With the onset of autumn roach gathers in large flocks, but not in order to as a perch, to hunt for fry, and to find comfortable and cormen place.
To catch decent size roach becomes difficult, but attractive.
Interesting fishing or on a float in the small lakes or rivers, or fishing easy, to 20 g, picker in large reservoirs. If the pond there is a roach weighing 400 g or more, and the banks there is almost no riparian vegetation, it makes sense to use when fishing tackle. Roach in the deep waters of the career type in this time of the year almost completely on bottom food and rarely rises in half-waters or close to shore. For optimum use of light picker with the softest tip-switch.
Snap includes feeder, weighing about 10 g and single hook No. 18-22. Preferred fishing line sinking and hard, with a diameter from 0.12 to 0.16 mm. as the main you can use a sinking braid with a diameter of 0.06-0.08 mm. Than the fishing line is thinner and tougher, the more likely it is transmitted by bite. The design of the feeder is not essential, it is only important that the hook is in close proximity to the bait on a leash with a length of 5-100 cm, the Length of the leash is determined by the activity of the fish and fishing skills.
Specialized feeders for maggots or bloodworms allow you to lure the point of fishing more effectively and more economically. One fishing enough about 200 g small moth or a glass of maggots. The hook is preferably set with a straight bend with a normal length of the forearm. The size of the hook for maggots and bloodworms No. 16-20, caddis and worm No. 10-16 (deep fall there are times when a big roach prefer small manure worm). Caddis to find quite easily fall in streams. In lakes caddis worm descends to a depth of 1.5-2 meters, where to get it difficult.
Need a little bit of bait, but very high quality, with bloodworms. Of flavors can work anise and thyme. If the fish well and quickly responds to the bait, she’s not scared of the feeders, then the leash should be short. But most of the roach is hesitant to come closer to an extraneous object, and after casting technique applies a kind of bottom posting. It is as follows: after the trough sank to the bottom, the angler waits about a minute and very slowly drags a snap-on bottom for a distance equal to the length of the leash. Then the baited hook falls right on top of the selection of bait and feeder is not scary lazy fish. Pulling useful, and when caught without feeders.
Roach, unlike bream and carp, are not inclined to dig into the silt or “extract” the bloodworms, sunken between the rocks or among the particles of plant debris. She only takes the bait, which is in a comfortable position. It is noticed that as bait when the fishing is preferable 3-4 pieces of small maggots then fish catches are much larger.
In a small shallow ponds and lakes, and in rivers roach concentrates on the deep border of riparian vegetation. After all, maggots have nowhere else to hide except in the dying vegetation, and small crustaceans are concentrated here as long as will remain acceptable for the life of the regime. At the edge of riparian vegetation roach profitable catch or the usual float rod, or a plug with a short snap.
For fishing with a float rod you need to choose a place with a hole near the shore, or a smooth table with a depth of a meter and a half smaller than the maximum depth of the reservoir. Very good seats near the dam-dams. In saprogenic ponds are also interesting areas near the channel. The tackle consists of the outer flight feathers of the rod with a thin, polistim tip. The rod should provide an accurate snap-throw the lightest weight of 0.5 g. Monofilament of 0.06-0.08 mm, small “okleechnuyu” float with carrying capacity of 0.2-0.5 g, most several of small pellets and thin hook № 20-22. The leash is better to make long, up to half a meter, to lure in the moth or the maggot slowly fell down in the water column. Bloodworms should be changed as often as possible.
As any good bait base mix with the addition of bloodworms in the amount of 100 g per 100 g of bait. Bait in the amount of two hundred-three hundred grams is usually enough for 2-3 hours of fishing. If the angler has a good command of the technique of feeding, it makes sense to lure pure bloodworms. For the bloodworms I put in any dishes, topped up the water and leave for ten minutes-twenty, that is, the time spent on preparation of fishery. A slurry of bloodworms and water should be a consistency to be able to take it in my hand and throw it in the point of fishing. The colder the water becomes, the more effectively works the bait, consisting of handfuls of bloodworms and one or two handfuls of earth. This time of year a flock of roach virtually no moves on the water, and unwanted bait can alert the fish. She’s not going anywhere, but the bite will stop.
Bite, as a rule, careful and slow, I would even say, lazy. Characteristically, after careful bite bloodworm on the hook remains essentially intact, and the angler with coarse tackle creates the impression that fish in this place just yet.
The technique lies in the fact that I throw a snap to the point of fishing, keep the line tight until the float does not take its working position. Then lowered the rod tip to the water surface and wait 10-20 seconds. If the bite is not followed, it pertubative snap, each time changing the moth in fresh. If the wind and surface currents demolished tooling weighing up to half a gram, then you need to apply the plug.
Efficiency of catching roach autumn (and summer, too) plug in comparison with mahovym rod I approximately estimate the ratio of 20 to 1. The plug allows you to use a snap weight of 0.15 g at a depth of catching up to 2 meters. However, we have to use fishing line with a diameter of 0.05-0.06 mm, when well-matched rubber damper and fishing techniques allow to cope with roach to a pound.
Plug rod allows you to hold the light snap with a bait on the point of catching, perform falling slowly for the transaction. For catching “autumn” roach enough to use as a shock absorber rubber with a diameter of 0.8 mm or less. Nice, modern monofilament with diameter of 0.06 mm is combined with a shock absorber made of rubber with a diameter of 0.65 mm will easily cope with roach weighing up to 300 g.
Snap design is rather primitive, because it uses very small floats, and hence very small sinkers. Most near to the hook sinker is better to place them on the line not closer than 30 cm the Following sinker, which is two times heavier, is placed at a distance slightly greater than the distance from the first sinker to the hook. A third sinker of equal weight to the second, at the distance of about half a meter from the second.
The most effective posting during the autumn fishing of roach is the transaction with the falling bait. After dropping the snap in the water, your first place is the hardest, the top weight, then middle, and lower. All this time the bait falls in the water with almost natural speed. If the bite occurs in the water column, then this is well illustrated by the behavior of the float. It would have been like two or three seconds to take its vertical position and the upper body protrudes above the surface of the water is bite.
Very effective posting, which is that snap vertically down to the point of fishing, and when the float is already from the water surface at a distance equal to the length of the leash, the lowering speed of the snap is artificially reduced to approximately one centimeter per second. This posting is as efficient, but requires streamlined gear and good technique of fishing.
Another good technique is that the descent is metered so that the bait lay on the bottom. After a few seconds, the surface current will pull the line and equipment will slowly begin to drift.
