  1. Hi all! Another nice spot for baitfish rig I've found. You'll find there nice chars, nice lake trouts, nice arctic chars, some good sevan trouts and some decent rainbow trouts (not on the next screenshot). I got a trophy char at this place. I used mainly roaches (the trophy char took it), the best for me. White breams give some nice lake trouts and some good chars, ruffes give a bigger proportion of chars. The final net was pretty nice, and still would have been without the trophy . Results for 1h30of fishing: Coords: 112.94 G6 (aim the green circle on the screenshot) Clip: 30m Setup (baitfish rig) Best weather: sunny

  3. Hi all! I'm testing different spots with some baitfishes, and I've found an interesting one for the rainbow trout. I think there's potentially a nice trophy ont the area. There are some nice chars too. The final result is pretty nice , for only 1h of fishing with baitfishes. The baitfish working the best for me was the roach. Results: Coords: 92.100 E6, cast to the smallest deep hole Clip: 32m Setup
  4. Hey everyone! An actual good place for white bream and crucian carp at Bear Lake. Species: White Bream and Crucian Carp Map: Bear Lake Coords: 55.33 F7 Clip: 15m Setup (classic hair rig)
  5. Hi all! Finally closed the book at Mosquito !!! Specie: Perch Map: Mosquito Lake Coords: 96.77 I5 Casting distance: max 20m, they bite mostly within this distance, and with shorter casts, you will optimize the number of your tries during the "hot" hours . Setup (jigging rig) When/Weather: caught during the evening, under the rain. The morning and the evening are the best moments (biterate and size) Other: you can try other luras as the classic shads for example. I tried the fluo yellow, it gave interesting results. You can also try with nightcrawlers on the bottom while you cast your lure. It's effective too.
  6. Hello all . A short post for beginners who desire to farm some breams at night. Here is a spot I've tried during the night. The camp looked so comfortable, I decided to stay there. Coords: 54.75 C5 Clip: 12-15m, cast towards the 2m area Setup (loop rig) / Groundbait : classic bream mix Results:
  7. Hi all! A little update about spots and baits. 98.157 seems to be not active anymore. 108.129 still active. Baits: the mayfly works quite nice too now. So you can try those sandwich baits: mayfly + nighcrawler mayfly + gammarus mayfly + caddisfly gammarus + nightcrawler gammarus + caddisfly nightcrawler + caddisfly New active spot: 138.196 E4 Clip: 25m, casting upstream Depth for float: 2m-2,25m Fishes and nets (sessions of about 45min-1h15)
  8. Hi all! Here is a small update about my experiments. The weather: It seems that the longnose sucker is much more active in cloudy/rainy weather. The bite rate during sunny/hot weather decreases clearly. The period of the day: the activity is more important during the morning and evening. The average size of the fishes seems to be higher aswell during those periods. There are regular bites during daytime too, but from smaller fishes. By night, bites of the longnose sucker become less numerous. I've found an other active spot that is quite promising. There are some other fishes like the dolly varden, the whitespotted char (and some small sized coho salmon), even some rare levanidov chars. Coords: 108.129 D6 Clip and direction: 20m, casting upstream to south, then letting the float drift with the current. Depth for the float: 1,50-1,60m Results:
  9. Hi all! Here is my first approach of the fishing of this specie. I will develop only float fishing, and especially with the bolognese rig. This is not really a guide, it's more an experimentation report to give you, players, an idea of what to do. In addition, the used setups were based on my tests, so don't hesitate to propose better setups more adapted to this specie! As it's mentioned in the fish's description, this specie is mainly targeted with float and spinning rigs. The only exemplars that I caught on bottom rigs have bitten on lamprey baitfish. Not even on feeder rig (maybe one exemplar on hours of fishing with nightcrawlers). They seem to like lampreys, but the bite rate is very low (like maximum 2 or 3 fishes per day). And it would be a pity to target such a small fish with this bait (you'll get probably many unintented catches from salmonidaes ). I began with the match rig, but it's clearly not adapted for this kind of river with strong current. I experienced a lot of missed bites, it wasn't easy to perform good strikes with match rods. Bolognese rods seemed better to me, as they are longer and can offer a better lever arm for strikes