Hi all. Does anyone have any tips for bass in the dam. Do they get a chance to spawn in there with all the carp? I realize guys are quite protective over their spots so if anyone doesn’t want to post online could you please private message me.
Thanks. Barry

Fishing bigger dams like kwaggas and Clan are a different story to these small ponds. With there being so many carp in Rutter I was just wondering if they get a chance with all the carp making there own nests. I also don’t know anyone who fishes rutter so making use of Sealine. Something people are not really doing anymore.

I haven't fished it recently but like most other places, it's best days seem to be behind it. Used to produce good fish, not easily caught but some of the fattest bass I've ever seen. Since the carp herpes problem and (so I'm told) illegal netting, the bass seem to have disappeared. Doubtless they'll be back at some point. If you do go, keep your lures as close to cover as possible as they hide from the cormorants - probably 1 in 5 bass I caught had cormorant strike wounds. Also use a heavy leader, 'coral' on the reed stems is very abrasive. I've been cut off in a second by barbel there with .45mm line.
