Bream on the feeder in late summer 2017

The article describes the bream fishing on the feeder in the late summer of 2017. What to use nozzles, bait and which to choose when bait.

With the approach of autumn, the previously blooming water becomes more and more transparent. In the mornings, a piercing smell of autumn is already felt - frosty morning mornings and gray cold fogs. But during the day, quite often there is motionless heat, and warm winds bring heavy clouds, swollen with water, from which neon-blue lightning strikes. The sky is breaking in thunder, and large drops of rain are falling on the warm earth, raising dust.

Noticeable changes in temperature and water transparency also affect bream habits. His eating habits and the frequency of feeding are changing. And the fisherman has to consider these seasonal changes.

The best time for a good bream

At the end of summer, the classic early dawn sometimes already loses its meaning. In deep places, where the water warms up longer than on the coastal parts of the reservoir, the biting of the bream on the feeder can begin, it would seem, at inopportune hours - at nine in the morning. In July, fishing was often finished at this time. But on a coastal dump in a channel pit, that is, on a classic brow that a fisherman usually searches for with a marker weight or an echo sounder, the early morning is still relevant. Usually the coastal edge is shallow and the water here is warmer than at depth.

Nozzles and bait

Closer to fall, plant tips begin to yield to the traditional worm (read about worms here). If in July the most popular baits were semolina, cool semolina, somewhere barley and pearl barley and corn, then at the end of summer an increasingly intense biting of the bream on the feeder is observed when a “sandwich” from a worm with maggot is used as bait. And sometimes even the usual dung worm becomes a priority for the bream. This is especially often the case on the Volga Current, where a large bream is kept and fattened on deep brow lines before autumn.

But in urban reservoirs, slow-moving or weakly flowing, Bonduelle corn with planted larvae of a meat fly often becomes the main nozzle, on which scammers and bream are most often taken, avoiding even a maggot worm. The best effect is seen from the use of red colored maggot, planted on a hook above the corn grain. It turns out a beautiful nozzle, noticeable at the bottom and attractive to the bream. (see how to paint maggot here, at the end of the article)

Bait & Flavors

It is too early to apply bait for cold water with animal components, but too aromatic summer mixes with fruity and biscuit odors should already be added to the filler with some caution. These bright smells can do much harm. Suitable and inexpensive mixes from Dunaev - "Bream" are suitable. In addition, Akara Bream (Bream) gives a good effect. They can be sprayed with bait and bait before casting. Salapino porridge, which is cooked from barley and millet with the addition of dry corn and barley groats, as well as vegetable unrefined oil and vanilla, perfectly works as a filler.


An excellent result is shown by ready-made erection from a spring feeder and a “rocker arm” with two leashes at the ends. This applies, of course, to reservoirs with still water or where there is a weak current. In moderate and strong course can not do without feeders, cells. When using mounting with short leads, there is no need to fear that a careful bream will not fit the nozzle. If you put leashes even from thick fluorocarbon, they will be invisible at the bottom. This eliminates confusion in gear, which is inevitable with long leashes or with the use of a feeder-cage and a long leash in the form of various loops and paternoster. Such equipment of the feeder is unacceptable on a reservoir without a current or in a quiet bay of the river, not to mention fishing in village ponds.
