Winter perch fishing: the combination gerliche fishing and trolling
One of the most popular types of fishing in winter perch fishing from the ice. To find this fish at depth is very difficult. Will have to look for underwater edge, drilling a lot of holes. Some people prefer long and tedious to sh in one hole until it will not fit the Humpbacks, and others are actively looking for perches pack. Winter bass are much more active than commonly believed. He did not sit in the pits, and sluggishly moves along the edge in search of food.
Useful to years of experience
Look for perch in the winter is not too difficult. Everything is much easier, given that the place of the perch bite in summer and winter is about the same. Therefore, in winter, can be very useful years of experience. If you keep a journal of fishing and write there information about all catchability places where pecked perch in the summer, then you will be able to catch it in the winter.
How does perch in the winter? In fact, it is the same as the summer moves along the edge. He especially loves the parts of the reservoir with the sudden change in depth.
In addition, even in the winter perches are favored. Moreover, the sizes of these swarms much more than in the summer. In one such bunch can be up to several dozen perch. So, when skilful approach to great catches will be easy. Note that throughout the activity edge perch is not uniform. Usually on any edge there are areas where perch bite readily and often. Exactly they should start the winter looking for fish.
Trolling and fishing garlicka
As a rule, in winter, fishing for big fish using two fishing tactics: girlicious fishing and jigging. This combined method is used by many experienced anglers. Method downright brilliant.
Imitation fish for this fishing are the main method of fishing. They only help to identify the location of the pack. And when you determine where the perch, you can start vertical jigging. But about all under the order.
Of the measurement accuracy
To use this tactic, you have to know in advance the location of edge and depth in this area. So you have only two choices: either to become familiar with the brow in the summer when it can be reached by boat, or buy a good sounder and carefully to fathom the depth of winter ice.
Accuracy here is very important because Gorlickie the hole needs to be drilled in a specific pattern. But if you do it right, you will find a good catch.
Remember to implement all the recommendations alone is very time consuming: it will take a lot of time cooking. So to go to this fishing it is necessary a big company. Joint efforts you will quickly drill desired number of holes and can react on the perches bite.
Do I need any holes
First need to drill a hole under the imitation fish and place them right along the edge. The distance between these holes should be about 20-40 m.
In addition garlicky holes you need to drill holes for lures and balancers. These additional holes are not necessary to do above the brow, and 3-5 m on the side of her. Then garlicky holes will go exactly along the edge, and balance – wavy lines along the edge.
This is a very important point. As shown by observation of experienced anglers, in winter, the perch does not move in a straight line. He usually swims a zig-zag, wavy trajectory. And if trolling is the main method of fishing, and the hole needs to be positioned exactly.
With the design of Gerlich wise is not necessary. You can use the same imitation fish, which are used for catching pike and perch.
Because the bass isn’t as sharp teeth like a pike, a monofilament fishing line with a diameter of 0.12-0.20 mm. the Hook requires a single to No. 6 on the domestic classification.
Doubles and tees here completely irrelevant: p as careful and swallows the bait gently, and his mouth a little – pricked on double or tee, it will go away.
Soldered the hook, of course, better. Such spinners are playing faster and more effectively attract perch. But to work with them you need a special skill. If you’ve never practiced, you can use normal bait with hanging hooks. When this method of fishing is not critical.
What bait will be suitable
It must be remembered that the bass is quite a small mouth compared to the same pike. Hence, the large prey he will ignore. Pick up of live bait is no longer than 5 cm.
The live bait is not as important as its size. Many say that the best time to fish for minnows. But the experience of fishermen can say that they work any liars from those that live in a particular pond. You can put on imitation fish of roaches there, skimmers, bleak and small perch each fish may be biting. Plus minnows only in the fact that it is easy to stock up in advance, and it is not very demanding on water quality.
Many are trying to put the live bait on the back. But in the winter this tactic ineffective. It is noticed that in the winter perch attack the fish or in front and swallow with the head or the back. Therefore, the bait should stick to for the top sponge. In this case, the probability that bass will samozaschita increases. And the bait with this method the nozzle remains longer active.
But if fry
You can catch and fry. Often, the bait is more effective: rather lacking bass fry. But to stock this bait in the winter is almost impossible.
There are two solution to the problem. You can catch the fry in the fall and then keep it in the aquarium to winter fishing. But then there is the difficulty of moving: will need an aerator to Malek died in Cannes.
Another option is to find ice-free watersheds. Here too you can catch some juveniles who come to these areas for warmth and oxygen.
If baitfish interested in pike
Often the bait fish may be tempted by a passing pike. Although the toothy predator is a pretty coveted trophy, its bite can confuse fishing and bring considerable inconvenience.
Fortunately, the solution to this problem is, and he is widely known. Of particular importance, the shipment of the equipment. The bottom line is that the sinker should not be too heavy. Enough olives or pieces weighing up to 2 g.
When the shipment of live bait will be at the bottom, where it may be of interest to walleye or pike, and about half depth. The fish itself will choose a comfortable position in the middle range depths. And because large bass are often hunting just in the middle layers, he will hit your bait.
On selecting lures
When choosing lures lot depends on weather, fishing conditions, ice thickness and other factors, but the General principles still single.
If we talk about the lures, the lucky color is light yellow and silver. It is better to use the classic perches spinners up to 5 cm work Especially well “carnations”, “diamonds” and the spinner chain.
With rocker all the more difficult. This bait is more profitable. Her often biting big perch, but to choose the right colour of the lure is quite difficult. Fish in this respect too picky.
Experienced anglers are advised to use balance weights, which are colored under the fish: the back is darker, while the sides are lighter in colour. Also good work balance weights that resemble perch, that have striped the sides. Suitable length of the lure 3 to 6 cm.
Otherwise, experiment and rely on your intuition. If any balance weights have not worked, although imitation fish continue to raise the flags, change the bait, find a good coloring.
A simple example: if on a particular body of water is not working ash borer bait, try to put the bulk of the lure. Most likely the food base of fish are carp and small perch, not a minnow, and bleak.
The tactics of the game
No matter what you use: blesny or balance weights – wiring to do about the same. Lower the bait closer to the bottom, shaking the tip of the fishing rod and then draw stroke followed by a pause. The only difference is the stroke when trolling needs to be sharper and stronger.
You can also perform double and triple tapping on the bottom, followed by a smooth rise of 10-20 cm and strokes. But it is used in an extreme case, if the perch does not want to take the bait.
However, when fishing with spinners rifle without a cloud Muti, raised from the bottom, not enough. When vertical jigging you should touch the bottom, otherwise the bass will be just looking at the bait and not dare to bite. But it is important to remember that perch rarely hunt near the bottom. The bait needs to return in the middle of the deep, when it raised enough of the dregs.
About the jewelry
Overload spinners, rockers and hooks jewelry not worth it. But still, in some cases they don’t hurt. For example, when the fish began to subside, changed weather or perch bite hesitantly. In this case, can be hung on hooks or cambrica pieces of colored beads, wound strings or even collect them into a bundle and bind like a brush. But to overdo it with decorations is not worth it, otherwise they will worsen the play of the lure.
