Even when cold, which is not uncommon in the spring, stocks of accumulated melt water will be enough to sustain the General trend of recovery among the underwater creatures.
Now comes the gracious spring ice fishing when the waters gets cold and most oxygen-rich “snow” water, which also no the many harmful contaminants coming from the soil in the late spring and floods, and for some time, depressing the activity of the fish.
Big fish, which in winter is almost not moved, and therefore accumulated on your body a lot of pests, willing to be in this kind of oxygen “cocktails”, “to wash”, to take a breath and give the body a biological impetus to prepare for spawning.
Predatory fish at the beginning of March became more pronounced to show a tendency to actively bite, as they are at this time making significant migration from the wintering grounds, it takes a lot of energy out in the rivers even in strong current, while in a particularly attractive and all places, from one hole to pull out a spoon and perch, and pike perch, and pike, which is not uncommon, for example, when spring fishing on the Oka, or Shosha.
Like on the first ice, now the most interesting hunt on a perch, forming large clusters, because the search almost single perch and pike – a very time-consuming task because of the thick and viscous spring ice. Of course, it is easier to produce on the imitation fish, working over a large area. The behavior of “striped” in contrast, is well predictable and the Parking lot is fairly easy to calculate two or three trial holes.
As a rule, with the beginning of intensive thawing of snow pack solid perch are back from wintering holes and channel ditches for the underground tuber, where a layer of melt water quickly reaches the bottom and where in abundance besides going to a different fry, or come to the high banks, abruptly disappearing under the water – then just before the flow starts under the ice of fresh water.
But do not think that the spring jigging for perch even at the famous sites, be sure to give a good result, as often happens at the beginning of freeze-up. Now “stripes” are very sensitive and light, and the size, quality and color of the lure and the technique of trolling. The reasons are simple: spring is too high illumination, therefore, large groupers better to hunt either in the early morning or late afternoon, especially on Sunny days, or do the holes on the shady side of the hill or shore; in addition, one should note that the belly of the bass to the refusal filled with ripe eggs and they cannot eat big food, so the spinner should correspond to the “queries” of a predator.
And yet, the spring perches are inactive and do not react much on the prowl, active spinners, playing with the big amplitude and frequency. The predator is also quite long “adjusted” to the bite, so you need a certain shutter speed. So a successful hunt for the “striped” is possible, if not to lose precious time of dawn on complementary feeding “lescovich” holes; if you do not catch in the ground, covered with holes, i.e. “lit”; if you use a spinner-type “carnation” or small balancer and play them with minimum amplitude, maintaining between strokes significant pause; if we remember that in the spring bass are often raised in the middle layers of water and that it migrates along with other fish, and where yesterday was a good bite today it may not be at all.
As for the quality gear, in this situation it is necessary to strictly observe the principle: the smaller the spoon, the thinner the fishing line.
Only then bait will consistently play. So experienced anglers always have a few equipped with fishing rods for blesneniya, and use them depending on conditions of catching, by the way, paying great attention to the presence of a gatehouse on the spinning, allowing you to discern neat “butting” of the spring perch.
