According to ryan...(he's the only one that's seen the real mona lisa), the orange cats are much bigger vs length than the vaal ones, so 17 should be no problems

Sorry to drop in on everyone's conversation, but why is it a bad thing that Yellowfish heads were used? Or is that a stupid question? I would imagine that because they're indigenous, it is frowned upon by some when they're used as bait. Are Yellowfish threatened in the Orange system, or in general for that matter? What about using a kurper head? They are also indigenous, no?

Yellowfish are highly endagered in SOuth Africa and there are many bodies doing hard work to try and preserve the current populations - Even if there are healthy populations in the lower Orange this is a species that does not breed easily and we are losing the battle against saving them...That's why the reaction...

Definitely 15-18kg.

Big head but as is with many of the orange river cats a long thin body. If you caught it in the Vaal where they feast on Grassies it would probably be so fat that it would go 20+

As for the Yellow's. It's very easy to forget the predicament they are in when you fish there. Bait / Fly / Lure and you catch 10-15 yellows per single carp or muddy and all around 1-3kg.

Sometimes they're so prolific they are all you get to catch for bait because nothing else gets a chance to get to the bait (Large and Smallmouth)
