In the previous winter fishing seasons in Kazan, I was looking for where to catch pond rainbow trout from the ice. There are about five such reservoirs near St. Petersburg, and probably about twenty in the Moscow Region. And good luck, last year a paid pond opened with the possibility of catching various fish, including trout. It is called Fisherman’s Fortune, located near Kazan in the Sokurov area, on the territory of the Fish Biosphere Fish Complex.
Fishing for trout from the ice is fascinating, and due to its brisk character and its weight of about a kilogram, it also has its own characteristics. In the winter trout is caught on shrimp, trout paste, silicone and, of course, on active lures: balancers, rattlins, winter baubles. The peculiarity is that with resistance at short distances, if there is no flexible fishing rod or clutch on the reel to help, the trout often breaks a thin line, bends or breaks the hooks. So I had when plucking 1.5kg trout in the Leningrad region. Here, the weight of fish released 1-2 days ago was from 0.7 to 1.2 kg. And I equipped a fishing rod with a simple plastic spool fishing line SPRUT SKYLINE OXIDE ICE TECH PRO 3D with a diameter of 0.255 mm, the strength of which I hoped would be enough when fighting.
I decided to start fishing on the winter lure SPRUT NORD EDGE AGATHA 35, copper with a red pebble. The spinner is 3.5 cm long and weighs 7.7 g, which I specially took for fishing for trout, because The planning game of the wide spinner should have interested the capricious trout, and the strong hook was suitable for forced survival.
Having caught the first trout at the bottom at a depth of about 2 meters, I gave my sister a fishing rod, and he went to prepare another remnant aside. Agatha lure fishing has proven to be straightforward and productive.
Trout greedily grabbed the bait, and reliable gear allowed to force the game.
By the way, I already mentioned that the fishing line was dark and iridescent and was clearly visible on white snow, which was convenient, especially in the wind.
The tackle turned out balanced, catchy bait, and a reliable fishing line.
A delicious fish has become a good addition to the dining table. I wish all the fishermen and fishermen neither a tail nor scales!
