Bass Angling Association runs out of water

Eleven members of the Namibia Bass Angling Association (NBAA) gathered at Oanob Dam on the weekend of 27 and 28 April 2019 in an attempt to qualify for the international 2020 Bass Nation Championship in the United States. Only two anglers per country are allowed to compete in this annual tournament. The results of various competitions in previous months are also taken into account. Determining factors for good results are accurate throwing, patience, knowing the area and the behaviour of the fish, the choice of fishing tackle and artificial lures, as well as a little bit of luck. 

The Namibia Bass Angling Association has about 60 members. The only places where they can indulge in their hobbies are Oanob Dam near Rehoboth and Von Bach Dam near Okahandja. According to Max Pieper, the President of the Namibia Federation for Freshwater Anglers (NFFA), largemouth bass was officially released in the Friedenau, Oanob and Von Bach dams soon after their completion in order to curb the numbers especially of those species of fish which affect the water quality by stirring up the bottom of a lake when foraging for food. 

Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) is a freshwater game fish in the sunfish family. Originally from the south of the United States, this species has been introduced to reservoirs all over the world.
