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.
Advantages of the method
Being a floating tackle, it has a great advantage over other species. Going with the flow, the circle runs into the fish camps, quickly discovers prey - catfish, pike and crucian carcasses, accelerating the bite. Ten or fifteen gear, let loose by the angler in the right place, with active fishing give a very good catch, leaving a truly unforgettable impression.
A circle is a rather primitive construction. This is a disc made, as a rule, from light wood species - pine, spruce, alder, linden, etc., with a diameter of thirteen to fifteen centimeters and a thickness of about thirty millimeters. Along the circumference of the circle is made grooved groove for winding fishing line. The planes of the discs may have a slight oval — from one to three millimeters — and rounded edges. The upper side, which is usually painted in red, has two “cut-outs” intended for planting the fishing line during charging. In the center of the mug there is a hole for the wand.
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 should be painted with oil paint made on natural linseed oil. One side is covered in bright red or orange, the other with a stick - white.
The circle is caught for 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 "Indian summer" and ends only with the first strong frosts - the forerunners of the appearance of the first ice on the waters.
Catching a circle in the summer, in June, is primarily aimed at the predator. The prey may be handsome perch, pike, catfish, etc. In summer, circles are placed closer to the shore, near the coastal reeds or sedges, near the lilies thickets. Zhivets when this falls about half a year. This is explained by the fact that in hot weather at great depths, due to a lack of oxygen, it can die in twenty minutes. Summer fishing for a circle goes very well in those places where there are supposedly a large number of snags, snag, and generally where the bottom is cluttered.
Best of all during this period comes pike. In the ponds and standing lakes from the first days of July there comes its zhor. It is quite intense, because after spawning, the toothed predator can be 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 the autumn zhora, and even in an unfamiliar place, is much easier to find with the help of a mug than in the summer season, since this predator mainly concentrates only on certain areas. She hunts, as a rule, during this period only in the bottom layers, and therefore the working descent of the bait circle should be oriented precisely to this circumstance.
Getting this fish to mugs is a rather old way. And the fact that it is still a priority for many professionals indicates that this is a fairly effective method. Catching catfish per circle refers to the passive form of fishing. That is, vigilant tracking of tackle and constant cuttings are not required. It is enough just to arrange the circles around the pond and watch from the shore or boat from a distance which one of them will turn over to remove the prey and reset it.
As is well known, catfish mainly lives in large rivers and large canals where there is a current. And this is a big problem for ordinary mugs. For a great way interferes with fishing. Of course, today there are many artificial reservoirs, in the stagnant waters of which this fish also lives, but the professionals nevertheless found a way out that allows them to fish for fast water.
You can use not only its traditional species, but also frogs or rotten meat as bait during a catfish catch. Those who stop their choice on bait need to know that they are pushing it over their backs onto 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 cares little about the quality of food, because it is content with everything that it comes across. Carp is very cautious and fearful, besides, he is extremely suspicious of any noise. In order to catch this fish successfully, the angler needs to apply a special, “cunning” tackle. And that is the circle. He strongly helps with the burning of predatory fish, such as pike or catfish. But it is in the case of carp that this tackle provides a rich catch.
The angler will be helped first of all by its noiselessness. With such tackle, such shy prey will not notice the hunter, and consequently, the fish have no reason to refuse the pleasure of trying the nozzle. Catching a carp on a circle is also good because this shy fish does not notice or hear the angler, since the cast is almost silent.
Shooting from the shore
Having loaded the tackle, the angler sends it to the chosen place and waits for bites. On 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 fishermen remove the sinker, and a hook of bread soaked in sunflower oil is hooked onto a hook. Such a nozzle easily floats on the surface, so it is easy to see a bite from the bank upside down from the shore. Sometimes the signal is a splash of prey that has seized the nozzle.
Catching carp on a circle has several features. The main one is not to use more than two hooks on one mug. After all, three poklevok at the same time never happens. But with a large number of hooks tackle tends to constantly be 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 real "circle mates" prefer to catch on peas. It is necessary to prepare this nozzle in advance, approximately for a night before fishing, having filled up grain in capacity and the gulf with boiling water. Peas also sit on one or two pieces, and the sting is also left slightly open.
Tackles for fishing of this fish use the most various. The main ones are bottom ones, for example, a feeder, a carp or a simple grandfather's donk, and, of course, such a familiar float rod.
But for some time now, autumnal fishing for a crucian circle also began to spread. In the summer and until mid-October, when the nights are gradually getting colder, a nozzle such as worms or maggots is a priority. The crucian carped at this time perfectly, because, feeling the approach of winter abstinence, it tends to eat enough proteins with carbohydrates.
Pike perch fishing
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 perch, are kept in packs. Therefore, the second bite and the flip can quickly be followed by the second, and often even two or three. After an intense walk, there may sometimes be a lull. At this time, the fishermen put the gear in order, loading and re-arranging the circles. This calm can also be used to search for another place. If fishing for circles goes along the old river beds or ditches, then you need to find a depth gauge of their continuation.
When fishing on reservoirs that have an even bottom, especially in calm weather and with weak fishing, it is better to split the tackle into two groups, setting them at a distance of one hundred meters from each other. This contributes to faster detection of predatory prey. At the same time, as soon as the “inverters” begin, the circles should be grouped in one - the best place.
