Among lovers of fishing with spinning on the jig a lot of talk about the preferred bait for catching sous-varnish. We discuss the best colors, the best performance of shapes and sizes, the recommended weight of the load under certain conditions for fishing and so on. D. And the most interesting, opinions often diverge. Having purposefully dzhigovat fanged, I did not understand on what bait to focus — so different preferences were familiar sudachatnikov. Therefore I prefer to solve the problem yourself with lures — testing method.
At times it looked like this: preparing a half-dozen baits fished them one by one, removing each of about five casts. After shooting razlovlennuyu effective bite the bait and put the following, different from the previous size, color or model, and it is desirable — all of these three parameters. As a result, only a few fishings razlovil dozen twisters and soft plastic bait, concluding that work completely different bait!
Quite often choose baits for walleye begin to reason with colors, I myself do not just have to answer the question: «What color is preferred for walleye?». But, frankly, I find it difficult to answer unequivocally until now, so different colors of my best workers baits. But continuing to search for the answer, yet trying to somehow organize information.
By catching walleye pike I came out of the jig. By the time I found that personally I toothy predator best takes on the color twister motor oil (motor oil) in various variations. Not surprisingly, it was his I suggested Pike in the first place. And caught. Then the pike became good catch on a light green soft plastic bait. And it is also caught several perch!
The following fishings good show themselves from the classical Kopyto Relax, a then shot oblong Bass Assassin. But they were completely different colors, from black-and-white and acid in the nerve option to dull red with sequins and dark purple — in the second. Further worked chartreuse and orange. The situation with the choice of color lures more and more confusing.
And whatever you loose I did not soon, if ever allowed, made it clear lures Lucky John. Began testing twisters and soft plastic bait povoy collection of 2012, I had the presence of samples in one or two copies of different colors. After catching walleye bait fishing efficiency often comes off and in its place I put a new one. And too caught walleye! As a result, fanged I caught all the same black-and-white, dark green, silver, light green color, and the largest at the time — about 3 kg — the bait in a triple range of colors: gray, red and orange. Many other lures Lucky John, too, were literally striped and includes three different colors. Guess which one will work in the first place, it was impossible. Complete venture with the definition of the most catchability for walleye color I decided at the festival presentation of new soft lures Lucky John, held last summer in the biggest reservoir of Belarus — Vileyka. It addition to the above colorings managed razlovit lilac, nondescript gray-brown («watermelon seeds») and led tail (similar red head). In total, we managed to catch a fellow pas eight different perch bait, not only in color but also in size to form. In other words, my personal color experiments helped popyat that there is no single preferred color soft bait for walleye! Replacement bait might work on radically different for the colors — it happens often, deliberately working for myself, I have not brought. However, as the form.
Note, however, that at different fishings perch may prefer a particular model or type of bait. Sometimes, for example, it works best twister tail vibration. There were times that the absolute beskleve cause fanged bite managed only the trailer of a large fleshy «worm.» Although often the opposite happened — it fanged prefer soft plastic bait. From this I concluded that with him in the box is better to have both types of baits.
It is believed that the soft plastic bait pike loves elongated shape — elongated and narrow. At one time I thought so, too, catching a few good fanged on Bass Assassin, and then lures Akara. Accordingly, when he met with the «Lucky John», it also began to be used primarily oblong model, despite the fact that they had a «pike» name — Pike Idol. Pike was caught on them regularly, and on a bigger size — 12 cm. Probably, there is still a form of matter. Until that one day all six pike weighing 1280 to 2930 g I caught only elongated Pike Idol. It would seem that the ideal form of the buzz bait is found, it is confirmed by the fact that one of the fanged belched after catching his fellow tribesman — elongated pike-perch, a stretch similar to the described soft plastic bait.
But just five days later at the same venue fanged suddenly changed their preferences. Catch up on an elongated vibrating tail only one walleye, though, about 3.5 kg of bites at the bait this perspective I do not see it. Until then, until you put another model — the classical form called Classic Roach. And from the first casting took a walleye on 4330 g, breaking his previous record. Perhaps in this case, change the bait worked, but then later perches across mostly already in wide soft plastic bait! I believe that the fanged simply change your diet, going to the other prey. For example, on a perch and roach.
Thus, it can be concluded that the ideal form of bait which would be well advised to catch walleye, also exists. Used different times, can operate a variety of bait fish, the choice of which is probably due to its current menu. And, of course, the replacement of one to another too often works, as in the case with color, and with a size too.
Recently, when fishing with spinning I try to use large bait. It concerns various types of artificial lures, including soft. And I should note that the rule «big bait — big fish» works pretty often for a variety of predators, including for walleye. At least the largest fanged I caught no small soft plastic bait length of 10 cm and 12 cm. I’m sure if I use smaller bait, would remain without a trophy.
But this does not mean that for small bait will take the small fish. Often perch per kilogram and a half sets pa 2-inch bait. To find out what today choose fanged again need to change the bait. At the same reservoir Vileika I had an interesting situation when the first day of the two-day fishing pike prefer big baits, and the second to give them up, choosing the already smaller — about 8 cm. And it happened on the same points.
However, for someone and 8 cm seem not so small, but for some time now for the walleye I rarely use smaller lures. Most often the opposite — increasing their size up to 15 cm. Although in the latter case, too, is not so simple.
Deciding on one of the trips buzz «on the balk,» it is with the largest tires in my collection (about 15 cm), I was surprised when the first on her coveted perch small, weighing about half a kilo. And the bites were not single! And just under a curtain of fishing, I finally caught «kiloshnika.» Analyzing what happened, I think I just got on the yield of active walleye, and large bait, he quickly responded, regardless of its size.
