In the middle zone of carp with the end of May, after heating the water starts to pre-spawning migration. Sometimes the carp spawning occurs in late May. In the pre-spawning period the fish are concentrated in the pack and gradually moved to the small place with the remnants of last year's vegetation.
The depth of these places does not exceed one and a half meters. With the heating of water up to +12 ... + 14 ° C carp begins to actively feed here. Therefore, the main focus when looking for carp fishing in this period is attracted shoal waters. And in the middle of summer, and in August, that is as long as the water is warm, carp can be found in shallow water.
And only the wind surges, mixing deep and surface layers of water, and even reckless actions anglers make the fish go into the depths. Fishing in the shallows during the warm water season for the simple reason that happens in the field of natural feeding carp.
But it is difficult, mainly because of lack of training or because of wrong actions angler. It makes sense to divide the waters on bottom topography and the nature of the shallow areas. First, I focus on the waters relatively deep, such as quarries, 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 into the thick of aquatic plants is not climbing; he prefers to keep the passages, perhaps to have a better view and space to escape from danger. Carp in places kept for a short time.
Biting happens in some specific hours, which depends entirely on the weather. Technique and tactics of fishing in these areas is identical to the normal summer fishing float rod. And success here depends more on luck than on skill and calculation. It helps only a very good knowledge of the habits of the fish pond, that is, their behavior depending on the water temperature, wind direction and strength.
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. The presence of carp in the shallow water well observes in calm weather at dawn, when it comes to the shore, to the border of the cane.
Here, fishing is becoming precarious, about which features will be discussed. Everyone knows that the carp comes to their feeding points was chosen in some specific hours. It depends on the time of year and the water temperature, and the nature of the reservoir, and the time of day, that is on when power carp are the most accessible to him.
In some waters carp prefers to go to feed in the afternoon, in the other - in the night, and some - and in the morning, before dawn, hours. Hours feeding carp day depend on the season and on the food if it is artificial or not. Those who bred this fish, teach it to a specific feeding time.
During those hours waiting for the fish feed and ceases to be caught by amateur gear. If "planned power" Carp not, during its feeding is determined exclusively by the availability of food resources of this body of water at a specific, well-known fish time. So, before you go to the pond, does not prevent to find out when usually start the first bite of carp in this period.
If you do know that it begins to be caught about 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 temperature of the water in the pond, the wind direction and the phenomena occurring in the atmosphere and, consequently, the behavior of its food items.
Therefore, the beginning of fish may be different from the usual for a given body of water for 2-3 hours. Sudden changes in weather lead to a deterioration of the fish, up to its complete disappearance, and, on the contrary, the appearance of the appetite of the fish.
For example, torrential rain brings oxygen-rich water reservoirs, which has beneficial effects on the life of all the inhabitants of the pond, so you can watch the fish activity, fish, and at any time of the day after a good rain. Conversely, windless weather sometimes so reduces activity and increases the care of fish; it starts to feed on stranded increasingly short intervals.
Despite the increasing activity of carp spawning in front, he is very careful and catch it now is only sensitive enough gear. Rod - the most technically simple and proven option. It is not necessary in the performance of complex technical actions to retain snap at fishing.
No need to snap and play. Although in my practice it was a case where the carp, like roaches, preferred baits falling in the water, and very wary of the bait lying on the bottom, still attribute it to the exceptional. Practice shows that usually is enough to have in your arsenal rod no longer than 8 m.
No need to use a very powerful and heavy rod with excessive margin of safety - it is tedious and impractical. The fact that the casing is usually 1.5-2 g of the float carrying capacity on the line diameter of not more than 0.2 mm, since fish accounts for relatively small areas.
Hook size should match the size of the nozzle. For the worm may be advisable to hook number 8-10, for the maggots - № 16-18, maize and barley - № 12-14. If you catch a very shallow body of water, it is quite possible that the flywheel rod length may not be enough to "get" to the fish. In this case it is necessary to use match rod with a reel.
Fishing lines -0,18-0,20 mm if the object of the hunt will carp weighing up to 4 kg. Despite the fact that the fishing depth is small, it is better to use the equipment with a mass of 10-12. This is to ensure that the casing has been less affected by disturbances on the water surface current was "anchored" under herdsman and bait lying on the bottom.
Selecting the size and shape of the hook is also determined exclusively by the nature of the bait. The most popular sizes of the plug must be admitted rod length of 11 m. Although it is very common for a successful fishing rod is sufficient length of 7-9 meters.
In order not to frighten the fish, it should be before the start of fishing lure massively selected location, but only in very small doses to finish feeding in the process of catching, if not it will be appropriate. During fishing you should try not to make noise, not stomping and slapping the water. The most difficult to lure while fishing with tackle Match as catching distance can reach 70 meters.
The winners are always those who use slingshots to deliver the bait. Ability to use a slingshot to lure allows selected location very accurately. In addition, a slingshot, you can make a point of catching very small amounts of bait that do not scare away the fish.
One point is selected immediately from the length of the rod, and the second - or to the side, or closer to the shore. Desirably, the second point was at least a small difference of depth. The bait should be focused as a more concentrated at the point of catching as possible. Scattering bait in area is one of the most frequent causes of failures angler.
Lure should immediately en masse, that is placed in the catching point about three quarters of the prepared baits, which is not less than 2-3 kg per point. If catching point is located very close to the shore, the amount of bait on it should be limited to about three handfuls. Place finish feeding catching only makes sense after a few fish caught when watchful flock temporarily leaves the point of fishing.
You need to throw very small lumps or portions of bait or bait nozzle. At this time, it makes sense to try to catch another lured point. Selection fishing lure in place determined empirically, and when the nozzle (generally of vegetable origin) is found, this is normally and terminates experimentation.
Typically, a minimum set of baits consists of maggots, feed, worms, barley and sweet canned corn. Last tip is most popular because of its unexpected for our fishermen appeal for carp, bream, roach and carp large.
Some anglers try to use corn as bait with various fragrant additives. And do not forget about the moth. The fact that the carp, especially at a very gentle biting, almost never gives up bloodworms. The difficulty is only to pick up a good hook and easy to use as possible snap.
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.
The bite can be shown as a float for reheating, and its rise, it must be remembered that the bite can be very, very cautious, so it's best once again to make a short control sweeps. If the bite is not for a minute, then you need to slowly and carefully move the bait a little to the side and wait again.
Very rarely, but it happens enough that carp bait during its slow descent to the bottom, as can be seen by slack or movement of the fishing line to one side. Print big fish is not easy, but not too difficult. In the case of the flywheel rod during the first jerk fish give it a position parallel to the water surface, so that the angle between it and the fishing line is 90 °.
Restrained first jerk fish, rod gradually rises, but all the movements of Carp keep a straight line, and the angle between the rod. If you catch the plug, it is better to put it in the water and keep at a slight angle to the line. When you use the Match tackle with coil, the simplest - it is to weaken the brake coil and allow the carp to make its first leap from the shore.
Normally, carp fishing line winds up to 30-50 m, and then tighten the clutch a little, turn the fish rod in his. It must be remembered that the second and often a decisive breakthrough carp doing at the moment when it senses the approach of a net.
