So after YEARS I have finally broken my bloemhof curse.
I have been going to Bloemhof once a year now for a couple of years and was never able to break my PB of 15kg but it finally happened 3 times last week.
First was a 15.6 then a 16.4 and then finally this beauty of 18.6kg.
Now I have the 20kg in my sight.
Was caught 13:00 at Daan se Plek just under bloemhof dam with half a carp head on a circle hook.
Must say I will never again use normal J hooks for barbel.
I lost 1 fish on a double j hook trace but caught it again 2 days later with my trace still in its mouth. But the circle's did not miss a single strike and was perfectly in the corner of the mouth every time.
Please show me your Circle Hook presentation (again?)
