Pike perch is schooling, actively moving in a large area of the reservoir. Chasing him, constantly changing fishing places, is not always justified. Much more rational, knowing the seasonal, daily migration of predator flocks, wait for it in a certain place and at a certain time. For each reservoir, whether it is a river, lake or reservoir, the schedule for zander to reach very specific and favorite places in established weather runs with an accuracy of 1 to 10 minutes.
Since mid-July, pike perch activity in reservoirs has been falling sharply, biting has shifted to night time and does not occur more often than once every one to two days. In rivers, zander is more active throughout the entire period of open water; but, starting in July, confidently pecks only at night. Continue reading
Initially, the only reliable way to perform long-range casting when fishing on a fishing rod was such that the equipment was gradually carried away by the flow to the desired distance. But technical thought did not stand still, and with the advent of inertialess coils, using artificial materials for the manufacture of rods, the true birth of gear for long casting occurred. At present, long casting is understood as a fishing method in which the length of the line from the tip of the rod to the float is several times the length of the rod itself.
As in the spinning rod, the rod for long casting should be equipped with through-rings and inertialess reel. It is desirable that its length be in the range of 3.7 – 4 m with 12 to 16 access rings with high legs. Continue reading
