Late autumn and the behavior of predatory fish
Features of catching predatory fish in the late autumn. Information about how behaves any predatory fish in the fall, and how it can be used for successful fishing.
Late autumn is a spinning enthusiast for a very interesting time. Unlike the beginning of autumn, when predatory fish are more or less evenly placed over the entire area of reservoirs, with the onset of frost predators mainly kept in deep areas, or adjacent to wintering holes. If not begin to move to the places of wintering fish.
Especially visible this migration in small rivers, which are practically not suitable for wintering big fish. Thus, by the beginning of freeze-up is not staying with the predator, except that the small perch.
Where should I look for predatory fish in late autumn?
The predators before the winter almost always stick to the same places. When fishing for predatory fishes should pay attention to the lower portions of tributaries or areas near their mouths. Before the start of the ice cover such areas are considered the most promising.
Predator can be found, if you look where splashing Malek. Even if the predators are not here permanently, we come here to feed. Fry if the water surface is not visible, it is possible to begin with it is necessary to catch the deep places.
On large rivers often there are areas with two or three holes, between which a deep “watering”. To ledostava fish can stay not only within pits, but also on such “watering” to a depth of 2 to 5 meters.
Stranded predator may go in Sunny weather, when the fish came to the shore. Then from the depths, strangely enough, go and perch, and pike.
The time of catching of predatory fish in late autumn
Biting at this time of the year better in the morning and in the evening, it makes no sense to rush on the river by dawn. The most active bite occurs on 9 — 12 noon, then pecks from 3 to 6 o’clock in the afternoon. The only exception is Zander – he may bite until dark, until about 8-9 PM. But the perch and pike at dusk the hunt is stopped.
Tackle for catching predatory fish in late autumn
For late autumn fishing and spinning, and the reel can be used are the same as in the summer. Is what to take more powerful rod. Good to use a braided line 0,15-0,18 mm thick and 5 kg, in order to save the bait in case of a hook, and, of course, to get almost any fish.
When fishing for predator use of the reins is necessary. It is no secret that any thing will aggravate the game of bait and reduce the number of bites. But it is better to get one bite in and get a predator, than to see two or three bites and not pull a single one.
The leads are the fish, for example pike, not very alarming. Even if the angler catches on “spoons”, in clear water, when the leash is often enough used thick strings. However, the pike out of the water behind the lure and is actively attacking her.
But when fishing in clear water on live bait, the availability of the leash makes a difference. Malek often unnatural moves, and the predator enough time to consider the leash.
Among leashes are popular tungsten thin, tensile load which is 3-4 kg. Tungsten leashes can be equipped with carbines and Berlusconi, or simply with eyelets. Buying leashes with loops, note that you cannot connect a metal leash directly with any scaffold, but through the barrel or crown ring.
Bait for catching predatory fish in late autumn
After the predator is gone to deep places, the use of conventional oscillating spinners — “nezatseplyayki” becomes difficult. To hold spoons, weighing 20-25 grams, and at 5-6 meters depth, but it is of little use. It is much easier to use some jig lures “poranki” or “rubber”, which is much smaller hooks and breakages than when fishing on spinners.
Fishing at great depths, especially in pits and often means that you need to catch will be among the driftwood and other hooks. In such places it is better not to use montages of baits in the usual way on the doubles, because every throw will end a hook.
You can use hooks with safety wire loop or to apply the installation with offset hooks, the bait in this case is “nezatseplyayki” almost before the first bite of pike.
Not save and hooks with wire safety loop through which you can pass only the first snag. After that snag the shackle is opened, the result becomes the second snag hook. Therefore, to catch these on lures in snag places much pointless. Only where snags a bit, they will be workable.
Color preferences of a predator in late autumn versatile. Each reservoir will need to try dozens of colors to find the one that taste the pike today. Experiments usually start with yellow, white, green, red, and then try different combinations.
The size of the lure is preferably medium. Large bait worth taking, only if it is known that there is a “?”.
Late autumn is considered a fertile season for fishermen. Predator concentrated in small areas, and if you get to a good place, it is possible to count on a decent catch
