“Four Looks and One Try” method, the key to playing reservoir fishing

Ku fishing is different from pool fishing and river fishing. Reservoir fishing how to locate the fishing position, identify the nature of the reservoir, adjust the depth, choose the bait, and know the fish situation. These difficulties are not only independent, but also related to each other, and they are interdependent and complementary. They are also related to the depth of the fishing position, the nature of the fish and the nature of the fishing bait, and so on.

How to deal with these five difficulties is the key to playing Kudiao, and the key to opening Kudiao is worth asking. The five major difficulties and countermeasures of Kudiao are now introduced for reference.


1. It is difficult to determine the fishing position to see “styles” 

When fishing in a reservoir, whether you fish for the head, tail, or waist of the reservoir is usually determined by the style. The style is divided into two aspects: wind direction and wind force. The same wind direction can be divided into east, west, south, and north, and in all directions. Recognizing the wind direction is related to the direction of the reservoir.

Some reservoirs have their heads in the east and their tails in the west, while others have the opposite direction. Regardless of the direction of the reservoir, where the wind blows into the reservoir from or close to the head of the reservoir (the dam that blocks the water is the head of the reservoir), the temperature is lower than 15°C, and the wind is above level 3 (the sound of waves hitting the mud bank), You should choose to hook under the head or waist of the library instead of the end of the library; if the temperature exceeds 20 ℃, you should first hook the end of the library.


The depth is determined by the weather, especially on windy days with 2-3 winds. The shallow water at the end of the reservoir is good for fishing. This kind of fishing against the wind makes it easy to catch fish.

On the contrary, if the wind blows into the reservoir from or close to the end of the reservoir when the temperature is higher than 20°C. Fishing at the end of the reservoir should be the first choice, and when the temperature is lower than 15°C, the lower hook of the reservoir should be preferred. If the temperature is above 25°C and the wind is above level 3, there are waves and waves on the water surface, you should choose to hook under the wind front.


The winding front is the place where the wind blows from above to the surface of the water and ripples. In this body of water, you can catch all kinds of fish. If there is no wind, the fishing position should be selected according to the cloudy and sunny, and the temperature. Generally, it is shallow and sunny and deep, warm and shallow and cold and deep. When the wind is greater than 4, it is not good to fish. In this kind of wind, you should choose the leeward position on the beach. fishing.

As for sinking and floating fishing with poles, generally, you should fish downwind instead of headwind; while sinking with a throwing rod, fishing for bomb hooks or string hooks, you should throw the rod against the wind or sideways. Throwing the rod in the wind, the water drains out, the brain line is straightened, the water bottom returns, the brain line is bent, and it is easy to fish. Throwing a rod downwind, catching fish is difficult, and catching fish is not catching fish. It is also related to the direction of the wind.


2. it is difficult to distinguish the nature of the library reservoir are divided into cold-water reservoirs and warm water reservoirs.

Large reservoirs are not equivalent to cold water reservoirs, and small reservoirs are not equivalent to warm water reservoirs. The difference between cold and warm reservoirs mainly depends on whether there is flooding (spring water) at the bottom of the reservoir. In some reservoirs, the bottom of the reservoir is connected with Yin rivers and mountain springs. The water in the reservoirs is warm in winter and cool in summer, especially in the hot summer, the water is very cold, which is very obvious.


This kind of cold water reservoir is not good for fishing. Of course, under normal circumstances, it is more difficult to distinguish between cold-water reservoirs and warm water reservoirs. Even if you test the water by hand, you may not be able to distinguish between cold and warm by hand, because the local water temperature is different and can only be used as a reference. To truly distinguish the reservoir properties of a reservoir, it is necessary to look at the turbidity of the water quality. It is more reliable to confirm the reservoir properties by looking at the turbidity of the water quality.

If the water quality is quite clear, the visibility is more than 1 meter, there are almost no plankton and algae in the water, and there are very few suspended solids on the water surface (cold water bottom does not ferment). This kind of water body is almost a cold water reservoir.

fishingThe growth and reproduction in this water body will be affected. Obviously, it is not easy to fish. In the water body of warm water reservoirs, the fermentation of the bottom material is normal, the growth of microorganisms is not inhibited, and the visibility of the water body will become blurred; even if the water quality is better, it is always vaguely felt that there is something in the water.

