Rockfishing on the Black sea
This fishing is similar to fishing in a plumb, but very different from other ways of relaxation with a fishing rod in his hands at risk. It’s no stretch to call extreme — for example, according to Coast guard rescue Australia, until July 2009 was recorded 94 cases of death of fans rockfishing…
Another thing — rockfishing game. It’s not fly fishing from the rocks or other slippery shore piles, aldaweesh powerful waves and spinning fishing of fish living among the stones. The pioneers of this fishing are considered to be Japanese and popular it has become recently.
A few years ago and objects to rockfishing game could become all kinds of small fish that can be caught in the coastal zone. But every year there is more and more narrow specialization. So there was a division into light and heavy rock — light and hard rockfishinggame. There are terms mebaring, aging… Why do we have to-to know? Then that gear is now available with a narrower focus.
A seaside holiday with a spinning rod in his hands attracts more and more residents are surrounded by seas countries. It is not spared craze and Russia. And if ten years ago in Krasnodar Krai nobody neither sleep nor spirit did not know what was in the Black sea can be caught by spinning on artificial baits, they are now used in full, and varied.
Tackle for rockfishing
Spinning rods. To start with Leki (light) or ultralight (ultralight) spinning, and when you like it, need to get specialized gear.
Classic spinning rockfishing game in Russia twofold a length of 2.1-2.8 m, with the upper test 7-8 g, with a thick butt and a thin delicate tip that is usually pasted in the form. A flexible, responsive tip allows you to efficiently animate the bait and to determine the bite, and a thick butt helps to draw out while hiding in the rocks fish.
Manufacturers of tents will provide in the Luxury — UFM and DAIWA, very high quality fishing rod to produce VARIVAS and SALMO, budget — GRAPHITLEADER (Calzante) and MAJOR CRAFT (Crossstage) and very inexpensive — PROX.
The apex are divided into two types: hollow (Tubular, marked with T) and solid (Solid, marked with S) — you need to know to make the most efficient use of spinning with lures of the specific types. The top T are better suited for fishing lures a S for micro jig.
When fishing from the pier, when long-range casting is not required, you can use a short “odnochastny”, which in our country is unjustly deprived of attention of the majority of the fans spinning.
For snap-ins with the drain lead and with splitdata it is better to catch 6олее long spinning rods (2.4 to 3 m), and for dropshot — spinning with a big test (to 28 d), so it was comfortable to keep the lure in the desired horizon in the same place.
I’ve been caught with dropshot on spinning PONTOON 21 Detonada test 5-21 g and DAIWA Phantom with the test 7-28 Significant ogruzka especially necessary when strong surf the wave, when the lungs are “the Tyrolean stick” brings to the surface. However, there is a downside — requires more thick “braid”, which increases the windage of the rigging.
There are spinners that can be called universal — can be attributed to them MATAGI Ajax test 1-3 g and VARIVAS Violente for night orange Rangers series marked VLL-77F-T (this is the rod I now use as their main working tool — it allows me to comfortably catch and light lures and “Texas” snap, “Caroline”, and drop shot).
Coil. In my opinion, to coils for the black sea rockfishing no special requirements (giant trevallies we have, unfortunately, not found…). The dimensions of the coils — the usual. Products of which manufacturers to choose? At the discretion of the angler. Personally I am a fan of DAIWA.
We just need to remember that sea water is a very aggressive environment, and it is desirable that the coil material was quite stable. After a series of trips required to service, disassemble and grease the reel.
Cords and leashes. Breaking load of cords should correspond to the tests on the line indicated on the forms spinning. In my opinion, it is better to use the “twist” marked RE. Personal preference — a series of Light Games from VARIVAS.
When fishing on the sea, among the sharp stones, it is recommended to use a leash fluorocarbon. This material has high abrasive resistance and less frayed on sharp rocks. The number of bites on the leash is not affected, but the continuity of the lure when fishing without a leash happen much more often.
The thickness of fluorocarbon for lures and micro jig — 0,2-0,24 mm, drop-shots — 0,3-0,4 mm. I personally prefer fluorocarbon from YAMATOYO Famell.
Crankbaits. The sea used mainly crank length 35-50 mm with a big blade, marked with the letters MDR or DR. The transaction is carried out in the vicinity of the bottom, with periodic on it when you swipe your spatula.
