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

Either the oxygen regime has changed, or the feed has run out, or atmospheric pressure has fallen sharply. One can only guess …

At one time, I “shoveled” a lot of materials on the biology of perch – the most ubiquitous predator among us, including candidate dissertations, which remained accessible only to a narrow circle of ichthyologists. Fishermen, deprived of scientific information, lose a lot in the sense of acquiring skill, and especially when fishing with spinning.
Somehow on the shore, I got into a conversation with a young spinning player. It turned out that he has been fishing for perch for five years. Well-equipped, using a fairly impressive set of modern lures from branded spinners to plastic fish and wobblers, my interlocutor, however, had a very vague idea of the nuances and behavior characteristics of the perch, without knowledge of which it is impossible to achieve good results.
