Sept. 2015 Sandre fishing at Seine river

Summer vacation is over !
I have not been to Sandre vertical fishing almost 1 month.
Thanks to my friend Fabien.T.  He rent me his fishing boat. So, I went to Sandre vertical fishing with my friend Hiro.
Water level of Seine river was bit low than normal level. Water temperature almost 20c.

Fishing was not easy.  We have fish bite. But, only small size Sandre…  Where is Big Sandre ???
We tried different area and depth. But, some how we could not find even one big size Sandre at that day.
Also, we could not find the best lure, size, color either…   It’s seems like all of then works OK. But, we could not find the best of best….

Fishing can be very difficult. That’s why I can’t stop !!!






Summer Seine river…

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….






Shota in Paris

Quick visit of Shota !   Fishing was hard. because of super hot weather in France (40c degrees) . But, It was fun to see him.   See you next time Shota !!!


Chevalier family trying Seine river vertical Sandre fishing

Chevalier family came to visit me last weekend for Seine river vertical Sandre fishing.

Seine river level was very low & not enough strong current. So fishing was bit hard. But, We still had excellent fishing. and They caught some nice fish with Seine Sandre hard attack bite !

I usually use 28g foot ball jig head. But, Since it was very weak current. So, 21g was better to have good swimming for the shad lure.  and It’s seems like white color shad was the best of the day !










Thanks to Humminbird !

Sandre fishing with Carna95 Boyz !

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 !!!

Please have a look at Antoine.L’s blog also.
