Shore based angling is much more stealth and I do not have to worry about being in the right position. In the beginning the 18 gr heads was considered small for me, but by time I started to adopt this ultra-light finezze method, my most used weight is around 10 gr.
But occasionally I fish with heads that weighs just 5 gr!
One of my favourite lures is the Savage Gear Fat T-tail minnow, and there is a very good reason for this. Most shads have a strong tail. This limits the movement from the lure and make it stiff.
The Fat T-tail has a light and soft tail structure and the t-shape of the tail makes the water flow wiggle the tail harder.
The fat body of the lures does two things. First of all, it makes it easier to rig the lure without disturbing the shape of the softbait and secondly, it has a wide profile which will make it look attractive from underneath.
I fish it as an ordinary jig, but the fat body also allows me to fish it linear, which has proved to be very effective in the shallows. I feel every single nibble on end of the line, which is super important when targeting the biggest perch of the lake.
The unexpected Due to heavy rain over the last couple of weeks, we could not fish our usual hot spots.
Rick and I have long been talking about a new location in an old quarry. We have been told stories from there, but as we all know, anglers have a tendency to exaggerate their fishing adventures.
The night before our trip, we searched for good spots using satellite images from online map service and found a perfect drop off. With our waders on we got in position and hoped that the spot would hold some decent fish.
A few casts into our fishing session, I felt a light pull on my Fat T-tail.
A split-second after I felt this deep shaking that surely indicates that this is a serious perch fighting for its life. I try to stay calm and not pressure the fish too hard. A fish like this can make me feel sick for weeks if I miss the chance to hold it.
The fight is short, but the adrenaline is pumping like an engine in a formula one car. When finally she surrenders, my smile reached my ears from happiness.
It was massive and the measuring tape stretched to 51. It was a new personnel for me. After some snapshots, the fat lady gets released and swim back into the clear water. Another 50 cm perch well over 2,5 kg slipped into the landing net.
