Each fisherman, entering the water, subconsciously takes into account different circumstances and risks. In fishing, you can’t do without risk, but the risks themselves are also different. The most undesirable risk is the risk of flying. By itself, the zero result at the end of the fishing suggests that … here, according to the results of the process, some mistakes were made that could have been avoided if … If yes, but it’s always after, but there’s also fishing experience to avoid the risk of flying during fishing. Of course, we must take into account the circumstances of “force majeure” such as the lack of bite or lack of the necessary bait in the arsenal, which could reverse the unfavorable outcome. Of course, if the fishing object is not in the mood, then it’s unlikely that you will change anything. Another thing is bait.
On one of the extreme fishing trips, and I was catching rainbow trout from me, and the moment came when the right wobbler saved me from the zero outcome, and also saved a fairly substantial amount of money. It's no secret that rainbow (we have a pond) trout is caught only in paid ponds. It is sometimes found in wild water, but these are runaways from payers and there is no system in such fishing, which is natural. Fish is fish, and in that fishing, in spite of abundant stocking, no bite was observed as such, which plunged spinningists into gloom. Moreover, there was at least some reaction to the float gear, but a complete lack of interest to the asset. No spinners, wobblers, and even silicone could not cause a reaction to the attack. I myself spent about an hour and a half on sorting out the options and did not even get at least some reaction. But, as they say, we are all strong with a backward mind, and I am especially so. I recalled the case of a hundred years ago from this fishing – when a sinking roll somehow made me like fishing. In general, there are not many sinking rolls, but I had an option, moreover, a tried one. Strike Pro Cranky 40 S. A couple of seasons ago, with летом ’getting достав’ in the summer on a sultry clear day. Naturally, as the last foul, he immediately went into action and opposed the recognized and already tested options like Jackall Chubby 38, Bassday Baby Crank and other similar ones, did his job, thereby saving me from zero. And it wasn’t even a matter of colors, but of properties, I set three color schemes and they all worked, but the floating version didn’t. And I can’t say that this was a complete solution to the issue, since during the fishing I had to change spinning rods and equipment on the go, but, nevertheless, the result was achieved.
Summing up the results of this fishing, I wondered – how many wobblers from Strike Pro do I have that have led to success this season? By the way, now it’s almost the end of the season and similar research is quite appropriate. If you take the full outline of the season, then about “on the circle” I get about 100 + fishing. This is if you take into account long trips – and there are many of them when you go out into the water several times a day or are constantly with interruptions in eating. And almost every fishing involves Strike Pro, of course, in cases where wobblers are used in general. Of course, there are other brands, but the share of participation of Strikes takes place and sometimes is not small. And if you logically approach the issue, then the motive is clear – no one needs empty baits in the arsenal, and even more so when it comes to long-distance trips, when the action itself is carried out for a specific purpose. On ‘’ distant fishing ‘’, people go for FISH, not breathe air and just rinse plastic, what's the point? Moreover, the long-distance trip is the money spent, and in vain no one needs to throw out the money. Hence the conclusion, it is clear and understandable – to reduce the risk of flying to the maximum, we need proven catchy lures that work in different conditions. As for Strike Pro, this brand of lures has a great many, but it is impossible to grasp the immense, so for now I am here for myself, while I have highlighted the four Minnow class leaders.
Strike Pro Inquisitor 110
In general, recently, and for various reasons, my interests have shifted towards the light class. Not that I completely ignore the impressive dimensions of 130-150 mm, just the main working set of my lures is in the sizes of 70-90 mm. But … again, there are positions that justifiably deserve attention in large parameters of 100 – 110 mm. By the way, it should be noted that "weaving +" sometimes helps out and great, precisely in critical situations. So, the Strike Pro Inquisitor 110 pair purchased at the beginning of the season in two different versions already had its purpose in use.
It is worth noting that the theme "Inquisitor" itself is quite interesting in its properties. However, one can often hear the opinion that, they say, this is a copy of ‘’ something there ’’. I read about the comparison of the Inquisitor with Orbit from Zip Bates and Rudra from OSPP, although as for me personally these are completely groundless opinions. In fact, by all indications, the Strike Pro Inquisitor is certainly an authentic bait with its own characteristics. In addition, these features are absolutely clear and understandable, you only need to pay them a little attention. Usually, all of my “fish moves” begin in early April. In these numbers, after the ice melts, I go fishing to the Lower Volga. This is where the story of Inquisitor begins.
/ Unlike big water, where you need to catch with a jig, there is another catch – these are eriks and channels with relatively shallow depths. Here, in those conditions, the Strike Pro Inquisitor 110 SP is king.
And I’m not talking about trophies, although they also happen, but I’m talking specifically about the number of captured. In this fishing, Inquisitor 110 SP really delivers both quantity and adrenaline. And if we talk about quality, then quality in this case is determined by the stability of the reaction of the predator to the bait.
