The open season

The open season seems quite far fetched. But, the long wait (3 months to be exact), was finally over. I wasted no time as we decided to head out to the nearest stream for some chub action. And although Sharky had landed quite a few small perch from the main river, the real action haven’t quite started.

Small stream, big fish!

This time of the year, fishing the small stream is somewhat like ‘jungle warfare’. Apart from the thorns and stings, there weren’t any venomous reptiles or insects to worry about, which is a good thing indeed. Most of the weed bushes were about waist to chest height. Creating a path through some of them isn’t easy.

One of the good size chub from the small stream by Sharky.

The end result was worth the trouble. In total, we pulled up eight decent size chub estimated to weigh about 2 lbs. Not bad at all for a small stream about a metre wide. So, until we return in a few weeks time, I guess it’s time for us to give the chub in the stream break. Stay tuned for more open season action.
