Winter fishing. Drilling holes
In order to correctly make the hole for winter fishing, it is first necessary to acquire the basic devices. The main one – the drill that can be of different diameter, and can carry other differences. Also, you might want the Icepick and important subject – skimmer (ladle), for pulling out of the water icicles.
The main form of winter holes are round, but sometimes a successfully do a branch or extension of irregular shape for ease of catching and pulling out large fish. If you catch a pike, then it is the bottom of the hole to cut, so a predator with a circular resistance did not break the line on the sharp edge of the lower part of the hole.
When drilling the first hole, you should count the number of revolutions of the drill to the final completion and release it into the water. This knowledge of ice thickness will help in the future, when drilling subsequent holes. The next hole is no longer necessary to drill to the end (not to bring the drill a few turns), pull the drill turning it in the opposite direction and pulled out, collect chips of ice with a ladle or skimmer and put them in one pile. Shards of ice shouldn’t leave around the hole, as then they will be highly crunching under his feet, thereby scaring off the fish in the area. The next action you need to coverlet to the end of the hole and be careful when pulling the drill. It is not necessary with the power snatch, and felt that he went out into the water, slowly twist it in the opposite direction. Then pulling the drill shards of ice, cleaned up the floating sludge from the wells with a slotted spoon. Bur then purified from the might of the stuck ice and not throw it in the snow, and upright fasten a few turns to ice. If you drill a hole in shallow water, be careful not to drive the corer into the bottom of the reservoir. If this happens, you may need to sharpen knives, drill, or worse – change them. In the finished hole can be left a little ice crumbs so that they shaded the opening and thereby masking it. Some fishermen use tricks to hole from freezing. They pour a thin layer of oil (any food) or grease them with fishing line in contact with water.
If you drill a double hole, their drilling needs, not overleva every while will remain to the water a few inches. Then take out the drill, clean the groove and reveal the remaining the ice in them brown. This type of holes used in fishing to catch big fish that could go in a dual hole.
Here are the basic principles of drilling holes with the drill. Well, which drill to choose, talk about it in another article. Successful winter fishing!
