What can be unusual in the behavior of the most ordinary fish? The carp is known to everyone since childhood, and it was this fish that was for many the first fishing trophy. Good fertility and ubiquity – forcing many, is not very respectful of this fish. Although crucian carp is already a worthy opponent for any angler. Strength, endurance and ingenuity – this is what makes many people look for meetings with this fish.
The word “crucian” has a masculine gender, but there is still debate about whether there are crucians males. Indeed found many reservoirs where they live alone females. And they spawn together with other fish. Their spawn can be fertilized by a male carp, bream, tench or roach. Although the present fertilization still does not work, the caviar seems to be activated for development, as a result, only a small crucian carp of the female appears.
“Karasin paths” about this, not many people know. This fish, like no other, moves in search of food along the same routes. And if our gear is abandoned just aFishing carp this route, then bites can not be seen for a long time. And if you find such a “path” and feed, then the bite will be much higher. Feeding anywhere – does not give the desired effect.
Bred from a crucian Many have seen a goldfish, and for some lives one of its species. It is interesting that: a golden fish is also a crucian, which has been so changed by breeders. Today, there are several dozen species of goldfish. It was first bred in China, hundreds of years ago.
With good nutrition for two years, the crucian gains weight in 200 grams (like a little, but when you consider the fecundity and the possible amount of this fish in the pond).
In the hot summer, the main activity of this fish is in the evening, morning and night. At such a time, and sometimes during the day near the shore, in the reeds you can hear something similar to champing, squishing or smacking – these little cruises swim up to be fed with young shoots of vegetation and often stick their faces out of the water to take a breath of air or just look at the world.
By the quick wits, this fish will not yield to the carp. If a crucian sees that it is being delivered with nonsense, and there is nowhere to run, then it lies on a flank in some depression at the bottom, and waits until the nonsense passes through it.
Many people know that under poor external conditions (drying up of the reservoir, strong freezing of the reservoir) this owner of the reservoirs is able to dive into or wait for unsuitable conditions for months. But it is interesting that even at full freezing of a crucian, as the doctors say of “clinical death”, if the temperature rises again, it is able to come to life. And this time can last for several hours. And the freezing of this fish with ice is not at all rare. The field of his melting crucian, as a rule, comes to life.
A crucian is often caught on a brawler, and individuals are at least 500gr, and if there are record specimens in the pond, they will gladly be tempted by the cake.
In some reservoirs, you can try to catch this fish for fat. Yes, it is a piece of unsalted lard that alone or in combination with another bait can seduce a large crucian. And sometimes it is better if lard infuses with garlic.
Large creep, can also be a treat for our large pet. Moreover, the bites have to wait a long time, but if they bite (and in order to suck up such a worm it takes time), then the largest crucian carp. It helps a lot when there are a lot of small fish in the pond, which eats another nozzle.
This fish is one of the hottest lovers. That just does not add to the nozzle or bait to attract it. Kerosene, VD-40, Corvalol, and valerian, and garlic, and dill are used … Not to mention the standard amplifiers of aniseed oil, vegetable, vanilla, coffee, etc.
Many people know crucian ponds. If there is no predator on the reservoir, for example, the living conditions do not allow it to develop normally, then the crucian begins to multiply so that it forces out any other fish. At the same time, there is a great lack of nutrition, and generation after generation is constantly becoming smaller. As a result, a huge number of fifty-gram “patches” and the absence of any competitors. (In addition to carp, self-regulation of growth involves perch. Sometimes they also seem very small, but in reality this is a fully mature individual.) But conditions change, birds can bring predator eggs with them, flood makes possible the arrival of a pike or perch. Then a holiday for toothy fish begins in such a pond. They eat everything they can swallow. But if some crucians survive this time, they will grow in truly gigantic proportions, under which the predator is no longer so terrible.
Pickiness is about the nature of this fish. If you come fishing and do not catch a single crucian on this reservoir, this does not mean that it is not here. There are places where the bite of this fish occurs only in the morning or in the evening, and maybe even at night. Sometimes a crucian takes a non-standard approach to the choice of a nozzle and takes almost from the very surface of the water (literally 30-50 cm).
