Potato Bass caught and released at Karridene

Potato Bass caught and released at Karridene

I was in Danwood Fishing Tackle in Tongaat yesterday, where I came across an amazing fishing story. Young Calen Moodley made this excellent catch whilst fishing with his uncle Annand, down at Karridene this week.

Calen cast his bait just next to some rocks a bit off the shore, and when he brought up the slack, found the reel wouldn’t turn anymore! So, on his own, he started walking backwards to get tension when his rod started bucking about. He continued his backward march until eventually his uncle arrived and helped Calen beach this absolutely beautiful ¬†and rare – Potato Bass.

The fish was released healthily back into the shorebreak where it swam away with a big smile!