Coloring matters. The main food supply of the inhabitants of the underwater rocks and grottoes, crab and shrimp, this is due to the color preferences of the predators. Work better in dark colors — brown, dark red, dark blue.
No need to create a special collection of lures for the rock, enough for 3-4 models. In Krasnodar Krai the most popular PONTOON 21 Нурnoze MDR, DAIWA Bass Hunter and ACKALL Cherry 48.
Get ready for the hook. If this happened, move to a 10-15 m to the side and try to free the bait. In half of the cases, Wobbler manages to unhook. Not work? Then you decide to bring a tribute to Neptune or to swim.
Silicone bait. They are suitable for all types, but others work better faux shrimp, crabs and other “krakozyabry” length of 1 to 3 inches (2,54-7,62 cm) in dark shades of brown, dark blue, dark swamp. Glittery inclusions are welcome.
Very good results show an “edible” silicon lures, marked with UV — it means that in their manufacture added paint, glow in ultraviolet rays. Do not confuse them with glow in the dark “rubber”, from which a large wing is not seen. Our “rock phishers” emphasize production companies YUM, RELAX, BERKLEY, RAPALA.
I prefer silicone RAPALA Bug Ants and Rock Clow with a length of 2-3 inches (5.08-7.62 cm), MARUKYU Mini Tank 1 inch (2.54 cm) and Power Isomy length 8 and 10 cm, and also the bait from the Ecogearaqua — Aqua Aqua Stright and Shirasu.
Day great catch bait BERKLEY series GULP and MARUKYU Power Isomv. From “silicones” BERKLEY is recommended to cut a thin strip of a thickness not exceeding 0.5 cm and length of 2.5 cm For Power homy, this procedure is not required.
Jig head. You can use regular lead micro jig head weight 1-3 g with hook number 6, and can be more expensive, are produced by firms that specialize in sea fishing and RAPALA HAYABUSA. However, it should be avenged that the head from JAXON due to its shape less likely to fall into the “blind” hooks, but they cost 5 times more than usual. Practice shows that the loss is inversely proportional to price. But with expensive heads we save silicone bait, not to mention the time that you have to spend on tying the leashes.
Some anglers use a peculiar variant of split-shots, catching the usual sinker “BB” on fluorocarbonates the leash directly in front of the hook or even on the shank of the hook before the ring.
Hooks. When fishing with drop-shot, you can use special hooks, but the hooks for split-shots, and the usual round of “avseniki”. The main thing is to tie the hook to “back” down, otherwise it will be idle for the fish to bite. For “Texas” snap and drop the leash used round “avseniki” or regular hooks with a long forearm №6-8.
Sinkers. For drop-shots and snap-ins with drain leash it is better to use “the Tyrolean stick”, which stand vertically in the water, it reduces the likelihood of snags. “The Tyrolean stick” can be made using heat shrink tubing, swivel and lead sinkers.
The attractants. Catching on “edible” rubber soaked in “broth” of the attractant, I noticed that the longer you use the bait, the less active nibble at it, but if again to lower it for 2-3 seconds in the “broth” biting starts again. Repeating the experiment several times — and all with the same results. From this we can conclude that smell is important.
The time and place of fishing
Place for fishing find external signs. Well, when there are large rocks on the shore (especially if they sit on them crabs), rocky bottom, preferably with large boulders that form caves and grottos that serve as a natural shelter bottom-dwelling fish. You can eve fishing to snorkeling and checking if there are fish. If you can look at the sea from the steep Bank — lovely: the top is easier to see the irregularities of the seabed and the presence of algae, another natural shelter for the fish.
Having defined the place, choose the time. Do not rush out and get up with the sun — you can spend the day with family” and in the evening to go to the sea, towards the red from the warm southern sunshine holidaymakers. It is best to come to shore to 20-21 hours. Before sunset to successfully catch fish such as carp, Roulin, bull. They have a relatively small mouth that specifies the requirements for gear and baits — their length should not exceed 1-2 inches. Use small hooks №8-10.
The sun aktiviziruyutsya largemouth marine life. On the coast there is a concept — a reel, it means that on the beach roll smooth waves. This is usually in the second or third day after the storm. Night when it recovers very often skorpena, and Croaker caught in the 1-2 m from the shore, almost in the foam produced by the breaking waves on the beach.
