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?

Phone drowning and no success

by on Oct.15, 2011, under Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

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)
