July fishing

July is, perhaps, the same month of the summer season, when the sun is baking in all its might. For the fisherman this month can be described as not the best when you can count on a rich catch. Everything is explained quite simply. The upper layers of the water surface warm up to a temperature that is not comfortable for the fish, all the more so in the places of shallow water. As a result, almost all fish goes to a depth, or lives in places where there are a large number of bottom springs. In the afternoon, when the weather is calm and hot, you can’t count on a good catch in most cases. Therefore, fishing in the July days will be more practical if the day is rainy and cloudy. Also, the best time for fishing in July will be the morning hours, when dawn just rises. At this time, the water is still not so much warmed up as during the day and the fish rises from depth to surface. In some cases, fishing can take place at night. At such times bream, zander, chub, pike, perch are well caught. Continue reading

Northern salmon

For fishermen-athletes, the most interesting are salmon and trout, which are caught on sports equipment. These fish willingly grab baubles and other artificial baits, but are very stubborn when fishing them after being caught on a fishing rod.

Salmon-semga reaches 1.5 meters in length and 40 kilograms in weight. It spawns from late August to October, in areas with a fast flow and soil of gravel and small pebble. On the Kola Peninsula, in the Kola, Tuloma and Niva rivers, salmon enter in spring H in mid-May, in summer H in mid-June and in August. Salmon enter the Neva, Luga, Narova and other smaller rivers flowing into the Gulf of Finland from July 10–12 until the end of the month, and then from mid-August to mid-September. Continue reading

Fishing for catfish in Primorye

I’ll make a reservation right away that the article will focus on rivers, because there are very few lakes in Primorye where catfish are caught (I certainly do not mean Hanka), but catfish live in every, even small, river. Another feature of Primorye is that catfish are caught in small sizes from 0.3 to 1.5 kg. Catching an individual more than 10 kg is a great success. Usually such monsters are found in the middle and lower reaches of Ussuri, Hanke, Razdolnaya. The larger the river, the greater the likelihood of catching krupnyak, and since in Primorye large rivers can be counted on the fingers of one hand, the likelihood of catching something worthwhile is small.
