The bream fishing in gluhozime
Gluhozime called the period of time during which the thickness of ice on reservoirs becomes the maximum, and greatly reduced the amount of oxygen dissolved in water. In Central Russia comes a time in early January and lasts until mid-March. In gluhozime fish is inactive, it practically does not feed. This behavior in this period of time is characteristic of all species of fish except burbot. Probably for this reason, the fishermen call it winter gluhozime. But, despite this, to fish in this winter is possible, without relying on the most outstanding catches.
Fishing for bream in gluhozime – search locations
The bream fishing in gluhozime should begin with the search space, which can hold a flock of bream. This task is not difficult, because at that time bream concentrates on the deep parts of the reservoir. Knowledge of such places on the pond significantly reduces the search area the most appropriate location for catching bream. The most effective may be fishing in areas of holes and exits from them, where the depth ranges from seven metres to nine.
But not all pits with similar depths can contribute to successful fishing, as success requires the mandatory presence in the shery weak currents. This condition is very important because at this time, the second half of winter a big problem for fish is oxygen starvation, and of course improve this figure.
Place fishing for bream in winter, must be associated with deep-water channels with the main channel. In the pits, which are separated by shallow water from the main channel, bream do not stay, and this location of this fish is typical not only of winter, but for another time of year.
Often, the onset of the thaw a pack of bream coming out to a depth of three meters, while in any case not far from their wintering holes.
The bream fishing in gluhozime — bait
After determining the place in which is supposed to be a flock of bream angler needs to get bait. For bait you can use small feed of bloodworms, which must be lowered to the bottom using a special feeder. Disclosure of the trough should be carried out immediately at the bottom of the reservoir, which gives the possibility of formation of concentrated feed spot under the hole.
Very well also use some more open feeders that are at the height of a meter or one and a half meters from the bottom. The bait is scattered over a large area of the reservoir, facilitates the rapid collection of bream under the hole. The depth to which to disclose the trough depends on the strength of the flow, so it may be different. In some cases, fishermen have to drill another hole. From the main hole, which runs complementary feeding «on the square», an additional hole must be upstream (a few meters).
During gluhozime breams become inactive, so the angler should not expect a rapid response to fast-moving bait. The spinner needs to play smoothly and slowly, without sharp fluctuations. When you run the game do not make sudden changes in the horizons of water.
A good result of fishing for bream in gluhozime fishermen often go fishing on a stationary lure off the bottom. Thus it is better to use a fishing rod with a bobber and spinners is to use a hook and a small sinker.
Although bream refers to the typical bottom fish, sometimes he is able to rise above the bottom for several meters. This behavior of fish is difficult to explain, but it is likely that it can be associated with certain changes in atmospheric pressure. In any case, anglers know that so unusual bream behaves when there is high barometric pressure and very rarely, when the atmospheric pressure is low.
