The NEMBWE is found in South Africa. It's coloration is olive to bright green with a deep olive band along the midbody.
This predatory bream resembles the bass in appearance and fighting ability. When hooked, Nembwe often take to the air with numerous jumps in an attempt to free itself of the hook.
Standard bass lures such as spinnerbaits, spoons, rapalas, and soft plastics to name a few will catch the Nembwe.
According to the IGFA, the World Record Nembwe was caught by Donald Bousfield on September 2007 on the Zambezi River. The Nembwe weighed 7lbs 15oz.
