The chain was lengthened and the bowl pushed back

Now in spring you’ll have to “poke” scammers and shy away from approaching motorboats … Features of the current spring fishing.
Actually, the article was supposed to talk about fishing on the spring river and its features. But now this fishing will resemble a certain operation, which in Russia is called “tyry”. Now we will “fish” the fish, sitting on the banks of the river, which has already become a native, since we come here from childhood and there are many memories associated with these places.

The new fishing law, of course, pleased us with the promise of free fishing on all water bodies except for the property of the Ministry of Defense, aquaculture facilities and nature reserves. Like, from the beginning of 2021, go wherever you want, throw gear too wherever you want. But for some reason, this is not joyful. Raising fines to 2-5 thousand, in some cases up to 300 thousand, right up to the criminal article, taking away swimming equipment gives fish protection inspectors serious rights that can be used at will and somewhat freely. In addition, there is material interest. If there was a plan for detoxification, but the Ministry of Internal Affairs still has it. I remember that last summer, servicemen went near grocery stores, took pictures of those who, in the heat, decided to quench their thirst with a jar of cold beer at the exit from the store, put them in a car and took them to the department. So I drank beer … True, we talked quite normally with the guys from the police department, they never wrote out a fine and didn’t send it. It was evident that they did not voluntarily dangle around the shops. I ask them, they say, the plan must be implemented? Like good old times? “Yes,” they answer. – Nothing changed”.

There is a fear that fisheries supervision will also need to carry out an order for fines and money.
And then for bream less than a centimeter long, they will now have the right to fine and select, for example, the feeder, since we are talking about spring fishing. Not bad? A couple and five thousand can be fined. In a poor country …

It is clear that fish stocks must be preserved
But why are the state and government struggling with law-abiding amateur fishermen? Why so far our rivers and lakes are knocked out with electric currents right up to the complete extermination of fish. Why is nowhere heard of trials over them? Probably because, firstly, it is difficult to catch electric rods, and the amateur fisherman is not hiding, he is in sight. And secondly, according to one huntsman from a forest village, officials and law enforcement officers often hunt for this dirty business, who need to shock with electric shock and collect fish, how many are gathered, boil ears. Let the rest rot …

Now about bream
On the forest rivers, by the way, knocked out by electric rods, and on the city river there are not many large bream. And the scavenger in the size of 24 centimeters is quite a commodity fish, which is very well dried. She is salting normally. But such a scammer is prohibited. The size of the bream should be 25 cm, in some places – 27 cm. But sometimes the scavenger is not caught in the permitted size. And on our city river it’s generally difficult to catch such a scammer. You can understand the allowed size of pike – 32 cm, at least in the rules of our region this figure is indicated. Less than these 32 cm pike already – “lace”, “squint”. The same applies to zander, the permitted size of which is 40 cm. These predators usually come across already quite large, and the “children” must be released. But the scavenger is 24 cm long … And they measure it from the snout with the mouth closed to the meat on the tail, to eat to the base of the central rays of the fin. And add the tail itself here. It will turn out quite a decent fish. No, everything is clear, on the Volga open spaces these conditions are easier to observe. On a small river, the size of the fish is not the same. It’s like with aquarium fish. The smaller the volume of the aquarium, the smaller the inhabitants. Or take, for example, a crucian pond. In one, dwarf crucians live, and in the other, crucian carp grow to a kilogram of weight and more. Every year, carp-buffalo weighing up to two kilos rise from the Volga, and in some Akashevo crucian carp weighing three hundred grams is considered large (where and how to catch crucian carp in early spring).
