Bits for fishing from the ice

Bits for fishing from the ice

By the end of the winter when ice thickness meter please fish with nozzles is not so simple. Urban anglers usually used those sold in fishing stores. Rural lovers of fishing from the ice extracted nozzle often hoard their own or with the autumn rainy day.


Red, sometimes bright ruby ​​color mosquito larva-derguntsa rescues fisherman all year round. Especially when fishing from the ice, when the choice of nozzles is reduced to a minimum. As the nozzle is generally used bloodworms length of 15-25 mm for bait — small larvae (10-12 mm).

Save delicate larva is quite difficult. It is best to keep the moth at a temperature of 0 to 4. The fact that this gentle head only brings success angler when he is able to keep it alive. As they say, in its original form. In contrast, in winter the summer to make it still easier. However, we must remember that in sub-zero temperature, in contrast to the maggots, bloodworms dies.

To learn how to deliver a moth to the place of fishing in need as I had several conversations with the people who mined bloodworms. Terms of transportation and storage, as it turned out, are as follows. Motyl can not supercool and overdry, it should be wet, to have access to fresh air. Usually fishermen–winter road, traveling at a relatively proximal reservoirs deliver moth (and fodder, and nozzles), putting a layer of no more than 0.5 cm in damp old newspaper of several layers. Well, if you will long trip on the train or in the car? In this case, it is best to use a special bag–thermos in which the positive temperature close to zero degrees.

Before going out on the ice right amount moth spread on paper, dried for 5-7 minutes and placed in motylnitsu (in the summer in a damp rag, winter — dry). Skewer bloodworm on a hook, keeping carefully to the contents of the smaller larvae emerged.

Using a special vyazalki sometimes have pre-harvest bunches of bloodworm, pulling their thin rings cut from the nipple gum. Motyl, bound in bundles under water for longer stays alive, it does not follow from the content. Naturally, the fish takes a bait rather. Most often used for beams of the winter fishing of bream.


With regard to the storage of maggots, then all is not so simple. For long-term storage of larvae is placed in a glass bottle, half filled with oatmeal or bran. The vial was tightly capped, sealed in a plastic bag (for hygiene) and stored in the refrigerator or in the cellar of ice. At a temperature of 0 to –2 degrees is freezing maggots, falling into a state of suspended animation. In the winter on the balcony it is heat resistant up to –30, but it should gradually revive, without sharp temperature drop. As for short-term storage (up to a week or more), it is sufficient glass vial with maggots placed in a cooling chamber with a positive temperature.

Baits maggots depending on the intended type of fish for one or more of the larvae. On the hook, he holds firmly. Sting put slightly outward, otherwise it will be a lot of empty cuttings. After catching a fish, it is desirable to add at least one fresh maggot on the hook, since spilled maggot less attractive to fish. Anglers-use winter roads as spiking maggots on the hook spinners, and jig.


So in the tiny fishing slang called, length of only 1.5-2 mm, white or cream-colored moth larva burdock, which from autumn to spring lives in seed knobs and stems of thistles (burdock).

Beginning in late fall, the larvae can be harvested for future use. To this end, sent to any vacant lot, including urban areas. Finding dried burdock bushes, touch chosen dense bumps and hulled them to determine hardening in which the larvae are sought. Harvested seals kept in a wooden box on the balcony or in the refrigerator. The larvae are well tolerated in the winter. By the way, they can be stored in the seed itself knobs, placing last in the package, and endure to the balcony. The bumps larvae live all winter. Fishing nozzle kept in a dry foam box or motylnitse.

The larvae that live in the stems of thistles, harvested in the winter follows. Stems are cut, purified by branches linked in bunches and stored in air. Before their fishing digested knife and gently remove the larvae.

But what if you do not take care in advance of such a fine nozzle? Some anglers prefer to stock brambles on the way to the pond.
When fishing as mormyshechnuyu and on float tackle using such «delicate» hook attachment, respectively, shall be smaller sizes — Number 20-18, from a thin wire. And, of course, need the maximum light line and light udilnik. Skewer usually 2-3 larvae or catch on «a sandwich» — combined with bloodworms.


