Light and color vision in fish

Illumination of the aquatic environment to a large extent determines the motor and nutritional activity of fish, and color vision is used by them to recognize aquatic and plant organisms by their color. In some fish, color vision serves to reflexively change color for protective purposes.

Daily changes in the intensity of illumination are the cause of daily vertical migrations of fish. For each fish species, there is a certain limit to solar radiation, above which the conditions for them become unfavorable, and then they sink to a depth or take shelter in shaded places and stop eating. This is confirmed by the behavior of fish in cloudy weather – they remain active throughout the daylight hours. By the way, invertebrates, crustaceans, leading a bottom or bottom lifestyle, do not tolerate direct sunlight. Continue reading

Winter fishing of a bream without a nozzle

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.

July fishing

July is, perhaps, the same month of the summer season, when the sun is baking in all its might. For the fisherman this month can be described as not the best when you can count on a rich catch. Everything is explained quite simply. The upper layers of the water surface warm up to a temperature that is not comfortable for the fish, all the more so in the places of shallow water. As a result, almost all fish goes to a depth, or lives in places where there are a large number of bottom springs. In the afternoon, when the weather is calm and hot, you can’t count on a good catch in most cases. Therefore, fishing in the July days will be more practical if the day is rainy and cloudy. Also, the best time for fishing in July will be the morning hours, when dawn just rises. At this time, the water is still not so much warmed up as during the day and the fish rises from depth to surface. In some cases, fishing can take place at night. At such times bream, zander, chub, pike, perch are well caught. Continue reading
