My one major regret from last year’s three week sojourn to Southern Africa was that I didn’t get a chance to fish for bass. I know that seems odd because even though they’re spread all over the globe bass seem to be the quintessentially American sportfish and I live in their home territory. Nevertheless, I always want to be on the forefront of both emerging fisheries and fisheries that are peaking and countries like Botswana and Mozambique seem primed to explode as destinations for the well-heeled bass traveler.
At Anglers Inn El Salto, the guides fully expect to land every one of the many fish you’ll catch. I don’t really roll like that, so my general rule is to land all fish caught on single-hooked lures myself, unless they are net-worthy, and to leave the vast majority of fish caught on treble hooked lures to them.
