In the article I’ll talk about how to catch the spring sabrefish on Sbirulino or Bombard-Sbirulino. I will describe the tackle device and how it is caught by a chekhon.
Hearing the word "Chekhon", the fisherman first of all comes to mind an association - a donka with a rubber shock absorber. This donka became a classic tackle for catching sabrefish in the open water season (if interested, read here). But, to be objective, the “elastic band” on the chekhon is not a donka, since this fish is kept in the middle and upper layers of the water . At the same time, it is easy to make tackle as a donkey by hanging a weight on an undergrowth with leashes, or vice versa to make tackle almost superficial if you catch it without additional load.
A distinctive feature of a donkey-gum is its mobility, that is, the bait constantly moves in the water, carried away by the hand of a fisherman, who from time to time makes pulls towards the shore. And this is important, since the chekhon, despite its peaceful appearance, is a real predator. And it is on this quality that the bombard fishing is based.
The basis of this type of sport fishing was the fishing of sea bombs by the Japanese. And they just flooded the fishing market with bombers and soft baits designed specifically for this type of fishing. Chekhon with horse mackerel has something in common. Probably, this served as a general beginning for catching sabrefish on tackles similar to marine ones. In addition to bomber floats and baits, the Japanese also released special spinning rods, which differ from ordinary spinning rods in length. Their size ranges from 3 to 4.5 meters . In addition to this, scad fishing rods are extra soft. These are usually Aji sticks with test scores of 10-12 grams . Another difference between these rods can be called the presence of a hollow top - tubular tip . The same rods are used for catching sabrefish. At the same time, in addition to long and soft fishing rods, for fishing Chekhon, shorter fast-fishing rods are also used, which are needed for fishing from under branches on a wooded shore.
If you follow the Italian direction, then they have a similar type of fishing called sbirulino or bombard-sbirulino. It would seem alien to us types of fishing. Meanwhile, the Sbirulino and the bombardment firmly took their places in the Russian niche for fishing sabrefish for spinning. And, as already mentioned, Chekhon resembles horse mackerel by habits, so it prefers to stay in the mouths of sea tributaries and sometimes comes to desalinated areas of the sea. Therefore, fishing methods are quite suitable for one and the other fish.
Bombard is a combination of a weighted float with a sinker and stabilizer. What is it for ">
Bombards differ in characteristics. There are floating, slowly and quickly drowning scorers. This makes it possible to customize the tackle for a certain type of fish and method of fishing. In addition, the bombers have a certain marking, which indicates the weight of the float in the gr category and the lifting force, which pushes the sbirulino and allows the bait to be transported. Here is the designation in the category G or GALL.
We catch spring sabrefish
Floating bombers are most suitable for catching sabrefish in the spring, since, as we know, this fish prefers upper layers of water. But there are times when even the surface sabrefish usually sinks into the lower and even bottom layers of the water. Most often this is due to the weather and seasonality. That's what bombers of different types are needed for, to follow with the bait after the cactus leaving the pool. There is a choice: change the floating score to a sinking or a slowly sinking one. In addition, there are floats that are able to penetrate under the influence of a certain rudder in the form of a wire bow.
Some scorers can weigh up to 15 grams, but mostly lighter and smaller floats are used. The snap-in is such a scheme:
The bombardment is located on the main fishing line, below the bead-damper, softens the blows. Next comes the swivel and fluorocarbon leash, whose length is usually 80 cm . A light jig head is attached to the end of the leash, on which a soft edible rubber bait is usually mounted.
Twitching wiring is usually used for catching sabrefish for spinning using bombards.
