This Post Has 4 Comments Rishen 9 Jan 2020 Reply Hi Where can you recommend on the Vaal for decent accommodation and opportunity to catch bass and carp this weekend (11 Jan) . This is a birthday trip for my son and I really want him to catch some fish. Weather forecasts rain this weekend so not sure if this is the best weekend ? We are from JHB and have tried most of the commercial dams in and around here with not much success. (Muldersdrfit – all the dams, Rietvlei Alberton etc) Hence we thought the vaal maybe a better option Your advice would be sincerely appreciated anglinks 11 Jan 2020 Reply Hi Rishen, So sorry for replying quite late. In our experience catching bass in the Vaal Dam at all the carp venues is very difficult, you need a bit more structure. We actually think if you could find accommodation somewhere along the Vaal River especially in the barrage area (Vanderbijlpark) that would be your best bet for bass in the Vaal. These guys have a barge and catch some decent bass in that area, https://www.facebook.com/Bass-fishing-the-vaal-709808846104204/ Have a look at this map, https://www.google.com/maps/place/Vaal+Barrage/@-26.7596661,27.6839421,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x1e9444f6145a59e5:0x93eca695ef509e10!8m2!3d-26.764722!4d27.691667 to find some accommodation. Ok, hope that helps even though it’s probably too late now 🙁 Regards Linky Dawie 2 Feb 2020 Reply Where or close to what place on the map is Tannie Grieta se plaas Martin Ferreira 3 Feb 2020 Reply Hi Dawie, I searched all over other Vaal Dam maps and I eventually found it. I’ve now added Tannie Griet Se Plaas to our Vaal Dam map so please have a look again. I can’t confirm that it’s the correct location but it’s all I could find. Something else I learned is that it’s a club comp fishing venue only. Again I’m not sure if that’s true but it’s mentioned on another site. Hope that helps!
