New specials in my chub - ide lure box

Few days ago I ordered Hunter lures. Hunter is a brand new company established by one of the most famous spinning angler in Poland and Europe also - Andrzej Lipiński.

Andrzej Lipiński is famous mostly for his great trout chub, ide and asp fishing abilities. Fishing World Champion, Champion of Poland. He was my fishing idol for many years.

That is why I had to buy his lures. They are typically designed for chub and ide. Great imitations of bugs - very realistic with rubber legs. Good looking lures with strong and sharp treebles. I will test them soon!

One lure is fantastic imitation of bleak. Designed and intended for asp - fantastic sport fish (check out youtube for "ASP"). It is called "SPIRIT". I think it will be my killer.

You a also visit a company website - Hunter - lures to see more photos of lures and fishes.

Polish lure market is very rich and I am a "lure junkie" as someone said :)

My April-May fishing!

This year spring came quite early. With first warm days I was trying to catch some trouts, chubs, ides and perches with little crankbaits mostly.

I was fishing on Wisła river near Oświęcim, Odra river, Ruda river and Czarna Przemsza also. First trips weren't succesfull. The water was cold and fishes weren't active, but after few weeks situation was much better. I didn't catch any huge fish, but the amount of them was quite good. Czarna Przemsza was fantastic place for brown and rainbow trouts:

Wisła, Ruda and Odra gave me some nice chubs and ides. I was using my favourite tiny crankbaits for them and thin 3-4LB mono. It was a good start of long season! I am stil waiting for my first asp this year.

Everywhere was also lot of nice perches. They were sometimes a nice surprises.

My fantastic spinning catfishes

My catch of year!

There is finnaly warm and sunny. I fish as often as possible, but I have lot of work with my studies and job. Recently i was trying to catch some asp. May is the best period for asps. Instead of them I was able to fight with the biggest and most powerfull fish of Poland - Catfish!

I was using quite sensitive rod and thin monofilament, so it was difficult to stop this fishes, but both long fights ended lucky for me!

39LB Catfish!

75LB Catfish!!!

This was the best day in my whole fishing life! Two big fishes in few hours! Landed succesfully!

I think it is time to write some post about catfish in Poland!
I'm just starting to write it! :)
