My first river tench

by on Jun.21, 2011, under Float rod, Tumsupe river

This tench fought very hardTwo weeks ago i spotted spawning tenches in the place, where i ussualy try to catch pikes and perches. Now i decided to try to catch tench, since it is settled fish. So i sacrificed my fishing day solely on float rod today.

In the beginning i was attacked by roaches, then perch came. Only closer to the evening tench came out of his grass. The main thing to catch tench is a warm weather, water temperature above +16°C and a lot of patience.

Visiting Ciemupe

by on May.15, 2011, under Float rod, Ciemupe

Neighbors offered me to go to a trout pond not far from Riga. Since my fishing the previous day was canceled – i gave it a go!

Ponds turned out to be very small and full of fish. Must say it wasn’t actually challenging task to catch a trout there. Every 1kg of trout costs 5 Ls on exit. So it is up to you when you should stop. I wanted only 1 fish for me – which was caught in 5 minutes. The remaining time i have spent on playing with crucians carps in other pond. Also caught few tenches.
