So we went out to Rust de Winter last week to do a bit of Bass fishing.

It is a very clean dam right next to Dinokeng game reserve so sometimes you get to see some game.

We managed to hook 3 little bass, but still gave me a lekker fight on the light fly rod :thumbup:

For those who would like to go;

There is no electricity and now fresh drinking water.

There is basic ablution facilities, but it is in a bad state with broken doors and most of the showers does not work, and no hot water.

This week they did not pump water so the toilets was in a very bad state :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

So if you go, you need to be fully prepared. It is a shame, this place has got a lot of potential :crazy:

Been Itching to go out there as I'm Not even 80km away...

Did the guys get carp & yellows off the shore do you need a boat?

Yes, the camp sites closer to the gate is rough and uneven for a caravan so we go all the way to the last stands where its more even.

They guy's caught off the shore...

I've been to rust de winter a few years back.

we caught a few small bass. Didn't try for carp

I'd like to go back soon. It's a fair drive from Midrand though and as stated the ablution facilities are quite bad.

The guys with boats were having better luck fishing. I'd not try wading in the water coz of the crocs
