Carp Lake - Lake BledNatural pearl, glacier origin, crystal transparency, which reaches 10 meters. Slovenia's tourist treasure the landscapes of breathtaking and the mountain peaks covered with snow. Tito Villa is not in vain here, as well as presidential residence for holidays - but we, the relatives, mostly occupied by the following: a large population of carp with a significant number of head over 20 kg. And all this on some 200 ha of water surface.
Lake Bled bought me a long time - and you? We'll see after the text.

End of the season I expected with impatience, the end of the competition season and abating business obligations with the arrival of winter. Since I was finished - fishing. Finally I was able to dedicate themselves and their passions, fishing for your soul on the great lakes. High flows have always attracted me because of its space, a peace that is always somewhere you can find, but also because of the challenges of hunting the big waters where it is frequently very difficult to meet their goals. My goal in Bled was a break up with this beauty and if it is possible to move my Bled a record that stood straight 18 kg.

Unfortunately Sirko obsessive personal problems, as well as in Africa, and in this way could not be with me. The Company will we as last year made Miha young? - Hope the Croatian fishing competition, which will pick up in Zagreb.

Fishing Mode:

Carp Lake - Lake Bled - Fisherman on the coastFishing for guests to perform with the daily permit which is valid from sunrise to 22 h and is valid for one stick. For an extra charge is possible to catch the maximum two-rod, and the best and biggest feature is the three days with two sticks, which is 110eura which is my choice. Game-keeper are kind and very agile, which is commendable. The catch is put back into the water - of course. Allowed the boats, oars and electric pente. Regarding the ban on fishing at night - not worry, very soon get used to the comfort of lodging at a motel and private apartments on the water, and rested in the morning, new challenges. Permissions and lodging you can do in the apartment Pletna located on the main road to Bohinj along the lake shore.

After a pleasant drive with all the comforts of a highway nearly full-length, we were in Bled, a day earlier than planned, fishing, before we remove it without rush tickets, accommodation and well-chosen position. The choice of places is vital for any fishing especially on large lakes, because very often what gives a basic prerequisite for success. The fact is that if you fish there, and the best tactics and bait it is impossible to catch.

The positions are chosen on the north side of the lake, the steep and inaccessible rocky shore below the old Bled castle. As always, we looked for peace, often running away from Tito's hunting moves and Presernova villas, where most anglers caught, often in large numbers. North side, illuminated by the sun offers the peace of walking trails which is here generally far from water. Each stick me in such a fishing story in itself and a separate location, different depth than the other. On this occasion I left a deeper site at 50 meters from the coast had Mihin stick where we are nourished on the field together should select baits for the shortest possible period of slightly more than the some 18 meters deep. Right stick to me was the shallow, right oblique, the last pronounced cascade with tree branches covered in inaccessible coastline. The depth was 14 meters.
The water temperature was 12 degrees during a sunny - perfect for November.

We were worried because it is quite common on large lakes, but we waited for the carp sniff the offered feast. The first excitement came just before the end of fishing in the 21.45 h time after violent wounds of the left stick with the system of nylon west between rocks on the bottom and after a few moments of contact with the fish in rupture of nylon. Packing our bags with the statement that we lost the first day. The apartment thin nylon (0.28), in which I have full confidence is being replaced in 0:35 and 0:32 thicker leaves. From tomorrow, hunt with an open buckle, where will the fish to lose every lead, but cause its lakes climbing the water column.
