Pike perch in Donkey in Astrakhan, how is it? Live bait for fishing. We catch pike perch in the fall on a "ride". Choosing a fishing spot.
There are a great many ways to catch underwater predators, including zander. But new ways and tactics are being invented to capture this prey desired for any angler. After all, it is fanged and rests on the fishing line stubbornly and the fish is deliciously delicious.
Donka in Astrakhan
Recently, a good friend came from the Lower Volga. He told a lot of interesting things about how he fished there with local fishermen and how he rested in those blessed places that are considered to be a paradise for a fisherman. He also talked about catching pike perch on a donka with a rubber shock absorber. It seems to be nothing new, but instead of the usual for our places tyulka or bait fish in the form of a small roach, local Volgars quite effectively use silicone fish. Instead of natural bait, twisters and vibro-tails are planted. And what, during such flexible translucent artificial baits play quite naturally. If you plant baits made of edible rubber, then the effect, it seems, will be even stronger. In addition to the pressure of the current, which forces the bait to play, the fisherman's strength also affects. As in fishing for a sabrefish on a donka with a rubber shock absorber, the same tactical and technical methods are used to catch a prickly predator, that is, periodic pulling of the fishing line is performed on itself, during which the bait attracts the predator even more actively with its oscillating movements.
Well, in our places, such a smelling and active bait is most often used wholly impaled or chopped . If we recall how sharp and probably far perceptible in water the smell of a tyulka is, then it is quite possible to understand the greed of zander, which happens to be enough for hooks with fish. But the spider must be fresh. Several times, frozen and thawed tulka loses its fresh smell and smells of slightly rancid fish oil. When fishing on a donka with a rubber shock absorber, when tyulka or live roach is used, tactics with pulls and tempering are used just as actively . Sudak avoids completely motionless bait, unless it is a lively bait.
The use of minnows and bleaches is very effective. Pike perch generally prefers squamous and chasing narrow fish, and these especially. Probably because of the tenderness of its meat and smell, the gudgeon, and the gudgeon, because of the quickness. Often the use of these fish is possible, even if they are snub. Moreover, traditional fixed donks can also work effectively, where tackle pulling techniques are not applied. The only condition is the correct choice of a place for casting such a donkey. And this should be the edge under which there is a dump on the pit, and there must necessarily be a fairly strong current. Then wild fish play quite actively, attracting zander and smell and movements.
"Pokatok" in the fall
Another effective way to use donkeys is to alloy the sinker downstream and return it along with hooks and lures to the boat. Yes, you need a swimming tool. However, capes and peninsulas are sometimes used instead of a boat, for example, on the Volga channel or the lower Volga river. A sinker is often used in the form of a ball. Then it better melts down the smooth and hard bottom, where zander is usually caught. But, of course, you need to select the weight of the sinker so that it rolls not swiftly, dispersing the fish, but with movements, when the fisherman lifts the fishing line and load. The other extreme can be a too heavy sinker that does not respond to the strength of the current at all.
A similar method of fishing is called "rolling" and it is used more often in winter, from ice. But even in late autumn, this method of catching zander is quite effective . Caught in the fall from the boat sheer luster, as is the case in ice fishing.
When choosing a place for fishing with both a donkey with a rubber shock absorber and a regular fixed donka, one should always focus on the presence of a channel pit, which is found by the example of a feeder with a marker weight. That is, at first a powerful cast is made in the middle of the duct or even further. The depth is determined by the time of the fall of the weight tested in advance, and then the load is pulled to the shore. Its resistance and rise up with a creak of a shell rock means a brow. They determine the edge and echo sounder, which is much simpler and more accurate.
