Rules for Successful Fishing

Thousands of people go fishing every day! How skillful fishermen increase the catch to unprecedented results? What rules you need to follow in order to surprise other fishermen with your catch all year round!

An experienced fisherman, preparing for fishing, will certainly take into account the conditions of the established weather, inquiringly approach the selection of gear and attachments and will necessarily take into account preferences in the taste of the inhabitants of the reservoir. The rules of successful fishing say: not only knowledge and experience are important, but also a number of tricks that last but not least play their role in successful fishing. Biting is better when the temperature of the water ranges from 12 to 20 degrees Celsius, and completely stops biting when the temperature changes dramatically. That's why biting can change even during the day.

Fishing rules


In summer heat, biting is worse during the day, and in the morning and evening the water is cooler, and the fish bite better. Therefore, in the fall and spring, you can go fishing in the middle of the day. Of great importance is the direction in which the wind blows, when from the north, the fish do not bite. But two types of fish - perch and pike - are caught well in the spinner under such a wind. Cold-loving fish in the south wind peck worse, and biting in heat-loving fish, on the contrary, improves. When the wind is variable, it mixes the water layers, and the amount of oxygen in its thickness increases, so the best nibble in the summer is when the wind blows from any direction.

In summer, calm and calm weather without clouds, the fish do not want to be hooked, this is her rest time. And if there are clouds in the sky and the temperature is not changeable, then a good bite is provided to you, but when the clouds fall low, the temperature also drops, do not expect a good bite.

Rains and thunderstorms

On thunderstorm rainy days, the pike pecks. Many fishermen have noticed that crucian carp readily swallows bait after a series of summer rains. After heavy, generous rains, the water level in the river is elevated, then the fish rises upstream to find food in the flooded places, begins to bite eagerly, but this bite is short-lived. With a drop in water level, nibble also falls. With muddy water, nibble is worse; when the water brightens, it improves.

Overgrown ponds

Choose overgrown ponds as your place for fishing, fish love to gather around the vegetation. Another good way: watch the surface of the pond and the behavior of gulls. The fish rises to the surface of the water to eat insects floating there, while circles are moving along the water, splashes from the tail flapping. Seagulls circle where there are many fry, which means that specimens are found there and larger.

Narrowing points

If the river is wide, choose a place for its narrowing; on a narrow river, biting is better for whirlpools and reaches. It would be nice to find a deep hole on the lake, usually they can be found behind a sandy or rocky scythe. Good nibble in places where sedge or shrubs are plentifully overgrown. If you can find a wreck or a destroyed bridge somewhere, do not hesitate, the nibble here will be excellent. In clear water with a clean bottom, look for grassy areas, and for copious shoots, look for so-called “windows”.
