    CATEGORY OF CLAIM - Freshwater (stillwater)


    SPECIES - Common Carp


    LENGTH - 1 metre


    WEIGHT - 7.72Kg


    LOCATION - A private dam in the Durbanville Hills

    TIME - 16h30


    ROD, REEL, LINE, BAIT USED - 5# Greys Missionary, slow sinking Cortland 444 6# wt fwrd line. Fly- self tied newly christened 'Hot Spot Scud' 

    COMMENTS ON CATCH - South Easter was pumping and I saw some splashy rises in the windward corner. Casting straight out over some tall reeds with the wind in my face with my 5 weight Greys Missionary was impossible, so I waded in about 5 metres from the corner and did a short side cast to where I saw the rises, gave the fly a 3 second countdown and proceeded to figure eight the fly back to me with a slow twitch/pause retrieve. On my third twitch there was a solid resistance and my line started tracing an arc towards the deep water. I was left in no doubt that this was a big fish and since I had no landing net with me, I had many anxious moments trying to lip the fish. Every time I got him within arms reach and tried to grab his lip, he would shake his head like a bulldog, slip from my grasp and speed off in the opposite direction again. I was by myself with nobody to help me, so it was quite a thing. I eventually got him up alongside me when he was a bit more tired out and managed to get my hands under him to pick him up. I have another photo which I managed to take while playing the fish where his head broke the surface, and the fly is visible in his mouth for those of you who don't believe me that I caught him on fly. That is not all though, I caught 3 more before last light, all on the same fly fished blindly.

    We caught about 23 fish in a four hour period. All ranging from 5kg - 10kg. This was the biggest of the day and put up an awesome fight. Took over 20mins to land the fish. All fish were "tapped" for at CLOSE range! Great fun!!

    Hi All,

     

    I have taken over the freshwater catch records.

    You will see I have deleted most of the Junk (most of it my own postings) I have also deleted all the fish that are smaller than the current record for that particular species.

    There were very nice pictures from the likes of itsarap - please move these to the freshwater section and start a thread as it would be sad to see them gone permanatly.:wfish

    I will delete this post in the near future too.

    When you see how few records there actually are you peeps need to start submitting records please.

    Thanks

    Hi Ryan.

    Any chance of some form of reference / summary table, showing species, method of fishing, etc, all the stuff guys and girls are listing in their submissions?
    This will summarize the status of the challenge and help us post our pics straight to this thread or alternatively to the bragging thread of almost a winner pics.

    Possibly a category / subcategory for records in table form: freshwater fly, fw papgooi, fw artlure, saltwater etc.
    This thread is great.

    My 2c.

    Hey Sonny,

    Yellow fish are endangered because of the stupid fish you are holding in your little right hand.

    Trophy,

    I did not enjoy your reply.

    Did basslover not mean that the Sharp Tooth Cat Fish had a 'sweet tooth' for Yellows too? And looking at the size of that beast, he could have gobbled a lot of Yellows.

    And as for attacking bass "... the stupid fish ..." in general, I have to caution you on this path.

    Strike One Mr. Trophy.

    Nice fish Trophy. I would estimate that fish closer to 20 kg than 15 kg. I would say +/-18 kg. Pity you did not weigh it. Must have been great fun on that old Nite Hawk. To this day I believe that nothing beats the sound of a run on a Nite Hawk.

    PS: I've had days at the Vaal Dam where I caught only small yellows (whilst trying for muddies or carp) and I've found the yellow fish heads to work better for the barbel as they are softer. Damage done: Vaal dam minus 3 small yellows. These days I believe that the grass carp "problem" in Vaal Dam is not such a "problem" if you are targeting monster barbel...

    I caught a 4kilo barbel the other day that latched onto a small "grassie" I caught on a little spinning rod. What a surprise!

    I will have my 20 kilo before end of summer...

    Fishton, I'll take that strike! But I think we both know that the 'humble' bass is the most destructive invasive fish in our waterways. As a bass man you would, I'm sure, argue that the Carp does the most damage?

    Trophy,

    I have read so much about this fish, that fish, this alien species is ok, that alien species isn't etc etc etc.  It becomes a little fuzzy eventually with all these theories and so called 'research'.

    But when it comes to "most damage", that's us humans ... we will stuff anything up, be it in the name of 'conservation', sport or harvesting.

    It's sold under the Sunlite brand in Zim. Made with lard and bicarb with a blue dye. Comes out of the pack rock hard. You have to mould it until it gets soft and then mould it around the hook.

    Works better for Vundu than ANY bait. That lunker was one of three huge fish hooked that night and the only one landed!

    he he he he ja  i got a big fright when i saw it come up the first time, i thought it was a small barbel and then when it lifted again my brother in law was standing next to me and we both screamed like little girls:)

     

    there were a couple of nervous moments when my boet in law went to net it because he's never netted a fish before (it was his first time fly fishing) and he missed the first few attempts!

     

    the only blind thing was that she wasn't released, if you look carefully at the pic she's got a bit of the top of her tail missing and she just wouldn't revive. when we cut her open we realised she was completely egg bound and had exhausted herself in the fight. that's the one blind thing about hen fish in still water dams is that they don't release their eggs and die. i've only been fly fishing for a few months so i only found this out afterwards otherwise we could have squeezed the eggs out and she would have revived ok. at least next time i know...

    COMMENTS- Lucky catch, was prowling the banks for smallies when spotted two fish in the shallows made a cast and one flashed at the lure. On second cast the fish took the stick bait. Very aggressive for Tench but I think the trout pattern must have provoked it.

    Yip, I caught a total of 15 that day on various flies. The fly that produced very well was the mullberry fly because along the bank was a mullberry tree and as the mullberries fell in the water they were taken by yellows.

    That stretch of river all the way past Kloofsicht to Bergsig has awesome fly fishing potential, dry flies late afternoon is great fun. The fly for that is the bat wing mayfly, much bigger mayfly pattern than the usuals. Bergsig has a great stretch of river, much wider than brookewood

    Fight duration was approximately half an hour, the fish took just after 11:AM, I had it at the boat three times, at the boat it did not run away but rather went for the bottom to cut me off. The water was about 20 meters deep there and a current of 9 knots! Water is dark brown.
