Spring shallow water

In the spring due to snow melt and precipitation under the ice cover receives a lot of fresh water, which, incidentally, is not only very much saturated with oxygen, but also has a lower temperature than the “old” water in the reservoir. Perhaps only in the shallow waters under the ice, the water column cools to the same condition, so at the close of winter here the fish is more adapted to cold water and a better bite.

However, fish and various small animals, not to get a thermal shock due to temperature differences, a lot of “new” water the first time, not come and occupy some of the narrow border zone, where the mixing of water layers with different properties. In this situation there are two variants of behaviour of the different fish it over deep occupies a certain horizon, that is, rises in polody or massively goes to certain places in the vast shallow waters.

This is due to the fact that water in reservoirs with low flow in winter has a temperature of about plus four degrees that is the temperature water becomes most dense and heavy. So a lighter melt water well and evenly mixed with the water column at small depths, where the water is almost the same with her settings. However, getting through cracks and holes in the deep areas, it spreads out over the “old” water column, almost with it not mixing or forming only a narrow mixing zone that the fish are not always willing to attend.

On the same shallow water environment in the spring rather quickly acquires the same everywhere and are quite comfortable properties — both for live food, and fish, which here, in confined spaces, and feed much easier. So in the spring, fishing in shallow waters may well expect a significant catch. But here will have to work hard, looking for a Parking fish, and that is not easy, given the almost everywhere of the same depth and bottom topography.

However, successful fishing is facilitated by the fact that shallow watering fish often gets dense “spots”. But if the majority of the plots have not, then this further suggests that somewhere the fish will be very much. We need only remember that, looking for a Parking fish, and then “rasborinae” place of fishing, the angler must behave very quietly: the holes do not close to each other, do not “pump” them by screws, not cleaned completely from ice chips, to try to fish away from the noisy companies. When looking for fishing spots on sites with no perceptible current, we must remember that good conditions for fishing in the shallows will be not everywhere, but only where at the bottom of last year’s little decaying vegetation or deposits of organic matter, able to poison the water. In addition, in silty sediments and in the vegetation usually hides a lot of active fish in the spring of parasites, contact with which the fish is trying to avoid.

So any places with shallow depth are suitable in the spring for successful fishing — the better to give preference to shallow watering with a hard bottom away from the shores, which usually does not happen as much “grass” as in the coastal zone, and where muddy sediments accumulate. In this sense, a good bite will certainly appreciate the site, the former summer places of mass bathing — here the bottom is usually sand, clay or gravel, also is any soft deposits rise in the water column of numerous vacationers and carried by waves and by wind moving water.

What to fish in the shallows? In many places, the choice is usually limited to the usual roach, perch, a bristle brush, but with a certain confluence of seasonal conditions there is sometimes possible to catch the purposefully bleak, Rudd, gudgeon, carp and even an adherent deep bream. Of course, not to mention specific spring fishing for pike on the imitation fish, when the depth under the hole does not exceed three dozen centimeters, but that is a separate and a rather broad topic, requiring special consideration. However, it is clear that a large predator appears randomly where it is not in the abundance of live food.

Than to catch? In shallow water at high-speed inspection of large areas of the reservoir in search of clusters the most active fish will be operational tackle jig or bait, baitless in either version. And then if you choose an effective bait should consider much more factors than when fishing at great depth, in large part, is determined by the increased light in the spring, even under a thick ice when ice is not snow.

For this reason, in the shallow waters in any weather roach prefers jigs matte black, ruff better bite on the bait of tarnished lead, but bass jigs are irresistible body by spraying a copper-plated. However, this is only most often the result of giving options, while in some other cases it can be Vice versa. Therefore, the angler is not necessary to puzzle over the solution of the peculiarities of fish behavior, it is better to prepare in advance the optimal set of fishing rods with lures that differ in form and color, but the weight and size they should be about close. The latter is defined as a shallow depth of fishing, and by the fact that the spring ROE fish baits are more interested in the minimum size, which, incidentally, are technically easier to perform smooth measured movement, enticing fish with low mobility.

In shallow water a very important role for the design of the spinning — in it must be established “security system” that protects a thin line from the break when a big fish bites if too sharp or cutting. The fact that even high-quality fishing line, but short, does not possess sufficient elastic tension to fend off the instant overload. Therefore, you need a spinning reel, which locks the screw, simultaneously performing the role of a friction brake. It is by adjusting the tightening force of the screw, the turning of the set coil and the reset line when critical loads in the tackle. Reliable this system works when the spinning reel is equipped with a large diameter, and the fishing line on the spool is wound under the bumpers.

Also the choice of fishing line should be treated responsibly — from the variety of products offered attention should be given to only a scaffold, the diameter of which is calibrated to thousandths of a millimeter, which is displayed on the packaging (for example, 0,112). This scaffold is usually considerably more expensive than mass-produced products of unknown origin, but it long is almost without loss of quality.

Technique and tactics of fishing in shallow water not that difficult, if the tackle is well-regulated, and Parking fish found. However, there will always be nuances in catching different fish. For example, roaches and in these circumstances can be quite successful catching stationary and on a fixed gear, gradually increasing the amount of fish under the holes using feeding, because of the smallness of the depth of the feeding the bait straight from the top, without the use of feeders. It is even better if the hole periodically to RUB dry bait mix or semolina particle bait, gradually becoming wet, will always fall to the bottom, and movement, and smell significantly adds to the roach.
