Hi

 

We are a family of Bass fisherman (Not specimen, fly fishing  or pap gooi) and I'm looking for family friendly venues within 3hours of JHB that have safe, clean camping facilities and decent bass fishing dams or maybe they are situated close to good dams where we can fish during the day (Witbank dam/Harties etc).  Safety is our biggest concern, we can rough it in resorts that are not 5 star but we have to be safe.  Any suggestions would be great, we know of a few but I am sure there are many we have never heard of. 

 

Thanks

TK

What about Bass lake lodge outside Pretoria....its about 35 km from the N1/Zambezi offramp in northern side of Pretoria. I am not sure about the fishing experience there, may some one else can help with that one, but can assure you of a very nice and clean resort with beautifull sites and one of the best ablution facilities available.

Nee oom Jeep....dit was "de Rust Caravan park" gewees. Maar hulle het ook intussen daai reel geskrap....keuses is groot....kan seker nie te kieskeurig wees nie.

I am dying to fish/camp there, have been for years but friends of mine that scuba there say it's not safe as there are holes in the fence and they have repeatedly had equipment stolen while they are in the water.   I spoke to the owner about 5 year ago and he said he had an issue with the locals on the river but also said he had a direct line to the local cops who came fast if there was a problem.  That was not good enough for us back then, not sure if the situation has changed recently but everytime I watch a fishing video from there I want to go again.   Have you camped there recently?

We use to be members and I loved it there but gave up our membership when we stopped camping for a few years.  I wonder if they let non members in now or if I would have to join again.  I actually looked at them this weekend and saw they charge R125 for midweek camping and told my hubby when he goes on his next trip the kids and I will be camping there.  I must just find out if what we need to do to get back in there.  It's a stunning resort, we never fished the last time we stayed there but can't wait to try.  Thanks.

My worst fear....Crocs, well that and criminals.  Thanks for the suggestion but not going anywhere near a place that has croc's, I escaped a attack once, not sure I'll survive a second time.

Weesgerus has also bass, but fishing areas are limited.

The best time for serious fishing at Weesgerus is out season when it is not crowded.

I normally go for the yellow kurper at Weesgerus, which is really a no: 1 for the locals.

I gave a caught one day to a fellow camper, which he smoked. Was really a delicious dish fot the piece I had. Unfortunately I do not eat what I hunt.

We did a scouting trip out to PTA to check out a few possible camping/fishing options out that way.  Bass Lake Lodge will be seeing us come summer, thanks for sharing the info.  It's stunning.

WEG tydskrif het n ruk terug n gids uitgebring met visvang oorde. Miskien handig vir die manne wat daarvan hou om lyne nat te maak
