Hey guys

I see the carpaholics has a 30 lb + club so I thought we might as well have a 15 kg + club for the guys that like fishing for BFC (Yes its actually BIG FARKING CATS) AND because we are South African and not British, we measure in KG and not LB... So post em pics here and if you want, and are not as stingy with the location of the catch like the speciman guys, give us as much detail as you like...

Seeing that my PB is only 14kg... I wont be able to post a pic yet but are looking forward to your posts... Kom aan SKUIMKOP!!

Oi, last minute change of plan, die rivier se water het omtrent 70 mm gestyg en die stroom is heeltemal te sterk.

Gaan dam toe die naweek, ek sit en besluit nog watter oord. Het reeds hoenderharte gekoop asook petmince om saam met Ecovite vleis-voerballe te maak vir naby die kant.

Dis darem maar 'n mooi kat daai Skuimkop aka. Celeb ;)

Trust me it will be lots of fun, try to get accomodation on one of the river banks that run off from the dam, catch your carp during the day, once it starts to cool down abit, throw in those heads and hold tight.

haha Ya its head was huge, but he/she was skinny, think if I caught it late night on its midnight snack, it would have been 2-3kg more...

it was on our River rafting weekend on the Orange, we passed lots of "perfect" eddies and overhanging trees...there are way bigger fish there! we swam in the eddie(were I caught it) just 3 hours before we started fishing...

one day Ill be back...

Hier is Hennie Moller wat ons genooi het Oranje toe se 50 Lbs/22.6 kg. Die outjie het Hennie opgedonn#r met die inbring slag en hy was poot uit en dis hoekom hy sit want hy skep nog asem hier. hahaha

Hy het natuurlik al baie keer en baie groter as die gevang. Sy wêreld rekord is natuurlik 42.18 kg op 16 lbs/8 kg lyn. Verstaan julle hoekom ek sê die man maak uit. Ek's 'n bleddie rookie teenoor hom. lol

Lekker dikke daai Diesel. Well done.

Ek weet nie of julle al opgelet het nie maar baie van Bloemhof se groot babers het 'n maerder maag teenoor ander damme se babers van dieselfde grote. Hul koppe is egter lekker groot. Kan iemand dit dalk verduidelik en wat sou dit beteken vir ander damme waar hul pense so vet is?

ek dink dit is a bier pens

 

 

It could be due to the abundance of food in the dam and the area  that is travelled to feed .

Just my opinion.

 

However it is a very good observation.

IMHO Most ''river-cats'' seem to have leaner belly's.It makes their heads look bigger in relation to their bodies(which they probably are). I stand to be totally corrected but it may have to do with the amount of energy spent moving from one place to the next.Swimming in currents may burn more energy,be it for cruising or especially hunting prey,they must use/burn more energy than their still-water counterparts.

Upside is off-course that they seem to jump onto art-lures more agressively in flowing water,(snooze,you lose and your prey is gone downstream)

Ditto to you Ryan- the Tiger::S),,,,,,,,, ''oom'' nogals.

@Unlimited,sorry if this borders on highjacking,but just briefly.I read somewhere that in a controlled experiment where two groups of Cats were left in huge tanks ,with one tank being fed,, and the other left to ''filter-feed'' ""organisms''etc from the gravel/mud bottom(as they apparently do in winter when ''hibernating") ,there was no significant difference in their weight gains over a period of time (cant remember how long,but pretty sure the clever okes who did it got it right).

The conclusion was that they feed/survive just as efficient,lying in a dried out muddy-pan, ,than when swimming freely.Merely guessing here but bloodworms and all those other funny flick-flacking creatures you find in your fishpond after holidays,etc springs to mind.

My guess would be that the ones lying in the mud/gravel would have bigger belly's and be less streamlined than their more actively swimming counterparts,especially over extended periods of time.

Some carp with better genes are round/oval and normally weigh more than the more streamlined ones.

Both the above statements are very true, one of ''Droomvanger''s methods,when fishing dams, is to park his boat on the bank and then fish for cats on foot in very very shallow water,even during daytime. Bernard jy kan maar so bietjie inkleur hier wanneer jy dit raak lees.

