We go fishing

The technique of fishing on the “bulldozer”. What kind of fish is being caught. The similarities and differences of the “bulldozer” from non-mountable mormyshek. The versatility of the bait.

Despite the strange name, implying something stupid, absurd, this bait is nevertheless very effective in catching a variety of predators. It can be a perch with a palm and a weighty humpback weighing a kilogram. Any other predator will not refuse the bulldozer. And here there can also be a large variation in the weight and size of the predator attacking the bait – from the mumps and gnarls to large predators. Something “bastard” fascinates the fish, and it grabs a clearly large bait for it.

“Balda”
“Balda”, so to speak, is part of the family of non-muzzle mormyshek and most of all resembles such bait as “devil”, “goat”, “jellyfish”. And well, if this bait will always be in the organizer of the fisherman.

“Balda”

What does the “bastard” look like uncovers and how is it different?
This is a fairly large and active bait, equipped with additional elements, which are cambric, shersinki, beads, that is, all that have no claws. But the “bulldozer” is more active and asynchronous in the movements of these elements, which literally enrages an active predator and it will attack if the bait is in its field of vision and the predator is not sluggish. Asynchronous play of additional elements is achieved in one case by stringing cambrices and beads on only one hook. In another case, the hooks are at different distances along the height of the body of the bait. And here we have to stop on the manufacture of bait.

What does the “bastard” look like uncovers and how is it different?

The body of the bait can be a lead casting with a hole at the top, a rod of randol, copper, a small-caliber bullet, even a cap from the handle. In a word, it can be everything that is at hand and can serve to make bait.

Usually, a fishing line or a flexible metal leash is threaded into the upper hole of the body of the bait, on which a double is freely suspended, and more often two single hooks with cambrices, beads, and wool.

Bait versatility
“Balda” is a universal bait, which can be successfully caught both in summer and in winter. Only in the summer the fishing principle is used, similar to fishing on a side nod. That is, a fast action rod is used, preferably with a side nod. Why fast action? So it will be easier to manage the bait and fish for large fish. A whip rod, of course, plays along with the bait better, but it will be more difficult to fish out.

Keep in mind that fishing line dropped vertically from the top of the rod may be shorter than the rod. Therefore, after cutting, you need to drain the right amount of fishing line from the reel so that you can reach the fish by hand.

Fishing Technique
The technique of fishing on the “bulldozer” consists in twitching the tackle and short posting up and down. This somewhat resembles the movement of a winter fishing rod and the vibrations of an mormyshka. Only here it will not work to create a frequency similar to winter mormyshka. But this is not required. “Balda”, and with mean movements, makes hectic active movements with hooks with cambrices, attracting a predator.
