I haven’t been on pike channels for a long time, in the spring it’s good to fish there, but in the summer it is very overgrown with duckweed and mud, it is very difficult to catch in such conditions. Autumn has come, the temperature has decreased slightly, and you can go on an exploration to check how the local pike is doing. Light with wobblers in the car and food. Local friendly guards meet me at the place, but I have to go.
There is little water on the canals, the level has fallen strongly and in this regard, using wobblers with deepening will not work. Therefore, I decided to catch the old proven fighter Sprut Hikari Pop 3D 65 and I need to catch the new popper Aji Pop 75TW.
In principle, the pike showed itself immediately, if at least some of them were in the fishing zone, it reacted, smeared a lot, but managed to refill it from the second or third casting. The attacks are all furious and evil, although the spotty size was small and the whole immediately after the photo shoot returned to their native element to grow.
I walked a lot since “the legs are fed with a spinning player”, I caught a lot of promising places, but for some reason the pike avoided all the crusts, was more caught in an ambush by algae or in windows, while avoiding a place with green mud.
Poppers are kind of poppers, but they have different games and squabbles, and today a new bait worked. The game at Hikari is straightforward and the squelch is more sonorous, while Aji Pop on the cradle emits a soft gurgle and goes off to the side, this could be used by turning it in that direction where you need to bypass the grass or branches. So I caught them until the end of fishing, I did not even try to put wobblers with deepening because of the grass.
An experiment for me was the use of a titanium leash instead of the usual steel one, the advantage was a sufficient tensile strength and the most important plus is its inflexibility. Everyone is faced with the fact that after biting a pike the usual leash can be like a pig’s tail and you need to try to straighten it. With titanium, this disappears immediately, but there was also a minus in the fact that there were many carbines and fasteners that betrayed the bait too much freedom and she clung tees to the leash.
All the pike were shallow up to 400 grams and only one got caught, but for good fishing it was enough, took a walk in nature, rested from the bustle of work, and got a boost of energy.
