A blog about multi-species lure fishing and life in the U.K and abroad and a little bit more. Always believe in lures! (TheFishingboy@gmail.com)

Before the close season...

Went fishing for a couple of hours on the last day before the season comes to a close to find that things were not too different from the past few weeks. The water remained low and perch could be found at most of the usual spots. I can't remember when it rained the last time.

Overcast and cold day. But, the perch are still biting here.


Caught a few perch but none were particularly big, largest one was touching 30cm. I was fishing with a light Texas rig 3” craw for most of the trip. Well, the fish wasn’t caught until the very last minute just when I was about to call it a day. As much as I love catching the other species, the perch has been my favourite species. They are as close to a bass as you can get, minus the size. They are ever so good a fighter and they never seem to let you down.

The biggest fish of the evening. This one's just touching 30cm, nothing too uncommon at this part of the stream.

Hook-set was well times. The fish was hook at the upper jaw.


Now, all I got to do is to wait 3 long months before the river season opens. So, time to hit the canals and the lakes, until next time, there’s more to come.

Off you go to fight another day.


Thanks for reading.
