Wobblers for fishing from the coast

Coastal wobblers have no aggressive action. Even when driving fast, they will sway lazily from side to side, but that's why they imitate Tobias so well.
I consider, that it is one of the most beautiful fishing experiences – after a few hours of fishing from a sea beach, we suddenly feel a powerful jerk. The take is so unexpected, that he almost grabs the stick from our hand. Previously, there was no indication of this, that there is even one sea trout in the fishery, and yet the silver sea torpedo appeared out of nowhere and right there, where our spinner was heading alone to the shore. Something like this is never forgotten for the rest of your life.
Everyone can afford fishing in the Baltic Sea, which is full of beauty. In some countries, the coast is free to fish, in others, a special license must be purchased. Usually, such a permit is very cheap. Sea fishing itself is extremely simple – all you need is a stick, fishing line reel, podbierak, a few spinners and you are ready to fish. If someone does not have hunting spinners in his box yet, he should first go to a tackle shop in any seaside town. After getting inside, you immediately get nystagmus – hundreds of sea trout lures, each one of a different color, each different shape. Everything in a word, what a rational person can only imagine.

A wonderful wobbler

Being unable to grasp such a huge offer, we ask the seller for help. We find out, that silver spinners are the most effective in the sea – green, silver – blue, golden, copper and green – yellow. The shape and weight of the lure and the thickness of the plate, which it was made of decide about the parameters of the spinner. Unfortunately, we are not able to check these properties in the store. Above the water, we pay attention first of all to the behavior of the lure in the air. Let's always try to throw it like that, to make the spinner fly in the air like an arrow. A calmly gliding spinner will fly much further, even from a heavier one, but the spinners fluttering in the air. The thickness of the metal plate and the shape of the lure determine the sinking in the water. Many models of spoons are great to rotate around their axis, for example, while sloping down. Thanks to this, it takes much longer to reach the depth of the bait, on which there are already snags.

Very likely, that in the tackle shop the seller will advise us, for us to buy, several models of sea lures. We have heard so many fascinating stories about this lure, that we immediately decide to buy it. However, we experience great disappointment at the water. None of the expensive wobblers works like this, as we expected it. It is difficult to talk about any action here, since this lure is lazily swaying from side to side, it is just “slipping away” in the water on the tip of the rod you cannot see the work of such a wobbler. It doesn't even compare to a good pike wobbler, which causes the rod tip to vibrate rhythmically with each turn of the handle.

I know many fishermen, who were so disappointed after a few trial sea wobblers, that they never gave this bait a chance again, so that it can prove its effectiveness. The first impression is unfortunately very misleading. Extremely effective wobblers for fishing in the sea were invented quite a long time ago, somewhere at the turn of the sixties and seventies. I don't know who and where in Denmark started fishing with this lure first, But I know one hundred percent, that it was the Danes who invented wobblers for spinning from the coast. Of course, those first wobblers were not so smooth, beautiful and perfectly finished like today's lures. But they were definitely just as effective.

The wobbler model with a classic grooved head, originating from the island of Funen, has gained recognition among sea anglers all over the world. In Germany (mainly in Kiel and Hamburg) you could buy these wobblers more than twenty years ago. Even in Scottish fishing shops I have seen sea wobblers "made in Danmark" several times.

All parameters are important for the producers of these lures – mass woblera, volume, sinking speed, flight behavior in the air, color (the possibility of observation by the angler) and working in water. A 20 gram wobbler sinks much slower than a 20 gram spoon, because the displacement, plastic or wooden body of the wobbler to a large extent "balances" the own load of this lure (lead in the body). Relatively large mass of sea lures combined with their other properties, namely, slowly sinking into the water, this is undoubtedly one of the biggest advantages of this lure.

When spinning from the sea beach, you rarely fish in deep places. Otherwise, a good quality wobbler has such a selected shape, that it always flies perfectly in the air. The Swedish "Gladsax" looks like a missile and flies like a missile. This wobbler glides much further than any spoon of the same weight.

At the wobbler at sight

After falling into the water, the wobbler for sea fishing drops down a few meters and you initially lose sight of it. However, if it is red, besides, the angler stand is on some platform, let's say on a stone, After winding a few meters of the line, you can see it perfectly and you can follow its every move. When fishing with the sight method, it is almost always possible to see the fish leading the wobbler away, and then, by properly moving the lure, she is often provoked to take a bite. It is a very relaxing and extremely effective method of fishing, However, it requires from the angler not only perseverance, but also constant concentration.

Finally, a few words about the work of sea lures. These lures do not have rudders that would allow descending to greater depths. Body asymmetry slightly, often completely invisible to the naked eye, makes, that the wobblers move slightly sideways in the water. This lure with every stroke of the line (the rod, reel handle) it rolls back and forth, once the other way, that is, it moves like this, like most healthy fish.

Aggressive "tremors" of a typical pike wobbler are not a good point of reference when assessing the work of a sea wobbler.

Any angler trying to catch sea trout in the sea, sooner or later he will have the opportunity to observe natural behavior, unsettled tobias. These small fish are the favorite food of sea trout, should be an example for our lures to follow. Tobias swim quite "stiffly" and rarely bend sideways. Write paint, as well as a wobbler slithering lazily in the water. If someone is fishing at sea with aggressive bait, and then he is surprised, that there are no bites, he is only to blame for himself.
