    Russian President Vladimir Putin had a successful fishing trip in South Siberia, which proved to be more exciting than his previous fishing experience, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Peskov said he does not know precisely whether Putin caught more fish than in 2013, when the president caught a 21-kilogram [over 46 pounds] pike. In 2013, Putin caught the huge pike from Dokpak-Khol lake in the southeastern Russian Republic of Tuva.

    "I do not know, I think no [more than in 2013]. But it was even more exciting than before, we will tell about that," Peskov added.

    "[Putin] managed [to catch fish]. I think in a few days we will even issue some information or images on the issue," Peskov told reporters answering a question on whether the president managed to catch any fish.

    Later on Thursday, Putin will hold a meeting in the city of Blagoveshchensk on the implementation of investment projects in the Far East Federal District. According to Peskov, Putin briefly went fishing in boreal forests of South Siberia before the meeting.
