Overview of gear and lures for the fall

So, apparently, “Indian summer” has come. In the morning there are misty and scarlet at the dawn frosted matinees with transparent air, smelling of icy damp lowlands and, it seems, already snow. But the days are warm, in a light haze and with weightless fluffy clouds. It’s time to walk along the shore with a spinning rod or swim along the river in a boat, throwing baits into quiet bays and at the boundaries of the river stream and coastal calm. Although in the fall, for the most part, heavy oscillating lures, large wobblers and soft jig baits are used, but the time has not yet come to put the rotating lures into the boxes for storage. They, turntables, can still become the most effective baits on a quiet morning and, especially on a quiet sunny day, when many predators go hunting in shallow water for a fish that comes out to bask in the sun and pinch water bugs and insects on the autumn reeds.

Nothing, nothing, men, if you try it, you don’t like it – it’ll go to lure …

On this day, there was no bite on Borovskaya, at least on the spinners. But barely hooked on a small yellow-orange twister, as the fishing line resiliently settles, and a live weight hangs on it. Perch! I bring him to the boat and push my son:

– Vanka, the sack! He fusses, pulling out the pressed landing net, then, happily hurrying, brings him under the fish. The specimen, of course, is not a record one, and if you put it bluntly, it’s not a big one, but it’s on its weight and it can break off the thin tip of the ultra-light. At least, I think so, looking at a stunted to pity whip, thinner than a match …

Soon he took another perch. But we already passed it. Such perches, no heavier than three hundred grams, I snagged on the lakes from each cast, tired of this monotonous fishing. How to surprise a pike? “Aglia” didn’t make any impression on the toothy, as if there was no golden triumph of “celebrities”. So – a concussion … Continue reading
