I haven’t really done much fresh water predator fishing since last year so I was excited to get out and chase a few pike yesterday but sadly they didn’t oblige. I managed one small little jack on an IMA Melty Nymph in the first 10 minutes but sadly it went quiet.
It wasn’t until I was messing around with my lure at the edge that I noticed two or three small perch come in to investigate – I stole a small soft plastic from my friends box, cast out and was straight into this little perch. Stunning looking fish. I really wish I had more access to good perch fishing they just look stunning.
A few casts later resulted in another small fish and then the shoal moved on.
Anyway it was nice just to be out and the weather wasn’t bad either – for once!
