Fishing in the wind

Set load

When fishing with a waggler float, usually a load consisting of several small pellets is used, properly arranged on the line. When I want to use the power of the submersible current, I load the set a little differently. I like to use a whole chain of small pellets for the load, distant from each other 2,5 do 3,5 cm, which I clamp on the lower half of the line between the hook and the float. Usually it lasts from 4 do 12 .rucin, so that the current of the water "lifts” with it the abandoned set. If such a procedure does not bring the expected effect, you should avoid the pellets blocking the float and focus the entire load as close to the hook as possible. This is sometimes the only way to fish effectively in strong winds in deep waters (this way of loading works well also in shallow fisheries). The concentrated load in one place creates greater resistance to the submersible current, which then more easily lifts the set together. Otherwise, no load directly at the float makes it much easier for the water current to carry pellets clamped on the line.

Anchoring as needed

If the wind is still pushing the float, and the whole set moves against the tide, try to anchor the bait in one place (similar to the soil method). When the depth current is too weak, unable to pull the set against the wind, placing the bait on the bottom is the only sensible solution. Depending on the strength of the wind and water current, we need to fish with more ground, than the actual depth at that location. Sometimes one piece of fish lying on the bottom is enough to slow down a lure pulled by a float, however, more often it is necessary to fish with a ground that is one meter larger than the actual depth of the fishery and with five pellets lying on the bottom. I clamp the pellets very close to each other on the fishing line (co 10 cm). The distance between the hook and the bottom bolt should be 30-45 cm. When we fish with such a rig it can happen, that a low-displacement float will often be pulled into the water. Better to immediately decide on a more buoyant model. A good angler always adjusts his rig to the conditions in the fishery. If there are no bites or the fish nibble extremely rarely, fishing depth and rig load should be changed.

Often four to twelve pellets are enough (hanging in the water), that the submersible current would have a sufficient "foothold."” and "lifted" the whole set with him (1). If the water current is too weak, to pull the set against the wind, it is advisable to anchor the bait to the bottom. This is achieved by placing a few larger pellets on the bottom. Then it is advisable to use a more buoyant float, so that the deep-sea current would not drag him into the water too often (2). Fishing with the big, unloaded waggler (3), can be "exhibited” one larger weight on the action of the current (larger area of ​​influence of water, so better lift the kit). Set with weighted waggler (4) the easiest lunges, when the float is blocked on the line with two bolts clamped on both sides of the eye, through which the main line passes.
