Adapt to the situation

The same place on the river at different levels of water, requires a different approach when fishing with lures.

One day your shallow diving lure will perfectly stay and work in the water, causing the fish to attack. But the other day, after hard rain if water level is higher for 30 cm, you need different approach and lure to fish with. This situation requires medium or deep diving version, that will go deeper and will not be thrown out at the surface by the river, but will stay in the rapids and produce right lure action. DUO Realis Shad 59 is great bass lure, but will give you a lot of pleasure when fishing in the river rapids, like I’m using it for big barbel. Realis Shad 59 is produced in 2 versions SR (shallow) and MR (medium), and there is DR (deep) diving version that is 3 mm longer, so it has name Realis Shad 62 DR. With the different sizes and types of lure beak these lures will give you ability to lead them through different depths of water. Also, they are suspending and will give you chance to keep them in the place for a while, waiting for the fish bite.  At each potential place at the river you can try all 3 lures to see which one fits the best for this situation. Mostly, these lures will cover a wide range of situations you are facing every day in bass or other type of fishing, and they will react to the rod work you are doing. Recommended ways of giving the action to these lures are twitching with pauses, slow and fast retrieving, and keeping them in the one place at the river using the river speed to make them live.

Kayak bass fishing

Last Sunday I spent a nice day fishing at Crkveni Bok lake near Sisak town. While I was fishing from kayak, Dalien and our host Alija were fishing from the boat. The day was sunny and the most of fish I saw in the shallows and in the weed. They were feeding on the edge of grass not missing the chance for good food eating mostly small fish and frogs. The best approach was to fish with unweighted silicone lures mounted on worm hook (mostly I used Sakura Slit Shad 7,5 cm), even I had nice fishing on top water lures like Duo Realis Popper 64. The most of bass were aggressive and they attacked lures that I ran quite aggressively and fast for bass fishing. Mainly fish were smaller size, up to 35 cm, and rarely we have some around 40, but the quantity of caught bass was quite impressive. At the end I have to say thank to our hospitable host Alija, who was guiding us on the lake and prevent hunger and thirst in the tired anglers. Thanks a lot, and I'll be back with my kayak! Just to mention that this weekend Croatian Bass League will be held on this lake.
