My second cover shot (SA Bass, South Africa, December 2013)

And once again, it’s a great honor for me to share with you folks my second cover shot on last month’s SA Bass magazine. The story is all about my trip to Loskop Dam in South Africa with Editor, Bennie Wiese and Publisher, Hannes Lindeque of SA Bass magazine. In all, we were there for 2 solid days and had a blast on the water fishing an offshore hump. As for me, I was fishing out of my comfort zone but I took a big gamble and hit the shots at the right time.

My second cover shot. This time, it with SA Bass magazine of South Africa (December 2013).

For a shallow water angler like me, bass fishing in the clear waters of Loskop Dam is no doubth way out of my strength. To make things even more difficult, Loskop is a place where you won’t find even the slightest form of vegetation, not even in the shallow pockets or creek channels. Frankly, that served as the one-two punch right on my face.

The rewards of the Loskop Swimbait Gamble at South Africa's Loskop bass fishery.

Knowing that I was staring at the face of defeat, I took a gamble, tied on a SPRO BBZ1 and decided to stick with that for the rest of my time on the water and never looked back. In all, that was probably one of the best on-the-water decision I have ever made as a non-tournament angler (period).

I’d like to thank Bennie, Hannes and co. for making this happen. Stay tuned for more stories to come.
