Wobbler for pike, in the article you will find the features of catching pike on wobblers, as well as learn about suitable places for fishing.
One of the most popular lures for fishing with spinning today is the wobbler, although it appeared recently (read more about wobblers here). But even if you have a huge, rich arsenal of wobblers, this does not guarantee you the capture of the desired predator. For successful fishing, the most important factor is the correct use of each wobbler.
Before starting fishing, you must correctly assess the place of fishing. I think that every fisherman who has ever caught a pike knows that she prefers to stand in shelters, where she lies in wait for her future prey. Its prey becomes a fish that swims past, so you should pay attention to places where clean water ends and aquatic vegetation begins, or in the water there is a fallen tree or bushes, the edge of reeds, where there are islands of algae. It is in these places that the pike ambushes itself. You just need to explore all such places with a wobbler with a diving depth that fits in the place where you are fishing.
If you decide to fish from a boat, then here you should explore the bottom topography, this will help the echo sounder. With the help of an echo sounder you can find pits, edges, ledges and also bends of the bottom. It is in such places that you should use a wobbler for pike.
When fishing on a wobbler, you must know its working depth, each model has its own. Your success or failure in fishing often depends on this. For example, if the wobbler has a working depth of 3 meters, and you catch in shallow water, where the depth is no more than half a meter, then in the best case your wobbler will simply stick into the bottom and you will catch a bunch of grass. And at worst, the wobbler will just cling tightly and you will lose it.
The role of a wobbler in the summer cannot be overestimated. In lakes in summer, water is stratified into warm and cold, a phenomenon called the thermocline. With a hot wedge, a small fish rises to the upper warm layer of water, since it is rich in oxygen. A pike naturally moves in the wake of her. The fisherman needs to determine the depth of the thermocline, and choose a wobbler with a suitable working depth. In my experience, the best wobblers for pike fishing in the summer are “minnow” models.
Closer to autumn, the situation on the water bodies is changing markedly. Pike begins to grab large prey, and on this basis, and the wobbler should be large. You can use the “jerkbait” model, it resembles a “mine” in shape, only has a larger size. But the “jerkbait” is completely lacking its own game, it must always be supported by spinning. Although it is difficult, but with patience, the fisherman will enjoy the trophy pike.
Catching pikes on a wobbler will make any fisherman constantly think. Since if a fisherman correctly assesses the whole situation under water, all the factors are fishing, and uses them to select a suitable wobbler model, he will soon receive his treasured trophy!
Pike Wobbler Wiring Basics
Catching pike on baits such as wobblers is a creative process for the angler. A predator can attack almost any bait at any winding speed. A pike grabs a wobbler when dropped into water, with uniform wiring at any speed, with a stop of movement, with jerking wiring, with step wiring. You can make short or long jerks with a rod, vary the duration of pauses. Pike pecks in the most unexpected circumstances. And each spinning specialist has to unravel the secrets of a pike nibble on his own.
For many anglers, wobblers become a complex bait that allows for many game options. And even an experienced spinning specialist who knows different technical methods of wiring, can not always find an approach to wobbler.
Each type of pond has its own type of lure. Sometimes a wobbler can gather dust in a spinning box for years without bringing pike bites. But once he gets to a new lake or river, he is attacked by a toothy predator over and over again.
Of the total supply of wobblers to fish, two main methods should be distinguished. This is a uniform and not uniform wiring. Uniform wiring allows you to catch large areas, and it is used with wobblers that have an active game.
If the posting is not uniform, the angler should know that the pike usually attacks it during the first movements after casting or during a pause. The rod pulls can be short or wide, and for a passive pike it is better to make smooth movements with a spinning rod. Therefore, the rod should be selected light so that you can perform jerks with your hand.
It is noticed that the pike likes to grab slowly pop-up models on a pause. Those wobblers that, when stopping the wiring, go abruptly to the surface, the fish ignores. When the bait slowly pops up, it is necessary to monitor the tension of the fishing line. The bite is so careful that it can only be determined by the "startle" of the fishing line. If you miss the moment of hooking, then the pike will simply spit out the bait. With such fishing, a bright braid that is clearly visible against the background of water is very useful.
When fishing on wobblers, the spinning player needs to know the approximate depth at the point of fishing. Based on this, the wobbler model that works well at a given depth is selected. To quickly select the right bait, you can sign with a marker each wobbler. This will save time on fishing, as well as save part of their "collection".
