We won the FFPS north division challenger Saturday 1st of July at Seine river.
With my new competition partner Mayeul Chevalier. We have 25 years of age difference.
Just like father & son. I wish is only one thing ! I want educate him as next generation strong zen attitude Fisher.
That is my goal.
Last week competition was very difficult. The fishing zone was change in last mins by Organizer. So, It was totally new zone for us.
Since water is still not enough. The river current is very very slow… Water temp of 22c.
It was very difficult competition.
Understanding this actual situation, my goal of this competition was seeking for Pike. That was the only way, we could be on podium.
So, I was fishing only big bait lures. Big Soft shad, Big, Hard lure, Big Spinnerbait, etc….
Using my Fish finder, I was not able to see any individual nice size fish. (except some Silure)
So, I was sure Pike is hidden in weeds vegetation. and my guess was correct !
The winning lure which was Daiwa Prorex CLASSIC SHAD DF 25cm armed with assist 1/0 size hook on top of back body.
So, my lure will not pick up weeds or leaves of under water vegetation. and still can swim very close to under water vegetation. (if I was fishing very deepwater situation, I would always put my assist hook on berry of lure)
Thanks to this technique. we are able to fish 1 Pike and 1 Silure form shallow vegetation area (1m deep). Of course ! , Mayeul’s net landing was perfect too !
The tackle I was casting my Prorex CLASSIC SHAD DF 25cm was, Rod > PROREX XR PXX762XHFBAF, Reel > Zillion Type HD, Line > Saltiga 12 braid 0.18mm, Jig Head > D’jig Head 15g 8/0, Assist hook > Home made.
Thank you very very much for all your support for our team.
We will continue for next competition !!!
