In the spring, you should first check the shallowest areas and bays into which streams flow. If the bay is very short, look for fish right in the middle. The braids, if they exist, also work properly, especially if there is a large depth on one side of the braid. If the day is cloudy, it is worth checking the edges - the bass is on them, but not in a hurry to lean out closer to the shore. If you find yourself in post-spawning - move a little deeper or climb onto a high shore, look at the water. Often a plying mother can be seen from afar, and her capture in the face of labor usually will not be.
In the summer, especially in warm water, fishing from the coast is fraught with great difficulties - the bass often stands far from the coast, on the navels above the thermocline. If there is a scab on your belly button - you go there. Very often, the bass rises from the navels behind the poppers and other surface lures, but it is easier to use wobblers - cranks, heavy spinner bates and silicone. If you find a sheer cliff with great depth below it, you will surely catch it. If during the day - then either in the shadow of the cliff, or, more often, on the border of light and shadow. If you suddenly see a sharp edge and bushes on it - in the evening the bass will come out there for a walk, eat. And catch, and tear off the bait enough.
In early autumn, it is worth looking for ridges of bushes and flooded trees. Bass will certainly be spinning there, from time to time, crawling out in shallow water. At this time, the so-called reference points, or reference points, work well. If in a row of trees one protrudes forward, it is more likely that the fish will be there. The same thing - an outstanding stone or something like that. Later in the fall, when fishing from the shore, it is imperative to check the bushes on the chalks, if we do not extend to deep braids and brow. Well, in the winter it’s stupid to wander along the shore and throw, throw, throw. But all these things are superimposed very interesting
All of the above is true for stable weather, when the pressure is more or less normal, there is no strong wind and rain. The most unpleasant weather phenomenon is cold front. A day or two before its passage, the nibble is a little stronger, but at the time of its arrival, and 2-3 days after the nibble dies. Fish rolls in depth, eats very poorly. Decreasing the size of the bait can sometimes help. Warm frontif this is the case in winter or spring, raises the bass from the depths. But in the summer it drives him to the very depths, to the thermocline. Wind unequivocally improves nibble, both due to the mixing of water, and due to less fish alertness. Particularly beneficial for biting rainespecially lingering. Dregs of fodder flow from the banks, food is saturated with oxygen, the angler is less visible against the background of clouds. Storm it drives the bass to a depth, in addition, it is completely unsafe to wave a current collector in air saturated with electricity. Some of my friends experienced the pleasure of feeling a side discharge. Thank God, without any particular consequences.
It’s not enough to find a bass, you need to offer him that bait, which he will not refuse to grab. The widespread belief that bass is an extremely indiscriminate fish and grabs everything that falls from above is a fatal error, caused most often by clips from the “Shop on the Sofa”, where the bass in the aquarium swallows “super-extra-bait”. I note that I have not tried all the existing bass lures, and naturally, I have my favorites.
Silicone baits - for me, are the most basic in fishing. A great many varieties of them were invented: these were worms, and crayfish, and lizards, and some creatures with many paws. I don’t think that the bass is very important for the exact similarity of the bait to a real object, rather, the manner of its behavior in water is important. But the color, oddly enough, very often works. My preferences: dark blue, black, dark green. Often, bright “chemical” tones are triggered: chartreuse, hot pink. Paws and other outgrowths on baits are needed to reduce the rate of silicone falling in clean water due to windage, and especially among bushes, where the "creature" clings to the branches with all its limbs.
There is also a certain way of fishing for such baits: a “creature” on an offset hook with a heavy bullet load secured next to the hook is thrown right into the thick of branches, biting most often occurs in the fall, but sometimes it is useful to pull the bait up and down. But the whole trick of this method of fishing is that the bait must be submitted completely silently - otherwise the bass will be shy of the tree and there will be no bites.
There are a great many ways to mount soft baits. They can be globally divided into "Texas" and "not Texas." "Texas" is when an offset with a bullet that moves freely on the fishing line. Everything else is a Carolina type of rigging, when the load is secured half a meter from the bait, all kinds of combinations with beads, tungsten bullets, bronze inserts for extra noise. Another option is installation without any load at all, sometimes it works in shallow water or in a passive bass. In general, this is a huge field for experimentation. For example, I use almost exclusively Texas.
