The fishing club has been known for over eight decades, but only recently this gear, having to undergo a series of improvements began to meet the demands of professionals. Fishing this way can be in stagnant ponds and on the river with a mild current. With the construction of numerous hydraulic structures and the formation of relatively large reservoirs fishing club in our country was quite extensive.
Being a floating tackle, it has a great advantage over other species. Drifting downstream, the circle encounters fish stops, quickly detects prey - catfish, pike and carp, accelerating the bite. Ten or fifteen gear disbanded by a fisherman in the right place, with active fishing give a very good catch, leaving a truly unforgettable impression.
A circle is a fairly primitive construction. It is a disk made, as a rule, from light wood species - pine, spruce, alder, linden, etc. with a diameter of thirteen - fifteen centimeters and a thickness of about thirty millimeters. On the circumference of the circle is a protruded groove for winding the line. The disc planes can have a slight oval - from one to three millimeters - and rounded edges. The upper side, which is usually painted in red, has two "cuts", intended for plant fishing line during charging. In the center of the mug there is a hole for the stick.
The latter should be round with a subtle base and ovoid or spherical head. The length of her wand equal to the diameter of the circle with thickness of not more than fourteen millimeters. The thin end has a slit for a fishing line.
Mugs must be painted with oil paint, made on natural varnish. One side is covered with a bright red or orange color, the other with a stick - white.
The circle is caught during two periods of open water. The first coincides with the opening of the summer season. As a rule, in the middle part of our country it begins from the first decade of June and lasts until mid-July. The second coincides with the calendar "women's summer" and ends only with the first strong frosts - harbingers of the appearance of the first ice on the reservoirs.
Catching in a circle in the summer, in June, is primarily aimed at a predator. Prey can be handsome pike-perch, pike, catfish, etc. Mugs in the summer are placed closer to the shore, near the coastal reeds or sedge, near the lush thickets. Zywiec thus descends about half the water. This is due to the fact that in hot weather at great depths due to lack of oxygen, it may be lost in twenty minutes. Very well is the summer fishing in a circle in those places where there are supposedly a large number of snags, a dewdrop, and in general, where the bottom is cluttered.
Best in this period is the pike. In ponds and standing lakes from the first of July comes her zhor. It is quite intense, because after spawning a toothy predator is very hungry.
Fishing club fall mainly target walleye and perch. Fishing for the most suitable deep reaches of reservoirs and lakes. For small reservoirs, average depth is about two meters, where predators often continue to feed in coastal zones, groups are not used. The reason is that they probably have nowhere to turn, and autumn water very loudly takes all the noise from the boats of fisherman, thereby nastorajivaet and scaring the prey. Thus, in anticipation of the Golden autumn days should focus on catching pike, Zander or other predatory inhabitants of the underworld in the vast reaches of reservoirs and lakes.
Pike, for example, during autumn zhory, and even in an unfamiliar place, with the help of a mug to find much easier than in the summer season, because this predator mainly concentrates only on certain areas. It hunts, as a rule, during this period only in the bottom layers, and therefore the worker descent of the mug with the live bait should be oriented precisely to this circumstance.
The fishing of this fish in mugs is a fairly old way. And the fact that it is still a priority for many professionals, suggests that this is a fairly effective method. Catching catfish on a circle refers to a passive type of fishing. That is, there is no need for vigilant tracking of tackle and constant sweeps. It's enough just to put the mugs on the pond and watch from the shore or the boat from afar behind which one will turn over to take the prey and throw it away.
As is known, the catfish live mainly in large rivers and large canals, where there is a current. And this is a big problem for fishing on regular mugs. The current is a great obstacle to fishing. Of course, today there are many artificial reservoirs, in the standing waters of which this fish also lives, but the professionals nevertheless found an outlet that allows to catch on mugs on fast water.
As a bait during catching catfish on a circle, you can use not only its traditional species, but also frogs or rotten meat. Those who stop their choice on bait, you need to know that they are planting it across the back on large single hooks.
