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.
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.
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.
Till next time …
… tight lines and wet landing nets!
