Car to your peg what more do you need ?
Travelled light today !!!
Da mix today : Started with 2kilo bag ofVDE Turbo black with caster ,dead maggot and pinkies
It filled the 17 litre bucket up a third way.
Layout for the day
Its a huge kanal with depths from 3 - 10 metres in front of me
I started fishing at about 08:15 and during the process of plumbing the depth the rig got stuck on the bottom and i pulled for a break and it snapped at mid-way !......never expected that !. So i rigged up again using a DINO SuperCarp 2.0gram to a 0.12 bottom and 18's Sensas feeling hook. Also had another Dino of 1.5 gr also set at 2.75 m depth which was off bottom by 0.2m and the other rig was 3 m and touching bottom all at 9 metres.
After an initial cupping in of 7 balls i had my first indication after 10 minutes but it was a few minutes later when i had my first roach with a pike chasing it to the surface .I caught steady for 2 hours amassing 56 fish till Johan and Lucas came back from their walking Piking down the bank.
I started to accelerate in the catch rate and got more response the more i fed but the pike attacks continued . I hooked a pike of about 2.5 kilos in the mouth on 4 pinkies !! and landed it . About 30 minutes later i hooked another , so i thought ? and it was at a time when Johan and Lucas were setting off in the car to Persagen to try their luck with piking there. As they started to drive off i managed to wave them down and they came to help as this fish was certainly more livelier than the previous , in fact it had stretched my no.8 elastic almost all the way out on its first run !! When Johan stepped into the water with the landing net he suddenly said : 'Thats no Pike!..... its a trout ' ! .....but seconds later he said :' No! its a SALMON' ...but later it was confirmed as a Sea Trout.
Check out great films and pictures from Dr.Johan
SEA TROUT on the pole !
Johan checking the Aadipose fin status and he confimed it was a natural SeaTrout

I got to a 100 fish and decided to mix more groundbait and i finished on 152 be it many were small fish.for about 7-8.5 kilos-ish
