Infrequently on the river in the summer it is possible to find party meetings of pike, this is more typical for autumn. However, this time I got to a cluster in one shorted hole.
Spinning took everything underneath: Black Hole Hektor 802M with a test of 7-30 grams. As it turned out, they could well be caught on the very stubborn 130s.
So, the acidic “Tsu’oshkin Balisong” Draga 130Sp flew into the gap between the overhanging branches and was shut off with a pause of a couple of seconds. The very first posting brought the result: first I saw in the poles how the yellow side flashed, and the cord went abruptly to the side, after which the pike at 1350 was confidently pulled ashore on a powerful blank. Letting go … The second posting, again the blow is in the same place. This one pulled almost 1600 … As a result, for 10 postings I saw 4 hits, and I caught another one at 1400, and the last one came off.
In other places, there was no such activity of fish … The frog at 1650 was persuaded in another place on a small acid minnow Itumo Deep Spier 55 sp ..
Fishing went well, but still one event spoiled the mood at the end of the day. Reached his favorite place, began to slowly twist dip wobblers against the current, sometimes changing them to a jig. There was no bite for a long time, but I knew that there is definitely a predator here. And after half an hour of unsuccessful rinsing from under the crust, at first there was a cut of a dip with a 20cm string, which surprised me very much, and then this 3+ kg pike was added to Zipbaits Khamsin Dr. I had to force, so as not to put into the snags, and this affected the end of fishing, one of Khamsin’s thin hooks was unbent, and under the very shore the pike descended insultingly ..
Nevertheless, the fish bites, and it pleases, and I’ll leave the trophies for the autumn … I still have to chase the white one.
