Whilst swimming a live bait Bonito for a Marlin this shark took an interest .
@Izakbass I cut my teeth fishing bass here in the northeastern US. My dad has fished tournaments with a club for years again since he retired (it took a hiatus when I was a kid for quite some time). In our area it is a mix, lakes for Largemouth but also several rivers and lakes with very good smallmouth fishing. Spent a good chunk of my youth dropping tubes and burning crankbaits out of the family bass boat (which in my youth was a flat bottom rig with a jet outboard for running rocky shallow river areas). 13lb is a serious bass. Best largemouth for me maybe 5-6lb, best smallmouth close to 5. Our area is just a bit too cold in a given year to grow monster largemouth, but the smallmouth get some size to them. Nice photo in the avatar too. I grew up running beagles on rabbits and my dad ran coonhounds for years before I was born.
I would love to fish in water that blue! Beautiful!
That particular day the water was unbelievable , with very little wind as well. The fishing is better in Mozambique when the water has a bit of a chop to it .
Got back yesterday from our annual summer vacation, 4 weeks in Prince Rupert, British Columbia (20 days on the water). Plenty of nice little halibut, but the salmon were slow up until the last few days we were there.
Looks pretty darn tasty to me. Looks like you were outside a bit.
Wow, 20 days on the water!?!? That's what I call a fishing vacation! Nice fish!
Ha thanks yeah I'm pretty well-done right now. It was a great time, lots of friends and family joined us on the boat. Always great to introduce people to the wonders of the sea.
HI Bsto270 thanks for your chat. I am fortune to have these lakes around with these quality bass. It's almost time for the big females to move in shallow to Spone. Looking forward to this next 2 months. We do have smallmouth bass in south Africa but more towards the Cape province where it can get very cold. The only lake up north that has small mouth bass is called blyderivierpoord dam. Only fishing there on invitation.
Got these bush pigs over the weekend.
Nice looking pigs. What breed of dogs do you run?
Also one monster of a bass. Was just out harassing smallmouth with a fly rod the other day. Four smaller ones but a good time..
Sailfish caught on a popper whilst casting to bait
followed by a safe release and a very satisfied fisherman
we often snorkel in the water whilst taking a break on the ocean or when the temperature is very hot
Pete, if you follow the sun home at the end of the day, you end up in the wrong country.
dammit... now you tell me!!!
i wondered why everyone's been looking at me funny!!!
