Let’s look at what you need to know and consider leaving on the lake or river for prey for each actively fishing in April.
In the first place most of April month wait for fans of catching of predatory fish. It is not surprising, because at this time almost all the predator begins to gain weight and become very active.
At this time, the walleye is considered one of the most active predators. First in the month of April he is actively caught on various jig baits, not disdaining and narrow lures. In the beginning of the month the fish tries to stay away from the coast, mainly near the flanks of, or near the entrances to large bays. This fact slightly complicates the fishing of this fish.
In mid-April, the situation changes drastically. Perch looking for food out in the coastal zone. At this time he begins the so-called pre-spawning course. This time with neterpeniem waiting for almost all experienced fans of fishing lures. In the second half of April to catch a solid perch near the shore much faster than the boats at great depths.
In April pike starts pre-spawning feeding period. Therefore, at this time to catch her is a pleasure. April pike is absolutely not a hard bait. Catch it on live bait, using so called circles (this method of fishing is suitable only for those who have a boat), or artificial bait – lures, wobblers, silicone fish. Hunt this predator, as big fish and small fry. So use the lures will be different sizes. April is a great month for experimentation. Try different sizes and varieties. With regard to place of residence, in search of prey, the pike at this time can be seen almost everywhere, but still preference for fishing is necessary to give the shallow water, where she at this time spends more time basking in the sun and waiting for his victim.
At this time he was particularly active. The April perch fishing is especially productive. He is actively as live bait (to do this, use float tackle) and various artificial lures. Spinning at this time is one of the best gear for catching this predator. As for lures for spinning tackle, it is best at this time to catch rotating spinner. For fishing, try to choose a shallow place near the shore. At this time, the bass like it was there to look for a different fry and worms.

In the first half of April bream tries to stay on the depth and pits, not more than 2-3 meters or the coastal edge. When the water warms up he, along with most species of fish, ready to spawn, approaches closer to the shore. Respectively, and the tactics of fishing you need to plan accordingly. In the first half of the month is best for catching feeder tackle, throwing the bait over long distances, it is too late to apply and float rod. A place for fishing you need to lure. Among the bait you need to use maggots, bloodworm and worm. At this time, the bream gather in flocks, so catching one to waste time in vain, and thrown the bait in the same spot, or miss the prey.
Not the most active fish at this time, but still can be caught, the main thing-to choose the right place. In April, the carp tries to stay away from the coast, close to vegetation and a variety of snags. Therefore, to catch it or from a boat using float tackle, or on a donkey. Caught in this time it is solely on bloodworms or red worms. Another bait for April are not yet effective.