Die Hoek is aan die gang. Ek het nog nooit sleg babers gevang daar nie. Daai jaar het ons tussen 3 van ons seeker by die honderd babers gevang met die gewig tussen 7kg en die 16kg was die grootste. Baie van 13,14kg. Was laas jaar weer daar toe omtrent so 20 babers gevang met die grootste 10kg. Beslis die mooite werd om n trip daar te maak en laas jaar het ons nog R100 n aand betaal vir die stand met krag. Ek hou daarvan om tussen stand 17 en 28 te staan maar enige stand is ok daar

Ek gaan vir so 5 dae voor die Bloemhof Bonanza De hoek toe want ek hoor daar swem 30 kilo plus Tekkie bekke daar rond wat die mense se lyn aanhoudend afbreek. Ek dink Enigma het ook al met so outjie daar te doen gekry. Hopenlik kan ek die kans kry om vas te maak met so snor daar. Ek gaan hulle verseker target so hulle moet maar net saam werk. lol 

Dit sal ook goeie oefening wees vir die Bonanza.

Both the above statements are very true, one of ''Droomvanger''s methods,when fishing dams, is to park his boat on the bank and then fish for cats on foot in very very shallow water,even during daytime. Bernard jy kan maar so bietjie inkleur hier wanneer jy dit raak lees.

very interesting!!! i always thought deeper was better when it came to big barbel, thanks for the heads up, going to change the way i fish for them in future

In my humble opinion you would make a mistake and I think what the guys wanted to say is that it is a myth that you only catch the Monsters in deep water. You do catch Monster barbel in deep water AND you do catch Monster barbel in shollow water. So rather adapt the way you target barbel by learing how to read the conditions and make a calculated decision where to target them on the day rather than change the way you target them.

I usually try to put some baits out DEEP and some in the shallows and while I wait for the reels to scream there tits off I'll 'play' with Artlure. So if there is a snor in that water, well, then I'm targeting him. lol

this past weeken no cat was caught closer than 150m from the side.. had to drop it at 200 - 250 m and the pick ups were very fast... ivee been putting my cat lines very deep most of the times as this is how i personally have success fishing for them

well i guess fishing from the bank i dont really get the luxury of fishing more than 100m out anyway. Most of where we fish on the vaal dam is very shallow on the sides but has also been very productive with 8~16kg fish.

What i meant to say in my last post is that instead of just focussing on distance and water depth, i'll put one or 2 rods in close as well

At the end of the day there is no general rule... You have to go with what you feel confident with......
I have caught fish in 20 meters or water at Bloemhof and also within 50cm of water on the same day....Granted both were from a boat...
Fish with what makes you confident..

 As ek nou 'n skat moet waag sou ek sê 23 kg deur na sy kop grote en lengte van sy lyf te kyk maar hy is seker meer na die 21 kg klas as ek in ag neem dat hy heelwaarskynlik iewers in die Vrystaat/Gauteng area gevang is en dat die dam baie leeg is (dus minder kos as in somer) en dat dit boonop winter is as ek kyk hoe warm jy aangetrek is op die foto.

Ek dink jys redelik in die kol, ekt self gedink die vis is in die omgewing van 22kg want ekt een jaar op 'n VS proef 'n 17kg gevang en hy was aansienlik kleiner. Dit was September naby Bloemfontein. Ek het daardie betrokke dag 8 babers gevang met 'n totale gewig van +/- 100kg. Die week daarna was dit klubkompetisie, toe vang niemand 'n baber nie.

Skuimpie... die *** is die kleiner 10kg bliksems tel die groot aase ook op. My broer het des n hele karplyf van so kg op gesit, hyt daai aand seker 6 runs gehad maar nie 1 hook up nie... maak nie saak hoe hy die 2 hoeke positioneer nie... maar ja, dis wat die sport so lekker maak, dis mos nie lekker om elke keer te wen nie, ek verloor eerder n run voor die frikken ding iewers gaan vas hak.

Dit gebeur gereeld met my by Koppies as ek groot aas uit sit.

Ek kan nou niks belowe nie want ek vergeet nou al op die laaste drie komps om 'n Karp te hou om vir julle 'n mooi review op te stel van hoe ek die groot baits oprig want ek werk die komp se punte uit (seketaris van die club) en is dan so besig en in so gejaag dat as ek weer my bearings kry is al die vis weer vrygelaat.

I only catch with platanas. I put the bait just out of a stream about 20m from the side wich is nogals deep. I always use two hooks with a plattie on each one. I think it makes more vibrasion in the water. On almost every outing i go on i land atleast one ir two of above 10kgs.

