Find Subtle High Percentage Areas For Bass

The single most important aspect of catching bass is to fish in the right spots, so-called “high percentage” areas. The latest, fanciest and most expensive lures can’t catch the fish if they aren’t there; to gain any sort of advantage in this regard requires practice couples with high-quality electronics. For tournament anglers this is one of the reasons why practice before an event is so important, and why locating the fish beforehand is essential to a successful tournament day. The same principle applies to social anglers as well.

Beast of a Cuda!

On Saturday 4 July Gert Krugel and I were invited to fish on Jason Farland’s boat, “Top Knotch” out of Richards Bay. The weather conditions forecasted were not in our favour, so our expectations were not all that high, but when our alarms went off at 04:30 we woke to an absolute pearlier of a day. After a quick cup of coffee at the garage and a short trip to Meerensee Boat Club we launched Jason’s boat. We were the first boat to launch, and while launching we were reminded that the sea conditions were not going to be good for the day and we would be back in the harbour before 10:00, but we laughed it off and set off.

After a quick stop to get a few live baits (mozzies) we headed out to a few reefs to try our luck, but while the sea was great and we had great showings on the fish finder nothing was biting, and even though we jumped from one reef to another we still had no luck. We then decided to try and catch a few bonnies so we set out the daisie chains and within a few minutes we had two good size bonnies in the lunatubes. We then decided to go target cuda on a reef about 12km from where we were, so Jason climbed on the gas and got us there pretty quickly. While travelling I rigged up the traces for the bonnies that we had caught so as not to waste time when we got to the spot.
