I haven’t had much time to get out recently with work and other things going on so I decided to go on a little micro adventure stalking for pike with the Dog and convert a dog walk into stalking for pike along the river.
It’s very difficult to balance everything sometimes and sometimes something has to give and it is important to keep that balance in our day to day lives.
I head out along the river after a real heavy night of wind and rain and I am very thankful that we cancelled the previous nights camp out as the weather really did turn for the worst.
My stalking equipment basically consist of a small spinning rod, telescopic net and a ruck sack with a few lures in it.
The lure I was using this day was a small (6cm) rubber shad with a single hook. These are very productive along this stretch of the river and the previous week I had a good catch so I thought i’d give this a go again.
The tide was really low and I don’t think i’ve seen it this low before. My thought where that the fish would be very concentrated in the main channel but this wasn’t the case.
The method I use is casting out, allowing the lure to hit the bottom, the retrieve a little jigging the lure then allowing it to drop to the bottom. I find that a lot of the time the fish are taking the lure on the drop.
Not very productive fishing session only had one but it got me out for a while.
Due to to limited time I head to head back home after one fish but managed to head out the next day for a little down time. Post to follow.
