Fishing for carp on the Donk in the fall
Many anglers there is a stereotype that the arrival of autumn frosts is a serious reason “to pull” rod and the end of the season. But really, even in the cold season you have the opportunity to fish for trophy fish, so if you get the opportunity to visit a favorite body of water and look for carp – not to abandon it.
The choice of location
Like other members of the fish fauna, with the advent of cold carp begins to move away from the coast. The previously known “fish” places do not provide the same results, forcing anglers to retire to a considerable distance from shore. In the autumn the fish can arrange Parking at a depth of three meters, preferring areas with raised bottom, underwater trenches, and Islands of remaining vegetation. Large schools of fish stay among the water lilies and in places with muddy bottom. There appears likely to get a real trophy.
A very promising spot for fishing is the boundary of reeds, especially if it is uncool drop off. This place needs to be given special attention.
In ponds with high population of carp should explore the deep areas with changeable terrain. Also, special attention need to give the old beds of flooded rivers.
Choosing a suitable location for fishing, it is important to take into account personal experience and the recommendations of the local fishermen.
Due to the specific behavior of fish and the need to sh in distant, off shore areas the best gear for fall fishing is a Donk. But if deep node is found directly next to the shoreline, can continue to catch poplavochnoj a fishing tackle, because it is characterized by higher sensitivity, which is important in poor and sluggish Kleve. Snap-in rods is carried out in the same manner as at any other time of the year. The only differences may concern the selection of float: if fishing is carried out in calm water, it makes sense to give preference to floats with an elongated shape, while its capacity should correspond to the depth of the location. Too thin products with low carrying capacity will not be able to fix the bite at the depth of 2-3 meters.
When selecting a sediment method of fishing, you need to prepare a short telescopic rod. Based on the fact that too far casts do not have this gear quite justified.
Optimal weight feeders with bait and hooks is 10-20 grams. During the examination, quiet places with little current it makes sense to use the spring trough or advanced methods.
The last type of feeder is characterized by the ability to house large amounts of bait mixture and deliver it to the specified location. To make fishing focused, you might consider open fishing feeders with a flat bottom, called “Platani”. Because of its specific design, they fall to the bottom, attracting the large prey.
The fall fishing is quite reasonable to use two hooks on one tackle. This approach will allow you to determine the best bait and will increase the chances of catching a large trophy. But if the location is full of different snags and the bottom obstacles, it is better to stay on a single hook.
Trade bait mixture and the choice of nozzles
An indispensable attribute of a successful catching carp on the Donk in the fall is bait. You can create yourself or buy in the store. As a basis for future mixture using a cereal or cake. Also a great performance of the famous bait based on breadcrumbs, which is able to attract small and large fish.
If the emphasis is on large prey, the mixture should be “meaty”, with a high content of animal ingredients. Share of chopped worms and other animals shall be not less than 20% of the total weight. If the production of worms is not too difficult, we can simplify the cooking process, creating a bait from the soil and worms. In this case, the content of the cake can be quite small.
Choosing efficient showerheads, preference should be given to the dung worm. However, in some ponds the fish most interested in a simple earthworm or maggot, but the latter greatly inferior worms performance throughout the season in open water.
Apply bloodworms is recommended only in the late fall when the fish becomes very lethargic and passive. To attract trophy production, it is necessary to impose on the hook for a few blowfly larvae, being careful not to damage them.
When fishing for carp in autumn everything is important, and even the most insignificant. So before you go on the water, you need to carefully prepare for the upcoming action, selecting the appropriate tackle, lure and fishing technique.
