We Found them in AFRICA! – Team USA BASS

Bass Fishing in Africa – The official practice for the Black Bass World Championship is over. We searched the Vaal River for two days and found some great fishing spots. If we can put together a good game plan for this fishing tournament, we can hopefully win the GOLD Medal for the USA.

Team USA BASS consist of 8 of the top Professional Bass Anglers in the United State and we will be competing again 12 other countries. Scott Martin, David Dudley, Scott Canterbury Mark Rose, James Watson, Fred Roumbanis, Lionel Botha and David Frittz.

    It’s so cool to watch you guys in my home country

  2. Clinton Raubenheimer on July 15, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    The "catfish" that the guys were hooking up on, we call them barbel, and there is an abundance in most (if not all )rivers and dams throughout the country and easily grow to 40 pounds plus.
    They are strong swimmers but not very energetic like the bass. They have a smooth but tough slimy skin (no scales) and are NOT poisonous or electric.
    They do however have teeth that resemble course sand paper which wont cut but can feel creepy when picking them up. One would normally grab them on the lower jaw as if you were pulling a fist with the jaw in your palm. (four fingers in the mouth thumb on the outer jaw).

    As for the bass in South Africa. There aren’t many big bass especially not in the Vaal.
    I’m sure Scott would confirm that the numbers are okay, but on average you will get bass ranging between a pound to about 2 pounds maybe 2 and a half pounds.
    If you lucky, you’ll get something in the 4 pound range.
    I am about an hours drive from the Vaal River and would rather fish a smaller local compound closer to home, than drive out for the day.

    That said, I hope the stay in SA was pleasant and you got to see first hand that we are not the racist barbarians the world makes us out to be.
    I trust you tried some of our favorite foods like boereworse and biltong to name a few?

  3. Brandon Gregory on July 15, 2020 at 8:20 pm

    Good luck Scott

  4. Bruce Millard on July 15, 2020 at 8:21 pm

  6. bruh moment on July 15, 2020 at 8:23 pm

  7. Gabriel Capivara on July 15, 2020 at 8:25 pm

  8. Jonathyn Polanco on July 15, 2020 at 8:25 pm

    That edit was hotter than a pair of jumper cables in the back of Scott’s boat.

  15. The Hub on July 15, 2020 at 8:34 pm

    You the man brandon.πŸ‘

  16. Jan Kolacia on July 15, 2020 at 8:34 pm

    Lmfao some of those guys are so supprised when they lose a fish. Man you lost it cuz you drag them on top of the water and just try to haul them in. It really would not be fun being a pro fisherman. The most fun thing about fishing is the fight and none of these guys ever get one cuz they just reel as fast as possible every fish. So sad to see man

  17. Lydia Hough on July 15, 2020 at 8:34 pm

    Where in the vaal river did you caught it??

  18. Bevan Lourens on July 15, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    Our catfish aren’t electric and those are infact african catfish
    I have a buddy that caught a 53kg one of those
    We call them barbell

  19. Justin Tyler Fish on July 15, 2020 at 8:35 pm

  22. BenjaminVokkerr on July 15, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    I try for 7 years with plastics and spinnerbaits in South Africa and all that works is cranks…

  23. TheMannChannel on July 15, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    Are these bass wild? If so I didn’t know there were large mouth bass in Africa. They almost look like spotted bass

  24. Weekend Pirate on July 15, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    A good day bass fishing is a good day bass fishing no matter where you are. Lol

  25. Cmoney Dom on July 15, 2020 at 8:48 pm

  27. Lourens Joubert on July 15, 2020 at 8:49 pm

    hey Scott. I have been watching you guys for years now and you are my fishing icons. However seeing you all fishing my home water was extremely disappointing.

    Pity you did not get to figure it out

    You guys caught more unintended catfish in two days than I caught in ten years.

  28. Guchy Man on July 15, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Lmfao @ 17:04 im American!

  29. Hank Xiong on July 15, 2020 at 8:50 pm

  31. herro dair on July 15, 2020 at 8:55 pm

  32. just_rogan on July 15, 2020 at 8:56 pm

  33. Scott Brits on July 15, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    I’m from south Africa booooi

  34. golftooter on July 15, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    FYI, flushable does not mean biodegradable! It just means it won’t plug up the plumbing. If you have a septic system, you will be pumping it out soon if you flush those often.
