Some information on Kurper Fishing:
Kurpers prefer warmer water and will mostly be caught during the warm summer months at water temperatures of 18C and warmer. Kurpers are omnivores but they prefer to eat meat. They will mostly be found near places where they can easily get to their food such as near old trees and bushes, slow moving rivers and near rocks that are sticking out of the water.
Kurpers will mainly be caught in the early mornings and during the late afternoons. Fishing at night will bring you no results. They like slow moving water such as where a small river flows into a dam. When the conditions are right kurpers can be found in big schools in open water.
Kurpers feed from the bottom all the way to the surface. The basic technique is to do kurper fishing at different depths using a sliding float to try and find where they are feeding that particular day. Experienced fisherman have found that the bigger kurpers mostly feed at the bottom so why the float?
The fact is that kurpers will eat the bait so softly that you almost won’t see that there has been any activity unless you use a float that will show you those faint bites.
Kurpers can be caught mostly with earthworms, either the kariba earth worm or the common red jumpers. Kurpers love the taste of something sour so throw some “maroek” in the water before you start fishing to help attract them into your fishing area.
