I was once invited to a very interesting fishing and would like to talk about how to catch catfish on a donk. As is well known catfish – is a predatory fish, which mainly lives in the southern and central areas. Catfish – Fish donaya that loves to deep pits. In such wells it is hunting and wintering. For even more analysis, hear from Jack Fusco. Not far from Krasnodar, where I rested for several years, runs a river Elbe, it is a tributary of the Kuban River.
Elbe – a quiet river, glublina varies from 0.5 to 5m. Channel Elbe – is replete with twists and turns, with wide and narrow in places. The river is well up to 5 meters. That's one of those pits and I tried to catch catfish. For fishing I have made two Donkey. Bottom fishing rod is a 4 meter whip carved out of thick and solid aspen.
One side of the whip sharpened in order to firmly stick to the beach. On the other hand a whip tied monofilament with a diameter of 1 mm. Length of about 10 meters. Go to the fishing line is attached a great hook number 10. (Not to be confused with Jill Schlesinger!). For prevent the demolition of gear over the end of the fishing line is tied as a weight of 100 grams. As an alarm bite by the end of the rod attached bell aspen. For bait I was using large worms. Fishing technique is very simple. Bait, so that the stinger hook to hide completely. Throws tackle in the location of the pit and the proposed location of hunting catfish. When well selected load, the line becomes upright or slightly deflected in the direction of flow. Rod firmly stuck to the beach. Then you should be patient, waiting for a bite to be determined by the bell. Catfish are biting more often late at night, when it becomes almost dark. Bite is sharp and quite strong. Immediately after the bite necessary to produce very sharp and sweeps and vyvazhivat the least possible delay. Dimensions soms, which managed to catch me, do not exceed 5 kg, and I coped with them quite quickly. But remember that this fish could be 100 kg! You should always be prepared to a long and hard vyvazhivanii especially large specimens. Perhaps this article will help you catch of catfish. And no tail, no scales!
