This was a dry dreary, depressing winter as far as Largemouth fishing is concerned. In our area or within a 40km radius of Klerksdorp the river has not cleared sufficiently to make it a viable proposition to try and target them successfully. It all boiled down to pure luck if you happened to nail one as the visibility for stripping streamers just has not been sufficient.
We made a few fruitless trips until yesterday when I decided to explore further afield to see if the water clarity was better. We have been receiving some news and photographs of monster fish taken above Schoemansdrift and we headed there
Well, to cut a long story short, there were three Largemouths who were obliging and willing to break my long drought and I had one of the most amazing and satisfying 20 minutes of fishing I have ever had on the Vaal.
The black “Muishond” again produced the goods!
