First Balkan Carp Feeder cup was organized at 21st of March on lake Grgeč in Žitište. Even it is early spring , weather was not favorable, it was very cold with temperature not higher than 4C with occasional snow. Fishing under this conditions was quite big challenge. However, lake was full, with 18 registered teams.
Competition was tight till the end. In total catch was 20 fishes with 110kg. While biggest fish had 9kg
All anglers had same comment – fish was very strong which resulted that couple of fishes was lost and that catching 5-6kg carp was real pleasure. Generally, movement of fish was modest. This is expected considering that temperature was very cold. Winners had 3 to 4 fishes which they caught at the middle of the lake
Specificity of this lake is existence of several island fully covered with reed. These islands are very good hiding place for carps and anglers are trying to catch the carps either close to the island or in the space between. With this tactic it was necessary that to be very carful because any mistake in the throwing or any sudden change of wind will result that hooks finish tangled in the reed
Even the weather was not ideal for fishing first Balkan Carp Cup was successful and congratulations to the winners FT BJ-OB (Rajin, Savić) winners in Sector A with 19kg and biggest fish on the lake ,9kg. FT Senta (Holi, Galambos) winners in Sector B with 16kg
