Bass fishing on a sup (stand up paddle board)

Cuba and I managed to go bass fishing the other day. I had done some research on some bass dams in the midrand area that I wanted to check out. Research means looking on google earth marking the dams and seeing how to get there. The mission was to go Bass fishing on my sup.

So the day came and I loaded the fishing sup on the car and all the tackle. We had water and food. I had also made a cool thing to attach my camera on to get some footage from a little further away. I had my head strap also. I did manage to get some interesting footage that I need to edit and upload to youtube.

I found a dam and it looked very promising. The other dam was in the midstream estate and the guys on sealine forum said it was very cool. It was when I checked it out but I could not use my fishing sup. So we just walked around and Cuba ran around on the golf course for a bit. The first dam was on private property and the security guard would not let us in. I will be going back to the Midstream dam without all the equipment and just a fly rod.

So in the end I decide to go the the dam below Stoke City. I went my normal route only to find that the road below the dam wall had been washed away and it was impassable. So again I felt like we where being blocked to go Bass fishing on my sup. I decide that I will find the other way round to get to the dam. Nothing like an adventure and I found the other road to get to the dam. So I got the fishing sup offloaded and all the goodies attached. Cuba and I fished the dam from one end to the other but not a single bite. I am blaming the heavy rain for doing something to the bass. So it is back to google earth and l am going to find some new dams to go Bass fishing on a sup.
