On the eve of winter fishing are all more labor, but in this lies their charm. In addition, in any time of the year I will not have such a unique opportunity to be on the shore alone. This is an excellent opportunity to test their theoretical developments, and the technique of possession tackle.
The colder and clearer the water is, the more careful and choosy the fish becomes, and the more important to fishing success acquire those things that a week or two ago and attention is not paid. Take, for example, the snap-in. Actually, not all of it, but only on the leash. While water temperature has not dropped below 10, I successfully used a short 15-centimeter leash connected from the scaffold cross-section of 0.1 mm. Fish, mainly roach, were eating as confident with the long leash I was late with the cutting. So much so that the hook sometimes had to tear out the fish from his throat.
But last week, the water temperature dropped to + 7, and on the next fishing I could not adapt to a regular “sit-UPS” of the float, after which the bait on the hook was slightly bent and was no longer perceived by the fish. I changed the length of the leash, increasing it by almost half, and reduced the diameter of the line, bringing it up to 0.08 mm, however, the problem remained unsolved. The only roach that I could detect, was caught by the eye. It was obvious the fish are overly cautious. It takes the bait, but the bait on the hook it seems suspicious.
To fix the situation was after instead of the regular line, I decided to put fluorocarbons. Of course, compared to the usual, these fishing lines lose much in strength, however, and the roach is not the fish for playing which need to use super-tough line. And hard if that is available. Trying to fish with a new fishing line, to his delight, found that in addition to increasing the number of successful bites are pleasantly increased and the size of the pecking fish. Annoy earlier a trifle disappeared altogether, but instead began to get dimensional fish.
Another “surprise” transition of the season was the need for prompt reassessment of the significance for fish bait on the hook. Mid-November is quite satisfied with the set of lures, consisting of rye dough, small earthworm and maggots. For intelligence I used maggots. Fish on he took regularly, sometimes even without prior skarmlivanii. That’s just very often with maggot on the hook was interested in everything from roach to bleak. Then, if the need arose to cut off the hook a trifle, was the dough and worms. The dough of rye bread worked perfectly at all. In addition to roach, the hook very often sat skimmers.
However, with the cold and the simultaneous slight rise in water level (5 cm), has changed the taste preferences of the fish. Maggot for her was not at all interesting, but the most favorite has become a small moth and dragonfly larvae. And if the bloodworms is the bait of the usual, the dragonfly until recently was listed in my Arsenal as an exotic lure. It and other water creatures (water donkey, Scud, larva of large dragonfly) I’ve used exclusively in early spring, when there is a desire to catch fish in small rivers, and get earthworms was still impossible. But in the fall I had a chance to use it for the first time. Apparently the pre-winter rise of the water was somewhat awakened by these insects, and they began to migrate to the shore, made a great seasonal bait.
Compared to a crank mounted to the back strekozka behaved more actively, and kept it on the hook stronger. Apparently, therefore, the bite of a roach the bait was more “evil” than the bloodworms: float without ceremony, just like in the summer, just went under the water. Fish Bouncing off reliably and often deeply swallowed the hook. Of course, bites of fish on dragonfly was much smaller than the moth, which is not true about the size of the trophy. The weight of some “strekozy” plotvits passes 200
With cold water has changed markedly and the deployment of fish in the pond. While the water was relatively warm, the fish stood in one dense flock at a depth of about three meters. The pack was formed from individuals of very different size and appearance. Mixed in with the roach bite, and bream, and white bream, and bleak. All my long-term developments (several years late autumn large roach I was catching solely on the first shore the drop-off, where the depth does not exceed one and a half meters) in the first half of November last year was completely useless. Near the shore, or nothing at all pecked, or overcame bleak. I began to think that it would be nice to search for new tactics of catching big roach in the autumn. However, with the cooling water, everything fell into place. Flocks of fish divided. Large roach and skimmer bream still went under the coastal drop-off, and a trifle is traditionally left to stand in the deep, and the last two out on the river I was enjoying the gorgeous fall fishing at a distance of 5 meters from the water’s edge.
Not quite the usual for autumn appeared and the ratio of fish to the bait. A long-standing tradition that has become for me almost a law, assumed a strong starting zakim place. After that came the mandatory resting phase, which lasted at least two hours. If this period of time to produce additional supplementation, you can do to ruin a fishing trip.
In November most of the month the fish react to the lure of almost-summer. For starting sukarma locations required no more than 5 balls of groundbait the size of a tangerine. Then, as the flock of fish growing rivalry, it required monotonous, with an interval of 5 minutes, supplementation small size of a plum balls. Sometimes, when towards the evening the fish the fish was more active, I switched to almost okleechnuyu tactics feeding on each sailing snap front float in the water and throws a miniature ball of bait. As a rule, bite another fish was immediately. But in the last days of the calendar autumn had to remember traditional seasons scheme of feeding fish.
The schedule of the outputs of the fish for feeding is, perhaps, the only thing that was completely predictable for fall. As the cooled water exits the fish to feed became increasingly shorter, and the intervals between them, on the contrary, longer. In the first half of the month, while the water temperature fluctuated around + 10, roach fed almost summer schedule: from 8.30 to 11 o’clock and from 14 o’clock until sunset. And the evening bite was always intense, and the fish in the second half of the day across much larger. And schedule it was fair for the whole water body. Neighbors on shore who could not withstand such a long backlava in search of active fish was trying to change the place, but the expected result is not brought.
With the cooling water to + 7 periods of activity of the roach even more shifted to the afternoon half of the day. Now the first way is to feed at mid-day (somewhere from 11.30 to 13 hours). The second time, the fish began to bite in half an hour before sunset. And the peak of biting had at twilight. Already antenna float was made barely visible on the water and the bite was happening on every transaction.
Interesting observation had to do with the weather. His nickname “twilight years” November deserved. The whole month hanging in the air suspended or foggy, or raining, or blowing wind. Roach, as you know, are best caught when moving the atmospheric pressure from the average (739-740 mm) to low (734-731 mm). However, in one of the November best fishing occurred in the days when I did cold waves. Then, for example, on the 19th of November was a typical slushy weather with a temperature of + 7 and a pressure of 736 mm. And on the 20th the pressure rose sharply to 750. All this occurred against the backdrop of strong gusty winds. Summer like weather “surprises” it would be better to wait, however, 20, 22 and 23 I got the best fishing Nov. Such behaviors of the roach in the pre-winter period, I heard from other anglers, but not quite believed it. Now I know for sure that a few days before the onset of cold weather roach began to eat off. As soon as the temperature dropped below zero, the fish activity plummeted.
In General, the Nov with its slush and the cold weather is not a reason to put the summer gear. In our climatic conditions of November, and in December fishing with a float rod it is real. As a matter of personal comfort can be achieved with properly fitted clothing and shoes.
