A few days back I managed to convince a good friend to do the long ride and go fishing at the Volkerak. It's a more than two hours drive, so it's always a gamble how the fish are holding up.
In any case, the weather was marvelous...... the fishing however, not. During the day with really concentrated fishing we managed to catch only two reasonably sized fish and around 25 small perch and miniature zander. The number of fish caught can seem quite appealing, but in the case of the Volkerak, size really does matter. Unfortunately these days do occur as well, we have to deal with it and do better next time. Tight lines!
