Redfin on a float. Fly, match and Bologna fishing rod. We catch on artificial baits and "Passion fruit".
Despite the completely peaceful appearance, similar to the appearance of a related rudd rudd, rudd nevertheless is a hidden predator, since it is not averse to catch the fry. And of the artificial baits, this bright ruddy fish can choose both a spinner and a small wobbler or silicone blende. Moreover, large fish fall on artificial baits, especially in the fall on a spinning lure, which is carried out along the edge of the reeds or in the gaps among the reeds.
Rudd rudder fishing
The simplest fishing for rudd is with a fishing rod, when you can catch a lot of fish and quite weighty fishes. The rudd keeps close to dense thickets of aquatic vegetation. Therefore, when choosing a fishing place, you should focus on this particular factor. The ideal option can be recognized as such when the edge of the vegetation is located on a slope in the channel pit, and on the reservoir on the edge of the pit. If you precede such a place to feed, then fun fishing is provided. The rudd, especially the large one, rests fiercely. Therefore, this fish is a welcome prey for the fisherman, especially if the rudd is large. In addition, it is a very tasty fish, dried and smoked. She has some special taste of her own. True, lethargy and smoking should occur according to the rules. Even such delicious fish is sometimes sold in salted and tasteless shops, which indicates the wrong technology for cooking rudd (read how to dry fish properly).
The process of catching rudd on a float
Usually, rudd is caught with a fly rod, throwing a nozzle or bait for grass or in a small window among vegetation. As a bait or bait, mixtures of roach with a filler of porridge or small earth, collected from moleholes, are used. The bait will be most effective if chopped worms or bloodworms are added to it.
On reservoirs, sometimes the most catchy places are quite far from the coast. These are islands of water lilies or hornwort where large rudd can be kept. If fishing is carried out from the shore, and not from a boat, then you can get to such a catchy point only with the help of running equipment, and these are Bologna and match fishing rods . If we talk about spring, then at this time you can’t go fishing for rudd without these fishing rods, because at this time the fish is literally teeming with flooded bushes.
The most commonly used Bologna fishing rod is simpler and lighter.
It does not require special Waggler type floats, although Bologna equipment also has more massive special floats with a tube in the body of the float for attaching fishing line. But many anglers often make analogues of Bologna gear right on the shore from a telescopic fishing rod with access rings, supplying it with an inertia-free reel and using ordinary flywheel or sliding floats. Usually floats of at least 4 grams are used, but sometimes they are also heavier, especially when long-range casting is required or in difficult weather conditions with strong side or headwinds.
The most attractive bait for rudd is the worm. Moreover, the worms are a universal bait for catching rudd throughout the open water season. She takes in some places both bread and maggot, but worms are still the best bait.
Rudd on artificial bait
As already mentioned, large rudd is well caught on artificial baits in various ways. One of such methods is fishing on "Passion fruit" . This bait is not a running one for middle water reservoirs and refers to sea bait. Nevertheless, it attracts a large rudd with something, probably a salty taste, since this bait is made of edible rubber. To catch the rudd on the “Passion fruit”, a spinning tool called a split shot is used . Nothing complicated. Just at the end of the main braid, a leash of fluorocarbon or monofilament fishing line about 30-40 cm long with an offset hook is attached to which the edible rubber bait is mounted. "Passion fruit" can be called unhooked. Offset hiding in the bait itself. Therefore, this bait is caught in the grass, where the rudd lives. Here they catch this fish also on small wobblers called “pop-popper”, as well as on oscillating and rotating spinners.
