Fishing an URBAN CREEK - does it hold fish?
Well. Good, morning ladies, and gentlemen and welcome back to a super. Exciting, episode I'm, always excited, when I go fishing but today, is something, extra, because there's one thing that I've been wanting, to do for a very long time you know on my way to work I passed, this super, cool urban Creek, flowing, below the highway and you know for years I've been thinking like does this Creek. Hold and a fish or is it just you, know load. Of dirty water I've, never seen anyone fish, in here and yeah. I never heard of anyone doing so either but this is what it looks like small. Creek going, through here and up, in under, the highway. Over. Here, behind me not sure how well you can see it but, this creek falls between two, good, lakes that I know hold fish so potentially, it could, hold some fish I think it's, late, September, like the last days of September as you can see the trees are starting to get all colored I brought my PI quad and to perch Robb's I think in order to catch something in this small Creek we're not gonna use Whovian Road sterically I'm thinking, more like Finnish fishing you know perch, maybe Pike maybe, sander who knows if, this Creek doesn't deliver at all I also have a float, tube in my car parked up here so probably this video is gonna be split, into two parts so say first some urban creek fishing and then we're gonna take the flow tube out into one of these Lakes if the creek fails so let's, just go down to the creek here and see what, we can do. All. Right so this is its let's. Look at this super cool spots I'm sure many of you fish spots like this on a regular basis I don't. I usually fish in like all, on islands northern Sweden, and those very, untouched, you, know beautiful in another way places but this is just so cool this stretch right here seems. To be quite shallow but I think that if we go closer to the, lake ends, it. Might be a little bit deeper but I'm gonna start fishing right in here wow this is so cool, I think, in order for us to catch something I think we will need to downsize, as. Much as possible I think. I'm gonna start with maybe we can go with this black one there small baby.
Dragon Gray donate five grams pro offset, which again should be perfect, starting. Off with my socks a shade perch addition 7 foot 3 up to 21 grams with this Revo MDX HS, one, of my favorite combos for you know not only perch fishing but kind of combined, Pike and perch fishing as well because, it's just so much fun to fight, fish and to fish with a light combo like this and, again since I have no idea what to catch I'm using this Wolfram. Leader from darts so they were Park proof and I haven't noticed any difference, when fishing for perch in at least one it's not ultra ultra, clear water but the wire leader would spook, the fish or anything like that but that's a challenge for it to do this to a perch, fishing wire. Versus, four-carbon leader all right so first cast in this urban creek. That's. Super, cool I. Feel. So much like youngbae right now it's, incredible. Looks. Like we're not having more than one liter of water max, at this particular spot but I need to eat right. I'm, gonna waste my time here yes because it's a cool spots. I, think, it's a little bit too shallow, we. Go all over today is gonna be to catch a fish no matter what. I. Think. We are alight a few, hundred meters from each lake you know like I said this is a creek between two lakes, yes. I think so. I, think that. The. Closer we go to the lake ends more, fish were likely, to see I hope. At least because this place was empty, all. Right mommy arms. Just. Like that train you're. Gonna move on in life. Let's. Try this spot for a few casts, the, reason why I go with this and black here baby dragon is first, off because it's the smaller and I want to downsize but, I also know that there are crayfish, in those two lakes that this tree connects, so I thought there's a chance that this river holds some crayfish and at, the perch would be in here to feed on them or something like that but yeah that's that's the, theory Oh. A. Sea fish I see, a fish okay, a small minnow thing, so. First, sign of life a few small minnows, you know 5 6 centimeters, maybe swimming around on here it's a little bit deeper it, feels like we're getting closer to, the fish. Oh it. Was a bike down there what's, a pike spooked. It was standing right below this. Mystery. Holy. Moly. Come. On pike revealing, herself again, a, whole. Man first. The fish spotted first predictor. Well we're slowly slowly getting closer to fish we started up there then we saw the bait fish down here we, saw a pike here we'll, probably have a bite down, there and catch far up there four times like that so we're making progress at least the. Pike you really gave me some hope and, all that we could catch. Something look. At this this, looks really good really nice and deep dry. Here so, here it actually looks a lot. Deeper and. Also have a lot more occurrence when, I fish this place I'm gonna make a few casts with a deeper in it just. To you know see the water temp and also see how deep it was. So. No fish here eater, so. You might have seen in earlier videos, I've started using this a Sharples, version of the deeper which has. Some