Therapy summer fishing in Tammisaari for 8 hours. Tried zander & perch jig fishing properly for the first time. Had some difficulties to hook the fish in the beginning, since it a little different from hooking a pike. You have to start reeling at the same time you yank. Finally I managed to land my very first jig zander and 2nd zander ever :D. I am so focused on pike fishing that this was fun for a change.
My main goal was to catch summer pikes. no such luck for the first 7 hours.. I decided to use the biggest spinner bait i had and just try try try. Then at a grass spot suddenly feeding started. Pikes attacked small and big lures. Mostly the dark big spinner bait with black jig tail. I managed to land 4 pikes in a short time and some attacks/follows on top of that. Pikes were not that big, the biggest ca 3 kg. But fun anyways and the therapy I was looking for :). At the end of the day I was tired and happy! Thanks again for our skipper Timo Narinen for jig instructions and captaining the boat.
The best lure today was this quite dark Pearsons Grinder in pic below with black jig tail