Fishing with a circle from the shore in still water differs from fishing in the for the fact that in the latter case the tackle does not hold the load, and started up in free swimming. And she, rafting on the water, she finds prey. In addition to soma, the circle perfectly caught pike or perch, so do not be surprised if putting a "trap" for one fish, in it you will find very different. By the way, for such predators as catfish or pike need to put a long metal leashes.
This fish takes little care of the quality of food, because it is satisfied with everything that it will get. Carp is very cautious and fearful, besides, he is extremely suspicious of any noise. In order to catch this fish successfully, the fisherman must apply a special, "tricky" tackle. And it is her circle. He greatly benefits from the feeding of predatory fish, for example pike or catfish. But it is in the case of carp that this tackle provides a rich catch.
Fisherman will help first of all its noiselessness. With such a tackle, such a shy prey will not be noticed by a hunter, and consequently, the fish have no reason to give up the pleasure of trying the nozzle. Catching a carp on a circle is also good because the shy fish does not notice and does not hear the angler, as casting is almost noiseless.
Fishing from the shore
Charging the tackle, the angler sends her to the chosen place and waits for bites. In particularly hot days carp often rise closer to the surface, so they can easily be caught from the shore on top. In this case, experienced anglers remove the sinker, and hook the crust of bread, soaked in sunflower oil. Such a nozzle easily floats on the surface, so from the shore you can easily see an inverted bug on the upturned mug. Sometimes the signal is a splash of prey that grabs the nozzle.
Catching a carp on a circle has several characteristics. The main one is not to use more than two hooks on one mug. After all, three bites at the same time never happen. But with a large number of hooks, the tackle is always confused.
When fishing for carp on a circle of well-established corn, better – preserved. The hook should stick to two or three. In this sting should be left open slightly to reduce the number of empty bites.
Some actual "circle" prefer to catch on peas. Prepare this nozzle in advance, about the night before fishing, pouring croup into a container and filling with boiling water. Peas are also planted one or two pieces, and the stinger is also left slightly open.
Tackles for fishing this fish are used in a variety of ways. The main ones are the bottom ones, for example, a feeder, a carp or a simple grandfather's donkey, and, of course, such a conventional fishing rod.
But for some time now, the autumn catching of the crucian carp began to spread. In the summer and until the middle of October, when the nights are gradually getting colder, in priority there is such a nozzle as worms or maggots. Carp at this time, excellent pecking, because, feeling the approach of winter abstinence, seeks plenty to eat with proteins with carbohydrates.
Catching of pikeperch
Mugs fishing for this fish are equipped with mainly the same as for pike. The only exceptions are the hooks. The best option for walleye tee is considered the seventh to the fifth room, the same size as the double and finally a single tip No. 2-1. Leash for this production uses a short, metallic, made of wire with a diameter of 0,2-0,3 millimeters. By itself, the pike, despite his sharp teeth, never cut nylon fishing line. However, in the process catching him often at mugs pike. That is why to insure the presence of a metal leash desirable.
In places where there are many snags, the angler must hurry with the trip and with the conclusion of the production, otherwise it risks to the ragged line and lose the fish. On the hook this predator behaves surprisingly briskly. It began with the pull cord, although it soon gets tired, but because without difficulty comes close to the boat.
Small pike-perch, like perches, keep flocks. Therefore, for the first bite and a pivot, the second, and often even two or three, can quickly follow. After intense angling, there may sometimes be a lull. At this time, the fishermen put in order the gear, charging and re-arranging the mugs. This calm can also be used to find another place. If catching on mugs passes along old channels of the rivers or ditches, you need to find the depth of their continuation.
When fishing in water bodies that have a flat bottom, especially in calm and with weak biting, it is better to divide the gear into two groups, setting them at a distance of one hundred meters from each other. This facilitates faster detection of predatory prey. In this case, as soon as the "overturns" begin, you should group the circles in one - the best place.
