hiya all, wave.gif
what fish havent you caught?, i dont mean the likes of marlin, sharks etc but ones that are generally available.

me, never caught an ide, zander or pike (had a few jack pike snaffle my maggots)
i will hopefully get an ide soon as i intend to visit a couple of fisheries that have them.

what about you??

Main target this year is Zander with Martin.
Caught 2 types of cat with Newt, but need a Wels,
Golden Tench. looking for that 1
Sturgeon in local lake, but small and only 15 stocked, so thats for later
Ide (if I can find any out there?)
and apart from that (and I dont want to ruin the topic)
Lotsa PB targets!(They should be easier, some of mine are pathetic!)
Finally, Countries! Wales will be my 5th in a year!

Cheers

Ide are a nice fish to catch, if you can get them feeding on the surface and on the pole, its great fun, but be prepared for an aching arm, you have to loose feed constantly to keep then coming, but once youve sused that you will love it, seing fish break the surface for your loose feed around you float is heart stoping stuff, i havnt had a monster but one of our local lakes we fish has them to 2lb+, when you get them feeding, prepare for about one fish in every 10 bites, on the float, on the pole i tend not to use a float at all, fore ide, as they are very sensitive to any resistance, this method works well.

hope this helps

Well i've got 5 mins before my lift turns up so i'll be quick.

Just 2 species of the fairly common one's and that's catfish and sturgeon.

Although i would like to catch a Red Tench i dought there's much hope of that one as i've only ever seen 2 and 1 of them was in a pet shop.

Seams to me there is a common thread,

Has any one caught a Zander?

Phaps we should have a Fishin to target Zander - with a skilled Zander Angler

Who I dunnow, Where I dunnow, when I dunnow but there must be a time eand a place.

Great info, great guys, great fun, thats Maggot Drowners

Hello all

great thread ray.

Have caught all the popular species in ireland plus ghost,leather,common and mirror carp.(ghosties and commons in england and spain).



Have also caught barbel,catfish,dace and crucians in spain.

But due to the lack of these species here i have never had a chub,grayling,ide,orfe,golden tench or zander.


I am sick to death of bream and my target is to catch a zander on the ebro in july,and a black bass too.

ill just have to come over there sometime for a chub and ide.

Good luck
ADAM
