Lenka fishing on spinning
Catch Lenka is difficult, because the predator cautious. We have a lot to move and to literally sneak up on the places it stops. Sometimes this is not enough for effective fishing. It would seem that this agile, greedy, and omnivorous predator should reflex to attack anything that reminds him of the familiar objects of food. In practice, however, Goldilocks is quite selective with respect to spinning baits.
Goldilocks not only a very beautiful fish that lives in fast-flowing rivers and sometimes in lakes. This impassable salmon has special fighting qualities. You will never forget the fish Lenka the weight of 1 kg from snags, stones, or main jet on light tackle. It will provide fierce resistance until the last moment. And as soon as you fail it to yourself to take a hand, he’ll demonstrate full speed taiga river inhabitants.
She also called Siberian trout. Indeed,these fish a lot in common. Not only in body shape and coloration, but in the habitats. Ways to catch them are similar, and this trip is very beautiful! Not for nothing because in the pursuit of these predators we are dealing with the hundreds and thousands of kilometers.
The farther removed in the far Eastern taiga, the more beautiful it becomes nature! No words to describe the sensations of the wild world with which you are faced, in a limitless Sikhote — Alin. You on a mountain river. Runs a stream in which salmonids prey. With both sides hanging hill, the foot of which are strewn with pine trees, firs and cedars. In such moments I want to remember everything: the river, fish, footprints of wild animals, landscapes, sounds and smells of the taiga!
It is for this reason fishing for me, a close relationship interwoven with tourism. On the territory of our vast country, many beautiful places, some not found anywhere else inhabited by diadromous and resident salmon. And camp life adds even more charm to this fishing. When collected friends from different parts of the country and the world on the edge of the world, camp in wild taiga, and most of the time on the river for pastime is not to exchange anything! I was even faced with the fact that old friends did not go to the river to just hang out and relax at camp, enjoying the quiet and friendly forest.
Goldilocks, despite the fact that he is very greedy and aggressive, is rather tricky. Especially with large individuals that already know what dangers can conceal vertical silhouette on the shore. This spinning hiding and obleplivaet promising area!
Therefore, to effectively catch Lenka, must be prepared theoretically. We need to clearly understand what areas of the river should be a salmon. It is best if you helps in this is an experienced spinner, who is familiar with such activities.
I was very fortunate, I had mastered the catching of this fish with the help of several specialists in the far Eastern fishing. Had to break a lot of copies so I switched, regrouped and changed their perception of the process. From their mistakes and with the help of friends I managed to sort out the interesting nuances of catching Siberian trout. And I began to turn!
First of all, this predator can catch on parts of the river where there are a variety of shelters from rocks, twigs, logs. A particularly productive fishing can be in the rubble. They usually are formed around bends and spits, where the shore and stranded stop carrying a mountain stream trees. Such debris may reach heights of several meters.
I happened across one such blockage to get around a deep hole in the Bayou that I could not overcome in the waders. I quickly realized how dangerous they were piled on each other trees. When it reached the top and had to go to the other side, I saw with horror that the inside of the blockage, the trunks, roots and stumps were piled chaotically, forming an empty space. Is to make a wrong move — fall into a few meters. Be careful and try to avoid moving in the rubble!
Ducts with holes and bed recesses can be fantastically effective as the concentration Lenka can be very high. After all, for on such sites is slow, and predator easier to catch a fish, insect or rodent.
Promising are the ins and outs of rifts and boundaries of currents. Lenka here to rest and hunt for grayling, which is directly a roll.
Separately, I note the coastal zone. Along the water’s edge among the rocks and snags even on the rocks grazing Lenka. And if there is deepening along the coast, it certainly is a large individual.
The above sections of the river and should be given special attention, then you will not remain without fish!
Tactics for catching
Goldilocks as careful as aggressive. For this reason, all interesting points need to sh with the maximum distance and in the correct order from nearest point to follow it; without haste and noise; starting with the most promising and descending. This would allow you from the first casting to understand what is the concentration of the predator and the size of individuals present. You will be able to achieve the most bites.
