Elmero crowned as Bass Champ!
First off, i just want to thank everybody who joined us at Bronkhorstspruit Dam this past weekend. It was the most well attended Freshwater Kayak fishing competition in the History of the sport, and you were part of it!
Well done to Elmero Korff who managed to get the only Bass of substance all weekend, a nice Bass of 660 grams. The fishing was extremely tough, with only 8 bass being boated all weekend amongst 20 anglers. The Dam does have very nice structure and definitely does hold some nice Bass. Dirty water, motor boat wakes and over fishing were common factors that we identified for the poor fishing. It would be really nice to get back to Bronkies in the spawn.
The Sunday Comp was called off due to poor weather and even poorer fishing.
The results from Saturdays comp:
1st Elmero - 2 x bass - biggest - 660g
2nd Buks - 1 x bass
2nd Quintin - 1 x bass
2nd Brian - 1 x bass
2nd Lloyd - 1 x bass
Other entrants: Francois; Nicci; Anthea; Dennis; Andrew; Stan, Dan; Sydney; Arno; Derrick; Stuart
Elmero takes 50 points from this comp and leads the series going into the final stretch of the season. Good luck Elmero, we coming for you!
We introduced a prize for this competition, and it definitely added some excitement, with something to fish for. Not that we a taking it super seriously, but we have always spoken about it, and it adds to the weekend. For the next comp, you will not be liable to win the prize, if you do not pay your entrance into the comp before the comp starts. It was a logistical nightmare for me to approach every person to confirm that they wanted to fish in the competition. Which reminds me, please pay me your entrance fee if you have not yet.
I will keep you posted about the next competition, I think sooner rather than later.
Thanks again to everybody!
