We have a wonderful tradition with Yulka: on the second weekend of September we go to a recreation center located on the Vyborg Bay. It should be noted that the previous autumn trips were always carried out by us to one specific base, but this year, due to the reconstruction of the base, we had to look for an alternative.
Fortunately, back in June, we found a suitable replacement and, as it turned out, were not mistaken in the choice. The only drawback was a fairly decent distance to the pike, perch and mushroom points that had been developed over the years. Under favorable weather conditions, the journey on our boat to the faithful productive locations takes about an hour of precious time.
Mid September. I will not hide that I look forward to this time with great impatience, and my wife too. After all, the forest begins to hastily change into a bright autumn outfit and is replete with a variety of mushrooms. Water becomes colder every day, and predatory fish begins to eat actively. And if we recall our last September attacks on the Vyborg Bay, they often came out very rich and rich in mushroom and fishing catches.
But this time something obviously went wrong, at least in my spinning butts with toothy predators. The purpose of the trip was pike. Somehow, this season is passing almost without her participation, and, of course, I really wanted to eliminate this misunderstanding.
Guided by my past achievements, I focused on jig fishing and medium-large baits in places with depths from four to ten meters. And what to say? Hour after hour wasted. Knowing that the mood can change at a pike at any moment, I decided not to change my tactics and believed in a bite of a well-fed fish until the last cast. Eh, but the meeting never took place.
In general, for the day and the next morning I was able to persuade only a couple of small pikes, and not for a jig. For some reason, apparently out of boredom, I suddenly wanted to put out deep-sea wobblers. I will not dissemble, but after twenty to thirty postings this curious lesson turned into a tedious task, since the wrist was not at all ready for such tests. And so the idea worked, and I managed to catch another wobbler from TM Sprut – Hirame 90 SP.
This could end this report, or rather, not write it at all. But with all my desire to catch a furious toothy fish to ignore the perch pits, Julia and I simply could not and set aside a couple of hours to catch perch.
Striped did not disappoint and basically pecked very willingly, however, sometimes it disappeared from the points or simply picky. Perch preferred to eat small two-inch baits. In our case, the Sprut Hori 50 vibrotail in the GCMS (gold christmas) color scheme was perfectly tempting to attack. Of course, I sometimes tried to catch a snout on large rubber, but this was not particularly successful. The most severe minke whales were bitten exclusively with small silicone.
In general, rested wonderful. And even though I didn’t decide on this task, I’m not going to be sad at all. Because I know that the best, of course, is ahead!
