The secrets of walleye fishing in the summer
Summer spinning fishing for perch — a rather difficult task. And get a good catch only to fishermen with experience of fishing fanged, knowledge of his habits and habitats. Effective summer trips to hunt for perch are a Testament to the skill and class angler.
Behavior of walleye in the summer
Summer time makes adjustments in the habits of the freshwater predator. He does not have a characteristic pre-spawning autumn or Jora. In the warm season the Zander lethargic and becomes active only at some time in the middle of a summer day or night.
In large rivers, reservoirs at night you can see the advanced spinning enthusiasts who are hunting for walleye. That night the greatest chance of a good catch fanged predator. Increased activity of this fish is manifest in the following periods of night time:
- directly after sunset and up to 24 hours;
- then, after a short break of about 2 hours the night begins another period of activity of the predator;
- then before dawn the perch are biting well again and this goes on until the rising of the sun and increase the ambient temperature.
Day angling summer is especially difficult with the direction of spinning fishing. Due to the scorching sun, the predator behaves sluggish, and strikes are limited to small “kicks” the lure.
The best period to catch during daylight walleye are days with cloudy and windy weather. The mass of water in rivers or reservoirs, mixed, and with a bottom, closer to the surface, rises food that attracts the fish. This causes the predator to become more active and go to the place of concentration of small fish. Having a good supply of bait in these areas poklav walleyes will be delayed.
On clear days, a certain surge of activity we can expect after the appearance on the horizon of the sun and until 10 o’clock in the morning. Then, after lunch, perch sometimes manifests itself but steady movement starts with the decrease in temperature late in the evening.
Regardless of the type of habitat fanged predator likes to hunt in areas where there is running water. Stagnant areas or areas with very slow flow he tries to avoid. The bottom should be firm and have sandy, clay, gravel or shell structure. If the bottom is sticky, covered with silt or in the area of a lot of aquatic vegetation, hunting perch in a place like this is useless.
In late August and early June, prefers to choose deep sites. The middle of the summer characterized by the fact that the perch is in the snags, holes, drop offs, a night out on the sandbank, or spit.
In the summer in large reservoirs is observed the phenomenon of the thermocline. It forces the perch to rise in the water column. Look for it in these situations is quite difficult and experienced anglers use sonar to determine the concentrations of fish.
In the summer when fishing spinning reel on the rivers of the representative of predatory fish seem promising where there are quite deep holes and sharp drop offs interspersed with sandbars and shallows. Day a strong likelihood that the depth is the walleye. At night in the summer Fang is to look at shallow depths in areas with a hard bottom.
Summer habits and preference of habitats of walleye very different from other seasons. So going on the hunt for this representative of the predatory fish fauna in the summer, we must first study its characteristic features, behavior, and favored location in the warmer period of the year.
