We planned our next trip for the coming Saturday. The weather didn’t look too promising - temperatures dropped overnight to only
4C with local snow patches - generally cold, but it didn’t stop us because of the latest successes we had. Mariusz decided to take a second boat out . We had a simple plan - we fished the same runs with a distance of 200 meters between our boats. We had our first bites after about 2 hours - this time the bait was dead smolt. A few excellent runs and the next Ferox hen was in the boat. This one was 70 cm as well. Our optimism running high, especially after Mariusz phoned us that he just lost a fish of a similar size. But nothing happened for the next five hours. We approached the spot where Peresada caught a beautifull one a week earlier. He assured me - “You will see, we will have a bite in here!” Suddenly, I tell him he had 2 hard tugs on his rod, he looked at me with disbelief as nothing happend when he looked, but after a few second a solid hit on my rod with the Executor12RD as a terminal tackle. The fish peeled 40m of line in a matter of a few seconds. She showed herself for the first time about 30m from the boat, with a huge splash of the tail and sudden dive to the depths. We looked at ourselves and together exclaimed..” Oh chit - what a monster!” I became afraid as I knew she might be a meter long. The next few minutes she engaged me in an up and down tussle war. After a few rapid dives she finally gave up and we had her in the boat! She was 90 cm long and weighted 9kg. A few fast pictures and the vigorous Ferox went back to the water. We didn’t have any more bites this day. Despite the bad weather, the day turned out excellent. Two Feroxes to our boat ( 70cm, 90cm), and Mariusz had 2 good hits on his rod, Bigos caught one of 80 cm long fish. The next two days I manager to land one more on a Whitefish 13T. It was a plump hen of 71 cm.
