Autumn pike fishing
In autumn, the inhabitants of the ichthyofauna become more active, since a long period of freezing awaits them. Pike is considered especially greedy in terms of food. In the period from September to December, it is caught on larger baits: wobblers, silicone, turntables and, of course, oscillators.
Fishing spot is half the success
Rivers, lakes and reservoirs are a blank canvas for artists to experiment with spinning rods. Each fisherman has in his arsenal his own animations, tested over the years of bait, as well as the knowledge gained over the years.
In early autumn, the predator adheres to those places where it lived in the summer. Difficulties in catching in the warm season arise due to the abundant plant carpet that ponds overgrow. With the arrival of the cold nymphaeum, pestle and hornwort gradually wither, settling down at the bottom. Thus, for spinners the upper layer of water is freed, windows appear among the islands from higher plants.
Autumn predator is less picky. If there is a pike in the fishing zone, then it will certainly show itself. For rivers, the best places are recognized: coastal edges, the borders of reeds and cattail, exits from the pits, sudden changes in the topography. Also, the fish is often guided by the strength of the current. On a jet, a pike is rarely found, therefore, the spotted inhabitant of a fresh environment should be sought at the boundaries of the water stream or in stagnant water. Small bays and shallow channels are considered excellent points for parking sites for “toothy torpedoes”. Strange as it may seem, in such zones of water bodies in the fall there are seasoned predators, although in the summertime in shallow water mainly young animals inhabit.
Promising places on ponds and reservoirs:
a dense layer of snags at different depths;
large stones and sunken objects that serve as a shelter;
vast bays and upper reaches;
Often, a predator keeps close to a flock of its prey. Thus, zander pursues the bream, and perch – groups of bleak. Knowledge of the habits of fish will help to find underwater inhabitants in large water areas, however, it is worth remembering that each pond is individual, and the habits of its inhabitants can characteristically differ.
Effective pike vibrations
Among the many metal spinners there are narrowly targeted models, the specialization of which is determined by the specific fishing conditions. Thus, light oscillators made from thin metal are used when narrowing in shallow water or in grass.
All products are classified into categories based on their characteristics. Oscillators differ in shape and size, weight and material, color. It is worth noting that it is necessary to choose a spinner looking back at the species composition of a particular reservoir. If the basis of the food base of the spotted beauty is bleak, roach or rudd, then narrow-body models are much more likely to bite. In water areas where crucian carp, bream and bream predominate – anglers use items with a wide body.
One of the most popular forms is considered to be a “spoon”. The bait got its name during the production of the first models, for which the cutlery served as a raw material. On the base of the spoon, they began to produce a spinner called the “Atom”, which quickly gained one of the leading positions when fishing for pike.
With the advent of cold weather the waters cease to bloom, and a suspension of water masses sank to the bottom. Increasing the transparency of water has a positive effect on nibble: the fish sees the bait from a farther distance. When fishing in troubled waters, many spinningists prefer bright and provocative tones of artificial baits. In the fall, priority falls on natural colors, as well as natural iron shades. Most often, on the other end of the cord are vibrations of gold, silver and copper color. The presence of an attack spot on the body of the spinner increases the percentage of bites sold. As a rule, it is placed closer to the tail, where the tee is located on the crown. The target is usually applied in red, although in the lines of many manufacturers there are spots of green, yellow and even white tones.
Parameters such as weight and size of the oscillator are no less important than the shape and color of the case. As a rule, the bait is selected based on the test form of the rod. For shallow water, the weight of the bait rarely exceeds 10 grams, while products up to 30 grams can be used at depths of 2 meters or more.
