From my last experience and from what I can read on Russian forum since yesterday - whitefish has moved from last spots.
I was able to get one 3kg near the dock casting as far as I can to the middle of the river but its dead otherwise. Still no new hotspot, will inform ya folks if I find anything!
My current go to place for carps at 94:57, setups and details below:
Best to use Halibut/Salmon boilies, NC and Algae also works. At night you can switch to frogs or fish meat for Burbs. The 29kg Sturgeon was also on Salmon 20.
I use to fish in Sura with same reel and it was fine for most fish but it takes lots of time to reel one in but its ok if you have lots of line. My suggestion is - put 17kg line instead of 22 kg one, if you get anything near 22 it will spool you anyway. Better have more line than short stronger one imo.
Also get rid of steel leader and put mono/nylon one - it can scare the fish and Sturg has no teeth.
