Feeder on the river in August

Feeder on the river in August

August is one of the most popular months for fans of feeder fishing. Sensing the imminent arrival of autumn, big fish starts to gather in flocks and hard to eat. However, unlike in September, it does so at the summer places.

There is a paradoxical situation — on an even run of the river with a depth of 1.5-2 meters in August, sometimes accumulates a number of bream and white bream, that’s amazing. And this despite the fact that the July fishing in this place brought a couple of bream. A similar situation is created and the other white fish — roach, silver bream, chub. The only exception is the ide that does not get in packs, and kept in small groups of 3-5 individuals.


For August feeder fishing should be deep enough to choose places with weak or moderate course and depth of not less than 1.5 meters. Good straight runs located at the exit of the pits with a reverse flow. As a rule, such runs out to feed various white fish are kept and the predator: If the feeder is stopped biting sharply, do not be lazy and try to catch a spinning at this point — Who knows, maybe blame the pike, suddenly came up to tame the point? In my experience, one of the favorite places of August is a way out of the pits on a smooth run, where a 50-meter section of the river depth varies from 3.1 to 2.2 meters. It is this upper point, covered with stones, not once brought me a large bream. Due to the sharp rise and the presence of stony debris, there lingers great food, which collects larger fish.

No less catchability will input into the pit, which mark the boundaries of jet itself. In such places fish perfectly «drawn» bait from the main area of ​​the pit. Fishing in these areas is very often the nature of waiting — a speedy approach can not count the fish. Sometimes, after the first casting to the first bite may take several hours, during which the angler methodically «feeds» point. However, if you really liked the fish, the bite is followed on each cast.

When catching a big chub and ide great work place, close to the shoals — both in front of them and after them. On most rivers of the middle zone as the entrances to the roll, and the exit from it, there are quite noticeable deepening — here and prefers to feed on the chub, gathering over food borne. The feeder allows you to tackle fixed set feeder, without causing suspicion among the fish.

Another great place for feeder fishing sand bars are ending the deep pit. It is like watering and goes to feed the big fish. Fishing in these places brings maximum results at night when all the fish in the first place chub goes to feed the coastal shallows.


There is an axiom that calls the best hours for fishing morning and evening sunset, often crashing on the harsh reality of the August. Gradually, the water cools down enough and long nights leave their mark on a diet of fish. No doubt, at dawn and at sunset nibble activated, but a precise reference to this time, as it happens, for example, in June, no. When fishing the feeder in 80% of cases triggered a proverb «Large fish do not like to get up early». Early morning brings a certain amount uncertain bites, which subside as the sun rises above the horizon. It would seem, 9 am, biting ended. And at first, so it is — bite missing. However, for whatever reason, from 10-11 am confident start biting really big fish, which last up to 3-4 hours of the day. This is followed by a break to 7-8 pm, after which the newly renewed bite. For whatever reason it happens — hard to say, but the fact remains — the vast majority of bream caught in August day, fall between 10 and 15 hours a day in the heat.

Another rule is the steady night nibble. Typically, short June and July special night to night fishing results did not bring, and only in August, with a gradual increase in the length of the night and the cooling water, a steady biting big fish at night. Main number of bites to be usually up to 12 hours overnight, and then — from 2.30 till dawn. Night greedy bite, without trim shake, in most cases occurs samozasechka fish.


Since fishing takes place on a fairly strong current of the river, to the gear must meet certain requirements. Test rod for river fishing is selected based on the power flow — uncommon use «sticks» Class ekstrahevi to test up to 150 grams. However, for the vast majority of river conditions it is sufficient rod length of 3.6 meters and test up to 100-120 grams. Use of soft, parabolic rods does not make sense — strong current flex his power like «sticks» in an arc, why is deteriorating dramatically registration bites. It is for this reason that justified the use of the most rapid rods, «evil» system. They are less affected by the current and well-recorded fish bite.

An interesting point is the choice of the specific conditions kvivertipa fishing. Absolute bolshistvo sources advises to correlate test kvivertipa and weight used feeders. In practice, it occurs somewhat differently — Test vershinki selected exclusively from fishing conditions. If the flow does not bend «in a bagel» vershinku the dough in 1 ounce, but the depth, casting distance and other factors require the use of feeders, weighing 50-60 grams, there is no sense to use 2-2.5 untsovuyu vershinku corresponding trough. On the rod set is the same 1-untsovaya apex, and more! Application Plan «heavy feeder break vershinku» not true — vershinki break extremely careless fisherman — overlap, rings clogged grass or garbage.


It is used for river fishing reel, it should be sufficient to cope with the high-torque and landing of large fish. In practice, well-proven coil of 4000 with a ratio of not more than 5.2: 1. Such devices have enough speed and excellent traction vymatyvaniya — mechanism of the main pair of gears does not suffer from heavy feeders.


There are no clear guidelines for the choice of the feeder trough is difficult to give. Everyone chooses the one that is right for its environment. In my experience, accustomed plastic feeder with wings and a unique form of cargo. Such feeders perfectly keep the bottom and float fine, overcoming curb any height.


The most sensitive installation in feeder fishing are loop equipment. Each angler chooses the one that is right for him. For some, the best choice will Paternoster, other — inline. After trying all kinds of feeder erections eventually I settled on asymmetric loop. This snap totally exposed cresting, it has excellent sensitivity, and, unlike the paternoster shows bite toward the fisherman without moving feeder and nastorazhivaya fish.

The length of the leash is often a stumbling block for sufficiently weak cool. If you see the bite, but the fish hook in fails, it is recommended to increase the length of the leash. If, on the contrary, no bites, but the bait and then sucked a fish sits on the hook, the best solution is to reduce the length of the leash. In some circumstances, when capricious nibble makes sense to increase the length of the leash to 120-150 cm, sometimes only then begin confident bite. The minimum starting point for river leash — 60 cm. Leashes at length in most cases, it makes no sense to apply.

If, during the fishing now and then happen to the most powerful bite of big chub that end breakage of the hook, there is a sense among the leash assembly and insert a small segment of fidergama. This is a special gum, absorbing violent jerks big fish. Only with his help I was able to realize the bite when the fish just breaks the feeder from the rack. «Rob» likewise sufficiently large chubs weighing a kilogram or more. Without fidergama also like bite inevitably ended tattered leash.
River feeder fishing — very interesting, fascinating and exciting event. At no standing water, even when catching carp, you can not see the bites and feel the emotions that arise when playing large chub or ide. In August, when the fish begins to actively feed on, the chances of successful fishing has grown significantly.
