    Default Bass fishing near Pretoria

    Hi everybody, just read through all 18 posts in this section and didn't find what I was looking for.

    The two boys have started bothering me and it's time to dust off the bass fishing kit again.

    Any suggestions as to where we can go fishing this weekend?

    My two boys are aged seven and five so facilities would have to be child friendly and wife friendly as well. Braai facilities would be a bonus as well as toilet facilities for the wife. (Guess that would actually be non negotiable. )

    Anything close to Pretoria? We situated in Doornpoort and have been to Oppi Koppi bass farm a few times but it seems as if the bass there are overfished.

    Any info on Vasfontein Bass Estate?

    Thanks in advance for all the info.
    Ronnie

    Roodeplaat dam, Rust de Winter. Renosterkop. I believe Rietvlei has bass as well.

    The bass at Rietvlei are only worth considering if you can bribe the guys to let you take a boat to the north corner at the reeds(buoy No.7)Highly doubt it,fishing from the side usually gets you back to the bakkie with a sore back and nothing to show for your efforts!

    Been there a few times, last time very disappointed. No bites, bad condition and not much to write home about. I know after that they cleaned out the dam and apparently it's back up to the awesomeness I was though, so call them and find out!

    Also remember your gun, seriously. I've never felt safe there.

    I believe Rietvlei is now on fire, some nice fish coming out there.

    Just a note when considering a dam like Rust de Winter, PLEASE done wade there is HUGE crocks and on my last visit there almost had a accident with the hippo that around the conner from the slipway.

    Thanks Mioski. I stay in Doornpoort quite close to Pretoria North so anything in that area would be great. Whereabouts is Itumela?
