Fishing line requirements
The line requirements are also different. For a river with its strong course, braided fishing line that does not have elasticity and cuts water well is best suited. In addition,…

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

What sick fish in rivers and lakes

About the most common parasites living on the bodies of fish. The questions of their vital activity are covered, whether parasites are so dangerous for humans, and much more.

Parasitological analysis of fish
Systematic scientific research that allows us to create a more or less complete list of fish parasites has not been carried out here since the 60s of the last century !!! There are, of course, very good and interesting works on this topic, but they relate, as a rule, to one reservoir or a specific species of fish, or a specific parasite (group of parasites). And so, to look and describe everything in a row, making a complete parasitological analysis of all types of fish, in all regions of the country (from the capital to the outskirts), in various reservoirs, in all seasons of the year – this has not happened for a long time.

Although, of course, in order to study in detail the parasitofauna (totality of parasites) of all species of fish in all reservoirs of the country, the work of several large institutes would have been required over the course of several generations. But it’s better to give a small piece of live, real information than not at all. 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
