Onboard fishing rods are usually fishing poles of small length, which are used for fishing from a boat in a plumb or almost plumb. The material from which they are made does not matter much, as the fisherman does not participate in the casting, and often enough, the diving is done simply for the fishing line, as in winter fishing.
Catching bream from a boat is much more convenient than from the shore. Quite often it uses side fishing rods that allow you to catch both in the current and in standing water. Catching them allows you to realize all the advantages of a boat for an angler, as well as use an inexpensive winter echo sounder.
One of the main advantages is that it is very inexpensive and can be made independently. This is usually what most anglers do. Onboard fishing rods are made of top whips for float fishing rods, from old spinning rods, including broken ones, from feeder rods. Fishing stores also have something to offer: there are a variety of inexpensive fishing tips that can be used as on-board. Yes, and winter fishing rods can often be used in this capacity with some restrictions .
The second advantage is the ability to use a large number of them, which usually increases the chances of a bite. From each side of the boat the angler can install three or four udilnik depending on the size of the boat If you stand on the baited place, it absolutely does not let you get bored, and the angler will only be engaged in the fact that the bream out of the water one by one.
Due to the large number and their small size, it is possible to catch them from the boat together. One puts a few fishing rods from his side, the second – from his. And the two anglers will not interfere with each other in any way, what would have happened when fishing with long rods, which sometimes have to produce wide swings when casting and coordinate them with a partner. This is a great opportunity to fish with a friend, join a son to fishing, or even a wife.
And this is really possible, because fishing for such gear does not require special skills, qualifications angler. There are no complicated coils, there is no need to perform a high-quality and accurate casting. Tackle, although it may get confused, but it happens quite rarely. And if it gets confused, there is always an opportunity to get a new one, and put it in a backpack. After all, the cost of fishing poles is small, the size too, and this allows you to carry with them a large number of them.
Disadvantages of side fishing rods
Despite the advantages, such fishing rods when catching bream can have disadvantages. The very first drawback – you can only catch from a boat. Of course, this method can be used when fishing from wharves, embankments, barges. But at the same time, the angler will be very tightly tied to a specific fishing spot, where there may be no fish. And with the usual methods of fishing from the shore of choice more.
The second drawback is that fishing is carried out at a sufficiently large depth. At depths of less than one and a half to two meters, the bream under the boat, as a rule, will not stand – it is frightened by its shadow and the noise that the fisher is always making. In some reservoirs, for example, in small rivers, there will be not so many places, where more than two meters of depth. Yes, and bream often go to feed on the shallows, ignoring the deep areas.
The third drawback – the difficulty in catching on the wave. The boat in this case will swing, even on a weak wave. In this case, it is quite difficult to track the bite because it is difficult to ensure the constant tension of the fishing line from the alarm device to the hook. This disadvantage is partially compensated by the use of special constructions and a bite warning device.
Rod, produced by some companies and allows you to catch the feeder in the winter. Due to the rather long tip and soft build, it allows you to compensate well for the oscillations of the boat on a wave without a load of a sinker. This fishing rod can be simply bought in the store and immediately used as an onboard one. It is not necessary to catch with the trough, but you need to put a heavy load on it so that it does not come off when the boat oscillates from the bottom.
Using an inline snap-in with a very long chuck or a paternoster with a very long, about half a meter long, loop for a feeder load allows you to catch a mini-feeder on a larger wave than with the usual fixed attachment of the load to the fishing line.
Onboard fishing pole with Shcherbakov’s nod
This system of nods was described by the Shcherbakov brothers in a video about winter fishing. The author of the article caught on such a nod and with a side fishing rod, while he showed himself perfectly. A nod of this type makes it easy to rebuild the bait for any barge, but for fishing it must have a significantly longer working part – at least half a meter. On the wave, such a nod makes rhythmic vibrations and compensates for the line tension.
Pokivka can be seen as a failure in the rhythmic vibrations of the nod, including the rise, which is very important when catching bream – it almost always takes to the rise. You can use a rather weak bludgeon when fishing, comparable to the flooded fishing rod, and catch cautious bream. The nod is extremely sensitive and shows the most subtle touch to the bait, it can also be used for catching small fish. A nod in the store is not for sale and will have to make it yourself.
Broken-tip fishing pole
The construction of the fishing rod of the Alexey Statsenko system was described in detail on the video channel Salapin.ru. Its design is a side fishing rod, in which the tip, which plays the role of a nod, has a length of about 30-40 cm and is connected to the main part with a flexible spring. In this case, the nod compensates for the oscillations of the boat on the wave, making rhythmic movements. Poklevka can be seen on the rise, and on potik.
The original mount with magnets, which is very convenient. The fishing rod is made according to the filly system of a sufficiently large size, which gives many advantages and can be made by the angler independently.
