There were loads of them, on a depth of 20-40m. We travelled to many posts with cods, which on that day were to be found more often at the bottom, than chasing in depths or above the bottom. The skipper had accurately judged the situation of the shoal and accordingly to that turned maneuvered the boat and left the post always at the right moment. On some posts we bumped into strong currents and fishing there wasn’t a piece of cake. But that’s the charm of Baltic hunting fisheries. Despite the those difficulties, my colleagues were consequently using rather lighter pilkers between 90 and 120g. I was changing between pilkers between 90 and 200g. Admittedly I had to stop angling quite often to take some photo’s, though I can compare mine and my colleagues results in fishing: with comparable success one can fish with heavier (150-200g) and lighter (90-120g) pilkers, however the hands do not hurt as much while using the lighter lures. I can be wrong, but Arkadiusz was the one who fished the most cods.
The Hero of the voyage
Łukasz did a good job on handling the fishing, line tangling because of strong drifts, a few sets tearing off, the rocking deck and a bad mood. Neptune did call for his sacrifice for two more times, and even then, Łukasz had a good fishing for his first time on the Baltic Sea. While fishing next to him, I haven’t heard a single complaint and he even patiently posed for the pictures. After disembarking the boat, he said that he was looking out to go fishing on a boat on the next possible time. Łukasz is a tough guy. The “spontaneous” fishing trip was a success when it comes to fishing and social relations. The gear turned out to be reliant in every little detail, giving us the chance to precise angling. We caught many fishes and that gave us a good time while fishing on the Baltic Sea. That is what I wish also to you.
