Yesterday, I went to Seine river vertical fishing with my friends. I have not been here for last 1 month. It was so hard…. There was Zero current…. No wind…. my boat is staying at same place… It was just like a lake… River fishing with out current is not good sine at all. Using my Minnkota electronic motor to moving . We were able to find some fish. Most of the active fish was very very small Sandre. My favorite 13cm Duck Fin shad was bit too big for small active fish. So I down sized my lure to 4 inch D’fin. W also had some Cat fish actition…. We had 4 bites of Cats, 3 line break. 1 in the boat.
And Just before the lunch time, one of my friend who came 1st time boat vertical fishing caught 80 cm super nice Sandre ! I am very happy for him !!! (Of course, I rented my AGS vertical rod to him. and he proof the performance of the rod !)
For the lunch. I had special Hokkaido limited Yakisoba noodle with side soup which my friend bring from Hokkaido. But, 200g noodle was bit too much….
DVD “SECRET DE CHAMPION 2” from LA PECHE ET LES POISSON magazine will coming out very soon. Frederic Julian , Laurent Vrignaud , Ryusuke Hayashi will be on this DVD. It was cold winter day fishing…. But….
Back to Seine river after 2 days of raining non stop. Yes, There was good current and muddy water is back in Seine river.
Today, Carna95 Boyz (Antoine.L and Ludovic.C) came with me for Vertical fishing.
Outside temp in the morning 0 ℃ with super heavy fog, Afternoon max temp 4℃,Water temp 6.5℃.
Since water get muddy. Chart color shad was the good choice with 28g football jig.
We could not see Sandre’s echo in fish finder today. I think they were completely stick in bottom. But, some how we saw so many Catfish echo at 1 to 2 m from the bottom. It was fun to fish the Cat from the echo image with special rod work movement.
Sandre was not easy to find today. We moved almost 6 spots. and We manege to catch around 10 Sandres. and 1 reasonable size Cat.
It was very cold day. But, We had good time today !!!
Wow, It was so windy yesterday. and also Seine river where I was fishing did not have much current. So, It was very difficult me to control my boat to say in fishing point. In fact, my bout was drifted to up stream by the strong wind…. I hate this situation. But, Thanks to Minnkota Terrova i pilot. I was able to mange to fish correctly !
Strangely Seine river water was clear than I thought and because of weak current. Sandre was very very slow. and bite was very weak…. Big Sandre was totally out. Only small 40~50cm Sandre were biting.
Also, because of water was kind of clear than general Dec situation. Chart color shad was not working. I saw big effect with White color !!! For the foot ball jig head, I usually like 28g at Seine river, But, I changed to 21g. It was perfect weight.
It was hard fishing. But, It was very interesting fishing.
