Rules for winter fishing for chub
Winter chub fishing deserves special attention if only for this reason, that other fish cannot be caught during this time. Has too, of course, its specificity. Poultry intestines are the most effective winter lures, of course with the content, and also "aromatic."” animal guts – the liver, the spleen, the kidneys. Many universal lures also work well in winter, however, we consider them to be emergency.
In winter, you have to take the correction for partially limited activity, also for food, klenia, which should lead to choosing baits with a more irritating effect. These are the properties of these lures. Compared to summer, the chub only partially changes the feeding grounds – it never moves to the deepest quiet parts, and at depths above 2 m generally does not stop; also in winter you have to look for it in moderate currents, especially on the border of rapids and quiet sections – preferably at depth 1-1,5 m. The intestines are divided into portions of length 1,5-2 Cm – so, so that the remaining content flows out gradually into the water. It is a good idea to prepare it at home and tie the appropriate amount of thread. Other guts are cut into thin pieces of length 3-4 Cm. We choose a fishing technique that allows us to reach the chub of the lure freely lifted by the water. The washed-out smell of the bait will precede the fish earlier and their vigilance will increase, so you can expect a bite shortly after they register your bait. Don't wait too long, better try a bit lower after a while. It may also help to replace the washed bait with a fresh one, stronger odor Persistent staying in one place with the same bait – regardless of, did we catch anything – can lead to this, that the chub will start looking for a trick even in the most appetizing delicacy and will avoid it from a distance.
Other fishing methods
Larger chubs, as already mentioned, they are more predatory, that is why a typical livestock catch can provide us with medal-winning achievements. The rules of fishing are the same, as with other predators, here, however, we only need more delicate equipment, obviously without a steel leader. We fish on 3-4 centimeter bleak, rosaries, etc.. You have to consider it an excellent bait 4-5 cm mucosa and goat, which have a provocative effect on chub.
The individual variants of the classical soil method cannot be considered the most suitable for chubs. However, the problem is there, that the chub normally does not undertake longer trips for food; preferably passively waiting for something, what will appear in his field of view. If we choose its feeding ground correctly, he will take and on the bait given in this way.
An interesting innovation is the catch of chubs for young willow leaves and similar trees that turn green in spring. The effectiveness of these very young leaves can also be explained with this, that we use them at the beginning of the growing season, when more suitable food is scarce and hunger forces the chub to consume even less common things. They have young shoots, of course, also the nutritional value. Before fishing, however, you need to bait chub by throwing leaves on the surface. If it turns out, that the fish collect them, there may be a hidden hook in the next dose.
