BIG FISH from the Beach on Popper ! (Corsica part 2)
Here I am, second day of fishing. I’m on a new beach now. As you can see, it’s very beautiful out here. I’m alone, well I came with a fishing patner. Other than that, there’s nobody. Except for the piles of seaweeds, but that shouldn’t be a problem. There are tons of seaweed in the water, So It should be good for fishes. I will start with a 40g jig, we will see. Then I will try using a popper or a jerkbait. Aie ! my feet will die here. I use a jig coz it’s very shallow and I need to cast pretty far. Is the water cold ?… oh yes oh YES ! Standing in the water, that’s the real thing !! I saw some mulets, mulets means leerfish. I saw something follow. Yes ! Oh no… Yes ! oh sh** ! Oh common they won’t get hooked !! Common, common ! I can’t believe this. I can’t catch them.. Unbelievable. Oh yes ! It’s not big, a tiny leerfish?! No, what is this ? It’s a weever ! It’s huge ! I don’t like this at all. A big weever, I never saw such a big one. I thought it was a small leerfish, but no. Well, a weever on popper. It’s paradise here ! I need to reach the tip of the… The problem is to cross this. It’s so beautiful ! What kind of rocks is that ?! The sharpest rocks on earth ! I’m in a hollow. I will use my good old jerkbait It’s all broken but it takes some fish ! I kind of lost hope for the topwater. The water is very clear and calm, I had 3 hits before, maybe small leerfish. They couln’t catch it, And now I think I had a follow on popper, but I didn’t see well. But nothing, So I’m going to change lure and we will see if, when the conditions are calm like this with a clear water, It’s better to play the card of realism. Well, change of beach, ther’s a man on surfcasting. Here at least ther’s no wind and no waves for now. And that is really what I am looking for. We’ll see how it goes, I’ll start with a jerkbait. You really have to fish the edges Very often there are big fishes just near the bank. This one is nice ! It ate my popper just right here ! YES Finally I caught my leerfish, at least I think it’s one. It’s hooked on the back, it happens often when they attack lure. My camera was off, I saw it and … These fish are so strong. Come here ! It still has some strengh Come here with me darling 🙂 I’d like to catch it. Common common ! I can’t catch it my rod is too long. All good ! It’s a nice fish ! A nice leerfish Calm down ! Well, nice leerfish ! I think it’s my biggest so far.. I approximately measured it, it’s not huge but it fought well. We’ll see if she’s fine. Yes ! Well, that’s it for this morning I finally caught my leerfish ! I can’t really tell how big it was I’d say around 2 kg Maybe more, maybe less I don’t know but she gave a good fight. It got hooked really… I saw it follow but my camera was off and I just turned it on before she took the lure, I hope we’ll see it ! She took like like 50cm from the beach and then ran of . A nice fight and I could release it so… I’m quite happy, I hope I can catch more. Maybe tonight, or another afternoon. That’s it, see you soon !
