even in large rivers
The bream is an enviable and desirable trophy at any time of the year for most anglers in central Russia. Muscovites follow him to the Istra, Ruzskoye, Ozerninskoye, Vazuzsko-Yauzskoye reservoirs, as well as the Uglich, Rybinsk and Moscow seas. Some rivers of the Moscow Region are also rich in bream – the Volga, Oka, Protva, Pakhra, Dubna and others.
Quite a lot is known about summer bream bream. It has its own specific features, which is the subject of a separate discussion. Winter bream fishing traditionally suggests that at first it is plentifully fed in several holes with a small bloodworm, and then they begin to “hatch” around these holes for a long time. In this case, three main systems of tackle equipment are used: “float – sinker-hook”, “float – mormyshka”, “nod – mormyshka”. Catch, as a rule, on a motionless tackle, planting bloodworms.

Burbot is the only representative of the cod family living in fresh waters. This is a cold-loving fish, showing activity at a water temperature of no higher than + 10 ° C, so in the summer it is almost impossible to catch it. The most favorable time for fishing is considered to be cold and inclement weather. Perhaps because of this, burbot is not so popular among fishermen.
It is impossible to confuse burbot with other fish. His body is long, spindle-shaped, tapering to the tail, covered with small scales firmly seated in the skin and a thick layer of thick mucus. The head is wide, strongly flattened, resembles the head of a frog, its mouth is large with many small teeth, there is one small antennae on the chin and another around the nostrils on the antenna. The color is grayish or olive green with dark brown spots and stripes. Eyes are small yellow, with dark pupils. Continue reading
Sakhalin Oblast is rich in fish; taimen is also found here. His biology has been little studied. This predator leads a secretive lifestyle. It is found in almost all water bodies of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands as well as southern Primorye, for some time lives in coastal sea waters, and on Lake Tunaicha – almost all year round. Already 15-30 centimeters — two to four years old — begin to eat fish (ten-pointed sticklebacks, larvae of lampreys and char, young Pacific salmon), however, crustaceans still make up the majority of the ration of taimen of this size. And even the food of taimen 31-50 cm long is only half composed of fish. For specimens with a length of more than 50 cm, it becomes the main feed, and its weight in their diet is already 75 percent. But we must also bear in mind that many mice-like rodents and any other living creatures fall into the jaws of predators. Continue reading
