Perch and Pike Lesser Chaplac

The baby was not caught, the predator did not take, and did not want to leave. What can help in this situation?

This small village does not stand out anything special. The usual rural landscape with fields and copses, wooden houses, rickety and black from old age, and stone houses with a claim to design. This is clearly summer residents from the city settled. The village is also known for the fact that Dmitry Medvedev came here as a president of the Russian Federation. Like, it was only thanks to Dmitry Anatolyevich that the water supply was carried out in the village and the road was repaired. Many more villages in Russia need to be visited by the president so that they give water and cars can pass without capsizing into a ditch …

And beyond the outskirts a long pond turns blue, apparently stretching along the channel of a damp, flooded river. Several times I have been to it. Somehow in August I got here on a bite of a tench, rather large, but lazy. I took “a teaspoon at an o’clock” … But basically I was interested in a predator here. The main advantage of this river pond is that it is very close to the city. At the same time there is a fish and quite large, if we talk about the lines. But the pike comes across. True, I didn’t catch more than a kilogram of weight here. And even that was on the first ice.

Today I just keep my way here – check the appetite of a local predator

Not so long ago I was here and caught perch on a “turntable” and small vibro-tails well. Now, the truth is already September, but it seems that nothing has changed so far. Still, the weather is quiet and sunny after a few days of rains and slush. In the afternoon it is warm as in the summer. In a word, everything is still.

But on the spot it turned out that not everything was as it was …
Perch did not take at all. At least, he didn’t take it at all from me, and local peasants used to catch perch from boats as if nothing had happened … It can be seen that the locals catch fishing rods, not spinning rods, and fry shine on hooks. And it was also seen how some of the fishermen rinsed by the grass with some netting. Malka, apparently caught. I also tried to quickly build some kind of net. Something came out of the net of the tommy-box, which was lying in my backpack, and a hoop of dry willow. But the fry didn’t want to get into my improvised mummer, although I threw bread to them … But then it became clear why these fry did not respond to bread. It turned out that this is a young tench. One of the crushed fry swam to my boat, and I could see the fish closer. Yes, definitely a ruler. He would have rushed to bread …

Malek was not caught, did not take perch, but did not want to leave
I rummage thoughtfully in fishing supplies, looking for it, not knowing what, but then my gaze settled on winter spinners. But what, than not a little? .. A silver whisk with scarlet beads on a small trie. Check how he plays? .. I hook the bait to the clasp on the spinning braid and rinse the lure along the side and up and down. Tuk! .. On one of the dumps of the lure down, she suddenly became heavier, and a nimble perch from the palm hammered on the fishing line. Played, called, pampered at the boat for fun, but here, it turns out, the jokes aside! Perch took my game seriously.

I’m doing the next cast also seriously. I lower the spinner to the bottom and, slightly raising the bait, make a short jerk up. I don’t have a nod on spinning now, but it would be useful, albeit a jig. But the bite surrendered significantly on the tip of the spinning. Perch took eagerly and strongly. And then the smaller perches were pecked, but it was worth sailing five meters to the side, as the first to take the perch was already larger – the sergeant. Well, just like in winter fishing from a new hole …

Later, when I came here at the end of summer to catch tench with a fishing rod and in the fall already specifically after a predator, I always took with me an onboard fishing rod, equipped as a winter fishing rod and an ordinary winter fishing rod with a jig. And if they refused to take pike and perch for spinning, then often sheer resilience came out on silver sheer spinners, on which I usually caught perches on the first ice. Sometimes small pikes reacted to such sheer gleaming, grabbing these perched baits. But I had to find the deepest places on this pond, which, like most village ponds, was shallow. Only along the channel of the flooded river, which led to the airlock, was there any depth of three and a half meters, surrounded by depths in the range of 1.2-2 meters. On the edge of the flooded river, the predators of the village pond grabbed a vertical spoon. And though large specimens did not come across here, but pikes weighing one and a half kilograms and perches up to three hundred grams were not uncommon.