Fishing rod with a sliding float
Such a fishing rod perfectly compensates for the oscillations of the boat, even on a strong wave. The indicator here is a sliding float, which is located on the surface of the water. The section of the line from the rod to it usually just sags, and with wave heights even up to 50 cm you can safely catch. A sliding float for such a fishing rod is usually taken long enough so that it can be seen among the waves – its antenna is up to half a meter long.
At the same time, it can both hold the nozzle in a suspended state, as in normal fishing with a float, and serve as a signaling device for bottom tackle with a sliding weights, still lying on the bottom. It can also be used when catching bream on a mormyshka, which can be given oscillations independent of the waves, or by allowing it to sway freely on the waves.
So you can catch other types of fish, using both winter fells and balance weights. The disadvantage of this fishing rod is that it is inconvenient to put the fish out because the float often does not have time to roll down the fishing line and the rods are stuck in the tulip, because of which you have to pull the tackle by the fishing line.
Side nod with bell
A simple and effective poklyovki signaling device that can be made from a fairly rigid side nod, securing the bells on it near the base. A nod will make rhythmic vibrations on the wave, and the bells will not ring, as everything will happen smoothly, without jerks.
When poklevke usually occurs a sharper movement, which immediately will cause a jingle. The disadvantage of this fishing rod is that the bell is usually firmly fixed to the nod so that its weight does not affect its operation. Therefore, pulling out with a rod and a reel will be accompanied by a terrible ringing, and it is better to drag along the line.
Winter fishing rods that can be used as airborne
Immediately it is worth discarding short fishing rods for fishing on the boat. They are not very convenient as a board, do not allow to damp oscillations due to the flexibility of the rod blank. Their length often leads to the fact that the fishing line will cling to the side of the boat, and the bite will not be seen very well.
More suitable rods with coil, used when fishing with trolling and balance weights. Usually they are of sufficient length, and catching with them is much more comfortable. In addition, a tulip is placed on them at a distance from the tip, which makes it possible to fasten a nod, take it off and adjust it, and often there is an additional reel, which is used when moving, simply by winding the line on it, and not on the reel.
An interesting design of the bottom fishing rod for catching bream, where the vibrations of the boat on the wave are compensated by the body of the fishing pole, which is made of a simple piece of wire. From a wire bend a fishing-rod with a motovilts for a scaffold.
The stiffness of the rod should be small, so that the wire is bent on the wave and there is no separation of the load. As a signaling device poklyovki use bells or a bell attached to the wire, and the wire itself must be firmly fixed on board the boat and stand upright. Fishing rod is very simple and can be made by hand.
Fishing rods in the boat
One of the methods has already been described – fastening fishing rods with magnets. The method, although it seems unreliable, is perfect for fishing. A pair of magnets is used, and in order to tear them off, an effort of at least three kilograms will be required. A fish often cannot even develop such a thing, even a large one. In addition, the rod described by Alexey Statsenko has a floating structure, and even with an accidental loss, it can then be caught and pulled back into the boat. One magnet is on the fishing rod, the second is glued to the boat.
The second way is to use a paddle, a hook or a stick. Fishing rods while standing in the boat almost vertically along the side, and in the butt they are pressed by the oar laid along the side of the banks. The mount is simple and does not require any additional devices, but it works better on a wooden boat. In addition, it is necessary to carefully remove the bait when biting, so that others do not fall into the water.
The third way is to use special mounts. They can be purchased or self-made, have a different design (you can’t list them all!). The disadvantage of such anchorage is that it is usually quite large; it takes up space in the boat. Nevertheless, this is the most reliable way to secure the side fishing rod, and if it is heavy and can drown – the most acceptable for the angler.
Ways to catch
There are several ways to catch on-board fishing poles:
- Bottom fishing (including feeder fishing). A load is used that lies motionless at the bottom and holds the tooling. It is used most often when catching bream. May use a feeder associated with the rod, but more often the feed is simply thrown down by the arms. is a type of onboard bottom fishing.
- Fishing with a suspended sinker. It resembles float fishing, but when side fishing for bream, the distance from the main sinker to the subpacking and the hook should be greater than when fishing with a float. This is done so that when the oscillation on the wave continues to lie the hook at the bottom, not looking up and not scaring the fish.
- Fishing on mormyshku. The angler in the boat is less able to give the mormysk vibrations than the angler on the ice because of the excitement of the boat. Therefore, they use fairly simple jigs and a fairly simple wide game, expressed in the periodic pulling up the jigs up and free fall. Such fishing is usually practiced in late autumn and allows you to attract bream when bait is not as effective.
- Fishing on the ring . The way of catching is well suited for catching bream in the current. Use the feeder, which is lowered into the water on a separate cord and the load, freely walking on this cord. The load can be attached to the fishing line or also walk freely on it. At the end of the fishing line there is one or more leads with hooks pulled by the current.
