FEATURES

. The Donkey rig
For as long as bass fishing has been around, anglers from all parts of the world have at one time or another used their imagination and ingenuity to catch more or better fish.

. Breaking down the pattern
You can cast the best lures available on the market, but if you are not casting where the fish are, you won’t catch anything. The first step in determining a pattern is to find the fish.

. The morning spin - A take on spinnerbait mornings
When it comes down to bassing in the dawn there’s always one lure I can count on to break the ice.

. Spring flooding - Ins and outs of flooded vegetation
Hunting down bass amongst flooded vegetation in the spring time can lead to some really great catches. Once you have worked out which foliage cover to target and what baits are getting nailed it becomes very exciting.

. In die hitte van die stryd
Omrede die meeste van ons net oor naweke kan hengel, kan ons nie bekostig om te wag dat die weer ons lot bepaal nie. Ons moet elke beskikbare geleentheid wat ons kry gebruik om by die baarswaters uit te kom.

. Die Carolina-strop
Die Carolina-strop word beskou as een van die mees effektiewe metodes om groot, vashaaklose areas te dek wanneer swartbaars gesoek word.

. Net wat die dokter bestel het
Daar is tye wat ons almal ‘n vinnige wegbreek-sessie nodig het. Dit is dan wanneer ek ‘n stok of twee gryp en afsit na een van my gunsteling waters toe.