In die modder rivier wat in die dam in vloei is daar regtig baie groot snorre. Ek hou daarvan om so langs die rivier se gate af te stap en n platie of twee onder elke boom of riet te gooi. Partykeer as jy baie stil is dan kom hulle in die honderde op om lug te skep. As jy nog daar is in die aand sit jy al jou ligte af dan klink dit soos rotse wat in die water val as hulle jag!

its overall a shallow venue... a kano or anything would be the easiest, who knows maybe the fish will come into the shallower warmer water... i used normal super cast bom, with almond, honey and banana doughs, red floaties and red almond supreme tiger nuts... the deep water at the river side is about 120m - 150m from the side..

aqua via may be best suited if you dont have a kano or bait boat... but ja, there where we sat the water was waist deep at about 15m from the side

Julle weet natuurlik dat almal wat hier op die post 'n foto van 'n baber geplaas het kwalifiseer om aan SACSS te behoort. Hier is 'n uitreksel uit die oewer hengelaar van Julie op bl 20:

"The Bank Angler Exclusive Barbel Club.

All readers are welcome to join this exclusive club- it’s free! To qualify for SILVER membership you have to catch a barbel of at least 15 kg, and to qualify for GOLD membership you must catch a barbell of 20 kg or more. We’re keeping the rules as simple as possible. There is no official membership application form – just make sure you comply with the rules.

RULES:

*Only Silver and Gold categories available – no separate categories for seniors, ladies, or juniors (any way not atpresent).
*Only applications per e-mail are accepted.
E-mail your application to: editor@thebankangler.com , marked “barbel”.
* Your application must include your full names, age, postal address, telephone numbers and length.
* Another person must ratify your application – we require his/her full names and contact details.
* A clear photo of your fish as well as the scale on which it was weighed. Send us JPEG attachments.
* The weight, length and girth measurements, plus the date and place of the catch are required.
* You may name the tackle and bait that was used."


Ek het ook klaar aansoek gedoen vir my sertifikaat en as ek hom kry sal ek dit hier vir julle ook post.

I agree, depends on the venue, & sometimes even the time of year....at times your fish head will just lie there the whole night & the cats will have an appetite for platties. I've read somewhere that towards the end of summer, they build up fat reserves & that's when they're more likely to go for bigger baits.....like fish heads instead of platties....

Bass also do this, metabolism slows down over winter and the fish dont feed as often, but need to keep up fat reserves to help fight cold, i believe.:fbash i could be wrong. But what i noticed last year was as the water temp increase so did activity, obvious i know. But the bait that the cats favoured over everything was Sardines, the smell and oil put out by the sard was a very good attractant for these hungry feeding cats. But now sard is out and fish fillet is in. I love barbel ,working out the bait patterns and depths is very addictive.
Sorry for slight thread high jack.

Nou kan ek jul ook join. Het laas donderdag die baber van 17,73kg by Bloemhof gevang op my roepstok. Ek het in 3 dae 42 babers op roep gevang, almal met 'n enkele Lume Pumkinseed. Verder het ek so 5 babers oor 10kg gevang en 2 ander van 13-14kg. My eerste dag op die dam het ek sommer 21 so gevang. Sjoe dit was groot pret!

Hey guys

I see the carpaholics has a 30 lb + club so I thought we might as well have a 15 kg + club for the guys that like fishing for BFC (Yes its actually BIG FARKING CATS) AND because we are South African and not British, we measure in KG and not LB... So post em pics here and if you want, and are not as stingy with the location of the catch like the speciman guys, give us as much detail as you like...

Seeing that my PB is only 14kg... I wont be able to post a pic yet but are looking forward to your posts... Kom aan SKUIMKOP!!


We post in Lb cos it looks bigger..:hyst::hyst::hyst::hyst::hyst:

Thanks Nobbles, I must say the 15kg+ barbel were scarce during this trip. This one of mine was the biggest caught between 7 guys that were all calling for 3 days. Dankie Riaan, dit was vet pret om die babers een na die ander te vang met my roepstok, hul het my 'n paar keer byna van my voete afgetrek met die vatslag. 'n Hele paar keer het ek gevoel hoe hul verby my swem soos hul 'wake' my bene tref in die kniediepte water, dan laat sak ek net my pumkin en maak reg vir die chaos wat gaan los trek

Are there no 15kg+ snorre in the Western Cape? By now the Breede must be getting close to producing some huge fish. I have heard of 10kg+ fish, and an 8kg caught on mudprawn in front of Mudlark during a winter flood some years back.

