Fishing tackle “pokatok”. Tips on construction and use
Winter fishing, fun, with countless fan. Despite the harsh weather conditions under which to fish, crowds of fishermen go every day on fishing, pursuing one goal, to catch fish. But biting on the reservoir may not be predictable, for example, yesterday the fish was caught, and today it starts to act up. And then the fishermen begin to come up with various tooling and fixtures to cause passive fish interest in bait, and to get her to bite. These snap very simple to manufacture and they can make literally every fisherman going for ice fishing.
Efficient equipment, it can be called a tackle, called pokatok and there is the notion that anglers, to catch pokatok. This type of fishing are widely spread among fishermen and Amateurs, in many regions of our country. It can be attributed to the active fishing in the winter time, although this way you can fish and boat in the summer, in open water. For the manufacture of such gear need winter rod used for trolling predatory fish, long not less than eighty centimeters. This rod is simple inertia reel with ratchet Wound on the coil, at least fifty meters of fishing line, with a diameter of zero eighteen, zero to twenty-five millimeters to skip it in the choke ring our rods. The next thing you need to do is pick up the sinker, which must take the form of a ball and matched by weight depending on the depth and strength of the currents at the reservoir, where fishing is done. This sinker can be an ordinary sinker, with two metal eyelets used in jig fishing, the fishermen call this the sinker “Cheburashka”. Versatile the average weight of the sinkers of about fifteen grams. Taking the end of the line, emerging from crossing rings, tie him to one of our sinkers loops and the second loops tie the leash with a hook. The leash is made of twine of smaller diameter, so that when the toe, not break the entire gear. A long leash can be different, there exists a rule, the worse the bite, the longer the leash, but the minimum length should be not less than seventy centimeters. At the end of the leash, tie a hook, for attachment of a moth, or maggot, is a versatile nozzle for this tackle.
Aligning the nozzle on the hook, drop the rig down to the water until the sinker touches the bottom, then with the rod tip slightly raise the sinker and dropping a few turns of fishing line from the spool, drop the sinker back. When this maneuver sinker demolished over down a couple of meters, as if rolling along the bottom, so the tackle and was named pokatok. By doing this maneuvering, it is desirable that the snap with a sinker, distant, and drifting by on a few meters and make a pause. Then repeat your actions and let go of our gear for a few metres downstream, inadvertently tapping the bottom with a sinker, and again we have a break. This time, after a small pause, starting to do a smooth lift of the rod to the side, at arm’s length. At the time of tightening in most cases and there is a bite, but the bite may be during a pause. During the bite, feel the push of the fish, which goes from the rod in hand at this point and made a short cutting. Caught in this manner, the angler, moving around the pond, looking for a Parking fish. The angler is always in motion, so here the bait is not used.
