Letsibogo dam provided me with my PB at 5.45 kg!
We went there 3 years in a row, 2014, 2015 and 2016 over which time I noticed the decline in numbers and average size of bass we caught! Also The netting problem has increased dramatically!
The first two visits we stayed at Phokoje Bush Ludge outside Selebi Pikwe, which was nice but two things posed a problem -
The distance we had to travel to the dam, and
The quality of the "charged" batteries provided for use on their tinny boats

Having spoken of all the above adversaries, it is still a destination where you can improve your PB and enjoy a couple of days I of intense fishing with friends!

The last time we stayed at Hardcastle Lodge in Mmadimare situate very close to the dam.
We were provided with good charged batteries, but had to use their floating deck to get around a dam full of standing trees!

We tried taking our own boats to the dam on one of our trips but this is a nightmare at the border post and an admin headache before the time to get the paperwork done beforehand.

The roads also leave much to be desired - I do not think this has improved. It more than likely has deteriorated like most roads in the RSA and the rest of Africa!

I would like to hear from my fellow anglers that recently visited Letsibogo dam if it is still worth while to arrange a trip there!
Bass fishing is my passion!
Making my own plastic lures is my hobby!
Catching bass on the lures I make is fulfilling!

Things at Letsiboho dan have deteriorated. Things?
Quality of fish. Pressured waters, people taking fish out by the thousands, it's just nuts. We went years ago and we had a 4,95kg and a 3,83kg. Besides that we had scrappers for 4 days.
Luckily the guys had family in town so charging batteries wasnt a problem.

The dam is amazing but again - human I intervention has caused it to go down fast.
I'd still love to go back.

Buffelspoort bank and float tubing tips and spots 8 months 3 days ago #402

Hi admin

Great, I am an avid social bass fisherman, running a small fishing and adventure taking guests on guided tiger and bass fishing trips just outside our borders into Swaziland, Botswana and Mozambique.

I like to from time to time try out new local venues fishing without guests, etc...

I use a float tube when I can otherwise I bank angle.
