19 Major Bass members, 10 men, 6 ladies and 3 juniors attended the January Fish Off at Inanda, where 8 year old Thomas Stephens landed the biggest bass, and his PB, a magnificent fish of 3,510kg.

The winners: (L-R): Eldred Koekemoer, Kobus Cronje, Annette Ground and Ken Ground. Front: Thomas Stephens.

 At the captain’s meeting the fishing time for Saturday was set to start at 09:00 with final lines up at 18:30, and from 04:00 until 12:00on the Sunday.


First Overall – Eldred Koekemoer with 10.95 points; Second Overall – Kobus Cronje with 10.59 points; Third Overall – Harry Adamson with 10.26 points; Fourth overall, the coveted Rose Bowl– Ken Ground with 9.90 points; First Lady – Annette Ground with 9.32 points, First Junior – Thomas Stephens.

*The next Fish-Off will be held at Nagel Dam on the first weekend of February, subject to the findings of a recce to the dam to determine if it will work as a venue for Major Bass. Should

Nagel not be suitable, Inanda will again be fished. Members will be advised.
