Parvoleta the hunt for bass, in General, have ended for the reason that small perch anglers are no longer interested. If a couple of weeks ago, many were happy any bites, now “set on edge” shot down and want something more worthy.
Most switched to roach and white bream, but the adherents of the perch are and will be. Attracts large bass, not just the difficulty of finding and catching, but decent resistance on thin gear and to be honest, excellent gastronomic quality. For example, I caught winter fish prefer to cook bass.
Bass remains almost the only winter extraction fans trolling, and the most that neither is a “sport” fish. Walleye, and even more pike caught trolling unit the most focused anglers rest to pursue the case makes sense only under the guidance of more experienced colleagues and on the reservoir where walleye are sufficient. However, there are interesting exceptions. I remember not very long case, which occurred on the Volga river near the town of Yuryevets. Two anglers from Nizhny Novgorod heard that this is trolling walleye, and decided to go.
They showed an approximate fishing area where anglers and headed (12 km). By late evening they returned, barely dragged on improvised sledges catch and belongings. The catch was (according to different witnesses) of seventy or eighty perch. Since that area is commercial fishing, it is urgent to have tested, but not from networking or fish. Everything was fair. Well, these two guys did the first time caught trolling and almost the second time was fishing. Greed is an insidious thing. Then the fishermen went to their place three times a month, but haven’t seen a bite.
Fishing for pike and Zander requires not only excellent knowledge of the reservoir, but also how to move fish, schedule and the ability to catch almost every day.
With bass easier and harder. Easier, because a decent size of fish in General is much more than pikes, and with enough perseverance you can catch at least a couple of instances. Complicated by the fact that large bass are highly mobile and choosy, and that is very easy to “sink” to catch the little things, if the result is not achieved as fast as the angler would like.
Large or at least much larger compared to the other perch quite often catches while fishing trivia on the jig. If this happens, it is very likely that the fish is nearby and should go look for her. How many times was that out of several dozen wells, located nearby, is allocated only one where the fish are biting is clearly larger. In my own experience I know that such holes makes sense to mark, because at the bottom there’s something that attracts fish. Here, large perch can be, and more likely to visit this spot throughout the winter. It is important to note, what time begins and ends with biting. Very often the bass is not in the specific point, and for a specific area, the strip edge, a specific slide with an underwater “hump”, a specific side of the Bay. If biting is not present, then the cause may not be seen exactly the place and the weather changes, and the change in water level.
If the exit was near the shore or in the shallows, it is almost certain nice points located somewhere at depth. Usually in the morning for large perch out in places convenient to hunt for fry, and then descends to a depth where it may refuse additional food.
Broke on the very real possibility of catching big perch there or very early in the morning or at the sunset. Known cases when perch started very actively to take on the rocks already after sunset, and the bite continued until dark. Were eating fish only on the volume of the bait, the lures and large jig with a bunch of bloodworms or worm, and is better with Malcolm. But back to the morning fishing.
What better fish on the rocks in the morning, is difficult to answer. One of my friends enjoys fine baitless jigs is the type of the Ural with beads, the other does not recognize anything except a small spinner, and I often managed to seduce the fish very fine with a baitless jig. Here it is necessary to point out that I, unlike familiar other gear caught on the rocks, that is, when the thickness of the water layer under the ice near the shore does not exceed 20 cm were Managed with holes to catch two or three fish before sunrise.
Then, place the bites on the depth of one meter, but on a spinner or balancer. Among the day’s big bass periodically goes to areas with a depth meter, but these remedies are difficult to predict. If a place is known, and this can be the top of the coastal edge, and better finish underwater spit, then please feed a few holes and wait patiently for a possible exit. This does not mean that you need to constantly sit in the holes. They should periodically come back, but look for fish to continue.
It is very likely to find fish on a depth of about five meters. Why this depth has been discussed more than once. When fishing with a jig hole will have to lure a small number of small moth with a small trough. The bait is best to put on the bottom a small spot. This feeder is lowered to the bottom, then slowly raise to a height of two feet or meter, depending on the steepness of the slope of the bottom, and open it. If the big perch in this area has, at least in one of the five or seven holes it will manifest.
The bite may begin immediately or after a few hours, which is unpredictable. As a tackle I use in such cases is very small jig with a planting of several larvae of large bloodworms, because the bass in this case takes the bait, not a jig. If the fish is, then it pecks almost on the first very slow transaction.
On coastal passages from great depths on the shoal of big perch the evening also responds to the bait. In this case, the hole is prepared early in the morning, feed them and go look for fish, and in the evening going back and checking the presence of a large perch. Such tactics are quite effective on the first ice. You are in the process of catching examine in detail the topography of the coastal zone that can be invaluable when drilling thick ice is hard, and laziness.
Fishing with a jig that is a large perch have not received wide acceptance, because it is very thin, neat, and requires continuous visits are not one and the same body of water, but also of a specific area or two. With sufficient knowledge and training places actually fishing ends very quickly. That is, catch in a certain place, at a certain time several large perch, even if it is very large, by local standards, that’s all. You can go to other fish or to go home. With me this happened in the course of two seasons, when I occasionally hunted for bass on the Khimki reservoir. Caught when anglers are still going on the ice a few perch at 500-700 g and think, or to look for roach or perch, or to go home.
Much more interesting with the spoon. During this period to find an active big perch often fails at depth or over depth. Now, after entering the Bank, he occupies the horizons above a depth of 4-6 feet, but can stand on two-three meters beneath the ice. In deep pits a very high probability that the fish is deeper.
So, a week ago, very active perch bite at one of the quarries for a Month from a depth of 9-10 m and a meter above the bottom. Below took perch medium and small size, but two feet higher and larger. When searching with a lure, in my opinion, the most important to know where the horizon today is the big perch. Therefore, if you or someone in the pond are caught, you need to go exactly on the horizon catching. It is even more important than lure selection. As practice shows, will catch those who make good use a vertical jig, and those who have mastered the balancer. The difference in catches is not influenced by the bait, and the skill of the angler.
