In the meanwhile its been raining here in Extremadura and the lakes are filling up nicely, its going to be a great year.

Here are a couple of photos of the charts of water levels of the lakes.

Vertical Fishing Explained

Vertical Fishing Explained

Theres not much call for vertical fishing in the UK,  however here in Extremadura its a very productive and enjoyable way to fish.  
In the cooler months when targeting Pike, Bass, Zander and even the big Barbel, its a technique we use regularly as the predators are in deeper water. 

  For those of you that are not familiar with vertical fishing, here is a great video explaining the basics of the technique.

Winter fishing in Extremadura

We are managing to get the odd day out here and there, its our busy time servicing boats- vehicles and organising the paperwork for the new season. 

Juli as ever fishing for the big winter bass, lots of pike on vertical tactics.

An 18.9kg (41.6lb) Pike on the fly from La Serena to a local angler...

Lots of follows at the moment.

Paul was over again for Barbel fishing. He fancied a go at pike and Barbel fishing from the boat, he liked it so much he did 3 days. Considering he has never fished `vertically`he picked it up and had a few out. As he was alone, Craig managed to get a bit of fishing in too. They had plenty of fish,  loads of follows, but unfortunatley they were timid and struggled for descent hits.
