carp is no stranger to fishermen, and there are many fishermen who specialize in fishing with carp as the target species. Carp are generally large in size, but timid by nature. The bigger the fish, the more cautious it is to eat the bait, so it is very difficult to catch large carp. Here are some tips on how to catch carp in spring.
1. The choice of fishing position
In the spring, the first choice for fishing is the leeward and sunny place, because the temperature is not very high in the leeward and sunny place in spring. Because the temperature of the water will rise quickly when there is sunlight, and the volume of water in shallow water is relatively small and the temperature is easier to rise quickly. So carp will swim from low temperature to high temperature to feed. Where the water is turbid, this water quality is not caused by man-made or various environments. Because carp are bottom fish, they use their mouths to find food in the muddy bottom of the water. Therefore, the water quality in places with carp is generally turbid.
There is also a relatively quiet place for the fishing position. Carp like to stay in a relatively quiet place and do not like to be disturbed by various external sounds. Once startled, they will run away immediately. Therefore, the environment around the fishing position must be quiet, and you must pay attention not to make too much movement when throwing the rod and playing the nest. So try not to throw a big whip when throwing a rod, and you can use a lead belt for nesting. If it is pellets or corn kernels can be lightly tossed into the den.
Some fishermen catch big fish and hit the nest, and they all hit the water with dozens or hundreds of pounds. In the water, there is a large pool of fish that has not eaten a single corner, and is already full. If the corn kernel hook bait used for nesting is also corn kernels, and there are thousands of corn kernels in ten catties of nest material, it is difficult for fish to find the corn on the hook in the corn pile. So I don’t think this method of catching big fish and hitting big nests is wrong.
Because in early spring, the carp’s appetite has not fully opened. So try to hit as little as possible when hitting the nest, about a pound or two at a time is fine. If you feel that there are no fish in the den, you can add another pound or two to it. If it is corn kernels or pellets, it is best to change the hook bait. This makes it easier to spot different bait in the nest, attracting their attention and increasing the hit rate. It is also best to use natural bait, which can reduce the vigilance of carp. For example, corn kernels, sweet potatoes, etc. are the food that carp likes.