When you move but the river and the harvest of promising points, there are a few important points:
— is famous too come close, you’ll spook and catch fish;
— when fishing Lenka you need to be focused only on him, not distracted by other fish;
— knowing its habitat and habits, it is necessary to adaptively choose lures depending on the time of year, day, weather, precipitation, water level, etc.;
— gear should be selected in accordance with the fishing conditions, size of salmon, and used
— equipment should be chosen depending on activity and its intensity: Hiking, fishing, fishing boat, protracted displacement in the taiga, the necessity of entering the water, etc.;
— it is necessary to take into account that you will have to navigate the river.
During the harvest of broad reach with the boat, going rafting, you should do more frequent, shorter casts. You are constantly blows over, so you may not be able slowly to sh snags or mound of large stones under the hill. But when walking the fishing trip you will visit fewer sections of the river than in the alloy, but you will have the opportunity to carefully study any area
If you go on a mountain river in Lenk, you should not be distracted by fishing for trout, grayling etc. to Admit the temptation is great! However, if you go for grayling, you are just wasting your time and not really catch any of the fish, as is their habitat, require different spinning
tackle and fishing tactics.
Plenty of times: you reach the spit which separates the river at the mainstream and channel (or how much duct). Catching options there are several. In the main riverbed of the rift where you can move some grayling on the smallest bait. The ducts can be long, winding and go into the forest, representing essentially independent of the river with the holes and the shallow areas, obstructions and extensions. How to know what trophies there waiting for?
Sometimes it’s tempting to be distracted by fishing for trout, because before entering into the channel or at its outlet can be a deep pit, near which formed stacked rubble. In such places you can expect to meet with hardened predator. However, light tackle just couldn’t do it with a large trout.
Different fishing conditions, and therefore our tactics may change due to weather phenomena. For example, a decrease or increase in water level due to the absence or presence of rains, respectively. In the first case there can be new braids, dry streams, oxbow lakes, backwaters, and the second water ceases to be transparent, braids are hidden under the water, a powerful stream is gaining speed, forming new channels and flooded coastal area. Accordingly, you will need different lures, Postings and even t-shirts.
Choice of bait
Fishing for salmon specific. It has its bright features and requirements that must be followed. You can bring the PA other end of the country a suitcase with hundreds of lures, of which hardly a dozen will suit different fishing conditions. To catch fun and productive, you need to prepare for such fishing. You should have only a sufficient set of proven lures in the amount of, for example, no more than 20-30 units. Particularly efficient I rather have 2-3 copies.
Two or three small boxes with various lures, it is sufficient under all conditions on the rivers of the Far East. But remember that mountain rivers are fast and powerful. Fish, stones, cramps — all of which can accelerate the wear of your favorite lures.
Over a few trips around Primorsky region I identified the range of specialist salmon spinning lures that are best suited for catching Lena in the Siberian rivers.
Cranky is very effective when Goldilocks stops to respond to the jerk and quick transaction, and begins to attack only slowly carried out lures, and no matter subsurface layer or itology.
Frequent changes in fishing activity leads to busting baits in search of the right. Cranky — one of the first lures I try. The lure of medium length with a depth of 0.5-1 m is particularly well suited for moderate currents and trawling the recesses of the track. One of the best examples is Super SMITH Camion SR. Practice has shown that the number of bites depends on the color and game lures. So I have another 2-3 similar lure.
In areas with a depth of just few centimeters, where every jerk crankbait-minnow leads to when you swipe your at the bottom, you can use a crank type SSR that do not cling to any rocks or branches etc. Because the fish might not immediately attack and chase bait, but after her contact with the bottom hook can remain grass, foliage that will scare off a predator.
I must say that sometimes big baits attacked even Lenka weighing up to 300 g hollow where the depth is allowed to use the lures of medium size, I have not changed on the small.
Cranky simply irreplaceable in the pools, creeks and backwaters during periods of high water. When lifting its level on promising areas before entering the backwaters and bays where the depth was above 2 m, it becomes even more. And if such areas are contiguous with the main stream of the mountain river, forming a counter reverse jet, the boundary currents, you will experience a long-awaited bite.
In such places work horizon up to 1 m may not be enough, especially for deep basins. There be actual sanyaasa cranky. They can also carry a slow uniform wiring, but already at a depth of 1.5-3 m. One such SMITH Cannon Magnum Dredge.
