I had the friday off from work and we headed to the countryside with my friend. We arrived at the cabin thursday evening and quickly set the gear and headed for the lake. The evening was quite quiet, few attacks and follows, nothing more. Next day was already better. I landed 4 pikes, 3 small ones and 1 a little bigger. It rained and it was windy as well. On saturday the rain continued and fishing was quite hard, only 3 small pikes, we decided to try trolling, but with little luck. The rain stopped around 17.00 and we decided to go to this quite shallow bay just for fun. The evening sun shined and suddenly the pikes were having a feeding frenzy. And even the size of the pikes started to match their appetite! we hooked 6 pikes in like 30 minutes. few small but the others were between 2-3 kg and then this 4 kg beast shown in the picture. Fall is coming!
