About carp fishing
Come on really warm days. Withered dandelions. Grew luxuriantly diverse aquatic vegetation. Already there was a mass flight of moths, of chironomid midges, mayflies. Almost all water bodies a large number of animal and plant foods.
With the onset of stable high night temperatures carp took the typical summer Parking: quiet shallow bays with rich vegetation, gaps in the reeds, rushes, cattail; the flow meanders; on large reservoirs, overgrown with grass shallows, far from shore. Large quantities of food makes the fish very finicky. But the main reason is not that. The trouble is that the carp spawns, the eggs and milt several times over the summer. Although with repeated reproduction, he takes the nozzle, but when cold the spawning stops.
Carp in such periods passes to the endogenous nature of the supply, i.e., during prolonged adverse conditions, the eggs will not vymatyvayutsya, and gradually dissolves, delivering the fish body all the necessary substances. Most interestingly, and in strong. the heat, the female does not throw quite Mature eggs! And the reason is simple — in very warm water with very little oxygen, whereas the eggs for development it is absolutely necessary. So we have male and female carp to carry milk and eggs, waiting for favorable conditions in the reservoir (the water temperature from 18 to 20 ‘C, the minimum oxygen content of 3 mg/l). In appropriate conditions, spawning is immediately restored, and under adverse regime in the reservoir is quickly terminated. In such cases, say the fishermen, carp «flows». Unfortunately, such phenomena are often repeated throughout the summer, and the biting is very bad. But such is the genetics of the carp — because it is the oldest ecological niche — the small lakes in the floodplains of major rivers. These mini-ponds often dry up in summer, and in winter sometimes frozen to the bottom. As a result, in order to survive, the carp had to spawn 3 to 5 times over the summer using any opportune moment. Hence, such rapid development of eggs — 3 to 5 days.
In large deep lakes, reservoirs, rivers develops a somewhat different situation. These reservoirs are not affected by the fish kill, they have better oxygen regime. The result is quite often carp spawn here once or twice, but its population is much smaller. In conditions of acute food competition and availability of prey fish carp at times reaches the maximum size.
In the summer, In medium and large rivers, in the absence of aquatic vegetation, carp are often kept on deep areas near the fairway. Catch it here float rod is difficult and it is best to use a bottom bait with a trough (see figure a — version the trough for the weak currents and the b — variant of feeders normal current (fine-mesh)). The rod it is best to choose a short (up to 3 m) with a soft whip, which will serve as a bite indicator. Coil fit inertial and «grinder». The main forest with a diameter of 0.3 mm, the leads of «braids» with a diameter of 0.1 mm, dark hooks No. 5 — 6. In this embodiment, equipping the feeder itself will serve as a sinker.
The composition of the mixture depends on the strength of the current. If it is weak, the bait should be loose, easily eroded. Conversely, if you have moderate — more dense, viscous. As you have to catch, usually with a boat, a portion of the harvest is marked by a buoy with a line and sinker. The best hours for catching carp in medium and large rivers — from 3 to 6 o’clock in the morning. Of course, there is no guarantee that your attachment will not take some other big fish, but to put on a carp rugged woods and big hooks, so obviously doomed to failure.
Was in my practice such case. In June I was fishing from a boat bottom fishing rods in the middle reaches of the Akhtuba. Generally carp are fairly rare here, but occasionally come across instances of up to 2 kg.
About five in the morning I pulled the first — about polukilogrammovy. Then, quite unexpectedly, took a small satanic. Now I became immediately alter gear: put a basic forest with a diameter of 0.4 mm, the leads of «wicker» 0.2 mm and hooks № 10.
Time, meanwhile, was… After about half an hour, I somehow configured the snap-in carp. But the rod was clearly not designed for large fish. But, whatever happens… and I threw the nozzle… After another bite of the forest stand, leashes, too, but the rod with a Bang broke! As a magician, I was sitting in the boat with the meter chip «sticks», trying to curb the carp no less than 3 kg. the Result was of course disastrous. Taking a spare rod, I again became annoying to redo the gear under carp. In the end, the morning fishing ended in complete failure — neither carp nor carp (crucian and satanic does not count).
On large lakes, reservoirs, large carp in the summer often makes daily migration. In the warm nights and autumn in the early morning he comes close to the shore, and the day departs on depth 3 — 4 m. the Best time for angling is from sunrise. In the presence of at least weak aquatic vegetation small and medium carp is constantly kept at depths to 1.5 m And only at lower atmospheric pressure and cold fades into the depths. It feeds on carp in these times weak and it would be best to switch to catch other fish. In hot weather, when the temperature of the water in a shallow small-prone Zamora ponds carp digs and, of course, does not take.
In reservoirs, large lakes of the flow the chances of success are large. Catch the best of the night, or, at least, early in the morning. But most good bite — not in the middle of the night and once at dusk, hours to eleven, and then an hour and a half before sunrise. You can catch from the shore in «Windows» or from a boat on the border of aquatic vegetation and clear water, at depths up to 1.5 m.
