About catching perch in the first snow. What and where to catch large perches. What are the traditional mormyshki inferior to rewindless during this period. What lures are more successful for perch on the first ice.
At the beginning of the ice season, perch fishing is one of the most widespread, popular and gambling fishing. Often, fishing for perch is also the most prey, if you do not take into account fishing for zerlitsy. There, of course, more catches. But among other fish, perches in this period stand out for recklessness and excitement. Therefore, it was at this time that the largest humpback perches came across. Moreover, if on the last ice, when the perch is also active, you can find a humpback somewhere on a pit edge, then in the first icefish successful fishing can be in coastal snag and islands with sedge thickets.
Munchysk perch on the first snow
At the same time, the largest specimens of perch more often fall on unwind gear, when a large and active bait, even without a nozzle, causes excitement and aggression in the humpback. Probably, here, in addition to hunting excitement and a desire to swallow prey, there is also a desire to get rid of a competitor. In this regard, traditional mormyshki like yellow "eyes" and similar baits are noticeably inferior to claws . Yes, fishing on a winter balalaika fishing rod with a classic nod and tiny little mormyshka, where bloodworms are oozing, can be just as intense, and often even more intense, but the hasty “sailors” familiar from the palm of your hand are more likely to catch. And only sometimes a quite decent humpback comes across.
However, there are no established opinions in fishing
Much more depends on how experienced the angler is, how persistent he is in search of larger fish. After all, it happens like this: a fisherman who missed winter fishing sat down one hole, and then he did not leave this place, because there pecked a whole day here, as they say, as if from a machine gun. And another fisherman, sitting in the same place, shakes his head, looking at a bunch of "sailors" on the ice, let them go back and decisively go wherever they look. And in the evening, you see, he will return with a dozen seasoned humpbacks caught in the same brass mormyshka with a grain of size and a bloodworm on a hook. True, this dozen large perches could have cost him “bathing” in the ice font, because, most likely, the flock of large perches kept in the snag with green grass, where the ice is always weaker. Sometimes over old stumps that have remained since the time when there was a forest, outlets-outlets are formed. This, apparently, is associated with the process of decay of the tree and correspondingly higher temperature of the water. In the flood zone of hydroelectric power stations, such dangerous places are channels and passages between the islands in shallow waters. If on a wide ice plateau the ice is already five to seven centimeters thick, then in grassy channels with decaying snags the ice thickness may not exceed three centimeters.
Very catchy baits on the first spring are balancers
Their wide and aggressive game, which in December can scare away a predator, is an advantage on the first ice. Flocking perches, competing fiercely, try to intercept each other's prey, and this often ensures a desperate biting of perches on the balancer. Sometimes the balancers without the tee suspended below are more convenient and practical, since sometimes it takes a lot of time to remove all the hooks and especially the tee from the mouth of the perch.
During this period, balance weights of 5-7 centimeters work most subtly. This is if you count on larger production. Small perch prefer bait size of 3-4 centimeters . But this is a conditional division. Large perch can take on a balancer designed for small things, and vice versa. Therefore, the balance must be of various sizes and colors in stock.
