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)

A few winters ago... In a longkang far far away...

This happened a few seasons ago... I can remember this fish till this day. It was a cold winter's afternoon and all standing water (apart from the rivers, canals, lakes and ponds) were frozen hard. It was a sunny and it gives you the impression that it's not cold but it is really. I was fishing the stream for chub but the conditions were against me. cover was barely none and I had to move to the canal.

The stream is usually 'bare' in winter. Chub fishing is very difficult in this conditions. But hey, there's other places to fish.

Back to fishing. I caught this fish on literally the first cast. Pitched a finesse 1/4 oz jig just a mere few feet away from where I was stood by the bank. In no time, something which didn't felt big hit the jig. but the hook-set to follow says otherwise. It was something really big. I was quite surprised to see a good size perch at the end of the line. I guess, I was at the right place at the right time! I caught this fish by pure luck with ;)

Nice perch caught on a 1/4 oz finesse jig just 1 metre away from where I was stood. (Tip: Don't bother casting far when the fish is just under your nose.)
