Spring Perch in the Bay
Picking up from the previous episode, Ville heads out on the lake with friend, Henna in search of some Springtime Perch. The water is a little murky especially around the river mouth so he decides to fish a few kilometres south at Kokkila where he knows the water is clear. Ville explains that in the Spring, prior to spawning, the Perch are less voracious feeders than in Autumn as they prepare for winter, so action is likely to be sporadic. However, there is a very good chance of catching a bigger than usual fish. Ville anchors the boat on a soft muddy bottom around 6m deep and they cast Jigheads towards the shore into around 3m of water and it isn't long before he has a nice Perch on his silver jig. Another fish follows but sport soon dries up and the big ones have eluded them, so Ville marks the spot on his fishfinder and looks for a new mark. The next spot Ville tries lies behind an island and here in around 15m of water is a shipwreck that Ville knows can fish very well. With no immediate success, they both change lure colours and Henna then Ville suddenly catch fish showing just how important it is to keep ringing the changes.
