Michael's Bass Charters

Settle in for some epic freshwater action as you explore the Rust de Winter Dam with ‘Michael’s Bass Charters’! Located on the Elands River, the Dam is home to some of the best top-water action around. Anglers who prefer light tackle spinning or fly fishing are in for an epic time with Captain Michael Hüsgen, a self-proclaimed fishing junkie.

Hop aboard his 18’ Thunderbird bass boat, ideal for a pair of anglers looking for a productive day on the water. This lightweight vessel gets you where you need to go fast. There’s plenty of storage for your gear and a big platform for you to cast from.

Rust de Winter Dam is known for its Largemouth Bass population and slow rolling spinnerbaits is the best way to catch some. You’ll also go after wildly fun-to-catch Tigerfish! Just remember, Capt. Michael’s trips are strictly catch and release. There’s tons of wildlife to take in too. The Dam is home to a big crocodile and hippo population and over 400 bird species!

Capt. Michael provides all of the gear you need for an effective day of spinning. Fly fishing is only available on the single person trip and you do need to bring your own gear. He’ll provide bottled water, soft drinks, sandwiches, and snacks so you can stay out all day long. Just bring along sun cream and a hat and you’re good to go!

Experience freshwater fishing in a one-of-a-kind setting with Michael’s Bass Charters!

Sobre el Captain

Michael Hüsgen
Pretoria, Provincia de Gauteng, Sudáfrica
Hello everyone, my name is Michael Hüsgen and I’ve been fishing since I was 3 years old. Born in Pretoria East, fishing has always been in my blood and I started competing at age 8, making it onto the Junior Gauteng team from 2006-2016. I used to watch the Bassmaster Elite Series with my father and uncle every Saturday morning and from the first episode, I knew what my calling in life was. Now, I’m a fishing junkie who tries to go fishing as often as I can and catch as many species as I can!
