South Coast Bass Association (SCBA) members competed in the KwaZulu-Natal Small Craft League (SCBL) final at Midmar dam on Saturday.
Four SCBA members were among the 50 anglers who competed in the event and performed very well.
Allan Steyn landed second place in the biggest bag stakes and Manus Erasmus caught the second biggest bass – a fish of 3.7kg.
The previous competition took place at Baynesfield dam in Eston last month and was won by Brian Steyn, the son of Allan Steyn. The father and son team is a force to be reckoned with and one to watch in the future.
The KZN SCBL is a new bass fishing tournament consisting of eight competitions at different venues in the province throughout the year.
This was the inaugural year of this new and exciting national tournament, which caters for all small craft fishermen.
No petrol-operated outboard motors are permitted. Anglers fish from small craft fitted with electric sneaker motors and kickboats and the league strictly practices catch and release.
Negotiations are underway with SABAA that would qualify top anglers for KwaZulu-Natal and Protea colours. At the moment, the top anglers nationwide qualify to compete in a FLW-hosted tournament.
