Analysis of underwater shooting perch. Conclusions to which earlier there were only assumptions.
A curious thing all the same – underwater photography. These perch-whales, puzzled looking at strange creatures that have fallen from above, have little resemblance to fish, but for some reason attractive. These approaches are curious yellow-eyed flock to the balancer, fading at the bottom after the passage of the “eight”, and jerks perch grabs the bait and immediately disappear into nowhere, or rather, into the hole of the fisherman sitting on the ice. All this underwater life in sight. And we can draw conclusions for which there were only assumptions earlier. Well, it can be seen that the lure falls exactly between the two yellow eyes of some kind of “sailor”, dodging right away somewhere in the underwater thickets and stones overgrown with grass. And behind him, and the pack rushes scatter.
It turns out that dumping baits at random, at once, can scare away a fish, especially if it has already gathered under the hole, attracted by the game of bait. It is better, apparently, to lower the lure like a jig, bringing it to the bottom with swaying. And then knock on the bottom of the bait, raising a cloud of dregs. It is also seen on underwater surveys that it is precisely these butts in the bottom and the stream running along the stream that is very interesting for curious perches. Often, immediately after them, some of the most decisive perch rushes to the spoon or balance.
Oddly enough, but the particularly intricate play of the blades is also not visible under water. Rather poorly lures play. And, probably, the reason here is not that the bait is bad or the game is wrong. Just the camera is in the same position and does not fix the main game of bait in the middle and lower layers of water. And the viewer sees only the last phase of the game spinners or balancer at the bottom. And just on the damped oscillations, on a pause in the lower position, should be the grasp of a predator.
All bait colors are clearly visible.
And it is noticeable that the combinations of red with yellow, green interest perch. You can also see that too much front sight on the lower tee of the balancer impairs the game of bait.
These episodes of underwater shooting can help anglers to refine baits and fishing techniques. And they finally helped to determine why sometimes fully working and successful lures, usually stably bringing in prey, suddenly stopped working at a certain depth. And this can be determined not only by the absence of appendages, but also by the nature of the lure’s behavior. And what does it look like? A very simple.
Winter vertical blades, which are called gliders, in their usual game make deviations to one side or the other from the line going from the bottom to the hole. During such a deflection, the lure as if hangs and the fishing line on the fishing rod reacts to this with some weakening. When lowering to the bottom, such a planning bait does not give a strong jerk to the hand, but only slightly feels that the lure is at its bottom point at the bottom in a pause state. At the same time, the bait was raised up in the usual way for about forty centimeters with an average degree of vigor. And all this worked until a certain moment, that is, until the angler suddenly went to another deeper reservoir. And the difference in the depths was significant. And if the good old lure on the same place perfectly caught perch from a depth of two and a half, a maximum of three meters, then at the new place all navigation edges were at a depth of about four to five meters, often even more, and this is typical of the sections adjacent to the fairway Volga. And here the old methods and the old lure have stopped producing results. What is the reason? And underwater shots clearly showed this very reason.
It turns out that at a great depth many planning blades lose their ability to deviate to the side, that is, to plan, and they begin to fall to the bottom in the form of a nail or narrow spoon, which is called a nail.
What can be done here? There are two ways
The first is to choose a wider and curved lure, which in the normal mode of not very vigorous toss the bait up will work quite stably and at great depth. If you want to catch it on the familiar and good old bait, then you need to change the mode of throwing this very lure, namely – make the toss shorter, more energetic and sharp. The height of the climb should ideally correspond to the length of the bait, however short it may be. That is, the rise should look like a barely noticeable vskid udilnika whip up.
