The purpose of fishing was to thoroughly find and learn to catch in a strong current. The section of the river is just suitable for this, a clean bed and no bays.
In the morning I went along the riverbed upstream, periodically stopped at promising places, drew a map. In the morning there was no bite at all, although I clearly saw the fish standing behind the dunes at a fairly large depth. Attempts to catch here did not bring anything, there was not even a hint of a bite. 60 grams on the dinghy did not sink at all, and the SLRods Lex spinning test, which I had already overloaded, did not allow to increase, while the Okuma Epixor Xt 40 reel was still suffering.
Probably I would have skated all day without a result, until I saw a few spots on the screen in the side view, which clung to a certain elevation. I walked around the hill, switching to a high frequency for better quality, but I only managed to re-see the fish from 3 times. He made the first casts according to the classics, placed above the obstacle, and brought the bait from below. Yes, the wiring was extremely slow, the lure touched the bottom on the verge of perception, and there were no bites. I felt the cord rub against this elevation, and then almost immediately followed by a deaf hook.
He shifted lower, stood at the side of the channel, and made casts to the shore, so that the bait could be held right behind the obstacle or slightly at an angle. In this case, 60 g was already a lot, reduced to 37 g of the head. Two turns, a pause, two turns, a pause, two turns and someone hangs on the cord, a short dodge and a small pike.
Another throw and bite again, now small sudachek. It is surprising that they stand side by side, as pecked in one place.
More poklevok was not here, although once again twirled on the spot, the silhouettes of fish still stood behind the obstacle.
The next production was found after lunch, just a protrusion on the brow, which could be found even without looking at the echo sounder screen, as the water swirls were clearly visible above and you could already visually understand the anomalies of this place, again made a couple of circles to draw the depth map on Garmin GPSmap to clearly understand how to get up.
I didn’t change anything in the bait, the same Intech Slim Shad of purple color and 37 gr. Implement bite the first time failed, but the place noted.
Then I found several logs, but their size and thickness could not be seen and they did not create the necessary water turbulence and the fish did not stand there.
The way back was already on the other side of the river, especially there was nothing good there, a few holes, a block of logs, but everything was empty, even the fry was not.
He returned to the ledge, stayed a little longer, made several productions, and here is the first fish, perch, and the size is already valid.
Following a powerful blow and already almost trophy copy, and again purple.
Then more perches and empty bites, bitten off tails and gnawed cheburashki.
By the way, the springs helped a lot this time.
Fishing was a success !!!
