Fighting frequent summer beakless crucian carp

Effective tricks and tricks that contribute to the fight against frequent summer beakless crucian carp on lakes and ponds.

With the onset of hot summer days, many floaters and donors complain that the crucian simply "disappears" as if it had never been in the pond. But skillful fishermen at this time find fish and catch it - in cluttered quarries, peat mining, in forest lakes, old river rivers.

Where to look for crucian carp in the heat

In the heat, crucian carp stands in the strongest places, most often in snags, and not traditionally in the grass. And though in the branches of a flooded bush or tree the depths are only about a meter, crucian carp are right here, and not at the depths of the grass. They catch good “bast shoes” in grassy windows, but not large ones, but those that are easy to cover with a hat - you still need to be able to tear out! Attempts to expand and clear the windows in order to make it easier to catch, and even attach a small place lead to the fact that only a small carp is pecking, and large specimens leave, stitching into grassy wilds.

In the lake snag, fishing for carp is more successful, and the fish behaves bolder here, letting the boat close. In any case, kilograms take boldly when fishing with a four-meter fishing rod in a plumb line on the mormyshka. The nod is used long and soft, at the end of the beacon, which helps to see a careful bite at dusk, since usually the best nibble is observed at dawns. And only with the wind the nod changes to a harder one. As a rule, most of the bites go when lowering the bait. The main game is a smooth slow descent, sometimes with a little playing along.

Mormyshki of various shapes are used, and since it is almost impossible to get rid of hooks and breaks are frequent, then mormysheks manage with cheap store cast models. The main working colors of mormyshek are black, matte and silver. Interestingly, in summer crucian carp, the latter do better not in dark water and poor lighting, but just the opposite - in bright sun and clear water.

Often in the summer at quarries and ponds on a hot afternoon, with a bite, generally a guard

The fish seemed extinct. And only the “fishing TV” - the echo sounder - clearly shows that the crucian carp has not disappeared, but simply stands above the pit of the halfway. And when the wind intensifies, the flock rises almost to the surface. They just don’t try floaters to snatch at least a couple of decent tails in such difficult conditions, but in vain, there’s nothing to say about the donkey - only roach and perch are interested in bait. And here also a mormyshka comes to the rescue in a compartment with a 6-7-meter fly-fishing rod, the float is most often not set.

To strengthen the bite, an artificial bait is usually planted on the mormyshka - dark colored beads, cambrices, balls of black or brown rubber or dark foam. Experienced crucians say that in the wind the crucian begins to feed on any flying midges falling into the water, and artificial imitations on mormyshka work well. The bite is quite noticeable even without the use of a float - the fishing line leads to the side, and even decently gives to the hand. When the crucian carp rises to the surface of the water among the water lilies, “tearing” leeches and insect larvae from the bottom of the leaves, natural bait (maggot, bloodworm, small leech) brought in with the same mormyshka brings the best results.

Nozzles and complementary foods

In summer, fishermen who are floaters often experience fishing, when crucian carp takes only on bloodworms and worms (not dung beetles, but local ones that were found here on the shore), rejecting the most sophisticated baits. Similarly, in the heat, he rejects any vegetable bait. Moreover, it was noted that plant food sometimes frightens crucian carp altogether, in any case, the fish simply departs to the side precisely after feeding and for a long time does not return to this point. This was especially noticeable when plant foods were aromatized even with a small amount of “proven” aromatic additives. It is interesting that in the same reservoir, crucian carp in April-May can respond very well to odorous food, but in summer it starts to turn its nose. But superbly with the same bloodworm and chopped worm, it works great in summer water. Successfully feed and when fishing for crucian carp with a mormyshka in a plumb line. Bloodworms or pieces of a worm interfere with clay, roll up small balls (with hazelnuts) and throw a few pieces at the place of fishing.

Of all the many summer fishing, experienced crucians made conclusions

Throwing tackle is more profitable not from the edge of the grass to clean water, but vice versa. However, at the edge, crucian carp is only a passage, which does not always stop at complementary feeding. Therefore, it is more profitable for large fish to climb into the very thicket of canes. If there are only overgrown canes around, then the smallest windows that break through the mormyshka are searched. Where a snag can be seen among the cane, they first break through to it. If the depth allows, then they put on overalls and catch them in the middle, if not, then a boat comes to the rescue. Experienced anglers themselves began to sink the driftwood among the endless expanses of grass, reeds and reeds, while claiming that there is no better “bait” for large crucian carp.

On some peat lakes, crucian carp are calculated at the very floaters (floating peat islands overgrown with grass), the fish feed on them in the upper layers of the water, and fishing for crucian carp with a float loaded onto a bait slowly planning down - maggot, bloodworms, pearl barley, is successful. . In order for the bait to slowly sink to the bottom, the weights on the fishing line are shifted to the float itself.
