How cold! That thought crosses our heads every couple of seconds when winter comes. The enemy season of fishing fans. Its icy temperatures frighten fish and fishermen alike, who are hopelessly seeking refuge from the cold. In view of this, we draw up two winter fishing plans that you can put into practice for your benefit.
The first plan is aimed at those hard-working fishermen who tolerate well the low temperatures and want to take advantage of the solitude of coasts and reservoirs to try their luck. While the second plan goes for those who do NOT want to catch a cold and is good for a day of maintenance for the fishing equipment.
Winter Fishing Plan
Prepare your waterproof clothing and your spinning gear because we go fishing.
The most pressing question among fishermen when the cold arrives is usually no other than: What are you fishing in winter? And rightly so, most of the fish at this time sink into the depths, crammed with food to survive this period of lethargy. Or in any case move south to find more pleasant temperatures. Which leaves the fishermen with very few fish options at hand.
The only available fish are summarized in white fish and freshwater fish that can not go very far, such as carp and trout. Anguilliform fish such as conger are also an excellent choice at this time, as they are not affected by low temperatures.
Useful tips for fishing in winter
One Of The Things That Is Important To Understand Is that the conditions have changed and that what worked for you in spring and summer, is no longer feasible at the moment, you will have to adapt to not go home empty-handed.
Look For Warmer Waters
The temperature of the water drops much slower than the temperature of the air, therefore it is advisable to look for those areas that take more time under the sun.Or in any case the deeper waters, which still conserve the heat of other seasons.
The waters close to populations also tend to be much warmer, either by pollution or by the amount of people and animals generating energy and heat. If you do not give the opportunity, locate the fish banks, as they agglomerate to warm each other, slightly heating the water to their surroundings.
Change Fishing Times
Almost always, sunrise and sunset are the best times to fish, however in winter time the thing is opposite, leaving the hours of more sun, as the most favorable.Specifically from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Slope Of Wind Direction
A wind coming from the south favors you immensely because it brings warm winds, on the contrary, the north winds frighten any possibility of finding good catches, especially if the species that you want to fish look for their food in the surface.
Do Not Go Too Stuffed But Protected From The Cold
Forget about days as productive as the summer, although it is not impossible to fish, the chances of catching a lot of fish are low. It carries only the indispensable equipment. In addition you will be more practical and comfortable to walk by your fishing zone without so much useless load on top.
Instead you can bring a portable chair, and warm clothing to protect you from the weather. Do not forget gloves and cap.
One trick is to carry two rags, one to catch the lures or wet gear and the other to dry them and thus avoid the cold in the hands.
Study The Behavior Of The Species You Want To Fish
Preparing a strategy is essential in the winter fishing, as this will save you time and bad times. The plan should be based on the biological behavior of your prey.
If the fish looks for areas of branches, prepare your gear so that they do not get entangled, instead if the fish is the one that changes its food, offer what you are looking for. Be creative and try to put yourself in your place to understand how you will react to what you put.
Do Not Hesitate To Use A Good Bait Or Lure
Only if the deception offered is adequate enough, the fish will sting. Remember that during the winter the appetite decreases as well as your metabolisms. An overly large or appetizing bait will be ignored as they should avoid eating too much at this time.
Winter Fishing Equipment Maintenance Plan
If you freeze your fingers and nose is not your thing, take advantage of this season to prepare your equipment properly for when spring begins. Put on a pair of wool socks and prepare a hot chocolate, which will spend a long time polishing your equipment.
Something That Very few people take the trouble to do, because it may seem tedious to them, however it is an excellent practice to know what is counted, and that deserves to be replaced.
Open an Excel document or notepad, and see by category all your equipment, tools and fishing accessories. Check that all parts of your rods are in good condition, that your reel has all its spare parts, that your lures are complete, that your emerillos and pearls have not been scattered by the plastic box. May all your tools be used correctly, etc.
