Good Moring’

What’s “Cat’ing”
Ha-Ha stupid gesture
Okay I was wondering have anybody ever caught a cat bigger than 15+ at Tago’ Accept for Zarro the owner of the farm? And if so what bait did you use? and how far did you take the bait?

:fst: One thing I'm sure of is that Tago's got Big Cats for what it's worth' the owner of the farm just on the opposite side of our farm, Zorro caught a 36kg cat but nevetheless' the cat I caught (Which was my PB) was bitten by another cat most probably during mating season bit the cat I caught' and the bite marks are huge' Anyway the Friday I caught a 15,5kg cat and sat night I met this one' 300m fish-head' 100lb braid-line...It took me 30min. I also caught 6 carps' biggest 3.5kg all fishing at the margin' and my girlfriend caught 2 grass carps one @3.6kg other at 4kg at 50m....in total we caught about 40fish for the weekend' but with all due respect to all the other places on the Vaal, but TAGO is the place to be...
