SA BASS has been the leading bass magazine since 2001 for everyone who loves bass fishing. In this issue we focus on catching autumn bass.

“How to... Catch Lunkers”
After catching my new 5.14kg PB I thought it best to consider the facts and write on how to catch your own lunker at Inanda Dam. – Bryan Leppan

“Subtle Deep Water Hideouts”
I would like to highlight deep water areas that can add a whole new dimension to your bass fishing. It requires a completely different mindset for anglers who are used to the energetic ways of shallow water fishing, but will necessitate the same, if not more concentration over the hidden terrain you will be targeting. – Roger Donaldson

When you stand among anglers that’s on their way to fish a tournament and ask them if someone can tell you about the scrounger bait... they will go quickly change the subject. – Bennie Wiese
