This method is the main one in catching sabrefish. Bombarda is a colorless translucent float through which the fishing line passes. It allows you to use different types of lures, with it you can cast over long distances on medium rods. You don’t need to buy a special rod with it. Experiment with weight using special weights.
Chekhon ignores spinning, so she is caught on a bombard. The fish move in schools and do not swim to the shore. You need binoculars to see schools of fish.
About sabrefish nutrition
Chekhon is a species of semi-predatory fish. Throughout its life, a fish is able to eat a variety of foods. Fish feed on zooplankton in their first moments of life. When the sabre grows up, small insects are used, the larvae that fall into the reservoir from the trees due to strong winds. The fish becomes a predator after reaching the third year of life. Chekhon at this age can eat small fish.
The popularity of bombards was laid by the Japanese, competing in sport fishing for horse mackerel. After that, the markets became overcrowded with bombards intended for this kind of fishing. Due to the fact that horse mackerel looks like sabrefish, catching saberfish with a bombard has become popular, as has sea fishing.
The Japanese released not only bombards and lures, but also special rods, reaching a length of 4.5 meters, for catching horse mackerel, but also suitable for sabrefish. This rod differs from ordinary ones not only in its length, but also in the increased flexibility of the rod. On a bank with trees, a shorter fast action rod is required.
Bombarda Sbirulino is the Italian name for the bombard and is in great demand in Italy. And although these types of fishing came to us in Russia and are alien methods, they have already taken root among Russian fishermen.
The bombard consists of a translucent float, weighted with a sinker and a stabilizer. The advantage of the bombard is that even a weightless bait can be cast over decent distances.
The bombard has characteristics in terms of weight: quickly sinking, slowly sinking, floating on the water, simply by choosing the right weight of the tackle, they adapt to catching the right fish. Also, the bombard has special markings indicating the weight of the float and the buoyancy with which the bombard is at a certain depth, allowing you to drive the bait.
Tackle for catching sabrefish on a bombard
For comfortable fishing with a bombard, you need a long rod of 3 meters. You can choose a longer rod, if there is room for casting the tackle. The rod is selected with the right size spinning reel, which is responsible for balancing the entire rod. Monolesku is chosen as the basis of the tackle.
The bombard’s float has a certain weight, but despite it, the float has excellent floating abilities. Floats are categorized by weight, there are slow, fast sinking and floating on the surface, each designed for a specific fishing situation. To prevent the baited line from twisting, three swivels are used to separate the bait from the line. A bead is put on in front of the triple swivel and fishing line to prevent the knot from being untied between them.
Depending on the fish, different line numbers are chosen for the bombard leash. The length of the leash depends on the fishing situation, in normal cases about a meter, in others it reaches up to 3 meters. There can be one or several lures, which are attached on separate leashes.
Catching sabrefish on a bombard in the spring
In the spring, the fish are in the upper layers of the water, so floating bombards are chosen for posting. In certain weather conditions, the fish sinks to the lower layers of the lake, even to the very bottom. For fishing in such conditions, the bombard was invented, its types are floating, heavy, slowly sinking, capable of diving to different depths of the reservoir.
