Beautiful recreation

A 300g perchReally enjoyed fishing today, absolutely no wind and a nice warm weather, not too cold. Just enough! Also active fish! All these factors made this day a good one!

Started with spinning today and a small pike in no time. After a while an amazing perch! A big one for this river – on spinner of course. All pikes and perches were caught on spinner today.

3 pikes (2 released), 5 perches (biggest 300g, 28cm), 1kg of rudd and roach

No faith – no fish

River is waking up at 5:00 AMToday decided to try it seriously, woke up at 5.00 AM, and at 6.00 AM i was already in the boat with a float rod and a first rudd caught. I was doing good, but the rudd was really small. The only reason why i kept almost all of the rudd is – i don’t really like it.

It was time to switch to spinning, and may be it was too late. Desperate attempts to catch anything helped me to land only one undersized pike today.

1 pike (released), 1kg of rudd and roach

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.

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)
