Winter bait: the intricacies of fishing
Live bait can be caught immediately before fishing. However this does not always guarantee success. It may be that the bait fish is not caught, and then leave the pond would be in vain. In a pinch, you can buy the live bait at the bait shop.
But, as a rule, predators respond better to local live bait. That’s why many anglers who do not have time to procure live bait in sufficient quantity in autumn, share zhivtsovy fishing in two stages: in one day they are going to get zhivtsov, and the second go for the predator.
1. The choice of bait
As bait you can use a variety of fish: roach, gudgeon, perch, Rotana, bleak, carp, ruffe, Rudd and eel and verhoplavku.
The size of the fish you need to find the predator, who is hunting. As a rule, in winter, live bait required for catching of a pike on the imitation fish, and for bottom fishing for perch and Zander.
In rare cases, live bait can be caught and catfish. Also a good live bait fishing for burbot, but there is often used a dead fish and pieces of fish meat.
If you know the habitat of predators in winter reservoirs, the search for live bait will not make you work. Predators always come to where the bait fish is found in abundance.
Normally, predatory fish are interested in, first of all, Malcolm’s first year. In extreme cases, it preys on fish two-year-olds. In winter the bait is kept close to the shore, but during gluhozime it goes deeper.
Also do not forget that different types of bait fish prefer different Parking lots. Those same minnows and loach often live in sandy soils. Verkhivka, plotnicki and perch holding close to the shore, in the grassy areas of the reservoir. But the ruffs, it is best to seek the depths.
The easiest way of catching live bait – with the lift. It is also called malavolta, “spider” or “umbrella”. This fixture is a fine mesh on the hangers located in a horizontal plane.
The lift is lowered to the bottom and in the center of the hook bait. Often on the lift just poured the bloodworms. On the scent animal bait gathering bait. Then malaveci raised, and the whole fry is in the mesh, folded in a bag — hence the fish can’t escape.
You need to look for is the winter version of the lift. Unlike summer models can arise, making great passes through the hole.
Some anglers are made for catching live bait special traps. Each fisherman has their own preferences in design.
The easiest way to make a trap from a five-liter bottle. It is necessary to cut the three holes: two on the sides, one on the bottom.
In each hole, excluding the neck of the main bottle, insert a funnel, cut from the necks of other bottles. These inputs need to detail could go inside. Moreover, they are necessary so that the current washed mouth-watering smell of bait out and attracted the fish.
The trap is very easy to attract the fish swims in and regales poured bait. But to get back she is no longer able. You just have to get the trap out of the water and remove the caught fish.
Usually caught in winter malyavochka enough live bait for fishing. But it so happens that the fish go to sleep early and elementary deteriorate. In this case, for the salvation of the fishing have to catch additional fish.
The easiest way is to use a thin rope with a small jig. It is especially useful for fishing large live bait: Rotanov, perch and ruffe. Them much easier to obtain by means of rods.
Where to catch these bait fish? The easiest way to do near galicnik holes. It is recommended to conduct such fishing, if the imitation fish is “silent”.
When fishing for live bait at the bait you need to follow all the rules of winter fishing. It is important to choose the right place. Often need to lure the hole. Do not forget about the true game of the jig. But the main thing here – the use of small jigs (less than 10 mm). Otherwise, you will come across a too large fish that are not suitable for the role of live bait.
6. The experience of the athlete
If you catch live bait at the bait, you can use the experience of sport fishermen. Usually, they catch small fish, as they counts the number of trapped prey. Moreover, these professionals know how to provoke the fish to bite, which is especially useful at the time of gluhozime.

Very important for sport fishing correct pointer. It is better to make independently, and then carefully set up, achieving the perfect mormyshkas games.
For catching live bait is best suited Motyl medium size. In a pinch, you can use a small moth.
7. Search fishing live bait
Keep in mind that sport fishing involves a constant search for fish. Need to drill a small hole, to lure them to fish. If the hole does not bring results, you can continue searching for fish in other parts of the reservoir.
In the study wells do transactions with different intensity and change the frequency of play. If the bite is not followed, then the hole is empty. Move on to the next.
Don’t forget to return on already obnovlennie the hole, regardless of the result, which they showed before. Supanna earlier, the bait can attract fish.
If the hole began to bring in the catch, and then biting sharply calmed down, try to sh in a neighbouring hole. It is possible that a flock of fry floating around here somewhere.
Also don’t forget, after every caught fish in the hole again pour a little bit of bloodworms. This strategy allows to attract new fish to extend the bite.
