At the opening of the season, it was not possible to fully enjoy fishing for perch, since the quantity was small and the size itself did not please, since small pike perch compensated for what was happening. The next fishing trip was clearly planned with an emphasis on finding and catching striped fish. The long-awaited weekend came and we went fishing again, only this time we arrived in the village of Melkeni.
The feeling that every year more and more fishermen were confirmed by their number on the ice. But I am glad that today most of them catch on girders and / or catch a sorog in the tent, thereby increasing the chances for us to catch fat perches.
Where do we start looking? Sasha pointed at the smartphone screen with a link to the old depth maps. The bites started almost immediately, but mostly the perch was less than the length of the palm. There are a lot of ascents into the echo sounder, the perch is reluctant to attack the balancer, so I switched to the trolley, and the thoughts and desire to experience the novelty in my box did not leave all morning.
In the echo sounder, you can see how small striped ones take a long time to take a bite, leading upwards and the perch loses caution. Larger individuals, as a rule, ate Shprot-s without hesitation, a couple of times they even had to tinker to get the spoon – they swallowed it whole.
A couple of times I went to a place where, according to the words, for two days in a row, they were good at catching perch and pike perch, but in the end I only lost time, since there was no edible fish there. There were many empty holes, as the camera showed, and it is perfectly visible in the echo sounder, the perch often stood under the snag and swam a short distance from it, only to eat my spoon.
A lot of little things were released, I took some edibles home, because I love not only catching perch, but also eating. That’s all, All NCHNKh with respect, Sergey Egoist!
