1. Selection of fishing spots: The fishing spots for carp fishing in winter should be selected in the deep water on the sunny water surface, because the water depth is closely related to the temperature of the waters where the carp is located. Under normal circumstances, the waters with a depth of 1 meter have the lowest temperature; in the waters with a depth of about 2 meters, the water temperature is between 4°C and 8°C, and carp are generally more active in these waters. Select the deep and shallow junction, the protruding part of the embankment, the place with deep grooves at the inlet and outlet, the place with ridges, or the place with obstacles on the bottom of the water. When the weather is fine and the temperature is high, after 12 noon, the water temperature near the shore is high, and you can also choose a place to try fishing.
2. The choice of bait: When fishing for carp in winter, the bait should be mainly fishy, supplemented by fragrance and sweetness. When using biological bait, you can choose red worms, small red earthworms, mealworms, mealworms, etc. When using red worms as fishing bait, 2 to 3 pieces can be hung on each hook to form 4 to 6 live-headed eggs, which wriggle in the water with multiple heads, and the target is obvious, which enhances the attractiveness to fish. When using earthworms as fishing bait, try your best to Use small red worms to thread full hooks. When using pasta bait, fishy scented carp bait can be used. When using, the dough should be minimized on the premise that it can wrap the hook, and the sound of the nest bait entering the water should be minimized when playing the nest, so as not to startle the fish that were already underwater in the nest area.
3. Selection of fishing gear: The fishing rod for northern ice fishing carp does not need to be too long, and a few solid bamboo rods with a length of 1 to 2 meters can be prepared as fishing rods. Because the solid bamboo poles are both elastic and rigid, and the carp struggles are not strong in winter, even if you catch a big carp of 5 to 10 kg, as long as you walk properly, you will not break the pole and run away. But the fishing line should choose the 3-4 line as well. Fishing hooks generally use medium hooks, preferably 4 to 6 carp hooks.
Fourth, the choice of fishing method: For carp fishing in winter, don’t rush to hook fishing after hitting the nest, you have to wait for a while, especially in large water surfaces such as reservoirs, at least 40 to 60 minutes after hitting the nest before hooking. The throwing hook should be light, and the sound of the bait hook entering the water should be controlled to the maximum extent. Whether using biological bait or pasta bait, the fishing should be slightly dull. One hook is lying on the back and the other is touching the bottom, or the double-brain line is bent and the double-hook is lying on the back. Carp eat slowly and lightly, so be patient and wait for the opportunity, and then lift the rod when it drifts black or moves sharply to the left and right to ensure that you catch a big fish.
