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)

Still water for now

Went out for a short stint at the canal this evening and caught two perch, one small and the other one is quite a decent size fish. Both were caught on a custom made 1/8 oz single willow yellow-chartreuse spinnerbait.

Not bad start just at the nearside bank. Thank you to the cyclists who helped me with the camera.

I was targeting the edges on the opposite bank but there wasn’t even a bite after half and hour's fishing. Knowing that I had less than an hour's of fishing time, I switched sides and concentrated on the nearside instead. Just after two casts, I caught this rather small but fat one. Moments later, at the same spot, out came a decent size one. Unfortunately, I did not take any weight or length measurements but the fish was definitely well over 30 cm. Also, it’s been a while since I caught a fish on spinnerbait with monofilament line. I was using a 10 lb Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon as main line on my Daiwa Pixy.

A decent size perch from the same spot.

Decent size but I couldn't find anyone to help me take a picture. This is the best one-hand shot I could produce.

This short trip was supposed to be a pre-fishing trip for tomorrow’s real outing with a fellow angler from Nottingham. Looking forward to fishing tomorrow.

Time to call it a day...

Thanks for reading.
