In order to catch a line, it is necessary to choose areas on the border between thickets of reeds or reeds and clear water, shallow, moderately overgrown bays, windows among aquatic vegetation. In such places are “line trails”, on which the fish goes every day to search for food.
Determining the exact location of these feeding paths is not so easy. To do this, you need to fix the places and time of appearance of bubbles of marsh gas on the surface of the water, which are issued by fish digging in the mud, and of regularly visiting the same water body.
The time spent searching for feeding trails is more than repaid on the following fishing trips, as the fish are strongly tied to them and, in the absence of interventions from the outside, do not leave them.
Pecking tench starts at the beginning of May, and the best biting happens right after spawning, in July and in the first half of August. Fish spawn in several stages from mid-May to late June. During spawning, the fish do not cease to eat completely, but catching a tench at this time will have a random character. By the middle of August, the bite of the line gradually weakens, and by the end of September it stops altogether. However, at the beginning of September there are short flashes of activity, during which the intensity of the bite is not inferior to the post-spawning period.
Fish activity has a pronounced daily course. The best bite is from early morning to nine o’clock. Later, the bite fades, and by eleven o’clock stops completely. Evening activity begins about two hours before sunset, and lasts almost until dark. At night, tench is not caught.
The weather has a significant effect on the activity of the cool line. On warm and cloudy days, the time of active feeding of the tench increases, in the heat it can eat only in the early morning. Sharp jumps in atmospheric pressure have a very negative effect on the bite.
Pecks tench quite carefully. At first, he tries the bait for a long time, which leads to a slight jiggle of the float, and only then a rather powerful bite follows. The float abruptly goes under water or to the side.
Chopped fish has a rather strong resistance. Kilogram fish can easily crush the shaky tackle, on which you caught kilogram bream just yesterday. The use of podsak on line fishing is a prerequisite. Fishing line
The line-out comes to the search for food from the dawn, but moving along the intended route, it may come to the point you have fed up much later. A similar situation occurs in the evening fishing. The time of the most intense bite needs to be fixed, which will allow more intelligent preparation for fishing.
The line moves along the feeding paths in chains consisting of isolated groups of ten specimens each. Large specimens are fed alone. Based on this, after the temporary termination of the bite, you need to feed the point and expect the approach of the new group. The bait will be able to keep the tench at the point of catching, although not for long.
The basic ration of tench consists of food of animal origin. He willingly eats worms, insect larvae and various aquatic organisms. Vegetable food in the diet of fish occupies a very small proportion, and does not represent practical interest for the angler. The best nozzles for fishing are worms and crustaceans.
For a long time, sour cottage cheese mixed with sunflower or hemp cake is used as bait for fishing. In this bait be sure to add chopped worms. Even if the angler doesn’t have many worms, some of them need to be finely chopped and mixed with bait. The smell they emit acts flawlessly. A large amount of bait is not required, one and a half kilograms of the finished mixture will be quite enough for all fishing.
In line fishing, float gear is used predominantly. The number of rods depends on the conditions of fishing and the activity of the fish, but it is desirable to use no more than two. With a larger number of rods, the likelihood that the hooked fish will confuse them when they are pulled out increases.
