Focus on Angling – Carp Angling on a Huge Lake

We’re desperately trying to find huge lakes or wild waters for our films. I can safely say that Gyékényes is such a lake. It is more than 300 hectares big and has a crystal clean water. There are many features on the bottom and, what makes angling even more difficult, there are many scattered peninsulas…

The Asp

The asp can be found in all big rivers and stillwaters in Hungary (the Danube, the Tisza, the Criș, Lake Balaton, Lake Velencei, Lake Tisza). It is an open water predator fish catching its prey on the surface. The asp is usually 10-80 cm long, but some can reach 1,2 m and can weigh 12…

Small Wobblers

We’ve mentioned before that you can catch numerous species of small predators on ultra light tackle. You can use tiny wobblers, but small spinners, twisters, shads and spoons are also available to catch chub, perch, Volga perch, orfe, and trout. Personally, I’ve been experimenting with small UL baits which are suitable for fishing fast streams…

Lure of the Month: Salmo Rattlin Sting

The legendary model of Salmo, the Sting, has been one of the most popular sander, asp and pike lures since its appearance in 2001. The Rattling Sting, which is considered the successor to the old (floating) and the sinking version of the Sting, isn’t widely known among anglers. However, we believe that this catchy, suspending…

Focus on Angling – Let’s Go to Lupa!

With my colleague Józsi Ács we usually plan our summer sessions on mine lakes as in this type of deep water the heat is much more bearable, and the fish are more active. The water of these lakes is fresher and cooler thanks to the depth and the springs flowing out from the ground. I’d…

Feeder World Record and Dream Cast over 200 m

Excellent results in the Hungarian distance casting championship.   This type of national distance casting competition was first organized in Hungary last year. Distance casting with feeder rods as an official competition was also organized here for the first time. The categories refer to the length of fishing rods (maximum 400 cm and 430 cm) and the terminal…

Lead Wobblers Against Predators

If you want to try your hand at spinning, first and foremost, you need to get some basic equipment such as spinning rod, reel, line, and proper lures for the target species. As in many other cases, there are priorities. We could continue the list with boxes, carryalls, clothing, footwear, and all kinds of tackle to…

White-tailed eagle

The white-tailed eagle is Hungary’s largest predatory bird. The beak of the older eagles is yellow. Its chock shaped tail is white. The plumage of the white-tailed eagle is dim brown. The plumage and beak of the younger birds are black-brown. It flies slowly and majestically. Its voice, which is high and quick, can be…

My Favorite Summer Aromas

  Approximately half a year ago, in the middle of winter, I presented aromas that I prefer using during my cold water sessions. Back then I received many requests to present the aromas that I use in warm water. As I try to fulfill these requests, I decided to write an article on warm water aromas….

Big bait, big fish?

It’s not easy to catch a big carp on the feeder in spring. Although the carp are becoming more active, their appetite is still not the best when the water’s temperature is barely 10 °C. If you want to be successful under these conditions, you should choose your groundbait carefully and, last but not least,…
