Moe Bakhas and Wilson carry the monster
Ashraf Bakhas of Sivaya Motors in Randfontein caught this whopper of a barbel on the 18 September 2014
. He says he used a carp head and instead of taking the line in deep, he cast the line in very near to the shoreline.  Within 10 minutes the bait got picked up and a 45 minute battle took place.  Ashraf was fishing with a 14 ft rod fitted with a magnum centre pin reel. "It was like catching something big off the surf", said Bhakas about his experience.
