Pike perch on ultralight with colored cheburashka

Report on spring spinning fishing for ultralight using colored loads. First experience.

The offseason flew extremely fast this year. Armed with a spinning reel, on the very first day without a strong wind, I went to the river. The section between the river and the reservoir of TPPs each spring brought good catches of zander. I was at the pond at about 10 in the morning, arrived after night duty.

In the pond at about 10 a.m.

I catch on an ultralight stick with a test of 1-7 grams, a cord YGK # 0.6. Silicone in the amount of 1.4-2.0 inches, working weights 2-3 grams, articulated mounting. The main feature of the first exit was the desire to test colored cheburashki. This topic arose last fall and became very popular at the beginning of the spring season. Having bought a sample of different cargoes, I got ready for fishing.

Colored Cheburashki

There is no bright sun, so I decide to start with the purple Nano Minnow 1.6 ″ from Crazy Fish with the usual lead cheburashka.

Several postings show no signs of fish. I turn to the Lacidjon Baby Rockfish 1.4 ″ in color sucker.

Since I put hook number 6 under the sights of zander to make an effective hook. I use a three-gram dark green matte cheburashka as a load. I fan the sector, I spend along the reeds, but the fish have no interest in the bait. I change the bait to a two-inch Tsunekichi WORM, switching to ever lighter colors.

I put a lead cheburashka and start shelling. It is difficult to draw conclusions in the complete absence of bite. But the fishing sector has been proven over the years of fishing. There are deep sections of the channel at the exit, and a small depth along the reeds, and the edge with the navels. The point is very good and it makes no sense to change it. I put a classic bait for pike perch – a green thioga in the size of two inches with an ordinary lead load and on the very first posting I feel a characteristic weak striker with a pull. The first lump is Sloven.

The size is very small and the beast goes to its native element.

I repeat the attempts and after several casts I get one more bite. The little fuss with a pound, he also has to be drowned.

Silicone is bitten, but I don’t have such a fish. I’m trying to switch to the white color of a similar bait.
