Once again, I want to share with you my observation, the result of which I use when fishing for crucian carp, roach, and some other fish, when it is necessary to use baits. Those of the fishermen who fish for crucian carp are well aware that this fish, on the one hand, is not so difficult to catch, especially small carp, on the other hand, crucian carp is sometimes capricious. These days, he gives himself out, the fisherman perfectly understands that there is fish, but he does not bite. In general, it is necessary to look for bait and baits with baits that would taste carp. As for bait, here the field of activity and choice is huge. In order not to write at all, I recommend going to the fishing store, where several dozen ready-made baits are presented, which should only be diluted correctly with water and, if desired, add a few drops of flavoring to the finished mixture. In addition, many fishermen prepare bait on their own, and it is impossible to describe all the ingredients, since literally everything goes in!
About the same story with baits and baits. And if there’s not so much bait, if you sort it out (worm, maggot, bloodworm, caddis), then with nozzles not everything is so simple. As a rule, this is dough, bread, boiled cereals, semolina and some other compounds). It is clear that all this is the same as the bait itself can be “improved” with flavorings, sunflower oil, vanilla, anise drops, etc., but this does not always give an effect. In general, one has to think what would be done, what would have been crucian carp to the table.
Bait and bait duckweed
In one of the fishing trips, I watched as a crucian fed actively on duckweed, most likely it either bit off its roots or swallowed completely, it was impossible to make out the whole mechanism. The main thing is that he practically did not peck, but champed so much under the duckweed that even from the side this sound was heard. In general, I decided to use duckweed for crucian carp as a component for bait and bait. At that time, I made everything simple: I scooped up duckweed from the shore with my hands, intervened in bait, and, well, slightly crushed it in the dough. Paradoxically, the fish began to bite, though the duckweed itself in the dough somehow quickly died out, became denser or something, but it drenched in water and restored its qualities.
For the sake of the experiment (it was already much later), I took some duckweed home with me, squeezed it first in the pond, and dried it at home in the newspaper (on the balcony), after which I dried it in an electric coffee grinder. The result was duckweed powder. Of course, the powder is said loudly, since the grinding turned out to be not very thin, but nevertheless, this composition was perfectly mixed in the dough and crushed bread. I note that in dry form this case practically did not emit a smell, but if it was slightly moistened, then the powder gave a faint smell of mud. In general, right on the fishing trip, I put grated duckweed into the dough (the composition is as follows: flour, long loaf, a slice of rye bread, sunflower oil).
As shown by that fishing, and subsequent exits, crucian reacted very well to such a dough. It’s hard for me to say, and I won’t say that it’s only about duckweed, which I added to the dough in this form. But I want to believe that she also has a positive effect on biting. It is clear that each fisherman himself finds his own recipe, tries to find the key to the fish, but now that I go to the carp with roach and fish for the dough, I always mix a couple of whispers of ground duckweed into the dough.
Good luck and all the best.
