Kurper History

Kurper is a summer fish, being most active in water of above 20 degree celsius, with the “high season” during late summer and into autumn, starting any time from late February and lasting well into April and, depending on the region, even into May. The reason is to be found in the kurper’s late summer, intense feeding pattern. During this time it feeds aggressively to build up reserves for the winter months, with algae, plant material, insects and in the case of mature fish, small fish as well on the menu.

Preferred Kurper Baits

The bait when at anchor is either earthworm or brown bread paste, or the bread mixed with maroek, or a combination of both. The ‘Mealie Float’ baits have also proved highly successful. As in carp fishing, an attractor is used on the trace as well. Maroek can be used, but as it does not bind when used on its own, it is mixed with oats, minced mealies or one of the commercially available ground feeds.
