The choice of location and time of fishing
With the advent of autumn, the carp does not change its traditional deep-sea areas, especially if in these places there is safe shelter. To leave such an interesting place he will be able only in case, if you change the temperature while in winter it only oxygen starvation.
Deep places do not feed the fish, so she has to leave in search of food, and it is primarily shallow water, but the cold is doing its job.
- At the beginning of cooling, when the water has not had time to fully cool down, in shallow water, there is still something good and a carp out on them to feed, especially in the morning and evening.
- When the water has cooled, and it is the middle of autumn, the carp on such sites have nothing to do.
But not so simple. In the autumn possible the intervals when the days marked increased action of sunlight, which leads to anomalous warming and, as a consequence, to a rapid heating of the shallow water. This, in turn, certainly attracts the fish, including carp. At this time, the catching carp is better in the afternoon when the water warms up to maximum temperature. At night it will cool down and in the morning fishermen near the pond doing nothing.
With the onset of cold weather, aquatic vegetation sinks to the bottom, so that the summer promising place carp is no longer interested. Dead leaves and stems of underwater plants are no longer interested in living organisms, and if there is something good at the bottom, it closed an irresistible carpet settled to the bottom dead plants.
Great promising place may be the areas where live colonies of mussels are located at depths more than 2 meters. Therefore, in the autumn, these places can be efficient.
Carp do not mind to dig into the muddy bottom to find something edible. Such places may border on hard bottom. Therefore, knowing these boundaries, the tackle should throw in a hard bottom, but closer to the sludge.
Based on this, we can conclude saying that in the fall the nature of fishing has a different character than in the summer. Autumn count on scoring catch in the morning is not necessary, but the fishing day can bring a lot of fun. It is safe to say that main bite has at the time from 10 a.m. till evening, when the sun’s rays cease to warm the water.
Biting carp and weather conditions
Carp prefer warm weather conditions, and when any cold its activity reduced. For autumn is a typical favorable conditions for carp fishing are:
- Overcast but warm weather, with winds South and South-West directions.
- Weak drizzle of warm origin.
- Sunny weather, calm or with light wind, but warm.
If we talk about the fall, in this period, the carp feels the slightest change in the weather in one direction or another. Watching the weather, it is possible to draw definitive conclusions in favor of productive fishing, if the above mentioned conditions took place for several days.
We can safely say that the closer to winter, the carp will become less active, especially in the autumn should count on cold, rather than warming.
Unfortunately, weather is not the only factor that can affect the carp bite. There are many techniques of fishing which allows you to successfully catch this fish in November.
Tackle for carp fishing in the fall
For carp fishing in the autumn period of ordinary float rod is not suitable, since the fish will have to take from the deep. The most viable option is the use of bottom gear. This may be a Donk or feeder tackle, but the main condition that they have to meet is increased sensitivity. This is due to the fact that the carp are biting in the fall not as active as in the summer, and in autumn it resists not so much.
The top for the rod better not to use carbon, and fiberglass, because they are softer and thinner react to the bite. Has its own characteristics, and when equipped with the rods, which should also be talk, but it will be later.
Features of tactics of carp fishing in the fall
The basis of such tactics is a feature of the behavior of carp in the autumn. First, it is not so active, and secondly, in some areas of the reservoir may attract large numbers of carp. On this basis, we can say that there are both pluses and minuses. If the pond friend and fisherman knows the bottom topography, the problems with fishing will not, unless weather conditions interfere. If the pond is not familiar, the problems provided as it is difficult to determine the concentration of fish, except that, to use the sounder. Otherwise, it is unlikely to lure the carp to the place of fishing.
As the carp activity is reduced to a minimum, it is necessary to change the tactics of bait. Since fishing is done in cold water, then one or two pounds of bait a day should be enough. In this case, you need to make and start casting bait in point fishing, but in much smaller amounts. During this period the appetite of the carp is weak and he eats only what he needs. After all, winter is coming and you need to not only eat, but to eat so that you can stock up for the winter nutrients.
When using bottom gear or feeder with the feeder, it is necessary to use feeders of smaller size while maintaining the optimal rate of fishing. For this period are 4 casts per hour. This will allow not to get the carp feeding and a time for tool selection and use dips.
If we talk about the nozzles, the carp do not mind to eat the choicest of worms, but in autumn the diet can only get some of these worms. With this in mind, in autumn you can go on a crank, spitted on the hook from several pieces. Alternatively, you can use silicone rings to tie up a few bloodworm in one nice bundle. It is worth to highlight the flavors, without which modern carp fishing just does not make sense. Of course, the flavorings should be added, but this should take into account the specifics of the autumn fishing related to fishing in cold water. If flavor perebivay, it may not only be of interest to carp, but to scare him. This is especially true when fishing on reservoirs where is absent a current. When angling for is not so crucial.
The use of flavorings is associated with changes in the diet of fish. In the autumn the fish goes to food, which is dominated by animal components. So flavours should prevail respective smells: worm, moth, fish, maggots, etc. At this time, the smells of summer, like, fruity and sweet oscow in the fall are no longer active.
Not very expensive will look the variant supplements in the bait bone or fish meal, blood, dried milk or ground of the Zebra mussel.
Without the presence of components of animal origin in the bait to rely on the successful outcome of fishing is not worth it. This applies primarily to wild waters where carp is in natural conditions and feeds on whatever it can find in it. As for the paid reservoirs, everything is different. Forage preferences forage in this pond depends on what it is fed, although there is no particular secret. In this case, the fishermen, going to a pay pond, almost know that carp can be offered.
As you can see, autumn fishing, including carp, it is interesting, but very complicated. At this time it is difficult to expect a positive result, if you do not have certain skills and appropriate equipment. Skills necessary, to be able to find a suitable place, and without knowledge can not do here. You need to know in the first place, the habits of the carp, especially in the autumn. Equally important is the knowledge obtained as a result of the survey of the bottom topography of the reservoir, especially not a friend. The knowledge you will need and the process of selection of tackle, from rods and ending with a hook. Because we all know that when fishing for carp use the special carp hooks. And so, do not take: better to take the fishing line braided, as it has great tensile strength, for the same diameter. Thus, a thinner line is easier to throw a long distance. And that’s not all! Braided fishing line has a specific tension, this means that it will transfer to the rod tip the slightest bite.
