If the pike does not take a spoon

The most reliable pike fishing. Simple but effective gear that will catch the pike, if any.

It happens that the pike do not want to take the most expensive and very natural outward baits either in the morning, in the evening, or all week ... Meanwhile, from time to time, its tail is heard in the sleepy thickets of reeds and reeds. Of the artificial lures at such a time, most likely, various surface lures such as gliders, poppers, walkers, torpedoes, and the like, would have come up. But they are not always taken by a predator fooled by heat.

Natural pike bait

Live fish was and remains a natural bait for pike, even if in the heat the grip will be less frequent than in a good pike zhor. Of live bait gear, a float fishing rod is more dynamic and running. Not that float fishing rod that is designed for catching lazy crucian carp and tench, red-eyed roach, golden-sided bream and other cyprinids, but more powerful, with a large float that can keep the sinker-olive and lively bait afloat. Catching pikes with a fishing rod is akin to spinning hunting. You also have to walk a lot on the banks in search of a catching whirlpool or go on a boat on a reservoir, looking for a bay where there is a pike. Often, such fishing is most effective during the period of sluggish biting pike, as in the “deaf-mouthed” predator stands in one place and can grab a fish only when it is directly in front of its sleepy eyes.

Fishing bait fishing equipment

The rig of the live bait fishing rod is quite simple and consists of a strong fishing rod equipped with rings and an inertia-free reel, a large sliding float, a sinker and a leash with a hook. Better to put a monofilament. There will be less confusion. A sliding float will give castings greater accuracy, especially in windy weather. After casting, the float floats and rests against the restriction bead on the fishing line, fixed to the desired depth. Usually, a pike is caught, letting live bait at the bottom or at half-water, if the bottom is stony.

Live bait is caught under the dorsal fin or under the dorsal fin and lip. To do this, a tackle is knitted from the leash, where the front single hook catches the bait lip, and the twin or triple hooks the fin. If fishing occurs on the current, and not in stagnant water, it is better to cling live bait to the lip, otherwise in the first method it will spin like a propeller.

Very reliable and catchy gears are flyer

These gears are more than one hundred years old, nevertheless, they are as modern and efficient as in the 19th century. The summer zherlitsa consists of a wooden or plastic slingshot, on which a thick monolesk is wound in the form of an eight, the diameter of which can be 0.5-0.6 mm. Such a fishing line protects hands from cuts when fishing for large fish, and is also a shock absorber during predator jerks. Usually flyer-girls are placed right by the grass: along the edge or in the windows among the egg capsules. And when the pike grabs the bait fish, the fishing line pulls off the cut in one of the forks and starts to drop from the flyer. Pike at this time goes into the undergrowth and swallows live bait. Then it tries to escape and at this time there are the strongest jerks of the predator, but the fishing line twisted around the stalks of water lilies and hornwort dampens well and softens the jerks. Thick fishing line easily extends from the grass.

The flyer is suspended on the tip of a strong pole, stuck in the bottom at an angle of 45 degrees. A steeper angle will allow live bait to catch on a pole and stay out of the visibility of the predator. As already mentioned, girders are exhibited at stripes or islets of grass, in the windows of aquatic vegetation. It is almost impossible to catch spinning reels on artificial baits, unless you can use the glider or slug to go through the mugs of a bag, but for live bait gear it is the best place. Here shelters for ambush of predators, in the heat shady and cool.

The most reliable is the Finnish hook

It is made of steel spring wire, has no serif sting, but works on the principle of "stand in the spacer." Well sharpened hook tips on the reverse move into this same strut and the pike can no longer leave.

A bait fish with such a hook clings to a method where a leash is passed into the bait’s mouth, and then it is removed through the gill cover and fastened to the clasp. The life of the bait fish is somewhat less, but there are no descents as in the “under the dorsal fin” method.

Fishing for live bait will always be the most reliable pike fishing.
