The most favorable for fishing are considered, in small narrow rivers, the areas where it expands, in wide places of narrowing. In deep reservoirs, shallows, in shallow pits. In standing ponds and canal lakes, in fast bays and backwaters. In muddy water, nibble is worse than in clear water..
Place and time of fishing while surviving in an extreme situation, catchy places, ways to improve fish bite.
The most catchy places with transparent water, slightly clouded with organic impurities, and places where mosquitoes, midges, larvae and other insects accumulate in a small space. In summer, more fish off the coast, overgrown with reeds, reeds, as there is more food. When the water blooms, it is better to look for fish in the old channels, in the deep places of bays and old ladies, in places where rivers, streams flow in, that is, where the water is more saturated with oxygen. After rains, fish accumulate in estuaries and streams that flow into the reservoir and carry fresh food washed away from the ground..
In lakes, it is best to fish in the windows of clean water among aquatic vegetation and on the outskirts of thickets, at a depth of 2-3 meters. The largest fish is usually kept in deep holes. In rivers, fish is more often found in places of turns and roundings, where the current washes pits, pools, bays. In cold spring water, fish often accumulate in shallow water off the coast, where the water is warmed up enough by the sun, near last year’s aquatic vegetation, close to the surface. The accumulation of fish can be determined by the characteristic bursts on the surface of the water, by the jumps of playing fish, by the gathering on the surface of the water and often diving waterfowl. In strong winds, fish look for quieter, sheltered from the wind in water bodies.
The best time for fishing.
The best time for fishing is early morning or evening. On cloudy days you can catch all day. The fish pecks especially actively on a clear, quiet morning, before sunrise, when fog spreads over the water. Or after a rainfall, when rain washes off additional food from the shore. The fish pecks well: in the spring in clear weather with light winds or during calm. In summer, in warm, but not hot, steady weather with a slight breeze or in a cloudy, quiet, sometimes with a small rain, and also before a thunderstorm. Autumn in calm cloudy weather without precipitation, with a light misty haze. At all times of the year immediately before the full moon and immediately after it.
The nibble before weather changes is somewhat weakened. This rule applies equally to all seasons. In spring, weakening of biting is associated with the arrival and turbidity of water. In summer, with the onset of blooming water and a period of turbidity, as well as with increased heat or the onset of bad weather. In autumn, with increased wind and inclement weather. Poor fish bite with a sharp change (increase or decrease) in atmospheric pressure.
In spring, when the wind changes its direction and intensifies, with a cold snap and the beginning of a prolonged bad weather. In summer, in very hot and dry or in unstable weather, with often changing winds and drizzle. In the fall during a prolonged storm. And, finally, it does not bite at all when the weather deteriorates sharply, during stormy, gusty winds, accompanied by heavy rains and snowfalls, during a thunderstorm.
Ways to improve the bite while fishing.
Nibble can improve if you carefully raise a fountain of turbidity from the bottom carefully, without any noise, which will attract the attention of the fish. Even better, to have a guaranteed catch, feed the fish in any one place. As fishermen usually do, scattering bread, cereals, etc. lure in the area of the alleged catch. True, when surviving in emergency conditions, it is unlikely that anyone will sacrifice bread and cereals for feeding fish. But you can sacrifice spoiled meat, fish or tripe.
To do this, you need to hang them on a tree branch hanging over the water or on a special crane, taken away from the coast. After some time, the meat flies will lay testicles on the meat, larvae will emerge from them, which will fall into the water and attract fish to themselves. Fishing in this place is best done on the same larvae. There is another way of economical bait, when coils of bread, cereals, etc., are pressed into a ball molded from clay. Several clay feeders sink to the bottom of the river at the fishing spot and attract fish’s attention..
