Bream fishing in late summer

Catching a bream at the end of summer on a small and large river. What gear do you use? What bream is caught closer to in the fall. What bait to lure a bream at the end of summer.

Although the real summer heat still reigns in the afternoon, in the mornings one can already feel the approach of the frosty autumn matinees, when frost will be frowning on the grass and the puddles will begin to grab with thin ice. So far, only if you go out into the courtyard at dawn, the fog creeps along the grass, in which the breath of the North is felt. In the meadows, this fog lies for a long time, until the sun rises. And only when it has thoroughly warmed up, the fog begins to reluctantly creep into the lowlands and the river water.

Bream at the end of summer on a small river

The appetite of the fish also changes, although it is still not so noticeable, because for days, as already mentioned, there is real heat in the middle of summer. Therefore, on a small river, as in the middle of summer, fish bite only from three in the morning until half past five, rarely until seven. This schedule is also “observed” by the local bream bream. Therefore, you need to barely dawn to go out to the river, and better - ahead of time, in order to have time to throw gear and give time for the bait to start collecting fish.

Fishing tackle

As in summer, a feeder gear works best on a small river on a small river. Only now feeding troughs weighing 70-80 grams are no longer needed . Even on a rod there are quite enough feeders weighing no more than 40-50 grams, and in some places twenty- gram feeders are stable at the bottom. Moreover, in quiet bays at the border of the channel and the back stream, bottom-mounted installations are more efficiently used in the form of the so-called “rocker arm” with two short leads and a spring feeder weighing 15 grams, mounted above on a cord or fishing line. Despite the proximity of the feeder and its nodes to the hooks, scavengers pay little attention to these details and peck normally . This topic is often exaggerated in articles where it is recommended to put leashes almost a meter long because of the caution of the bream. It is likely that in the fishing of large bream these nuances play a predominant value, but in the fishing of scavengers and bream up to a kilogram, they do not affect fishing performance. In addition, fluorocarbon leads are less visible in water than feeder fishing leads, although the latter is much stronger than fluorocarbon.

Nozzles, bait and bait

Closer to the fall, the priorities of the bream and scavengers in choosing a nozzle and bait begin to change. Increasingly, fish begins to peck at “sandwiches” of worms and maggots. If in the middle of summer such combined bait aroused interest more often among perches and ruffs, then in August early in the morning more bites occur precisely on animal baits. And this is understandable, since from that time on, at the break of summer and autumn, the fish begins to actively feed the fat it needs during a long winter numbness. Now, very fragrant and sweet biscuit feeder mixtures do not cause such excitement in fish, as in June or July days and nights. Starting from this time, you can already add bone and fish meal, various syrups with the smell of fish, crayfish and shrimp to bait mixtures .

Catching bream at the end of summer on large rivers

On large rivers, for example, on the Volga, the fishing conditions also change. Fish often completely ceases to be taken on shallow spits and coastal areas off the left bank, where the current is weaker.

Bream, white-eyed sope, silver bream, blue bream, ide ide move closer to the fairway and the right bank, where the current already has a completely different character and strength. Here dominated by deep dumps to the fairway, rocky ridges at the bottom. Often, one or more stones at the bottom create the conditions for successful fishing. And it happens that two fishermen, sitting in the same boat, catch fish with different intensities and different sizes. The fisherman, whose bite is noticeably worse, glances at his companion and suspects him of secrecy and some secret secrets that he does not want to share. And the thing is all about that very stone at the bottom, behind which is a school of fish. All these features of the bottom topography when choosing a place can now be determined using an echo sounder. And it is best to anchor in specific places that have some noticeable differences in depth and obstacles at the bottom to form a lull and vortex jets formed from a strong current cut by a stone at the fairway (choosing an anchor for a boat).

In such deep places with a strong current, they are caught with powerful feeders with feeders weighing more than 250 grams and side rods, which are in tight connection with the feeder using a heavy lead ring connecting the cord of the heavy bucket feeder and the fishing line of the side fishing rod. Such gear is called “ringing” (about catching a bream on a ringing).
