Fishing bass Carolina-rigging
Bass is very passive and harmful, especially in winter. You can combat this is by using Carolina rigging. Just between you and me: “Carolina” apply all year round, but it is the best time — winter.
To catch bass in the winter is not so easy. Often at first and don’t know where tiger is hiding at all. To understand this, we must start from the specific conditions of the reservoir. With a typical scenario we face in slow shallow rivers and canals adjacent to the lakes. Such a flow of waters, the perch moved in advance with decreasing water temperature. Here, there are usually muddy areas, which in winter attract forage fish. And because of the biological process of decomposition produces some heat. And, of course, a mild winter like the waters warmed up a little better. In addition, the winter storms here are not as critical. On large bodies of water, the same waves rise and there are strong currents, overturning water mass is literally turned on its head. Under the water there is lethargy. The angler has to be awakened passive fish.
In the winter in addition to crankbaits-suspendered makes sense also to use American methods. I prefer to go on the winter ponds to the Carolina
On the muddy bottom of the “Carolina” best shows your strengths. But Il is different. For successful fishing need not choose a point where it is rotten and smelly. To find out what the mud at the bottom, use the anchor to Remove it from the bottom and smell. Of course, you can use one of the silicone fish, but it’s worth it to go foul on the bottom. to seduce a predator will be much more difficult.
Adhering to simple rules, we can say that the rotation of the flow channel of the reservoir — not the best place for winter fishing. The outer curve is too strong for and hard ground On the inside curve, on the contrary, deposited a variety of substances, and therefore this site will be shallow and uninteresting winter predators.
The place of our hunting will become direct parts of the rivers. Under the water act, of course, there are other factors that determine whether the area is suitable for winter fishing. But on this occasion it is impossible to make generalized statements. Until you try you will not understand. But if it works, then it is worth to delve into the reasons. It may be that the geographical location of the site plays a crucial role. The direction from East to West is more advantageous, because the sun heats stronger, the North shore and the water there will be a little warmer.
If you have found a good place, then try to use my experience in different sections, cutting off the obviously unsuitable options.
Snap with alarm function
Detection and “Wake-up – fish, in the end, the main difficulty, and, at first glance, Karolinska snap-in for this is not the most ideal option. But you can add a service by putting between the sinker and the swivel glass bead, for example. Snap aftershocks stretches along the bottom, but this time the bead clacks against the sinker. The animation is similar to the twitch: two short jerk — pause. Then we repeat this again… this time at perch, located earlier in a kind of lethargy, awaken interest, and it pulls to the bait. Along with the sound effect of a Bob at the bottom creates a cloud of Muti, which further attracts fish. At a distance of 75 cm for a sinker on a leash should be a little silicone fish…
It is important that the Karolinska snap the bait is almost not detached from the bottom and crawling on him. Bass begins his pursuit in the water, attracted by the sound. The first thing he finds is a small fish in the cloud of turbidity. Strong turbidity create twisters with a blade on the tail.
So, curiosity won out, and the bite should not force yourself to wait long. It is worth remembering that sometimes fish can just hang on the hook without biting. The angler will feel then on the next patzke like a fine hook at the bottom. This is a signal to the instantaneous trip! Of course, like situation, when the fish breaks down and goes along with the bait. Usually this behavior indicates that under water a whole flock perch. In this case, the fish no time to think: the onslaught of the brothers provokes a quick solution…
I take already ready to snap and mount them on the main line. So can I, using only one spinning and react quickly to the changed situation. And I don’t have to mess with frozen fingers, with the installation of the water. Where the sinker slides between the Seating loop and the swivel leash, I deliberately choose a more durable line. It is this segment accounts for the largest load while fishing. Here and in constant contact with the ground, and the contact glass beads with swivel. I have deliberately refused from the rubber stopper (designed to protect node) to create two types of noise: one between the sinker and the bead; the second between the bead and the swivel. Of course, the site should be inspected regularly for damage. The leash with the bait I have more slim. Most often I use fluorocarbon with a diameter of 0,20-0,24 mm.
The decisive moment — the knot
The last crucial detail is the knot that fastens the hook to a leash. My personal favorite wielicky node. With his help, I can fingernail to open the small loop, which, if the strike drags on. Optionally, you can apply and rafalowski node. It nezateylevaya loop ensures free movement of the lure.
The advantage of my node compared to zapalowski. in fact. what it signals about the bite! Thanks to a certain number of turns that I do (usually five), the knot is tightened only by contact with the fish. When I. for example, fishing over the field of dead lilies that I have and then happen contacts, in which it is impossible to understand stuck to the weight in the roots of the pond lilies or it was a bite. In this case, after playing I’m just checking the site. If the node is tightened on the hook was the fish, otherwise only a small hook of the sinker.
An outdoor node because that is so important that in conjunction with offset hook gives the bait more freedom of movement. It moves almost like a twitch. The moment when the bait shows a side to his pursuer, is the key.
