To begin with, the fish start to float on the rivers can be even when the ice is, but the jet flow has to make its way along the coast. This year I started catching bleak at Dubna at a time when the water went over the ice. The ice on the bottom, about one meter above the ice melted, the water is still clear, and it is bleak. This small fishing on the river ends in two days. Then begins the flood due to snow melting.
The water is turbid, a very strong one. Catch seemingly nowhere, but it is possible. In small bays and coves, on a very small places, flooded coastal ditches and sleeves that connect to the high water river with jellied lakes have fish and can be caught. The main thing is to find any place in which sufficient depth (at least twenty centimeters) and the almost complete absence of flow. Such places can be detected visually, by turbidity.
Two variants are acceptable float rig. Firstly, of course, poludonka. Second, a very simple design of equipment, which consists of a float, a sinker and a hook on a short leash. The float is better to take one point of attachment, since neither of which the technique of artificial wiring can not speak. From natural wiring options are two: a drawing swim bait on the bottom and swim with the drawing on the bottom of the sinker. It all depends on the strength of the flow, since flow field without any fish is likely to have, by weight, and a weight. I pick up the first load to drawing accompanied by occasional stops at the bottom of the irregularities. Then sinker to pick a minimum carrying capacity of the float, which is easy to do with floats from one point of attachment with silicone cambric.
If no bites from the bottom or not the fish are biting, for which you are hunting, you can try to catch up. It is possible that at the boundary of the flooded vegetation, between the bushes, behind headlands formed projections flooded the coast, continue to climb or descend the river roach, ide, carp or bleak, then you need to swim to catch. This happens when the water is not too turbid. It is important to see the first bite, then it will be known to the horizon on which the fish is.
Snap-ins require the most stable and simple in design. From techniques can only advise periodically hold a snap, especially at points where they were biting. If you try to catch in the upper layers of water, it will almost certainly come across bleak, and the water is cloudy, the smaller bite bleak, but there is a possibility of bites rather large roach, chub and sabrefish. Just to keep in mind that sabrefish not approach the shore, and to catch it, you need to be sure that it is. In this case, you will need a rod length of at least seven meters, but often not enough, and eleven meters.
The most difficult to start or has already started, will melt when the ground water. Turbidity is maximized, the fish is pressed to the bottom and to the beach. Can not catch on the shore at the border flow, that is just a few tens of centimeters from the water, at a depth of 20-30 cm from the bottom. Oddly enough, but you can count on significant trophies in the form of roach, carp and even large bream. The bait is almost exclusively worm caddis less, depending on the specifics of the pond.
Interestingly, at the peak of the flood rises up carp. Lifting up the small river carp ends as soon as the flood passed its peak. For two days, he is in the upper, and then rolls down, or comes in floodplain lakes. That’s when carp can be detected visually and catch a worm, and without any difficulty. Before that, during the rise of the river, effectively manage to catch carp feeder or tackle or poludonkoy and of course the plug.
Every day the water level will drop, and the transparency increases. As soon as the turbidity of the water falls below a certain level, will catch in a classic wiring. The same period of fishing, but more short-term, is to intensive thawing of ground ice. In the first period, when lakes and reservoirs is still ice and water in the river is still clear, there is a course of roach and ide. Catching on strong and uneven flow in the turbid or muddy water is very little different from the summer, but more monotonous due to the nature of the flow. If you can not drag the bait along the bottom, then the loose wiring with priderzhkami snap. Specific requirements for snap-ins – maximum stability, ie a rapid return to the working position after being hit by another twist of water.
Floats need compact, spindle-shaped, with a long keel. Kiel may not necessarily be severe, that is made of metal, but the length of that arm was greater among lower mounting point on the center line and force application. It becomes feasible ogruzku distributed along the length of the descent. If the slope is small (half a meter), and for a strong and uneven, it is best to leave one sinker. The weaker and more for the depth, the more even distribution of ogruzki be on line, that is, again gradually come to the old version.
I really like to catch around the coast, especially on a small river. This option is good in that it is the most reliable regardless of the level and turbidity. Very often it is possible to catch roach, bleak, bream and carp.
I choose a straight section of the coast, which is about twenty centimeters in depth starts no more than two feet from the water’s edge. Visually clearly visible fracture on the bottom edge of the flow. Rod length of the two, at least three meters. So «long» rod is necessary in order to release the snap along the coast away from him. Fish may even be within arm’s reach, but, feeling the movement on the shore, only to peck at some distance. It makes sense to use a little bit of bait. I usually mix a few handfuls of bait for cold water with three times the amount of earth or sand from the shore. If you can, then add the mixture into the prepared large moth, his crush, to enhance flavor. Half of bait do three or four balls and lower them into the water one by one to the border and downstream, at a distance of 20-30 cm from each other. That is, I form a track. Immediately after making the bait rod is equipped with «ukleechnoy» snap and catch in the swim with a scratching or drawing on the bottom, occasionally lifting the bait above the bottom. A few entries found out what fish is here, and in half an hour – some fish reacted to the bait. Of course, before the lure, it is necessary to ensure the availability of fish, at least some. It usually starts with small bites bleak, but then comes everything. After the capture of couples or small gusterok plotvits makes sense to add a ball of bait. Depending on the response of fish supplemental foods, we need to continue or discontinue feeding bait. Once again, the bite will start to subside, or to peck only small bleak, it is necessary to make a choice. Or, again, lure, or relocate. It is better to change the place, although in the first case increases the likelihood of catching big fish.
The design of the snap suggest using the most thin fishing line, which is less than «sails» in water. The thicker the line was, the more severe snap will have to use, otherwise the lure is not predictable. Despite the fact that the bite will be visible on the relatively rough snap, but it is very much to be «empty» cuttings. Fish on the course can not only quickly enough, but throw the bait. Personally, I snap a weight greater than one gram even take with me. If the weight of such equipment is not enough to lure a controlled move, then I change the location or point of fishing.
