Hi Guys
I've hauled my V boat out of the attic and got back on the water at TWK. I had a little action on Christmas morning at the Greymead bridge, but they were all dinkies.
TWK is a big piece of water for my 64 year old legs to handle and I would love to get out on a few smaller dams - Any ideas are welcome.
Is Mofam a kicker friendly spot? Are there any decent Plaasdamme in the Boland / Overberg area that are worth a visit?
Thanks

Welcome back Bombasstic.

I don't think Mofam will allow you with the waterskiing activity.

I am sure one of the puddlehoppers would comment soon but I believe the Breede River might a good choice.

Thanks, it's good to be back on the water. I also got some great pics (with my cell) of the birds nesting in the dead timber. Early morning (5ish) is fantastic on TWK.
The water was quite warm so I think the bigger fish were in deeper, cooler water. The water is also a lot darker than I remember - could be because the dam is very full and the water is lapping above the recent "water mark"?
The fish didn't want to know about any plastics or spinners - a bright orange shallow crank did the trick. (like I said, all dinkies though)
I packed up and went in again at Aphrodisiac Shack. I spent about an hour throwing frogs etc. into the grassy stuff, with no luck - but it looks like a very promising spot, so wind permitting, I'm going there just after a breakfast of left overs . . .or trifle MMmmmm

Ps . . . where on the Breede? Are there bass in the river just below Quaggas? Or at the camp site in Bonnyvale?

There is campsite where you cross the Breede from Kwaggas side. Look right and you see a klip krans, on the other side of that is a wild farm, called.... Klipkrans.

Spent a weekend there. but we did not even got a nibble. Very nice camping on the bank, but seems like the place cater more for the papgooiers.

Try the Breede from Robertson to Bonnievale onwards. Any camp site with good pools etc. should deliver.

Something else. When you on a kickboat on a big dam. Don't be intimidated by it. Pick a bay, and treat the bay like any other small dam. You will be working it harder that if you were on a boat.

Good thinking. You are right, instead of concentrating on working one spot, your head starts thinking that things will be better in another bay on the dam.
I live only 15 min away from TWK and it would be great to work through this dam, bay by bay. True - why go Robertson when I can just go to a different bay on TWK. Thanks
Anyone interested in kicking it onTWK - give me a shout. Company is always welcome.

I like that approach, and rightly you'll produce better results... I always seem to think the proverbial grass looks greener around the next corner :blue-rolleyes:

Did you end up fishing Doordekraal today? (Tygervalley) You'll need a permit to fish the dam (issued only by the Durbanville municipality for Doordekraal.), in addition to a Cape Nature fresh water fishing permit. Haven't been there in ages, but also very restrictive when bank angling...
