I'm on vacation at the moment so that's why I went out fishing on this Monday in a rainy and windy weather.
Decided to fish on a totally new area and started with Perch.
I fished for couple of hours but landed only two small jacks and because of the weather I was a bit annoyed and decided to paddle to a area I have had some awesome pike fishing earlier,just to get some action,not funny to be cold and soaked and not even catch.
The water was murky in this area because of the wind and normally I would not have even fish here but it was too late to change any plans now and a long way to paddle anywhere else so I started to fish.
This area is pretty small but still if you fish it carefully there's a lot to fish.
It felt a bit strange to use bigger flies again after those small size #6 hook flies but not too long before I managed to get some decent length in my cast,not even long before I landed my first pike from this area for this season.
Pain in the ass to get decent pics in rainy weather,couldn't get better than this pic.
I never thought this place could be so good in summertime,very shallow and murky water.
Guess that a lot of baitfish and good places to hide under lilypads and small pocket among all reed is the key that fishing here use to be good.
Landed couple more nice fishes and tried to eat something even if my sandwhiches was soaked,but just to keep the focus on fishing.
I was good to keep the focus on because just before I was to leave someone attacked my fly hard.
I really struggled to keep this angry bugger in control and when she come up to surface I saw that this was a good fish...+100 cm for sure.
The fight kept on for about 5 minutes,way too long imo,but finally managed to land this beauty and after a quick measuring and some pics she was safely released back where she belong
Season best so far.
Gosh it felt good to fish for pikes after couple of Perch sessions.Can't wait to get out again.
