Fishing an URBAN CREEK – does it hold fish? ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿข (Grand Slam!)


[Music] well good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome back to a super exciting episode I’m always excited when I go fishing but today is something extra because there’s one thing that I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time you know on my way to work I passed this super cool urban Creek flowing below the highway and you know for years I’ve been thinking like does this Creek hold and a fish or is it just you know load of dirty water I’ve never seen anyone fish in here and yeah I never heard of anyone doing so either but this is what it looks like small creek going through here and up in under the highway over here behind me not sure how well you can see it but this creek falls between two good lakes that I know hold fish so potentially it could hold some fish I think it’s late September like the last days of September as you can see the trees are starting to get all colored I brought my PI quad and to perch Robb’s I think in order to catch something in this small Creek we’re not gonna use Whovian Road sterically I’m thinking more like Finnish fishing you know perch maybe Pike maybe sander who knows if this Creek doesn’t deliver at all I also have a float tube in my car parked up here so probably this video is gonna be split into two parts so say first some urban creek fishing and then we’re gonna take the flow tube out into one of these Lakes if the creek fails so let’s just go down to the creek here and see what we can do [Music] all right so this is its let’s look at this super cool spots I’m sure many of you fish spots like this on a regular basis I don’t I usually fish in like all on islands northern Sweden and those very untouched you know beautiful in another way places but this is just so cool this stretch right here seems to be quite shallow but I think that if we go closer to the lake ends it might be a little bit deeper but I’m gonna start fishing right in here wow this is so cool I think in order for us to catch something I think we will need to downsize as much as possible I think I’m gonna start with maybe we can go with this black one there small baby dragon gray donate five grams pro offset which again should be perfect starting off with my socks a shade perch addition 7 foot 3 up to 21 grams with this Revo MDX HS one of my favorite combos for you know not only perch fishing but kind of combined Pike and perch fishing as well because it’s just so much fun to fight fish and to fish with a light combo like this and again since I have no idea what to catch I’m using this Wolfram leader from darts so they were Park proof and I haven’t noticed any difference when fishing for perch in at least one it’s not ultra ultra clear water but the wire leader would spook the fish or anything like that but that’s a challenge for it to do this to a perch fishing wire versus four-carbon leader all right so first cast in this urban creek that’s super cool I feel so much like youngbae right now it’s incredible looks like we’re not having more than one liter of water max at this particular spot but I need to eat right I’m gonna waste my time here yes because it’s a cool spots I think it’s a little bit too shallow we go all over today is gonna be to catch a fish no matter what I think we are alight a few hundred meters from each lake you know like I said this is a creek between two lakes yes I think so I think that the closer we go to the lake ends more fish were likely to see I hope at least because this place was empty all right mommy arms just like that train you’re gonna move on in life let’s try this spot for a few casts the reason why I go with this and black here baby dragon is first off because it’s the smaller and I want to downsize but I also know that there are crayfish in those two lakes that this tree connects so I thought there’s a chance that this river holds some crayfish and at the perch would be in here to feed on them or something like that but yeah that’s that’s the theory Oh a sea fish I see a fish okay a small minnow thing so first sign of life a few small minnows you know 5 6 centimeters maybe swimming around on here it’s a little bit deeper it feels like we’re getting closer to the fish oh it was a bike down there what’s a pike spooked it was standing right below this mystery holy moly come on pike revealing herself again a whole man first the fish spotted first predictor well we’re slowly slowly getting closer to fish we started up there then we saw the bait fish down here we saw a pike here we’ll probably have a bite down there and catch far up there four times like that so we’re making progress at least the pike you really gave me some hope and all that we could catch something look at this this looks really good really nice and deep dry here so here it actually looks a lot deeper and also have a lot more occurrence when I fish this place I’m gonna make a few casts with a deeper in it just to you know see the water temp and also see how deep it was so no fish here eater so you might have seen in earlier videos I’ve started using this a Sharples version of the deeper which has some more advanced features compared to the earlier versions and I’ll start off by just putting it in the water like this connected to the phone the mode we want to be using now is the onshore GPS mode then it uses the built-in GPS or the sonar to create the depth map for it so now you see starts reading this data and I cast it out into the current here and then it’s gonna be we can let it drift just by itself alright so this is what this error looks like we have one meter of water you can see some stuff on the bottom this is probably a vegetation and debris in water as you can see the picture is super detailed and that is because traditional sonar sends out one frequency beam with one frequency one this one sends out three different frequencies simultaneously which enables it to create this super detailed colors the same technology is used in some of the you know very advanced hummingbird donors that we have in our north sailor boat and the fact that they have this advanced technology in this small and inexpensive piece of device is just crazy thirteen point eight degrees and now it all would look like now this is really turning into a creek look get this still super shallow everywhere it looks like the water level