Fishing For Mudfish

Mudfish are small freshwater species. They are similar to Yellowfish, but smaller. Due to their small size, they can be a challenge to hook. Mudfish are mainly bottom feeders. Their favourite foods include algae, scavenging in the mud and hunting small aquatic insects. Mudfish are under extreme threat and a so a catch and release system is highly recommended.

Mudfish spawn in summer normally after heavy rains when mature specimens will travel upstream to find a suitable breeding site.  

Medium to light tackle is normally used for these shy, small and hard fighting fish. Knowing when to strike is a problem as their small mouths provide a very limited target area. The lighter your line and smaller your hook, the better chance you will have to hook a mudfish. Hook sizes can be between 14 and 10.
