Perch is the most abundant representative of predatory fish in our waters. Lives in rivers, reservoirs, lakes and ponds. In some wild waters, bass may be the only kind of fish. Like the pike, the appearance of the perch is highly dependent on place of residence (water, flow velocity, bottom and the like).
Grouper has a wide body and a noticeable hump on the back, which is a massive bone of the fin. The color of the bass often has a greenish-yellowish light and sometimes-dark shades. Across the torso, like many predators, there are distinct dark bands. Living year after year, the bass becomes more «monotone» color. Mouth bass big and strong. Has many small teeth.
The average weight of bass 150-500 grams. Bass more pounds is considered a trophy in our time is rare. However, in some of the photos and videos you can find the information on how and now there are huge perch in the 4-6 kg
Bass leads gregarious lifestyle. Usually the pack consists of 10-50 perch, but in some reservoirs, the number of «striped» in the pack can reach up to 10 000 individuals. Also you should know that the age and size of individuals of the gregarious perch about the same, and the larger the bass, the less you pack. Small and medium perch kept in coastal thickets, and in «Islands» of reeds from the shore. They perch hiding from large predators, but at the same time, and he preys on fry. Large bass are holding closer to the pits and snag places, and to hunt out less. Hunting occurs throughout the day, often morning and evening. Hunting mainly does not change, so catching a trophy bass only by finding and harvesting large areas.
Winter perch fishing begins with the appearance of the first ice on the pond and ends with the rising of the last. Therefore, perch are the most common prey of winter fishing. With the advent of the first ice perch remains in shallow areas of the reservoir, and the water freezes more and more — «the robber» goes further into the depths. As bait use small winter spinners and balance weights, and spinners. On an unfamiliar body of water bass are looking for by drilling dozens of holes, so it is better to know the bottom topography.
With the arrival of spring and the ice melts, perch is most often near the shoreline or near shore vegetation. To avoid huge number of hooks, a perch caught on a small spinner bait. The rod length is from 2 to 3 m, and the length of the line is 1.5-2 M. In this fishing jig to hold 50-100 cm from the bottom or just above it, lightly tapping.
With warming, from mid-spring to mid-autumn perch can be caught on a spinning rod, float rod, clubs and the Donk. There are some features of summer fishing. Medium and small perch looking for in warm water with a jump out of her fry, near aquatic vegetation. When you apply any set of the above.
Large perch found in snag areas of the reservoir, and also the pits. When fishing medium and large redfish on spinning it is recommended to use a jig technique, and the bait to select «edible» type.
When fishing on warm Sunny days, well proven small rotating spinners. Since redfish is not true for cautious fish and often grabs the bait right next to the fishermen (or the boat), long casts won’t be necessary. Perch can be easily caught on the «ultralight» and to come home with the catch, not necessarily the boat.
Weather for perch should be stable. Cloudy and warm days are particularly good for bass fishing. Adversely affected by the sharp drop in atmospheric pressure and strong solar activity.
