Ek gaan vir so 5 dae voor die Bloemhof Bonanza De hoek toe want ek hoor daar swem 30 kilo plus Tekkie bekke daar rond wat die mense se lyn aanhoudend afbreek. Ek dink Enigma het ook al met so outjie daar te doen gekry. Hopenlik kan ek die kans kry om vas te maak met so snor daar. Ek gaan hulle verseker target so hulle moet maar net saam werk. lol 

Dit sal ook goeie oefening wees vir die Bonanza.

Both the above statements are very true, one of ''Droomvanger''s methods,when fishing dams, is to park his boat on the bank and then fish for cats on foot in very very shallow water,even during daytime. Bernard jy kan maar so bietjie inkleur hier wanneer jy dit raak lees.

very interesting!!! i always thought deeper was better when it came to big barbel, thanks for the heads up, going to change the way i fish for them in future

In my humble opinion you would make a mistake and I think what the guys wanted to say is that it is a myth that you only catch the Monsters in deep water. You do catch Monster barbel in deep water AND you do catch Monster barbel in shollow water. So rather adapt the way you target barbel by learing how to read the conditions and make a calculated decision where to target them on the day rather than change the way you target them.

I usually try to put some baits out DEEP and some in the shallows and while I wait for the reels to scream there tits off I'll 'play' with Artlure. So if there is a snor in that water, well, then I'm targeting him. lol

this past weeken no cat was caught closer than 150m from the side.. had to drop it at 200 - 250 m and the pick ups were very fast... ivee been putting my cat lines very deep most of the times as this is how i personally have success fishing for them

well i guess fishing from the bank i dont really get the luxury of fishing more than 100m out anyway. Most of where we fish on the vaal dam is very shallow on the sides but has also been very productive with 8~16kg fish.

What i meant to say in my last post is that instead of just focussing on distance and water depth, i'll put one or 2 rods in close as well

At the end of the day there is no general rule... You have to go with what you feel confident with......
I have caught fish in 20 meters or water at Bloemhof and also within 50cm of water on the same day....Granted both were from a boat...
Fish with what makes you confident..