in strong current and at quite high distance. I won't talk about telesticks, too stressing and too much work on this waterbody . Here is an example of setup : As you can see, I'm using quite strong leaders for a 1-2kg fish. It depends of the spot. For example, the spot I will present has a good population of coho salmons, and amazingly they bite not so bad on the baits intended for the longnose suckers. Some of them are very nice, over 4kg+, and fight very well. There are also some chum salmons. At a "less problematic" spot, populated with smaller fishes (I will present the spot aswell, but it seems to be inactive for the moment), you could use a lighter setup of course (maybe a little better bite rate). A leader of 3.6kg or 4.4kg is enough for a good specimen of longnose sucker. Consider it as a strong roach . The baits: I tried a bit of everything, and for the moment the nightcrawler and the gammarus (gammarus gives the best bite rate) are working the best. You can use them separately or in a sandwich. Nightcrawlers seem also to interest nice coho salmons. Caddisfly gives results too, but the average weight of the fishes seems to be inferior with it and smelts love them very much. The spot: Coords: 98.157 D5 Clip and direction: 25/30m and cast upstream, the float must land like 15m from the ridge, and you let it drift downstream. Fishing at a longer distance from the ridge works too; I've tried to fish at 30/35m from the ridge (with a bigger clip of 45/50m), but reeling in so much line each time you need to recast is a loss of time. Depth for the float: 1m70-1m80 Float fishing in a strong current like this requires much attention, to not lose the sight of your floats that can be quite far from each other. You'll have also to zoom in with the binoculars to see better the bites (at least longnose sucker's bite isn't subtle, you'll see your float sink quite quickly). You can also use the little zooming window to follow easily one of the floats. It's a quite funny method for those who like active float fishing . Results: The other spot seems to be inactive now, but has to be remembered for next migrations, you could give a try later: Coords: 271.157 J5 Clip: 30-35m, you perform a cast in the same direction as the stream, cast really near the ridge (around 2m from it) and you let the float drift with the bail opened till the clip is hit. You can get longnose sucker's bites all along the trajectory of the bait (at 30-35m too). Depth for the float: 3m-3m50 Setup used when it was active (I advise you to use bigger hooks, because the place is overcrowded with asian smelts that bite continuously on gammarus and caddisfly. It will help to filter fishes a bit. Here, use preferably nightcrawlers.): Results at this period:
  10. We let players figure out what works the best . But theoretically yes, perches must work, but how good they work you have to discover by yourself ^^.
  11. Hi Enzo! Actually, only the species avalaible on the map will work as baitfish .
  12. Hi all! I've discovered a spot that seems to be good for taimen fishing on baitfish, at Lower Tunguska River. I tried several spots, and 145.85 is the best place I found for the moment. The most attractive baitfishes for taimen seem to be perch and siberian roach (I also tried siberian gudgeon and siberian loach). I you want, you can give a try. As the biterate for taimen is really not bad, I think there's potentially a trophy waiting for its hour.

  15. Hi all! Specie: Beloribitsa Whitefish Map: Akhtuba River Coords: 120.75 F/G7 Clip: 19m Complementary informations: Presence of good asps and stellate sturgeons. Potentially trophy sizes. Setup (baitfish rig) => This setup is only for beloribitsa and asp, too weak for stellate sturgeons. Weather: sunny
  16. Hi man, It's possible to not do jigging, but it's still the best lure animation for them, no doubt about that. You can try something else, but as far as I know, it' remains the best.

  20. Hi all! Actually zanders are active at the 6m hole. There's a good hope for a trophy (required to complete the map's trophies challenge). It works fine with the baitfish rig, but also with soft lures (but less bites). Bleaks and clupeonella work very fine. Species: zander (also some asps, nice volga zanders and good chubs) Coords: 95.173 E1 Clip: 20m Setup (baitfish rig and jig rig) Baitfishes: bleak and clupeonella Lure: Quicker 4.5-007
  21. Hey man! This is 100% not a gudgeon. I think it's something like this : https://www.mindenpictures.com/stock-photo-bullhead-cottus-gobio-europe-naturephotography-image90165645.html It's a very nice little fish you caught!
