I need some advice on where and how to catch barbel on artlure at Boskop dam. I don't have a boat so I do my fishing wading through the shallows. I've managed to catch carp, bass, kurper ext, but the barbell has been eluding me. Any tips out there from the people who know how?

I have caught them at Boskop using bass worms (mosquito Hawks) dragged along the top of the water grass. Scum frogs also work really well. Watch for the barbel turning in the grass and drop your frog on them. You need a strong rod and braid to wrestle them out of the weeds though.
