Who can be caught in early spring

What fish can become prey in early April? What and where to catch? Nozzles, bait, bait.

The period of early spring is the time that can be called off-season. Why? It seems to be already open water and the fish should move, feed. During this period, the bulk of the fish still adapt to new conditions. Moreover, cold still winter-winter water fights off appetite not only in fish of the cyprinid family, but perches, too, have not yet been taken. Only fish that move to spawn at this time, rising to the upper reaches, have a bite on the go and again move against the current that is quite strong at that time. But this spring move is usually short-lived and you still have to get to it for sure to take your soul out in fishing.

So what kind of fish can become prey in early April?
First of all, worms on your fishing rods will be ruffling ruffles, especially in the evening twilight. And this is to some extent not bad. From a ruff, an excellent ear is obtained, especially if you cook a ruff with another fish in the form of a double or triple fish soup. What double ear, if nothing else bites? No need to rush.

During this period, a large dace is often quite actively caught. This is probably the earliest fish on a small river, which may be of interest as an object of amateur fishing, and not the smallest object. Yelets are usually caught with bottom gear – a feeder, fishing rods, and snacks. It is better to put a braided cord with a diameter of 0.14 millimeters on the feeder coil and adopt a rectangular feeder weighing 100 grams. It is best to use a rubber shock absorber – feedergam. This will prevent clipping and shooting leashes and feeders. If a heavier feeder is required due to the strong current, it is better to put the cord with a thickness of 0.16-0.18 millimeters. Fluorocarbon 0.2 mm thick is suitable for leashes, hooks – No. 4-5 of our numbering. As a bait, you can use the finished mixture for cyprinids. It is better to choose bait for cold water, since the water temperature is still almost winter. Filler can be “Salapino porridge.” It is advisable to add a little chopped worms, small maggot or bloodworms to the bait. Worms, bloodworms and maggots are usually bait for catching dace. It is better to make “sandwiches” from these bait. In order for the bait to have a fresh look, it is possible to plant an artificial bloodworm and maggot into the bait, treating them with the dip “Maggot” and “Bloodworm” before casting.

Yelets, especially large ones, keep on quite a strong current and prefer places with an uneven current, oncoming jets and on the border of a fast current with a reverse current or coastal quiet water. If you choose the right place, bait and bait, then the catch of a large dace can be quite weighty.

In deep whirlpools with a backward flow, prey and floats can become prey for a fishing rod. Bite is also an early fish, but it is well caught at this time only on the surface of the pits, where the spring sun warmed the water.

Towards evening, as already mentioned, ruffians can start pecking at the donks. And although these fish are not large, they are a great bait for burbot. This is also potential prey in the early spring. Moreover, in a good place where there is a lot of burbot, night fishing, in addition to romantic impressions, can bring good prey, because burbot and especially its liver are a real delicacy in the ear. Burbot takes at night, and its first bites usually begin at about 21 hours. The most intense bite of this nocturnal predator is about 23 hours. By morning, the burbot stops taking.
