Where to look for winter bass
For anybody not a secret that perch is the most common predator of our waters, and is found everywhere. He actively responds to almost all of the proposed bait, and bite throughout the calendar year. And cold don’t scare me. The ice fishing enthusiasts say that there is nothing more fascinating and interesting than the winter fishing perches.
Search winter predator depending on its features
As already mentioned, the perch are active all year, but still, winter has a certain effect on his behavior. Before you go in search catchability places, check out the behavior of the predator throughout the winter period.
Best time for perch comes with the beginning of freeze-up and peak fishing activity occurs in about a week and continues for 10-20 days. Predator “grazing” near the shore, deep water attracts him completely. A significant decrease of air temperature (hence, water), impact on fish organism, making it inactive and lethargic.
Large concentrations of perch break up into small groups consisting of several individuals, and spread over the entire area, so fisherman will have to examine the whole pond looking for prospective places.
If the ambient temperature falls below minus 15 °C and atmospheric background stable, the best bite river perch observed in the morning. In the evening, on the contrary, the fish to bite would be very weak. At this time, the predator hiding in the bottom pits and whirlpools.
If the frost is not very strong, Humpbacks should look at the brows, in the old river beds, shallow water and the tops of gullies. Also predators like snag designated reservoirs with a hard bottom. Sometimes the bites occur near to water vegetation, where fish ambush the fry. At the same time, to start searching for the perch should be in the direction from shore to the depth, as for the “sailor” often come the Humpbacks.
Comes gluhozime, now perches flock to follow winter Parking. Fish is practically not depart from their wintering grounds across the waters are not moved. They also prefer snags, natural pits, tables.
In January often observed such picture: one about the steep shores are trophy fish, and in coastal thickets of the opposite shore, splashing the “sailor”. But, anyway, try to sh in the entire lake. It is noticed that ninety percent of a hundred “striped” to look for around the bottom.
Some fishermen find concentration of fish, intentionally trying to pull her to the edge of the ice, using a high-speed wiring.
And in General, in gluhozime catching perch pretty hard. The fisherman will have to drill sufficient number of holes, and each of them meticulously to sh for a long time. But to cheat the holes on thick ice – occupation difficult. And, in addition, the January fish are not very active, which means that it longer need to stir, tempting to take the delicious bait.
Winter ends, fishermen go to fish at last ice. This period is characterized by increasing activity of perch. Now they are caught in the surface layers of water where they rise to hunt for grazing there “small things” and get yourself a new batch of oxygen.
