At around 7.30 I caught the first zander of the season - on a jig at 5 meters depth. The spot was close to where I caught 3 pike last Sunday. The weather forecast for the coming weekend is big rain and low temperatures. No reason to stay at home as the fishing seems to be really hot right now.


tench & pike

The opening day of the pike season on the 1st. of May was a desaster to make it short. 3 people fishing and no fish landed. We only had some followers and contacts of mostly jack pike. The idea to start the season at a nearby gravel pit wasn't good at all. Too many spinfishers and carpfishermen blocking our fishing spots. But even other anglers reported poor predator catches from their fisheries.
The idea to switch to tench fishing was a brilliant substitute for the poor pike fishing. And thanks to Nisse and C.S. for prebaiting and tackle!
And on the 4th. of May it was time for pike fishing again. The result: 2 river pike on bucktail spinner and soft shad for my fishing fellows.
