Thanks guy's, yes it was an awesome fish. Caught in the lower Vaal river, Attached here is another one from the same trip. This one, below weighed 17.2 kg.

The electronic Carp scale we used could not weigh my son's fish. Pitty we could not get the exact weight but, awesome fight, awesome fish and definately his PB!

Both where caught on half ox heart with chicken guts strapped on. Using a large single circle hook, attached to the bait with a dacron bridle.

He used a Alvey C655 reel with a one way drag. 24kg main line, 36kg leader.

The small boat in the back ground is what we use to drop the baits.

Will take some pic's of the baits next time we go out and post them.

Basically, take a complete ox-heart, split it in two(top to bottom). Using a bait needle pull some dacron(80-120 lb) through the top side of the heart stiching in and out a few times to ensure it will not tear out. Leave a tag end 100mm outside while sticthing the other end.

Once done then take the two loose pieces of dacron and knot them together(granny knot).

Using a 12/0 to 14/0 circle hook, make a loop onto itself on the dacron and put the circle hooks point through the loop and pull tight.

Now strap on some chicken guts, using ghost cotton or elastic cotton to keep it in place.(Inside of the cut heart)

Put the whole thing in a plastic bag to ensure you dont get this juice all over the boat when you go and drop the bait.

In the river I use half bricks as weights on a breakaway rig. Otherwise this big bait may get washed downstream.

Hope this helps. Tight lines!

Ons het die by nr. 3 gevang. Heel aan die ander kant in die stroom is daar n diep gat.(Teen die oorkantste wal). Kyk maar net daar is gewoonlik n dooie boom naby die gat. Dan het ons ook al by nr. 19(dink dis die nommer), dis die een reguit aan met die pad, waar die rivier regs draai. Die diep water is weer aan die ander kant en bietjie links. Het 4x4 nodig om tot onder te ry op die sand strandjie.

Beste is maar om n klein bootjie te he met n elektriese motortjie en dan kan mens die bodem gaan toets met n lang stok om te voel waag is die gate en wat is die struktuur van die bodem.

Dan ry ons ook maar in die dag met die bootjie rond en soek die babers wat opkom of rondbeweeg. Dan gooi ons vir hulle aas aan floats van die bootjie af. Ons "pop" die dan en die babers gryp die aas en die sports begin!

Hoop dit help, groete.
