All of us fishermen like to fish in large and even huge ponds. For example, on the reservoirs, because there is a very diverse topography, large water, and there are beams in which you can hide from the wind, the islands, as well as a lot of the wide variety of predatory fish as such. So there was an offer to go fishing from a boat and I happily agreed. We left at night to catch the base in the dark, go out to the water and meet the dawn on the point.
At full speed we rush to a point and a motor of 9.9 forces delivers us very quickly, but we are not alone there already, the day off and the fishermen are present.
Since they were in the beam and the depths there were, on average, up to 6 meters, the fishing rod assembled its KGL742Deep light up to 10 grams, this model is liked by its softness just for catching perch, and we begin to methodically catch around. Changed 3 positions, then decided to go idle and look carefully at the echo sounder, like something we see similar to a fish, we anchor. A workmate almost from the approach to the 4-inch bait catches a good rookie who eagerly swallowed the bait, an excellent catch. Having rinsed several baits, I’m catching a cub whom I let go with the order to bring my grandfather.
The pike perch was not flocking and we moved more but along one location, 150-200 meters from point to point, looking into the echo sounder and studying the terrain. At the next point, we again anchor and do not immediately catch it at random, and this time it’s bigger with me, the scales showed 2.4 kg and showed a minimum resistance.
When the pikeperch exit ended and ceased to be caught, we went to the backwater to look for a pike in the grass, but she refused to be caught for a cut. Again we move and pass by two small islands where the depths are 3-4 meters and there is grass, we decide to try to bypass the relief of the island and check who lives here. And the inhabitants immediately responded and began to actively destroy the tails of our baits, there were hungry people and a wreck. We found a large accumulation of perch and the size was decent from 300 grams to 700.
We catch both and as usual we compare who is larger and on what type of bait, in principle, the perch ate all the proposed baits, but preferred a sweeping game of vibro-tail and natural color, for example, Sprut Hori 70 or Mizuko 50 worked for me. I did not try the iron and wobblers , although it was possible, but in such distributions it is difficult to stop and change the working bait to another.
When we caught up and the sun began to bake, we decided to go to the base. In general, it turned out to be a very interesting fishing, for me it was the first time fishing in such a huge pond and I liked it, it’s more difficult to search for fish and a good echo sounder helps to search, but there are more fish here. So we got a pleasure and plunged the boat into the car with all things and went on a long journey home, we will return.
