Chebak, or Amur ide is a common fish in the Amur basin. In Primorye, it is found in almost all bodies of water, excluding the very upper reaches of mountain rivers and low-flowing small lakes. According to literature, it reaches 30 cm and 250-400 g, but my personal record is 870 g, and fish weighing 500-600 g comes across constantly. In appearance, the chebak is similar to an ordinary ide, but has a higher body and less bright fins. It spawns in May, during spawning and immediately after it, it feeds mainly on insect larvae, insects themselves, filamentous algae. Chebak in large quantities destroys eggs and juveniles of valuable fish species, so its catch is unlimited.
In spring, this fish is well caught on worms, maggots, caddis flies, pearl barley, and bread nozzles. In summer, biting is much worse. A large chebak can be caught only at night on a lamprey larva, in the daytime only small and medium specimens are caught on greens, insects, bread nozzles. Continue reading
We will make a reservation right away: we are talking about narrowing the pike perch on live bait, and not about fishing with mugs and all kinds of “rubber bands”. Against the backdrop of the growing popularity of spinning, this fishing was in the shade – and completely undeserved.
Live bait? The classic bait fish for zander has an elongated body and a length of up to 12 centimeters. For example, gudgeon, bleak, roach, dace, chub, roach, perch, ruff, etc. However, my secret nozzle for capital zander in stagnant water bodies does not meet these parameters: this is a big roach!
How to plant?
I put a large live bait fish (when fishing in stagnant water) on one tee, carefully sticking it behind the dorsal fin, and small one on the single, for the upper lip. The size of the hook, of course, should correspond to the size of the live bait, and not at all the size of the expected zander, as some believe. Continue reading
Everywhere in Russia, where in winter the ponds are covered with ice shells, you can meet near the holes of fishing anglers. We still have enough fish in lakes and rivers in Altai. The farther you leave from settlements, the richer the catches. But poaching networks are everywhere; many of them are placed by overgrown peasants of no fixed abode, living in dugouts and drinking their catches. And recently, electricity has also been added to the networks. Fish is cautious, ignores many baits. And in such conditions, non-nozzle mormyshka is very popular. The center of its development was Barnaul, where by the end of the seventies, up to eighty percent of winter-anglers fished or learned to fish without a nozzle. At Kazennaya Zaimka, a channel located on the outskirts of the city, up to six thousand people gathered over three wintering pits over the weekend, catching the scammer on the legendary “little devil”.
