Im booked up for a weekend in Holland (22 & 23 of May), staying at Port Zeelande so hopefully I might get to catch a Dutch bass if Im lucky (Im not too sure about the tides but it was the only weekend I had left free this year - so "who dares wins" and all that)

Anyways hope to fish both days around the Oosterschelde :) (any tips appreciated)

cheers

Thomas - it would be a 5.5 hour drive for you! - maybe a little too far ? (Ive only got a 4.5 hour drive but Im staying down there)

Harold says that the tide is very good (lets hope the water warms a bit as its only about 3.5 at the moment)

Harold did mention a potential "mini meetup" (Harolds not 100% if he can fish that weekend yet) - what do the Dutch boys think??

Id be happy to meet up ;)

Hello Guys,

Harold mentioned it to me to that there were plans for a sort of "start of the bass season" meeting. I think it's a great idea only i can't tell yet if i'm available the entire weekend. But 1 day will certainly work for me.

Hi Tom,

I think it will be great! Always really nice to meet up with other bass addicts :wink:

When the day comes i will be glad to make some pictures and post a report of the day to share with the rest.

The watertemp. still needs to double to start some serious bass fishing...(offcourse this is for the spots where i fish) Hope that the upcoming weeks will be very warm so the shore watertemp will rise up quickly :-D

btw this weekend the last session for the zander before the closed season and then slowly start with the prep's so ill be ready when the bass arrive :evil:

Well I will have the type of kit we use in the Uk with me - so maybe a bit different to some of the stuff you guys use but interesting I guess. Also got a couple of Tenyru rods (in case you guys didnt get to try one yet)

Plenty of time for the weather to warm things up a bit ;)

Hi Nico,

I love to join you in the first place guys.
Iff we succeed to catch any bass i don,t know, but the tide is perfect, lets hope the bass will be there aswell.

Water temp. is rising now (7 C) an normaly half may the conditions most be fine.
Before 22/23 may i,am try to catch the fist bass of 2010, you can bet on that.
The Oosterschelde is very changeable, there are very good day,s, the nexst day it,s noting at all.

But, i will do my best to locate the best spots for the meetup.
Iff there,s bass, we give it a proper go to catch some.
But anyway, iff there comes nothing between i,am in !
