Last week I had a day off, and found myself with Nicolas in a new region around Gouda.
The day started quite cold at 3°C, with easter wind, not really what I wished for, but a day fishing is always a good one spent.
Nico had a good fish after only 10’, followed by one I took under a bridge. We both found some nice fish during the morning, and then things slowed down.
Until a good pike chased right next to Nico. And than I saw a boil to the left, and another, and another. I changed angles and was able to hook a good pike. We suddenly found ourselves in the right place on the right time.
Nico made a cast and hooked a good one, I made my cast and hooked also one : two fish in one net… We cast again, and we couldn’t believe our eyes when we both hooked again a pike in the same place at the same time.
Four fish in less than 5’ ! To make a long story short : we took 9 fish in that spot ! We’re even more convinced that you should insist in a spot where you’ve caught a pike.
As days are really short, we ended around 16h30 our Rodtrip, and made up the balance : 9 pike for me, and 8 for Nicolas. And we both lost a couple, so we went back home, and had some good Belgian fries !
We’ll soon be back for more : )
