Hi guys,

Here are some pix from my trip to Volga (30.07-6.08 ).
Volga is the great russian river, the longest in Europe (3530 km). Our camp was 120 km down city of Volgograd. We did casting (asp, pearch, pike, pearch-pike) and trolling. Perfect place, perfect crew, perfect nature…

City of Volgograd (ex-Stalingrad). Here, between Don and Volga rivers, in 1942-1943 was the biggest World War II slaughter – Battle of Stalingrad… More than 2.000.000 (two MILLION) soviet and german soldiers and civilians was died….
‘Mamaev Kurgan’ – point of bloodiest combats in 1942-1943. We must remember it.

michaelaga,

I've used my travel kit. Casting - Shimano Exage STC 270 rod, Shimano Ultegra 4000 reel, 0,13-0,15 PowerPro braid. Trolling - Shimano Exage AX STC Trolling rod, Abu Garcia Ambassadeur C6 reel, 0,20 PowerPro braid.

Lures. Asp - casting, only ACME Castmaster (16 and 21g), no leader. No trolling. Pike - casting voblers (minnows), poppers, spinnerbaits, Mepps and Bluefox vibrax (for small grass pikes), jigging acid colours twisters. Trolling - bright deep voblers (8+ m), fire tiger color - the best. Pearch - mepps+bluefox, no trolling. Pike-pearch - jigging with heavy heads on the stream, but results was poor - too hot water... Trolling – the same like for pikes (we got 4 pearch-pikes).
By casting asps we caught many herrings = Alosa (Caspialosa) kessleri volgensis  For 1 bit of asp – 3-4 herring bites.

Castmasters on the picks of rods

Image

Halco Sorcerer at work. Pikes

Image

Image

Image

Pike-pearch too

Image

Hooked a baby-Sterlet. Forbidden for angling, released.

Image

Asps, herring inside

Image

‘Buffalo’ – mix of wild carp and crucian carp

Image

After morning session - small pearch, herring, 2 pikes about 1 kg, 2 pike-pearches, 2 pikes

Image

Preparing before cooking

Regards,

Perkeo,

Nice fish and fishing there. Any muskies in that river?
I might be fishing a lake for some bass coming Sunday. There are some some Pikes and Muskies, but I don't think I will get one of those without a boat. Geting to that lake is going to be a long hike for me without a car :(

Hi Maruthu,

what you mean - muskies? If it's about maskinongs - no, in russian fresh waters are only pikes.
