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)

1/8 oz for 2 lbs (well... almost)

The 1/8 oz spinnerbait strikes again!

I've been out on the water for a short session at a local canal. Weather was good and the conditions weren't that bad. Had quite a few follows from some decent size fish. Sadly, I could not convert any of those to bites. Tried quite a few different spinnerbaits (mainly 1/4 oz) but all I got were follows. Something wasn't right.

The 1/8 oz spinnerbait strikes again!!! Not big but quite decent size for a perch.


Well, I thought I'd downsize my bait just to see if that's going to make a difference. Just as I thought so, within minutes, there was a hit. The hook-set that followed barely moved the fish! I was fishing with a medium heavy setup which was meant for pike fishing. Even on 15 lb test fluorocarbon line, the fish managed to put up a fight. For a moment, it felt like a pike!

Well then, that's just another day's fishing and once again, I'd like to thank the kind passer-by who helped me take a picture.
