Fishing for bream with side fishing rods.

Fishing the bream with onboard fishing rods from a boat is attractive primarily because bites, even the most cautious, can be observed in the immediate vicinity. In addition, it is not necessary to wield long fishing rods, which is especially difficult in the wind. Anyway, this kind of fishing is somewhat reminiscent of winter fishing, especially on a hot summer day, when nostalgia for winter fishing comes.

It is easy to make gear for onboard fishing yourself, they are very compact and easily fit in a backpack. With them, it is easy to get to any reservoir by public transport, where you can rent a boat at the fishing base. On the road, there is no need to fear for the safety of gear – they will not hinder anyone because of their small size. The method that I want to talk about is used when fishing in reservoirs and reservoirs, where the current is small or absent. The depth in the selected place should be at least 4 meters – in a shallow cautious fish, it is afraid to come close to the boat. The boat should be light on the move, maneuverable, have low sides and therefore not too sail in the wind. Continue reading

Following the dam trail

In spearfishing, I had to observe how, on the border of open water and algae, huge shoals of small roach move in search of food, like scurrying in the grass or near snags, not so numerous, but larger and more cautious individuals, and how they hide in dark, dark places, solid samples in the roughnesses of the bottom. The latter in small and medium rivers, small lakes and reservoirs are kept in small groups. Such groups may include five to seven individuals, occasionally a little more. In large rivers, lakes and reservoirs, large flocks of large roach are not uncommon. Continue reading

Catching fish on the “tyrant” and “track” in the Black Sea

Fishing in the Black Sea on artificial baits is not described, although it is now widespread along the coast. Such methods include: fishing for tyrants on artificial flies from a vertical allowance, fishing for dead fish on tackles, fishing for spinning bonito, sea bass, white fish, and sometimes salmon and tuna, and fly fishing for fish and mackerel needles. Some fishermen for some reason believe that there are few fish in the Black Sea. On the contrary, it is rich in fish both in number and variety of species. Especially a lot of it in the region of Yevpatoria and in the Kerch Bay. Unfortunately, the remaining places are still poorly studied by fishermen-athletes. Continue reading
