Fishing with spinning on reservoirs, quarries and peat bogs
Fishing from a boat on the many small artificial ponds does not make sense because of their small size. Therefore it is better to practice here coastal fishing spinning. And while the new season is not scored, so to speak, its acceleration can be satisfied with short-lived forays into small reservoirs, quarries ponds. All the more so when there is no trouble in the assembly and disassembly of the boat for one visit, often turns out to visit several of these reservoirs. Fishing with spinning on the reservoirs may not be so varied as on the rivers, but often also quite unexpected.
Fishing spinning at reservoirs
Reservoirs I still usually leave for the boat, thinking that only you can throw the boat to promising places. However, there are areas on reservoirs, where the predator is often kept within reach of shore casting. Sometimes you do not even need to send bait far enough to throw across the track – and you can make a qualitative step wiring jig. It is about the lower reaches of reservoirs – areas at the outlet locks and dams.
As a rule, the beach is well-traveled. The depth at the dam is also good than carnivores and enjoy. Usually, in such places I most look forward to perch – so happened that it was possible to catch large quantities near the different waterworks. However, the case of fishing, which made it clear that there, is a place here for pike. For example, one of the first spinning fishing trips in the past year, I was so eager to throw the bait faster; I did it right from the dam at the machine itself. After casting the lure flew channel, held perpendicular to it, and was chosen on the coastal shallows. Normal wiring such relief was obtained, though not very long.
And what do you think, on the 4th casting feel weak impact on pause at the bottom – and a small pike on the beach. At about the same pike brought following two cast – respectively, 5th and 6th. Only the nature of the bites was different: one is identical to the first repeated nodding rod tip when the bait is just beginning to slide into the channel and the other is due to the classics – the qualitative impact on hiatus, already on the rise at stall. That’s a start!
The guys at that time only had time to uncover the spinners. However, further area near the dam bites not produced, and we set off to explore the reservoir upstream. It is obtained without any problems. And it’s better to do this jig – well then you can feel relief and see how the track. If the pond and a waterfront area are quite shallow, it takes longer other bait. In such places, usually with a maximum depth of one and a half or two meters, I prefer Twitchy. Of course, not every lure flies as far as we would like, and so here it becomes quite demanding wobblers.
One of the most volatile in my collection Coast I would call wobbler Duo Moab F, better than $ 120, but using and 85. First, I somehow first casting pike at 3700 grams, since I believe in him and keep. Another representative of the favorite destinations twitching – it wobbler Lucky John Jerky Minnow. Produced only in one size 10 cm. Installed in the system it also allows the balls to do the long-range and accurate throw. Perhaps the most “noisy” wobblers in my collection. Posting to 1-1.2 m depth. Lures to “rattle” I like to keep not only the classic twitching, and uniform wiring with pauses.
There are suspicions that the noise reverberating balls during a stop wobbler also attracted pike. By Lucky John has branded me and is probably the most quickly pop wobbler –XTwitch. Available in three sizes – 7, 9 and 11 cm, but I often use the last two, larger. Float wobbler XTwitch so fast that lead him without pause and with constant twitching the rod tip at a uniform rotation of the coil. On slow conducting wobbler allows himself close to the surface, which is often also needed. Concluding the topic at range including lures, wobblers to say about the long-distance casting with which I had to face. It Salmo Slider 7, a mini-version of the legendary jerk bait. And floating and sinking versions easily “punch” the wind, and on it can fly 70-80 meters.
It is also affiliated with “shallow faction” wobblers, allowing successfully fished the coastal zone of water reservoirs. The floating version wobbler Salmo Slider 7 is often evenly with regular and frequent small spurts, sinking periodically offer pause. Similar to Poland, the Slider model have Osko. This 3 gliders manufactured version, called the combined Jerk – directly Jerk, also Jerk-R and Jerk-Bass. Unlike Salmo Slider 7 produced only in the sinking version. They work with very high quality, both in the short and in the long jerks. Allow to fish deeper horizon with little pauses or slow posting.
For fishing lures snatch method I usually use a set under the name X-Twitch. This spinning Salmo Elite X-Twitch with a length of 1.98 m and a test of 5-25 m, the same name coil, braid 0.12 mm in diameter and leashes of titanium wire, helping to avoid overlaps. As for the shallow water, where it can be a little depth or underwater vegetation will be stepped up to the water’s surface, there is an option to be sinking bladeless Lucky John Rolling Minnow.
