Pike in may – stay tuned on
May is for me, as for many other anglers also dominated the pike fishing. In addition to the end of the trout closed season there is hardly a date on that I am every year so looking forward, like the end of the Pike closed season. And so it was of course decided to spend the entire first weekend in may on the water.
First fishing day in may
On the first day after the closed season in may, the hell broke loose on the water – not necessarily the best conditions for a relaxing start. However, I have found yet a Bay then after a short time where no boat was. After I once across range had caught me by my tube fly, and there was actually the longed-for bite – then towards evening quite right here, for me, the fascination lies at fly fishing for Pike; I led my tossed tube slowly from the shallow in the deep water, when I spotted a shadow near the fly. Two short pullers, the shadow accelerates, emerges as a Pike, and will pop the 20 cm tube in the run in. Though were the culprits only to a smaller copy, the bite was but just as exciting as when a large Pike. Herrlich.
Fully motivated, I’ve fished some time next until I was again too late in bed – the next morning but at 6 on the water. The wind was from the South/East; Accordingly, I anchored my boat off an edge, on which the wind head-on pressed. Not only the Dutch know; wind op de kant vis in de hand – or something like that.
Anyway, the long-awaited bite came at the third throw. And on day two after the end of the Pike closed season right back, I realized, why soaddicted to Pike fishing with the fly rod I; the strip strike came clean and met immediately with two angry, slow head blows. In the first few seconds of the drills, it soon becomes clear with what caliber you have to do it. Small Pike usually nervous fidgeting, come quickly to the surface and try to jump. However, if the opponent on depth remains and is heading for open water, you know that here no grass Pike on the hook depends on. I took the fish to the role of, increased the pressure and after a short time I could back my counterpart see first in the clear water – strong fish, top shot. I had burned to nothing and could the 80 + Pike in the boat lifta little later. A beautiful, quite dark fish, which had risen after the exertions of the spawning season back fine on weight.
The rest of the month of May is quickly told. The Pike did not light it me, I could fight some still – the dream monster is still missing. Coming in June, no problem.
Here’s a little video from may including live bite:
