I’m officially giving start on fishing day #3 We’re going after Dentex That will be the main goal for today If we’re lucky we will be successful The weather is perfect, for now though I suspect it’ll get worse in the afternoon So, our window of opportunity is in the next few hours maybe 2-3 hour window So this time we will surely need your good-luck wishes like this So that we could reach our goals … like it’s said. Right, Shkarov?
Do you have high goals? I’m thinking of… doubling yesterday’s score – Okay, I…
– At least 10kg and since I’m a maximalist, I would like to triple it so… Good luck! As soon as we started we found quite the amount of fish, but this also gave start of our sorrows: there is fish but it doesn’t bite Come on Shkarov! Everything bet to the bottom and it won’t budge It’s absolutely frustrating to watch this image.
Fish go up and down, following our tackles, but they won’t strike It’s killing me they disappeared We just need two It’s visible on the sonar how the fish follow up behind our tackles and then follow them back to the bottom and they don’t nib or strike Fish is here Ah? The fish is here they’re down to the 65-63’d meter I can’t find words for this It’s horrible You can see the jig’s path but nothing happens All of this are Dentex No exceptions But they don’t strike Literally 2-3 minutes after I told you this we had our first … Dentex gathering or a Dentex seminar We only got away with a nib on the tail I threw a silicone, Shkarov is trying his luck on a jig Obviously fish isn’t very active here I will be showing you on the sonar What a headache! How we’re having no catches, I have no idea No matter! We have time. Come on, Shkarov, load the weapon Ready for battle Same old- large amounts of fish and unfortunately still no interest Obviously, it’s just not the hour And I hope it’s the hour and not something else Because if so, we’re done for with all of this fish that I’m seeing and not a single strike is absolutely unnatural It’s visible how thy’re following the jig clearly visible And they just wont strike, with the exception of this one nib on the silicone but the fish was small or just wasn’t sure about it It just bit on the silicone and let go There was no time for me to react Again we found them and again they ignore us I just can’t fathom it We’re exactly on top. We can see how they’re wondering about the baits but they just wont bite Right now they’re following Shkarov but to a point We’re in the feeding hour and we don’t have a single fish and the worst part is that I can already see how the wind is coming around Which is in no way a good sign You can see it making it’s way bit by bit It’s starting very delicately But at one point everything suddenly takes a turn and we won’t be able to spend the whole day Hopefully we get lucky Our attempts at catching fish were unsuccessful throughout the whole day Going around, finding fish fish were clearly visible, following our baits but we had no results Until we came to this moment Sundown and see what happened I registered a weak strike while the bait was falling and after I took out the tackle I noticed that my hook was missing But the thing that made me wonder was what I was seeing on the sonar For the first time, a Bitefish peeled off of the bottom And naturally this made me wan to make another attempt And I was about to get ready to go Obviously we weren’t done yet What happened?! We had given up! I’m suspicious about the fish though On the first drop, it stuck but only pulled the hook off And I made a second attempt I adjusted my hook and let the tackle down carefully I saw it very clearly on the sonar And from there… once, twice and on the third time it struck but how she wasn’t prepared We’ll see what’ll come out It’s either a Grouper or a Dentex At first it fought like a Dentex but now I’m not so sure Oh, how beautiful Oh, how beautiful The lady with the teeth Toothy And what will you say? What can I say? Never ever give up All day!
All day! Never ever give up, even to the last possible moment because as you can see Gundi can score even at the last second Bravo, Shkarov! Number 2! Dentex I’m with the same impression By the way it shakes it’s head, it’s obvious See when they started feeding Yeah Come here [fish #2], this one [fish #1] is lonely She needs a friend Opa! Today, I must say was literally The typical example to the saying: Cover Gundy to the last second All day, all afternoon we went around.
We saw a lot of fish we even had a few attacks ripped silicones, nibs etc but the fish, minus one exception, was not caught And , like I already said we were preparing for the walk of shame We thought
“This is it! last spot and then we’re done” We’re still on this lat point because there is still fish below us Only reason I’m not fishing right now is that the sun has set and there is barely any light and otherwise I won’t be able to tell you my final words that’s why i stopped for a second and I just want to tell you this Never lose hope and never give up on your skills and knowledges because somewhere around you there is fish that can be caught That’s why- wish me luck I’ll keep the camera rolling and I’m off to fish The past day Is a certain success in my book even if practically for 10h of fishing, we didn’t catch anything For myself, I managed to make some important conclusions First of which is that We got a clear idea of the boundaries of an area, containing shoals of Dentex Large ones, as a matter of fact The other thing is that again I proved to myself that I these fish always, always, have a window of activity around sundown We solved one, seemingly unsolvable problem We managed to catch 3 fish throughout the day To me, this may be a win, despite a difficult one Good luck and see you soon
