Spring carp – it is something special! There is nothing better for a fisherman than to see after a long winter carp bite, feel his powerful jumps and, of course, to have a pick-up in this underwater marvel. And yet, if we take into account the nature of the spring when everything is blooming and abounds, every moment spent on a fishing trip, remember.
To be honest, I am not a supporter of carp in the ponds – the wrong impression. But fishing in the river – it’s something! You go on a fishing trip and do not know what is waiting for you today, that bite and where, what a surprise present to the river.
It is interesting to catch carp is on the rivers. It is there that are the best places carp. Although active exploration will have to be held annually, because there are times when one pit carp caught well, and on the other, just a hundred meters from the first, one day you will not see any bite.
I do not know what the reason, perhaps, is with the topography, forage, water temperature, or with some other factors – it is already the case ichthyologists. I’ve noticed a pattern – when snap when reeling cling young algae, so the fish are more active, and we can hope for a good catch.
Sami fishing grounds are relatively shallow pits on the outputs or inputs near the islands. The average depth at this time of 1.5-2 m, it is here that the water warms up faster, there is first the underwater vegetation and small crustaceans. Before you start fishing carefully bottom of the float marker, and in its absence – a sinker. I’ll be honest – I do not like fish in unfamiliar places, but still alone. Much better, if there is already someone went from acquaintances or friends and talked about their observations.
If you are the first time at the new location, ask someone from the local catch if someone here carp, and that look on the bank of the scales of large fish and, as if it is sad sounds, jars of corn, empty packages of bait – although this is not a guarantee of success.
If your favorite locations are far away from your place of residence, it would be nice to have reliable sources of information, when at any time you can call to the local fishermen and ask all that are interested in the activity of the fish, the water level (for many bodies of water that question is always relevant). In the end, absolute guarantee good catch nobody will give you.
Usually I start catching carp somewhere in the beginning of May, although it all depends on how early it was spring. Fish activity begins when the orchards in bloom, the flood has passed, and the water is slightly warmed, and some white fish in rivers is in Zatoka for spawning. At this time, the carp is more or less active, starts to scour the seabed in search of something edible, so we need to use all his skills and gear thrown, patiently wait to capricious Madame Fortuna presented the jackpot in the form of river carp.
I’m not the first season for the spring carp using feeder rods. One plastic Silver Stream Carp SSCRP360, second composite Mikado COMBAT 3,6 m to test up to 90 grams. When you need to perform long casts, use longer and more powerful rods. Today the market offers a fairly wide range of feeder rods.
Coils Line Winder PR 3000 is the third season are active and do not fail. On the spool monofilament diameter of 0.25 mm or 0.16 mm cord. I would also like to say about the hooks. How many times have I burned on this issue when pecked carp, one after another, and I could not realize any bite – hook unbend or fish was rising from them. Lately I’ve been using hooks Gamakatsu LS3614F №6-8-10 and Gamakatsu LS2314N №6-8-10.
The main interest for the spring carp fishing – the use of feeders such as Method, by the way, quite popular among fans of modern carp fishing. It may be sliding feeder type «In-Line», and those that are attached to fishing line and equipped with a rubber shock absorber. Although the use of these debatable enough feeders.
There are times that when you pull or blank toe, the line is cut off, then the fish runs away with the whole design. Of course, it is doomed to destruction. By the way, there are many places where the use of such gear is strictly prohibited. In most cases, I find on the equipment with the type of feeders «in-line» – they are much more sensitive, do not have any obstacles between the hook and the rod tip in the form of tightly bound sinkers and feeders. Species «Method» is a lot of different shapes and weight. A significant difference, except for the species, they may not be important to a well-kept bed – not rolled over. Another advantage of these feeders is that when they are raised above the reeling bottom and tested various underwater obstacles without problems.
It mounted accessories like this: on the main fishing line strung or tie feeder, plastic stopper, swivel, leash of thin cord length of 10-15 cm and a hook. To lead is not overlapped with the casting of the main fishing line – hook attachment dent in the bait that the manger, but so that when they hit the water, he separated. When the fishery there is a strong current, I use a snap-in “helicopter” with a long flat sinker.
Usually come to the river in the morning, I am engaged in a comfortable place and begin to prepare the bait. It consists of package purchased bait, a handful of ground roasted hemp seeds, and a handful of kilogram boiled millet porridge. The mixture is added to a jar of sweet canned corn with marinade, all carefully mixed and water is added. The main thing is not to overdo it with water: then how much bait is not a rash, she does not want to cling all.
Now you can fathom the bottom of the float marker, to find prospective areas: sharp bottom swings, depressions, tables. I memorize them using reference points on the opposite bank. During this time, our bait reaches the desired consistency. We divide it into two parts. One of a 1: 1 adds coastal hydrated clay, which was triturated by hand or pre-screened on a special sieve. Balls the size of an orange, lure fishing location manually if near the shore.
In the event that for significantly enough, you can in the middle of the bowl «walls up” several small stones – it will give extra weight. If the distance to the long-term portion too big, use a slingshot to bait with a large clip, the main thing – to get to a point. Then install supports for fishing rods, seat, tank, grab a bucket with bait. Now you can throw the gear and relax while waiting for a bite.
Usually fishing tackles 2. The fact that the two control rods much easier, all tackles are at hand, and as a result of a smaller number of empty strikes and gatherings of fish. Bait used varied. It could be maggot (white and pink), and the worms sometimes good results in May could give the larvae of the bark beetle, it can get in the tree stumps and fallen trunks, removing the bark with a knife.
With baits work well canned sweet corn, green peas, which, if necessary, should be added in the bait. However, bait animals that not only the carp, but also a variety of white fish (bream, carp, and roach); give the best results in May.
Rechargeable tackle every 15-20 minutes, but more often than not have to be sad: on a good day bites happen one after another. Carp biting spring is not as sharp as in the summer – long fish can lick the tip before hooked.