On one of fishings we tied the boat for a willow on the edge of the Bay and fished the boundary of the main flow and calm waters and the Gulf itself. Comrade caught on a familiar lures-minnow with different buoyancy and depth, and I’ll crank. I have every other transaction has led to the capture of big Lena, a fellow at the harvest time point, only 2 fish. I had 5-6 bites per 5 transactions, it is just one bite for 10-15 transactions.
I offered him cranky, but he refused, trying to catch fish on their own lures. He had a huge amount, but they did not bring. Krenk was slow to spend in any desired horizon, but floating minnow were faster and mainly in the surface layer, sinking was down to the bottom and clung to driftwood. Spinners you can spend in the necessary water, but their wiring work accelerated in comparison with the kranks’.
Lures-minnow you can effectively catch as uniform harness, and twitching. All depends on the situation.
Jerk posting under different rhythm, amplitude, and sharpness of the most effective, as flax is a very bold and aggressive predator. Even individuals weighing 500 g can attack the lures with a length of 110 mm. Active lenok sharply attacking the bait in shallow water and on the boundary of the currents.
With regular posting, well get to catch the PA reaches, where a powerful current without acceleration and seething plots not throw the game the lure even at slow retrieve the fishing line.
What lures minnow are the most effective? How to use them correctly? Here are the questions I constantly worried about trips to the far East. During each expedition into the forest the answers obtained are different. In General, salmon in General, and film in particular, it is impossible to have one bait on her occasions. Anyway, the fishing conditions are always different.
First of all, the optimal size of the lures ranges from 70 to 90 mm., These lures will fly to the desired distance, the flow will be more stable than smaller ones. In addition,” they are very visible Lenka. Yes, and it is important that they can cut very small fish.
The working horizon of the transaction is of great importance. In the upper reaches of the taiga rivers current bait with the high buoyancy and stability at the time of posting strong jet. As a rule, there is an optimal depth crankbaits up to 0.5 m In the lower reaches and the middle reaches of the rivers can be effective sinking and diving lures.
The most effective lure of last year I was floating a Wobbler SMITH Cherry Blood 90SR with silvery sides and blue back. It weighs 4.4 grams, length is 90 mm. Thanks to its physical parameters it flies away to the cast, as balance is designed specifically for fishing for salmon in fast water.
When Hiking beautiful harvest and fish tion duct taiga rivers Cherry Blood due to its weight you could send a short and sharp transitions between the logs in the dam, at a point in front of the stone under the hill, etc. On the channels for not very powerful, so cost quite smooth patikami “rock” Wobbler at the time of posting, and was a welcome attack Siberian trout.
I would also like to mention fishing lures-minnow in the coastal zone from beneath the overhanging the water branches of trees and among the rubble. It is very effective, especially if that part of the river no holes, and bottom topography is monotonous. You should find a similar shelter for fish on a long reach — and you’ll catch Lenka.
So, out of the inundated root of a fallen tree, I managed to catch several big fish. It is important to sh in such places gradually, area by area, first the area in front of the root (blockage), then the area around and under obstacles, and only then go to the harvest sector for shelter. You need to be careful not to make noise, not too close, not even cast a shadow in the fished area to do sighting shots, otherwise the fish will be wary and not get caught.
Interesting feature I noted when my more experienced comrades advised me to sh in the Bush above the water, every overhanging branch, every log, even if it lies on the shore. Initially, there were doubts. The prospect of trawling the bushes and branches overhanging from the shore, I understand. But why throw a Wobbler to a log that doesn’t even touch the water, and has a diameter of not more than 20 cm? Apparently, the trunks cast shadows and hide the fish from terrestrial predators emerging from the woods.
One of the more a small narrow-sinking minnow. They are better than others pass through the main stream, and at depth, when a strong flow blows, and “wraps” other baits.
With the low water channel grooves with a rapid current, and at high water, when any section of the river is impossible to hold lightweight floating Wobbler, proved to be excellent bait SMITH D-incite 44 with a high body, a length of 44 mm and weighing 4 g. due to the geometry he is flying, and due to the high body fish it is easier to see in the murky swirling flows. Most interesting is that this miniature Wobbler brought a rather large Lenkov. Him pecking specimens weighing more than 1 kg.
Stands out night fishing Lenka on surface lures. Every time this trip for me as the first. This action leaves a unique impression! Imagine the taiga, the night did not see you only with a forehead lantern and spinning move along the shore and spits in search of active fish. Around you, the noise of the river and the forest, and you merge with the darkness and witness the beautiful night life of wildlife!
