Winter bream fishing
Winter bream fishing is a whole encyclopedia in which special lures are intertwined with special additives in complementary foods and other numerous secrets. It is impossible to fully grasp the whole topic, and it is not necessary. When building your fishing it is important to deal with specific small fishing moments, some of which will be discussed.
The best floats for winter fishing are made of dense polystyrene of brand 200 and higher. Softer polystyrene, though slowly but inevitably, begins to “drink” water. As a result, the capacity of the float decreases, and all the time-consuming work of adjusting the weight of the sinker (mormyshka) to the float goes down the drain, and this is insulting.
However, the float from a not very dense foam can also be protected from water, covering it entirely (and not just the top) with a thick layer of paint, even better with several thin layers. Paint, by the way, will play another important role – it will prevent the float from quickly freezing in the cold, upsetting the balance of the equipment.
Skimmer yes on the head of a bream. The very last thing is to make noise on the ice when a bream or large scavenger comes up. Usually there are three types of negative for fishing noises, traditionally issued by ignorant fishermen.
The first is the drilling of additional holes next to the hole (s), where the nibble begins to fade. In this case, the flock can simply leave the site, without regret having parted with lure. The second – after going to the next well-fed hole, the fisherman almost throws a metal box on the ice and after that he tries to catch a bream from this hole. The third is the most common type of noise, which can also alert the bream very well, namely, knocking down the ice from a scoop-skimmer, hitting it with ice. Of course, in severe frost, ice on the scoop greatly interferes, but it is better to remove it with another, some kind of noiseless technique. Or use a scoop made of high-quality plastic – squeezing it slightly with your palm, and the ice falls itself.
Bloodworm alive and half-dead
The bream can also take on inanimate bloodworms, even already slightly faded, but this is not the rule at all. A lively, moving bloodworm causes much more bites, especially if you catch not on the game, but on the float. Therefore, the forest owners try to get immaculately fresh, mobile bloodworms for fishing. However, in frosts above 10-15 degrees, especially in frosts with strong winds, in order to deprive bloodworm activity, it is enough to hold it in an open box for only ten seconds. In difficult weather conditions, fishing two salvos will save: large and small. The large supply of bloodworms is stored in a large box, and this bloodworms are kept warm, for example, in the inside pocket of a jacket or short fur coat. A large incinerator goes only to quickly replenish the working bait, which is stored in a small incinerator.
Spoiler over lure
Quite often, an interesting picture is observed – the hole is fed, but all bites of the scavenger are observed much higher than the bottom. It seems logical to assume that the fish simply do not respond to complementary foods, but hangs in the floor of the water. On not lured holes located nearby, there are no bites at all. This phenomenon is especially noticeable when the holes are fed in the morning, and fishing is closer in the evening. For such fishing in the water column, only a mammoth tackle with a nod is suitable. Of course, you can catch with a nozzle, with the same bloodworm, chasing the mormyshka up and down, but the devil is considered an ideal bait. Moreover, success can bring not only the traditional smooth wiggle with a nod with a rather rapid rise at the same time. It happens that a nibble will “break through” in another game, for example, a high rise with a small amplitude, but frequent fluctuations. And it happens to stir up the scavenger for bites, raising the little devil smoothly, slowly, without any hesitation.
Enrage bream game
In periods of weak biting, the bream can be very reluctant to take up standing gear, and it does not matter how it is caught – on a hook or mormyshka. Sometimes this technique helps: often, but with a small amplitude, they work with a nod, trying not to tear the mormyshka completely from the bottom. During such a “shake” (or immediately after it during a pause, when the mormyshka falls to the bottom again), a sure, characteristic for the bream, rise of the nod follows. You can try a very exotic way of fishing. On paired holes – “deuces” use different gear. On one hole, a fishing rod equipped with a sinker and hook. In the next hole, a nod with mormyshka. All bites take place exclusively on a fishing rod, but only if you actively work with a mormyshka. At the same time, there are no bites at all.
In severe frost or icy wind it is important to maintain the sensitivity of the fingers. This is especially important for bream breeding. It is difficult to fish out with “wooden”, frozen fingers, especially with thin fishing lines. To keep warm, it’s good to keep your hands in spacious gloves that can be instantly folded. It is even better to use a fur clutch mounted on the belt. With active fishing, wristbands have proven themselves to cover the back of the hands and fingers.
