This time I went fishing on a commercial lake. Fishing matches are also common on this lake, so there are plenty of fish in this lake. Because there are many smaller carp in the lake, it is so much harder to catch carp over 4 pounds. The 4 pound carp really isn’t big, but on this lake it’s a real challenge to catch it. Some anglers say there are also grass carp in the lake, but I haven’t seen or caught any in all these years. Maybe I catch a grass carp on my next fishing trip, who knows, anything is possible.
I have already written about this lake on my blog in one of the previous posts, click: Boilie waggler Carp fishing – if you want to read this post.
- Air temperature: max 24°C
- Wind: 12 km/h
- Precipitation: slight rain showers during the day, evening, heavy rain
I mix groundbait before I start fishing. During this time when I prepare my fishing rod and other fishing equipment, the groundbait slowly moistens.
Prepared landing net before start fishing is important especially when fishing alone and it’s so much harder to put together a landing net when we catch a fish. My advice is to prepare everything you need for fishing and then start fishing.
I decided to use a 0.5 gram float for fishing today. Lightweight, sensitive and visible, perfect combination for today’s fishing ?.
The first carp caught after a few minutes of fishing. The beginning is promising.
In addition to hook baits I had with me, wild strawberries grew nearby. I didn’t eat them all, so I used some of them as bait on a hook.
The most beautiful part of float fishing for me is enjoying nature, observing the float and of course catching fish or two.
In addition to groundbait, I also fed the fishing spot with home-made particle. Because there are quite a few fish in the lake they ate the fishing food quickly. That the fish were active I noticed after the muddy water rising to the surface. I didn’t have a specific feeding timing, I only fed by my feeling.
And the float disappeared beneath the surface ………. fish on ??.
One of the many carps I caught that day. Happy day ?.
Damage to the gill cover probably occurred during spawning. In this case, we must be very careful that the antiseptic does not get between the gills. If we do not apply the antiseptic carefully, we can do more harm than good. If you are not skilled in this procedure, you better not apply anything.
While waiting for the fish bite, it’s time for a hot challenge. But they’re not as hot as I expected. Maybe next time I’ll try to catch some fish on these Smoki Fun Hot Challenge.
Perfect, the groundbait ball landed nicely next to the float.
It started to rain and the fish became very hungry.
Because it started to rain heavily, I decided that I would end up fishing that day. For that day I caught quite a few carp, I didn’t count how many. The number of carps is not even important to me, but the fact that I was by the lake and enjoyed fishing to the maximum.