Well done Shaun. Wys ook net weer dat babers op amper enige iets vleiserig sal byt. Dis die eerste keer wat ek hoor dat hulle byt op Springbok lewer, lol.

Jacques daar behoort teoreties babers oor die 20 kilo's (even oor die 30 kilo's) in die Breede te wees aangesien hulle in 1962 of 64 in die Breede introduced was. Die enigste 'spanner in die wheel works' is egter dat klein Bull Sharks 'n groot treat vir die babers kan wees as hulle nog klein is en leef dus nie lank genoeg om Monsters te word nie. Dalk **** op in die Breede kan jy nog monsters kry. Gaan lees ook die post: http://www.sealine.co.za/view_topic.php?id=52752&forum_id=64&highlight=oh+snap

Ander plekke in die Wes Kaap waar jy babers oor die 15 kilo's sal kry is Voelvlei buite Malmesbury en in die Berg rivier sisteem by boere se plase in die omgewing van Malmesbury tot Piketberg. Daar is ook glo babers by die 20 kilo's in Magic Forrest se boonste dam maar ek kon dit nog nie met 'bewyse' bevestig nie. Rumors doen ook die ronde dat daar 'n groot baber (20 kilo's) in Groenvlei rond swem. Weereens kon ek dit ook nog nie bevestig het nie.

Wilge River was a blank! only decent fish that came out were two 4kg+ carp, got a 1kg cat on a plattie at about 3am in the morning, was not impressed to say the least!.

will try the spot in spring again!, its "leeu koud" out in the free state already!.

Has anybody been to Blaauwpan dam in Kempton park?.

Nope, Caught it from the boat and it had to stay overnight in the keep net, probably lost some weight! At least got a seventh place overall.

But, the brother and me caught about 10 over 15KG's! best trip of my life.

Dankie mense!!

Dis tussen Parys en Potch, basies net buite potch naby wawielpark. Nice plekkie, meer vir die rof en grof campers, daar is 2 of 3 "rondavels" wat hulle uitverhuur , daar is ablusie blokke wat ok is dalk net nie genoeg vir al die stands nie.

Die oewer is ook biekie grof, sukkel om ragtig te gooi tensy jy 8-10 ft stokke het, baie vas haak plek, kanse is goed jy gaan af breuk as jy nie n' vis uitbring nie, ons het baie stroppe verloor maar ons het ook baie gevang, so +-30 karps en so 10 babers. 

As jy net konsentreur op babers is dit die plek om te wees, daar is baie en grotes ook, ek het n' bielie verloor, het ouens op n' bootjie gesien met lures vang en hulle het 6-12 kg babers uitgetrek teen n' helse tempo.

Fishing for carp I luckily hooked into this 18kg monster, got even more lucky to land him on my light 8 foot drop shot set up with a tiny carp hoot. Was caught at the Vaal Dam on 31-12-2013.

Die is my Snor van 16Kg gevang met Carp kop by Krugersdrift in Vrystaat.

My Barber Strop behels twee groot hoeke weet nie hoe groot nie, seker so groot soos my duim. Een wat slide haak ek deur die lippe van die Carp kop van onder af en die ander hoek van bo af deur altwee lippe. Het groot nommer vier slide sinker op gehad met so paar beads net om die knope te beskerm. Was 29kg lyn van my see stok.

Thank you Antjar,

Tackle used:
Rod: 9ft XXH Ugly Stik (2pc)
Reel: Penn Battle 6000 (Spinning)
Line: 40lb Jerry Brown (Braid)
Leader: .60 Kingfisher High Abrasion
Hook: 12/0 Z-Steel Circle (Mustad)

Haven't had a hiding on this set-up yet, but then we have not caught any monsters yet.... (one of these days...)

I think if we had more muddies we would have had more cats to show. For some reason we have been struggling to catch them for the past two trips and not through lack of trying either.. Plenty of small-mouth yellows (we return them immediately), but no muddies...

Thats a really nice set-up for barbel ! Love those ugly stiks , got 7 of them and counting LoL . I have also been catching a lot of juvenile yellows at my spot on the Vaal over the last year, good to see that the system is healthy.

