Bite. Hooking. Catching
The choice of the moment of cutting deserves a separate discussion, if only for the reason that there are so many representatives of the forest, so many opinions on this matter. And categorical judgments, in my opinion, are not entirely appropriate here. For many years of fishing with the same full-time float, I was convinced that the nature of the bream bite is not always standard. Its nuances primarily depend on the activity of the fish and on the type of nozzle used. Sometimes when narrowing the scavengers at a shallow depth, the antenna only slightly comes out of the water, after which the float goes to the side. Here you can’t procrastinate. And it happens like this – after minor twitches, the antenna pops up, and then gradually or abruptly goes under water. This happens especially often in places with an uneven bottom, when the hook with the nozzle is on a steep dump in depth and the fish that have taken the bait are sent to the side of the pit.
With a sluggish bite, the antenna often partially leaves the water, and for some time remains in this position. It is clear that the bream took the nozzle, savored it with his lips and stood still. Typically, the angler does not stand up and hooks. The result is zero. But you can successfully respond to such a bite, the only condition is to reduce the volume of the nozzle and remove the hook tip from it. At the same time, fish are detected, as a rule, over the edge of the lip. As for fishing with a standard float, in most cases, you have to do a cut at a time when the float leaves the water completely. If you hesitate, the bream will either spit out the nozzle, sensing something is amiss, or will go into the depths, sinking the float. Some anglers prefer the second option, believing that the cut is more reliable. However, a lot here depends on the volume and type of attachment, the severity of the equipment (for example, when fishing in strong winds), etc.
After a successful cut, at first it is advisable to hand over a fishing line a little, holding it in a stretch and watching the angle of the rod (about 60 ° to the surface of the water). A large bream does not make sharp throws into the depths, unlike carp or carp, which can not be said about scavengers weighing 500-700 g. The longer the rod, the farther the coast has to bring the bream to the surface of the water. However, one should not forget that the fight with him scares the approaching flock. Therefore, it would be better if you tilt the rod to the side (left or right), take the fish as far away as possible from the feeding place and only then try to carefully bring it up to take a breath of air.
At the moment of coming to the surface, the bream sometimes makes a sharp turn, turning its tail to the shore. It is always fraught with descent. In addition, when the line is loosened, the leash can wrap around the pectoral fins, which also usually ends in favor of the angler. I take the bream caught in the net by the gill covers and release it from the hook when it is weighed or in water. At the same time, I do not recommend lowering the landing net with fish to the shore, all the more rocky, firstly, for hygienic reasons, and, secondly, due to the fact that the bream should panic jump in the net once or twice – and the breakage of acute hook sting provided. These, in my opinion, are the basic requirements for catching bream from the shore with a float fishing rod with a “deaf” rig.
Match bream fishing
Usually she helps a fisherman when the bream stably feeds at a considerable distance from the coast or for some reason ignores the coastal zone, say, when fishing on a flat bottom, where the depth does not exceed 2-3 meters. In this case, the rod with rings is equipped with a light inertia-free reel, which allows casting the bait to a distance of 30 meters or more. A sliding float can be with one or two attachment points. Most floats for long casting are made with internal loading. When catching deep-sea fish, including bream, their carrying capacity, as a rule, is from 5 to 15 g. The movement of the float up is limited by a stop knot, which fits from a thicker fishing line than the main one.
The advantage of tackle for long casting is that at a considerable distance from the fisherman, the bream attachment takes bolder and more decisively. But there are significant disadvantages. At a great distance it is more difficult to feed the fish, with an increase in the weight of the sinker, the sensitivity of the tackle is lost. But the main drawback, in my opinion, is that the shorter the rod, the more sweeping the hook is required. And this eliminates the use of thin leashes. The fact is that when hooking, it is necessary to take into account the sagging of the fishing line, and also to make an adjustment for the angle formed between the fishing line section from the float to the nozzle and the main fishing line. The greater the depth at the place of fishing, the greater this angle. With a sweeping cut, even if you put a leash of 0.17-0.20 mm, the fishing line may break off when a large bream is bite. This is less common with scammers.
Fishing for bream from the shore, among other things, requires the fisherman to be assiduous and long-suffering. At the same time, luck often accompanies those who better know the situation on the pond. On the shores of more or less large reservoirs near Moscow, for example, various recreation centers are located. In the summertime, it is almost impossible for the commoner to find a quiet, secluded place. Therefore, fishing is often limited to early morning or evening hours. In addition, it happens that in the place of fishing the fattening bleak comes to the surface, which constantly slows down the float. The bream will not take the nozzle. In this case, it is best to go fishing with donkey.
