In last two days / or rainbow trout from channel near Prelog

In last two days I was fishing on the channel near Prelog - Medimurje, and once again in Gorski Kotar. Channel in Prelog is known for rainbow trout, and it was full of this beautiful and strong fish till this year. This winter an flight of great cormorants landed to this channel and totally devastated and killed a lot of fish. Luckily some of trout survive this catastrophe, and you can try to catch them but quantity of them is not like before. We saw even few really big trouts but I couldn't catch them. I had one that broke my line, but Crni caught a few really beautiful bows.



Problem of great cormorant is really big here in Croatia. A number of this birds is big, and they are protected by the law. The damage they are doing to the fish population in lakes and rivers is unbelievable. This should be stooped somehow but authorities doesn't show enough will to do something. We can expect similar devastation of all kinds of fish in future, and this is very bad because many waters in Croatia are already empty, and those who are not, are on the target of this horrible birds.



Last two photos are from second day fishing in Gorski Kotar... Just because I like them :) Just to say that I saw one big brown in river Kupa. She took my jig for a second and I didn't have enough luck, but I will be back there...

Pa zar nije na tom kanalu Prelog zapravo najveći problem nedostatak vegetacije uz obalu? Ne znam, bio sam tamo jednom kao promatrač i jedino na potkovi ima našto drveća. Možda kormoranu ne bi bilo lako sve potamanit da se nekakvo granje nadvija nad vodom.
I pitanjce jedno; kojim objektivom si uslikao pastrvu iz gorskog kotara? Super si pogodio fokus, a i ono zamućenje svega iza je fantastično.
pozdrav

nedostatak vegetacije po meni nije problem. ribe je bilo do ove godine u fantasticnoj kolicini,a s obzirom da je rijec o drenažnom kanalu mislim da je nemoguce da se dopusti sadnja drveća. pastrva je snimljena sa canon ef 100mm macro objektivom.

Ljetna panula i rijedak gost

Ovog ljeta na Korčuli snimili smo rijedak ulov kostoroga na panulu živom lignjom. Štoviše, kostorog je bio u društvu još jednog kolege, a n...
