Sorry for the hijack but you guys talking about how long barbel are in a dam but will a drought have a huge impact on barbel population or will the average size and population still remain the same when the drought is over and the dam is at normal levels?

Barbel are designed to go through drought. They can happily breath air, and bury themselves in mud and will stay there till there is water. They are also know to walk across land to a new water source. So theere won't be as many in the water as there where before, but there will be a lot of them left.

Its a farm dam so I think they were there from the start,there are a couple of vlei's and other dams in the area that all have barbel.

@GC I have always prefered natural baits,if carp is the predominate specie then carp heads, if kurper are in abundance then kurper fillets, if fishing near reeds with birds then day olds etc

Its one thing attracting them with oily baits but its another trying to get them to eat it...I always try at least 2 different baits and then adjust accordingly.

my 1st spring session last september we got 6 all on platties , nothing on the worms or crickets.

The very next week not even a bump on the platties but we got 4 on worms. It was the exact same stretch of water fished by boat a week apart.

Never put all your eggs in one basket

I agree with Antjar. When i fish sardine, i generally will now only fish it before december. The oil will certainly get the fish to the bait, but they will only eat it if thats the mood of the day. I found it worked well coming out of winter andd most of spring. It was often the only bait picked up. But it is a bit inconsitant. I will fish 2 rods sard's and one rod baby chicken. With in 4 hours i will than decide what bait i will use.

I agree 100% with antjar that you should try use the biggest food source in the dam. That is what will make up 90% of the cat's diet. So its only logical you give them what they are already eating. If its a slow bite than mix the bait up a bit, use a head, use a fillet. If you have no bites try a whole fish, or try it as live bait. There is always a pattern when you are at the water, its up to you to identify the pattern as quickly as you can. Thats why i have alot of one night sessions, put pressure on myself to identify the pattern, where the fish are feeding, what they are feeding on. Than its time to match bait and try different bait presentation. This approach has helped me tremendously when im fishing unknown water. You look for the subtle things and work from there.

Nobbles couldnt of put it better, skuimkop is also obsessed with "Finding the Pattern"

Find the pattern and your success will go through the roof

I've seen weirder things that the Chinese eat, 100yr-old egg for one...it's not really 100 yrs old, but they ferment eggs in lime & other ingredients, till it's green inside :puke ....then there's also the urine egg 'delicacy'....where they cook eggs in urine from young boys....& eat it. They have very interesting taste....
