    Default Monster Baber

    Ek het hierdie Baber gevang die 4de September 2010 naby Parys> Die skaal het net tot 23kg gegaan maar ek skat hom so +-25kg. Dit is by ver die grootste baber wat ek op vlieg gevang het> Weet iemand wat is die rekord op vlieg?

    Wow - that is a monster! Must have been a bag of fun to try and keep that one out of the sticks! Nice work.

    Nice fish! The record is well into the 30kg's from what I recall. I'm sure Mr. Babich will have more info on that.

    Awesome fish...What did you catch it on and what was the breaking strain of your tippet?

    The record for the biggest cat belongs to Terry at just short of 19kg.That is a very nice fish,but you would have to belong to the Game fish accosiation to record the catch.The oficial record for a bait caught one was 36.5kg,but that might have changed.Catfish Joe has caught what is said to be the biggest one in many years,just below Augrabies.I believe it was around 50kg.I myself have only managed a 20kg on fly so far.Congrats on a great catch.
