First results and a respectable pike

by on May.26, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

1.3kg pike on Tumsupe riverSo much effort on previous attempts and no results. Today it was rainy, but warm and no wind and pike liked it. Pikes and perches were moving today. First pike came in 5 minutes, but was a micro-size, released. Another 10 minutes and the second one in the boat, much bigger, but after a little hesitation still released (about 700g).

It was a break then for some reason, so i switched to float rod and it started raining. Found a nice place with respectable rudds and roaches and landed few, still no tench this season.

Switched to spinning, and bingo first bite on popper this season – but the pike missed. 🙂 At least some adrenaline boost. 5 minutes later on spinner another 700g pike, decided to keep it, just in case.

4 pikes, biggest 1.3kg, 59cm (2 released), 2 perches, roached and rudds

Third fail on Tumsupe, fourth overall

by on May.20, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

After Kanieris, still decided to try my luck with float rod on Tumsupe river, today was dedicated to catching tench. From time to time tried spinning. But fail again, no tench, no pike on spinning, no pike on rings. Only roaches and rudds, even not a single perch. Overall this season caught only roaches, rudds and bleaks on kanieris. 🙂 Quite funny results. From 4 fishing attempts – 1kg of fish. But somehow i am quite sure fifth fail will not happen! 🙂 Will still try my luck!

washout (~0.4kg of rudds and roaches)

Kanieris fail :)

by on May.18, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Kanieris lake

Planned a trip to Kanieris with Jura this friday and i took a day off for this special occasion. Weather conditions were awful – very windy and actually cold too. Wasted another day and caught nothing. 🙂 I had 3 bleaks, Jura – 1 micro pike! We don’t get too happy with the results when we come together to angle. But this season is catastrophal overall too. Fail number 3 this season! May be something extraordinary will happen this season.

washout (3 bleaks, Jura – 1 micro pike)

Second fail in a row

by on May.04, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

I promised not to go fishing, but for some reason, today i did! 🙂 To no success again. Predators were silent, and even rudd was hard to catch today.

Season opener. Fail

by on May.01, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

A lonely ring in cold waters of Tumsupe riverHello my fellow fishermen. 🙂 At last May 1 – season opener for boats and predatory fish. I was looking forward to this date, full of hopes and expectations as ever. In the end it was dissapointment and anger and i was shouting curses like “this bloody fishing”, “this bloody wind” and a lot of other Russian obscenities. And even promised not to go fishing this week at least, so tired i was today! 🙂

Today it was not the case, cold wind gusts throwing boat to the left and to the right can make anyone angry in a couple of hours! 🙂 It took me 5 hours to quit.

Again, came to conclusion that rudd is worst possible live bait. It finds algae and runs to hide. All the baits today were sitting in any possible algae in 5 minutes time. You just can’t leave them for an hour. Stupid fish, i hate rudd, stupid fish, but it is beauty.

P.S. On friday i have a day off. I promised not to go fishing. 🙂 What do you think? May be the pike of my life is going to be caught on friday?

washout (~0.5kg of rudds)
