Treacherous, mysterious alien. Crucian

The reasons for this confusion and uncertainty among amateur fishers should be explained by a number of unusual circumstances and conditions. Firstly, in the popular literature on sporting and recreational fishing, two varieties of crucian carp are traditionally described – gold and silver. Moreover, different authors have their own name for silver carp: silver, white, silver (oblong). However, when comparing, it is easy to see that even in appearance (size, shape, weight), the new “brother” is significantly different from its classical form. Secondly, if the well-known crucian predominantly lives in ponds, lakes, small rivers with a small current, then its new variety lives in the Volga, Akhtuba and the Don, in which the current velocity is quite noticeable.

Striped hunting: large perch prefers large spinner

It is difficult for me to agree with some of the points made by the authors of these materials.

Trout fishing

Trout belongs to the salmon family, but does not constitute a special species among them. It is a variety of trout and its subspecies: Black Sea, Caspian and Aral salmon. Only the Gogchinsky lake trout – Ishkhan – stands out as an independent species of salmon and occupies a special position.
Trout is mainly freshwater fish: mountain rivers and streams, large and small lakes with cold or spring water. In its size, color and lifestyle, the trout serves as an example of adaptability to various conditions. In large and forage reservoirs, it reaches a weight of 8-10 kilograms; in streams, it rarely exceeds 600 grams. In reservoirs, the bottom of which is covered with calcareous limestone or light pebbles, trout has a light gray color; in water bodies with large organic deposits, trout has a dark color. Small trout is brightly decorated, because it lives in small streams, the bottom of which is dotted with colorful pebbles. The variegated coloring of the body of pied trout helps her hide from her pursuers. Continue reading
