alqueva-trip-catch-3-2013We have just managed to get in a short fishing trip at the end of the season for customers Mark Perkins and John Edwards. The Portuguese fishing season is very much in line with the old UK coarse closed season, with no coarse fishing again now until mid May.

The weather was gale force winds, but this did not effect the fishing. 1st day we arrived at the dam in the dark and put around 10kg of particle feed into a swim in preparation for next day. Following morning after a great evenings rest, we arrived around 9am after abreakfast to find the area full of feeding fish!

The sight was incredible, there were shoals with hundreds if not thousands of fish under the dam wall stretching for several hundred meters. The fishing was non stop all day with estimated 60+ fish to 12lbs. This continued till the end of this trip, fabulous fishing, shame it had to end.

The new season can't come soon enough with us all wanting to get back to fishing for these super fish that are growing so fast now and piling on the weight. Its been a long wait or the quality to reach this level but I can sense that its all been worthwhile, roll on next season........!
