Why catch pike in the fall?
Pike is the most aggressive predator of fresh water in the middle zone. Depending on the time of year, her behavior may vary. It is in the fall that the easiest way to catch a pike is because it begins with something like an “autumn zhora”, which lasts from about mid-September to early November.
How to catch a pike in the fall
It is not difficult to catch a pike in the autumn, as this is the best time of year to catch it. Before you figure out what to catch a pike in the fall, you need to find its habitat. If in the summer the pike chooses its own territory and protects it, hiding in the algae, then in the fall, on the contrary, the fish combine into small flocks and hunt fry.
What to catch a pike
Poppers and wobblers are the most suitable bait for pike. Popper is a bait that floats on the surface itself and produces squelch, that is, imitates the behavior of the fry. A wobbler is considered a more popular bait, its depth is no more than 1.5 meters.
There are more bait options: turntables and live bait.
At the beginning of the autumn season, pikes are very mobile, so the bait should be chosen more active. By the end of the season, the predator becomes slower and lazy (this behavior is required to save energy and fat reserves), so you need to choose a calm and large bait.
