Perch in the heat

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

No faith – no fish

River is waking up at 5:00 AMToday decided to try it seriously, woke up at 5.00 AM, and at 6.00 AM i was already in the boat with a float rod and a first rudd caught. I was doing good, but the rudd was really small. The only reason why i kept almost all of the rudd is – i don’t really like it.

It was time to switch to spinning, and may be it was too late. Desperate attempts to catch anything helped me to land only one undersized pike today.

1 pike (released), 1kg of rudd and roach
