9 April, Wim & Sander
Independent from eachother Wim and Sander book a fishing tour. After consultation, I can put them on one tour to the reservoir. Once at the lake, I was surprised by an engine failure .. Fortunately we can solve it on the spot. And with 15 minute delay we leave for the fishing grounds.
The waterlevel has dropped, even more than a week ago when we had not been able to catch any Tukunari. And today it seems to be an even tough day. It's Sander who has the first strike. Unfortunately the Peacockbass unhooks just before the boat .. !@@#$% .... Then it's Wim .. And he lands his first Peacockbass. Then it goes quiet ... much too long. We try a few spots. Unfortunately without result. Close to a sandbar there is action... It is Sander who gets attention. up to 3times the Peacockbass Misses "the Whopper Plopper". Then it is quiet again. The water is shallow and crystal clear. Up to 3times a school Peacock swims under the boat. "Take another lure." Sander tries the Rapala "Walk the Dog". No, he prefers the "Whopper Plopper".
There's fish and I can not resist .... With a tight pitch I throw the "Walk the Dog" .... Splash... Peacockbass... And a good Size .. 47CM That is not wrong. The fish is present but does not respond anymore. I spot a Peacock surrounded by a school of youngsters.. OK .. That is the explanation .. They are breeding. Under ideal conditions Peacockbass can breed up to 3 times an year. And then they're hard to catch. the last hour we fish for piranha. Sander is the one to end the day with a beautiful fish ..
