A trip with my family to my mother-in-law was planned, and of course, I had to wave to the reservoir for fishing, only this time around a predator with a boat, a motor, so to speak, in full combat readiness. Barely put everything in the trunk, and go on a visit.
In the morning rise, coffee breakfast and go. Arrived at the city beach, here both the car under supervision and the boat is easier to launch. He began quick gatherings and rather on the water in order to break in a novelty fish search, recently acquired a sonar Garmin Striker Plus 7sv. I’ve set it up a bit, I can already basically determine the fish, but I still have a lot to learn and preferably on the water.
There is silence on the water, the sun is shining, beauties.
I go to the rocks slowly glancing at the screen, as expected the bottom is relatively flat, but I found an old channel that is about 1 meter deeper, the echo sounder shows a flock of peaceful fish in large numbers, which means that a predator should graze somewhere nearby.
He was anchored between a rock and a channel in order to catch both depth and try to throw to the shore. Not immediately, but I managed to catch a piglet and catch a pike on the Sprut Kagami 70 vibro-tail on a double, it was my mistake, I pulled the pike to the boat twice and it safely got off the hook, although it cleared well. Of course, I equipped the same bait but already on an offset hook, but there were no more bites from the channel. He began to catch the shore with a dump, there was caught a small perch and already without descents.
He traveled a lot in search of white fish and tried to catch shepherds in the same way, there were also captures of a predator, but not everywhere, more at depths of 7+. I tried to move into the grass in search of a pike for a popper, but everything was quiet there without bursts and did not even drive the fry, which was dark there.
Then black clouds came in and I had to go ashore with a bullet, there I was waiting with the boat under a canopy for sunbathers.
An hour later the rain stopped and again into the water in search of fish. He went back to the channel and casts to the depth, the sun was gone and decided to put acid and even with the red heel of Sprut Kagami 90 and it immediately worked. The pike attacked powerfully with a blow, and I properly did the hooking with the rod and here I can get off without any options, I accept the beauty. Then there was bite again and an annoying cut of the bait, I also took the Sprut Nukki 90, which was acidic but different, although there was no red heel, there was still a catch of pike.
Then a cloud came up again, a strong gusty wind blew, which lifted a large wave for my boat and I hurriedly went ashore.
Fishing, although it was extreme, it still turned out to catch fish and look at it through the echo sounder screen, and on the side scan you could see a single pike, long stripes standing out at the bottom. Spinning used up to 21 grams of Renzo 244 ML to calmly catch weights of 16-20 grams, with a Keitaro UL 0.08 braided cord. While collecting the boat, it again turned bad and the sun began to peep, but it was time to go home to my relatives.
