Fishing stories

Well-fed fish

Fat pikes and a perchIt was amazing weather today. Cloudy, absolutely no wind and warm. I was sure it will be my day! And it was! Pikes were active! But still i had to have a lot of patience to catch pikes today. Spinners proved itself as ever.

The only pike caught on frog was about 10cm long 🙂 and was quickly released. By the way it is the first pike, caught on this lure. It looked funny! See picture. 🙂

5 pikes (3 released), 3 perches (2 released)

Pikeperch output

by on Aug.18, 2012, under Spinning, Daugava river

Beautiful fish - pikeperch (caught by Jura and released)Jura offered me to go to Daugava river with his motor boat this Saturday. I was free to go, so no excuses available! 🙂 It wasn’t our first attempt on Daugava, but the first it was so unsuccessful, so i didn’t even described it in my blog, was too lazy for that.

Today it was another story as everything worked as it should have. To my shame it worked well for Jura only! 🙂 Because my result today is a small perch, i quickly released. But for Jura it was 5 pikperches (zanders) and 2 perches.

This beauty was caught by Jura, not me

1 perch (released), Jura – 5 pikeperches (2.1kg, 1.7kg, 3 released), 2 perches (1 released)

The place, where you expect pikes to hideKinda clumsy fishing today, spent all time in the river and may be it was wrong. But i still think it was the weather today. And if it not destined today – you may try your best and still get no results. Looks like one of these days.

It was raining whole day, prior to fishing, but the temperature was ok, it wasn’t so cold. Will try my luck again in two weeks on this river.

1 pike (released)

A 300g perchReally enjoyed fishing today, absolutely no wind and a nice warm weather, not too cold. Just enough! Also active fish! All these factors made this day a good one!

Started with spinning today and a small pike in no time. After a while an amazing perch! A big one for this river – on spinner of course. All pikes and perches were caught on spinner today.

3 pikes (2 released), 5 perches (biggest 300g, 28cm), 1kg of rudd and roach

Perch in the heat

by on Jul.28, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

Nice looking perchWas on the river only after 7:00 AM, because slept away, was planning wake up at 4:30 AM! 🙂

Wasted time on float rod and catching rudd and roach, they are fun! But should have moved to the river from the very start, because perch was active today, as always in the heat. Lost precious time, that’s why only 5 perches. It was a funny moment, when a perch was already on the hook – pike attacked him and what i saw was a big suprise, two fish on the lure! 🙂 Pike with a perch in its jaws! First time i see something like that. Of course saw it on youtube before, but for me it is the first time.

By the way it was +34° C today and for Latvia it is abnormal temperature even in July.

5 perches (1 released), 0.5kg of rudd and roach
