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.

Here it should be clarified that these events occurred after the next rainstorm, only this time of an unusually long and strong.

In the morning it seemed strange to me that crayfish began to crawl out onto the clay bank near the shore. This, of course, spoke of clean water, where these arthropods usually live, but why do they inadvertently expose their sides to lovers of beer with crayfish in broad daylight? Here crayfish, even with nets and hands, collect … Continue reading
