During hot summer, when the heat pouring down from the sky effectively discourages some species of fish from feeding, proper fishing moves to night time and early morning hours. For the daybreak.
For some fish species, dawn is a continuation of night feeding, while for others it is a time to start active feeding, which usually lasts until the first sun rays appear, portending a hot day.
End of the night – daybreak – it is the time of fishing around the shoreline.
They rummage, penetrating coastal thickets, underwater bumps, stumps and reeds.
The "extinct" shallows during the day turn into a richly set "buffet" with a shoal of all kinds of fish, bustling like boiling water, to fill an empty stomach, as long as possible before the sun.
You know, that the main factors influencing the feeding activity of fish in summer are water temperature, the amount of dissolved oxygen in it and sunlight. The severity of bites at dawn is the resultant of the aforementioned factors.
They are all the bigger, the higher the water temperature and the stronger the sun was on the previous day.
For anglers, the daybreak is also an extraordinary psychological experience.
Thick fog, drizzle, dark gray gloomy sky, the layer of impenetrable white creates a mysterious mood and atmosphere. In the midst of this strange sounding silence, man realizes his littleness in a world of mighty nature.
How many times have more than one of us experienced fishing emotions in such a scenery.
My favorite early-morning fishery are heavily overgrown lakes with a small area and the depth usually not exceeding 5 meters, or bays of larger lakes of a similar nature, where the richness of the fish stock is usually associated with the abundance of the plant world.
What is the best method of fishing in such venues? Spinning? Żywiecka?
The eternal dispute so far unsettled by anglers. Personally I think, that it is in the overgrown waters that these methods complement each other wonderfully. Because isn't it beautiful at dawn to throw a spinner or a wobbler at bank places?, and when the sun rises high and warms the water, a resin placed in the pond will not tempt a lazy pike more effectively?
The whole art of fishing in such overgrown reservoirs is to quietly flow into the vicinity of the selected pond between the greenery or corridor of free and clean water and delicate, by surprise, placing the bait there. If we come across a chatting pike, the impact is immediate. In such situations it becomes necessary to use a slightly longer stick, about the length 3-3,5 m, and peak action. The above parameters are important, because in this type of fisheries, due to the possibility of the fish becoming entangled in the weed, the haul must be short and forceful.
Of course, we will not avoid the loud slap of a fighting predator and scare other fish out of this place. It is, however, a minor loss, because larger specimens of esoxes usually stand alone. It remains in this case to move to another "eye".
The grouping of common carp in the shallows in the morning effectively attracts predators, which have easy hunting ground in one place. This situation should be eagerly used. However, this requires sophisticated fishing, adapting to the current conditions and behavior of predatory fish.
There is a general rule here, that predators still follow their prey. Anglers, who understood this fact, they will not flow from the fishery only with the oars on the boat. Old habits of fishing mainly on hills and slopes have contributed to a complete failure or only a partial success more than once, when just at dawn in the shallows in coastal clusters of water lilies, rdestnic, sparrow, etc.. you can have a great catch of pike weed. You just have to register small characters sometimes without errors, indicative of the presence of feeding fish, such as fry jumping out of the water, any movement on the surface, slight nips of the lure, etc..
Well, that's why fishing is so beautiful and addictive, that he knows no rules, logic and rules. Who gets up in the morning, to this God gives " – someone said. And indeed, In the early summer morning, we can find excellent bites. As long as we have enough strength, to get up at three in the morning.
