Thomas Lüdecke Jørgensen experienced 30 action-packed minutes when he fished Kastellet in Copenhagen recently and netted an impressive triple. Thomas reports:
– The day I caught the fish was the first evening with high-pressure since the heat wave started so I just had to go out. I started fishing for some small roaches with my pole rod before I moved on to deeper water to fish for pike. I chose to fish with small 10 cm roaches so that I might also run into other species than pike. After only a few minutes the first pike was landed.
Then I found my polaroid glasses to see if I could spot a tench. Luckily I could and after a short fight a beautiful fish was in the bag of the net. As I was unhooking the fish I could hear the line running off the wheel on the other rod. This resulted in a 1.1 kg. perch.
Congratulations to Thomas with the impressive triple. Sometimes it can be difficult to catch just a single pike on an evening of fishing so netting these three in that kind of tempo is not too bad.
Location: Kastellet (fishing card from Kastellets venner required). All fish must be released
Method: Live roach for the pike and perch and corn for the tench
