Perch fishing in the winter
Perch is the fish, the activity of which has not abated all year round. He often attracts the attention of many avid fishermen. However in winter this fish is less active than in other seasons. But it almost does not reduce to it. That catch was more successful, the angler needs to carefully prepare for going fishing. For this you need to consider many factors affecting the result of fishing. These include: selection of equipment, lures, weather conditions, choice of the place where the fish will be in sufficient quantity and it will be active.
Winter time can be divided into several periods: pergolide (beginning of winter), mid-winter and late winter. At the beginning of winter on small rivers is quite a lot of small fish, which in turn attracts bass. So, first of all, you should pay attention on these places. Also, this predator loves those parts of the reservoir, where many a frozen near the shore vegetation. In the middle of winter is the coldest season of the year, so during this period the bass are trying to move as deep as possible. Therefore, after it is in those places where there are recesses. Late winter perch again trying to get to shallow water. Look for it it is best where there is a large amount of underwater debris, snags, etc.
When the approximate location of the fishing gear found, need to drill the hole. The frequency of visit should be quite high. To feed this predator is quite abundant, but abuse is also not necessary, because due to the large amount of feed the fish can not just pay attention to your bait.
As bait often use clumps of bloodworms, chopped earthworms or shrimps. If you just no biting or too small come across instances, you should not hurry to turn the gear, since the largest individuals are usually cautious at first and only then start to take the bait.
For winter fishing perch used mainly a winter bait with a long nod. Not worth chasing too thick fishing line, its maximum diameter should be chosen not more than 0.2 mm. as lures are mainly used nozzles of an animal origin, such as moths, worms, amphipods, etc. Bass are caught mostly either on a jig, or a minnow, or a balance beam.
When choosing mormyshkas should pay attention to its color and weight. Select the jig with small weight and light in color, which often attracts perch in the winter. The best attachment for the jig will be butterflies. Although when they are not, you can try to spread the worm, the maggot or the larva of a dragonfly. However, to choose the bait and the nozzle will be only half the story. It is also necessary to pay attention to the tactics of fishing. Starting to catch on a jig, you first need to lower the gear on the bottom, then lift, then dip again, etc., thereby committing the vertical oscillatory movement which is attracting the attention of a predator. You can also make more fast and sharp movements with the bait. However, after lifting the bait to do a little break.
When fishing for perch on the spinner should be chosen depending on the time of fishing: at the beginning and at the end of winter, you can tackle larger sizes, but in the middle of winter it is better to take smaller baits. Unlike the jig, the spinner need not be fully lowered to the bottom. Before him, there should be a distance approximately equal to the length of the spinner or a little more. To raise the gear should be slightly shaking it. In the end, again, we must pause, then lower the spinner and repeat the process again.
In addition to fishing with a jig and a minnow, a perch caught on the balancer, which is an artificial fish with hooks and a tee. The weight of this bait should be chosen depending on the depth of the reservoir: the deeper the bait needs to be heavier. When fishing for perch usually choose rocker length is no more than 5 cm colors are best to choose the place of fishing, because the predator can pay attention to bright colors and dark. When fishing on the balancer should be lowered to the bottom, then a sharp movement to throw at a distance of about 0.5 meter from him. Due to this, rising from the bottom of the dregs, which attracts fish. During the game must pause. On the bottom the bait can be lowered as quickly and slowly.
