Bet on black bait


Focusing exclusively on the black lure, you can not only win at roulette. I often leave brightly colored lures lie in a box and instead use black twister rotating or oscillating spoon. And the success of this choice proves me right.

When fishing with spinning high hopes for black. If brightly colored lure the fish will not bite if silver baubles rotate in vain, try to put black bait. Often bait is such a joker color and leads to strong biting. But most spinnings bypass the black side of the bait. Apparently, triggered a bad reputation that color: black plague there, storm clouds and, of course, the weekend, which on world markets crumble quotes. But when fishing spinning bait black often increase the chances of success.

The fact that the natural coloring of prey predatory fish is often dark. Black lure simulates, for example, a tadpole, a leech, a small eel and many species of beetles. Bulls-sculpin, ruffs, small perch and other fish feed are also quite dark. In addition, in intensely fished bodies of water such as ponds, fisheries or small streams, fish are very familiar with the color most commonly used baits.

Golden shine petal spinner, wobblers flickering orange body, silvery glare Spoons – all this not only does not encourage the attack, but rather serves as a signal of danger. With baits such stains linked to fish sad experience. On the other hand, seeing the bait black, even fearful predators are becoming bolder to bite. With black color is due to them only good things unalloyed opportunity to feed and fill a full belly.

The color of seduction

As a forage fish for predators of many highly regarded bass. Often, pike and perch are attached to the flocks perch and snatch them from the edges of the individual unwary fish. Clearly visible stripes in the perch are black. Brown artificial lures mimic some forage fish. They are clearly visible, and the predators they are taken more frequently than bright colorful options. In addition, black lures remain visible and the deep wiring.

In contrast, bright colors with depth are lost because the water acts as a blue filter. Red fade bait at a depth of 2-3 m, orange and yellow – a few great depths. The color on the surface which attracts fish, at deep wiring bait may be imperceptible. Black, on the other hand, remains the same (with a slight bluish tint). Surprisingly, black bait fish can be seen particularly well, at least at the surface fishing at dusk or at night.

Due to the dark color of the lure stands out clearly against the background of a bright sky. Obviously, dark bait fish are able to detect better than light. On trout stream at a late hour when the shallow wiring bait I came across it first class items at the black bait.

On heavily fished waters, where the fish have seen the lure almost any color, black, rotating and oscillating spinners are often very catch ability.

Black fly

In some streams, where there is a high press fishing, the fish are usually well aware of the artificial bait bright colors and therefore shy away from them. Therefore experienced anglers often catch trout in the creek with black lures, and surprisingly successful. On the black streamers, especially Wooly Bugger with long tails from marabou feathers, fish is caught perfectly.

One of the most knowledgeable fishermen Belgian Guido Vinck in 1997 introduced me to his strategy of choice for painting the tape. At the beginning of the season he chooses blonde model, because at this time the fry are still glassy, ​​and at the end of the season, when the fry become more clearly defined outline, enlists the aid of the dark streamers. Catches master confirm that he is right. Spinning good trout caught on lure Black Fury.

That tiny size of the bait brings success. Most fish are biting on it immediately after casting or during a short break in the wiring when the spoon-bait allow hesitate to fall to the bottom. Perhaps a mini-trout lure resembles black beetles that summer in large quantities fall into the water from overhanging branches. The stomachs of many trout, which fell for Black Fury, were full of black shells of beetles. And here at the trout, which took one black tail twisters, I have often found in the stomachs of leeches.

Pike likes darker bait

Who would have thought that in the spring pike menu is production of such tiny size as the black tadpole. However, when checking in the stomachs of pike in the spring of French researchers have found more than tadpoles and frogs than fish. And what bait can better simulate the future frogs than small twister held short spurts above the bottom, or black mini-streamer?

Thin steel leash almost no impact on the game of bait and greatly increases the chances of catching fish. Brown lures already highly rated pike. Black wobblers – always a good surprise for the fish. In the rivers, where there are young eels, pike sometimes specialized in the production of light. The same applies to the catfish. The large soft plastic lures black, long and narrow, dormant lure predators out of driftwood.

On black twisters from time to time and you can catch walleye. By the way, this bait can be surprisingly catch ability on intensively fished areas, as most anglers rely on colorful or bright twisters, and black they are the exception. Pike are biting on them safely, particularly where its main food – dark bottom-dwelling fish such as ruffs.

Questions to the topic

  1. Unfortunately, artificial lures black almost no on sale – what to do?

Use the black marker. The bright artificial lures perfectly painted black. Do not forget to paint and belly, because predators look below and see, first of all, his.

  1. Does the rule is true that for light bait fish caught on cloudy days and in the dark – in solar?

In my experience, it usually does not work. Just on cloudy days and at dusk black baits can be surprisingly catch ability.

  1. The lure must be entirely black or quite black stripes on it?

Artificial lures with black stripes, for example, simulate a perch, they are second to none. But the bait completely black because of extreme rarity in intensively fished waters the fish often appear more innocuous.
