Clanwilliam Dam Regional Event 2 on 10 September 2017

After finishing with a descent bag of 4.99kg for 5 fish on the first regional event for the previous day I was hoping that my soft stick bait pattern would repeat itself on Sunday.

Fortunately, I had a better draw on day 2 and decided to hit the more productive area of day one first and managed to get there with only 3 other boats in the general area.

I had an area of rocky bank to work and are battling for an  hour or two discovered it was time to switch tactics. Out with the bait casting rods and in with the ALX Maestro 7ft spinning rod and Lews reel on 8lb fluoro while changing the stick bait to a grub.

After no fish, I decided to give myself at cut-off time of 09:00 to leave the area. I literally said: “Last cast”, and bang fish on. Within 15 minutes I had a second one from the same area. I carefully worked the bank up and down until about 14:00 when I caught my 5th fish, a beauty of 2.085kg and after thanking Jesus for the wonderful opportunity of catching my PB in a regional event that was it for me.

For my last and PB fish I had changed over to an ALX Speed Fury bait casting rod and my trusty Quantum PT Tour reel spooled with 10lb Viscious Fluoro. Same grub as before. I was glad I had slightly heavier line for the big fight!

After fishing 14th for Day 1 (4th in Category C) and 11th for Day 2 I found out I had won Category C after getting a bag of 5.93kg with my PB fish being the difference between my two days.

I would like to thank my Heavenly Father for His protection and the opportunity to compete, my family, Blue Water Gear, Wolf Lures Flies & Feathers, Hooked on Bass and Ol’ Big Mouth & Outdoors who have all contributed hugely to my fishing as well as my late dad Fielie Jacobs and my brother Willie Jacobs who loves bass fishing just as much as I do.
