Rui Carvalho with Team Ocean Kayak sent this story from Portugal:
In the spring the big croakers enter the Tejo River. The fish weigh up to 60 kilograms. We usually fish with softbaits.
We catch these fish in 25 feet of water. They are very strong and fighting them in shallow water is very intense.
When I mark a fish on the fishfinder, my heart races. They can bite anytime!
