Fishing in spring
Fishing in the spring on the spills and fields. Tackle and fishing technique.
During the flood of rivers filled with melt water, fishing is, as if in standby mode. It all depends on when the rivers enter the banks or at least the water level will be slightly below the upper edge of the banks. And this period can be called the off-season time, the transition period between winter and spring fishing in open water. But fishermen are impatient and enthusiastic people. And waiting by the sea is not in their habits. Therefore, each and at this time finds its fishing.
So what types of fishing are available during the spring flood?
If we talk about a large predatory fish, then on the spills and fields it is possible to catch pike on the live bait float, but only at this time it is not necessary to use live bait. You can settle on a beach or an island among a meadow flooded with water and throw a float fishing rod with a tassel of worms on a hook. But it is desirable that the worms are local, that is, living on this particular meadow or field. Not keen-smelling “dung” and bright red “leaf litter”, often living in gardens and orchards under the foliage and in the grassy turf, and the usual nondescript earthworms. It is good if there is some movement on the spill, and it usually happens. Although small, the current is even far from the river bed. In addition, when using a large float, which is usually used on “live bait”, it will definitely be pulled by the spring wind. Therefore, a large “fly” of actively moving worms will surely attract pike, although predator specimens may not be large in size. What is this fishing based on? After all, pike is a predator. But many fishermen have already noticed that the pike in the spring often takes the worm. And this is natural, since many fish, including pike, go to meadows filled with melt water to feed on worms that have crawled out of their burrows filled with water. Caught pike is often stuffed with worms, as they say, in the gills. No need to stand in ambush, guard small fish, especially since the water is muddy. Directly “under the nose” fatty worms crawl recklessly on the grassy shallows and clean patches of the earth. Why not seize the moment?
Float “live” is needed in order to tackle was still more powerful, equipped with a thin metal leash, better flexible, like a fishing line, from a powered material. In addition, if you catch on the river, it is better to put a hook with worms on the bottom and it will pull over. If the bottom is sandy or clayey, then the bait will move in spurts, and the bite will be visible due to the abrupt disappearance of the float. The triple hook can not be changed, and stick on the tee, as well as sprat on the perch, on each beard, one or two worms.
Here, on the river, you can use the so-called running donku
As such a donkey, spinning will go, equipped as a donkee, but at the same time it is better to put the leash on a metal, in extreme cases, from a fluorocarbon fishing line with a diameter of not less than 0.3 millimeter. The equipment of the undercarriage donkey may look as follows: a long leash with a hook is tied above the sinker in 18-20 centimeters. The length of the leash can be 50-70 centimeters. The weight is better to use the type of “pear” weighing about 15-17 grams. On a strong current, the weight of the sinker may be greater. Why do you need such a sinker? This is the most suitable form for broaching a sinker along the bottom. The technique of catching undercarriage is simple. After casting the bait to the bottom you just need to reel the line. The sinker will move along the bottom, and the leash with the worms flying in the flow will be higher than the bottom. The movement of the bait will be active, which will attract the predator.
Pike on the spring overflow of rivers
It is clear that all this fishing can be carried out in the period not prohibited by the new rules on fishing. The timing of the spawning ban in each region may be different.
Here, in the fields – flooded meadows and glades in the forest – you can catch roaches, which sometimes come out during these springtime trekking to these shallow waters warmed up by the sun and feed on the same worms in order to move forward again. Is it sometimes connected with the pause between the roach exits on the river during the ascent to the headwaters? Sometimes during the spring stroke, the rise suddenly stops even in good weather. And then it can be found on the river quiet waters, meadows and old women.
Spring Roach on Spill
In the fields, roaches can be caught with a light and long float rod, as well as with a lap-dog and with a side nod.