more advanced, features. Compared to the earlier versions and I'll start off by just putting, it in the water like, this connected. To the phone the mode we want to be using now is the onshore GPS. Mode then. It uses the built-in, GPS, or the sonar to create the depth map for, it so now you see starts, reading this data and I cast it out into the current here and then it's, gonna be we, can let it drift just. By itself alright so this is what this error looks like we, have one meter of water you, can see some stuff on the bottom this is probably a vegetation, and debris, in water as you can see the picture is super. Detailed and that is because traditional, sonar sends out one frequency, beam with one frequency one, this one sends out three, different, frequencies. Simultaneously, which. Enables, it to create this super. Detailed, colors. The, same technology, is used in some of the you, know very advanced. Hummingbird, donors, that we have in our north sailor boat and the fact that they have this advanced. Technology in this, small, and inexpensive, piece, of device is just crazy thirteen. Point eight degrees and, now. It all would look like. Now. This is really, turning into a creek look. Get this. Still. Super, shallow, everywhere. It. Looks like the water level of this Creek is, way. Higher than this sometimes, of the air now, like I said it's the end of September, but. I would guess like during, the spring when all the ice is melting and, periods. Like that the. Water level seems to be at least one. One-and-a-half meter higher and then, I can. Imagine that. Things. Are a little bit different. Now. I'm all stuck that, I'm gonna go get a new little gadget that I brought for situations. Like this. So. This, right, here is a, super, smart cool thing called a lure retriever it's, something, that I've heard of I've seen people build these guys I've, heard of people using these guys with great success but, I've never done so myself, and now.
When I knew that I was gonna fish you, know this kind of place with lots of crap, in the water I thought that it would be a great idea to bring alert, retriever this is a ready-made, you know ready to buy version, from a lithuanian company called the super, ear and many. Of you guys are probably already familiar with this old gadget, I'm gonna show you how it works so we're gonna see if we can get my lair, loose, from, you know in the middle of the creek here so, it looks like this you have this one with I think it's 5 meters of line of course you can put on more if you like and, then you have this heavy. Thing that you would set onto your line let it lie down and, then it will crank, it and for the punch it loose or if you're fishing with a treble hook ler these, Shayne's might grab, onto the treble hook and you just pull it out but now we're gonna see here I've never tried this before like I said so this is gonna be super exciting, I've now lost so, many layers in my bass and, if this works, good I'm almost gonna start crying to get some you know all. The lyrics that could have been saved but, we will see you. Just thread, this one on to the line, and. Let this guy out. And. Now I will just let the guy down to learn and punch it. Huh. There we go like. Third or fourth type of punching, we, got it loose oh man. This, guy did the trick, exactly. As good as I hoped it would do it's a good idea in theory and like I said I know people who are using things, like this on, a regular basis, but, you know I had my doubts but it saved my there so damn. Fast, we're, gonna see if we get tonight more times now and we're gonna try again also, if we go to the float tube we might get into other types of snagging situations, but I'm gonna keep this one in my box and keep evaluating, this one because. Yeah, that was a very very good start these guys can be found on eBay for a very good price with the link in the description, below now also see, if we can get these warm, seem to the can we go this Web shop because, yeah. It's a very very good tool that I think that I'm gonna bring in my fishing, gear all the time they, come in a few different versions. I think this is one it's like 200, grams this is a medium, sized thing, they, have some tiny tiny ones for a smaller layers that wants to damage you know if you have small balls like crankbaits and then they also have like 300 gram, super, heavy-duty stuff for your biggest. Pike lers it will slide, down and punch your lure and rig super, hard due to all the weights but this is to immigrant version should be good all-around option, for Pike and perch fishing and, if you using treble hooks these chains might hook, on to one of your travel looks and you can pull but it's heavy line instead of your theme wire, or four-carbon, main line and, then it gets straighten the hook and get your lower back which, is good for you your wallets and for our waters, we don't want a lot of lures on the bottom or rivers, and lakes and archipelagos so, this one or you know anything like it it's a must-have for all anglers so. Now we're getting to the river mouth to the lake here and if. It's gonna happen in the river it's gonna be here because we haven't had any action, whatsoever, inside, the creek. Don't, oh I. Can't. Believe it I can't believe it well fish.
