Hennie Moller's record SABAF and IGFA stands at 41.2kg, not sure which tackle class he claimed the 41.2kg on. He caught it on a small margin rod and not the all tackle class he set for the big ones.

I had the pics on my other laptop that was unfortunately stolen last weekend in a Burglary.

Have seen pics of 60kg+ fish caught in Hennie's areas but not registered or claimed.

I'll get him to post a few pic's

The only info I have is that barbel exceeds the IGFA record by 7kg's! It's not a claimed or official record either. Caught in the Oranje River, Rigged 4kg carp as hook bait.

The angler is over 6ft 4 inch, so that gives you an idea of the size barbel!

Hennie just happened to pop round to the shop today as I have to do 2 of his rods for him.

I am lucky to have built and or customised most of his rods for Catfishing, as long as 8 years ago.

I asked him to either post a pic of the 195cm monster or to email it to me so I can post it.

Hi Ek plaas vir jul fotos van Babers vanaf 15 kg tot 42.1 kg en die was 1,92 meter lank gevang in die laer oranje
Hier staan ons met die babers.
Die 42.1 kg baber was gevang op 9kg breekrag en aas was ???????????? net ek weet

Enigma maak of verbeter my stokke waarmee ek hulle vang en mag ek hierdie geleentheid gebruik en net se dat hy defnitief die beste stokke maak en ook aan te pas vir Groot Babers.
Dankie vir die beste kwaliteit stokke. Jul kan gerus in kontak kom om dieselfde stokke te laat maak.


Die aas was n karp van so 4kg se kop na onder skuins gesny en bietjie gekap met n klip om sodoende die reuk te versprei in die water en ek het die groot baber so 10 meter van die kant gevang waar hulle gewoontlik wei en jag maak om allerhande kleiner visspesies tussen ou bome en riete wat in die water staan.
 Groot babers vang jy in riviere teen die kant. Wees net baaaaie stil.

Lekker aand aan almal
Hennie

:::S

Hallo ek het uiteindelik die beter fotos gekry van die babers wat ek met julle wil deel.
Ek het darem nou n beter kamera gekry want voorheen het ek maar mik en druk gebruik om visse af te neem, maar dis tog so belangrik om goeie kamera te he om fotos te neem Ek het omtrent nooit my visse afgeneem nie want ek het nooit gedink dis belangrik nie maar soos ek Sealine gelees het het ek vinnig agtergekom hoe belangrik dit is en ook om rekords te registreer soek hulle goeie fotos
Hierdie fotos hopelik ilustreer die grote van die babers beter  die ouens wat saam met my was het ook met die babers geposeer.

Lekker aand aan almal
Hennie

:::SHi i make use of Awa Shima Monster quest and Berkley 7ft reel shimano speedmaster 6 and nml shimano penn reel and line very very important Perline Hi abrasion or nml Perline  very very tough and strong (this i use most of the times)

Hope this help  if there are other questions feel free to ask

It's a rock and surf line. You can use any good abrasion resistant line in diameters of 0.50-0.60 with 0.80 and 1mm leaders and hook lines

You all know that my 32kg Cat was caught on 14lb line and my previous PB 18kg as well. I am hearing more and more that the monsters pick up light line, is this not telling us something?

Ek weet nie wat die gewig was nie maar aas was n viskoppie en klein visstok en perline gebruik
Ek dink dis nogal n mooi vangs so in die winter so weereens die babers byt tog in die winter ook net nie so aktief soos in die somer nie.

Hi there all how is every one doing?
I caught one of the biggest catfish in the witbank dam area at maanlig on a 1-1 action Night hawk reel and 14 rod in winter time the total weight was 19.8 kg and my reel was rigged with 10 pnd trilene for carps.

If there is any one here that would like to go catch BIG cats pm me in springs there is a dam called Murry Park and the biggest i know that came from there was a 34.5 kg barbel.

That place is the ultimate hunting ground for BIG Barbel.

Hi Tjopsie

You have me very intrigued , Ive tried to find some more info on the Alexandra Dam and from what I can find it is officially closed ?

My other concern is that it is a very small piece of water in a highly populated area , I looked at it on google earth http://www.fishingdestinations.co.za/letsgofish/details.php?id=96

Looking at the map there dont appear to be any rivers that flow into/out of the dam , so it looks like a closed system. It is a tiny dam compared to Vaal,Bloemhof,Roodeplaat,Bronkies etc

Is the dam being netted? this is usually the 1st thing that happens at a negletted water as a source of food and income .

I would be very surprized if this dam even holds a 15KG fish , it just doesnt look fit size,area wise , isnt being fed by another large source of water etc along with the other factors that Ive mentioned .A good source of food is another obstacle , what are the monsters feeding on?

Im not here to fight , just to debate : ) I would love to hear your thoughts and anyone else that has some input

Kind regards anthony

Murry park a you saw it on google earth is fed by 6 other dams flowing into each other it concists of a small stream / river running down into the sappi dam and from there it runs into the blesbok spruit area food for them well......we saw a barbel swallow a whole (bleshoender) alive from the side where we wher fishing i can promise you the dam has NEVER been netted as we locals tend to chase away the unwanted sources because that is our passion to fish there the deepest point in that dam is 28 foot there are alot of reeds in the sides with abundance of lully pads for the bass and barbel.

some of the locals cuun boys catch them from the side with rod and reel but hardly get them out as they tend to break tge lines.

you are more than welcome to join me any time there as i am only a stone throw away from the dam i dfish the dam atleast 2 a week for bass and barbel and that has been going on for the past 6 years and had the very best of luck by my side.
