Phone drowning and no success

A lonely swan in cold octoberIt was below zero this night and could have influenced fish negatively.

Today’s plan was to catch live bait, to setup my rings with live bait, and to try my luck with spinning while rings are working. Catching live bait was a major problem, managed to catch only 2 rudds and a bleak. Rudds went on rings and a bleak went to a Coca-cola bottle with a hook. 🙂 Pike was really silent today, it was almost mystic time, there was no movement in the river.

I was just enjoying my time on the river, surrounded by the woods. Moved to the shore, bended and my old-school SonyEricsson k750i just flaw into the river. To my luck it wasn’t really deep, and i managed to grab it from the bottom of the river.

Fishing on rings

by on Oct.08, 2011, under Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

This pike was caught on ring (840g)Always wanted to try to angle with rings, heard about them a lot, watched in fishing videos like others do it. Now it was my time to try it. I must mention that all pikes i caught before, were caught in spinning solely, and none of them on the live bait. Rings use a live bait. Rings in russian are called “kruzhki”.

Since it was my first experience, i probably did something wrong, but anyway i had a feeling the result will come today anyway. And the result came. My lonely two rings were swimming for 3 hours and then one turned suddenly and fish was already going away with my live bait and was successfully stopped and landed into the boat. I used roach as a live bait.

Also had one smaller pike on spinning – Megabass Dog-X did the job just perfectly!

2 pikes (460g and 840g, smaller one released)
