Fishing for carp in hot weather


The onset of hot weather since late spring, when some species of fish have spawned, others only just begun to spawn, and for example, carp somewhere managed to sweep aside the eggs, but somewhere there, leads to the fact that the bite is unpredictable. So now some carp ponds in general ceased to peck, and other bursts of activity are observed. Bleak and went on to spawn several days or is not caught, or very bad bite. Perch fry started to drive, mainly small fish in shallow waters with warm water.

From the viewpoint of stability of fish should be preferred over water bodies, but also in the waters without currents can successfully catch, such as carp, if we approach to catching creative. First of all, you need to realize that a sudden warming water fish, it would seem, should go into the deeper places with colder water.

This is both true and not. Yes, in the hot midday hours the fish is really still adheres to the deep places with colder water, but at night and at dawn or dusk times leaves to feed on stranded. In the shallows of warm water is now the main diet of carp fish – growing up bloodworms and caddis.

Now is the very time fishing for carp, which feeds not only at night but during the day? During the day it is much harder to catch, but solely in terms of masking during small-scale fishing locations. Fishing in shallow water throughout the season “warm water” for the simple reason that happens in the field of natural feeding of the fish.

Feeding areas

It makes sense to divide the waters on bottom topography and the nature of the shallow areas. First, the relatively deep waters, such as quarries and with a narrow shallow coastal zone. Search carp in shallow water in a pond, it makes sense or on the border of the coastal vegetation, overgrown with plants or bays. Interestingly, the carp in the midst of “climbs” most of the vegetation – it prefers to keep the passages, perhaps to have a better view and space to “escape” from danger.

Carp in places held a short time. Fishing is a probability, based more on luck than on the prediction and calculation. It helps only a very good knowledge of the habits of the fish pond. That is, their behavior depending on the temperature of the water and air, the direction and strength of the wind.

Another type of water bodies is characterized by large, wide shallow coastal zone, in which the carp has its constant movement path, chosen by their terms of parking and feeding. The width of this zone can reach several hundred meters. It makes sense to site preparation and complementary feeding fish bites and the expectation in the foreseeable hours.

Fishing time

Everyone knows that the carp comes to their feeding points was chosen in some specific hours of the day. In some waters carp prefers to go to feed in the afternoon, in the other – in the night, and some – and in the morning, pre-dawn hours.

Those who breed carp fish accustom to a specific feeding time. During those hours waiting for the fish feed and ceases to be caught on amateur gear. If carp are not fed in “routinely”, then watch it feeding determined exclusively availability of the forage base of the reservoir at a specific, well-known carp time.

So, before you go to the pond, does not prevent to find out when usually start the first bite of fish. If it is known that carp begins caught four o’clock in the evening, it is better to come to the pond for about an hour a day in order to select and prepare a place for fishing, lure him and set up gear.

Habitual carp feeding time can vary, depending on the phenomena occurring in the atmosphere. So start biting hours may vary from normal for a given body of water within 2-3 hours.

Sudden changes in the weather can cause deterioration of both the fish, up to its complete cessation, and on the contrary – to the appearance of the fish appetite. For example, torrential rain brings oxygen-rich water reservoirs.

It has beneficial effects on the life of all their inhabitants. After a good rain likely observe fish activity, fish, and at any time of the day. Conversely, windless weather so could reduce the activity of the fish and improve the care that she will begin to feed on shoals less and less prolonged periods of time.

From float tackle we have a choice between conventional centrifugal rod, Match tackle and plug.

In the dead of gear

It is not necessary in the performance of complex technical actions to retain snap at fishing. Also, there is no need to “play” snap. Although in my practice have been instances where the carp, like roaches, preferred to take the bait falling in the water, and very wary of the bait lying on the bottom. But I personally such cases refer to as exceptional.

Practice shows that usually is enough to have in your arsenal rod no longer than eight meters. There is also no need to use a very powerful and heavy rod with excessive margin of safety because it is tedious and impractical.

The fact that the casing is usually float with capacities half to two grams per scaffold diameter not exceeding 0.2 mm as necessary to catch the relatively small areas. The size of the hook is chosen solely in accordance with the size of the nozzle. For the worm may be advisable to hook size number 10-12, for the maggots – № 14-18, maize and barley -№ 12-14.

Fishing technique is to accurately throw a snap in place beforehand lured and then wait patiently for a bite.

Using match rod

Selecting the size and shape of the hook is also determined exclusively by the nature of the bait.

Catching plug

The most “running” the size of the connector is necessary to recognize the rod 11 meters long, although very often for a successful fishing rod long enough 7-9m. In order not to frighten the fish in the fishing should be before the start of fishing bait to make a massive chosen location, and in the process of catching finish feeding very small doses with a special cup. During fishing you should try not to make noise, not stomping and slapping the water.

A few words about the technique and tactics of fishing. The vast majority of fishing technique is to hold the bait on a selected location. In this respect, it’s best to catch plug. With the help of accessories is lowered into the water very slowly and vertically, so that the bait exactly lay on the bait. The best bait and leash put on the bottom.

Bits and bait

The choice of bait is important, and here we have to go to all sorts of tricks.

Typically, a minimum set of baits consists of maggots, feed, worms, bloodworms, barley and sweet canned corn. Last bait is most popular because of its unexpected for many anglers, the attractiveness for carp, roach large, large carp and bream.

Some anglers try to use corn as bait with various fragrant additives. Literally every wiring is necessary not only to change the crank on the worm, but also be the next recipe “sandwich”. For example, a kernel barley maggots seat next to the bait moving, and moth – “to smell.”

It makes sense to think about very effective bait – crust of bread. In hot and calm weather carp rises to the surface of the water and just standing. Supervisory angler seen this phenomenon many times. If you manage to throw under the nose of the bait and not to frighten the fish, the carp after a while it will not give up the crust, or better still a piece of a lush, but well-baked. This bait is long enough to float on water.

Personally, I use the test instead of a piece of bread. Well-baked dough with cheese can “relax” any carp. The only question is how to teach this delicacy cautious fish.
