Sudak – perch family

Sudak is the largest representative of the Perch family. It has an elongated squamous body, fanged mouth with small teeth. Its back is greenish-gray, on it there are sharp spikes and two large wide fins, one of which has dark spots, dark vertical stripes on its sides, and ventral and anal fins are light yellow.

Sakhalin Taimen

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

Pike fishing in winter

I must say that uncontrolled pike fishing for bets brings a lot of damage to the reservoir, because stavers in some areas are just weeks. The locals go check them every day and of course there is no question of any sportiness. Of course, a huge amount of pike is knocked out, it happens that a large pike feeds once every two to three days, and it happens that once a week, and therefore, if there is a reservoir under such presses, then there are fewer pikes in it. But if you use artificial baits from ice, then you can have a catch on almost any winter day almost as much as stavers, and it’s very interesting, reckless and most importantly, that pike is a great fighter, during hooking, when you feel that big the weight on the fishing rod, with your hands you feel how the fish is torn, then it is pleasantly interesting and reckless.
