FIRST ICE, FIRST LEAD, MORMYSHKA are those words that make me tremble as if I’m 10 years old and I’m waiting for a gift from Santa Claus))
Now, of course, you no longer believe in Santa Claus, but the zhor of fish on the first ice is a holy faith)
Morning, -5 on the thermometer and we are near a reservoir with ice !!! The ice is not the safest, from 2.5 to 4 cm and the crackling is such that all the muscles contract from the tension)) But overcoming fear I make the first holes and on the third hole I see a bite and a lively perch on the ice! Hurray-opened !!!
Then, as the people started to go, it seemed that there was a gathering of fishing lovers from all over the area)) The crackling on the ice was mad, even the water in the holes poured out! Everyone was counting on the crucian carp, which was actively pecking last year, but so far it has not responded in any way. As a result, after an hour, almost everyone left.
The perch pecked carefully and not in all holes, there were good specimens that tore the jigs !!! As a result, I caught 15-20 measured perch pieces. I caught 0.69 on the fishing line and 2mm copper oat jig.
All NHNCH !!!