. It is worth noting that this also applies to the SDR version. In general, in my fishing with wobblers, I prefer versions with neutral buoyancy (suspending). All other versions are also not excluded, but it just so happened that ‘’ neutrals ‘’ I prefer, or rather, “on hands”. And I must say that Inquisitor in its topic of suspender meets all the requirements that are familiar to me. As I understand it, the Strike Pro Inquisitor SDR 110SP is a later work than the 110 version I released in 2014. At least as a user, I began to catch Inquisitor SDR 110SP from the beginning of this, almost the past season, but I can say that the wobbler fully answers my requests. Moreover, on a trip to Karelia in catching pike perch he had practically no competitors.
Since this is a version with a substantial depth of 2.5 meters, there was a lot of work for him in the Karelian lake area. In addition, this version of the SDR 110SP, as it turned out, has some peculiarity – since it is a suspender, then in the phase of active wiring, for a long pause, it “raises” the predator from a solid depth. When this happened for the first time in a four meter pit, I noticed this, then I successfully repeated it in another similar situation, and then it went into practice. Be that as it may, the prospect of the Strike Pro Inquisitor SDR 110SP is obvious.
Strike Pro Jumper 90SP
In general, it is common for some fishers to choose a certain standard in lures. Therefore, one can often hear different opinions regarding this or that position in wobblers. Opinions usually come down to a comparison of various devices from different companies with this very standard. And Strike Pro's Jumper is no exception. I don’t know how anyone, but I personally wouldn’t go this way. It should be borne in mind that all of us (fishermen) in our activities, use the products of a different culture. All voluminous baits of other countries are made based on ‘’ your ’’ ’fish, and we are already forced to select the right options for our conditions and facilities. From here one can observe various debates and disputes – “catches, does not catch”, “better-worse”, and so on. In my humble opinion, it so happened that all versions of Strike Pro Jumper are suitable for our conditions with virtually no exceptions.
For the reasons mentioned above, I practice fishing in two sizes, these are 70 and 90 mm. By definition, all Jumpers are suspenders, which suits me and is very pleasing. From experience, I can say that if small ones work well in the lineup, then this is a guarantee that large sizes will be at least no worse. But I plan to enlarge in this line already in the future, but for now I have caught seven and nine for two seasons.
This season, from the very beginning, it so happened that there were exactly nine in two colors. Kohler # A230S, the so-called "watermelon" enchantingly starting the Volga company, tragically died in the fight against the size pike. Moreover, even a 22 cm leash did not help, the predator's swallow was so deep. So in the future I had to catch the Jumper 90SP in the color A142-264., Which in general did not affect the efficiency, this color is especially pleasant to me and not only with this wobblerm, but also with others. So periodically Jumper 90SP in color A142-264, entered into business and with a fair success. In terms of objects, they are different, but mostly they are pike and good perches. In general, I belong to the type of anglers for whom the color of the bait matters, so the next season the task is to make up for the lost “watermelon” and complement the arsenal with new items from the color scheme.
Strike Pro MONTERO 90SP
This glorious representative of the minnow class from Strike Pro actively went into business already in July, which I actually regret. As they say it would be better earlier, but it happened. Given his configuration of equipping with three tee fittings, 90 mm, it was not usual for me and, as it were, Montero was waiting in the wings until a certain point. However, the conditions dictate their own rules and when in the middle of summer, on the Oka River at a generally low water level, it was necessary to select an option for fishing in a moderate course, then its time came.
As it turned out during the process, three tees, this, in general, is not at all bad, and sometimes even useful. If you catch zander in the morning on stony braids, then its bites are sometimes not confident and selective enough, so that extra insurance is not even superfluous. In addition, there is one useful point in this configuration, namely ‘’ a game with hardware ’’. With the general properties of Montero, as a suspender, the middle tee can be removed, leaving two and then the wobbler acquires floating properties.
You can also increase the size of the remaining two tees, which also affects the properties. I personally regretted that I had only one sample, I often had to play with fittings in a similar way. And this is the case when I am well acquainted with the water area and knew when and what to do. Ideally, having two or three options in the box with different equipment, and as a result with different properties and colors, you can go to any position with a low water level. For example, on the Oka River, in my places, there are a lot of all sorts of bays, frogs and sand spits, and the closer to autumn and further, the water level drops, so there is enough work for Montero 90 in all cases.
Moreover, as further practice of this autumn has shown, small rivers are also not excluded. It’s another matter that in small rivers and ponds of the Moscow Region it’s a little tense due to pressure with the size of trophies, but is Montero 90 SP stably catching, is this not a positive moment in assessing its effectiveness? And of course, the task for the next season is already clear. When the clarity of the properties is already clear, then it is clear what needs to be purchased from the Strike Pro Montero line to achieve the most positive result in fishing in my conditions. This applies equally to both colors and sizes.
Summing up the results of this mini-guide, it will not be superfluous to note the moment that this is a partial review of the small number of Strike Pro baits that showed themselves excellently in the past season. When the season really comes to an end, then there will already be time to view other positions of this brand.
So far i have it
