Choice of fishing tank
How to choose a fishing tank? Mesh size and material of manufacture. The selection of the length of the cage. Averaged version of the cage, between sports and amateur.
Choosing a fishing tank. Here we will focus on choosing a cage for recreational fishing, given that the target can be a large carp, a crucian carp, a bream, and a fish that lives in many of our Russian waters. This fish is considered medium-sized, somewhere even weedy, for example, bleak, the number of the catch of which is not even regulated by the new rules of fishing. And for a fisherman, a bleak is also a joy for the soul, especially those who yearned for winter fishing, and a completely valuable product. From bleak it turns out a great fry of the type of seeds that are crunchy on the teeth – an excellent snack for beer. In addition, bleak can make great sprats, salted, smoked. This is a fat and tender fish that I would like to keep alive until the end of fishing. But it is not possible to do this in every garden. Usually from metal and most of the cages, it runs away due to a rather large cell.
Cage mesh size and material
Zadok, presented in the photos, is a product from the grid, in which there are no knots. And this is a very important factor for the preservation of any fish, small and large. The cell size of this grid is 10 millimeters. Little – you say. It will sail on the course, the mucus of the breams and other “snotty” fish will be difficult to wash out, which means the cage will smell unpleasant. Yes, and this can be called a disadvantage of this charge. But, I think, this drawback can be overcome by soaking the cage for some time with a detergent non-aggressive solution, washing and drying thoroughly after fishing. Do you think that a tank with a large filament mesh would be better washed? The mucus will also stick on it, especially at the joints of the threads. Is that the cage with a net of fishing line will be easier to clean after fishing, but rough fishing line can injure the fish, as well as cage cages with metal mesh.

Zadok, which I chose
The tank, which I chose and purchased before the upcoming fishing on a large crucian carp, can be called the average cage variant between the sporting type and the most amateur one, which is almost an economic netting bag. If the sports pitch can be up to four to five meters long and 40-50 cm in size with a square hoop, then the cage has a length of 1.7 meters with a circular hoop diameter of 33 centimeters, which is the norm for this kind of cage. Even a cage with 30 cm in diameter can be called quite working and optimal for fishing on any “white” fish. In addition, the relatively small netting of the cage is an advantage over the larger meshes of some sports cages, which carps and common carcasses simply cut with their fins.
Based on my experience, I think that the length of this cage with an average person’s height is enough to place it on the shore for comfortable fishing, when you don’t have to reach for the cage to throw caught fish into it. Moreover, it is not necessary to push each fish through the neck of an already completely amateur tank, no longer than 50-70 cm long. This tank has a wide entrance, which is closed to a distance of one link of the tank with a dense, waterproof and hard cloth. This “armored” entrance protects the upper part of the cage from hitting with sharp fins of a fish. It is not always the prey that gets into the cage unhindered, especially when it is hurriedly thrown by the angler into the cage’s mouth. Most often we choose sloping shores for fishing and rarely fish from cliffs. Therefore, I think, the length of the cage in one meter seventy centimeters is enough for comfortable fishing. And most importantly, from such a cell the bleak and live stockpane, crucians, which can be put on toes for predatory fish, will not run away. In fact, I chose a universal cage, the qualities of which will be fully appreciated after fishing, to which this cage was purchased.
Important plus cage
But besides the above advantages, there are still important advantages of this tank, which consist in its transportability in assembled form. In the case, the cage takes up minimal space and weighs almost nothing, which is very important for fishing in wild places, where you have to walk a lot, or in places where it is forbidden to drive up by car. In addition, the length of the cage does not contribute to a strong discharge of it under the pressure of the flow, when compared with cages with a length of 4-5 meters. And this cage is easier to fix at the bottom with a rod threaded into a loop on the cage.