The animation of lures and snap-ins
Crankbaits. After casting make a few long strong sudden rotation of the coil to bury the bait, then lead her by touching the bottom blade. The perfect transaction is when the Wobbler is very close to the bottom, and the number of chircani on the bottom is minimal. It is better to workout in the daytime, on smooth pebble bottom. I’m sure you’ll quickly see what’s what and learn the technique of transaction.
Drop-shot. After the sinker touches the bottom podnachivaet free “braid” and lightly pull it so not to move the sinker and the tip of the spinning rod while slightly bent. Springing movements of different amplitude and intensity, depending on fishing activity, use the Twister, causing it to play in different horizons of the water. You can occasionally pause in 2-3 seconds. The amplitude of movement of the tip of the spinning — 1 to 50 cm After the “treatment” portion of the bottom in place slowly do 1-2 turn coil, dragging the sinker along the bottom. There are no “steps”!
Micro jig, “Texas” and “Caroline” snap-in. Fishing technique close. Basic wiring — flexing tip spinning with drawing bait on the bottom and its periodic transfer in the bottom layer. Sometimes, especially in the daytime, it is useful to employ a very aggressive animation: sharp intense jerking the tip of the spinning amplitude of about half a meter or more (3-4 snatch), pause 1-2 seconds. Strike! And unknown until the fish struggling in the hook…
What kind of fish you catch in the Black sea?
Now is the time to meet with potential trophies. In the Black sea — about a hundred types. Will focus on the most commonly caught rock phishing, the most powerful, beautiful and “sports” — that is, those with which to compete is a real pleasure.
Skorpena (Scorpaena porcus), also called the sea ruff — owner of a huge mouth and sharp, moderately poisonous thorns. This is the most common trophy angler, is found everywhere. The bite usually powerful, sharp blow. When playing resists bending spinning in an arc, but don’t make any sudden movements.
Black sea Croaker (Sciaena umbra) is found on a lot more often than his white counterpart, which is listed in the Red books, and which necessarily should be let go. Croaker is a worthy contender. Honestly, most of the “Rochereau” come to the beach in hopes of catching this fish. The bite looks like a powerful series of short jerks followed by a powerful surge in deep. If the fish weighs more than 1kg, be sure that the impression will get strong, and the clutch will please you with its screech. It happens, and plus that screeching this ends with a margin of “braids” on the spool.
Comber (Serranus scriba) is perhaps the most beautiful and, unfortunately, a rare inhabitant of the Black sea. To catch him — a great success. When you bite behaves the same as its freshwater counterpart.
Redfin, or Lasker (Diplodus annularis), bite boldly and confidently. His mouth full of flat teeth. Resists powerfully, constantly making sharp, methodical jerks in depth.
Zelenukha (Symphodus tinea), or Roulin. This is a very beautiful fish, caught in the afternoon, solely on the lure of small size. The bite of a sharp, jerking to the side. When playing vigorously and resist strongly.
Smarita (Spicara smaris). It is interesting in that it is not easy to catch on artificial lures, as this fish feeds primarily on worms and other invertebrates. No wonder it often comes in “worms” some Power.
Steer travenick, or green goby (Gobius ophiocephalus) refers to the less mobile fish are usually spawning, feeding and wintering in the same thickets, mostly eelgrass. Its food consists of crustaceans, small fish, molluscs. Food habits vary with season. Like other gobies, is a common object of Amateur fishery.
Sea fishing to catching some fish should be treated with great caution.
First of all it concerns the sea dragon. It comes not often, but if bite, to get rid of it necessary, observing all precautions. He has a long, narrow body, something he looks like a bull. If you prick poisonous spines of its first dorsal fin, a sharp pain will increase and will reach in half an hour maximum. The injection site is red, swollen, appear headache, sweating, fever, disturbed breathing, pain in the heart area. It may end very sad, so the victim must immediately be taken to the clinic.
With scorpenes need to be handled with caution. But her spikes, though considered poisonous, suffering from them more than from burning nettles or a bee sting.
When injection is observed burning sensation and numbness extending within the hour. However, to experience this thrill, you simply touch the tips of the fins scorpionfish. It is better to take in hands and to remove the hook, keeping the thumb over the lower jaw.
Now you are warned, and thus armed. And, hopefully, interested. Next time, meeting at the Black sea, find in the Luggage of choice for spinning and you will get unforgettable impressions from sea fishing.
