I had a certain amount of work-related stuff to do today but working from home meant I was able to get that sorted during the morning.
I was lure fishing this side of midday and continued just beyond it, all in all a pretty short session.
You know what they say though, quality over quantity, and as far as time was concerned, that was most definitely the case.
I caught two pike, which I was really pleased with, although no perch.
Im not exactly complaining though. Just saying.
With Storm Dudley on the way – it’s here now as I write – I was happy to get out there in conditions that were much easier as far as lure fishing is concerned.
While I fished, I watched two great crested grebes displaying.
A sign that spring is on the way.
The tackle I fished with was as follows:
Fox Rage Ultron drop shot rod, Fox Rage Ultron 2500 reel, 10lb Sunline braid on reel.
Drennan Double Strength 15lb (1.5 metres) joined to the braid with a small swivel.
Micro jig head 0.7g size 6 hook. Glider 2 inch rubber fish. All knots (3) blood knots.