To sum up the above, the monitoring of the amount of bait for walleye are the same as on the form: in different, even neighboring fanged days may prefer large or, conversely, smaller prey. You can, of course, always use a versatile 3-inch size n almost always have to catch on with low chances of frequent capture the trophy. And you can, on the contrary, try to use large bait. Personally I prefer the second option, especially since it has confirmed the feasibility of and the quality of catches my comrades.
However, with large baits often unpleasant incidents occur. Firstly, it happens a lot of empty bites, and if the trophy fish pinpoint relatively well, the average often goes. Second, the Walleye as no one else loves deprive soft bait tails. It is not clear why this happens, because it is assumed that it mainly hit in the head. The disadvantages also arise with the correct N reliable equipment, especially large soft plastic bait.
For zander, there are three main types of tooling jig baits. First of all, classical jig, which is suitable for virtually any form of baits. Perhaps only the most narrow and long may «get along» is not all heads and single hooks. Because of the inconvenience of this equipment can be called the need to replace the entire bait, if you want to change only the weight of the load.
And with TWISTER, and vibro-tailed, I use a cup with snap-on twin gruzilom- «Cheburashka» or an offset hook, still preferring the first option. However, double hooks «contraindicated» in zakoryazhennyh where often just have to catch walleye. Then snap pas ofsetnike already doing. Usually soft baits range from 7 to 12 cm I use three sizes ofsetnikov, the largest of which — № 5/0.
At one time, I had a prejudice against such uncoupled snap, but after I started to use a stiff rod with ultrafast systems, problems not prosekaemostyu virtually none. And al bait material also depends on the effectiveness of sweeps: soft silicone contributes to better pinpoint the bridge. However, the service life of the bait at the same time a little. Zoom makes it super glue and lighter (better turbocharged), but this I will say below.
When using ofsetnika I almost had to go walleye in the final stage vyvazhivaniya. I can recall only one case, and a really good specimen. Usually, if the fish are not prosekaet not prosekayut immediately on biting, and if detected, the well gets into a boat. Of course, with proper vyvazhivaniya. On the successful outcome of bite affects the bait material. So, if soft soft plastic bait almost 100 different protseptnoy implementation quality of bites, some dense twisters zander is still not always possible to shift to the forearm to detect the hook. So dense is the bait to try to equip in a different way.
Articulating a snap, whether double or offset, twisters and soft plastic bait become more active and interesting game. In a classic jig lure some simply do not reveal all the possibilities of its animations. Therefore, soft plastic bait with very little game I try to equip hinged. And it will be a double hook or blanket, it depends primarily on the extent zakoryazhennosti fishing grounds,
It may be added that the twins uncomfortable narrow equip bait — they may be damaged. Often, this occurs when pushed onto the bait, especially if a wide ear hook. So in this case, still preferably offset hook. At the same time offset can be inconvenient and even inefficient for wide baits. This provided them puncturing bait upwards. If you do it on the side, it does not suffer the impact of cuttings. However, the wide range adjustment, for thin soft plastic bait offset the sting of the hook of the waste away from the bait, etc. it can cling to cramps. To snap the biggest lures more than 12 cm. the problem is very actual selection of hooks. Find counterparts with the gun right length IPT suitable offset is difficult. So often still have to either use one big jig, or use it in tandem with a double tee or (as I do for pike).
Large twisters and long soft plastic bait in front can be a bit shortened. In the game is not affected, since in these baits active back, but it will be easier for them to pick up a hook or jig to properly equip.
The lure of soft silicone, I try to capture further by using super glue. If it is put on the blanket, then I put or render super glue na upper part of the hook at the ring, then collapses to her bait and fix. You can even drop a little bit of glue from the bottom, where the hook comes out of the bait. On the jig nanoshu maple in parts of Georgia and at the beginning of the hook, and then fully put on the bait. Sometimes the help of super glue and seek refuge at double snap.
I have knowingly paid much attention to the additional fixing bait on the hook. With the need to solve the problem of slipping soft plastic bait (a twister in this regard, the problems usually less) faced at a time when he began to catch walleye purposefully. Quite often, he pulled together the bait, not spotted. And if you do not fish, the cramps are often «forced down» the bait, making meaningless the further wiring.
At the end of the article a few words should be said about the weight of buzz baits. This aspect is not so, I pay a lot of attention, as the previous one. Catching fanged usually waters without current, and the choice of weights is due, first of all s, depth and strength of the wind. For depths of 5-10 m in the quiet people, using a weight of 12-16 g As a rule, they are suitable for a pause of 2-3 seconds. If a strong wind is sometimes necessary to increase the weight of the lure to get a better feel stepped wiring.
Secondary, in my opinion, the choice of the weight factors of Georgia — the size of the bait, and the diameter of the braid. Close volumetric planning soft plastic bait in the water more slowly than, for example, a small twister. so the same conditions for a great fishing bait is better to put heavier sinker.
Sailing and adds an additional diameter braid. So, the cord diameter of 0.17 mm, the same bait will go down more slowly than, for example, na 0.13. All of these factors should be considered when choosing a load mass for bait.
The above data relating to the standard situation, zander, but sometimes there is an abnormal pattern of n — fanged kept small PA for himself in the depths of 3-4 m and a peck on the heavy bait, almost detached from the bottom. The nature of fishing turns out unusual: Pause minimal preroll part. But often zander like this approach in the wiring jig bait and big perch. Therefore, I advise trying to experiment not only with the bait on and with her weight.
