Pike fishing in the winter spinning with ice
One of the most coveted trophies of our fishermen, without any doubt, is the pike. It is a predatory fish, actively resisting when playing, so catching her is a pleasure. And the size of the largest individuals sometimes impressive. Caught this fish in almost all water bodies of our country at any time of the year, including active in the winter.
When is the best time to fish for pike in the winter?
It has long been observed that the best toothed predator is caught in the period of fast ice, and last ice. Although to catch a pike can be in the winter, sluggish biting is observed in gluhozime, in a clear frosty days. Pike aktiviziruyutsya during winter thaws and stable in atmospheric pressure. But during pressure surges biting almost disappearing. You can catch the light at any time of the day.
Promising space for gear
It should be remembered that in the early ice pike continues to be on those parts of the river where she was before, in the fall. That is, in places where there is cover and shallow depths, the shallows, the congestion. Later, when the pond ice is fully tightened, the predator gradually moved to wintering holes and the pool, wherever leaves her prey. That is, the catch is in the pool, at the extremes of the depths, submerged in the depths of the trees, in reeds.
The location of the pike in winter is heavily dependent on weather conditions, in particular atmospheric pressure. When it is high, you should look for pike in deeper, and when reduced to a smaller depth. In deep winter, when the fish lack of oxygen, it is concentrated at beating the underwater keys, the confluence of streams.
Pike fishing in the winter spinning
Winter spinning is different from the summer especially for its size, but much smaller. This is the most common gear for catching pike in the winter. Any coil is applied, inertial and inertia-free. Standard fishing line with a diameter of preferably not more than 0.3 mm, since a thicker alarming the fish and disturbs the natural game lures. Mandatory leash, tungsten, steel or, preferably, fluorocarbonates, the color is virtually identical to fishing line. The diameter of the leash needs to be thicker than fishing line, but not to exceed 0.55 mm.
As bait used a special vertical jig, spinner tubes, balancers, silicones, . And they can be quite different, the taste of the angler. Although it should be remembered that when fishing in clear water with good transparency, it is recommended to choose a spinner with a gray top, a white abdomen and reddish fins. Brighter lures are used in turbid waters with poor visibility.
If a fishing spot there is a risk of the Circlip, that is, there are snags, preference should be given to the special lures-nezatseplyayki. Also popular baits are crankbaits, jig and vibrohvosta.
First and foremost, you should make a few holes (preferably more than ten metres in 5-7 from each other), and gradually them to sh for a long time without stopping in one place. You should put the spinner on the bottom, then raise it half a meter-meter on him, pause for a moment and dip again. Repeat this sequence several times and then change the hole. Periodically change the amplitude and frequency of vibration of a spinner (or other similar bait). Keep in mind the wells, which was the approach of the fish to subsequently return to this place.
Today, there are a huge number of all kinds of artificial baits for catching pike on spinning. It is therefore desirable to have a large selection. And not to despair if not biting, but simply to try them to experiment.
