Today after lunch I decided to visit a small chub rivulet again. The weather was a little gloomy, and there was a feeling that the rain was about to begin to drizzle. Today I decided to go over my already proven points as I wanted to pay a little attention to still unfamiliar places. The road through the forest was not the easiest.
I started fishing in the classics with various swinging baubles. The first hole is silence, the second is similar. I decide to try to put the lure and again catch the same second hole. A sinking minnie SPRUT TABURO TROUT of black color with a red tail is sent into the water. The second cast, slow wiring in the bottom layer, and suddenly a very powerful blow occurs near the stone. The fish spotted, not a very long struggle, and now a chub of a good size is already posing in front of the camera.
A start has been made, and very good. I continue to catch points with a wobbler, gradually rising upstream. Neat bites happen periodically, and the chub, apparently, did not intend to be active at all today. And again, there was a bite in a small hole, but this time the size of the fish was noticeably smaller.
Further fishing of points up the river did not bring any result, and I decided to send it down. The chubs are clearly on the dots, but they don’t react to the lure or the lure at all. Some when the bait falls, they just get shy and swim under the stones, some accompany the bait a couple of meters, and then lose interest in it.
When the main fossa ran out, I decided to start fishing more shallow areas. I would have to carry out the oscillating lure quite quickly in such places, so I decided to try to offer the fish a small floating roll of SPRUT TAMI CRANK all the same in black and red, and soon it brought a small result.
In general, such a combination of colors often helps me out. And in general, the dark colors of wobblers with a bright tail are greatly respected by many chubs. There is something magical about this that the lobastom likes. I tried to put a small popper for the sake of interest, and as a whole it brought me even two bites, but alas, both were single. Further, until the end of the planned route, I managed to catch a couple more small chubs on TAMI CRANK, and also got a couple of blank bites.
I can’t call today's exit particularly successful. Yes, the result was, but rather modest. Perhaps low pressure affected the bite, perhaps an approaching change in weather, in which case it remains only to make guesses. Nevertheless, even managed to pick up such a small key to the fish. It will be necessary to expand the arsenal of wobblers in black colors with a bright ponytail by the next season, this is clearly a chub theme.
