Thank you for all the comments

Took me over 25mins to land and im still so fascinated how tired the fish gets after the fight.

Caught it on 7lb line.

Went to Bloemhof this pass week end stayed at River Lodge, threw out a muddie head got a run in 10mins, set the hook and then the fish went and laid still.

I went and kept on pulling and snapped the line. Still learning when to strike and when to leave until there is movement from the fish.

Landed up with a small barbel of a 1kg after that
