The first comp of the season was held below the Bloemhof dam wall at De Hoek resort. The long weekend in honour of Braai day, 24th of September, was probably a month before spawning season, so fishing was relatively slow for Bloemhof, but some beauties were caught. The competition rules had changed for this event, as here at Bloemhof only one thing counts, and that is size!

The results were as follows:

Corneil Jacob - 15kg monster

Stanton Daniel - 13kg beauty

Brian Jacob - 11kg and 10kg

Derick Korff - 9kg on half a flying wasp

Elmero Korff - 6kg

JJ Horn - 6kg

We will have to get back here, the best barbel spot we had ever seen!
