Fishing? Intellectual challenge!
Carp fishing is a science. Carp – smart fish and extremely capricious. Karpfishing as an elite type of sport fishing is now very popular. To say: “Catch fish!” Is easy, but to catch … About the features and wisdom of carp fishing I speak with the candidate of the master of sports in sport fishing, the champion of Khakassia in carp fishing Denis ASOCHAKOV.
– Have you been keen on carping for a long time?
– Carp fishing for me and hobby, and sport. I have been doing it for ten years, although I have been fishing since childhood.
– Are there many such fishermen in Khakassia?
– I am the president of the regional-public organization “Khakass Carp Club”. Our organization is for those who want to engage in this type of fishing. We have raised more than one candidate for the master of sports in the form of “Fishing sport.” We are united by one idea, we love this rather specific sport.
– With your own rules?
– Of course. We don’t pick up big fish, take pictures and let go. We even have such a saying – “Friends do not eat.”
– Yes, I read that in the carp sport fishing there is an important rule – “caught – photographed – released”.
– There are special mats on which you place the fish so that it does not beat on the shore, it does not damage the scales. There is a specific weighing procedure. At the competition for the wrong attitude to the fish fined.
– Your fishing is very delicate …
– Yes, it is impossible as usual – stretched out, threw on the shore. You do everything neatly: only wet hands should be, the mat is doused with water … You can talk about it for a long time. There are international rules to follow.
– Isn’t it difficult to subordinate the hobby to the rules?
– Not. But to catch this fish is quite difficult and very interesting! Carp is the strongest fish from freshwater, so you get a lot of adrenaline when driving out, with resistance. Carp fishing – thoughtful, it is a bit like chess.
– To fishing, I think you are preparing carefully.
– When planning fishing, you must make sure that you have made all the necessary preparations. For example, do not limit yourself to just the bottom gears, because fish may be in the water column, and maybe on the surface in search of heat. Also make sure that you have suitable clothes and shoes.
Like a dolphin …
– Karp for our republic is not uncommon?
– There are a lot of carp in Khakassia, there is it in rivers and lakes. However, carp is mainly found on the Krasnoyarsk reservoir.
– Such fishing is quite expensive. How much is spent on one departure?
– I don’t consider my food; we have the simplest food. Stew, noodles – standard tourist in general. The fish we feed tastes better than ourselves. At the bait for three days takes no less than three thousand.
Again, it all depends on what you want. There are ponds where the fish allows you to cheat, is caught on an inexpensive bait. But somewhere fish is fastidious and there will not be anything to eat. She already knows different bait, so she walks and chooses more tasty.
– At a carp, especially large, original “detector of utility”. He knows exactly what kind of food and how many calories he will get. Roughly speaking, carp will not waste their energy.
He will never swim to the bait, which does not cover his energy costs. If boilies have a sharp, irritating smell, carp can be lured. Fish goes well for fruit, they like sweet smells, such as banana, strawberry. This confectionery factory! But these boilies are low in calories. On the second day, the carp already understands this, and the rate of pokleva falls.
– And if you offer him several tastes at once?
– We go fishing together – three of us, no more. The reason is simple: when a lot of people, the fish can not catch anyone. Everyone feeds differently, and if everything is mixed in one place, the fish get scared and move away.
– I read that to outwit a large carp is a serious, even intellectual task.
– There is, yes. This is especially true of large individuals, they are really elusive. How many examples of carp tricks! As he turns for some items, it is always felt that he runs to where there is something to cling to. Sometimes he tries to rest his head on the bottom, finds elevation and rises vertically. In this position, it is almost impossible to pull it out.
– Listening to you, I understand that carp is a special fish …
– Carp is a smart and strong fish. With all his greed to feed it is not easy to wait for him to pay attention to the nozzle. And they can jump out of the water, it is very beautiful! The carp stands on its tail and moves like a dolphin, like a water bike.
Because I probably like this fishing – it is unpredictable. We are professionally engaged in this, but it also happens that in three days you will not catch anything. He can jump in your fishing zone, as if mocking, but not pecking.
There are no competitors!
– When can I catch a carp?
– The fishing season begins in early April and lasts until the first decade of October. According to the rules of fishing from the first days of May to June 21, fishing is prohibited.
– How do you get out of the situation?
– At this time I drive to a private lake. Sometimes you just want comfortable fishing, without extreme sports.
