Sunset, golden colors and a 92cm pike...

Today I went fishing to another polder, this time a bit closer to The Hague - Weiportse Vliet. The sun was setting down, so I decided to use a lure with the colors that call to be used in that kind of situation - orange/gold/yellow. I chose Savage Gear 4Play - "Golden ambulance" color. The result - a 92 cm fat lady. So far the best catch of this season for me.

Poldersnoek again

I spent another morning fishing in the polders near Gouda, 4 pikes caught today. Two were very small - 30 cm so I unhooked them in the water. Next one was a 60cm, with following 77cm (nice!). All pikes were caught with SPRO BBZ-1 (again).

Personal best perch - 44cm

Hell yeah! Just 2 hours fishing straight after work and personal best in perch in the first cast. Solid 44cm on the bank after few minutes. I caught also 70cm pike in the last cast :-)

Autumn has arrived, predator fishing starts!

Polder pike

Another trip to the dutch polders and a good catch again - 84cm. The water was clear and only 50cm, so I saw the strike. Poetry for the pike angler :-) I was using again the little SPRO BBZ-1 swimbait, which becomes my favorite lure this season. I use it in the clear waters and also with the fluorocarbon leader, this works very well.

Back in bussines!

I got back from the annual leave and went fishing of course! Just a small jackie, but it counts :-) I'll hope the autumn will be better then this years spring. I know one thing, it's going to be a lot of polder fishing.
