Hi All,

After the failure of the last visit, Saturday again we made a visit to the dam.

The water level was same, the col is little better than the last visit,but there was not much action.

We had casted all over the place, but no luck. Suddenly Chavie got a strike and landed this beauty. Its around 5.000 kgs.

Shimano AX 8 ft rod with Shimano slade reel. Spiderwire braid 20 lb with meps aglia # 4 silver .

Hope you all enjoyed the weekend.

regards

getting ready for the show

Fantastic fish! Great going guys and keep them coming.

Mobeen! 20lb PowerPro in moss green is the way to go. If the area is very weedy then move up to 30lb. That's what I use and it has served me well. The only other tip I can offer is that after every bite (not just hook up and land) cut off the 4/5 inches of line and retie your lure. I have lost a lot of good fish by being lazy. Sol/Murrel have very sharp teeth and braid gets frayed on them fast.

Hi Mobeen,

From my experience, If there is a rock sorroundings mono or the floro carbon is the best.If its a sandy area braid is the best even .

Braid line is best for long casting and can be accurate.Ken's advise is too perfect that after every landing I will see the line for 2 to 3 metres whether its damaged in the end or inbetween. Also I will check whether the hooks have any bend.

regards

Now that's a nice murrel, how nice it is to see some hold a fish without shoving it into the camera to make it look larger than it really is :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol:
