Catching bream on a donkey with a feeder is a method that has been tested for decades. To date, tackle is the most budgetary solution that allows a novice fisherman to count on a decent catch.

Where to catch?

How to catch bream on donka? Tackle trainingBream on Donka bite well in lakes and reservoirs with standing water. However, tackle can also be used when fishing in rivers, using more weighty feeders and viscous bait, which will not be immediately washed off by the current.

What does the tackle consist of?

How to make donka on bream? The construction of the device is simple enough and consists of:

The entire set can be purchased in any market or in a specialized tackle shop. With a strong desire, a donkey with a feeding trough on a bream is easily collected from a long-abandoned fishing well.

To prepare the donka, first you need to pick up a reliable rod. The best fit is a lightweight and durable fiberglass spinning rod that can withstand the weight of the feeder, filled with bait. A good option will be an old rod or spinning with a broken top that will hold the weight of the rigging from 40 to 100 grams.

It is recommended to give preference to inertialless models, where more than 100 m of fishing line is placed. It is advisable to purchase a coil with a friction brake. When catching the donkey for the main time, the fisherman has to wait peacefully for a bite. Therefore, a cheap model of medium size is suitable as a coil.

There is no particular difference in thickness during catching on the donk. A line with a cross section of about 0.2-0.35 mm is sufficient. Making a change of fishing line may require fishing in a strong current. The dependence is obvious. The stronger the flow, the thinner the line should be selected.

Donka on the bream in the summer must be placed with the trough, which simultaneously acts as a container for bait and plays the role of a sinker. It is better to give preference to products in which the bait will be reliably retained even in the strongest current.

Bream is bred on donka in calm reservoirs with a feeder of almost any geometry. However, to retain the gear at the bottom of a stormy river requires a heavy square or triangular construction.

Professionals advise choosing a small hook on the bream, which can be easily masked with bait or hidden in a bait. However, what is good for catching small fish is completely ineffective when cutting a large fish.

To find the golden mean, it is enough to use the following recommendations:

  • If a nozzle is used as a nozzle, the best option is hooks measuring 14-16.
  • It is convenient to plant the wax on several times at the hooks No. 10-14.
  • To catch bream on donka, when using as a nozzle pearl barley or corn, it is necessary to take hooks in size from 8 to 14.
  • For the worm, products with a long pointed fore-end No. 6-10 will do.

Bite alarm

In order to receive timely information about the bite, it is better to use a small bell or electronic device. Much depends on personal preferences and financial opportunities.


Bream bream on Donku in pools with standing water is convenient, if you use several alternative options for tackle:

  1. The zakidushka is used for catching near the shore. A relatively short piece of fishing line is enough for the rigging. The sinker can both be at the end of the tackle, and freely move on the rubber stopper. A similar type of donkey is attached to a peg placed on the shore, and the bite is determined by the movement of the bell.
  2. Eraser allows you to quickly catch large amounts of fish in the presence of a good bite. To the sinker on a rubber band, a fishing line is attached, on which are placed leashes with hooks up to 10 pieces. Like the donkey-zakidushka, is attached to the shore.


Why is the Donka still in demand among avid anglers, despite the appearance of more sophisticated adaptations? Explain this can be obvious advantages of such gear, among which is worth noting the possibility of catching at an impressive distance, excellent biting control, fishing in stagnant and turbulent water bodies with simultaneous feeding of fish.

However, there are a number of restrictions that prevent the effective use of donkeys for catching bream. First of all, it is not recommended to throw tackle on areas saturated with vegetation and driftwood. Absolutely useless adaptation when fishing, which lives in mountain rivers or feeds near the surface of the water.

Features of catching

To catch a bream on donka, it is necessary to work a little. To begin with, a bait is mixed, which is generously irrigated with water and consumed for half an hour. The depth in the selected area is measured. For this purpose it is convenient to use special marker floats.

The starting zakrym is carried out, which consists in performing a series of consecutive casting of the fishing rod with the feeder. As soon as the tackle touches the bottom surface, a sharp cut is made and the fishing line is pulled back.

After bait they go directly to fishing. The feeder is more densely filled with bait, the rig is thrown, the line is stretched, the bug detector is installed, and the rod is placed on the stand. If after 20 minutes there is complete silence, you should reboot the tackle to a new location, repeating the above sequence of actions.
