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?

Summer-house season opener

by on May.23, 2010, under Spinning, Tumsupe river

After quite a disappointment tournament at Kanieris lake yesterday (in terms of pikes) i was determined to catch something today at the summer-house river — Tumsupe.

It was very sunny day with high temperatures and taking into consideration that i was at river at midday i wasn’t hoping for a big fish. But i knew i will catch something since it is my home river, which i know the best. And yet another sunbathing day today.

Well known places gave result once again, since this year nothing changed. 1 pike and 2 perches were caught and released to their natural habitat — let them grow.

This is what i found on a snag underwater

1 pike (40cm), 2 perches — catch & release

Season opener at Kanieris

by on May.02, 2010, under Spinning, Kanieris lake

I am holding an illegal size pike at lake Kanieris on May 2, 2010Today is official season opener at lake Kanieris for us (for everyone else it was yesterday). 🙂 It was a tough winter this year, and a lot of fish died at Kanieris, but i suppose that majority managed to survive.

At last me and Jura are at the lake this year full of hopes etc. So we were at the lake at 10 AM, which is too late, but not in the early spring. It was just fine — first fish landed the boat at 12:00. It was kinda weird, that Jura caught 3 pikes in 10 minutes from the same place, while i was finishing my sandwich with coke and watching with square eyes. It was weird, because pikes do not group usually. It looks as if they do actually group in spring after spawning. And yes, by the way, i was loosing 3-0 at that time.

I hate to loose any competition i am taking part in — fishing with Jura was also a challenge for me, that’s why i have tried my best to catch him, but third pike got away just near the boat. I did lost today. And i have to mention that all pikes were too small to keep them — all five released to their natural habitat!
