Preparation and basics

Good bite depends, in addition to the weather, virtually everything from equipment rods, the shape and size of the nozzle, from the leash, and the thickness of line. The intensity of the bite depends on the ebbs and flows of the water — the more water, the worse the bite. Favour nibble on bottom fishing the wind and the chill and the calm with heat only in the way. Adversely affects the bite reducing water clarity. During a rain the fish are biting well in clean ponds. With the flow of water from the ravines and fields, biting is much worse due to chemicals and fertilizers.

Weather and season

When the autumn comes, it is chilly, slushy weather and the water ripples autumn wind, bad begins to bite carp. Predators also caught well, as they continue to fatten, though are mostly in the pits. In such cases, the most appropriate fishing gear is the fishing line and circles with long casts and donkey with elastic. In calm autumn days with frosty clear nights and great bite on the cake carp, common carp, large goldfish, and live bait well are predators.

During the thaw, when come bright spring days, the biting is getting intense. And when it's hot, windless and cloudless weather, the fish stops biting. In those days, usually the fish bite well only in the evening, early morning or night. The best fishing is during periods of extended calm cool weather, especially if occasionally intermittent rains. In cloudy weather the bite is great, too.


Fish can hear and see. Therefore, every angler needs to know how to disguise themselves on the shore. The fish can see objects in the case, if reflected from them, the rays make an angle of more than 48.5 degrees. Given this knowledge, it is better to take refuge while fishing some bushes or ledges. This is especially true of those who have not a very long line. Some fishermen make themselves a portable ambush.

Very important is the clothing worn by the fisherman. You can't wear white and bright clothing. Best suited protective brown or green shades. Disguised, a fisherman needs to be quiet and in any case not to make noise. No need to rattle buckets, fishing gear, talk loudly, turn on the tape recorders and receivers, to throw ashore some items.


Highly affects fishing barometric pressure. When the pressure jump, the fish begin to feel ill, slow down and bad burn. Will not be good fish and immediately after normalization of atmospheric pressure. Fish need time to recover. When the pressure drops, the fish falls on the lower layers of the water when it is raised up. In General, the pressure drop of the intensity of the bite becomes higher. When the pressure increases, the bite is greatly reduced. Since fish behavior is influenced by many factors, normal pressure does not guarantee a good bite. For example, can influence the decrease or increase in water level, condition of phytoplankton, etc.

For reservoirs, located at sea level, normal pressure is 760 mm Hg. In other cases, the pressure is determined by subtracting from 760 mm the height at which is located the pond. In such cases, every 10 m equal to 1 mm Hg. For example, if we're going to catch fish in the pond, which is located 100 meters above sea level, the normal pressure of 750 mm (760 minus 10). Each fisherman to receive weather information should be the barometer. On the radio, you can find the weather forecast, but keep in mind that it is given for large areas.

Folk omens

Experienced anglers need to heed the people's knowledge to catch fish. There are, for instance: "the Sun is red in the evening — a fisherman is nothing to fear, the sun is red in the morning — the fisherman against the grain". If the sun sets over the horizon red under a clear sky, then the next day the weather is Sunny. If the sun sets over the horizon and the sky in the clouds, then wait for tomorrow bad weather and wind. A harbinger of bad weather is to the same and the red rising sun.

The full moon is a bad time for fishing. The thing is the attraction of the moon, at this time it is particularly strong for fish is stress. And when the pressure drops a few days in a row — the fish bite much better than normal. Pressure usually falls before the rain or a rainy period, why is this happening, no one can explain.
