The last winters often bring weather surprises, when the first ice begins at a time when it is time for the “dead end” to come. And the winters became warmer. And roach, apparently confused by temperature anomalies, often pecks, like in spring. And the success of fishing is variable, like the weather is variable. You must definitely get on a large school of fish, which at this time moves quite a lot and often, biting the day in one place, the next day leaves, even if the place is fed. Sudden changes in weather and pressure are very detrimental to its bite, which is not uncommon for thaws with rain puddles on ice. It happens that in a very clear sky there are fast ragged clouds that turn into gray clouds before our eyes, and suddenly snow begins to pour out of them. It can last about fifteen minutes, and then the clouds melt just as quickly and the bright sun begins to shine again. Such metamorphoses are called snow charges. But they, despite the transience, adversely affect roach biting.
A roach fishing rod in warm winter. Analog floats
Roach in warm winter weather sometimes suddenly switches to a summer diet . This happens especially often on village ponds, some river-type lakes and is typical for small rivers, more often those located near villages and cities. Apparently, due to the fact that somehow bread and other plant grains here more often fall into the water.
Another characteristic feature is that in warm periods, roach begins to gather at the mouths of rivers and streams, as if preparing for spawning. But, rather, the reason is the appearance of fresh water and oxygen. And often at the mouths of rivers and streams, roach fishing is often the most fascinating and prey.
Using vegetable nozzles and bread, they use fishing rods of a different type, which in their arrangement are almost no different from summer float rods, at least in the lower part of the equipment. A tiny hook-and-eye hook No. 2.5 of the Russian classification is used here, over which a sinker is attached in eight centimeters. A thin line is also used - 0.1 mm per leash and 0.12 mm in diameter as the main line . And this is despite the fact that fish sometimes comes up weighty. But she is still cautious.
The rest is an ordinary winter fishing rod with a fishing rod for installation on supports near the hole and with a sensitive nod of the usual or balancer type.
Attachments for roach
The nozzle is also used in summer - rye crumb bread rolled into a ball, as well as semolina porridge or semolina talker. Often, the most successful nozzle is dough, both white and red.
Bait roach in warm weather
Feeding is very important, it is better long-term, which is called privada. During the course of the bait, it pours out to the bottom with the help of a cone tipper-dump truck. In addition, the method of continuous feeding by hanging the feeder upstream will also be effective. This can be a regular fine mesh with a load. The bait should be finely divided so as not to saturate the fish, but only to attract. It uses simple dry bait. Moreover, crackers will be quite a successful long-playing bait-priva, especially from a roll with raisins and vanilla, as well as with the addition of rye crackers. All this will be soaked and breadcrumbs will go with the flow, attracting fish to the place of fishing. If the mesh cell is larger, then you can use the Salapa porridge with the addition of winter bait for roach as bait.
Catching roaches at depth and strong currents is impossible without a heavier donkey fishing rod. The prototype of the floats here will not pull. And here, most likely, the bread nozzles will quickly erode and carry away with the flow. Only a cool decoy will withstand. But in such places and roach sometimes out of habit prefers bloodworms.
It is better to choose a longer fishing rod for a donkey, with an open reel, with legs for installation near the hole and a hard nod, usually metal or from thick plastic. You can use spring type nods . The Akara Kola A9010B winter fishing rod is very suitable for donk. It is equipped with an open coil with a diameter of 63 mm with a trigger brake, high legs for installing a fishing rod, and most importantly - a spare carbon fiber hard whip with through-rings, which can withstand heavy loads. With this whip, you can shine.
The equipment is the main monophilic fishing line with a diameter of 0.18-0.2 mm with an end pear-shaped sinker. Instead of a sinker, heavy, rewind classic mormyshki are often used. They can also bite if you do long pulls from time to time, as when fishing on a "ball". Above the sinker, a retractable leash is attached. On leashes, you can put fishing line with a diameter of 0.1-0.12 mm. Hooks - number 4 of our numbering.