of this Creek is way higher than this sometimes of the air now like I said it’s the end of September but I would guess like during the spring when all the ice is melting and periods like that the water level seems to be at least one one-and-a-half meter higher and then I can imagine that things are a little bit different now I’m all stuck that I’m gonna go get a new little gadget that I brought for situations like this so this right here is a super smart cool thing called a lure retriever it’s something that I’ve heard of I’ve seen people build these guys I’ve heard of people using these guys with great success but I’ve never done so myself and now when I knew that I was gonna fish you know this kind of place with lots of crap in the water I thought that it would be a great idea to bring alert retriever this is a ready-made you know ready to buy version from a lithuanian company called the super ear and many of you guys are probably already familiar with this old gadget I’m gonna show you how it works so we’re gonna see if we can get my lair loose from you know in the middle of the creek here so it looks like this you have this one with I think it’s 5 meters of line of course you can put on more if you like and then you have this heavy thing that you would set onto your line let it lie down and then it will crank it and for the punch it loose or if you’re fishing with a treble hook ler these Shayne’s might grab onto the treble hook and you just pull it out but now we’re gonna see here I’ve never tried this before like I said so this is gonna be super exciting I’ve now lost so many layers in my bass and if this works good I’m almost gonna start crying to get some you know all the lyrics that could have been saved but we will see you just thread this one on to the line and let this guy out and now I will just let the guy down to learn and punch it huh there we go like third or fourth type of punching we got it loose oh man this guy did the trick exactly as good as I hoped it would do it’s a good idea in theory and like I said I know people who are using things like this on a regular basis but you know I had my doubts but it saved my there so damn fast we’re gonna see if we get tonight more times now and we’re gonna try again also if we go to the float tube we might get into other types of snagging situations but I’m gonna keep this one in my box and keep evaluating this one because yeah that was a very very good start these guys can be found on eBay for a very good price with the link in the description below now also see if we can get these warm seem to the can we go this Web shop because yeah it’s a very very good tool that I think that I’m gonna bring in my fishing gear all the time they come in a few different versions I think this is one it’s like 200 grams this is a medium sized thing they have some tiny tiny ones for a smaller layers that wants to damage you know if you have small balls like crankbaits and then they also have like 300 gram super heavy-duty stuff for your biggest Pike lers it will slide down and punch your lure and rig super hard due to all the weights but this is to immigrant version should be good all-around option for Pike and perch fishing and if you using treble hooks these chains might hook on to one of your travel looks and you can pull but it’s heavy line instead of your theme wire or four-carbon main line and then it gets straighten the hook and get your lower back which is good for you your wallets and for our waters we don’t want a lot of lures on the bottom or rivers and lakes and archipelagos so this one or you know anything like it it’s a must-have for all anglers so now we’re getting to the river mouth to the lake here and if it’s gonna happen in the river it’s gonna be here because we haven’t had any action whatsoever inside the creek don’t oh I can’t believe it I can’t believe it well fish holy moly felt like it hurts meld well no action for me in the river or the river mouth fair one perch lost but that’s all so when I’m gonna head back to the car inflate the flow tube and head out on one of these lakes instead let’s do this [Music] Cheers so in this blue bag here it’s something that I’ve been longing to try since I first saw it on f6 this year in Brussels and it is the new platform jr. from our friendship 7 past design so you guys have seen me plenty of times using the platform excel which is the big big brother of the flat form family it’s quite big and quite you know heavy so it’s not the best one to you know carry to you know remove flakes itself so they came up with this one the platform junior which is kind of a normal-sized throw tube but you know same design same everything as the platform excel we never tried it some super super Thomas [Music] all right launched and ready to go you look at its beauty so cool colors let’s have a seat feeling of freedom so this is the lake I’m gonna fish and I’ve actually never fished this place before either so now I’m all relying on this one to show me where the fish are I forgot to bring a lanyard I’m just going to put it on what I’m going and just leave it lying in the water like that and we have the deeper floating so now we’re gonna open up the app again and we’re gonna change back to boat mode now it’s gonna use the GPS from my phone the other way the data from the sonar so here we can see it starts drawing we have three point six meters and we start drawing this map I think I’m gonna leave this one down here keep an eye on it and use the oars to see if I can find something good looking so it starts to drop off now I have four and a half meters and here you can see it’s great two different colors on the maps so this is the place for fishing we’ve been paddling from here to here the very close to the shore and we have almost 8 meters of water so this looks like an interesting spot definitely places like this could potentially hold both sounder pike and perch they could all bite my flat nose me fish on fish on finally almost gave up there for a while but now we have the first Fisher feels like a little perch yep that’s what we have do you have no idea how much you mean beautiful little fish right on this deep drop-offs from 5 meters now I was testing it along this drop-off and boom so this is what she looks like the first fish caught from my platform Junior and the first fish caught in this film after many many many hours I think it seemed like 2 o’clock or something and