Spinning without rules

When jig fishing, depending on the weight of the lure has developed the concept of light and heavy jig-spinning, there is, of course, and transitional forms – and is used here strictly specialized rods with a certain test range, which, because of characteristics of technology step transaction must have a hard and fast action.

It turns out that the standard, properly constructed spinning tackle, where the thickness of the braided fishing line and weight used baits with class coils and test the range of the rod, implies a standard, you might say, to a certain extent, the ideal conditions for the same jig fishing.

About it in the future and will be discussed as the most popular at the moment among the anglers. This means that at a depth of, say, 5-7 meters, and in the absence of flow angler can take “stick” with the test is 10-40 grams and catch bait with a weight of 14-16 grams on the twist of 0.10-0.13 mm.

But any experienced spinner knows that if all over posting there any features of bottom topography, including driftwood, rocks, steep steps and others, the jig fishing standard bottom profile with the correct form of a ditch or pit often turns into a normal exercise.

The fact that fish in such places is rare, and stupid, that there sometimes appears, quickly caught by fishermen from standard thinking, which an absolute majority.

Nothing wrong or shameful about it, to catch the “standard” because at the beginning of the development of spinning this approach allows you to create technically skilled angler. And this inevitably leads to high results fishing in those places where it is still preserved fish “Eldorado”, for example, on Akhtuba, the Lower Volga and in deaf taiga rivers.

But every year increases the shaft wanting frequent, “unearned” bites, hungry is easy to “fight” the fish, so all these places with the help of looking for in fishing for entertainment only, sooner or later, will be degraded and reduced to a common denominator, which is typical for all water bodies in populated areas, especially around cities.

There is already a “standard” fishing often does not allow a rare and bites for many trips to the water, which further breeds wanting to go to the fishing spots and contributes to the enrichment of the different shills there.

But in poor fish places, it turns out, the predator, and even large, enough to and significant the catch was, and to get pleasure from what you were able to get the trophy where there were a hundred anglers and caught nothing, or even did not attempt to catch.

And because conditions do not comply with certain canons, standards, and because the lure here is not to spend “correctly”, and depth is not adapted to test parameters of the gear, and the consumption of baits because of solid hooks possible is huge. But you have to understand that just as these neudobjah different fish have a fair chance to stay alive and not get either in your network or on the hook for many anglers.

Realizing where to look for luck in “dead” ponds, especially in the capital region, you need to find the technical capabilities of a fish to lure, what often helps not a standard approach to spinning that it is better to consider the example of only some specific situations of fishing. In this case disassemble only those of them, where, in spite of the standard seems to be the parameters of the area of fishing, had to apply “uncommon” for powerful spinning, but sometimes even the maximum length.

Here, of course, the author shares his not always indisputable, but the accumulated years of experience of other anglers, too, can be equally effective and original approaches. As they say, over the years, and as a result of constant practice of every experienced angler produced its own style, a style that cannot be copied neither from the Internet nor to adopt from articles – it is important to learn the methodology, the way of solving a particular problem.

The first case, for example, the most possible in autumn. Different then the predator starts perfectly caught the jig method, but dense aggregations could be found only in the dense snags or even in the thicket of bushes. While the water is still relatively warm, and all the action takes place at a shallow depth.

It is typical for ponds and vast areas of many reservoirs. Here, it would seem, need a spinning light or medium class lures weighing up to a maximum of 10 grams. However, this approach almost every transaction in such places, ends with an unfortunate hook and loss of bait, and all because of a rather “gentle” tackle not allows you to literally tear the bait past the barrier of obstacles.

When it touches the bait branches or driftwood is quite soft “stick”, in response to encountered resistance, at first bent, and then develops the necessary force, but in that time manages to hook firmly “settle” in the wood, that is to say here that the tackle as “late”.

Another thing, when the same bait is used the rod more powerful class – in this case, when posting a hitting the bait on the hook is so hard that it literally bounces off obstacles, rarely “having” to use the hook.

And hornblende managed to grab a predator enough fraction of a second, when she flicker in a narrow zone of clean water.

Of course, without loss of lures and there is not enough, but they can be significantly reduced if, first, to work with the very baits: effective use of various “rubber” on the offset hook; the hooks are well poranki made in not will the version when the double hooks are bent close to the foam body; at worst, a conventional jig head possible in the flame of a lighter a bit to loosen the hook in the area of the bend – fish it is unlikely to unbend, and with a powerful hook bait tackle “rip off” will succeed.

Besides, thirdly, there is the need to keep the “high top” which is necessary in many cases of fishing in difficult places, including the snags. Here helps again, long and hard rod, whose length can reach 3.0 to 3.3 meters.

By the way, when stiff and high-speed wiring jig baits themselves the many snags encountered on her way as would contribute to the seduction of a predator on the grip.

The fishing was that was only the bait to “fight back” from an obstacle, as here, guarded by bite – apparently, the relatively steady movement of the lure is well diversified and exciting fish unexpected shots to the side after hitting the obstacle encountered.

Interaction with driftwood, stone, hill may be in varying degrees, tangential or frontal, so the trajectory of the rebound each time will be different, and the whole transaction will turn out intricate, able to stir even the sluggish predator.

Another typical example, when the desired “non-standard” in terms of catching the spinning long and hard “stick”, is fishing in places where the fisherman are very cool edge, but still densely “planted” shell, which often focuses a large predator, especially pike and seasoned deep pike.

To perform quality wiring step, for example, from the shore, it is also necessary to keep the “high top” and apply a thick braid, allowing the lure even on a steep slope to climb it the normal “step”.

This technique wiring is sometimes referred to as catching “retraction”. Alternatively, “correct”, but soft and short spinning cause it not to flop the retraction jig the lure to twist, and the fact that some areas will simply be dragged along the bottom with claws and the likely cutoffs braids with sharp edges of shells. In this case, the contact of the lure with the bottom needs to be reduced literally to the moment.

Another example of the use of “mighty” equip: fishing long and hard spinning for light lures, when in hot summer time in many places formed the so-called thermocline.

In this situation, many predators rise into the upper layers of the water, but more often tight out on the vast, windswept shallow water, where the depth rarely reaches two meters. And often there are fishing formed so that to fish from the shore can’t get no crank, no turn, because the dynamics of their flight, and even in the wind, leaves much to be desired.

But even excessively heavy jig bait can competently carry out melaku, not to mention casting distance if extremely long rod and put the reel thick line. Again, this will allow you to keep the “high top”, that is, will enable the bait to the next stage drop to the bottom a little more time to hang in the water column.

I could cite other examples where non-standard approach to spinning allows you to not only make the result, but to save a hopeless fishing.

However, it seems that every keen angler, not seeing the spinning only memorized the technical exercises will be much more interesting and useful to find effective solutions in different problem situations, with the result that sooner or later, to find his own unique style of fishing.


To maximize the power gear and work in snags with more confidence should be on one of the spools reel to reel braided line superfluous strength – up to 20 pounds in the gap.

This cord will remove the hooked bait in a violent manner, but, most importantly, thick lines, has an extended response in the aquatic environment, the PREROLL with a step-transaction, resulting in a higher rise from the bottom of even a relatively heavy lure.

That is, increasing the vertical component of the stroke at each “step”, and this in turn increases the number of bites and allows for a better “jump” over obstacles.
