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)

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)

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

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

Small pikes and a tick bite

by on Jun.30, 2012, under Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

A 200g pike (released)Dedicated this day to spinning. Pretty warm weather made me hope for a perch activity today. Perch was a little bit more active, than usually, and i even managed to catch four of them today! 🙂 Two small pikes on walker and one standard pike on spinner. Great weather, slightly windy, good mood.

But the next day my positive mood was all gone, because i noticed a tick in my leg. Wasn’t really surprised, but just don’t like all the problems, coming with it. Last time i was bitten 10 years ago or so.

3 pikes (2 released), 4 perches
