Pike perch in the fall on the reservoir

Where to look for zander in the fall on the reservoir. In what ways can it be caught. What lures do they use?

As in any other reservoirs, autumn fishing on the reservoir has its own characteristics. Despite the lifeless appearance of gray ice water, life continues in the underwater world. The “white” fish also feeds, although in smaller quantities and a little less often, predators also hunt. Moreover, in the fall, their activity on the contrary increases, especially when compared with the period of the recent summer heat, when sleepy pikes and pikeperches dozed in pits and under the canopy of grass in the bays, indifferently looking at the same listless roach and carnivores.

Where to look for zander

Sudak must now be sought on the reservoir in the pit dips. And this is most often the flooded riverbeds, Volozhka, along the channel pit near the fairway. On the Volozhka - the former channels and branches of the river, which turned out to be under water - sometimes zander is caught even near the coast. This, of course, is a conditional measure of distance - not far. On the Cheboksary Reservoir, Volozhka is located about a kilometer from the coastline of the left bank. This can be said to be close, since fishermen have to leave the coast for many kilometers by water towards the far right bank, and in winter also fall through in wet snow.

As a rule, there is some current on the riverbank or on the main channel of the flooded river among the still or almost still water and the bottom topography here is uneven, with slopes and pronounced edges (how to find the edge), which very attracts zander and other predators to such places. Why "> spinning, and the method of sheer spinning, to whom, what I like and choosing the place. However, you can easily combine fishing with step wiring and sheer spinning if you use heavy oscillating spinners. Short spinning is quite suitable for such universal fishing. Moreover, with the method Sheer whitening can be caught with an alloy along the edge if the direction of the wind is the same, or if you go downstream in calm weather.

On the edges of the legs, you can also use the method of fishing with a heavy mormyshka with a planted cut tyulka or bleak, but a tyulka is preferable . For some reason, she likes zander more, although live hooking on the hook of a zergel is the best bait for catching zander in the fall. For fishing, it is better to use a luminous mormyshka or stick a reflective or fluorescent strip on a regular bait. Sometimes pike perch prefers more fish tail. Various luminous heavy spinners, for example, are no less successfully used. famous baits of the Admiral type. Also, for some reason, pike perch is attracted in the fall and by a strange-looking spinner called “Swedish pimple”, the surface of which resembles the skin of a toad due to convex tubercles on the bait. You can also stick a luminous strip on such a bait.

The technique for fishing with vertical gleaming is the same as in winter: the bait sinks to the bottom, then rises above the ground and throws up centimeters by forty. Jerks and pauses are selected empirically for specific fishing conditions. At great depths, some narrow spinners work only with a sharp and short jerk. Wide "gliders" are more versatile.

Here, but in more shallow places, a pike is caught, both for spinning and for sheer spinning. She also willingly and actively responds to the bottom stepped wiring of heavy baubles. But it happens that it is also perfectly caught by the grass near the tributary on lighter oscillations.

Pike perch and pike are also caught on bait fish, and at night - burbot.
