Catching fish in the sea for tying

The number of fishing enthusiasts in the Black Sea is increasing every year, and this is not surprising. Fishing at sea is an interesting, fascinating vacation, which is a great pleasure. In the region of Sukhumi, among local fishermen, the method of fishing for tyranny is very common. Mostly horse mackerel (July-November) and herring (September-November) are caught for tying. At times, mackerel is well caught. Sometimes other marine fish also come across a tyrant: bonito, crucian carp, merlanka, katran (prickly shark). What is fishing tackle?

Grayling in small rivers

These notes are for beginners in grayling. You can perfectly catch roach, perch or dace, but be completely helpless loser when hunting for grayling. I went through this. I probably did not have good teachers or the right books, and it may very well be that I would not have been involved in catching grayling if it weren’t for a fortunate occasion. It happened many years ago, though not with me, but with my friend. Then we spent the whole day fishing. Our successes were modest. The fact that there is grayling in the river, and decent, we knew and tried to catch at least one. I experimented in amateurish ways with artificial flies and fly fishing, and my friend tried to succeed with a fishing rod and a planted worm. Grayling was not given to us. Continue reading

Pike fishing

The structure of the pike is adapted for fast movements. Her body shape is Chondo-elongated (arrow-shaped) with far protruding flat jaws, well dissecting the water. Dorsal and pre-caudal fins moved closer to caudal. The wide and powerful caudal fin, together with the dorsal and pre-caudal, gives the pike an opportunity to make instant and strong forward throws during wave-like movements of the back of the body and when striking with the tail. Her body is covered with small scales and a large amount of mucus, which also contributes to the speed of movement.

Chebaka on a spoon-bait ?!

Chebak, or Amur ide is a common fish in the Amur basin. In Primorye, it is found in almost all bodies of water, excluding the very upper reaches of mountain rivers and low-flowing small lakes. According to literature, it reaches 30 cm and 250-400 g, but my personal record is 870 g, and fish weighing 500-600 g comes across constantly. In appearance, the chebak is similar to an ordinary ide, but has a higher body and less bright fins. It spawns in May, during spawning and immediately after it, it feeds mainly on insect larvae, insects themselves, filamentous algae. Chebak in large quantities destroys eggs and juveniles of valuable fish species, so its catch is unlimited.

In spring, this fish is well caught on worms, maggots, caddis flies, pearl barley, and bread nozzles. In summer, biting is much worse. A large chebak can be caught only at night on a lamprey larva, in the daytime only small and medium specimens are caught on greens, insects, bread nozzles. Continue reading

Burbot fishing

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
