Springtime is very well suited for feeder gear, but for fish, especially for cyprinids, a certain water temperature is needed, which often determines the activity of the spring bite. For such heat-loving fish like crucian carp and carp, the most optimal water temperature will be 15-20 degrees, but in spring the reservoirs are squeezed and the water in the bottom layer is often no warmer than 4 degrees Celsius. Fish adapts to such temperatures, but its activity, of course, will be lower than in warmer water. Therefore, in the spring, even for catching cautious carps, it is better to choose coastal areas of water bodies with shallow waters of 1-1.2 meters. Throw the feeder to a depth of 1.5-2 m and you can stay without a single bite for the whole daylight hours. This is due to the fact that the spring sun quickly heats the coastal areas with shallow depth. Moreover, the weather at this time is unpredictable and at around noon it often seems that summer has come. It can even be hot, especially in calm weather. It is clear, and the water can warm up to the optimum 15 degrees. Therefore, the fishermen who arrived at the dawn, and during the day had already rolled up the tackle, often lose their hours of active bite, when the fish have just started to take. At this time, the classic fishing dawn may not be relevant because of the low water temperature in the early morning. Continue reading
Classic donka with rubber shock absorber. What is tackle and how to catch it.
As you know, the tackle consists of a stock of the main line, undergrowth with leads and hooks, a rubber shock absorber, more often – the notorious “Hungarian” with a round cross-section or multi-layered durable rubber 10-12 meters long. On a strong current, a longer shock absorber sails heavily and often breaks. Having fixed the reel with the main line and the undergrowth on the shore, the cargo is usually delivered by boat to the critical tension of rubber (more often – by 30-50 meters) and denote it by a buoy. Then, having made hooks with mouth-watering sandwiches made from dung-worms and maggots, the line is carefully lowered into the water. You can sound poklevki bell. This is for the night. But in the afternoon, they hold a fishing line in their hands and mock the sackcloth with long braces, because this crafty fish loves the game of bait, like a perch, on occasion, it will not refuse to grab a fry. Therefore, hooks with a bright shiny finish are desirable for tooling. Bites are felt as dull tremors or a sudden weighting gear. Some fishermen, feeling a similar push, coolly spit on the sides and choose the tackle only after the third, and even the fourth bite. What, they say, idle water zatit? Continue reading
We will help the fishermen to understand the advertising mist that sellers let in to sell new baits, baits and gear. Are they catchy like we are told.
Nowadays, fishing advertising, pushing sales of new gear, baits, baits, usually presents them as “improving catches.” This is usually not a blatant lie, but it is impossible to call such statements true, but half the truth is not worth much for a fisherman, and the higher this awareness, the more and more often you fish.
As one famous satirist used to say – “how much to hang”? So how much does it improve catches? Always, everywhere, at all? And does it improve at all? It is clear that there is a common excuse about the fishing interest, they say, if not even catchy, it is interesting to try a new thing. And I’m not interested if it doesn’t add in quantity, quality of catches, and I’m sure that I’m not alone in this, because there is plenty of interest directly in the fishing process.

Masking gear tackles in summer and winter. Probably every fisherman had to face the problem of preserving his fixed gear from ruin and abduction. The onlookers idly wandering along the banks and embankments of the rivers flowing within the city boundaries strive to spoil and destroy the tackle. They often cannot indifferently pass by the tackle installed on the shore, if the fisherman either slumbers nearby or has retired somewhere in his business just for a couple of minutes. Returning, he may find that someone’s disgusting hand has already walked through his parking lot and tackle.
No less worry is delivered by vacationers who rent boats and hang on them in all directions with noise and din, throwing garbage overboard and for some reason having time to pull out the poles of pockets. It is absolutely impossible to explain these actions with some logic and common sense. Okay, they would just pull out the poles, although it is not clear here – why? But it also happens that with the flyer-cracker attached to the pole of the pole, it is pulled out of the bottom and thrown onto the water. Where is the meaning and at least some explanation of these actions? Therefore, in recent times I have been trying not to catch on live-stock fixed gear within the city, although there are plenty of pikes in the city river. If I am setting up summer slants, then for a short time the dawn. Continue reading
Where to catch bream? Successful and effective methods of catching bream in bad weather. Tackle and bait for fishing.
During the autumn cooling period with the arrival of long rains, northerly winds and abrupt changes in water temperature, fishing conditions also change dramatically. This also applies to catching bream. What are the most noticeable changes in the conditions of fishing and the reaction of fish to these changes? Here you can immediately notice bream and other “white” fish to other deeper places. If in summer, when bream stick on small rivers along the edge of aquatic vegetation, especially if this edge coincides with a riverbed brow, then with a steady cold snap, the fish chooses deep-water edges in pools and under steep banks. As a rule, it makes no sense to throw the float fishing rod over the strip of water lilies, where the greens are still touched by yellowness, but there are often few fish there. Even the numerous small roach here, in the summer literally teeming with grass, moves somewhere at this time. A fish is usually moved closer to the wintering pits. Continue reading
