Any fisherman has his own favorite bait, which brings him luck everywhere, but, oddly enough, for many people, this turned out to be a lure “Kastmaster”, as a result of which it is often recommended to beginners. However, many do not know what are the advantages of this spinner and why it is so often used.
What is she like?
Blesna "Kastmaster" is made in five basic sizes with an appropriate weight (from 7 to 35 grams). The bait is completed with a standard tee and clockwork ring, while it is worth noting the fact that in certain cases spinners can be left painted or equipped with a reflective sticker. In most cases, experts who use the bastard "Kastmaster" recommend to immediately remove this sticker, because it can ruin the game, and the paint gradually exfoliates after the first hours of fishing. The classic version is a product of silver color.
If you work for the result or even take part in any competitions, then in this case it is best for you to replace the standard tee, which is installed on this spoon, because the bundle includes rather dull hooks that are extremely difficult to sharpen. Choose the size of the tee should be in accordance with the bait.
How to equip a fishing rod?
Bastard "Kastmaster" can not be equipped with a carbine, swivel or a crown ring for the reason that when using such components instead of the game, the spoon begins to swim on one side, as a result of which it loses almost all its attractiveness to predatory fish. It is recommended to tie the bait to the main line in advance, and to do so with a protracted knot, however, it is worth noting that using this method may cause a problem of strong rubbing of the fishing line on the knot, as a result of which the fish and the bait itself will be inevitable.
To avoid this, the bait on the perch and other fish should be equipped with a standard tungsten leash, which is fixed to the jar by the “loop in loop” technology. In the same way, the swivel should be attached to the other end of the leash; in this case, the length of the leash should be approximately 20-30 cm in order to ensure a truly reliable use of the equipment, as well as to minimize losses for the lure game.
If such a spoon is used on a perch, it will be possible to use any spinning rods, the length of which is from 2 to 3.3 meters, and the upper test should be 40 or 35 g. Do not forget that the power of the rod should depend directly on the masses of lures you buy, and if the majority of fishermen use lures up to 21 g and such rods are suitable for them, then when buying “heavy” devices with a weight of more than 40 g you can think about purchasing an even more powerful rod.
Reel and fishing line
If we talk about coils, it will be optimal to use the inertia-free option, as it provides the ability to throw at the greatest possible distance. With a length of the rod of about 2.7 m, it is worth using “two thousand", the forest capacity of spools in which is 0.25 mm / 125 m, while with a longer rod the use of three thousand meters will be more efficient.
It is customary to deliver the coils with two spools at once, while on one of them a yellow fishing line is installed, and on the other - black. Depending on how lit up the water is, you need to replace the spools, because the fishing line should always be noticeable.
Choosing which line to use, in the majority of cases, experts recommend installing a mono-wall instead of a standard braid, if you are interested in Kastmaster (spoon). The price of such products is somewhat higher, and the fishing line itself must be wound onto a spool over 125 meters. Such a long fishing line is used for the reason that this spinner by experienced fishermen can easily be thrown over 100 m. At the same time, the cost of the “Kastmaster” itself ranges from 200 to 700 rubles.
The fishing line you buy should be distinguished by an extremely high degree of strength and softness. For example, some craftsmen use a fishing line, the breaking load of which is about 6.7 kg, but in fact for a standard two thousandth, it will be somewhat rough.
If you are fishing from your own boat, then in this case it is quite important to take the unhook with you.
Many experts pay special attention to this feature of the lure. Fishermen that used the spinner "Kastmaster", reviews remain very positive. You can use it without any difficulty to catch a variety of predatory fish not only in freshwater but also in saltwater, such advantage of this product is due to the fact that the spinner is able to perfectly mimic bait, which is the main kind of food for almost every predator. Therefore, as the spinner for ASP "Kastmaster" is ideal, featuring a fairly large cast and at the same time, having a good imitation.
By itself, bait is characterized by a rather interesting and measured game of medium intensity. If fast enough winding is used, it will come to the surface fairly quickly, despite the fact that in fact it is rather massive and heavy. Due to this, you can do quite an effective wiring in the widest range of depths and speeds. In this case, if the parameters of the bait do not change, you can catch even at a depth of 10 meters near the surface, using only the most distant casts. This is quite important in the process of finding fish. Regardless of how fast the wiring of the “Kastmaster” spinners is carried out by you, it will attract the predatory fish well and provoke its attack.
How is the wiring done?
As mentioned above, such spinners are extremely simple and easy to throw. If necessary, extra-casting "Kastmaster" -lesna with their own hands can be thrown at a horizontal angle of about 25-40 degrees. If necessary, it will be possible to change the angle of the throw within these limits, depending on how strong the wind is and in which direction it is directed. Likewise, the selection of the fishing line is adjusted, that is, with a strong wind, it is best to use a braid with a thickness of about 0.15 mm, while in other situations it will be optimal to use standard equipment.
With the fall
Posting "with the fall" - a fairly common option among many people who use "Kastmaster" spoon. How to choose a lure in this case is not so important.
This technology is a similar option compared to jig baits, although there are certain differences, as in the process of posting with a fall of bite, certain drops of spinners can be observed at the moment of free fall. Poklev is determined in accordance with the change in fishing line sagging or in accordance with the tip of the rod depending on the particular situation.
In the majority of cases, the first phase of any wiring is exactly the free fall directly after a cast. Then the line is hoisted at high speed in order to raise the abandoned lure at the next starting level. Then the lure starts up again in a controlled free fall and this cycle repeats. It would be best to use this option when fishing is carried out at a depth of more than two meters.
Technology "lifting" is a similar option compared to the so-called American wiring. In this case, you need to wait for the predator's grip, carrying out a controlled rise of the bait from the water column. A bite can be determined by the degree of bending of the tip of the rod or the sensations of the hand in which this rod is held.
After the bait falls to the bottom or a certain depth horizon, you can choose the slack of the fishing line. Then the tip of the tip smoothly rises upwards, until it reaches approximately an angle of 40-50 degrees relative to the horizon, and you can lift it slowly or quickly depending on how deep the lure was abandoned, how strong the current is, and also on the bite activity . Only then cutting is carried out.
How is cutting made?
The autosubset must be carried out by moving the average power from the final lifting position up or slightly to the side. In the predominant majority of cases, immediately after the ascent occurs, cutting is carried out without a break, after which the rod returns to its standard position and the fisherman waits until the spoon goes down to the bottom or a certain horizon. It is worth noting that in the process of returning the rod, when fishing from the bottom, the fishing line can be completely thrown off the spool, while when fishing at a certain depth horizon, it should be dragged about one or two turns. Then all these actions are repeated.
It is worth noting the fact that if you are fishing on a certain depth horizon, after the winding, you will need to wait until the lure will independently determine the slack.
How effective is it?
Many believe the use of such transactions is most effective for spinners of this type, as it can be used regardless of the conditions in that case, if the depth is less than one meter. Conduct uniform wiring in this case can also be carried out in almost any conditions, if the depth is not more than five meters.
Combined wiring involves the use of a variety of combinations and options with a fall, rise, or uniform wiring, which in this case will be one. Here, the fisherman must understand that the effectiveness of the combination is directly dependent on the effectiveness of its components, and if the bite is carried out only in a particular phase, then the rest should be simply excluded.
