    Other boat we used was JC's (my son's pal) Splashbass with 70 Mercury.......nice boat, but we just once again saw you MUST keep your boat as light as possible, yet also able to plane fast. We towed this with my pal's Hilux 2,8 DC 4X4, Auto, and even that Lux got hot under the collar, towing the boat up those looooooooooong inclines.
    The Lux also struggled a wee bit launching and retrieving that heavier boat in the mud.......not a trainsmash, but still.

    Fishing was good, we took home around 56 or so in the 3 days we were there, with 2 boats.

    And they taste delicious.

    Not very big, biggest ones around 1,4kg, smallest around 800grams or so. We obviously threw back the little ones.

    Couple Piccies........

    My pal and I went to Katse Wall the one day, just to how him what's what. Katse Lodge is closed, they are busy renovating and prepping it for all the contractors etc etc who will be staying there to build the big dam above Mohale.......as 10/12 year Project.

    Good riddance......my opinion.

    Olive the old Patrol was faultless as expected, not even the brakes overheated or shuddered.

    Consumption was 4,9 km/litre......that's with 5 people, HEAVILY laden boat with fuel food etc etc, and inside lots of water/booze/food. Not bad, I think. She did 1st/2nd gear for a looooooong time at 3000+ RPM.

    Anyway, thanks for watching the Pics, hope you enjoy!!

    Ek wil net noem rakende daai pic van myself:

    1) Ek is so klein bietjie geset, maar

    1.1) Daai t shirt het rerig baie styf gesit en my kurwes dalk te veel beklemtoon,
    1.2) Daai sweetpakbroekie is so 18 jaar oud, al baie uitgerek (eintlik op sy max), so ek moes hom BAIE styf intrek oor my magie,
    1.3) Ek het so paar Castle Stouts in die kop afgegooi, wat dalk my so bietjie winderiger as gewoonlik laat lyk
    1.4) Daai lang oorhemp, ook nou al 'n collectors item, laat my korter lyk as wat ek rerig is

    2) Dankie vir u belengstelling

    If I remember when the dam was filling up we had to dive and remove the plug on the 4m dia pipe think it was at that dam not the other one but hell that water was so cold, and they wanted the plug remover once it was about 6m underwater, did not know why they did not do it in the dry

    I really enjoyed browsing through the brochure and your post-used to visit the Oxbow lodge and area many years ago-will have to make a plan soon