Day olds seems to be doing the trick for me lately but whole fish is still the best to target the really big fish.

I can easily believe it if you look at the lenght of the cat, the width of the head and the thickness of it's barbels. Well done. Caught at your place?

Im off to the Orange again in November for my 20 Kg plus. I was at Bloemhof in October a few years ago and the weather just didn't play along, however Enigma has had some awesome sessions there in late September. He did a report on both trips about 2012/2013 I think and got some monster fish.

Dankie Riaan!

Dink jy dat einde Oktober 'n goeie tyd sou wees vir Bloemhof(Die Hoek)om 'n 20kg+ meneer te vang?

Sal graag ook die ander manne se insette waardeer.

Lekker dag!

Chris, that's still one of the fattest bellies I've seen on a catfish. Pity your GoPro's battery went flat...

If it wasn't for that women I would not catch fish. She is the reason I get big cats. She delivers the positivity. And a mean boat lunch. She isn't scared to tear some thumbs lifting fish. And she can shoot a bow like a machine. I am a blessed man. Very blessed.

Some good catches on lure too. I hooked a 13kg cat on a spinnerbait and 4kg line in Cinderella dam in Boksburg many years ago. Gave me one heck of a fight in my float tube. Thought I had a monster bass at first lol

Hi daar almal en geluk met jul mooivangste! Ek het die 18.4kg snorre op 'n klein kurpertjie gevang. Dit was in baie vlak, sterk lopende water net agter die keerwal op die agtergrond van die foto gevang. So ja, groot aas en diep, stil water nie altyd noodsaaklik nie, ne! ;)

Hi thanks guys, hopefully we'll manage to land the elusive 20 somethings here at Parys this summer! @Eugene hahaha, thanks. I have been living here for almost six years now and had always struggled to land Largemouths... And then on a wet, cold day in December last year, I managed to land two in consecutive fishing days. The water level had also risen a lot during that weekend. It was that typical weather where one would normally just stay in bed (rainy and very cold) but my friend Jacques, my dad and I decided not to let a little rain stop us. We zipped up our raincoats and made peace with the fact that we'd probably have a cold for the rest of our holiday. I know now afterwards, catching again and again and again in this cooler wet weather that this is just what the big large mouths want! On that particular day we caught many smallmouths over 4kgs, an 8kg Largemouth and then also a couple of smaller catfish on crab and also on fly. The next day I landed This beauty (Avatar) right after a heavy thunderstorm - We had to use our canoes as shelter, hahaha! Astoundingly the fish didn't take my bait hard like I'm used to when rigged with crab. We thought at first that it was a small cat chewing on it. The indicator just rose and then fell, rose and fell, so I decided to strike on the next rise of the indicator. THEN IT WAS CHAOS!!!  I had to jump into my canoe after it had stripped my reel naked within seconds and then I also had to fight the fish for maybe 45 minutes because I had no landing net with me on board as I was taken downstream more than 500m away from the guys and I wasn't properly geared for a fish that size. Eventually I managed to work my way to bank. By then the guys had caught up with me. We landed the fish, weighed all 10,7kg of it, took a couple of photies, I kissed the misses a good farewell and set her free to grow even bigger! I must tell you that it was definitely worth the effort. An unforgettable and memorable story. I'm just glad my dad was there to see the fish, because he was getting tired of all my fisherman stories!! ::tight:

Hel, dit is great.

Let op hoe groot en breed die koppe is invergelyking met die res van lyf. Is dit 'n indikasie dat hulle hoofsaaklik op lewendige vis jag maak...? Ek neem aan dat die babers se "tande" groter en skerper sal wees as die in die Vaaldam agv hulle dieet..?

Wat dink julle manne..?

Awesome fish there Armand, congrats.

@IWyk, that photo of your son is awesome, I can't wait to take my son fishing when he's old enough.

@Roland, I know this is a catfish thread, but I have to comment one more time on that beautiful yellow, not only is it a really awesome photo, but a really cool story too! Congrats on that one, hopefully I'll get around to doing an Orange River trip in the near future and get a yellow myself.

EugeneC, thanks yes it is a privilege to be able to share this passion with your family. This was 01H00 in the morning and he is in his jammies!

This season we will definitely be targeting some big cats again.

Armand, pragtige vis baie geluk.

Alex123, die baber is eerstens n roofvis en dan tweedens n aasvis, hulle maak jag op lewende vis en ander organismes en dan sal hulle ook aas vreet.

