How technically does catfish catch on quoks?

Catching catfish on a quok requires not only knowledge of this matter, but often good physical and moral training, as catfish are large, furious and stubborn in fishing and very strong. Especially strong-willed qualities are required in the night fishing of catfish. It happens that a large catfish caught drags a fisherman’s boat. Such extreme towing can last more than one hour. And it is not always clear who will prevail - a fish or a person. And on a fragile boat in such fishing, you can go to the predator yourself to feed.

There were cases of attacks by large catfish on people and even on bears who were engaged in fishing in the river or wade it. It is clear that these were giant fish. In ancient times, catfish came across at 400 kg weight. (about the largest fish in Russia)

Catching catfish on quokas has not lost popularity in our time. Quoks are made of durable wood, which resonates well and withstands water blows for a long time. It is believed that the apple tree is the most suitable tree for making kvok. Meanwhile, many catchers make kvoki from other materials, for example, from metal, and believe that the choice of material is not so important, the main thing is to observe the necessary proportions and shape. The sound is made by a concave cup, which comes in contact with the surface of the water when hit.

The tackle device is similar to the design of an old tackle using a cow horn. Only in our time, instead of string, strong nylon cords or braid with a diameter of about 2 mm are used. The cord is passed into the hole drilled in the upper part of the quok handle and is the main line of gear, the stock of which can be up to 50 m and the cord is located on a strong voluminous reel. A leash of about 1.5 m in length is made from a strong and thick braid. Hook choose a single, the largest number 20-36. The size of the hook depends on the size of the predators that live in this section of the reservoir. The nylon cord is best painted with the color of water. The braid also needs to be selected with protective colors, that is, green or blue.

Usually a heavy sliding sinker is attached to the main cord, capable of pulling a thick cord in a straight line and carry the bait to a depth. But rigging is not the most important success factor in catching catfish. The fishing technique is very important, that is, the correct operation of the quok, which often depends on the sounds, a predator will come up or, rather, go away. It is best to gain experience in catching catfish on quoks not from videos, photos and articles, but from a seasoned catfish, being with him in the same boat.

In the work of kvoka, the moment of immersion of a five-cup cup in water is very important and the process of its passage under the surface of the river is no less important. With the right technique, while the quack is in the water, an air bubble forms on the surface of the river. When this bubble bursts, the sound is heard for hundreds of meters. A bubble is formed from a cup of atmospheric air captured by a cup brought into the water.

Technically, the process of catching catfish on a quok is as follows:

After the quack is taken in hand, lower the bait on the hook under the water. Depending on the depth, we measure the length of the cord, and it most often is about 4 meters. After that, we make slaps with a quack on the water. The impact is perpendicular to the surface of the water, and the patch runs under water route in the form of an arc. Hand should not be strained. This disrupts the work of the quok and leads to rapid fatigue.

The value of a patch affects the sound of a kwok. The small patch makes a more sonorous sound. You need to have a few stocks in stock with different sizes of a five-cup. If in quiet water a small patch sounds loudly and loudly, then it will work poorly on ripples and waves. Here you need a quoc with a larger cup. Usually 3 kvok hits are made, and then a pause follows.


As bait use: crayfish, bait fish, leeches, river mollusks, worms, bear, meat, offal, locust.