Holy. Moly. Felt. Like it hurts. Meld. Well. No, action, for me in the river or the river mouth fair one perch lost but that's all so when I'm gonna head back to the car inflate the flow tube and head out on one of these lakes instead let's, do this. Cheers. So. In this blue bag here it's something. That I've been longing to try since I first saw it on f6 this year in Brussels and. It is the new platform. Jr. from our friendship 7 past design. So. You guys have seen me plenty of times using the platform excel, which is the big big brother of the flat form family it's quite big and quite you know heavy so it's not the best one to you know carry to you, know remove flakes itself so they came up with this one the platform junior which is kind of a normal-sized, throw tube but you know same design same everything as the platform excel we. Never tried it some super super, Thomas. All. Right launched. And ready to go you look at its beauty so. Cool colors let's, have a seat. Feeling. Of freedom so. This is the lake I'm gonna fish and I've actually never fished, this place before either, so now, I'm all relying, on this one to show me where the fish are I forgot, to bring a lanyard I'm just going to put it on what I'm going and, just leave it lying. In the water like, that and. We have the deeper floating so now we're gonna open up the app again and we're, gonna change back to boat. Mode now it's gonna use the GPS from my phone the other way the data from the sonar so, here we can see it starts drawing we have three, point six meters and. We. Start drawing this map I think. I'm gonna leave this one down here keep an eye on it and use the oars to see if I can find something good looking. So. It starts to drop off now I have four and a half meters and here you can see it's great two different colors on the maps. So. This is the place for fishing, we've been paddling from here to here, the very close to the shore and we have almost 8 meters of water so this looks like an interesting spot. Definitely. Places. Like this could potentially hold both sounder, pike and, perch they. Could all bite my flat nose me. Fish. On fish, on. Finally. Almost, gave up there for a while but now we have the first Fisher feels. Like a little perch yep. That's. What we have. Do. You have no, idea. How much you mean. Beautiful. Little fish right. On this deep, drop-offs, from 5 meters now I was testing it along this drop-off and boom. So, this is what she looks like the first fish caught, from my platform. Junior, and the first fish caught in this film. After, many, many many hours I think it seemed like 2 o'clock or something and now we get the first fish so yeah. She, means a lot haha, awesome. Let's. Go back and see if there are more there. You go bye, bye. There. You freaking, go mission, accomplished. Oh it's. So good so perhaps we'll track the code a little bit swimming, fishing, this lake now for a half an hour an hour maybe and we came to this you know very deep spot deep close, to the shore and a very sharp drop-off and this, is where we caught the first fish so, yeah. I'm super happy awesome. I think we have like one or two more hours to fish so hopefully, we can catch a few more fish. Awesome. Gonna. Change over to spinning, combo with a me Channel real insects are odd reason, being that I have a four-carbon leader this one instead of wire so. Let's. See if this, will make in a difference. Because. They seem, to be quite tricky. Just. Look at these beautiful colors I. Love. The fact that autumn. Is here. Fish. On first cast with a spinning reel haha a four-carbon leader I wonder. If that's. Indication. That you, know four-carbon is really. Making, a difference. Boom. Fish. Number two on, this black, oak away perch monkey, shad well. Look at this colors. Of fall. There's. Beautiful, face, this. Beautiful, orange monkey. Shad and it's you know red fins on his perch fish, number two first cat's word for carbon that's crazy. Let's, try, a few more cats. So. Here we have three point six meters close, to eight. Meters outside there and then, we're fishing this drop off with, the yeah, this one monkey shad in, the 14 grams bro, do yet if I would choose one head wait for fall perch fishing it would have to be somewhere around you. Know 14, grams 10 10 15 grams somewhere it's usually good weights when, fishing on three. To six. Seven meters, oh I. Think I missed one. So. We're estranged, seems like there's, one part, here in one porch area but we don't get more than one two bytes at, a time which, is a little bit strange because perch. Usually, runs in schools but not trading today now try this one, and that'll Nene just to try a different presentation, see if that's will, work better today but uh yeah, so far we haven't really seen any key, today.