The larva is yellowish in color, living in the dried stalks of mugwort. In winter it has successfully «competes» hooked jig with burdock moth larva. On the way to the pond, you can get mugwort on any vacant lot. For this purpose, a knife cleaved dry stalks and finding larvae gently removed them. They live, usually in colonies. Some stalks of the larvae happen to a dozen or more.

In the case where it is necessary to save the extracted larvae a week or two, they are placed in a box of dry wood rot and put on a balcony.
Most often hooked jig mugwort is pushed in conjunction with bloodworms. However, the best results are obtained gluhozime a tiny jig fishing, baiting a 1-2 yellowish larvae. Booty — perch, roach, bream, silver bream.

GRUB stoneflies

Unlike butterfly stoneflies, of greater interest to the angler is her larva, especially when fishing at the end of the freeze-up, when the choice of bait is limited. Mined grub, raising the bottom of the aquatic vegetation. This is done using a long stick with a flyer at the end, which is lowered into the hole and turning around an axis, wound up tufts of grass, and then raise them on the ice. Larvae collected stoneflies store with vegetation taken from the reservoir.

Bark beetles

Bark beetles (zakorniki, podkoryshi) — is a generic name that the fishermen gave the larvae of some beetles, wood borers, laying eggs under the bark of stumps, fallen or dried on the vine trees. Legless larvae are white or yellowish cylindrical, sometimes flattened body. Developing they accomplish numerous passages in the cortex and in the timber.

Extract of bark beetles using a hatchet under the bark in forest clearings, as well as firewood. For tips to better select small and medium-sized larvae.
Best nozzle considered white larvae beetle barbel, living mainly in the bark and wood of pine. On bark willingly take many fish.
Pushed onto the bark beetle bright №17-10 hook under the head, sometimes as a worm. First tip pierce the solid head, and then give birth to a hook in the body of the larvae so that it completely disappeared in it, along with a ring or a spatula. When fishing jig using the smallest larvae or large pieces.
After vyvazhivaniya few fish larvae fray, but that only adds to nibble. Fresh podsazhivayut maggot on the hook, as a rule, at a time when it remains only an empty shell. Zakorniki yellowish color, which normally live under the bark of larch and fir trees, stronger hold on the hook, but the fish are taking a little bit worse.

Having the experience of fishing with bark in Siberia, I have often used this attachment on various reservoirs median strip in the winter. In particular, I’ve successfully catch on beetle larvae, barbel big roach on the Rybinsk Reservoir. So if for some reason your fish under the hole «on strike»Try to offer her bark. The effect can be most unexpected.


For fishermen caddis larva of interest is that they are for the sake of brevity referred to simply as caddisflies or Shitikov. This is one of the best baits considered «delicacy» when fishing for a variety of fish, especially carp.

Lives shitik usually clean running water, but it can also be found in lakes, ponds and reservoirs in shallow areas, especially where submarine springs are beaten or fall into the pond cold streams. The larva builds himself under water «lodge» — Case of fine plant debris, fragments of shells, sand grains, or even simply gets into pieces of hollow stalks of plants, such as horsetail. She sat in a «house» rather firmly, attaching of it with a pair of hooks arranged at the rear part of the body and exposed outside the head. It feeds on plant food and garbage. He lives about a year, and then transformed into an insect.

To dial the desired number of caddis flies, they go into the water (in the winter in the ice streams) and collect larvae from the bottom sunken grass stalks and branches. Pull the striker out of the case should be carefully pulling it with some effort for a head. In central Russia, there are many ice-free rivers and streams where you can dial caddis in the winter.

Caddis larvae eat a lot of fish, but especially to them indifferent roach. Fishing Shitikov store without removing it from «houses», Wet moss or lightly moistened rag.
