Lekker man... In the few times i have fished bullshoek i have always had good success... the deep water drop offs and reed beds always produced the goods.

As for standing on the kayak... very do-able. Just takes some practice, but with your new quiet approach do our really need to stand to increase your strikes.....

Dont know bullshoek?

Still want to do Clanwilliam - going to see a client there within the next month, so going to make a weekend out of it and pull out some lunkers while im there.... (No reason not add the positive affirmations about that...)

Have some nice articles of the dam in old fish mags of past, will then review them and fine some nice spots.

Always wanted to try out clanwilliam dam and thats my opportunity...

Will first rig the yak out properly for basss fishing with all the lure pockets etc, makes life alot easier im guessing, as scratching around in a tackle boxe is just too noisy, cumbersome and impractical.

Another idea i saw on youtube once that looks awesome is side stabilisers which gives you the option to stand on the yak - a super idea for bass fishing - since standing helps strike better...

Im not sure where sitari is...

The dam im talking about is in Faure.

You drive from kuilsriver to somerset west - just before somerset west is the olive estate on your right hand side. Just before that is the robots and on the right hand side of those robots is a recycling plant / place of some sort. there you would turn left (note, turn left coming from Kuilsriver side), once you have turned left you will notice what used to be a petrol station, and a some other shops including dixons security (not sure whether he has a board up but one o my clients, hence how i know of the dam), also i think a small hardware store and further down the road is trevvis upholstery. Drive past the old petrol station and keep left, you will then come to a dam.

This dam is not visible from the road so i assume few know of this dam since the area looks dodge as well.
In front of the dam is an open grass patch which is next to (old) faure engineering.

I will be going there sometime soon to check it out - first taking revenge on DK dam (doordekraal)

How do you get access to the dam... I presume we are talking about the one that is situated on what will be the new Sitari Estate?

However since noone yet seems to know about Kuilsriver, give it a shot and let us know if it is worth it Wink

Well, I chose the freshwater dam near Tygervalley, what a pleasure it was... (first actual fishing trip for my ski Great)

Sad to say no luck, what a challenge fishing bass on a ski when all you used to is larged size speed boats duh , kind of changes the picture.... ALOT!

If anyone else wants to sometime try some bass, carp or barbel (apparently there is barbel there too), im always willing to go....

Tight Lines all

Good to know... myself and Bulky were looking at fishing the dam at the back of Kuilsrivier...(the trout one) Do you know if it is worth investigating?

cool Doug, not too worry, this blanking wont last long i'm sure, if you got them from another craft you will soon be catching way more on the stealth, get used to your new ski and then we'll put you into the fish. cheers

Beaches are so packed you cant get parking let alone drive there or walk freely to the sea. Water is clear and conditions not looking good. I'm out.

Update Strand

Post by Sean Wethmar on Tue Jan 05, 2010 10:03 am

Well it's been challenging few Weeks in general with the wind all over the place and odd fish coming out here and there but nothing fantastic! Hopefully in the coming weeks we see change as i personally am feeling a bit depressed without decent fish for a few Weeks now. Today the swell is up in Strand and weather also too good! Could maybe try for elf the evening.

Was at Breeded over new year, but just small stuff (kob). Saw many photos of amazing cataches up on the wall at the bush bub (kob of overy 50KG) some of them recent.

Melkbaai or if swells drops Blakes, anyone else keen?