Speed change wiring can vary its passage down to the depth of the surface itself. And any change in the game can cause biting. Another option is the use of shallow fishing silicone bait hook on the blanket. Already in the early summer, some reservoir space can be so overgrown that even going below the surface will lure and then cling to the grass.
Once in the past year on this reservoir, he drew attention to the abundance of frogs in some places. Comparing the collected information, the calculation made on the simulation when you post these amphibians – for the fishing picked up a big two-tailed twister, very similar to the frog. Conducted silicone bait smooth jerks in the upper layer of water, making them a rod tip, or coil, or both simultaneously. Calculation of load and the first bite of small pike began immediately.
However, the offset hook did not provide a good implementation of bites, and casting distance was not great. Therefore, in those places where the vegetation was less already I used another snap on the old bait – or double loaded with more weight or jig head. Wiring is the same – constant blurred choppy in the water column, a kind of pelagic twitching.
Fishing spinning on careers
After pelagic want jig classic, with a stepped wiring on the hard bottom, sufficiently long pauses and difficult loads. It seems that to find such reservoirs it difficult for coastal fishing, which is rarely a good depth will be at a distance of casting lures. However, they are – this career. I had occasion to be in the sand, chalk and stone quarries. In the first percentage. It is here was the most productive fishing spinning. The advantage over other quarries artificial reservoirs can see that here, as a rule, good driving the coast, they are dry and hard.
Also, they are usually high and often carriageways. Well, about a good depth already on the shore, I said. Some quarries throw the bait from the shore managed to a depth of about 20 m. But this is more to the statistics; the main fishing still takes place at depths of 5-6 m. I’ll start with the bass. Sometimes, that they might catch any fish, I turn on the catch of the striped predator.
Good bite when fishing from the shore it can and reservoirs, but there usually is a small grassy perch. In the quarries there is intrigue to catch larger instance. For career perch often use the classic step jig. More precisely, not often, but from the beginning to quickly find a flock perch. When the bass is found, you can go on the bypass leash. Still, the latter usually seek refuge in shallow waters at a depth of good at catching step. Yet because the bottom relief quarries can be very intricate and unpredictable, and the classic jig makes it easier to study it.
Sometimes relief quarry bottom guessed even without casting the bait, it usually produces clear water quarries. Where it will be deeper darker, respectively, where lighter – smaller. A good place to catch the coastal sand pits will be jutting into the waters of the reservoir braids protruding on the surface of the island. If decent depth starts right off the beach, and next to it there is vegetation, it is possible fishing on the coastal zone. It fit well and flying wobblers and various jigs.
In such places have a high probability of biting pike? I caught a pike in quarries and at depth – the bottom rung. However, bottom fishing may be complicated by vegetation, which will cling to the hook. Green filamentous algae often had to meet at the stone quarries, where they can generously cover the bottom, but there they are on the sandy ground. Then, an option is to use spinners. After casting can provide spoon-bait sink to the bottom, and then do the wiring. But even if for a brief moment, finding at the bottom of the hooks have time to catch the algae should start moving baits before.
It is possible to calculate the expense of the time needed baubles, to reach the bottom, and on these casts to do the first pause for a few seconds less. Spinners for fishing career are better to use a weighted core. Many suitable models have Osko. The lightest of them – Stella, Cobra and Pirate, in room 2 have a weight of 8-10 grams. Some other (Spider, Long Big, Scorpions) at a rate of petal number 2 already weigh 11 to 17 grams. Such models and fly well, and allow fishing the bottom layers.
We just need to find a suitable wire speed to the spinner was in the right horizon. With regard to silicon lures for fishing career, here some features I have not noticed – working universal motor oil colors. Perhaps due to good water clarity. In most cases I have used these colors twisters. So much for pike and perch. But in some quarries to our most common predators perch added. Moreover, individual career he generally is the main fish in the catch.
It is primarily about the quarries, which are connected to a large river. Caught perch can directly at the confluence, and in another part of the quarry. Perhaps some part of the walleye comes to the quarry to the river to spawn, and then remains at a certain time, but I think that a significant number of walleye is settled – otherwise he would not have got caught in his career throughout the year, including at the end of the season.
