Winter fishing. Bait fish
Fed pond always efficient because of the constant presence of fish, which attracts bait and that gets used and prefer such parts of lakes and rivers. Some anglers are constantly and specifically lure certain places in the pond where fishing. This allows them to almost always be with the catch, regardless of the various factors influencing the biting fish. In winter the bait is also important for the fish to feed. So what is bait and how to lure fish?
Bait is a mixture that is suitable for the supply of a certain fish in the pond. Bait usually sinks to the bottom, apply in water in a particular area of the reservoir, and thereby attracts and holds the fish in this place, or nearby. Bait is purchased, or it can be done independently, using different ingredients.
Domestic and foreign industry produces a lot of different baits ready to fish. They differ in grain size and composition. Coarse bait is used more for larger fish. Fine for smaller. The composition of the groundbait is characterized by the presence in it of ingredients and flavors that are like one or another fish. The packaging is usually specified for what type of fish it is intended. The finished bait can be applied in pure form, just spreading it with water to the desired consistency. And can be combined with various fillers, thereby increasing the volume of the resulting finished mixture and altering its properties and taste.
The finished bait is diluted with water to the desired consistency. Then you can take it with you to the pond and feed the fish. Usually to deliver the bait to the bottom using a special feeder. They are a jar with holes and a hinged bottom. The hinged bottom has a special foot, which is released with a sharp jerk of the thread for which the feeder is attached, and where it sinks to the bottom of the reservoir. Purchase feeders are often made in the form of a cone. They come in metal and plastic. Metal is preferred due to the fact that they themselves are heavy and sink to the bottom under its own weight. Plastic feeders are sometimes on the bottom built-in load. Otherwise, let them drop to the bottom would be problematic. Plastic feeders that don’t have the goods, the fishermen themselves modify — put cargo independently. Or cargo is attached separately on the thread, which is tied to the feeder. The goods and convenient to use with a metal trough, especially for larger depths. The feeder with the bait sinks to the bottom. Then sharply pull the thread to which it is bound, the mechanism releases the bottom cover, and bait is poured on the bottom of the reservoir. Then the trough rises back and again filled with bait. The whole process is repeated. Thus, the feed hole, where you will be fishing. Sometimes anglers drill a few holes and fed them all. Thus, it is possible to increase the area of the reservoir, which will involve a fish. And also to be able to go from hole to hole and look for a place where the fish will bite the best. Some anglers regularly feed certain areas of the reservoir. Thus, they prepare in advance a place where most likely to be fish. Not to look for it and not to waste time and effort.
You can use the groundbait without the use of feeders. For example, you can make small balls of the prepared mixture. And these balls to throw into the hole. In order for the balls of bait better was drowning and was sinking, in a ready mix to add regular sand. Or the balls to invest small stones, which is prepared in advance specifically for such purposes. You can just throw the mixture into the hole, but then it will disperse in the water before reaching the bottom. So it is possible to do at shallow depths up to 2 meters. On larger depths it is desirable to take measures so that the bait was delivered exactly on the bottom. The fish are mainly kept and fed at the bottom. And the bait it is better to spread there.
To purchase bait, you can add ordinary sand to weight ready mix. You can also add various cereals, bread, breadcrumbs and other ingredients. This will allow you to change and improve the palatability of the bait. In addition, these supplements increase the amount of the prepared mixture. That will save on the purchase of the number of packets of bait, and get one pack a greater amount of ready mix. In ready-mix you can add cereals: oat, barley, buckwheat, corn, oat, wheat. Porridge is usually boiled, and add to itself grains and cereals. But sometimes add cooked and cooked porridge. You can also add regular white bread, sunflower seeds, milk, ground peas. And some anglers like to add to the groundbait with chopped worms and bloodworms. All the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Then, the resulting mixture pour water, stir, and bring to desired consistency. Ready mix you can pour water directly on the pond. Sometimes it is even recommended, so the water was not water, namely from the pond, which is supposed to use the bait.
Homemade bait different from, that prepared from readily available ingredients. The ingredients are the same, which added to the prepared purchase bait, what was written above. Here are some examples of cooking homemade mixes for bait:
- does white bread, crushed, mixed with cereal fines. Added sunflower seeds, all milled in a coffee grinder. Adds a little bit of normal river sand and stirred again briefly. The mixture is ready;
- the peas, and added ground sunflower seeds, millet cereal and crushed breadcrumbs. Add sand, or soil. And mix everything. The mixture is ready;
- maize grits cook porridge, add the ground sunflower seeds, sand, or earth. Give porridge to cool. Add a little chopped worms, or bloodworms. Mix everything. Bait ready.
There are ingredients that always like fish and you can add almost any mix. Such as sunflower seeds, or meal. Also worms and bloodworms are always desirable and attractive to fish. And there are special flavors that you can lightly season received a feeding mixture and that is pretty good to attract fish.
Fishing with bait is always more successful. And if the angler regularly lure certain places of the pond, he can count on a good fishing almost any time. Well, maybe with rare exceptions. So use the bait for fishing. It will help the angler to attract fish to the holes. That will make the fishing good and do not stay without a catch.
