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. Gill covers without or partially covered with scales. Zander lives in many rivers and lakes, reservoirs, and even in some clean sandy deep quarries of the basins of the Baltic, Black, Azov and Caspian seas. It is also universe in the waters of the Moscow region.
This fish prefers running clean water, rich in oxygen, keeps in places free of vegetation, most often near the bottom, in pits with flooded trees or snag, stones or boulders, on steep banks, near destroyed river structures. Spawns in May – early June. Continue reading
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
The main mistake of a beginner spinning player, as a rule, is that he goes in cycles on one or two perch baits, sacredly believing in their capabilities. Thus, the main tactical rule is ignored. What is its essence? I will explain with a specific example. Once at the exit from a rather deep bay (Ruzskoe reservoir) to the Black Fury spinner I picked up a decent perch. However, subsequent casts for approximately 20 minutes were inconclusive. Meanwhile, perch drove a trifle at the very surface of the water.
I put a yellow twister – after a couple of casts a bite. Behind her is another, third. I change (for experiment) the yellow twister to black – again a snap. But the time (the same 20 minutes) of the morning zhor was lost, and soon the predator disappeared. I advise you to do no more than ten casts with each bait, and then change it. Then the perch will let you know which one is more to his taste. Continue reading
