    Default Bass - southern suburbs

    Other than Zand vlei and Princess / Little Princess vlei does anyone know of decent bass venues in the southern suburbs or out Stellenbosh way ? I'd prefer to stick to this side of the mountain ranges (Du Toits Kloof or Sir Lowry's)...

    Thanks,
    Eben

    UCT has nice bass, but nothing seems to be biting at the moment (although I haven't been in 2 weeks). R250 a yr and permits are available from the Sports Centre

    hi there

    i know that the tygervalley quarry dams has big bass in but it is a good thing if you have a float tube. There is a couple off bass dams in the stellenbosch area,but i know in the swartland there is a lot!!
    If you guys feel like going to have a cast do contact me.

    hi john
    the one dam is managed by the university and no fishing is allowed there. the one at the waterfront we used to fish a lot before the development. the hassle now being able to find a good spot to fish with a fly line as most of the frontage leads onto a shop or restaurant. i dont think float tubing is allowed. i know when we fished those years ago there were no boating and no swimmimg signs posted around.
    The big dam in kenridge is also nice for bass.
    cheers

    hi dewald
    give me a ring if you want to look at nailing some bass. I'm a bit stuck at the moment as my wifes car packed up so now mine is needed for taxi and sports etc.
    would love to go
    cheers

    Hi Dewald / Roland,

    If you don't mind an extra rod along I'm keen to fish some spots in and around D'ville.

    Only spots I fish for bass are Bottelary (spelling??) and Eikenhof.

    Default Spotted Bass

    Besides Weisenhoff, has anyone caught spotted bass at other venues in the western cape? I fished a private dam this weekend, and got pulled all over the show on a 5weight by a 750g bass... It fought like hell and upon close inspection (jawline and rough patch on tongue) it turned out to be a spotty.
