A rich catch is not an easy task , especially if it is an unfamiliar body of water or is being visited for the first time. You need to know what kind of fish in this reservoir is the most hungry, where it lives, what kind of bait is being conducted and much more to enjoy fishing and be with a big catch. Different gear and accessories exist for this “intelligence”.
One of them is a boat for the delivery of bait. Boats for fishing are different in structure. The first were primitive, because they were invented and made by the most fishermen from improvised means. Then there were nimble dealers who put the production of ships on an industrial conveyor and make good money on it.
The task of the ship is quite simple – to deliver the food in the right place, pour it there and sail back. You can deliver the lure and on your boat, but the shadow of it and bursts of oars for a long time will disperse the fish from their homes. Whether the matter is a small boat without noise delivers lure. Developments have advanced further and manufactured radio-controlled ships. The price of such gear “bites”, but you can make a boat at home, spending only on nails and fishing line. But you can make a ship out of available tools, but equip it with technologies, spare parts of which can be purchased in the store.
Bait ship should be managed to bring the lure to the right place and go back. Also, the boat should pour out the lure to roll over and back to stand on its feet to sail back. The ship has to do another job, get a line with a hook in this place and get rid of it.
The first ships were made of a piece of plank, to which the fishing line was baited and crocheted. The current carried such a structure to the water surface, its simplicity and noiselessness attracted fish. Then the fishing line with the fish stretched towards the shore, and the whole process began again. But not always the fish was in places with the flow, and even such ships brought a lot of inconvenience. On reservoirs where there is no current, the task was generally impossible. Also, vegetation off the coast was causing a lot of trouble. Lure on the fishing rod could be eaten by fish, and the fishing rod tangled in the grass and break off. From the shore, where the branches of the tree hang, it is impossible even to throw a bait on the water with a fishing rod.
Initially, the ships were tied to the cord and after being delivered to the place, they were returned via the cord. Such reversible ships were made by hand. But with vegetation near the shore, this process became more complicated. Was designed reversive boat for the importation of bait. This boat took the lure back to the place and got rid of it, came back. These boats are radio-controlled and costly for money.
You can buy a boat in Ukraine in a specialized shop for selling fishing gear. You can order from familiar fishermen used bait boat. You can also purchase by ordering online at OLX, or Aliekspres from abroad. This company sells products made in Korea.
How to make a boat with your own hands
Do it yourself with some skills. They are built from different materials, but it is best to make them from wood or foam. You also need to make a device for the delivery of bait and unloading it. What devices are needed: plank or foam plastic, lintel for primer and paint dim colors, plate, which will be installed bait, nails, bolts and nuts for fastening and assembly. Do not paint in blue or blue, then on the water it will be invisible to you.
There is a homemade boat for fishing – sleigh. The body consists of two identical plates, with rounded bottom edges. The thickness of the plank is not more than 10mm width 10cm. To keep the planks afloat correctly, they are fastened in parallel with two small bars. On one side of the boards we make hooks for attaching the main fishing line to hold the sleds and fishing line, on which hooks and flies will be attached. Sizes will depend on the intended fishing. Drawings of boats of different structure can be found on the sites of fishermen.
The next step will be the manufacture of a rogatulina, on which hooks and flies will be held. It is made from a bar with a length of 7-10 cm with grooves at the ends to keep the coiled fishing line. The length of the fishing line can be up to 100 meters. On one side of the bar there is a strip of felt, on which flies will be hooked. For the main line also need a carbine. We tie the main fishing line to the sleds on one fastener, depending on the direction from which fishing will be conducted. On the main line we fix carabiners at equal distance from each other of approximately 2 m each, which will hold the undersleeper with baits and hooks. In detail about this design will tell the videos. Sleigh fishing is very popular and does not cause any inconvenience with proper use.
Accessories for the ship
When building a boat, consider:
- must be one of the boards leading, with which it will be possible to manage, regardless of the flow;
- heavy material (lead) float for high flow stability;
- switch (reverse), for release from bait and return back
- sturdy fishing line on which it is held and sent to the place for dumping the bait;
- bait (fly), to attract fish.
Keep in mind that the switch should be above the water at the same level as the fishing line, so as not to interfere with the movement of the boat. The design must be assembled very carefully, with distortions or improper assembly, it does not perform its task. Tackles also require special attention. Choose a solid woven line, the work of the boat and its return depend on it. Choose materials and devices taking into account the place where fishing will take place – in a quiet pond or with current and gusts of wind. In order to reach fish caught and pull out – spinning will be needed, equipped with strong fishing line and reliable hooks.
An important role is played by bait and bait. You need to take into account the fact that fish loves organic bait from natural products. Self-made lure and seasoned with natural flavors that fish prefers will provide an opportunity to return from fishing with a rich catch. Flies need to be tied to the boat for bait fish, and the food with the smell will do its job. If desired, the ship can be equipped with an echo sounder and gps navigator, as well as a digital control system.
But the easiest way is to fish with simple gadgets. If the river is not wide, a cargo is transferred with a fishing rod to secure it to the other side. A boat with bait is attached to the line and displayed on the water, having attached the hook fishing line to the line in advance. Under the influence of the flow of the river, even the slowest ship, attached to the tension line between the banks, will float to the middle of the river, leading the spinning line behind. The fisherman must be at some distance from the place upstream. Flies on a boat attract fish, bait with a smell stimulates the appetite and you can start fishing. When the water is flowing, the bait does not need to be poured into the water, the water will carry it away along the river, and the fish will leave behind it.
In a pond without a current on the lake or a reservoir, a ship from the coast will be taken away by the water itself, so-called lifting force always goes from the coast. The boat is attached to the spinning and displayed on the water. On it are fixed, attracting the attention of fish flies and bait. The fishing line is unrolled to a certain length, where the fish should live. You can walk along the shore in one and the other direction to determine the place of fishing. On the spinning reel we twist the line, and return the boat a little back, then slowly let go in the opposite direction. So the ship looking for a suitable place where the fish will bite.
It is more difficult to hold the ship on the river with the passage, the water takes it away, this puts additional strain on the hands and affects the strength of the fishing line. Fishing is necessary, moving slowly with stops, upstream of the river. With such fishing, you need to consider the strength of the fishing line and choose a braided strong fishing line.
Bait for fishing
For fishing on the boat need a bait. Bait can be done by yourself, using the bulk, which consists of boiled grains, odor enhancers from certain products or purchased. The composition of prikormki includes porridge from millet, barley, oatmeal and other cereals. You can use boiled peas, pickled corn, as well as sunflower seeds and cake from it. Fried bread crumbs and bran are introduced into the mixture for density. From animal elements used maggots, manure worms, earthworms, bloodworms. For the smell add sunflower, anise garlic oil, as well as ground cinnamon and vanilla. For sale in the store activator biting Mega mix, which with great success is used by fishermen to cook their own bait. It is liquid in consistency, which allows it to be added to boiled groups.
