Cooking bait for bream is not particularly complex. It can be used in summer on open water and in winter under ice. The effectiveness of self-made bait is quite difficult to confirm, as it is difficult to confirm the effectiveness of bait mixes that are offered to us by companies producing expensive bait like Sensas. This is a purely subjective factor. And to check whether bait works or not, you will only have to go fishing. Worse self-made, hand-made or not, than the store mix, but at least it is much cheaper, which is important if you regularly stay on the pond, for example, on vacation. Constantly acquire ready bait expensive. Yes, and it is not known, more practical value in store bait or more advertising moves of famous experts, which we see in the videos? Hard to say. It is likely that the demand for branded bait is simply artificially maintained by manufacturers of fishing products with the help of experts working for these companies. Continue reading
The spotted predator often chooses the places of hunting, densely overgrown with aquatic vegetation. In spring, in such places the water warms up much faster than in the river bed or in the pit of the reservoir. Therefore, in the thickets of old reeds, rich in insects and with warm water, comes various small fish, and behind it – predators. In the fall, small fish and predators also gather in shallow bays with already fading vegetation, only now to bask in the sun of “Indian summer” before the onset of cold weather. In the summer, pike hunts here for the same reason as in other seasons, that is, because of the abundance of food supply – small fish. Only now the pike goes to the shallow grassy grass early in the morning or at night, and during the day stands in the shadow of the shores or overgrowth of water lilies.
Fishermen call such places “toads”. Continue reading
So, the spawning ban was lifted. What fish and where are caught in June.
So, five days already, the spawning ban in the Republic of Mari El has been lifted in the water area of the Cheboksary reservoir and the rivers flowing into the reservoir. In the Kuibyshev reservoir, summer fishing began earlier – on 5 June. If we talk about the Kuibyshev reservoir, then in Mari El these are places in the area of Sidelnikovsky island, Kokshaysk, Urakovo, Kanyshevo, Shelangusha, and Black Stones. All this is a place of fishing from a boat to a side donk, a feeder and a “ring”, of course, for fans of such fishing, which usually happens on the water a lot. With the opening of the season, boat engines in the backwaters begin to roar, and breakers and sprinkles from motor boats that cut the waves are already visible on the Volga. This fishermen are in a hurry to anchor and wait for the biting of bream, sopa, ide, large roach, white bream, blue bream, that is, the usual Volga fish. And at the left low coast near the mouth of the Big Kokshagi can take a large crucian-buffalo. In the mouth of Malaya Kokshagi, which is located below Kokshaisk, there are bites of carp.

This story happened on Bolshoy Martyn Lake, on one of the very hot and sultry days when the air seemed to thicken, became hot and still. And it lasted a week, if not more. This ultimately had to lead to something. Such periods of complete calm and abnormal heat usually end in hurricanes and floods. But that day everything was different on the lake. At least on this lake. And then I heard that the hurricane had felled the forest somewhere in the area of the Ilet River and on to the village of Krasnogorsky. But – all in order.
And on the boat you did not fly
In the morning Pasha and I caught perch
He dragged Reds and prickly “sailors” from the raft, and I was catching perch near the boat. I also needed a boat from time to time to check for stubs placed along the edge of a strip of water lilies, which stretched across the very middle of the lake, starting from the ashes of the former winter houses and dugouts in a clean open meadow, and ending with a “squiggle” of water lilies in the direction the opposite shore, where in general everything is overgrown with grass. I set the fly-hooks in front of the pine knoll, where Pasha and I had set up a parking lot with a tent. Continue reading
The summer period is distinguished by relative comfort compared to the conditions of ice fishing and overnight stays with a severe winter time, when twenty degrees of frost and howling snow blizzards are not uncommon. In the summer of all this is not, but has its own characteristics, which also have certain disadvantages and inconveniences.
Features of an overnight stay in summer
First of all, before going fishing it is necessary to inquire with the relevant authorities, has a high fire danger been declared? In addition to the call to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, these data can be obtained in the media, namely in the newspapers and on the Internet, where the main news of the region is usually duplicated in online versions of newspapers. If this is not done, then in the hot summer period, when it’s time to relax on the river, fish, bathe, fry kebabs, cook fish soup, you can get a substantial fine. And the positive emotions from the rest by the water will turn into negative emotions, that is, the mood will be completely spoiled. In addition, you will have to pay money for making a campfire and visiting the forest in a special fire prevention regime. If you can get a fine of one and a half to three thousand for violating the rules of making a campfire in the woods, then in a special period you can get penalties from four to five thousand. And this is for citizens. Continue reading
