Fishing a crankbait in the grass
The use of various “nezatseplyayki” showed the presence of fish, she pecked in or out for them, but the number of spotted and caught fish has remained small. At the mention of the fishing lure in the grass most of the fans of these lures present to catch a toothy pike and perch. Many remember the moments when their eyes were fierce pike attack lure. The tactics of fishing on the grassy shallow water have been described, of simple and many well-known. It consists of when fishing “Windows” among aquatic plants, various spots and streaks of grass, and open water over vegetation and between her.
When it is considered necessary that the bait is not in contact with the grass. Still need to choose the right bait and its wiring, which must be suitable under certain conditions and that fish is better caught in a particular case. For a long time I fished exactly the same, I had some success, and seemed all was well. But often I haunted the medium and heavily overgrown areas of the reservoir, in which there were more small fish and a predator waiting for prey. To hold the Wobbler in such places was extremely difficult, just a few meters of wiring he touched the grass, after which she hung on the hooks and the fish paid no attention to her.
The use of various “nezatseplyayki” showed the presence of fish, she pecked in or out for them, but the number of spotted and caught fish has remained small. Thus it is necessary to pay tribute to existing lures or versions of the montages, which are well caught and podscasts fish, but they should only be used during the harvest of very very thick grass. So and I continued to fish along the grass, if not there were interesting points about manners when fishing grass, feed crank, ways posting lures and game-specific models, which I was rescued and I remember.
Something had to find in practice, for many fisheries. In the end, there is a certain tactic, recruitment catchability baits and methods of animation to successfully sh in such overgrown areas where most fisherman would not be able to do it lures with exposed treble hooks, and some even think about it. Managed to learn not to be afraid of touching the grass and conduct a Wobbler so that it does not cling to the algae, which is especially true when they are not visible.
How to effectively fish with the lures?
A few words about why when fishing in the grass I opted for the crank, and not on any other bait. Wobbler authentically mimics forage fish, which the predator feeds, and regardless of the activity of fish with this bait a chance to provoke her to bite are always the highest.
I was able to catch the “herbal fish” in different water bodies, obscure and pressed on with aggressive, hungry and choosy predator.
Of course, not always and not everywhere Wobbler was the first room when fishing in the grass, but lagged only slightly, in addition to him the fish are consistently caught in all waters, what can be said about the spinners-“nezatseplyayki” or other lures. One lake pike badly pecked on soft bait on the “opsenica” in another reservoir did not respond to oscillating spinners, but everywhere consistently took on crankbaits. That’s why I always start fishing in the grass in unfamiliar waters.
Wobbler can be served more slowly than some other more active bait, which must be maintained a little faster than necessary. This allows to obtain more takes a passive fish, as well as to choose the average speed, which is currently leading to a greater number of bites. This bait provides high sasakamoose. At least two open tee compared to any other means of protection hooks, whether it’s rubber on offset the hook or various whiskers, allow you to catch a lot more fish.
The permeability of some of the cranks at a certain transaction is very high, it is only two times lower than the uncoupled bait, but sasakamoose of the crank four times higher or more. It is easy to calculate that at the same concentration of the predator on moderately overgrown areas of the reservoir more effectively to catch on lures than to go into the jungle and watch for the fish to bite and occasionally catch one or two pike.
Will a specific situation from my practice, focusing on the lures and the manner of their presentation.
We are in the area of the pond bottom is completely overgrown with Elodie, herringbone or similar grass, but above it there is also a layer of clean water. The depth of this layer varies from 30 cm to 1 mi more. Fish in such areas is uneven: in areas with smooth bottom covered with her less, where at the bottom there are small mounds or hummocks, and Islands and patches of grass tower over the main background, its much more. On the one hand, the solution seems simple: take the lure so deep that it does not cling to the grass and slowly obnovljivi available land. But in practice this option is not the best.
First, when the lure is in the water column, fish time to notice it and, if the pond is often obnovlyaetsya, and you do not have time to pick up a “killer” bait, she may not like motion that generates a Wobbler. In this case, most likely, they will refuse to attack. Second, the bait can go too high. Passive pike is sometimes at the bottom, and a layer of clean water or grass on it is different and in some cases the fish just did not want to throw the prey to the top. Then you need to use the slow straight wiring with a touch of the lure to the tops of the grass .
Bait for fishing in the grass. I use baits which are constantly in contact with grass, but its not as catchy. Choose specific models slowly pop up minnow with a deep bit more than the average depths of fishing. They are balanced and fitted with treble hooks in such a way that at small displacement of the Wobbler moves slightly down and forward, at this point, just the contact with the grass, but the hooks are slightly above and behind, so do not cling to it. After a pause, the lure floats, then her shift, and she rests in the grass the next; thus we pass all the overgrown bump or cut.
About active twitching or action in these circumstances will have to forget, otherwise, whatever the lure, the grass he is sure to collect. Transaction is a smooth twitching, slow movement of the rod down on the length of the bait or a little more. These lures have a peculiar form of the head and blades are usually narrow and small, allowing them to collect the grass and the front of the crank to slip out of it when afloat. In the end, the lure moves with a small acceleration and emerges on the level to which raised algae.
Despite the lack of a beautiful reversal of these movements is enough for bites of fish, and such presentation has several advantages that cannot be achieved with other types of lures. The lure is as close to the grass and to an inactive fish that is sometimes especially important. Breaking the grass, the Wobbler is suddenly in front of a predator who has no time to think, and he grabs the lure when it is the slightest movement, when afloat or the stirring.
There is an opportunity to overcome the grass that is in the water column and which is not visible, so there is no need for frequent rearrangements of the boat, and the casts you can do far more that is important when searching for fish and fishing from the shore.
