Fishing for Dace, bait, tackle
This brisk and frisky fish love oxygenated clean, cold water. In open, straightforward, shallow areas it is almost nonexistent, preferring small omucki and Padmini under the shore, which are abundant in the winding shallow river.
The basis of the diet of Dace are the caddis worm, various small crustaceans, insects. Elec is extremely picky about tips: in early spring it can be easily caught with worms, but on the ground, for example, is much worse than podistica or dung. In the beginning of the summer goes well for caddis, mid-and late summer, sometimes prefers the grasshopper. Hind legs, the grasshopper is usually off, then elec boldly takes the bait.
Dace — fish schooling, is held by groups of 20-30 individuals, however, sometimes gather together more than a hundred fish. Interesting to see how a large flock of scared someone above the river, begins to slide down. In the shallows, where the water is ankle-deep, is a bunch of noise from the run. Overcoming small places, elec drives in front of the water, and forms a wedge-shaped furrow.
Such furrows could from afar to track fish shoals by the river. If unnoticed, to come closer, we can see that the head of the pack are always a few large individuals is intelligence. When on their way there is an insurmountable obstacle or danger they are in for a few seconds examined the situation, turned around (they obviously don’t like) and walk away from dangerous places. The whole pack is in exactly the same maneuver more experienced colleagues.
Dace is very sensitive, so catch more than three or four fish from one place rarely. Typically, after catching a couple of fish, a flock of guards, and no matter how appealing the bait, Dace takes it warily, and even refuses to bite. In this case it is better to change the place of fishing, moving upstream. On the deep flat areas of the river and amudah fish can rest on the bottom or in the middle layers of water.
Catch the Dace light float tackle, fishing rod length is about 3 meter long, difficult, and sometimes impossible to fish because of overhanging trees and bushes. The diameter of the main line — 0.2 mm, leash — 0.15 mm, hook № 2,5-3,5 at the domestic numbering. Interesting way of fishing with a sinking lure. The float is removed, on the line to leave only a hook and a sinker weight of about 0.2 g. the fishing Line when casting parasit (requires a certain skill that ultralight gear), but there is no noise from the falling water of the float and additional loads. Such is not a clever tackle. Even Dace can be caught spinning.
This is a very exciting activity that will bring real pleasure, because the angler is in direct visual contact with the object of hunting. Everything happens in front: the lure slowly sinks to the bottom, a bright yellow abdomen of the grasshopper is clearly visible in the clear water. A faint shadow of the elec approaching the bait, a couple of seconds, hesitates, and then swallows firmly the nozzle. As soon as the grasshopper disappears from view, there is a quick cutting, and the fish on the hook.
Tactics and fishing technique
Failure to comply with elementary rules of secretive behavior in the reservoir may leave careless angler with a minimum catch. Dace is very sensitive to various knocks, snapping of twigs, the sound of crumbling earth. For successful fishing need to use the existing nearby natural cover: trees, tall grass, the ledges of the shore.
In relatively deep areas with high, steep Bank applies this tactic of fishing: the angler is not at the edge of the shore and a bit further, so that the main part of the body was hidden behind the coastal escarpment. The fish sees only the head and a small part of the torso of the fisherman. Seeing the man, big Dace may not refuse offered food. At best he will be extremely suspicious to pull the hook with bait, not swallowing it completely; float finely trembling and the moment of hooking to define extremely difficult.
