During the period of gluhozime perch begins to look for places with warm water and with the highest concentration of oxygen. Such places he manages to find mainly in the pits with underwater sources.

Transaction continue to execute as long as the bass will not react to this bait.
The activity of the predator depends on the atmospheric pressure. So, at constant pressure, the perch will be caught consistently, bait can be used the same. A sudden change in atmospheric pressure the behavior of the predator becomes predictable, it starts to constantly change place of residence. In addition it will be constantly changing preferences, this means that the fisherman will have certain periods of time when there is no biting to change the artificial bait and fishing technique.
