Hi

I am going out to Bronkhorspruitdam this weekend with my boat to go and target some Barbel at one of the Dams inlets, their is a lot of Reeds so I asume it would be a good place to target Barbel, Wonder witch inlet would be the best the one near Clover hill or at the old Regering plaas side.
Jess.
PS got some nice size paltties today.

I don't think Bronkies has big cats biggest I have seen is around 8kgs....
Platties or carp heads I believe would be your best option

Hi

No we fished on Saterday until about 14:30 then we left we fished from the boat. We fished near the yacht club and then moved to Baya Dam size right on the end next to the reeds, there we got a few barbel but lost more than we could land because of the grass, there is some monsters that swim around that piece of water.....but will go and try next time...also got 2 carps 1-2 kg size..
