Our team hit Roodekoppies yesterday to check out how far along the pre-spawn / spawn is and managed to catch a good number of fish cruising the edges of the Snotterbel at the dam wall, concrete reservoir and the old Northern Transvaal grounds. The first wave of cruisers have started moving into clean pockets (without algae on the bottom) and holding around scattered reeds. Here is their break down for the day that included a G-G-G-Giant 4,78kg lunker taken in a rocky pocket (known as McDonalds).
Here’s what to pack:
- Bright and Natural Zoom Flukes and McArthy Tiddlers
- Sensation SD4 Jerkbaits
- McArthy Stumpi or Yum Dinger 4” in Watermelon or Green Pumpin
- Keitech Model III Swim Jigs in 1/4oz with Fat Swing Impact / Easy Shiner or Zoom Boot Tail Fluke Trailers
