Autumn Bass Fishing:I believe that the basis of pattern fishing is the only way we can consistently locate and catch bass. I also belief that bass can only be located in about a third of the dam at any given time. See how I do it. – Japie Botha


Search Baits Uncovered: Since spending hours in my favourite tackle store up the road it has always been a great fascination of mine to watch anglers choose their lures. – Roger Donaldson


Frog Fishing: Frog fishing is without a doubt the most exciting way to catch a bass, short of using a grenade, and even that is debatable – Gareth Rawlins
