Tackle on a fathead

Some time ago fishing for a fatheadwas considered not a very promising occupation. However, recently, when a variety of rigs targeting this fishing began to appear, the number of lovers of quiet hunting for this fish has greatly increased. And today for many the most fascinating fishing is the catching of a thick-bass. Tackles should be very reliable at the same time, since the bites on this fish are very strong.

Carpenter's fish

I'm catching the carver fishermen as a processfascinating, in which, in case of luck, they are waiting for a very solid trophy. For catching this inhabitant of reservoirs, a zakidushka, a feeder, and also any carp sticks, but necessarily with good load-carrying capacity are used.

Catching a thick-toothed tackle

To privatize this fish, many usesuch a favorite fattening lure, like a pea cooked at home. In order to be effective, it is necessary to prepare this legume culture before the final digestion, so that it resembles a mashed potato with its consistency.

Silver carp is a schooling fish, notmultiplying in some climatic zones of our country. It feeds on phytoplankton - microscopic algae. If future prey prefers to feed on the top, then the nozzle must be fed so that it always floats directly at the surface of the reservoir. To do this, water balloons or floats, leash from a barely visible line, having a length of up to one and a half meters are used.


Usually the fathead starts to catch at the end of May, andfinish in September. The best biting falls between the middle of June and the end of July. At night, this fish bites rarely, although biting is not ruled out. She starts quietly and reluctantly to peck at six in the morning. But already from eight o'clock and to twelve it is necessary not to forget to weaken the coil friction. Then the bite drastically decays and until the end of the day has an average periodicity of one or two times per hour.

Select a location

Those who catch on polystyrene know what is best to catch on private water bodies, in which a large number of fish are swimming and very little vegetation, in a word, there,where there is a shortage of fodder base. Optimal and fishing for thick-nosed in relatively small, rocky ponds, where it is easier to find a flock. Important is the fact that they have a minimum number of crucian carp, which constantly pecks, preventing to catch a really big catch.

Bottom tackle on a fathead

In general, the place for fishing should be selected according to the following signs:

  • on a stony, sandy or clay bottom;
  • in depth - no more than 4 meters;
  • on a headwind.

In this case, the bait in the spring in the gear onthe fathead should be without defects, and the leash and the hook are very thin and strong. Many professionals know that in the calm this fish does not bite. And more: the tack on the thick-toothed should always be thrown at one point, and the bait in the spring should be changed more than once in half an hour. When casting, you can not drag the bait on the bottom or pull it up when it is lowered. The "cloud" from the spring must remain above it.

Fishing for a fathead
The rod should be intended for such aFishing with casting from 60 g and not shorter than 3.6 meters. If the tree is selected shorter, then the number of gatherings increases, because when this is done, this strong enough fish likes to make unexpected jerks. Waiting for the bite can almost completely relax the reel friction, so that in the event of success, there is not a significant stretch. At the same time, there is no need for strong undercutting: it is necessary to simply tighten the rig without exerting any effort. The fishing rod in the tackle is not the most important part, so in its choice the fishermen are free, but the line must be necessarily carp in size 0.3 or 0.35 mm. The rod is often selected with rings. The only requirement for it is sufficient power, which makes it possible not only to make long-distance casting of tackle on the thick-bore, but also to bring out large enough specimens.


The first leash must have a length of about 15see To the swivel, he is tied for the tap. The second - two or three times shorter - on the line is fixed approximately 5 cm above the upper branch edge. The third, which is approximately the size of the first, is a quarter of a meter higher.

Silver carbs take bait from any of the threeleashes, but the largest specimens are found on the first. On the other two bites, although they are relatively more common, but the fish are caught smaller. Hooks on the bottom tackle on the thick-toothed should be as sharp as possible, while powerful, but light. Nozzles can be used in a variety of ways: Hungarian corn with any smell, including the aroma of caramel or vodka, green peas or flesh of young cattails.

Tackle the fat bearing machine with your own hands

Floating tackle for toothed dog

Many professionals know the featurethe structure of the jaw of this fish. Her lower jaw protrudes slightly forward, and therefore it is clear that she can not take a position perpendicular to the bottom to take the nozzle from there. Clearly, this fish can not be caught from the bottom. This is what explains the fact that the tackles on the toe-fat are more like a float rod on the floor. Ideally, you can use the carp option. Tackles for thick-fodders must be very powerful, because adults can reach a weight of 30 kilograms or more. And if the equipment fails, then in the fight against such a large specimen the chances of the fisherman will be small. We must also take into account the fact that fishing for a fathead is a matter of a physically strong person, since he strongly resists when he ventures, especially at the initial stage.

"Fat Loss Killer"


Assassin toottle tackle

Tackle with such a characteristic name today -the most common. At the same time, many professional fishermen do it by their own hands, not trusting the store's choice. The "fat-killer" is done taking into account all the features of the structure of the mouth of the future production and the principle of its nutrition. The nozzle for this tackle is technoplankton - a product designed specifically for catching this fish. For thick-fodder, it is better to purchase a lighter color, which quickly soaks in standing water.

Looks like the "Thunderbolt Killer" as a "barrel" withcompressed lure. Along its axis, an opening is made in the center to fix it to the "toe of a thick-bug". In this rod should be very strong, and it must be attached to the shock-leader. Its presence makes it possible, when throwing, not to break off the main line.

With your own hands

This float tackle appeared recently, but alreadyproved to be quite good. The only drawback is the cumbersomeness of the structure. A special feature is a float, which is quite impressive in size. Many people prefer this part of the tackle to a thick-fender with their own hands to make a wire or a bicycle knitting needle. The design should have two or more leashes

In general, to collect a tackle on a thick-bass is enoughjust. To do this, you need to insert a 15-centimeter anti-winding screw made of plastic into the float intended for fishing nets, which is first put on the swivel.

Then, through him, a shock leader is passed, towhich fixes a sinker weighing 60 or 80 g. Then a 20-centimeter leash is attached to the swivel and the toe of a tolstock made of a bicycle knitting needle is attached to the swivel.
