats and they often had those powerboat races over there. Although I went to Potch Uni Vaal River Campus, I never actually learned much about the names of the places on the Vaal and in and around VDB Park. It's all simply imprinted into that database that we keep in our heads. I can get to loads of places but I would struggle to explain and certainly don't know the names... LOL

I know what you talking about, but when one fish competitively learning the names of place is part of the game, if you hear the fish is coming out at a certain spot you must know where to find it! :blue-biggrin:
