This article will focus on fishing tactics for feeder rods from a boat. Today we’ll look at how to choose a place and how to anchor correctly. Of course, the best time of day for fishing is early morning. A bream can peck all day, but not as actively and confidently as at dawn. Therefore, if you want to return home with a catch, you will have to leave still dark.
Looking for a place
Despite the general "electronization" of the population, not all anglers are owners of echo sounders. And in conditions of modern pressure on ponds, fishing without this device is not easy. But after all, they used to catch it somehow, which means that now we can! If there is bream on the river, they will certainly catch it on the "ring", and it is unlikely to succeed in doing this unnoticed. The cluster of “rings” is the place to swim. Boats are usually stretched along the fairway – ship passage. It is indicated by special buoys for which you can not swim. Observing fishing ethics, stand at some distance in front of or behind the boat column. If here they catch on the “ring”, then you will definitely catch the feeder.
In the presence of an echo sounder, you can find a place away from the crowd, but still closer to the channel. In the warm season, the bream adheres to depths of 10-20 m. Therefore, fishing along the channel, you are most likely not to be left without a catch, even in unfamiliar places. Areas with underwater pits and slopes will be promising. The main thing – never stand on the ship for fencing buoys!
Depending on the strength of the river and the direction of the wind, different methods are used to “drop anchors”. If the wind is not strong, then we get up on the classic stretching across the stream. First we drop one anchor on a 30-50-meter rope, sail on oars and throw a second. Next, choosing the rope of the first anchor, set the optimal position of the boat and become attached.
With a wind speed of 3-4 m / s, which blows along the channel, you can still fish, but this already causes certain inconveniences: it is uncomfortable to stand across the stream, as the waves hit the side of the boat. In this case, anchoring takes place in a different way. Throw the bow anchor and stretch in the wind. We drop the second anchor where we are carried. In this case, if the wind changes direction, the boat will chat and will have to do a permutation. But here it remains to rely on the mercy of the weather.
You can fish on classic feeder feeders, making close casts or lowering the gear directly under the boat. But since we are on a bream course, I act as follows. Just as when fishing on the “ring”, I lower the net feeder with porridge mixed with the prepared bait mixture under the boat. Replace feeder feeders with lead olives. As a result, there is no need to constantly fill the feeders after casting. In case of weak biting, I return to feeder feeders and catch the nearest sectors. But this is extremely rare. A large feeder collects and holds fish in this place for several hours. And thin 0.16 mm leashes and small hooks No. 12-14 give a much greater chance of bite compared to the rough tackle "ringing".
The convenience of this method of catching a bream on a mini feeder is obvious. If there is a strong landing net, the boat will be clean of bream slime, since all operations to remove the fish from the hook and transfer it to the cage are carried out overboard. No need to get your hands dirty with bait after each cast. You can conveniently place jars with different bait in front of you and experiment using two rods. Anyway, there is a unique romance in boat fishing on the expanses of a mighty river.
