Ok guys,

I decided to make it official.

I will as from today take the journey of getting a barble on lure.

I will keep you updated as to my progress and success.

This has been going on for a while now, but i'll start trying harder.

Any tips or suggestions will be gladly accepted.

I will be in hot pursuit as my time and the weather permits.

LETS GO HUNTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:wfish

Roodeplaat is full up with barbel and they are regularly taken on a Mepps Black Fury (silver blade) No2 or 3.
Best is in the shallows on the Nature reserve side of the dam off a boat using a slowish retrieve just keeping the spinner off the bottom. This will net you bass and snorre.

OK, so i took off early yesterday and took my good buddy Llewellyn out for his last voyage before he returns to Bloemfontein today. We went to Bonamanzi Dam in Paulpietersburg which is a mere 50km drive from me.
This dam has got good sized bass, barbel, blue kurper and a few others. We got on my little dinghy and headed straight across the dam to get to a new spot. The barbel was turning like make, so out comes the red headed salmo hornet 4. I try and put the lure down a meter behind them the moment they turn. Cast past one and bring it in and BAM! I'm on, but seeing that i never caught barbel in this way before i wasn't sure what it was, as my lure was well past where the barbel was turning. It was fighting deep and shook its head once or twice. I honestly thought it was a Blue, but hey, no bass can box like that. So i fight hard, not giving any line, winch it up to the boat to have a good look, and its a nice sized snorre of about 1m long. I heads for the deep again..... and fish off........ hook bent open..... BUT hey, i atleast had a hook up!!!!
Llewellyn then proceeded to get a nice blue on spinner.

Will put up the photo during the course of the day.

HAPPY HUNTING

Happy Fishing

Just a quick update, we have had rain and rain and some more rain for the last two weeks, and lots of cold weather with it. The quest still continues.
