The secrets of successful fishing — fishing for walleye
Despite the fact that pike is a predator, it’s not a very fighting fish. Nevertheless, catching this fish is not boring and active. This fish is very respected among the local fishermen.
Catch walleye at any time of the year and in different ways. In the summer, mostly on crankbaits and closer to the fall on the jig. The best time for walleye fishing is from late August until the first frost. During this period, the walleye begins to gather in flocks, and with luck, with one portion can’t pull a single fish.
Fishing early morning, dusk. In autumn, however nibble can be good in the daytime. In the summer with high water temperatures, the walleye a day and goes to night lifestyle.
Zander loves the wide river with slow current, keeps in deep places, wells, in the shallows, avoiding shallow water and a muddy and weedy areas with standing water. Although professional seductrice get no walleye and places like that. This is the master class. Well, and simple lovers of a good time with a spinning rod in hand to which I refer, and myself, better to choose places where the probability of finding a perch, more or less high.
The spinning while fishing for walleye, sensitivity and lightness. The sensitivity that would be any touch of the lure under the water (whether it be Twister or jig-head) has not gone unnoticed, and light, as for the accuracy of the sensations of spinning, you must hold hands, not relying on the forearm. System fast. As we catch on light jig-heads, select the appropriate fishing line – thin and durable. Thin line (no thicker than 0,24) will not hinder the sensitivity of tackle, and hard will not allow the fish to stretch it through another couple of bites didn’t have to replace it. It is important not to miss the bite, as Sudak in contrast to pike, as soon as you feel what is caught, then seek to go deep, somewhere under driftwood or rocks. And chances are good that the line gets confused and you will remain without a leash and without a catch. By the way, many anglers used instead of the metal leash of a solid line (03-05 mm).
When fishing for pike on the Terek, I used the jig head to 10 g, and sometimes less if more shallow area with low flow. It all depends on the depth of the water – melkovodnoe, the lighter the weight of the bait. If fishing is carried out on a deep plot, such as boats, then use a heavy jig head. And it does not matter hard or soft Twister to stick to it. If Zander is there and it is active, it will peck at everything. But if we are talking about fishing from the shore on smaller sections of the river, it is desirable to use light (up to 5-6 gr.) heads and twisters with soft and resilient rubber. In addition, the importance of selecting the head weight and has a stroke. Of course, in strong currents, light jig-head will bear, and what kind of sensitivity tackle here, however. The size of the Twister is better not to get involved. The principle of «bigger is better» does not always work. Sometimes used the Leninist principle of «less is better», especially if the perch is quite reluctant to bite.
The color of the bait is better to choose depending on the type of water selected for fishing. If the river is muddy and dirty, like we have on the Terek, the colour of the lure does not really matter if the water is clear, bright color of the lure is probably an additional incentive for walleye. However, much depends on the activity of the fish. In the period of peak activity it is absolutely no difference what color bait he missed, and he takes everything. Foresight will be, of course, going on a fishing trip, stock up on several twisters of different colors and sizes. And already on site to conduct testing.
Fishing for walleye at lure has its own characteristics. Most suitable floating wobblers with a diving depth to an average of two meters. Wiring horizontal, smooth, almost without acceleration. Wobbler do not have to «dig» and «nod». And fishing Wobbler is much more effective in flowing water — for rivers with significant current. Apparently driving water extinguishes the drag of the crank, which for some reason scares off walleye. The bait is released at a sufficient distance, then slowly and without sudden movements, with short stops to hike up to yourself. However in nature, wiring speed and diving depth of the lure will depend on the specific conditions of fishing.
