The influence of wind on the biting
Over time, an angler begins to learn fishing deeper and deeper and in the end, comes to such important things as the influence of wind on the biting. But since information on this subject and a lot of it is scattered, it is not an experienced angler will find it hard to understand all this mass, so everything in this article is compiled and is on the shelves.
On nibble fish influenced, as was clear with the wind. But it is a very abstract concept, so to clarify: on the bite affects both the force of the wind and its direction. Yes, Yes, do not be surprised and do not hesitate to take this information as it will allow you to save fishing in windy weather.
Let’s go in order and start with the wind direction. For many of the experiments conducted by both professionals and recreational enthusiasts, it was found that the best wind is the southwest! A little worse when the West or Northwest, but the weather is not really affected, as if blowing East or Southeast. The most adverse from the point of view of the fish, considered the Northern and Eastern winds and mixing – North-East wind. They often spoil the whole fishing.
Let’s look deeper – what in the wind are not satisfied with the fish? Seems to be no difference, but the thing is that the winds of the North and Eastern areas that capture the cold air, heading South, mixed with the warm air, forming a cold front, causing a reduction of pressure and temperature. Often and precipitation, especially in summer. However, this is not all the secrets: if a strong westerly wind, reaching about 6 to 8 meters per second, the fish also ceased to believe; but sometimes in this weather a good peck benthic fish – carp, tench and perch.
Of course, as in any other case, there are exceptions: sometimes in strong winds (no matter which direction) nibble suddenly improved. This can be explained in simple language, without going into the laws of physics: the flow of air not only stirred the water, enriching it with oxygen, but also create a wave that washes to shore food, washing it more often and from the shore.
When the wave hits the clay or muddy shore, it washes away your power various larvae, worms, insects, attracting to this place the fish. That’s why biting the leeward shore is always better. But here nature has provided a compromise: the wind blows the bushes with insects, and they in turn, like to eat Chub and IDE. There are cases when a fish trifle here comes the pike. So the wind can render you good service and on the opposite shore. It is important to know how to apply it in their favor.
The first one went down. Proceed to the second criterion. The force of the wind affects the bite a lot more than his Nabiulina. Why? Let’s deal. Suppose that blows the most favorable wind – South-East. Everything seems to be fine, you can go fishing and have to think about the catch, but there is a small caveat: if the wind is strong, gusty, it will cause great excitement on the pond and the bite of many species of fish will come to «no.» Nibble fish will begin during a lull. When the wind is weak and moderate strength (first much better) on the surface of the pond it creates ripples and nibble improves. Very good to catch pike, perch or Chub on the spinner-the spinner. During strong winds, on the border of murky and clear water, with a float rod good bite carp and bream.
Well, it’s time to take stock. The best wind is the southwest. Optimum strength – the ripples on the water. And, of course, don’t forget about the nuances and use them depending on the situation.