It turns out that, according to these observations, the biggest walleye in his career is at the beginning of the season, when they can be caught here and settled and migratory fishes. So now we should pay particular attention to zander. I usually catch it with a boat, but good results can be achieved from the shore.
Fishing spinning on the moors
It is also a kind of a career, but left after peat extraction. But because of completely different fishing conditions, in contrast to the sand pits, I’ve highlighted them in a separate section. However, in peat lands can meet a variety of depth and character of the floor. In flooded canals will be deeper. On the cards themselves are always finely, and then fit the shallow baits.
Consider both options catching on peat lands
In some peat channel depth can reach 4-5 m. Although the bottom is quite soft, catch speed wiring possible. Sometimes it takes a heavy load, to better feel the bottom. Using the jig is complicated, as a rule, a lot of debris on the bottom of the channel.
Also flooded snags, often interferes and coastal vegetation. Part of it is visible from the coast, some in the water. For this reason, I almost always use in peat lands are not clinging option snap, silicone bait hook on the blanket. It is only necessary to learn how to clearly distinguish the fish bite on the bait touching obstacles. After all, if the latter do sweeps, will dull hook.
Typically, when in contact with silicone lures with a branch or wiring snag I pause and slow rotation of the coil trying to bait the ability to pass an obstacle, and then continue to step. During casting also need to clearly follow the flight of the lure. A lot of twisters and vibration tails left on the bushes and trees.
And like on the other side, and on his own, when casting is done along it. If casting branch was transferred, first remove the trim movement bait, then start posting. And always make sure tension platting happens that pike takes longer to fall silicone bait, immediately after that, “jumping” branch falls into the water and sinks to the bottom.
Due to the possible hooks braid on peat use thicker than normal. Moreover, not prevent the coil speed. As I said before, to check the bottom of the weights can be used is heavier than necessary, and the overall depth is not great. Recently jig for fishing in shallow water main coil I became Salmo Grand Confidence 30 FD. Its large spool allows for more than one turn of line exhausting than usual.
Due to the endless screw styling braid is perfect, which is important when you have to suspend the bait flight arm and the tension during winding platting impermanent. A shallow spool reel Grand Confidence gives you the opportunity to do without winding Buckingham, it is good, at the very rim, lies 125 m braid 0.15 mm in diameter. For fishing I use soft plastic bait in peat lands or elongated shapes and soft silicone, or twisters with a narrow body. The colors work very different – from bright to natural.
Interestingly, in the clear water of peat canals bad himself showed acid color. However, on the canals, where may be present within (especially close connection with the river, which feeds the moors), the water is usually turbid than floods themselves. In the past I often use natural colors, but not rubber, it is applied in shallow waters is possible only on a uniform wiring or pelagic jig, but it is not so interesting.
Fishing with baubles and wobblers
Sami spills are much more extensive than the channels, so here, too, try to pick up something good flying. Of the new baits, not mentioned above, on the moors I used twitching lure Pontoon21 Marionette Minnow, it comes across a good bass. But this is more an exception. From the shore spills often do not manage to get to the main area and often have to catch on the rocks frank, and even overgrown. There are already lures with blades make it impossible to fully utilize them.
Therefore, in high esteem in peat predators Slider- seven, Rolling Minnow, Bully Boo from Pontoon21, as they allow you to fish quality is the surface layer. Furthermore, it allows changing the depth of the passage of the bait during one transaction. From new and interesting things for shallow water I want to mention the soft compound Soft4Play bait from Savage Gear. As in a smaller size (9.5 cm) and average (13 cm), they are quite suitable for catching without additional weights on one snap-factory tee.
Without load Soft4Play go below the surface at a depth of about half a meter. Wiring while it is desirable to slow. Where in peat lands deeper, it turns fast wire harness spinners. These I often choose a wide lobe type “Agliya” – they go in a higher layer of water than turntables with narrow petals. These turntables have virtually all manufacturers, and someone will not release, quite a few different lures have been used on peat quarries.
As a rule, it is the lure of small size – a maximum of 3 rd rooms and up to 6 m. The larger and thus heavier cling more grass. There is also due to the large tee. Although usually swampy bottom, in many places still manages to walk in boots or a suit.
This is usually the coast flooded channels just sandy areas. However, the move is still to be very careful, carefully fingering point for the next step. And indeed on peat lands should walk carefully, even solid banks of canals and spills pose a danger in the form of beaver grooves.
