In the article I will talk about fishing for bream in the spring on the feeder. Where and how to look for bream fishing places in the spring on the feeder? Fixing the range and direction of casting. Bait and bait for bream in the spring.
In spring, bream fishing on some rivers begins even when snow lays along the banks and snow charges are not uncommon. Its early ascent to spawning is characteristic of small rivers flowing into the Volga. At least, such a course of bream in April was seen more than once on such tributaries.
This time can be called the most successful for fishing in early spring to spawn bream. Then, after spawning, the spring feeding of the bream begins. On different rivers in different ways, but in general, real fishing begins somewhere in the middle of May and, especially active fishing, in early June . For this period, many anglers prepare in advance. It is during this period that you can catch the largest bream in sufficient quantities. In the lower reaches of the rivers that flow into the Volga, and on the Volga itself, the success of fishing often depends not only on the time of year and water temperature, but also on the mode of operation of the hydroelectric power station, that is, on the presence or absence of a current. When the current is weak or it doesn’t exist at all, that fishing can be spoiled, And this often happens on weekends. Fishermen often do not go fishing these days on the Volga in the vicinity of the hydroelectric power station. And in the mornings, when there is also no current, the concept of "fishing dawn" has disappeared. There is no need to get up any light or dawn and go out into the water in the foggy morning twilight. Only by nine to ten will they give a flow. Then you can start the engine, get out of the backwater and move to your cherished place at some "Bald Mountain".
Spring bream on a feeder
In the forest rivers, in the spring, bream are caught mainly by the feeder. Water by this time already usually warms up to fifteen degrees, and therefore the bream no longer holds in the warm shallow waters, but goes into its cherished pits. There is his parking lot. But the dining table is located on the border of the pit and the rift, closer to the pit. Usually this border is always the most inhabited. And for the success of fishing, this boundary must be determined. This is done using a marker weight, which is thrown with a feeder rod.
Finding a bream fishing ground in spring on a feeder
The first farthest throw of the weight will give information about the depth at the place of casting according to the time of its fall in seconds or in an arbitrary score “one-two”. Then it is required to determine the location of the very habitable edge, where whole colonies of mollusks usually live, there is vegetation and, therefore, various beetles, worms and larvae swarming at the bottom. Often, before the edge, the smooth bottom in the pit itself is uninhabited. And on the other side of the pit, under a cliff of the opposite shore, there are firewood at the bottom and sticking out snags. Therefore, it is the edge that is the place where the bream goes for feeding. To determine the edge, the marker weight is pulled along the bottom. A sinker glides quite freely along the sandy or clay bottom of an uninhabited horizon. But then he began to climb up, clinging to the grass and shells. So the edge is found. This level is marked on the cord or clipped, but the second option is somewhat unreliable, since it can be shot at the next cast of the filled feeder. This may be due to the establishment of a braided cord in a clip that does not have Teflon or other softening coating. Or the throwing jerk was disproportionately strong. Therefore, fishing line marking is a more reliable option for fixing the desired casting distance of the feeder. And the accuracy of casting the feeder at the same place creates a catchy point there, where the bait will be scattered at the bottom with minimal spread to the sides.
Casting direction fixation
In addition to a fixed casting distance, the casting direction must also be fixed. This is done according to some landmark on the opposite bank of the river: on a tree, bush, snag sticking out of the water. The intersection of these coordinates will give a fishing point, which, after several castings of the feeder, can become catchy. Sometimes it does not hurt to make up to a dozen castings to the desired point of a filled feeding trough before fishing for bream, but without leashes. There are special feeding troughs. After casting, the feeder is drastically pulled along the bottom and the feed is spilled out. Often, such manipulations immediately revive the bream's bite in the spring, you just have to put the usual snap with bait.
Spring bream bait
In the spring, in addition to worms, the bream may be tempted by maggots, bread, a lump of semolina, and a semolina. And sometimes a sandwich of red maggot and Bonduelle corn is also very attractive.
Bait is usually used ready-made for the feeder with a filler of "Salapino" porridge (about bait for fishing).
