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)

Fishing the post-spawn

To me, the post-spawn period is akin to the dog days of in early summer in that most of the species tend to get very finicky in their feeding habits. Over the course of the morning's fishing, we've had countless follows. But despite all that, the fish were not going for the kill as most were seen to be short striking and even knocking on lures with their noses. So, once again, we were in for some difficult fishing ahead.

The only near decent fish of the day caught in deep cover on a spinnerbait.

As for that occasion, were were fishing at a canal somewhere near the city of Nottingham. The water was gin clear and vegetation was quite sparse. The conditions were ideal for sight fishing if they fish were a little more committed.

Through all, the results of the day have been really disappointing so to speak. Considering the number of follows we had, we just couldn't convert them to bites or even hook-sets. I had 3 small perch and a pike and that was the best that I can do.

Back to the suburbs again and I can't wait till fall to get back into action.

Well, I can't wait till fall where the action begins. As always thanks for reading.