Ek dink die groot bree kop babers wat gewoonlik korter is(en meer weeg) vroulik is en die langer dunner kop babers manlik is. Dit is maar net wat ek dink.

Hulle is baie aktiewe roofvis en dit is ook hoekom hulle met kunsaas so geredelik gevang kan word.

Let op hoe groot en breed die koppe is invergelyking met die res van lyf. Is dit 'n indikasie dat hulle hoofsaaklik op lewendige vis jag maak...? Ek neem aan dat die babers se "tande" groter en skerper sal wees as die in die Vaaldam agv hulle dieet..?

Wat dink julle manne..?

Jong ja, ek het nou nog nie van julle babers gevang nie so ek kan nie rerig vergelyk nie, maar laat sy kop breed en tande skerp is kan ek van getuig! As hy jou byt voel dit soos n vice grip!

Armand, dit word hanskoene genoem.... ons "sagte ouens" hier in Gauteng gebruik dit met groot sukses...lol

Iwyk, dankie vir die verduideliking dit maak sin. Ek dink tog hulle dieet en omgewing het 'n invloed op hulle bou. Ek kyk maar net na van die fotos wat die manne post. Die babers in die Vaal sisteem (bv.vanaf Grootdraai dam tot voor Bloemhof dam) se koppe is nie so breed soos die in die Oranje/Vaal sisteem onderkant Bloemhof en dan natuurlik in die Noord-Kaap nie. Ek dink die rede is omdat die babers in die Oranje/Vaal sisteem (Bloemhof en Noord-Kaap) meer jag maak op lewendige aas (karp en gras karp) aangesien daar groot getalle daarvan beskikbaar is..?

Dalk kan van die ander baber-kenners ook hulle opinies ook gee..?

Ek reken hoe meer die vis in stroom leef, hoe smaller is die lyf in verhouding met die kop.

Ek gebruik maar altyd as ek kan moddervis koppe. Het al n heel duif ook gebruik.

Ek dink ook daar vas n voud met die skaal.

Hier is een wat ek op die selfde dag as die 2 grootes gevang het en met die  selde skaal geweeg het .

Die vis het 12.3kg geweeg en hy lyk klyner as die een wat met die skaal geweeg was wat onder verdenking was......

Baber gevang op privaat grond, nie geweeg nie. Skat gewig?
Nadat ons sada pumpkinseed verloor het op groot vis wat ons afgebreek het moes ons aas gebruik, gevang op viskoppie!
Rysmiere het die hele vaalrivier aan die lewe gebring, vis was orals! Die lee vaal het dit ook maklik gemaak om rond te beweeg en hulle te soek.

Another Picture of the Big Cat I used a Muddy 1/2 for Bait head side removed the gill cover and all the scales from the bait kept the inside and also sliced the bait on the sides adding the Spray of Blood will have to take a picture of the Blood its from Big Cat Africa if I recall.

Het die papa-beer gevang naby "Ciljee" by die vaaldam.
het net n lip grip skaal gehad wat net tot 23 kon weeg, maar soos ek die vis opgetel het het ons hom ge-juge en hy was beslis (ongelukkig) nie 24 nie.Needless to say, ek het n skaal gaan koop die volgende week wat hulle nou kan weeg.

Aas was n klein karp koppie (so 1 kg karp gewees), gewoonlik vat ek 1-2 kg karpe (geskil / geslag en verwoes, sonder skubbe en kiewe) uit diepwater toe om te probeer vir die groot outjie, en het al 100de gevang tussen 10-18_kg, maar kon net nie oor die 20 kom nie. sal n foto post dan sal julle my glo van dat ek se baie tussen 10-18.

Die dag het ons het op die laaste oomblik besluit om te gaan visvang en het baie laat en in die donker daar aan gekom.

Na n rukkie se karp vang, het ek besluit dat dit te koud is en ek eerder gaan wegkruip vir die koue in die Van en dus eerder die stokke (6ft meduim action pap stokkies met night hawks op ::gas: ) gaan gebruik om babers te vang.

Ek het in die donker in ge-cast kon nie verder as 40-50 meter gewees het nie. water diepte dus so 1-2 meter maksumum.

