Types of raking

Simple and affordable tackle for amateur crayfish. Catching crayfish, of course, is not fishing, but also causes excitement, besides crayfish – a valuable and healthy dietary product. In addition, there are professional catchers. These traders supply crayfish to restaurants and other catering establishments.

But here we are not talking about the industrial procurement of crayfish, but only about simple and affordable tackle for an amateur crayfish who needs a certain amount of these arthropods for an evening dinner in close company with a mug or two cold beer and boiled crayfish.

Unlike in the past, when it was impossible to buy at least some albeit branded gear for fishing, now everything is available in stores, including various rakolovki. And if not in stores, then you can order in the online store. The main thing is to know what to order.

Good rakolovki put in the right place and on the right bait can bring quite weighty prey, and more than once. The main thing is to know the measure and follow the rules that are available for crayfish fishers.

Types of raking

How to make a simple rakolovka
The simplest rakolovka that can be done right on the pond while resting or fishing is a piece of net stretched on some wire frame found on the shore or even on the simplest frame of willow rods. It is only necessary to firmly connect the corners of this improvised frame. It does not hurt to add additional reinforcement elements by putting a couple more rods crosswise inside the frame and also tie them tightly to the main frame. As a grid, you can even use a piece of a Chinese network hanging somewhere on the bushes. Such fragments are often found after a spring flood. If suddenly a wire for the frame is at hand, then the finished primitive raking should not be loaded, provided that the wire is massive and heavy. If the frame is made of branches, then in the center you need to fix a piece of brick, wrapping it with a twine. The fishing line will not go, the cargo will slip out. It remains only to put fish in the center of the rakolovka, also grab it with a string in the net and you can throw our home-made rakolovka to the place where, according to the assumptions, the crayfish should be found. From time to time it is necessary to check the tackle, as the crayfish trapped in the trap will periodically be removed from our primitive rakolovki. Crayfish fishing usually occurs at night. Therefore, you need a good flashlight.
