June trophy. Pike on 7KG for easy spinning.
Finally it happened. In my hands, I finally managed to hold the fish over 5 kilograms … how it was – read!
I decided to try to catch a toothy in this inadequate weather. Assembled a set of gear, bait, boat; and drove to the pond, which is extremely naughty at any time of the year. And in the summer I never touch him, but there was not much time, so the choice fell on him.
It was not possible to immediately swim out onto the water, I found a cloud that brought with it rain and hail! About an hour I just sat in the car and waited until the apocalypse was over.
At about 2 pm I nevertheless swam out into the water and began methodically treating familiar areas with jigs and wobblers. As expected – total bolt. Not a single touch on any bait. I decided to work more closely with wobblers, in particular surferostniki. The wind drove me into the farthest part of the lake, there I managed to catch 2 small perch on a small bowl. Well, it's not serious, I came for a pike.
I swam to the place where the lake turns into a river, I know there is a beaver's hole there, but I haven’t seen the beavers for a long time, can anyone live there now?
And I was damn right.
I put a fairly long worm from Crazy Fish. By the way, the history of its acquisition. At the exhibition they chatted with Vasily (Sibiryak007 Vasily Poplygin) and I had the opportunity to take a couple of packs of rubber as a gift. My choice fell on a set of different colors of worms – Active Slug 4 inches and a couple more packs. I thought then that he should catch a pike. Yes, and from the very VASILY. Karma favorable).
On one of the casts a light touch – the worm is slightly pressed … hm. Contact. It is necessary to throw one more time. Slowly dragging the bait at the bottom (the weight of the load is 4 grams), and then there is a light touch again, then hooking, as if into a log, which I actually thought about. But the log slowly and slowly floated …
Having sailed on me like that and on, I decided to raise a fish, something painfully volatile, it behaves. Ha. It was not there. As I was lifting, the stick simply bent, bent, bent …. And she started to crackle a little. Then I realized that something had gone wrong and there clearly was not 2-3 kg. And the fun began. The fish rolled me along with the boat all over it. 2 times went to the dead grass … at this moment I thought that everything … I had to pull the cord! .. and it was possible.
My poor wand … Maximus Gravity 22l 3-12 test was subjected to enormous loads for her. Pike went under the boat and made jerks, and even gave a couple of candles, barely had time to put out. The friction squealed like a victim … and finally I brought her to the boat and … I understand that I don’t know how to pick it up. The hand cannot be grasped anywhere, there is no landing net or lipgrip. And the ride began on a new one. It is necessary to exhaust the fish finally. All landing took 10-15 minutes … when the pike was completely tired, took a risky action. He threw the darling on the coil, put the stick away and stranded the monster in the boat with both hands …
That, his mother, is a victory! New record taken in the hands of fish! Yes on a small lake in June ..
A normal photo did not work out, did not fit into the camera of the phone. Scales showed 7180g of happiness.
For 10 minutes I resuscitated the beautiful woman, because she was exhausted considerably, but still came to her senses and swam away to her native fossa.
After sitting a minute with shaking hands, silently neatly folded things and swam home.
This is victory…
