If i may add my 2c worth - the first barbel I started catching on lure, back in JBay, were on saltwater style (pre-rigged) paddletails. All I did was cast blind and lift the rod tip and wind in the slack. Worked well for me :)

Aqua, I have tried that before especially when it is fishing deeper water and you are standing on an elevation, but I have not had much luck and quite possible due to me not trying hard enough... That said, now might be an ideal time of the year since the cats are just waking up and a bit sluggish.

I prefer, when fishing from the bank which is 99% of the time, to do a constant retrieve so that you can feel the vibrations in the tail and also that you can feel the bottom. I have had more luck this way I suppose

So I had a gap and fished for a couple of hours each on Saturday and Sunday late afternoon. I managed to land 8 cats in total and the all slammmed my trusty paddletails. Biggest was +-8kg (unfortunately no photo) and then all others smaller fish. Nicest thing about artlure is you can travel very light and cover a lot of water.

Man dit was n jammerte want die babers was willer as die wildtuin! Ek kan nie eers vir jou se hoeveel ek gemis het nie! Ek sal die Sondag weer gaan draai as jy dit kan maak? Ongelukkig is Saterdag uit met n kiddies party :?

Wat het geword van die dae waar die ouers net die kinders kon af laai?! ;)

Gaan die naweek na 'n doop in Rustenburg, but who knows dalk vroeg terug op Sondag en dan 'n draaitjie by die baberdam ... mens kan maar net hoop.
