"Foam rubber wind, foam rubber snow
And the foam rubber check punched in the store,
Foam rain, foam rubber,
Foam rubber sun, foam rubber sunset,
Foam Cat, Foam Whale,
Foam rubber laid under the door dynamite
Foam rails, foam tram,
And on the street there is a foam rubber May …. "- – Double Game.
In the yard, of course, not May, but August, but it was these lines from a childhood song that were remembered today. Of course, I was always skeptical of the stories that fish are caught only on one bait on a certain day and completely ignore the others, since on such days I always found an alternative bait or equipment that would work no worse. But still I want to admit that such days sometimes happen.
It would seem like an ordinary day, the task is simple, to draw a new section beyond the island, to identify promising places. We left the water late, I don’t like to do that, it’s better to appear on the water in the dark and get on the morning exit. I changed the cord on the reel, put # 1.2 Intech Exseed in the hope of reducing the weight of the goods, since we still have a strong current.
The site turned out to be boring, a scythe without fry and fish, no snags at all. A couple of structures and a small roll. Catching started, as always, with Bait Breath T.T Shad silicone, proven and catchy, but today only small ponds reacted to it.
By dinner I find an incomprehensible structure, either plates, or old piles, I try to catch from above, then from the side, there are no bites. And when there are no bites for 2 hours, you must already change the bait, this time put Lex foam rubber.
Immediately a bite and a completely valid bersh on 700 gr.
I changed the angle of the wiring by moving the boat closer to the shore, immediately in a row a few standard gadgets and a powerful bite at the end of the boat itself, even the almost tightly tightened clutch on Okuma Epixor turned around, but the fish left.
Foam to shreds, pieces of metal torn from a lead head … ..
There are no more bites here.
No more interesting places were found, so I just went along the edge towards the base. I noticed a flock of lumps behind the dunes, began to check with silicone, there were no bites, put on foam rubber and again several fangs responded to the bait.
And then it's generally interesting.
I find the snag on the edge, and in a familiar place, but I hadn’t noticed it here before. I got up in the classics in the depths opposite. I cast a foam rubber, immediately bite, but by. I change to silicone, 5 postings and no bites. Again, I change to foam, almost immediately bite and medium-sized puppy. I change to silicone, there are no bites.
I change to foam and again bite and another pike in the landing. As a result, I changed the bait 6-7 times and caught 3 pikes from one point and there were 2 more bites on the foam. Why didn’t the rubber work? Although I clearly passed through the snag, and the number of casts did much more with a vibratory tail, it remains a mystery to me. It should be noted that the activity of the predator was above average.
Fishing was a success !!!
