Anyone knows what the carps are diong in the vaaldam?

Are they sponing? Whats the muddies doing? I have not fished there for a while so would like to know what i can expect. Want to go next week. So any info will be great.



Hi Ruds

We were at Mihanzi for the long weekend and the fishing was good got alot of carp but all were small (1kg AVG) . Also two nice muddies came out and alot of small muddies.

The guys who could cast deeper generally caught the better fish. FX and cinnamon flavours worked well with the odd strong flavour when the tempo dropped. The dam is very low though.
