Not a predatory fish
Not a predatory fish and the fishing is in the heat of summer has its own distinctive features from catching predators. I am with a fellow fisherman on a little Bayou a great local river. The water temperature is very high, and the activity of the fish reached a peak. We came here to catch bass. From jig lures this time use jig head with a skirt Skirted Jigs and the bait. Caught a few perch, cautiously approaching the broad belt of water lilies. Here an event occurs which has opened for us a whole new kind of fishing. Our baits are perch, and very large the redeye. Since then, we have more intensively engaged in this type of fishing.
Find “hot” places
It was not a random phenomenon, because in the following weeks this was repeated at various reservoirs. The difficulty was to find the right choice for such fishing. Still we fished exclusively predatory fish, so now were forced to change tactics. I quickly established that such fishing is possible only in the immediate vicinity of the dense bottom vegetation. In waters with strong current to catch better in the coastal zone, where warm waters and weak currents have a more dense aquatic vegetation.In ponds to find the right place more difficult, because there are overgrown plants often occupy large areas and are found even in the center of the reservoir. Here productively was fishing from a boat in the middle of the reservoir, we cautiously approached the coastal zones. It is important that aquatic plants only covered the bottom but not too high. Successful we fished in areas where overgrown vegetation behind zones had steeply to deep water edge. In the process of catching it became clear that Skirted lures Jigs at purposeful catching of predatory fish in these areas. These lures imitate forage fish objects, natural types which were moving close to the bottom in the thickets of plants, dragonfly larvae, worms, snails and young fish.
And “Skirt” and “media”
When fishing for non-predatory preferable small, light jigs with protection from grass.
Over time, the market had a decent selection of suitable baits. Lures Skirted Jigs come in various shapes, sizes and masses, with protection herbs and without it. For catching of predatory fish are suitable as smaller and lighter jigs with protection from grass. I prefer Platoon Reins weight 1,8 2,6 3,5 G. and Keitech Mono Spin Jigs weighing 1.8 and 2.6 g. When the grass is thicker, I choose Guard or Platoon Reins Keitech Guard Spin Jig with the same mass. Among the silicone baits, which are pinned on a jig head with a skirt,the choice is so great that it creates a lot of scope for experimentation. We always search for the bait that perfectly imitates the natural food of predatory fish. But the length of bait in total should not be more than 3.5 inches (9 cm), otherwise there may be numerous empty cuttings. In my experience, has performed especially well some Trailer. This Hog Impacts the size of 3.5 inches (9 cm) and Swing Impacts the size of 2 inches (5 cm), Live Impacts 2.5 inch (6.4 cm) firm Keitech, Rockvibe Shads 2 inch (5 cm) from the Reins and HellGies 3 inches (8 cm) from Lunker City. These jigs are combined with the aforementioned jig head with a skirt was a very good choice.
Light, but not too
As we catch the very light bait, and tackle should be light, but not too much, because the big predatory fish can have great power. Depending on the pond and expect the fish I choose short perch rod with a test of 15-25 grams use spinning reels 2500 series with a winding of thin braided fishing line. When choosing a leash are somewhat more cautious. Even when fishing for predatory fish, then put artificial lures that inevitably attack and “toothy”. So, if you can’t 100% rule out the presence of pike, mount a thin steel line. When in the water the pike there are enough suitable thin fluorocarbon or monofilament leash.
To restrain reflexes
Posting bait when fishing for predatory fish is not a bit different from the usual technique of fishing because they take food otherwise than predators. Jig-bait cast in the middle zone of underwater thickets, allow it to sink to the bottom on a tight line, and then tighten to own a very low jumps above the bottom, or slowly stretch it. It is possible to do well by hand. You want the bait moving very slowly and jumps are always between the pause. Most predatory fish have a lower mouth and take food with her head down, so it is important that the bait was like glued to the bottom. When biting we should not immediately do the cutting, as it leads to numerous gatherings. In non predatory fish are relatively small mouth, so they require much more time than the predator to swallow the bait. Recommended after a take of one or two seconds to ease the tension of the fishing line, the fishing rod and then slightly lift up, without making a vigorous cuttings. Otherwise, you can just pull the bait out of the mouth of the fish before the hook has time to pierce. Since most of the scented baits, fish them hold long enough in your mouth, so you may quite effectively to catch this way. But the proportion of false bites always significantly more than when fishing for predatory fish. You can only try through numerous trainings to reduce their number.
Using this technique, a catching of predatory fish is almost always caught only large specimens. Even if the size of the baits seem to be too small for non-predatory fish
they are a good tasty pieces. Whoever the master of this technique and some time will try patiently to catch, the reward will be mainly large predatory fish. We are fellow anglers were catching large Krasnoperov, platic, bream and tench. Were catches and “white” predators, such as ASP and Chub. No in this list to carp. But I’m sure it’s only a matter of time, someday he will take my bait.
