FEATURES

. Transducer installation and sonar setup
There are basically three mounting options, the standard transom-mount skimmer, through-hull transducer, and the trolling motor mount. In each category, there are various options to choose from to meet your needs and/or budget.


. Let’s get knotty - A beginner’s guide to knots
There are so many different knots that the angler can use but is it really necessary for the bass angler to know hundreds of knots? I don’t believe so.

. Summer experiments - Getting out your comfort zone
Summer bassing is just too much fun to the point where it doesn’t matter how sunburnt we get. As long as we catch bass all day we anglers couldn’t be happier.


. Floating worms
What is it about the floating worm that makes one want to try it? Well, it is quite an enigmatic technique that either works when nothing else does or doesn’t work at all.


. Best weather apps for fishing
How we approach our fishing trips have changed tremendously over the past few years and with today’s technological advancements in the palm of our hands, we can prepare our trips well in advance. 


. Get to the back - A take on backwater bassing
The backwater of any river, lake, or large dam is a mysterious, forgotten world where big bass roam. That’s if you can find them of course.


. Taking kids fishing
I think the reason why many parents don’t take their kids fishing might be that they don’t know where to start or how to make fishing fun for they are kids.

. SA Bass-tydskrif ploeg terug
Ons het besluit om op gereëlde basis kursusse aan te bied vir oud en jonk. By hierdie kursusse, wat langs die water aangebied word, fokus ons op verskeie aspekte wat die hengelaar se hengelsukses beïnvloed.
