Fishing for ides and chubs from the water

In early summer, good results can be achieved when fishing for ides and chubs in shallow, fast-flowing rivers. These fish have already rested after spawning and are now very active by feeding below the surface of the water. Even casual anglers, rather thinking of spending a nice day by the water, they then catch large chubs. Catching these fish a bit later is much more difficult. With intensive fishing the natural distrust of the fish returns very quickly. The first symptom of "vigilance” fish becomes avoiding the crust of the bread, when it begins to move unnaturally in the river current. Resistance. what the fishing line puts, it tolerates the crust of the bread unnaturally, so that it often flows towards the shore or drifts too slowly. It does not arouse the interest of fish then, while the pieces of bread dropped loosely into the water are devoured by me. This is a slightly annoying fact, but there are ways to do that too. You should take into account all the small details of fish behavior and be patient.


If I want to fish with a floating crust of bread, I do a special treatment on the reel spool beforehand. I polish its edge with a piece of leather, until it becomes smooth. As a result, the friction coefficient of the line against the spool edge will be reduced to a minimum. Then I wind a stiff fishing line (it cannot be stretchy) a little over the capacity of the spool. In addition, I lubricate the line with an agent that allows it to stay on the surface of the water. Finally, I run the line multiple times through a soft cloth like this. so that there is not the slightest bend that could cause it to jam during ejection. The rod should be stiffer than normally used for chub fishing. All these laborious preparations later pay off with a good catch result.

The chubs will soon get to know each other on this ruse too. They will begin to assist the bait with caution. Depending on the behavior, I can distinguish between three types of fish that assist my skin. Those are – in my terminology – "urgent."”, "Trying" and "tail-hitting". "Hurry up."” they follow the trail of the lure and nibble at its edges for so long, until only a remnant of it remains, with a hook inside. On the other hand, the "trying" individuals take the entire bait fed into their mouths, but they spit it out immediately. They repeat this maneuver so often, until the angler loses his patience and stutters, most often into a vacuum. "Hitting tail” they are most often large and aggressive individuals. They hit the tail or the whole body against the peeling skin, not taking it in his mouth. The bait treated in this way most often falls apart, and in the end a bare catch is left.


There are several ways to trick these fish. You can fish just for the flesh of the skin. The bread must be fresh, and form a large piece of pulp on a hook in the shape of a bouquet of flowers (Lynx. 1). The non-kneaded bread has sufficient buoyancy, to stay with the hook on the surface of the water. The fish hitting the bait breaks it into pieces, but the hook still remains well disguised in one of them. Crumbs of Bread falling down now (one with a hook) they are taken more willingly by the fish (Lynx. 2) You can also put a piece of Bread pulp on the hook, and use the skin as a float (Lynx. 3). A large piece of crust tied to a line and a small piece of bread on a hook have often turned out to be a good idea. It looks like. as if a small piece detached from the larger one (Lynx. 4).

After some time, none of the above-mentioned methods will be effective. The fish will start to ignore any type of bait on the surface of the water and then it is time to float. Willing to continue fishing from the surface of the water, we should start doing it at night. It is even more complicated than during the day, but equally exciting fishing is hard to find. The night should be clear, and the water is transparent, so that you can see the shadow of the lure in the water. The sweat itself takes place as it is during the day, only we don't see the bite, but we recognize them by the movement of the line. Even on a clear night. when you see the fish, cannot be said, whether there was a bite. I keep my clenched hand just above the spool of the reel. This allows you to feel the line being pulled by the fish. The line comes off the spool quickly during a bite. Then I close the bail and jam. A few more words about the preparation of the crust. Before that, I used plain bread. I am currently using toasted bread. I cut pieces of skin from it and knead them in a damp cloth, until they get the right consistency.
