So what is the biggest you have caught whilst buddy casting, cranking, popping etc?

This excludes a calling rod, trolliing and dipping...

What you say?

BUMP!!!!!

Come on guys, where are you all?

My biggest was 6kg on popper, 5.5kg on buddy casting.

I think Ryan probably has the most bragging rights with Mona Lisa of about 22kgs on a Salmo Slider.

What i want to try and establish is whether it is an effective way to get the big boys...

I am currently fishing a small dam where there are easily 20kg cats, but how to get them is the question.

I don't think the big boys waste their energy eating bird poop....

Two guys casting at a spot over and over, i always say try and keep it within a 50cm circle. You will use slow sinking lures in this case.

The barbel come and look whats falling in the water and grab what falls next.

the one guy casts and about 2 seconds after the other guy, let your lure sink for about 5 sec depending water depth and bring it in and cast on the same spot again. Repeat atleast 15 times

9.2kg is glad nie te vrot nie, maar dit blyk dat jy die groteres op die dip en klop metode kry.

Maar wat is dit wat jy nodig het om daai 20kg oubaas te kry om sy kop te lig?

Ag nee DWB, sukkel jy nou weer om iets te vang nou probeer jy uitvind wat werk :-D

Regte tyd op die regte plek met die regte kunsaas. Die kuns is om daar te kom, ek se mos altyd hoe meer mens visvang hoe gelukkiger word mens ;-)

Die groot en rerige groot babers word al hoe skaarser, maar hulle is nog daar. Jy moet maar jou vroulike instink inspan en werk vir hulle, daar's nie ander raad nie.

Onthou bietjie daai grotes het nie verniet so groot geword nie, en dis nie van roekeloos aan enige jan rap en sy maat se hoeke byt nie.




Laat my nou wonder of jy enige jan rap en sy maat is... :-D

100% African, the idea of buddy casting is not to confuse the fish. If two guys work the same spot side by side then when the fish comes up it doesn't know which way the food is, it usually leaves after a short while and both anglers miss the opportunity. Buddy casting lures the fish to one spot and chances are good eiter one of the anglers can get it, like DWB indicated.

Mooi man, ek het gewonder waar die Venters heen verdwyn het.

So sal ons amper se dat dit meer die exception as die norm is om babers bo 10kg op die casting metode te kry?

I lost my D.A.M Nature Hunter Crank on Monday (it was my all time favourite lure). I got broken off by a BUS, even though I'm using 25lb braid. Got myself a Rapala Glidin Rap today, so gonna try it after work, I hope it works as well...

This is the nature hunter. Mine was fire tiger. Shame that they don't make them anymore!
