Winter fishing using a worm
Fishing using worm as the nozzle familiar to fishermen in the warm season. In the summer it is a universal bait, which is difficult to find a replacement. Bite on it a huge amount of fish and stay without a catch very difficult. But the worm can be used in winter. And very successfully. But many anglers don’t want to take it with you. Why? To answer this question, we find several reasons.
First, the variety of winter baits. There are so many nozzles that in the winter you can apply much more efficiently. Bloodworm and maggot only the most common ones. And rightly so. The fish are much more accustomed to seeing in the pond of these animals. They constitute the main forage base of most of these reservoirs during the winter period. Whereas conventional manure worm can cause suspicion and lead to biting.
Others vs. worm is its inaccessibility in the winter time. Most fishermen do not deal with blank bait for the winter. Why? The stores are always open and everywhere you can buy almost any nozzle. In addition to the dung worm of course.
Well, those fishing enthusiasts who thought about winter fishing in advance and have prepared ever since the fall of worms, too, have a problem. It is in storage. Need to find the right room. Not cold and not hot. You need to constantly feed on the bait. And even with all the manipulation to keep worm in the winter very difficult.
And still fishing using this bait is worth it. Not only peaceful fish, but predators are not against to eat a worm in the winter and do it with pleasure.
For proper fishing using a worm is to take a lure or normal fishing hook with long shank. Is it for easy draping.
When fishing at great depths or over should take a bigger jig. This will allow to confront the footnote tackle to the side and quickly deliver the bait to the bottom.
The game is also a little different when compared with the bait in the form of bloodworms. Movement should be more smooth, not keeping away far from the bottom. In the case of the good mobility of the worm, is to leave it on the bottom and it stir, will be to lift the cloud of sand which will attract the inhabitants of the pond.
You can use worm and trolling. Many fishermen to attract the attention of fish hang on the balancer or trolling the thread, or fishing line a bright color. But for this purpose, suitable, and manure worm. In this case, while maintaining the longer pauses between jerks, the fish will not only see but also to feel the bait and the bite will become more active.
The most effective time for fishing worm in the cold season is fishing at last ice. Fish already feels the approach of spring and is experiencing severe hunger. Melt water entering the pond, brings together a large number of worms, which are the main forage fish. So you should take care if this is bait at this time and the result will not keep itself waiting.
