Fishing for predatory fish. River – tyrant. Fishing report walleye, Perch, Pike, Chub, Vertical trolling on Tastrophy. ru

Not only that in bycatch often come across and perches and somata in this type of fishing, so often it happens that the pike grabs the hook when lifting tackle with klyunuvshih fish. Ie he grabs the hook is not in the bottom layer and where it is at 3-4 meters from the bottom.

Especially because predatory fish often prey on shoals of small fish flocks not only raznoobraznymi representatives of the same species, but also together with members of another species.One of a kind almost does not drop in near-bottom water layer(ASP, sabrefish, Volga herring, etc) and the other rarely rises to the top(pike, somata, deep bass. ). And it turns out I only catch in the bottom layer when fishing in a plumb line… And why not try to hunt and in multiple layers. Yes it is easy.
Usually the rod I have to plumb oborudovana fishing line 0.4. Prefer fishing line. Why? Fishing is usually to plumb the depths of 4 m and up to 15. And the bottom usually far from ideal… Driftwood and rubbish at the bottom enough… And this stuff is often all the fish and sitting. Continue reading
