Zhivets on pike - features of catching. How to catch pike on bait
Pike for many fishermen is welcometrophy, which is twice as pleasant to catch, if you do not use any additional ultra-modern devices. After all, it's true that a pike perch is one of the oldest methods of fishing this "river shark". And this can be asserted boldly, since fishing - a way of extracting food - was known in primitive times. And it is unlikely that the then fishermen used any additional silicone or metal accessories. Probably, therefore, the pike perch is certainly one of the most popular methods of fishing for a cold-blooded predator. A bait in this case is a live small fish.
How to catch pike on bait: some features
First and foremost: before catching the pike itself, it is necessary to fetch more bait! In part, this nuance, I must say, acts as a deterrent to some fishermen. Like, why bother, because you still need a pike perch. And where to get it, what kinds of small fish are the most effective to use?
On the other hand, it is the freshest fish - the livestock on the pike - the best treat for it. And no substitutes, from the point of view of the predator, at least in taste, do not go into comparison.
One more thing: a similar kind of fishing, of course, can not be too long, since the zhivotsy can deteriorate, it is necessary to catch new ones. Although there are, of course, methods for preserving a specific bait, so to speak, in health for quite a long time (we will talk about this a little later).
What kind of fish to use
As bait for pike can be used andthe top, and a small crucian carp, and a whisker, and a gudgeon. Some cling to tiny perches caught on the eve, for example, nonsense. Ershik fits less for these purposes because of his prickliness. How to catch pike on bait? In no case should not attach to the hook unnecessarily large specimens of fish. Of course, such a tactical move can attract a particularly large trophy. But it may not work well: either smaller predators will not be able to swallow a large nozzle, or you may not be able to cope with a trophy that is gigantic (it's no secret that you can catch a toothy fish weighing more than 15 kg, and in some cases up to 30 ).
How to plant a bait
Should be used as the most effectiveoption hook-double or tee is not too large. Puncture is best under the upper fin, as accurately as possible. So the fish will last on the hook as long as possible (than, for example, when baited in the mouth or eye area) and will remain mobile, attracting the attention of the pike. Thus, and to change the bait can be much less.
Fishing rod for pike on bait
The most commonly used gear for such afishing - bottom fishing rod or float. Catching pike on a baitfish on a float can be carried out from the shore, and from the boat. In the latter case, the fisherman, in search of a trophy, should move as carefully as possible, stopping for a few meters after every few meters. First, upon arrival to the pond, study carefully the relief for snags, anomalies in the form of flooded trees, near which usually there is a toothy beauty. She also prefers to go out in shallow water in the warm weather, overgrown with plants (all sorts of water-lilies and herringbone). Here it can be found. And in the rain and cloudy weather, she again goes under the snags, where for a long time lies in wait, waiting for the lost fish.
We collect tackle
What do we need to tackle the bait? Pike loves a fishing rod more powerful, as she is in itself a fish active in vyvazhivanii and strong. The coil should be simple, but reliable (gear ratio, for example, 6: 5: 1), and the float is quite large. The friction is set below the frictional load so that it does not constantly buzz. The line braided is the best way. If the Japanese - 0,2 mm. Leash is better to take a metal, for example, make your own hands from a guitar string (take the second - "si"). It turns out both cheaply and angrily - it's the most!
How to make a leash for catching a bait from a guitar string
It is noticed that the metal lead is the besta remedy against pike teeth, by which she can simply wipe an ordinary nylon line. But branded products in stores for a fisherman are quite expensive. We offer the best option: to make a leash yourself. It will require a minimum number of standard tools: vise and pliers, soldering iron, tin and wire cutter, small metal rod, silicone tubing. Cut the wire cutter (the second from the bottom at the guitar) - 15 cm. We bend the end of the string 15 mm from the edge in the form of a hook. We grip it in a vice and twist it with a metal rod until we get a small loop. We work on the sandpaper and we are splicing the joint. At the place of twisting we put on a piece of safety silicone tube. In the same way we proceed with the other end of the string. On the loops put on swivels, for them will be attached self-made. The leash is ready. We select a hook - a double or a tee, commensurate with the size of the live bait, which you are going to plant.
In general, tackle can look like this: to the main line-weaving with a cambric we fix the float. A small, teardrop-shaped, leash from the string and a hook was loaded. You can start fishing. Yes, and do not forget the paddock. Without it, catching a large or medium pike will be quite problematic!
In the autumn
Pike on a live bird in autumn, when a predator beginsactively fattening, goes especially well. The tactics of catching include biting, sweeping, and braking. And all the stages are extremely important for pike fishing. It must also be ensured that the pond is not overpopulated with perch. Then, and a fairly large zhivets will not save (this minke can swallow fish only a third less than its size).
Tactics of catching
After the pike grabs the fry, it tendsgo to the most convenient place to feast on prey. From the point of poklevki float can sail sometimes up to 2 meters! At this time experienced shchukolov advise to observe a pause and in any case not to cut, as you can run into idle. When the float brakes, then only need to do the appropriate movements.
Sometimes it happens that the pike does not go anywheresails, then the float abruptly sinks, but then floats up and freezes for a while. Here, too, a pause is important in order to give the fish a good "rasprobovat" bait. If you do not cut off on time (as a hasty novice likes to do), the trophy tends to go off the hook. And the resident remains in the mouth of the predator, torn with sharp teeth.
So, we hold a pause before the floatbegins to swing sideways and to heal. At this time, the pike unfolds the live bait forward with its head. And then, swallowing the nozzle, makes a move to the side, carrying the float behind him. Here comes the time to strike! A fishing trophy is almost guaranteed to no longer come off the hook and will be on the shore after skillful vyvazhivaniya!
How to Save Buckwheat
Finally a few words on how to saveA fish intended for attachment in a live form throughout the fishing. Some prefer to do this in a special cage, lowered to a shallow depth. If you catch from a boat, and the lover swims in a small bucket, then more often change the water to 2/3 of its volume. The smaller the fish in the tank, the longer they swim. And get them from there best of all with a small net, so as not to damage the fins.
