Bad bream

Where to catch bream? Successful and effective methods of catching bream in bad weather. Tackle and bait for fishing.

During the period of autumn cooling with the arrival of long rains, northerly winds and a sharp change in water temperature, the fishing conditions also change sharply. This also applies to fishing for bream. What are the first noticeable changes in the conditions of fishing and the reaction of fish to these changes? Here you can immediately note the attraction of bream and other “white” fish to other deeper places. If in the summer, when breams are kept on small rivers along the edge of aquatic vegetation, especially if this edge coincides with the channel edge, then with a steady cooling, the fish selects deep-sea eyebrows in the whirlpools and under steep banks. As a rule, it makes no sense to throw a float fishing rod over a strip of water lilies where the greenery is still only touched by yellowness, but there are often fewer fish there. Even the small roach numerous here, literally teeming with grass in the summer, is moving somewhere at that time. A fish usually gets closer to the wintering pits. Continue reading

If we get lucky

Surprises of small rivers. How can you seduce an autumn pike on a small river.

It happens that you go around the banks with a spinning rod more than one whirlpool and reach, wave away more than one kilometer, but the river seemed to have died out. Here, it seems, is the crown place: a hole surrounded by reeds, in which icy sleepy water stands and slowly swirls. The fishing line rustled, shot up, and the bait went almost to the opposite shore. Bulk … Pause … But you can’t lower the snag to the bottom, and what is the snag hiding at the bottom? You spend the lure, it seemed, where the pike certainly should be: next to dry algae and reeds. Then you send her on a journey over the pit. And water is just as lifeless, and from this it gets colder on the heart. You sit down, smoke, cursing that again only admire the scenery. Have a bite of what God sent … well, there and not only what exactly God … It seems to get warmer somewhere inside, the icy gloom will thaw.
What, they say, to us? Is it empty for the first time to come back? As if in response to an optimistic mood, the sun looks out, and everything is already appearing in a different light. You send the snag again on free flight, but this time you are no longer afraid to catch the black and green driftwood snag. Spinner lay to the bottom. Continue reading

Deceiving freezing

Ponds for the yearning fisherman – a lifesaver, a priority opportunity to take your soul on ice fishing. Seven pikes on the pond in half a day.

Small lakes and ponds are glazed, ice covered unexpectedly quickly. On the rivers and in the bays of the reservoir, too, is a conditional pristine ice. Conditional due to the fragility and unreliability of ice. Somewhere you can safely walk and even run through the transparent bottomlessness, but in places every step was accompanied by a bang. A seemingly monolithic firmament was leaving and bending from under its feet. And from this choking and fading ice, the soul grew colder. Still, not twenty years old when everything was nothing. In addition, there is more than one cold bathing, both under the ice and in open water.

We are going to the pond. Morning is already turning blue in the windows of the car, sleepy copses and black tropes of fields and meadows flicker. Arable land and dry grass are barely covered by snow. The thaw bared them even more, the clayman spread it into the shiny mud, and from the damp fog of grass and Chernobyl it seemed as if they were silvered with many small drops. But the village pond has some kind of cold little world, apparently from close ice and openness to all winds. It is bordered by snow, as if in a frame. And the ice is also grayish-gray from a thin layer of snow. Continue reading
