Fishing for tench. Habitat, bait, tackle
Lin – very interesting, strong, clever and cautious fish, to catch which the fishermen have to show a lot of endurance and patience. In addition, for successful catching tench you should be able to properly prepare the bait, pick up gear and to choose the place of fishing.
The fishing place
The tench inhabits practically all freshwater bodies. Do not look for Lin to snag parts of the reservoir. He is attracted to dense thickets of reeds, water lilies and sedges. When fishing in such places is usually very difficult to avoid the numerous snags. Very often the angler is required to find not only the fishery but also to make it more comfortable for fishing, clearing of vegetation. Clean a small area of bottom of aquatic vegetation is possible using the rake or a special “cat”, which is easy to manufacture of conventional electrodes.
Bait and bait
Most fishermen know that fish Lin is very picky. It is therefore very important to prepare the bait. As the basis of bait you can use ready mix bait used when fishing for carp and crucian carp. The mixture is poured into a bucket and add dry clay, carefully all mixing. Clay added to light “carpet” of bait stood out against the dark muddy or peaty bottom, attracting fish. The number of bait mixtures and clay should be approximately equal. Then add canned corn, pre-soaked flavors. The main ingredients of the mixture are finely chopped worms and live maggots. Now add water, which is taken directly from the pond on which you plan to fish. Wet bait should be so as she was quite wet and sticky. From the prepared mixture to form balls. When falling to the bottom of these balls should be scattered, forming a kind of “feed field” for Lin. A fishing line to your bait often add curd (not too sour), ground nuts, boiled hemp seeds and fish meal.
There is another kind of bait that will help to bring Lin to the fishing spot. With a knife cut a small piece of turf which is then placed in a bucket. On top of the turf poured worms (big enough number). In about twenty minutes-thirty, when the worms hide inside the cut piece of turf, throw it neatly in a prospective place of fishing. There is no doubt that this delicacy will not leave Lin indifferent.
The best bait for tench are worms and maggots. To catch large tench, ideal for Nightcrawlers. Pretty good Ling bite on boilies and corn.
The most successful catch tench float rod and a feeder. The rod must be light and durable (the rod length is three to four meters). Main line – 0.3 mm, leash – 0.18 mm. The length of the leash, as a rule, should not exceed twenty centimeters. Hook – №9-10.
When fishing for tench float rod, use a very sensitive floats with one attachment point. A float fixed to the main fishing line two small stoppers, will not catch on the grass when you bite Lin. In addition, when fishing for tench in the dark hours, when almost nothing can be seen, the tip of the float can be equipped with special “Firefly”. Through this “Firefly” Fisher will not miss the long-awaited moment of take Lin.
