What a pity, but the trophy autumn, in the end, ends. What does December give us? The first winter month is first of all the first ice. Dangerous and at the same time incredibly attracts. This month, coastal fisheries of predators and peaceful fish are possible. In this article, I propose to get acquainted with the main options for which successful fishing is possible in December. Here we have, in Ukraine.
December Fishing | Which fish are active in December
First of all, going fishing in Ukraine, it should be remembered that in December there is a ban on catching wintering pits and closing the navigation of small vessels. Consequently, fishing is prohibited in some places and from a boat. For more information about prohibited places in your area, please follow the link …
As for the objects of fishing, there are not so many of them. From the perspective of promising fishing, December can only please predatory fishing – perch, pike, perch, bull, chub and ruff, as well as peaceful ones – bream, white bream and small fry. The rest of the fish at this time in suspended animation and capture of these is almost impossible! And if you, like me, are positive, then you know that the perch is especially active in December. On the first ice. This is a classic ice fishing, and she has repeatedly demonstrated a perception of hyperactivity. It was in December, and it was from the ice. Pike, trout and pikeperch are less active, but they also eat well. While there is oxygen in the water. In rare cases and on a quiet warm day there is a chance to catch a chub. Such predators, such as the ruff and the bull, peck more or less well all year round, although they should be identified as an object of fishing only in the case of a complete OP.
Fishing Technique | Predators
Ice fishing in December is most successful in the first few days after freezing. Perch prefers to eat on the border of vegetation and clear water, slowly, day after day moving inland. The best choice would be a winter fishing pole and fishing in a small mormyshka with the mandatory replacement of the bloodworms. The perch will bite badly on balancers and baits in December. Only by the end of the month, and provided that a steady ice cover is formed, it passes into deep deep places with warm water. Fishermen also migrate with him. It should be remembered: safe ice has a thickness of at least 10 centimeters, so go for the cherished trophy – do not risk. Pike most often gets on a live bait with the help of special tackle. And the most exciting will be the deepest places near the flowing waters. Trolling is another option for pike fishing, although it is prohibited in most cases. Zander in the first winter month – lives in the deepest and deafest places of the reservoir. He was caught using flat oblong baits and live bait.
Сatching these predatory fish in December is the most promising.
Fishing methods | Peace fish
In December, a peaceful fish was caught both on the ice and on the coast. A roach in a winter pond behaves exactly like a perch. Gradually, he rolls to the canal and feeds simultaneously. If at the beginning of the month and on the first ice it also runs aground, then, as soon as the confident ice is established, it should be sought in the habitats of the bream. There are deep pits here. Most often in such pits there are pikes, big perches, roaches, white bream and bronze bream. From the ice a peaceful fish gets on the winter fishing rods (rental). As a bait the mosquito larva (bloodworm) or fly is most often used. Fishing in December is very dependent on the choice of the place for fishing and, of course, you need to remind you that the accumulation of fishermen in one place on the ice, to put it mildly, does not correspond to the reason.
In December, you should aim at everything related to roach, bream, and сommon bleak.
What is the best time for fishing in December. First, do not try to fish in the fog. In December, Ukraine is simply shrouded in fog in the morning, so finding the right time to catch is best at lunchtime or in the evening. Secondly. When catching a predator, be sure to ask the local aborigines when the exit occurs in the pond. Much depends on the output!
Ice fishing in December
Due to global warming, fishing is also available in Ukraine in liquid water. Many reservoirs in our country freeze only by the end of December and it is beautiful. Fishing in small rivers is very promising in December. On such, you can usually explore all areas, shallow and deep. Jigging, twitching, fishing on a live bait, trolling, or an edible worm — it doesn’t matter, you can succeed in any of the suggested ways. The fact that on such rivers you can give a battle to trout is also good. These are cherished fish species for Ukrainian fishermen, and their capture usually causes a lot of happiness.
Well, let you get lucky! The main thing to dress for the season and prepare for the conditions of catching equipment. By the way, in December such a predator shows the highest activity as burbot, but !!! This is a look at the Red Book, and it is prohibited in Ukraine. When capturing this species should be released.
