On the old gravel pit where I usually fish for carp I decided to try my luck at catching a tench. sSunny weather was forecast that day with possible afternoon thunderstorms Maybe I catch one ??

I chose my fishing spot in front of the water lilies, where I noticed fish activity.

Tactics

I used mixed fish (corn, tigernuts, wheat, hemp), boilies, pellets and ground bait to attract tench.

I bait regular the fishing spot every 20-30minutes, but in smaller quantities. I did not want to use too much bait for day fishing because the fish would be overeating and probably would not be successful.

I used two smaller sized boilies (10mm) for the bait and the hook number 8.



Fish on…..

I noticed a tench jump from the water near my fishing spot. About 15 minutes later my bite alarm started to scream. I quickly went to the fishing rod and already felt that there was probably tench on the hook. Shortly after, the tench was already on the unhooking mat.

After a quick photo and use of antiseptic I release it back into the lake.

After a long time, i finally caught the tench. I was very happy.

Water from the lake to keep the fish wet.

Just a little bit…………..

………and tench was already swimming back in the lake.

Bye bye beauty :).

Successful day for me 🙂

But there may still be some bite……………..

……………….black clouds were coming from far away and the forecast was not promising. I barely managed to put fishing gear in the car when it started to rain very heavily.

Despite the storm, a very great day was spent by the lake with my darling.

Hmmmmmm… Which fishing cradle to buy was a big question for me. I was looking for one that would be low and long for bigger fish like grass carp and carp.

I’ve only used a unhooking mat in recent years, but since the rules at the lakes are changing (which I really like) it was time to buy a cradle.

And finally…. I found a Fox Carpmaster Cradle XL on the internet that came on the market this year. There are two sizes available: standard and XL.

After some thought, I decided to buy one. My choice was the Fox Carpmaster Cradle XL version.

Big care for Bigger fish

On the first fishing trip with this cradle I took a picture of it.

So far, I am very excited about it and it has proven to be more than excellent and worth buying despite its high price (around 170€).

Supplied in large, heavy-duty 500Denier carry bag .

*fox bucket added for presentation purposes only
Camo retention flap with Velcro securing tabs .
210Denier soft-touch PVC fabric.
Water drainage holes at each end.
Leg-lock mechanism.
Four adjustable legs to level use on uneven ground.
Low to ground frame allows you to lift the carp easy.

Happy days 🙂

Always carrying a lot of heavy equipment with me, even on short fishing trips, I decided to buy a lighter and smaller rod below the one I have. I know the easiest choice is banstick, but it is very difficult to get stuck on hard ground (rocks, concrete,…).

I was looking for a black colored rod pod, low height of any mark that would fall into my eyes. After some searching time, I was shortlisted under Fox Stalker A +, which I eventually bought.

Video Fox Stalker Plus Pod Unboxing on my YouTube channel, for more click below ??????????.

2. Finally i have it

The first impression was very good. Even when opening the box, I was very surprised by his appearance.


3. Rod pod size

Rod pod is very easy and quick to assemble when it becomes routine in about 2-4 minutes. Rod pod is the lowest at 23 cm in height and can be increased to 42.5 cm. Rod pod has the lowest at 23 cm in height and can be increased to 42.5 cm. The minimum length is only 69 cm long and can be extended to a maximum length of 106 cm.

4. A small toy for the big ones

The only doubt I had with this rod pod was that it could be carried away by smaller fish or a little stronger wind. But to me it never happened even though I was fishing very close range or with a much tighter reel.

For greater stability, you can purchase specially made anchors for this rod pod.
