Second fail in a row

by on May.04, 2012, under Float rod, Rings, Spinning, Tumsupe river

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?

Easter at Starpinupite

by on Apr.04, 2010, under Spinning, Kanieris lake

A beautiful view of the Starpinupite canalVisited Starpinupite today. Starpinupite is a channel which connects Lake Kanieris and the Gulf of Riga in the Baltic sea.

I might consider this as my first fishing attempt this year. Was not surprised to see such a strong current in this time of year, so it wasn’t meant to be the successful fishing today. It was snowy winter this year and very frosty too. Not a surprise that many of the large lakes in Latvia will be completely open in the middle of the April. And it is not allowed to catch pikes in April here in Latvia.

Actually if you want to fish in lake Kanieris or even here at Starpinupite you have to purchase a license at the boat station! Two years ago at least the channel was free for all.
