Going after the big fish

11 September 2019 | Sports

A total of 22 anglers and 16 boats participated in the fifth Bank Windhoek National Angling Competition that took place at Oanob Dam last Saturday.
Hosted by the Namibia Bass Angling Association (NBAA), the tournament recorded a total of 34 fish that made it to the scale. Richard Grant was the top angler for the day, as he managed to catch five fish. Willie van der Merwe scooped four fish which earned him a silver medal, while Andrew Hall and his three fish, went home as the bronze medallist. Lourens Delport caught the biggest fish, weighing in at 2.141kg.
Three junior anglers also took part in the competition. Of these, Aje Engelbrecht won the junior division with a 1.402 kilogram fish.
“This is a special time of the year for bass fishing, as the bigger fish move into the shallows for the spawn,” said NBAA’s Public Relations Officer, Andrew Hall. “Weather conditions seemed favourable with spring at our doorstep. However, it was a bit windy during certain periods of the day with the ripple on the water being quite challenging for site fishing. Still, anglers enjoyed themselves.”
“Bank Windhoek is proud to be a partner in the development of smaller sports codes in Namibia. Our journey with the NBAA stretches over many years and has proved to be beneficial for the all involved,” said Bank Windhoek’s PR Manager, André le Roux.
Next on the NBAA’s calendar is the Junior Development Weekend and the Bank Windhoek National Championships scheduled to take place towards the beginning and the end of October 2019, respectively.
