According to many anglers, alovivi not one ice season, the best places for catching roach are quite deep parts of reservoirs devoid of aquatic vegetation. The fishing itself is also very detailed and very reminiscent of Lesovoy with lots of bait. Even in shallow, overgrown waters, the angler tries to follow this tactic and looks for the fish “somewhere in between”.
Used to think so and I. However, last season has changed my ideas about catching roach on the head. The reason for that was one fishing trip that forced to approach it in a very unusual way. Fishing was a cane… in the midst of the Islands, growing right in the middle of the lake! That’s right — take screws and drill right into the reeds, lifting the ice along its remains mixed with the sludge. My disbelief was short-lived — only until the first bite. When did manage to pick up on the ice the first two hundred-gram roach, my joy knew no bounds! Since then, searching fish amid vegetation is no less than the traditional “wait and see” fishing at depths.
Why the rush and the reed? After all, richly overgrown waters, and you can also charge many other aquatic vegetation. There are several reasons. First of all, jungle island is a perfect shelter from predators. When among the bare bottom grows like a Bush, fish certainly will stay next to him. Secondly, in such thickets are almost always holding a variety of microorganisms that are the primary food fish in the winter. And thirdly, unlike other plants, which in winter time are quite actively decompose, releasing into the water any harmful substances, hollow stems of reeds and cane are a great conductor of oxygen in an underwater world. As a result, a favorable oxygen regime persists even in gluhozime, and prefers to stick with such places. Well, if there is a submerged river-bed of river or stream carrying fresh water — fish will stay almost always.
It should be remembered that the reeds and the reeds do not grow at depths greater than 2.5 m. taking into account the thickness of the ice under the feet of the angler in the best case scenario is 2-2,2 m depth, which imposes severe restrictions on movement and requires observance of silence. The slightest sound, fallen on ice screws or a hollow punch ladle — and the bites it is possible to forget at least half an hour. From the angler you want maximum accuracy and stealth while fishing.
Tactics of fishing, as a rule, the following. Angler obzvanivaet reed island on all sides, making 5-6 holes around the perimeter and a 3-4 in the reed. There is no “pumping”! Screws, carefully twisting around, leaving all the sludge in the hole. Since the previous action angler fairly made a noise, should be given 30-40 minutes for the fish to calm down. Then begin the harvest. With a slotted spoon in this situation do not use, limited to a small hole in the sludge, enough to skip jigs.
To “catch” all the fish from the hole should not be. After catching 2-3 fish should change the hole so the roaches calmed down. In this mode, the angler may move the entire day, oblasova “cool” holes.
Thickets of reeds and cane, in which fishing occurs, present the greatest challenge to used gear. The slightest slack during fishing — and the fish will wrap the line around a separate one of the stem. To fish this area should have a separate set of fishing rods equipped with some thicker fishing line: if a basic set of fishing rods equipped with line 0,08-0,09 mm, “reed” gear — 0,1-0,11 mm. it is useful to use a scaffold with fluorocarbon coating: they are practically invisible in water, making the bite become more confident. And jigs use the same “ant”, “ê”, “drop”, “uralka” and many other options are universal. Great only dimensions and weights: given the small depth of a fishery, the largest catch will have a compact and tiny jigs are made of lead — tungsten reserving for fishing in deep places!
Fishing among the reeds is almost always Packed. Bizmathica in such conditions, “shoots” are very rare. The thing is that the fish in most cases, prefer slowly lowered to the bottom of the bait, and bloodworms in this case attracts her. Whatever bezmetallny jig, without the game, it is unlikely to attract the attention of fish. To hook bloodworm on the hook one at a time, selecting the method of fixing depending on the situation: if the fish is active, the best way will be spitted over the head, leaving the tip free. If during the catch is a large number of empty bites, bloodworms should cling ring.
