Snap-split-shot — installation and features of fishing
As it turned out, invented in America snap-split-shot, designed specifically for catching bass, works well when hunting familiar to us predators — pike, perch, especially perch. One of the advantages of split-shots is that it can be used in shallow areas of reservoirs. In addition, the separated snap-in, which include split-shot, allow the artificial bait to move in the water more freely, which is not always possible to obtain from conventional jig heads or hinge Assembly.
Split-shot is considered to be one of the most simple outfits. For its production will need a round sinker and hook. Sinker movably fixed on the main fishing line, the end of which is tied the hook. You can use leashes, but many anglers give them up as extra components installation (karabinchika or wartlike) can spoil the game of bait. If, nevertheless, the use of a leash is justified (in particular, when fishing passive fish) then you can use the shipment of two ears to one attached end of the primary fishing line, to the other — the leash with the bait.
The advantages of split-shots on other snap-ins:
- gruzinam thanks to small weight, you can sh in the different layers of water;
- when posting on the bottom of the split-shot allows you to play bait, not only during its movement, but in one place;
- ease of fabrication;
Since the split-shot refers to a spinning snap-ins, then the rod must be exactly the same as is used in fishing with classic jig — fast action, high test ranges with length not less than 2.1 m When fishing for small perch will fit and ultralajtovogo tackle, which is better to use for hunting medium or large predators — pike and perch. To the coil there should be only two requirements — reliability and quality isolatory mechanism. Hooks offset, single or “twin” of small size. The leash is usually made of monolescu, as it is due to its flexibility and softness does not interfere with the play of the lure. But if the bottom is covered with stones or shells, it is better to use fluorocarbon. It has high mileage, but besides this and a smaller elongation. Round weights (normal or “eared”) must not be heavier than 5 grams. Heavier weights make sensitive split-shot is useless in a snap, devoid of their original purpose — to provoke the bite lazy and inactive predator.
The best artificial bait used with snap-split-shot — it silicone up to 5 cm in length. If the predator is active, and baits you should use with movable elements — twisters and vibrohvost. Passive predator can entice slugs, crayfish, worms, etc. the Color and shape of the lure does not matter, so as to predict the preferences of fish at the moment would be impossible. Better to start from common principles, in clear water use natural bait colors in murky or cloudy weather — bright and even acid.
Since the split-shot is used when fishing in areas with small depths, and the tactics of its use should be appropriate — casts in the neighborhood of vegetation, the harvest of the coastal edge, the wiring along the reeds. Split-shot — universal snap-in, which allows you to use a variety of Postings:
- jig step;
- posting in the water column at different depths;
- speed wiring with pauses of different length.
On the transaction selection is influenced by such factors as temperature and activity of the predator. The warmer the water, the faster must be the wiring. If the predator is passive and refuses to bite, to provoke him can slow retrieve with long pauses, during which the tip of the rod may be flexing the bait, moving their it from side to side.
