Fish in tiny pond - Big one breaks line twice!

Anything to do with freshwater predators. Pike perch or Zander.

Fish in tiny pond - Big one breaks line twice!

**Video (2 min long) link below shows the action**

Last year when I walked around a public lake near my house that I have lived next to for all my life, I noticed a small opening when looking over the tree tops which got me interested. The whole area around the main lake is boggy and got very thick vegetation. But never the less, I tried to reach this area in hopes of finding some water. I tried many times without any luck since the bog got too deep and the vegetation to thick. But finally after 4 hours I found an opening! :D
The small found water is covered deep in the bog and the surrounding "ground" at the water edge is purely made up of moss that you sink into when standing still. I think the water has been entirely untouched since it was so hard to get to.
However, it held some fish! And they were strong!
All the bites from the big fish was like no other I have ever caught which also showed when the line broke twice...
Never had my line broke before and I have certainly caught bigger fishes.
I will be sure to go back for my redemption. :fish:

Thanks Shane! No, this time I did not use a wire leader. I did not think I would encounter such a big fish in this small water so I even forgot to bring one :doh: . But I will be sure to have a few with me on all my coming adventures :fishing:
