Fishing for carp in winter with ice
Any fisherman wants to catch this fish, mainly because of its substantial size. Carp only move in packs, so when the hook caught the first fish means that fishing was a success. In the cold season, this fish feeds on substances contained in the sludge. As bait it is recommended to use bloodworms.
Before you go for carp in winter, you should choose the right rod with the possibility of depreciation of sharp falls this rather large fish, because if it is too hard, there is a high probability of breakage of the fishing line, consequently, the loss of snap. The main factor is the material from they are the strongest. Modern fishing line is able to withstand the weight of about 8 pounds.
Methods when fishing in the winter is a little different from the method of fishing in the summer. The main difference is in suspended animation, in which carp flows, when the water temperature decreases. In this condition the fish can be almost spring. For this reason, the bait should be lowered almost to the bottom. The best bite starts in calm weather. The place should be chosen near the shore, near the holes where the fish usually swims in search of food.
With regard to the status of ice, much more active the fish begins to bite, when it’s about -12 degrees or passes short-term thaw. In the frost fish rarely bite. As mentioned above, during this period, the fish keeps the bottom. Quite often used jigs in combination with live bait, such as bloodworms. We must not forget that carp is a rather large fish, so the main factor remains a reliable tackle, but would also require a lot of effort during the fishing expedition, the fish always has a very strong resistance for a long time. After hooking, the line must be kept taut. If you loosen the grip and give the fish the space to leap, there is a high probability that it will break the snap.
It is considered to be just the perfect bait for this fish, its full name techno plankton pressed. Bait sold by this brand in any store for anglers. It is made in the form of kegs, consisting of plankton, which contain various additives and flavorings. There are some options of aroma — strawberry, anise, bloodworms, vanilla and others. When the bait hits the water, it almost immediately begins to secrete the odor that attracts fish. Fish usually are not enough itself a bait, and begins to suck water, which is next door, with her mouth and gets the hook. Due to the fact that around the bait, the water becomes muddy, the fish simply do not see.
Every fisherman prefers to use certain gear, as each has its own peculiarity. Bottom fishing with the feeder is used without a float, typically used for catching especially large individuals. For best effect it is necessary correctly to make holes, the best option the distance between them is 6 meters. The main advantage of this gear in a very simple device. To production can take as a monotonous line, and the cord, not much difference. But most prefer fishing line because it can withstand a great weight.
Another lower quality version — float tackle. You will have to use the rod. A feature of the carp is that he always sees the bait from below, the background blue color of the sky. For this reason, you need to choose a float and line in the same shade, so as not to spook the fish. Usually, the bait is obtained to get the trophy about 2.5 pounds.
