About bait for zander

Coloring and coloring lures. Stepped wiring. Fishing in locked areas. Polyurethane foam bait. Wabiki made of wool. Places for catching zander.

Probably, the main type of zander fishing can be called jig fishing with artificial soft fish or with various imitations of worms. Apparently, this is due to the versatility of the jig, since the trembling twisters and vibro-tails are as attractive to the pike and perch as the zander.

Stepped wiring is the most common

The method of posting is that after casting the bait is allowed to sink to the bottom, then it is lifted by a pull of the spinning rod or the beginning of the winding. Then there is a pause (the bait sinks to the bottom), and again a rather energetic and short winding in two or three turns of the reel. At the same time, the fishing line should be constantly stretched to sensitively fix the bite-grip. It, bite, usually occurs at the very beginning of the rise of the bait or at the moment of its free fall. The grip of a pike perch can feel like a small push, and therefore the tackle should be sensitive, which is achieved by its system. To equip the spinning rod when fishing on jig baits, it is better to use a braid, since it is not elastic, which means that it fixes bites and features of the bottom topography well. Monofilaments with a reduced tensile coefficient are also used. In this case, it is not necessary to put a thick fishing line, since the zander is strong only in isolation from the bottom and already off the coast. When fighting, he walks quite calmly, making pulls in depth and, as if "squeezing" the tackle.

In locked up places

In locked areas, stepped wiring may not be possible, or you will have to devote most of the fishing to pulling gear from underwater marshes and roots. In this case, oscillating non-engaging spinners or various silicone worms with an offset hook embedded in the body of the bait are used. You can also successfully apply foam sponges with doubles, the stings of which are tightly pressed to the bait.

Coloring and coloring lures

The colors and coloring of the lures are of great importance if fishing occurs at shallow depths. At great depths, baits are required that actively react to ultraviolet rays: bright lemon, green with sparkles and white. Despite the apparent nondescriptness and dullness, the carrot color is among the active colors that are clearly visible even in low light sunlight. At dusk, luminous lures are used.

Against the backdrop of bright and diverse lures, sometimes resembling tropical birds, nondescript mouse foam fish are sometimes more productive than the most defiantly bright and expensive lures. They are universal for a wide variety of conditions.

Polyurethane foam baits are mainly used in autumn.

Not differing in a diverse game during posting, they, nevertheless, work well at the bottom, where, like foam rubber, they can play on the course, being vertically or at an angle to the bottom. But unlike foam fish, these baits do not get wet and do not lose their qualities, no matter how much they are in the water.

Given the vertical position of the bait at the bottom, it is better to put a double at the tail, since most of the grip falls on this part of the artificial fish. Also, when fishing at the bottom, pause is of great importance. Step wiring is used in a mode where the so-called step takes less time. The scheme may be this: only one quick turn of the coil and an extended pause of up to 3-4 seconds. For such fishing you need a sensitive rod, on the tip of which you can put a jig nod.

Soft baits include wool vabiks

They fly well, and when they are in the water, they retain air bubbles, attracting a predator. Wabiks fly less in the air, allowing longer casts, and can work at great depths.

Pikeperch fishing spots

When choosing a place for catching zander, you should first of all pay attention to the pit outlets and entrances, as well as to the whirlpools, where the current goes around. The edges and slopes are usually caught in the pit, especially where the bottom is hard.

On large reservoirs it is more difficult to find pike perch parking. But often these places are beds of flooded rivers and sand spits bordering pits. In places with a high density of pike perch, he willingly takes any narrow range, and where it is small or inactive, the castmaster is more suitable.
