The traditional and most common fishing gear for crucian carp in spring. The role of bait for crucian carp. Flavors.
With the establishment of sustainable heat on ponds and in river bays, bites of silver carp are increasingly occurring. More catchy places at this time are not the pits and beds of the rivers that formed the ponds, but rather the coastal shallow water where new vegetation is already appearing. Here, the water is warmer, and more feed. Crucians are especially densely packed and stand in large packs at the mouths of rivers and streams, where there are usually a lot of old reeds, and insects are kept on its stems, also basking in the sun, like crucians suffering from them.
Round crucian carp, which often lives side by side with a silver hybrid, is still inactive during this period and takes rarely, only when, as it should, warms up the coastal quiet waters with the sun. For its catch, you should also not throw the nozzle far from the coast. At this time, all crucians adhere to the coastline.
Crucian on a float in spring
Floating tackle for spring crucian carp can be the simplest: from a telescopic fishing rod with a reel to match tackle, which can be used on ponds where large crucian carp live, most often falling behind the coastline on the edge bordering the channel pit. Large crucians have slightly different habits than silver carp with a palm.
But the fly fishing rod is the traditional and most common tackle for catching spring crucian. Rods with a length of 6-7 meters are quite enough for casting into catchy points in coastal shallow water. Floats are used elongated. They are also called “needles”. It can also be the float from a goose feather, familiar from the Soviet times since the Soviet times.
In addition to spring bait - a worm - during the period of warming and often on almost hot days, it is already possible to start using vegetable baits and bread. Often the largest crucian carp comes across precisely these nozzles, especially barley and canned corn. On some ponds and lakes there is nothing better for crucian carp than rye bread. All effective nozzles and bait need to be found on each pond individually.
In the spring, with the establishment of warm weather, the role of bait for crucian carp increases
If in early spring there was no need for bait due to the abundance of worms on the meadow spills, now with the departure of large water, crucian carp should be lured, especially where its density is not so high. Long-term bait works best - bait. She is thrown to the fishing ground for several days in a row at the same time and preferably without fishing. The composition of the bait does not have to be complicated. Usually this is porridge, for example, “salapinskaya”, to which you can mix a small amount of branded bait for crucian carp. Usually on the package it is indicated that the mixture is for a crucian hybrid. But there is not much need for such a bait to fish the fish. But on the day of the first fishing, you will need a bait that is already bright in smells and in a relatively large amount.
From modern and effective baits, mixtures recommended by our famous fishers and experts, in particular, from Salmo, can be distinguished. This is a bait for catching crucian carp - Mondial-F. As a filler, the land will be Terre de Somme from the same well-known company Sensas, or you can use land from mole dumps that can be found in meadows. These are pyramidal heaps of clean and shallow earth, saturated with organic substances. Given that when fishing for carp, bait is periodically thrown in the form of balls, then it may require quite a lot.
In addition, effective fishing may require an effective flavor, for example, Sensas for crucian carp. It should be borne in mind that crucian fish is capricious and even within a few hours its taste preferences can change dramatically, especially if the weather is unstable, which is common for spring. Usually they start with relatively neutral and sweet smells. You can use a dip with the smell of corn to start. Then comes the turn of more active and pungent odors. It can be “garlic” in the form of a dip or natural garlic, which sometimes is enough to rub your fingers, as the bites begin. Strange as it may seem, it reacts very positively and actively to the smell of garlic. Sometimes only the use of garlic causes or revitalizes the biting of crucian carp.
