Fishery for bream

About how to catch a bream with a feeder.

Bream is one of the most famous fish in our reservoirs. There are a large number of ways to catch it. Bream is caught on a fishing rod (about a “float”), on a donka (on a donka), on a feeder (on a feeder) and in some other ways. The bream also pecks at a huge number of various nozzles. Among them are worms, bloodworms, peas, potatoes, and corn. This fish can reach considerable size. Sometimes, fishermen come across bream weighing about four kilograms. But basically, the weight of the bream rarely exceeds two kilograms. The bream is quite tasty fish. Of course, it is slightly inferior to carp, but in smoked form it can even surpass it. Here a lot depends on the skill of the cook.

Recently, many amateur anglers refuse to use ordinary donkeys and catch on feeder. It is quite justified. A well-tuned feeder replaces a whole donok battery. Naturally, if we are not talking about carp rods and fishing for large carp. It is better to use several rods. Although the carp bites on the feeder.

Fishing for bream on the feeder is exciting and sporty. How much pleasure you can get by pulling a large bream on a thin leash. This is not comparable to a donka equipped with a rope instead of fishing line. Yes, and the effectiveness of catching on the feeder most often is higher.

Almost all feeder rods are suitable for bream fishing. For fishing on a large river, it is better to choose a heavy feeder, and on a pond or lake - light or medium. The length of the rod is not particularly important. Coil fit almost any. It is important that she has a good friction brake and smooth winding. That is, a good spinning reel is quite suitable. It is advisable to wind a braided line onto the spool. It instantly transfers bite information to the tip of the rod. There are also disadvantages to braids. The first and main minus is that it does not stretch. This property does not allow fishing line to extinguish jerks of large fish. This increases the load on the leash, sometimes leading to a breakage of gear. The ability to use the brake and the rod correctly saves you from this. It is advisable to use ordinary fishing line at short fishing distances or in winter when the braided line freezes.

It is advisable to use large feeders. Bream is a very voracious fish. And the larger it is, the more feed is needed. The feeder should have many holes. This is necessary to quickly wash out the bait and its living components. You can use special carp feeders. They have no walls, and the bait simply sticks to their base. Only bait for them needs sticky and viscous, different cooking bait options, you can find at You can attach the feeder to the fishing line in different ways. Usually, the angler chooses the method that suits him.

Leashes are made of thin and durable fishing line. The ability to capture a large trophy depends on the quality of the leashes. So, saving on leashes is not worth it. With a well-tuned tackle, a lead of 0.12 - 0.14 mm thickness is sufficient. If the fishing line is high-quality, then on such a leash it is quite possible to pull out a kilogram bream. In the presence of a sucker, of course.

Hooks need to be taken thin and sharp. The size of the hook is selected based on the size of the nozzle. Do not take too small hooks. They can straighten out under the weight of large fish. The hook must be securely tied to the leash. It is best to tie several leashes in advance and change them after playing large fish. No regrets, leash consumables. A dull hook that is not in time can badly dig into the mouth of a fish.

The leash length is selected experimentally. For example, the length of a fishing leash on a river often differs from the length of a fishing leash in a standing pond. (about fishing leashes)

Before fishing, knead the bait (read the recipe for homemade feeder bait). The bream loves to eat and baits need as much as possible. The bait for the feeder is prepared in the same way as for other types of fishing. The main thing is not to forget to add live components. To catch bream, they are added especially a lot. Most often, bloodworms are added to bait. Maggots and chopped worms are less common. Bloodworms are a natural bream feed. Its amount in the bait increases with decreasing water temperature. In some cases, you can only feed with a bloodworm. There is one interesting way to hammer bait into the feeder. It is just great for catching bream. A little bait is driven into the feeder and compacted. It turns out like a cork. A bloodworm or maggot is poured inside. The bait is also clogged from above. Thus, you can feed almost one bloodworm or maggot.

Bream is a bottom fish. It keeps mainly in deep places. On rivers, it can stay close to steep banks, in pits and other places with complex underwater terrain. Most often, bream stands far from underwater vegetation, preferring a clean muddy bottom. Bream is a school of fish. Moreover, schools are formed from fish of almost the same size. The fisherman was lucky if a flock of large bream came up to his bait. However, such flocks are usually few in number.

The gear is assembled and it's time to bait. There are many ways to feed. The easiest way is to simply throw the bait with your hands, forming balls from it. You can feed the feeder itself, loosely clogging the feeder and throwing it in a specific place. The main thing is not to save bait. A flock of bream can stay in one place for a long time, if there is something to profit from in it. During fishing, the place needs to be periodically fed. This should be done as carefully as possible. The bream is a shy fish, and having dispersed the flock, you can no longer wait for bites.

After feeding, you can throw tackle. Several bloodworms, maggots or worms are worn on the hook. Do not be afraid to plant a lot. On the contrary, bream may not pay attention to a small bait. Bloodworms are planted in a bundle, piercing its darker part. After each fish caught or broken, it is better to change the nozzle. Large bream vryatli seduced by a bunch of crushed and leaking bloodworms. Sometimes, in the absence of bites, a combination of nozzles can save the situation. Most often, a bloodworm and a maggot are simultaneously attached to the hook (here read about how and where to get the maggot), but other options are possible.

The gear is abandoned and it remains to wait for the bite. First, small fish will be pulled onto the bait. Among them can be scavengers, roach, and breeding. Their bites are slightly different from those of a large bream. Most often, a trifle tugs at the tip of the feeder, sometimes it is not even able to bend it. Scavengers peck, sharply bending the tip of the feeder. But biting large bream can rarely be confused with biting small things. The tip of the rod begins to bend slowly, sometimes dragging the rod along with it. There is no need to yawn. The hook should be sharp, but neat. A sharp hook bites even harder into the soft mouth of the fish, and it will not go anywhere. Sometimes bites stop abruptly. And only sometimes the tip of the feeder barely moves. This may be a sign that a large fish has approached. She broke up a trifle and can soon peck. Here you need to be especially careful.

Large bream strongly resists. It just doesn't last long. However, you should not relax. The fish must be properly weary. Usually, a tired bream floats to the surface. Once this happened, you can gently pull the fish to the shore. Next, you need a net. This is generally a very necessary accessory in feeder fishing. He is lowered into the water, and the fish is carefully brought down with a fishing rod. Do not try to fish with a net. This can lead to a loss of trophy.