Among the large class of these hard lures, I would like to note three: Cranks, Mines and Rattlins. The first ones are mainly caught in the summer, along the navels, and often very successfully. A professional baysyatnik has a box of cranks - 90% of the volume of all lures (all kinds of shapes, colors, a lot of theories, when and where.) I personally caught a maximum of a dozen fishes on krenks.
The second ones are shallow waters, bays and under steep cliffs, when you can see how the bass flies out from a depth of many meters. Well, the third - a very catchy bait on braids and cold water. It should be noted that for all the time I did not catch a single bass on rattlin, but I know people who made good results on them.
These include all kinds of poppers, rabbits, walkers, and the ubiquitous silicone, if carried out quickly. It should be noted that biting on surface baits, even in warm water, is unstable. More often than not, he is. But if the water is warm and clean, or, as an option, shallow and muddy, the surface can "shoot." In their arsenal there should be 5-6 pieces of varying degrees of noise.
Specially for bass, an invented bait. Absolutely unlike the edible thing, but the bass eats it. A big plus - the bait passes through the bushes with almost no loss. The combination of petals is quite important. The presence of a round petal "colorado" is better on muddy water, "long" is preferable in cold. It is interesting to use heavy (more than 25 g) spinnerbates over the active bass in the distance, when large specimens run along the edge at the casting line. Bites very often occur at the time of the splashdown of the bait. Spinnerbait is probably one of the most versatile lures. Its wiring varies from the usual turntable to the classic staircase.
Separately, there is a group of jig heads, which, unlike the ones we know, are equipped with a wire mustache brush that protects hooks from hooks when fishing in the blind snag, and a silicone skirt that looks like a spinnerbait skirt. Jigs, in principle, are self-sufficient, but often they put on a trailer - silicone cancer, a worm or a piece of specially prepared pork skin, which is considered a classic.
Which spinning to take? From what we catch in Russia closest to classical bass spinning, those that are dough up to an ounce and above, up to two meters long, and look like a billiard cue. This is necessary, first of all, in order not to give the bass a chance to start serious resistance after biting, but to literally drag him into the boat - thin fluorocarbon monolesques are very often used, and if the bass escapes into bushes or grass, do not see it like your ears. In our case (when fishing from the shore), the spinning should be taken more authentically - 2.60 or 2.70, and with a test before 21-24 g. Long casts are quite rare, since in many reservoirs the depths often reach 40 or more meters. You should not take a frank “light” - a bassik about a kilogram will tie it into a knot.
Braid or fluorocarbon? There is probably no definite answer. But only one formula is well known - the more passive or pressed in the bass in the pond, the thinner the fishing line should be. Ideally, fluorocarboxylic. But then the hook should be very sweeping, over the shoulder. Otherwise, the gathering of a strong fish is inevitable. And if the water is muddy, there is a lot of bass - the braid also works.
Meat grinder or cartoon? The Americans very often catch cartoons, mostly “soap dishes”. They allow a very accurate and most importantly, silent casting. Personally, my opinion is that the same can be done with a meat grinder after a short training session. The only thing will be some problems with the "memory" of fluorocarbon. But this is solved either by reducing the diameter of the fishing line, or by improving its quality.
Where to catch?
If you suddenly have a desire to try yourself in catching such a versatile roar, the question will arise where to do it. Without exaggeration, we can say that the nearest place where this can be done without problems is Cyprus. There is a lot of bass, and in the 7 years that the athletes of the Russian Bass League visit there, bass fishing has ceased to be something exotic there. And now you can safely buy almost the entire range of necessary lures in fishing shops, it makes no sense to drag a lot from Russia. The only problem that can lie in wait for us on this truly hospitable island is a constant shortage of fresh water, which is why dams (in which the Department of Water Resources itself at one time bred the bass) become very shallow. For example, at the time of writing, the situation is close to disaster - the level of main dams has already fallen below the critical level, and it will only rain in February. And not the fact that they will be so plentiful that they fill the dams. It is worth remembering that fishing in Cyprus is exclusively coastal; you can buy a license in the departments of the Department of Water Management, which are in all major cities, and it costs about 50 euros for a whole year.
