The Namibian Bass Angling Association (NBAA) held the annual Corporate Bass Challenge at S. von Bach Dam last weekend. This year the event was sponsored by Old Mutual and 9 corporate teams (2 participants each) tried their hand at the sport of bass angling.
Each Team was accompanied, skippered and taught the ins-and-outs by a member if the NBAA Namibian National Team. The other corporate teams included Nam Tyre, A.N. Construction, KPMG, Panther Express, Mining and Maintenance Namibia, Atlantic Refrigeration, Bank Windhoek, Surf & Turf Service Centre and Varkenelli Customs.

The weekend saw the teams rise early, boats were launched at a cold and windy waterside and a brief safety and rules meeting was held, to familiarize all with the regulations under which the NBAA participates. Despite the cold-frontal conditions, which put a slight damper on the angling results, all teams still gave it their all and some big fish and big bags (5 fish per bag) were caught, weighed and released alive as per NBAA catch-and-release angling rules.
Team Maxxis (Nam Tyre) – Participants: Fernando Abrantes and Ricardo Abrantes (skippered by Lourens Delport) walked away with the biggest bag prize, with a bag of 12.2kg’s.
The biggest bass of the day was caught by Rajesh Rajgopal (Team Bass Hunters – KPMG) with a weight of 3.795 kg’s.
