Another pike fishing on a small river near Moscow … If the last time I went with the “balisong puller” up to 40 grams, now I wanted more delicate fishing, so I took a Black Hole GF 240 jig spinning with a test of 5-25 grams with an eye on relatively small and light baits.
The first step was to go into a hole covered with snags with a depth of about three meters, where the last time I found clusters of pikes with the help of 130 wobblers. This time I started throwing a jig there … The 4-inch Avaruna immediately started to bite, but one single offset hook detected a pike much worse than three wobblers.
The first pike immediately after striking pulled into the underwater forest, planted a hook sting in a log and went down there, after which I had to unblock the offset. The second bite in milk. The third is a shuttle gathering of the order of a pound under your feet. That's all, the toothy on the point completely lost interest in my bait, no matter how many times I would not return there after a while …
After that, he began to catch the area heavily overgrown with grass, where the predator was hiding. I decided to handle it with unloaded rubber, put a replica of Avaruna from Kosadaki in the amount of 125, and began methodically throwing out the gaps between the grass … After a few postings with glasses I saw the exit of the pike, but by. I decided to torture her, and lo and behold, she was added and successfully detached from the outside of the jaw. I let go and continue to catch. There was another good bite, but only gave in the teeth, and then silence …
I’m going to the next point. There, a good pit borders on the course and dense thickets of grass. One problem, from the shore to clear water free of grass and snags, about 10 meters. I start jigging the most delicious five-copeck coin … I exhausted the bait in front of the grass and notice the exit, I did not manage to grab it. It is necessary to add a compiler, a completely logical idea. And so, Kosadaka Convoy flies to the same place. Trembling wiring in the style of derg-derg brings a powerful attack in front of my eyes and the violent resistance of the pike, which instead of the expected “under a kilo” turned out to be “under two”. The first jerks were very powerful, but then I decided to hold the friction clutch and drag it ahead, collecting all the “thickets” in my path … By some miracle, I managed to conceive, and even “circled” a huge log near the shore. Spectacular candles underfoot did not save the pike from the photo shoot, she held on securely, for both tees.
In the same place, just downstream, another one in the area of a kilogram pecked at the same Konova, but could not be hooked.
Finally, I decide to go for a jig, namely for large tires from Bass Assassin in the amount of 5 inches. At the boundary of the currents I get an excellent bite, but I had to forget to tighten the friction clutch on the reel, just a child’s mistake. Facepalm, as they say. As a consolation to me, the river sent a perch to the same 5-inch rubber. I don’t know what he was counting on, attacking such a large prey, but he hooked himself under a gill cover.
On this biting stopped and I decided to finish fishing. There were plenty of chances, only a small part was realized, but emotions were received and there is a result. In the near future I’ll be back and I will punish the toothy pranks as they should, they will not get away from me anywhere.
