Fishing for catfish on a trout line
To catch catfish, the largest predator of our fresh waters, in various ways, including a ground rod. For this purpose it is initially necessary to prepare a reliable tackle is able to withstand a fight with this strong predator. When hunting for this big fish from the shore will suit danacee quality carp rod with a test of at least 60-80 grams and a length of 2.7 -3.2 m. it is Possible to apply a strong “composite” telescope with a length of about 3 m and with the test of 120-150 g. the Power of these rods will allow you to not only far away to throw a heavy sinker and bait, but also note the trophy in the far distance and to draw out it without any problems.
Coil will also require increased power, has repeatedly been cases, when the mustachioed giant “washed in the dust” an expensive brand, but is not powerful enough coil. From meat grinders should look at very powerful models with a small gear ratio. Because of their design more reliable is the availability of a backstop, it reduces the risk of damage to the mechanism if a strong jerk catfish. Even better leaving somovu fishing to take stock of another coil in the fight with this fish shit happens.
As the main fishing line is best to use braided line with a maximum breaking load not less than 20 kg, it is more reliable than the monofilament 0.7-1 mm. Weights take a weight of 50-200 g, the weight is adjusted depending on the strength of the flow in the shery. It is desirable to make the sinker is not moving, and deaf. Installation of the classic paternoster, leashes are attached to a secure carabiner-fastener. It should be noted that the rigid leashes som dislikes and when careful Kleve may not dare to take the nozzle. For leash perfect carp special braids, but suitable and conventional spinning, as soft. Braid good and the fact that she rescues snap-from chewing Somavia “brush”.
The hook on the ground is always the weakest link, therefore, requires careful selection. Not necessarily that he was large and thick, the main thing is strength and elasticity. Those instances that break, not bend, not suitable when fishing for catfish. It is important that the hook size should match the nozzle. And as it often happens that the fish are biting on very small nozzle, sometimes I use small hooks. In our time bait for catfish are not hard to find there exists a great multitude, not only natural and herbal.
Tastes mustachioed predator in recent years has not changed and the traditional bait is still the best: eel, bunch of worms, Nightcrawlers, slow worm, conch, big black leech, seals, mole cricket, grasshoppers, guts of birds, crayfish neck and of course the unbeatable classic-the frog. Live bait is also a great bait, because it is the main food of the catfish. But gonochnoj fishing apply it problematic, especially when you need long-range casting, as the fish can fly, or be injured. Moreover, such a nozzle is often attacked even at night, the pike or perch.
How to find a promising fishing spot is half success. The nature of this fish pulls it to deep wells, where she lives. The number of baleen giants in the pit depends on its size and nature of the river. In the case where the river is deep enough pits, then each of them can live for a few decent copies. These deep places are located on the bend of the river: the stronger the jet hits the shore, the pit deeper. If the shore is overgrown with trees or bushes and washed away, then place on the bottom will snag and woody stuff, and therefore, the presence of soma, there will be very large. Large baleen if its not a bother, not often out of the confines of the pit, preferring to feed on its slopes. But during the migration happen bite the owner of the river and at shallow depths, although this is more rare accident.
Leaving on such fishing will not be amiss to bring your binoculars. Evening on the river, the fish rises to the surface and the river as if boiling here and useful binoculars. Considering the waters of the river you can see on the surface is melted catfish silently, showing his broad back, and often these fish can see far more than one. In this case, do not delay and need to quickly throw a trout line for catfish and nibble is bound to be.
