Alwyn Viljoen hoping for a bite among flooded thorn bushes in a 92,6% full Alberts Falls dam last weekend.

News from Jan at The Kingfisher in Pietermaritzburg: Just like that, the first month of 2022 is over … The fishing has been great on all fronts with weather being the only limiting factor.

The freshwater facets have been as hot as the weather. There have been some good bass caught, the trout are still active and the carp are filling the keepnets.

The bass have been on a topwater mission in the last week. The evenings and early mornings are the best for the topwater bite. Look at using a buzzbait to cover more water.