Was n epic fight!!! daar is regtig geen stop aan daai groote visse nie, en as dit nie by die vaaldam was nie, sou ek hom verloor het, want daar is geen haak plekke naby daar nie, net baie van niks vir baie ver ;)

Dit was n baie lekker adrinilin rush, en eers n rukkie na die tyd besef dat my kakebeen seer is van hoe ek koud gekry het en gebyt het op my tande van either adrinilin rush en die enamel van my tande af gevries het.

Dit was regtig n seen om hom te kon vang. min manne kan se dat hulle so n ou bul gevang het op n nighthawk, en seer vingers gehad het as bewyse.

Wat ek wel vir die ander manne (die klub waar ek was waar ons nog net probeer het om oor 20 kg's te kom) kan se is dat daar wel so iets bestaan soos n nie sterk genoeg visstok nie. ek het altyd gese dit is bog, maar nou is ek die eerste om te se dan jou gereedskap moet groot genoeg wees.

Weet enige iemand of daar al outjies bo 25 uit die vaaldam uit gekom het? want waarheen gaan ek nou om n 25_kg te gaan teiken?

PS, hy swem weer daar iewers sodat ek hom weer kan probeer vang, soos enige baber oor 10_kg behoort hanteer te word.

Dagse manne! Ek het weer so 2 naweeke trug by die rivier n draai loop maak! Ek was vasbeslote om my PB te verbeter en het gehoop om die 20kg merk verby te steek! Het gou n paar kurpers gevang en die baber lyne gegooi met heel kurper koppe.
Op die ou end kon ek my pb verbeter. Al is dit nou net met 300g..
Daar het 5 babers oor die 10 kg uit gekom..

Het hom laasnaweek gevang.

Water was bitterkoud en baie helder. Nogal bekommerd oor al die nuwe gras/mos in die rivier. Defnitief baie meer as laas jaar die tyd. Gaan week eerste week van Oktober vang.

Hi Krugel,
Thank you feels good to finally be part of the club, the fish was caught this past Sunday Morning 04/09/16 just before sunrise, i put the large carp head at about 6pm the night before and had 2 runs during the night from smaller fish before this one came along. What a thrill and i definitely look forward to catching more of these monsters this season.

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.

Great TimJan!

Ek gebruik ook geen ander hoeke behalwe sirkel hoeke nie...hoekom wil 'n mens nou sukkel..? Ek is bly om te sien daar is nog babers in daardie stuk van die rivier naby die wal. Hulle was maar skaars die afgelope paar jaar of hulle was nie so honger nie...

Hoe is die geriewe by "Daan se Plek"? Sal graag my vrou en kinders wil saam neem...

Baie geluk met jou vangste.

Alex dit is baie nice.

Dit was ook my eerste keer daar en volgende keer vat ek my ouers ook saam as hulle hier is.

Ons was in huis no2 en daar was n kamer met 2 single beds en die ander kamer het 2 bunk beds in.

Dit is mooi skoon en geen klagtes nie. Daar is n TV(nooit aangesit nie) sitkamer en n kombuis.
Net die yskas is n bietjie klein dit is net n normale bar yskas met n klein vries hokkie.

Die visvang was baie lekker mooi karps gevang tot 6kg en dan lekker babers en dit deur die koue vront. Wees net gewaarsku die otters is wild en kom kuier elke aand as jy aas wil hou vir die volgende dag.

Baie dankie TimJan,

Ek was verlede jaar vroeg in Oktober daar vir drie volle dae en toe kon ek nie eers 'n baber "koop" nie.... Ek was by "Die Hoek" maar saam met vriende. Is daar 'n swembad en hoe styl is die wal..? Jammer vir al die vrae..

Koste per aand?

Dankie.

Daar is n splash pool maar toe ons nou daar was was hy vuil maar dit was nou wel die begin van die seisoen.

Die wal is soos in die pic 100% gelyk dit is so 2m bo die watervlak. daar is trappe na onder waar daar nog n concrete "stoep" is reg teen die water.

Kostes was R150 pppd.

Ek beplan alklaar weer my volgende trip.

My "hooklink" was so 70cm lank gewees op n 3 way swiwel en my sinker was n 4oz op n 10lb lyn sodat as die baber vat breek die lyn van die sinker en kannie vas sit nie. Ek het met n aasboot gedrop.

Die halwe kop was net deur die lippe gehaak.

Ek het so 10m van die oorkant gevang tusssen boom stompe. Ek moes elke baber deur hulle fight.
