So. Spawning ended. Carp is recovering. Swarms of this fish are divided into relatively small groups (in order of size). Karas goes from spawning and begins to lead a regular life, moving through the water, gathering food, occasionally rising to the surface. Fish become very picky about food and is extremely picky when it comes to the weather. The activity of carp continue to be affected by the following factors:
The temperature of the water. Prolonged heat reduces the activity of carp. In the heat of summer carp can be caught during periods when the temperature of water and air is minimal in the night and before dawn. In the afternoon when the water warms up significantly, possible only lingering bite. During periods of prolonged cold rains and biting steadily weaker. Carp aktiviziruyutsya sharply in the moments when the heat comes cool and when the cold rain replaced by warm weather.
Thunderstorms. No atmospheric phenomenon so does not affect the biting of a crucian in the summer as rain. The phenomenon brings with it a sharp change in atmospheric pressure, change in wind direction, short-term change of water temperature and a sharp saturation of water with atmospheric oxygen. Before the storm the fish the fish usually stops. After the storm carp is cheerful, cheerful and active. But before and during a thunderstorm, the fish usually do not bite.
Precipitation. Cold rain after a long period of hot weather fills the water of life-giving coolness. Drops of water bring oxygen, which in the summer the carp can not miss. In addition, the rain washes to the water some insects as an additional source of food for such a foodie, like a carp. Warm rain after a period of cold also activates the carp. You can and should catch in rainy weather, unless of course, it’s not a tropical downpour. Carp are not inclined to bite, and so when the cold weather starts to go a light drizzle.
The transparency of the water. In summer, the water massively develop small algae, which consume oxygen. The appearance of algae leads to a sharp decrease in the activity of any fish and even the fact that the reservoir appears incredible abundance of food. During this period, the water transparency decreases. The lure is in water less noticeable, and less for carp is needed.
Predators and food competitors. Carp rapid fish will not name. This fish is probably better to compare with a cow. Because almost any predator trying to ambush carp. If the bite to tame the place abruptly stopped, and the other peaceful fish to the bait is not suitable, it makes sense to uncover the spinning or try to catch on live bait. Direct food competitors of fish (bream and carp) are always stronger. A flock of bream easily rubbed from the bait shoals of fish or even come to bait before. So does roach, the pack which is always more numerous, and the size of this fish is quite comparable with the majority living in fresh water carp. Just be careful carp tench, but the carp are rarely crossed. Usually they eat at different times.
During this period, special attention shall be paid to the nozzle. Fussy in the summer is extremely picky. Even the consistency of the dough and its composition can affect the activity of fish. Even the place of production of the worm, its smell and appearance will affect the activity of carp. Summer is the best period of catching carp is only because catching is much nicer in the summer.
