I want to learn everything to catch well from a boat to a jig on a large river with a course and many places. It seems to be looking at a map, there are a lot of interesting places, turns, depths, islands where, in principle, the fish should always be peaceful and next to it and predatory. So I’m trying again, I’m going to the river bank in the morning, quick gathering of the boat and forward.
Since the river is strong and flowing in some places, for example on the fairway, I took a spinning rod more serious than the Sprut Renzo 244 MH with a test of up to 35 grams, I can normally carry out the bait on a jet and also in calm sections of the river where there is enough cargo weighing 12-16 grams.
On the echo sounder I found a brow from two meters immediately to 5 sharp, and then a smooth dump up to 7 meters where vessels already go. I’ve gotten right on the catch and I’ll drag out, maybe I can find someone, there’s practically no fishing experience on the river. For a long time I caught a brow going far, in some places there are bends closer or farther from the coast, but almost everywhere it is flat. In one of such non-standard places I found a small accumulation of striped one that kept close to the beginning of the edge, small one and I don’t want to catch it with a powerful rod at all, you need to look for large fish.
I decided to radically change the place and moved to another one where I often saw boats, a large flat place with a depth of 3-3.5 meters. And here I am not alone, trollingists go to waste from their words, nowhere to go and I will try. I adhere more to the coastal zone and begin a massive attack with a jig, I searched for a long time and you can say I could not find it, 3 small perches and that’s it.
Maybe if I used a retractable leash it would be better, but I didn’t make friends with this equipment, I like jig more. What I just didn’t do, but there was practically no result, I changed the lures from large and bright to small and natural, those whom I managed to persuade took on passives Sprut Kiiro 3D 75 and Sprut Shiku 70. I caught the last whale on the edge and decided to finish fishing by waiting the barge's passage went to shore.
Apparently it has not yet been given to me to catch large fish on the river, experience is not enough and more often I probably need to try and look for interesting places. After all, everything comes with experience.
