Story of my Zander fishing on a 3 day long weekend.
Total catch: 21 zanders + 1 pike + 7 catfish.
Trust me, I was not aiming to catch catfish, but shomehow there is no fishing where they are no showing up 🤣
Friday: Danube. “Thanks God” hydroinfo has fucked up water level report for Friday down so water lever increased with 50 cm more than reported. It’s not a lot to them, but it is ruining my fishing. I thought, I will freak out. I suffered as hell to catch zanders, they were not in their usual places. Then, by some miracle, I managed to catch 4 ea, from the “not so bad” kind. Number of hours spent fishing: finished with 16h . 😎
Saturday: Pécs Lake. The situation was improving, but by the time I ended up on a lake from Danube it was 11am, there was 25km/h wind that held until the evening. Thanks to the minimal spot knowledge, 8 zanders, 1 pike and 5 lost fish, from which unfortunately there was one around 10 kg catfish.
Sunday: Secret place. Perfect windless weather for the whole day. I had an awesome fishing day, which is shown in the results. 9 zanders, 7 catfish and about 10 missed bites.
In overall, it was not a bad fishing trip, but now I need 2 days to heal 🤣
