The perch is a beautiful and strong fish our waters. There is probably not one person who saw him at least once, you will not be able to see the fish. Perch has a very characteristic appearance. The back is painted dark green, the sides cast a pale yellowish-green color, vertical stripes on the body (5 to 9 pieces) give it a distinctive and memorable look, the belly is a light shade with slight yellow.
Gray dorsal fin has a large spot on the back, the second fin is greenish-yellow; fins (pectoral) with a yellowish tint, and the rest of the fins are painted red. In the complex the whole “combat” coloring of the perch makes it very beautiful.
However, the environment in which he lives, leaves its mark on his appearance. For example, the perch that live in the peat ponds, have a dark color and the lateral stripes on the body they have is barely noticeable.
Perches according to their amount is divided into two kinds: first, small – weighing about 100-150 g. call travancor, and all the big perch (and they are weighing up to 2 kg and 50-60 cm long) – Gorbachev. This name is given due to the presence of the old perch Brokeback back.
Perch quite demanding to oxygen in water, so they prefer lakes and rivers with ample clean water. All season perch-Tavanic holds close to the shore, hiding in the vegetation. The humpback prefers deep waters, but in some periods actively visited shallow coastal waters. Large can be called a specimen weighing 350 grams or above. (2-2,5-pound giants are still a rarity). Not every fisherman has the good fortune to catch one of those bass-giant.
As soon as the water in the reservoir reaches 7-8 degrees, female bass begin to spawn (usually April in the southern regions, and may-early June in Northern regions). Perch for spawning, as a rule, goes in shallow water. Love meanders, bays with warm water and from vegetation. The caviar is placed thick strips with a length of about 1-1. 5 meters, in the cells where the eggs are inserted with a diameter of about 3 mm. Masonry attached to the driftwood, trunks of reeds and other aquatic plants.
Sexual maturity of females perch travarica occurs in the fourth year. Females perch-Humpbacks are ready to spawning for the fifth year. Perch spawn at depths from half a meter to 4 meters. To do this, they flock together. Characteristic is the fact that the larger the bass, the deeper it goes to spawn. Perch are very careful and sensitive fish. Any attempt to approach him, he immediately goes in depth.
Perch. Where to catch.
Immediately after spawning, the perch bite is weak. Reflex save offspring, apparently, overcomes the feeling of hunger. But gradually it gathers in flocks and begins to feed. During this period, the perch goes on the larvae of bark beetle, maggot, various worms, bloodworms, larva burdock moth, etc., In that a feeding of the places you plan to catch perch. He takes so well to the beginning of June. Then the pack start to drop in the deeper locations and large perch successfully can only be fished from a boat. Perch-trajanic still holds to the shore, dams, sluices, dams and bridge piers, where much is all fish stuff.
Feed actively all of the first half of June (in the Northern waters until the end of the month). Then, when the day becomes hot, and the water quickly warms up, swarms of perch go into deep space and only feed in the morning and evening dawn when it’s still relatively cool.
Perch. How to catch. What to catch.
To catch bass a variety of ways. It and the plummet of the usual side rods of the boat, at depths up to 4 meters. During Zhora well established large, heavy spoons and jigs. They need to have an extensive set. The jig must be chosen according to the color depth of the water is significantly improves the bite. From the shore you can throw bottom fishing rods (if you firmly believe that you have found a hole or ditch, which is home to schools of snappers).
Nozzle choose from a vast range of fry: plotnicki, gudgeon, bleak, etc. during casting of bait fish flew off the hooks, it is necessary after the nozzle of the bait put on the hook a small piece of rubber (preferably flat).
To avoid sudden jerks when throwing a sinker on the end of the donkey is tied is not hard, and using a strong rubber band. The last time was spinning on different twisters. This especially helps when the bottom garagiste and has a complex stone relief. Unlike ordinary spinners, Twister is much less exposed zatsepu. At depths of 4-5 meters is justified and productive to catch perch using snastochki different designs. By the fall perch gathers in large flocks and begin to feed. This is the most fertile time of catching big perch.