That's. All oh. Yeah. Well. It's a perch. Thank. You. Fish. All. Yes. A. Lot. Of little perch. We. Go I. Tried. Fishing tools to this structure. Here below this little bridge. Thing and, we've had it perch, let's see if they're more. Snide. Into, something here. Probably. A treat. Completely. Stocked so I. Guess this is a good opportunity to try this one again sly, this one on. Let. It go down. Like. That. And. I'm gonna try to punch it. The. Real second. Punch and we're up why didn't I have one of these before where, have you been my entire life I could have saved hundreds. And hundreds, of lives over the years if, I just had one of these or build me one of these or anything better, late than never so. I'm. Gonna paddle my way back now where, long stick at form and then we're gonna quit fishing and on. The way back I'm gonna try this. One flat, nose meanie raid on a 21. Gram jighead just, I can make short casts, fish it fast close to the bottom and, bounce it really hard there, are sand right in this lake and I haven't, caught the sander this year so it would be super, cool if we could manage to do that but of course perch would also eat, this one of course so. Let's. See. Phish. Song. Feels. A little bit better hold, a big fish shell today oh it's. A small sounder look. At this. My. First sander, of 2019. Hey. Awesome. I put on this flat nose meanie with a 21, gram sprout. They get with Sandra in mind and first. Take first fish is my first center, of the year but would you have a look at this it's. A sander, smashed. Its fat nose meanie and this. Is the perfect ending on this trip I'm almost back where I launched the, flat form and I, think this is the last fish of the day maybe we I mean we have a few more cast but I think this was the last fish awesome. Ending super. Cool. Hooked. They're. So, cool, looks. Like dots on. The same right. So. Bye. Bye. Yes. Hey. Saul hey, Shawn. Nice. Fish again if he's like oh and, here we have a pike. Yay. This. Means that we just finished our. Stockholm. Grand Slam my first one ever. There. We go boom. Pike. On a hook so now we have Pike perch, and sander, and this, is my first ever Stockholm. Grand Slam I think I've done it once before but not in Stockholm but catching. Center pike and perch on the same day you know especially Sanders, nothing. I catch very often, so, yeah, it was super fun and I think now, we're like you know 50, metres from where we launched the platform so, I think this will be.
It For today but yeah this was perfect, ending so much fun. All. Right folks that, was it for today and it's time to head back home I have had a lot, of fun even, though the fishing hasn't been that spectacular, we didn't catch anything in that small Creek but, now I mean we caught almost, like four perch one. Pike in one sander and just you, know like two-three hours of fishing in a lake so I would definitely consider that an okay day in my book so I am super happy and I hope you enjoyed it as well actually, it was a long time ago we did a giveaway so I thought, it would be a fun idea to give away three. Of these retrievers. From some ear, I think they're called Billy training company this one saved me twice today and I'm pretty sure that I would have lost my alerts if it didn't, have this one so if you don't own one of these ler retrievers. I highly recommend you to get one of these and to, participate in the giveaway give, me your most heartbreaking, story. Of when you lost it learn in the comments below and I will pick a winner this week let's say on the Friday so yeah give me your worst stories, down below in the comments so. Yeah, thank you guys so much for watching, oh another. Thing those, deeper. Seminars, can now be found in a canal goddess webshop, finally. I use it all the time from, my fill tube from the shore from, the ice from, small boats and it's a very very good option if you fish from a lot of different platforms you know if I have a big bass boat or anything it might be good idea to have a more traditional summer, but if you fish, a lot from kayak, flow tubes sure, life deeper. Is a very good choice and this chair plus is actually super, super good I'm super, impressed by the details. And also the battery time is actually amazing on this new version yeah. Thank you guys so much for watching make, sure to subscribe up here if you haven't already all, the gear used in this episode can be found up here and feel, free to check out our other videos down here and here, so until.
