A crucian carp is a very cautious fish, and it is not so easy to catch it, and therefore every avid fisherman has his own secrets for catching this tasty fish. But what to do if you are a beginner, and Karasikov eat the passion you want? Of course, read this article, in which you will learn how to properly build tackles and feed the crucian carp, as well as about what season and at what time of day it is best to catch this fish.
A crucian can be caught both on a light float rod and on bottom tackle, however most fishermen choose the first tool. Anyway, the main requirement for tackle on a crucian is accuracy of manufacturing. Crucians, as mentioned above, are cautious fish, and therefore the float and sinker should be chosen easier, and the line or net for bottom gear as thin as possible. Loud bursts of crucians scare.
Here are the approximate proportions tackle for catching a crucian. The length of the rod is 4-5 meters (it is better to choose a rod of dark green color), the main line is 0.2-0.25 mm, the lead is 5-10 cm, the diameter of the line is 0.15 mm, the hook is 3.5-5 mm
It is better to take a float more sensitively, and to pick up a load so that the float peeks out of the water about an inch.
In early spring, the crucian carp is preparing for spawning, the fish are starved over the winter, and therefore this time of year is perfect for fishing. However, such a prosperous situation does not last long, a month after feeding, the crucian will go to spawn, and then the fish will not be caught at all.
With the onset of summer and the end of spawning, the carp begins to catch very steadily. True, the crucian carp is a bit unpredictable fish, and it has its own schedule, so long periods of good biting can be replaced by a couple-three of absolutely not "cool" days.
Best caught carp in August. The fish begins to fatten up, preparing for the winter - it's time to grab a large crucian! However, already in the early autumn it is rather difficult to catch a crucian, the fish remains active only in places with a very slow current. In this case, if the place is chosen incorrectly, no feeding and noiselessness will not save you.
Times of Day
The best time to catch a crucian is the period one hour before dawn, the dawn itself and the hour after it.In the daytime, it is almost impossible to get a crucian, especially if it was a hot day. In the evening, the chances of catching a crucian carp are pretty good, although not as great as during the early morning hours. It is interesting that at night the crucian is perfectly caught!
The main condition when choosing a place to catch a crucian is the maximum distance from the "civilization". Pond should choose a shallow. It can be a lake, a pond and a river bay.
Searching for a place directly at the reservoir, remember that it is better not to choose the familiar places - the crucian will be best caught where the fisherman is most uncomfortable. By the way, the wrong place is the most frequent reason for the zero catch.
Crucians are especially fond of hiding among koryag - here the predator will not find it, and the fisherman will tear the line, and the tackle will not be able to throw at all. What to do? A good solution is to be located near the place where the clumps accumulate, which serves as a crucian house. This fish does not like to move far from home, but it will not stay in it - everyone needs to eat. Thus, the task of the fisherman is to find a place that, according to the description, looks like a crucian's house, arm yourself with a good feeding and lure the fish.
Nozzles and bait
Two types of baiters are used for carp fishing - animals (moldy worm, bloodworm, red dung worm, etc.) and vegetable (semolina, bread, rolled oats, dough, etc.). When choosing a nozzle should be guided by the following rule - if the water temperature is less than 20 degrees, you need to use animal nozzles, above 20 degrees - vegetable.
For bait, usually used porridge with the addition of vegetable oil. You can use flavors, but with caution - a strong smell, rather, will scare the fish. Not bad for the bait odor work dill seeds. In addition, remember that crucians live in muddy places, which means that it is better to throw bait in bulk, and not in large pieces.
So, you chose the best time and place, built the right tackle and fed the fish. It seems it's done, but no! How you pull fish out of the water is very important. A carp, as a gourmet, first tries to taste the delicacy offered to it, holding it in the mouth for a few seconds, and at this moment the float shudders slightly, then a couple of sharper shocks are made, and the float begins to be led away.The actions of the fisherman in this situation depend on the type of bait. Vegetable? You can not hesitate! As soon as the float has finished to hesitate, it's time to hook and pull out. In the same case, if you catch the animal bait, please be patient and wait until the float finishes its “dance”.
