Hi guys,

a very intersting thread. Well, I can tell you my experience too, but attencion! So it is in Germany. We have other temperatures like you.

Well, I think the best barbel-month in Germany is the August. In our country we have a cold witer from January to March and so the water is very cold. Then, in April the temperatures begin to get warmer but (for example this year) we can get snow in April too. May is a good month to start with catfish fishing, because they are very hungry from the past winter months, so you can catch nice fish. The June is good and in July the temperatures are around 20° Celsius. But in August, the temperature is higher (around 22° Celsius) and the catfish (barbel) eats a lot. In this month, you can catch our friend often at the bright day too.

Best wishes,
Uwe

I've seen them hunt like that in the Vaal as well at night, hundreds of the things against the side pushing small fish tight against the bank and then catching the fish as they try and run the gauntlet.

Also heard them in bloemhof dam, a big shoal herding small fish into the shallows.

YIP MARTHIN,it is bone chilling stuff to hear a pack of cats hunt at night,the roar of the fish trying to sprint away can be overwhelming ,especially at night.

Depending on the levels let through the sluices it can very often be heard at night at "DIE HOEK" below Bloemhof damwall at night.And the water adds a few decibels to the sound as well.

^^.. Cant we be there rather than at work. lol

Deisil,if you were planning to drive through the night to go to Maphelane,then I think you got some good advice from the lady.(I think you know it)

Enjoy the weekends barbel-hunting rather.

Tight lines
