Small pikes and a tick bite

by on Jun.30, 2012, under Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

A 200g pike (released)Dedicated this day to spinning. Pretty warm weather made me hope for a perch activity today. Perch was a little bit more active, than usually, and i even managed to catch four of them today! 🙂 Two small pikes on walker and one standard pike on spinner. Great weather, slightly windy, good mood.

But the next day my positive mood was all gone, because i noticed a tick in my leg. Wasn’t really surprised, but just don’t like all the problems, coming with it. Last time i was bitten 10 years ago or so.

3 pikes (2 released), 4 perches

Weak results

A 500g pikeDecided to concentrate on spinning today. It was a late start today, only at 1 PM i was in the boat, seeking for my luck. Had a couple of strikes on walker, but missed. Switched to my favorite Blue Fox spinners, but golden one (perch) didn’t work today. May be because of the bright sun. Only when sun disappeared and i switched to silver spinner, first micro pike was caught.

Found a place where guys always angle with live bait. Tried my luck there – turned out to be a good place. Two more pikes and a perch were caught here. The second pike and the perch were micros. 🙂 But the last pike was already a standard for this river – 40cm, 500g. Also tried perch as a live bait on ring. Was chilling in the boat waiting for some action. But obviously pike was inert today. Still waiting for my grandma-pike to come! 🙂

3 pikes (biggest 500g), 1 perch – all released

Lack of something

by on Jun.10, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

River in the morningTried everything today – spinning, float rod and rings. Had a lot of time, but today was not the case. Previous week glory did not repeat! 🙂 Spinning was completely empty today. Some rudds and roaches on float rod. But predators were absolutely silent today, as if there no predators in the river. Was kinda disappointing experience today.

Next time will concentrate on spinning. Previous years proved that spinning in the summer on this river gives good results.
