Urban fishing: Oxford (Part 2)

First of all, a very 'Happy New Year' to all, and now let’s continue with Part 2 which actually took place the same day.

This is what I came for and it was mission accomplish. A good size perch on a Texas-rig 3" YoMama craw.

All fish were released unharmed to grow bigger to fight another day. Do your part, practise catch and release whenever possible.

After the rather slow start to the morning’s fishing, we headed to McDonalds for lunch only for the weather to take an unexpected turn. In contrast to the morning’s overcast skies, there was sunshine. Thinking of making the most out of the conditions, I decided to head back to the very spot. But, before I could settle into the fishing rhythm, the wind had once picked up. Despite the sunny conditions, it was very windy.

Definitely not a personal best but it was a very decent size fish.

Despite the rather slow fishing, I kept my head down and concentrated on the fishing. Just as I was about to call it quit, the results which came prove that fishing is truly an unpredictable sport. Somehow, I happened to be at the right place at the right time. I came for what I was looking for and it was mission accomplish.

A 'by-catch'? For one moment in the middle of the fight, I thought that I'd caught a monster perch but it was a chub after all.

In addition to the perch, I caught a very decent size chub which for one moment I thought I’d hit the jackpot. But hey, it’s still a fish and I was glad.

As always, thank you for reading.
