I am planning a fishing trip to Chelmsford dam (outside newcastle) in the next few weeks. I want to catch some bigger ones and I was thinking of making a voerplek with maybe some cooked whole millies and a block of cattle lick that has molasses in it. What I need to know is should I just put it in the fishing spot the day before? And any other advice would be appreciated.

I usually make voerplek 3 days before fishing but hte problem with whole boiled mielies and beeslek of molasse blokke they tend to call a lot of smaller fish.
But then you keep busy! Beeslek is better if you only have a day before you start fishing. just remember to tie it to a rock and put a plastic bottle there for a marker so you can cast in its area...

Lekker visvang! :beach:

Well it isn't just me fishing so if everyone is busy catching then it is just as good. What do you usually make your voerplek with? And do you think I should just leave the miellies?

Thanks.

I cook crushed mielies for about 2-3 hours and occasionally a molasses block always catch a lot of fish. I put the cooked mielies in orange bags so the fish cant help themselves to quickly and remember to put a rock or something in the bag so the bag doesn't drift away if there's a storm or something. I usually do this 3 days before we go fishing and also use some of the cooked mielies for my bom.
