Biting crucian in early spring
In recent years, crucians have become a kind of "walrus", which, of course, do not dive into the Epiphany ice holes, but often already peck at some ponds all winter. Moreover, the worse the frosts are, the more cheerful anger crucians are thrown on a hook with a bloodworm. And, on the contrary, by spring, when crows bawl in the mornings and “tinker” the tits, when it gets warmer and by all rules crucians should take better, they wander along the bottom in thought and, approaching the bait, float away just as thoughtfully. This is according to the fisherman who posted his report at the local fishing forum. He went to the pond with a camera and took crucian carp under their ice in their native element. It would seem that it's time to liven up crucians and peck, as they pecked on the same pond on the frosty days of February. But something was not pleasant to these capricious fishes. Maybe they are waiting for the arrival of fresh melt water and air under the ice? For too long a fish had to live without light and enough oxygen. In the meantime, the pond is covered with winter snow, albeit wet. But still a thick layer of this snow. However, the cause of prolonged beaklessness of crucian carp may be constant surges in atmospheric pressure this March, when sunny days with high excessive pressure quickly give way to gray thaws with low pressure.
All this is the time cost of an unstable spring, which can already be called transitional.

Big water will go soon, there will be a lot of fresh water and oxygen. The crucian carp will have an appetite, and then the fish will tend to shallow water, which usually warms up earlier than on the channel pit of the pond and generally away from the coastal section of the reservoir. Here, in deeper places, water can remain in the temperature regime of winter time for a long time. And on the low meadow shores flooded with water, among the coastal willows, on sunny, quiet days, the water often warms up to almost summer values. Despite the shallow depths, crucian carp usually gather here in flocks and feed until evening dusk and lower temperatures, when it becomes colder in shallow water than in depth.
Fishing in such places can be difficult if you use float fishing rods with the classic "deaf" equipment, because in such shallow places, along the water edge, the depth reaches fifteen to twenty centimeters. Moreover, such shallow water, unsuitable for fishing, can stretch for tens of meters. These are gentle meadows. A brow, which is a flooded shore of the pond, may be inaccessible for casting a fly rod.
What can be done here for the successful fishing of crucian carp during this period ">
In another case, a fishing rod with a lateral nod can be successfully used among thickets of flooded willow, where at a quite decent depth it is impossible to throw a float classic fishing rod without risk of breaking the tackle. And here the rod with a side nod will help out. You only need to carefully and without casting lower the bait between the branches to the bottom. And sometimes willows stand in deep places, which are flooded hollows and ravines on the banks of the pond. And, judging by the bursts and breakers from the tails in the water, a large fish is kept here.
To equip such a fishing rod on a leash, it is better to tie not a hook, but a small mormyshka of light tones. The bait is a bloodworm and a dung worm. Mormyshka sinks to the bottom and there, with the help of a nod, a smooth game of the bait is performed with troubles of the bottom.
