A tradition has developed in our company “Prostor”, to open every summer fishing season in Finland on Saima. Svetlana always provides us with the same, conveniently located cottage jokingly called the “Director's” – because next to it there are 4 nearby points where a trophy pike is caught, and the holes in the water area are rich in pike perch.
On Friday evening, we stay in place, armed to the teeth with spinning and luggage of all kinds.
We collect superheavy trophy kits for carpet bombing of the water surface with jerks, sweaters and large silicone.
Evgeny Anatolevich collects a set: Patriot PikeHound ~ 120g 239cm, WFT BC King, WFT Strong 32Kg. I love a little more gently: BFT Tailgunner ~ 80g 232cm, BFT Instinct x7, WFT Strong 32Kg. We load onto the boat and rinse heavy lures into battle. A couple of hours of fishing – to no avail.
At one of the places, Evgeny Anatolyevich flies in with a good blow on the StrikePro Pig Shad JR 110 cm of fishing happiness – a 10.4 kg toothy pike. A prolonged struggle, the mother surrenders and parks in the net. Reliable gear and competent vyvazhivanie do not leave her a single chance! Photo session and release of the first fish of the season.
They decided to devote the second day to catching perch on ratlin, in favorites there was Beflap 75 in natural colors. There were many poklevok and captures, but no good specimens came across.
We walked along the spawning grounds of a large pike with swimbaits, the tested points were silent, the laces do not count.
A little discouraged switched to catching a peaceful fish, fed the point in front of the cottage. For several hours they caught good bream and ide. It’s funny that bream didn’t like to eat Beetle Busters on the well-fed point.
In the evening, having flooded the Finnish sauna and plenty of bathing in the crystal water, Saima mentally steamed, cooked fragrant ears and smoked large breams.
Rested on this short trip, as always, excellent and with a sense of accomplishment, we set off on our way back.
