How to catch a pike. River. Part 2

Pike fishing on rivers In the first post of this series – “How to catch a pike in the river. Part 1“, I settled on finding the most promising places for catching river pike. In this post, we will talk about methods of spinning pike fishing on the river, receptions of postings and the most running spinning baits.

If to be brief, the hunt for a pike on the river is reduced to the following moments: 1. The channel and the coastal edge. 2.Cropping of grassy shoals and ruts. 3.Lovlya under the overhanging bushes and trees over the water. 4.Oblov especially prominent places on the general background – snags, underwater islands, whirlpools.

River pike At the curb, the lure wiring is carried out almost exclusively – a step. After all, otherwise, it is impossible to catch the crook completely. The pike can stand on the entire height of the dump and it is necessary to walk just close to it, and not once to touch the bait of the bottom and take it to the water column. When catching a coastal edge, it is most convenient to get on a boat by the shore (or find a suitable place on the shore) and to cast along the coastal sail in depth or at a slight angle to it. Catch the same channel creek better casts across and at medium angles. If the width of the river is up to 80-100 m, it is quite possible to efficiently harvest a channel bed from the opposite (steep) shore. Usually they try to drive the bait against the current. So the tension of the cord is guaranteed and the control of the bait is not lost for a minute. The best baits for brovings are medium and large vibrotails with heavy jig heads and deep diving wobblers.

On the river grassy shallows is effective wiring to the floor of the water. And if there is a battle of a predator, then the wiring of surface baits is effective. It is not so important the direction of casting, on or against the current. It is more important simply to successfully maneuver between algae foci. A pike can stand in any of them and attack the bait at any time. So, if you catch a pike, you have to keep your ear sharp. Of the baits on the grassy shallows should be preferred, in addition to the already mentioned surface wobblers: small and medium soft bait on light jig; Medium turntables with a core; Light vibrating spoon-baits, including – such as “Castmaster.”

Under the overhanging bushes and trees, usually throw floating wobblers, small turntables or silicone baits. However, there is a unique opportunity to float the bait from the place where the angler is standing, up to the desired point (even an unreachable direct cast). But for this – the bait should not sink. This requirement is met by all surface baits – floating wobblers, poppers, etc. Under the overhanging trees it is worth trying to catch not only the traditional wobblers, but also the imitation of various beetles, butterflies and other evil spirits. Although this is usually caught with a chub with a chub, but a pike can also take it.

Catching of some snags, pyatachkov, etc. It is necessary to exercise as it is necessary. These places are usually difficult to access and it is already good if you can manage the bait in the immediate vicinity. If the pike lurks near such a shelter, a grip is ensured. The choice of baits here is the widest. But sometimes it is scary to send such proprietary wobblers or turntables to such tasks – the probability and price of the hook are too high. So, I’m more likely to use medium-sized vibro-worms on jigheads with the corresponding force of the current.
