As I can see it the weather hasn't been optimal,not a single time when I has been out except this morning,total calm surface and warm but cloudy morning,not perfect but best weather so far.
|Ready to hit the water|
|Railblaza camera boom|
Excellent weather also to test my new toys,a home-made strippin basket with a higher rack mounted and also the Railblaza camera boom 600 was fresh mounted.
Went out around 7.30 and started to fish almost immediately and not long before I landed my first perch,had some coffee and continued with my fishing,hooked up a good pike,must have been a good 20 lb but dropped her close to my yak.
Fishing among lily pads is challenging but can give you some good rewards,but so far only small perches.
|Big or small,love them all|
Decided to paddle a bit further from the lilies to a more clean area but still with some reeds.
Felt so nice to be able to fish systematically which often gives me good results,so even this time.
The hit was heavy and angry,and it was not a pike,my heart took a new frequency for a while when I saw the fish,this must be a new PB I thought,I only had my "pike net" with me but decided to use it because I didn't wanted to drop this one.
When finally managed to get the giant in my net I was like wow,never seen that big perch live,a quick scaling and measuring and yes,Sept 2 will be written in my history as the day I landed a new PB,a nice fat perch measured 44 cm and weight 1.48 kg,top fish for me.
Don't know what happen after that but I found a huge flock of small baitfish,think they were bleaks feeding from surface,easy to locate with no wind at all,had a blast and landed perch after perch among these baitfish.
Well,even the best days come to an end,so even this one,always good to stop while you having fun.
Lifted the anchor and started to paddle back when I saw a place which I decided to give "couple of casts" to.
First cast and boom,a big perch,very big but not just there.43 cm and 1.22 kg is still my second biggest perch ever,a very beautiful fish imo.
|Just one cm from my PB,still a beauty.|
Landed a nice 30 cm fish with second cast too but nothing on third,didn't wanted to be greedy and try my luck anymore so I decided to paddle back to the shore ,felt nice to get home and just enjoy the experience Mother nature just gave me.
