I love to read reports from the competition. This is an additional experience, and analytics, and excitement. And unlike regular reports, they are as transparent as possible. I will try to write the same 🙂
This Sunday was the championship of Nizhny Novgorod in spinning from the shore. This is my first official competition and I tried to approach it responsibly and spent all my free time in training. The rowing canal is an almost flat bottom, with an abundant shell rock and a wide plume of water lilies along the entire coast. I devoted the first trainings to catching water lilies, but if the perch was kept there, it was extremely shallow and finicky. But at long and medium distances the perches were larger, but their number left much to be desired. For that, pecked on almost any rubber up to 2 ".
I arrive at 6 am to check-in, right in front of me is a VW with Penza numbers. Three come out, these guys I was training yesterday. We talked, it turns out they need one person in a team, since only two are athletes, and the third is a coach. So I was accepted into the Bards team. By the way, the guys had not only a more impressive equip, but also much more experience than me. I used one Tict Sram JSR-610SS fishing rod, YGK G-Soul Upgrade PE X4 # 0.2 cord and her lover Okuma Inspira 20R We exchanged information obtained during training and decided to look for perch in the far. As it turned out, this was the only right decision, and all seven teams also came to him.
The tournament was held according to the 4X45 system: four periods of forty-five minutes, after the second period repeated draw. Only the number of fish caught was taken into account, perch of any size and pike from 32 cm were taken into account. Three fishing zones, 20 sectors each.
I start with the most studied zone A. I enter almost the last, but my sector is not busy. Start! On the first cast I catch perch. Great start! After a couple of casts I get a bite and a descent. Then another athlete occupies the neighboring sector on the right and throws it almost at my point. The judge says nothing, and on the next cast he also receives perch. I change the bait and immediately earn a second point. The sector on the left is also occupied and caught by 2 fish. Again I change the bait and catch the third fish, but it turns out to be a asp 🙁 I couldn’t catch anything anymore. At the end of the sector, Oleg Garanin caught 3 fish, I share second place with Roman. The teammates have mixed results: Sergey shared 1 place, catching 7 fish, and Herman didn’t catch anything, 49 fish, 6 people with zeros, were caught.
I start the second period from another sector, at the maximum discharge I get a couple of bites and a gathering. Heavy rain begins, the 3abros range drops by a couple of meters and I just don’t get to the point. I’m leaving at the very beginning of the zone, nobody seemed to be catching here. Roman has two fish in the neighboring sector. I catch perch, then another one. Roman is gaining a third point. I hook the fish again and already feel it actively shaking its head. I take out of the water – it's a roach, her mother! On the last cast, a perch pecks, but descends right at the feet. Siren. Oleg has only one fish, and in the first stage I occupy a clean second place, Roman first. The second period in other athletes was very different from the first. Only 23 was caught in the second. Now Sergey was already with zero, Herman had 1 point. Again 6 people with zero.
After the second draw, I get the farthest, most overgrown with a water lily and less familiar zone B. I go into the zone last and keep in mind that you need to at least get away from zero. I’m looking for fish for the sex of the period, I get only a couple of bites. I hear someone catching one fish after another at the beginning of the sector. Neighboring sectors are busy, of course. I get up to the nearest one and leave zero from 3-4 minutes. Despite the one-hour break, the nibble, judging by the results, only worsened. A total of 21 fish were caught. I am the fourth in my zone, Sergey is the first (3 fish), German took 3.5 place with 1 fish, 10 athletes did not leave zero.
In the last period I enter the zone one of the first and immediately get up in the sector where the distribution was. But deafly, in the neighboring sector, they catch 2 fish for a 2 "vibro-tail of bright orange color. But how so? Did the perch decide to radically change its preferences? I move closer to the beginning of the zone, somehow find a free sector. I catch an excellent large sailor on the first cast, which pecked right in front of the water lilies, when I was about to throw them in. In the neighboring sector, distribution from Dani, he catches four, I managed to catch one more.I take 4,5 place in the zone, Sergey is again the first and again with three fish, Herman has the second zero Again 10 athletes with zeros, of which four are 4 in zone A, including the future champion, Dmitry Sukhanov, while Mikhail Zarubin broke away in the same zone and made as many as 6 perches, thereby winning silver!
The judges considered the results for a very long time. But they could not avoid mistakes. For example, my results in the second round were confused with the results of the namesake 🙂 The standings were so dense that any perch could turn everything upside down. For example, if I had caught not 2 fish in the 4th round, but 3, then Silantyev Danya would have become the champion, and so he only has bronze. The teammate Sergei lost to him in terms of additional indicators and took an offensive 4th place. Oh, if it were not for the offensive zero in the second round … I am in the eighth in a personal, German – 13th.
In the team event, the Microjig Team (NN) won, the silver at the Sofa Experts (NN), and the team from the Barda (Penza-Bor) gets bronze! I am more than satisfied with the performance, the only thing that could be changed for the better was a more active search for fish. No more than 4 casts per sector, but the bait could not be changed at all and save time. All experiments came down to the fact that I eventually returned to the originally selected option.
