Jeez boet Nice pics - keep them comming.
YEah that looks like Spawn fins - but question - is it only one fin that has damage?
Reason I ask is I fished Arabie dam last year and I saw a barbel that was hooked and "Fighting" for it's life being latched on by another on one of it's pectoral fins - very hard to see in your photie but it looks like fairly fresh blood on that fin.
Carp start spawning at 19
Barbel in my experince require 21 - hence them usually spawning after the carp - this is my humble experince.
I am taking big time notes this year.
Carp require 17 to come on to artlue nicely........
Jeez bud it looks like you are serious about this challenge
