Before you learn how to catch spinning, you need to choose this very spinning, and choose the right one. Information on this topic can be found in the article "How to choose a spinning?". There you will learn what to navigate when choosing a spinning, what to consider, what parameters to pay attention to. We will discuss how to catch on spinning, that is, what to look for in the process of catching, how to act to achieve success, what rules to follow, to avoid failures.
Spinning fishing: the choice of location
Perhaps you know, or you can guess, that fish occupy a certain place in lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. The choice of location depends on the convenience for the life of the fish, on food and other conditions that may vary. So, an experienced fisherman knows where this or that fish is located approximately.
- For example, to find out how to catch a pike on a spinning, you need to remember that its favorite places are snags, bushes, underwater thickets, and pools. Pikes prefer tikhovodye. It’s good to use a scouring feed that attracts fish with mud.In summer, pikes hide in overgrown areas of the reservoir, it is cooler and more comfortable there, and it is also convenient to hunt for your prey. But the fisherman to make his pike hunt in this case is more difficult. Pike, for example, hunts from the top, which means the lure needs to be driven faster and without lowering much. Accordingly, it is necessary to catch the bottom pike, dropping the minnow almost to the bottom, on distant casts. Here we must expect that you will have to throw more than once. Most often, the ground pike is caught from 11 to 17 hours.
- How to catch perch on spinning? Remember that they, unlike pikes, avoid muddy bottom, dense thickets and quiet water. These fish often change their habitat in search of clean water and areas full of food. It is possible to find a pike perch at the steep banks of rivers with a middle course, in holes with snags, possibly in hollows with sandy shallows.
- Perch. Planning to catch a perch, look for bulging places, with thickets of reeds and water lilies. They live under steep banks, in rivers with a weak current, and quiet water. Perches can often be calculated by the clatter and circles on the water - these are small fry that jump out of the water from perch-hunters. Just do not swim up on a boat to such a place, there will be no sense, scare away. Throw spinning from a distance.
- Consider the habitats of fish, deciding how to catch on spinning. In the summer, with the onset of heat, you can begin to hunt ide. In the evening or early in the morning, choose places near reeds and grasses. Most often, ide are caught in the summer in rivers with a middle course, below dams and bridge supports, between shallows and rapids.
- Choosing a place for fishing on spinning, evaluate whether it is convenient for you to throw bait and get fish. Will it be necessary to approach the shore and is it even possible to do this? If you think that it will be necessary to go down to the water, assess whether you can climb back (especially with fish). Check carefully the place, the shores before catching: are they not muddy, not slippery. Be careful, sometimes slippery clay is hidden under the grass!
- Make the first throw towards the flow. Spend the trolling along the coast, past boulders and snags, at the thickets (reeds, reeds, etc.). For the second time, cast the trolley a little away from the shore and so on. Each time, lower the spinner below, that is, make the spinning spinner, after waiting some time, after the spinning fall into the water. So we did the fishing of the upper part of the channel.
- Do a bottom catch, also throwing spinning several times, but already downstream. Stick to the same algorithm: casting done from the coast to the middle.
- It is important not to hook the lure for underwater objects, for this it is necessary to follow the rule: throwing the lure against the current, make it faster; when casting with the flow - slower.
- If a catch has occurred, the fish will certainly signal. Soft tremors; short jerks; vigorous resistance, throws; Stretching to the side or from the coast - that's what you should pay attention to. This may be similar to a hook for a snag, and therefore you need to be on the alert, it is better to check it once more by hooking up (pull the top of the rod up or to the side to better feel the nature of the resistance).
- The springing properties of the spinning are maximally used in the position of the rod 40-60 degrees relative to the horizon. In the upright position, the rod bends dangerously enough, there is a risk of breaking the spinning, because its strength is not infinite. Holding the spinning horizontally, you risk breaking the fishing line, since all the load in this position will go to her.
- If you feel that the fish is not large, it will not be difficult to catch it for spinning. Vigorously pull it toward you by rotating the coil handle, pull it out of the water using a landing net or simply grasping the sinker. Error (!): Pick up fish with a landing net. In this case, the fish, frightened, can gather all the last strength and break. Right (!): Drop the landing net into the water and point fish at it.
- Large specimens of fish are worth tiring, because without a fight they will not give up. Put the coil on the brake and, slowly, pull it to the shore. If the fish makes very strong jerks, give it the opportunity to wind off a little fishing line (remember the brake on the reel). So continue until the fish is exhausted and will not surrender. Here's how to catch on spinning, everything is not so simple, but knowledge is necessary patience.
- Just a couple of theoretical tips on how to catch on spinning.
- In summer, such fishing is likely to be a long hike, possibly with an overnight stay. So, changing the place of catching, it is necessary to properly prepare the spinning for transfer: hook the hook over the drum disc of the coil or bracket, pull the fishing line, rotating the coil handle, install the coil on the brake.
- Making your way through the undergrowth, in the forest, carry the tip spinning forward (i.e., horizontally); just moving along the paths and roads, carry spinning vertically.
- When doing a halt, do not put spinning on the ground. In addition to the elementary risk of breaking it, accidentally occurring, you can clog the coil (with leaves, earth, etc.). Either lean spinning against a tree (backpack, etc.), or lay on the branches of a bush (just do not forget!).
- Finishing fishing, pack spinning, put everything in boxes, covers.
Many lessons can be found on the Internet, where experienced spinningists tell how to catch spinning. Videos, workshops and just fascinating amateur footage will be of interest not only to the beginner.
