How to catch perch
Perch is one of the most common and voracious predators. This fish schooling. Eyes with an orange iris and a large dark pupil. Along the body is located 5-9 transverse dark bands. The rear and ventral, and tail fins are bright red, the pectoral fins are also yellow. Dorsal fin with a black spot at the tip, with several sharp rays.
There are two types of perch: small — slow-growing, known as “the herbal” perch, for the third year of life it reaches a weight of 25-30 grams, but is able to spawn. Maximum weight rarely exceeds 60 grams. This bass has a darker color and leads, as a rule, schooling life; large, deep-growing perch can weigh up to 1.5-2 kg.
Spawning occurs at a temperature of about 8 degrees in the flood.
The best bite times are April, may, immediately after spawning the bass comes zhor, i.e. intensive feeding. It feeds mainly in the daytime. More intense bite in the morning. It happens that medium and small groupers actively pecking all day. Eagerly grabs the bait and at the end of the summer, when it hunts for grown fry.
Favorite food of the young perch crustaceans, other fish eggs, fry, bloodworms. A favorite bait of big and medium bass — leech, caddis worm, fish, biting well on worm and maggots, eager to take fish-eye, and most artificial lures.
For perch fit all traditional gear: bottom and float rod as well as spinning. Float rod may be begoca and deaf, the line from 0,2 to 0,4 mm, hooks is recommended to apply 5 to 10. Floats, as a rule, use of foam of cylindrical shape. In angling in still water bait fish cling to the back, and for better for lips. If it takes a long time to check the status of live bait. On the float rod caught both from a boat and from the shore.
The spring perch season kicks off with the flowering of the rose. As honeypots do not use large crankbaits, twisters and vibrohvost. Spinners three, five centimetre only rotating, depending on the weather or silvery yellow petals. When fishing float rod with a blank snap-in will fit any rod is able to simply throw the bait to bite.
The spring perch is close to the shore underwater obstacles; the edge, cliffs, snags are usually found at a distance of 10-15 m from it, so throwing bait at a greater distance sense special has no. Here you need to know that the spring perch is fed from the bottom. Regardless of the terrain, presence of vegetation on the bottom, kind of used bait, and other factors, the number of groupers caught in the carts and above, so small that they should, in General, be neglected. Often in the spring activity of perch accompanied by surface the game is obviously the perch chasing the fry, creating the so-called boilers, driving the fry closer to the surface. But as they say, plays a perch on top and take the bottom!
By the early summer heat perch are dispersed throughout the pond, they hunt small 5 — 10 individuals of the groups. Off the coast hiding in the grass, there are small species. Then fishing will go a medium-sized wobblers and turntables. Big perch will have to look for in a boat. Promising sites will be snags, Islands of vegetation, the bands of algae. If the bass is passive, it will help the snap-in “dropshot” a passive soft bait. Its advantage is that it is like it freezes in the water column. And that’s a long fall should provoke perch to bite. These types of snap should be primitive to play in one place.
The search for perch in the fall suggest to start with the places where the depths are sharp drops, in cluttered areas, whirlpools, and even along the coastal vegetation. In calm and clear days the bass out of the shallows and chasing fry in there, which in all directions run from the predator on the surface of the water. The main lure for fall fishing: twisters, vibrohvosta, baitfish, worm, and maggot. On unfamiliar waters the perch should look oblasova more space, and using different bait. When weak Kleve is well-known slow retrieve lures at the bottom.
Not biting early in the morning does not mean that it will not at all. Therefore it is necessary to withstand at least before lunch.
Winter perch fishing is probably the most common type of winter fishing. In winter, this predator varies considerably forage base. Winter perch will likely prefer to eat larvae, insects, small crustaceans, bloodworms and fry. To fit almost any fishing ponds. Of course, during gluhozime activity of the fish decreases, and the perch fishing is less effective here and should show your fishing talent and to demonstrate acquired skills.