But much more exciting and eventful night fishing with the movement but the river in a boat. The feeling is beyond words! Taiga silence with flickering luminous pairs of eyes on berets, pitch dark and only the edges of trees and hills stand out against the starry sky, and he takes a dark wall. The steering in the hand of a powerful torch, which he lights the way, otherwise you can come on come ashore, not to notice the floating log, etc.
It is important to remember that the casting made in the absence of clearly visible landmarks, so you need not to overdo it and not throw the bait in snags or trees on the opposite shore. And this happens often. The opposite Bank, and channel are covered briefly headlamp flashlight, which immediately shuts down not to betray his presence. Then the casting begins the long and uniform wiring.
Goldilocks eats the clock, but it has peaks of activity, and the night is one of them. In-the-dark rodents and other small animals cross the river from shore to shore, here and watching their predatory fish. At night there are usually larger specimens.
Crawler is a strange type of lures designed to catch fish from the surface of the water. They can be of different designs and shapes, to make different sounds with their blades, clamps or curves of the body, have a game of different amplitude and frequency.
Goldilocks attacks in the night eagerly, to pursue, and several times to throw the bait. In these moments you can clearly hear its distinctive flip-flops. Felt the blows in hand through the form even when fishing with nylon manolescu from a distance of 30 m.
I tried to fish with different bait, the performance have been different. One of the most effective was SMITH Batapy. This is a rare bait, which I learned after being in the far East. Its weight is 16.2 g, and the length is 6.3 cm lure two metal blades, which are at a uniform transaction, when the body rolls over from side to side, hitting the water. Probably rodents, when across the river, Maltese and pawing paws, and emit similar sounds.
Vibrating and rotating spinners of various types well attract Lenka. Especially spinner baits with a weighted core and a thickened lobe, which easily can be carried out through the turbulent flow without a glitch in the game. “Spoons” I was able to catch with less performance.
Effectively enough to catch in Sunny weather with spinners with a dark core and bright petal. Chassis weight lures 4-9, “kolbaskami” I was able to achieve a result when I picked up the patches and contrasting colors of the lures, their weight was up to 10 g.
One of these days with the high water when the level rose by more than 1 m on crankbaits on three we caught about 5 Lenkov in a few hours. When desperate, began to pick up bright and noisy lures. Thus, it came to turntables. And at the first riffle on the border of the flow for two was
caught more than ten Lenkov.
There are even fishes that have been caught on artificial baits. Local anglers have a tradition to take a bite of adipose fin caught Lenka large. So mark caught the fish, the fishermen, adhere to the principle “catch and release”. Fortunately, those are becoming more.
Gear on Lenka, I would divide the light and medium-light. The fact is that the most fun to catch these fish on light tackle, as you really could feel the full force of salmon. For these purposes, I use a specialized spinning length 6’0 ft (1.8 m) and a test 2-8 g together with a coil and a 2000 on the classification of SHIMANO. In view of the fact that in the taiga rivers, a lot of stones and driftwood, I use nylon fishing line VARIVAS Super Trout Advance Twitch Master 6 lb (0,185 mm) with a minimum elongation. It allows you to easily handle lures-minnow and without risk to tackle to draw out the big fish.
Heavier tackle I apply only in the case of fishing lures and other bulky baits weighing more than 7, Especially if the predominant transaction is jerk and where there is a lot of driftwood. For these purposes, I have a more powerful, but too short with the dough spinning to 16 In set with him I use a larger coil with thicker fishing line to the resource and reliability of the gear was generally allowed to throw and pursue the lure with twitching on the main stream, and to have had the opportunity, if necessary, to force the playing.
Fishing in the far Eastern taiga are indescribably beautiful. Once you sit on the boat and start the journey to the upper reaches of the mountain rivers through the vast territories of the Sikhote-Alin as dreams begin to come true. You see the unspoilt coast, clear rivers, rivulets and streams, amazing paint woods, mountains, a variety of wild animals, which can rightly be called masters of the taiga, and you will inevitably meet harsh, but the most hospitable and kind people representing small peoples of the Far East.
Lenok fish are not only beautiful, but also very strong. Large specimens without unnecessary movements simply come to the main stream, and you have to try to cope with this salmon.
This is a fishing dream!
