A Warm South African Greeting

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Firstly.... GREAT forum!!! The people and their willingness to share their knowledge is truly spectacular. I'm glad to finally be a part of it.

My name is Scott Murray (everyone calls me Scotty). And I'm a 23 year old honours student studying in Johannesburg, South Africa.

I grew up tigerfishing with my family since I was 8 and about 2 years ago my (Zimbawean) girlfriend introduced me to bass fishing

and I have most definitely had that green monster on my back ever since. I don't have a favourite fishing style or place just yet, I'm still

too busy trying to absorb as much as I can and get out onto as many different waters as I can. Anyway, I look forward to gettining to know

all of you through the forum and hopefully one day even on the water (I have family on the West Coast).

Scotty, welcome to the Forum.

I have a client whose current and past CEOs are from South Africa. Great guys.

I have seen the Zoom baits they send to South Africa which are different colors than the ones we have in the USA. So what are your favorite plastic colors? They may be names we are not familiar.

Glad to have you with us.

Howzit Sam.

As far as plastics go we seem to very much go through phases... but never straying too far from anything resembling Watermelon or Pumpkinseed.. Weather it be Watermelon magic (rainbow coloured glitter flecks) or Pumpkinseed pepper (really hot colour at the moment). If I get some time maybe I'll post a few pics of a few plastics we get here and what we call them. We've got a local manufacturer called Trima who really seems to be on top of their game though... I'd really like to show you these if I get a chance.

What colours do you tend to fish?

Ya you're telling me... caught my PB a couple years back, weighed 13.2lbs... still not bigger than my girlfriend's though :cry3:

Great fight and acrobatics, but not much stamina