As an alternative, you can consider the option with Central Europe, primarily with Croatia. Bass there was divorced relatively recently, after a bloody civil war that split Yugoslavia into parts. Then, due to the fear of terrorist attacks, all large dams were lowered, and when everyone was at war, they filled them and launched the bass along with other fish. They took him from neighboring Hungary, which also, incidentally, can not be discounted. Bass took root well, despite the fact that ponds freeze for several months. And it is quite possible that a new European record is floating in the waters of Croatia, today it is just over four kilograms. By the way, the bass there can be caught right in the center of Zagreb. The rules are simple - caught - let go. The license will be sold to you on the spot, but it costs a lot - about 10 euros per day.
Of course, Spain and Portugal are considered the mecca of the European bass movement. In the first bass there is a lot in all large rivers in the south, especially in the middle and lower reaches of the Ebro, where the river is held back by a cascade of reservoirs. And the Mekinensee reservoir (Kaspe) has been the venue for the largest European tournament, Kaspe Bass, for many years. A lot of fish in the river delta. By the way, there you can (a rare case!) Combine freshwater fishing with sea fishing - for a choice you just need to turn right or left from the base. If anyone likes to visit the Canaries - there is a lot of bass too.
In Portugal, where two consecutive world bass championships were held, there is also plenty of it in the reservoirs of the Guadiana River, which, incidentally, is the natural border between Spain and Portugal for many kilometers. In Portugal, it is somewhat more difficult to find a base for fishing, but everything is within reason.
Even in Europe, bass in "commodity" quantities can be found in Italy, a little in France. Occasionally, bass is caught in the Danube - after passing through a number of countries with the presence of bass, it absorbs some of it.
From non-European countries, in addition to the United States itself, there are many bass in Mexico and Cuba. But the simplicity of his capture there is greatly complicated by the high prices of air tickets and the "communist" attitude of Cubans towards tourists, even from friendly countries - the task is to quickly and completely clear their wallets of hard currency. So for starters, it's still worth trying Europe. Good luck
Catch a fish big and small
The game begins without preambles and training, immediately demonstrating the first location where you will need to fish. To understand Fishing Clash how to catch the first prey, you need to press the "Cast" button in the lower right corner, which will immediately begin a short educational program dedicated to managing the fishing rod:
- There is a throw of gear in the water.
- After a few seconds, the fish gets on the hook.
- Now you should control the tension of the fishing line with the slider in the lower right, holding the catch until he loses the rest of his health.
- Caught fish are rated by rarity (from legendary to ordinary), weight, points and reward the player with gold.
There are no secrets in Fishing Clash, but there are a few tricks unknown to the players. Firstly, in order to increase profit from fish, it is necessary to improve its level using special cards for this. They are given upon receipt of a new level or from special kits purchased both for real currency and issued completely free of charge.
For those who do not understand how to catch the legendary fish in Fishing Clash, there is also a small trick tied to amplifiers. They are given as a reward, and they are divided into three types:
- Kettlebell - increase the weight of the fish.
- Dice - increases the chance of catching a rarer species.
- Timer - reduces the time required to catch.
Including it works on a small-headed hammerfish Fishing Clash, which is found in the first location. Another important point concerns fishing rods and licenses. A catch for a catch can receive passive bonuses that drop out of card decks. Licenses are similar in their principle of operation, but work on any projectile after their activation. They are useful in that they increase the size of all or a certain prey. Along with this, we are approaching how to improve fishing rod in Fishing Clash. Again, it is won from purchased sets or 5 shells of the same level are combined (determined by the number of stars) to obtain a reinforced bit.
The better fishing rods in Fishing Clash, the easier it is to deal with any kind of fish. The latter is very different depending on the location. There are as many as 15 of the latter, they open after a player reaches a certain level, or more precisely, every 10, except for the last. Regardless of location, bosses appear periodically in Fishing Clash. This happens randomly, and skirmishes with them are distinguished by fierce pulling of the fishing line, which is why you have to control it as skillfully as possible. Therefore, in Fishing Clash there is no secret how to catch the boss, it all depends on luck.
1-on-1 Hassles and Fishing Clash Competitions
To increase the replay value of the project, developers from the Ten Square Games studio added competitions between real players. In part, they reveal the secrets of passing in Fishing Clash, because when winning matches 1 on 1 rewards are put in the form of hooks necessary to get a new set.
The daily championships are similar:
- They pass every day.
- The main goal is to catch as many fish as possible from the one indicated in the competition.
- Those who manage to occupy the top positions receive the most precious gifts.
Results and goal are updated every 24 hours.
