In search of the coveted trophy in the waters of the city, I wandered with a feeder to the Middle Nevka. Such a place simply pleases the eye with its landscapes and architecture. And to spend here a few morning hours with gear is a pleasure.
The weather in the morning pleased the peering sun and calm. A sleepy guard peered periodically from the nearest mansion, lazily looking around the orderly rows of fishermen.
I have little experience of trophy fishing with a feeder. Somehow he successfully caught bream on lakes in Finland and several times in the Kama Estuary they drove common carp and scavengers. Therefore, I did not use the large weight of the feeders on the rivers, up to a maximum of 50-60g. Another thing is Neva and its branches at the mouth. The current is strong and if you look for a fish closer to the fairway, then the feeder is needed more powerful. Therefore, taking with me the heavy feeder MAXIMUS INVADER 4.2m with a test of up to 150g, I set the most powerful red quivertype with maximum test.
I had a more powerful feeder coil, but I wanted to check whether the new Black Side Guardian Feeder 3500 FD cope with the current and with great weight with the budget feeder cord Power Phantom Water Snake # 1,2. Everything worked out with a bang, the reel pulled, the cord did not break, there were no creaks or beating.
I already fished with this kit in the Gulf of Finland and confidently made my way through the coastal seaweed with fish. I just purchased an EcoPro comfortable and lightweight tripod for concrete embankments.
Several fishermen sat on the shore in the hope of meeting a bream. A neighbor ten meters from me managed to park a couple of scammers. The rest were content with ruffs, perches, bleak, and all flew pretty good carpits.
In moments of calm, I tried to lure the fish at a close distance with a 6-meter fly fishing rod. But there was a trifle fiddling. The same happened with the neighboring fisherman at 11 meters with a plug.
The bait was used by the red Dunaev Premium feeder river with bream molasses and strawberry syrup, dip with anise, coconut, chocolate, corn. In short, a sweet table. He added maggot, and a cut worm, and bloodworms to lure. Caught on them. But in response, he received only peppy pulls of weighty carp.
Anyway, I think fishing is successful. I tried to catch a new feeder in a strong current. Even a powerful top sensitively practiced bites of medium-sized fish. And although he used the feeders only up to 100g and they were a little demolished, but he caught his fish and gave it to the delight of the donor for live bait or for slicing at random. I wish you all reliable gear and no tail or scales!