now we get the first fish so yeah she means a lot haha awesome let’s go back and see if there are more there you go bye bye [Music] there you freaking go mission accomplished oh it’s so good so perhaps we’ll track the code a little bit swimming fishing this lake now for a half an hour an hour maybe and we came to this you know very deep spot deep close to the shore and a very sharp drop-off and this is where we caught the first fish so yeah I’m super happy awesome I think we have like one or two more hours to fish so hopefully we can catch a few more fish awesome [Music] gonna change over to spinning combo with a me Channel real insects are odd reason being that I have a four-carbon leader this one instead of wire so let’s see if this will make in a difference because they seem to be quite tricky just look at these beautiful colors I love the fact that autumn is here [Music] fish on first cast with a spinning reel haha a four-carbon leader I wonder if that’s indication that you know four-carbon is really making a difference boom fish number two on this black oak away perch monkey shad well look at this colors of fall there’s beautiful face this beautiful orange monkey shad and it’s you know red fins on his perch fish number two first cat’s word for carbon that’s crazy let’s try a few more cats so here we have three point six meters close to eight meters outside there and then we’re fishing this drop off with the yeah this one monkey shad in the 14 grams bro do yet if I would choose one head wait for fall perch fishing it would have to be somewhere around you know 14 grams 10 10 15 grams somewhere it’s usually good weights when fishing on three to six seven meters oh I think I missed one so we’re estranged seems like there’s one part here in one porch area but we don’t get more than one two bytes at a time which is a little bit strange because perch usually runs in schools but not trading today now try this one and that’ll Nene just to try a different presentation see if that’s will work better today but uh yeah so far we haven’t really seen any key today that’s all oh yeah well it’s a perch thank you fish all yes a lot of little perch we go I tried fishing tools to this structure here below this little bridge thing and we’ve had it perch let’s see if they’re more snide into something here probably a treat completely stocked so I guess this is a good opportunity to try this one again sly this one on let it go down like that and I’m gonna try to punch it the real second punch and we’re up why didn’t I have one of these before where have you been my entire life I could have saved hundreds and hundreds of lives over the years if I just had one of these or build me one of these or anything better late than never so I’m gonna paddle my way back now where long stick at form and then we’re gonna quit fishing and on the way back I’m gonna try this one flat nose meanie raid on a 21 gram jighead just I can make short casts fish it fast close to the bottom and bounce it really hard there are sand right in this lake and I haven’t caught the sander this year so it would be super cool if we could manage to do that but of course perch would also eat this one of course so let’s see [Music] Phish song feels a little bit better hold a big fish shell today oh it’s a small sounder look at this my first sander of 2019 hey awesome I put on this flat nose meanie with a 21 gram sprout they get with Sandra in mind and first take first fish is my first center of the year but would you have a look at this it’s a sander smashed its fat nose meanie and this is the perfect ending on this trip I’m almost back where I launched the flat form and I think this is the last fish of the day maybe we I mean we have a few more cast but I think this was the last fish awesome ending super cool hooked they’re so cool looks like dots on the same right so bye bye yes hey Saul hey Shawn nice fish again if he’s like oh and here we have a pike yay this means that we just finished our Stockholm Grand Slam my first one ever there we go boom pike on a hook so now we have Pike perch and sander and this is my first ever Stockholm Grand Slam I think I’ve done it once before but not in Stockholm but catching center pike and perch on the same day you know especially Sanders nothing I catch very often so yeah it was super fun and I think now we’re like you know 50 metres from where we launched the platform so I think this will be it for today but yeah this was perfect ending so much fun [Music] all right folks that was it for today and it’s time to head back home I have had a lot of fun even though the fishing hasn’t been that spectacular we didn’t catch anything in that small Creek but now I mean we caught almost like four perch one pike in one sander and just you know like two-three hours of fishing in a lake so I would definitely consider that an okay day in my book so I am super happy and I hope you enjoyed it as well actually it was a long time ago we did a giveaway so I thought it would be a fun idea to give away three of these retrievers from some ear I think they’re called Billy training company this one saved me twice today and I’m pretty sure that I would have lost my alerts if it didn’t have this one so if you don’t own one of these ler retrievers I highly recommend you to get one of these and to participate in the giveaway give me your most heartbreaking story of when you lost it learn in the comments below and I will pick a winner this week let’s say on the Friday so yeah give me your worst stories down below in the comments so yeah thank you guys so much for watching oh another thing those deeper seminars can now be found in a canal goddess webshop finally I use it all the time from my fill tube from the shore from the ice from small boats and it’s a very very good option if you fish from a lot of different platforms you know if I have a big bass boat or anything it might be good idea to have a more traditional summer but if you fish a lot from kayak flow tubes sure life deeper is a very good choice and this chair plus is actually super super good I’m super impressed by the details and also the battery time is actually amazing on this new version yeah thank you guys so much for watching make sure to subscribe up here if you haven’t already all the gear used in this episode can be found up here and feel free to check out our other videos down here and here so until next time bye it’s lines [Music]