It is easy to look for it carefully. It was found that for animals such as plankton and small insects, the temperature of reproduction and survival in the water body is relatively normal, which is suitable for the living environment of fish. This kind of warm water reservoir is better for fishing, even if it is a large reservoir. As for muddy water reservoirs (mostly small reservoirs), they are not necessarily warm water reservoirs. If it is a muddy water body created by fish (mainly carp), it is obviously a warm water reservoir; if it is muddy water caused by mountain torrents, there will be two As a result, whether it is cold or warm, it should be carefully distinguished.


3. the depth is difficult to adjust to seeing the cloudy and sunny fishing in reservoirs, fishing deep and shallow fishing is more difficult.

Because the depth in the reservoir is different from the depth in the pond, and the shallowness in the reservoir is also different from the shallowness in the pond. The shallowness in the reservoir is sometimes shallower than the depth in the pond; as for the depth in the reservoir, it is difficult to define, and it may exist from 10 meters to tens of meters. Therefore, in reservoir fishing, regardless of the angler rod or sea rod, there is a problem of deep fishing and shallow fishing. It is also a problem and difficult problem.


How to determine this depth limit is the “knotty eye” of reservoir fishing. Because it is not only about whether you can catch a good fish, but also whether you can catch a fish. In deciding to choose the depth of fishing, in addition to the high and low temperature, the most important thing is the cloudy and sunny weather. Fishing in shallow water on cloudy days, 2 meters and 3 meters of clear water are within the shallow water (not the concept of shallow water in a pond). Fishing in deep water on sunny days, 5 meters and 10 meters are not deep (in clear water). Therefore, fishing with a pole in the reservoir is best to use a long pole.

A pole over 8 meters and 10 meters is not an exaggeration. It is worth noting that fishing in the reservoir on a cloudy day and fishing in the reservoir on a sunny day are completely two different things: cloudy day Fishing in  Reservoir, the fishing position is upright, and the shallow and deep fishing is right, and you can often return with a full load.

On a sunny day, especially on a cloudless sunny day, you can get nothing from the same fishing spot at the same fishing spot. Such things are not uncommon.

The main reason is the different shades of cloudy and sunny. What must be pointed out is: to go fishing in Reservoir, it is best to choose to fish in cloudy, foggy, light rain, cloudy to overcast weather, even fishing rods. Of course, fishing in the muddy water reservoir on sunny days is a different matter, not in this category.


4. Fishing bait is difficult to choose to try vegetarian meatThe fish in the reservoir is different from the fish in the pond. Especially in some large reservoirs,

because it is not easy to catch, the natural ecological reproduction is very obvious. There are various fish species in the water body. In some reservoirs, even ferocious fish are more docile than docile. There are many fishes, big fishes are more than small fishes, and some are the opposite, small fishes are full of reservoirs. Therefore, what kind of bait to use for fishing is always a major difficulty in reservoir fishing.

Once the wrong bait is used, no fish can be caught, and it may even be difficult to figure out where the problem is.

Therefore, it is very important to try fishing with bait, which kind of bait to choose for fishing. There are two ways to try fishing: one is to try the bait; the other is to try the bait.

The method of fishing with bait here is that no matter what kind of fish is in the water body, only one type of bait is used to try fishing (most of them are habitual bait), and it is believed that the taste of the fish will be the same, and one type of bait can catch many kinds of fish; the so-called The method of fishing bait is to think that there are different fish in the water body, and the taste of the fish is different. You should try fishing with different baits to determine the target fish. Using the bait-testing method is relatively simple and convenient, but has considerable limitations and cannot confirm multiple fish species; although the bait-testing method is more troublesome, it is necessary for fishing in the reservoir.

Yes, and you must try fishing with plain bait and meat bait separately to confirm the different fish species in the water body, including the ferocious fish species.

There are powder bait, granular bait, and grass bait. Meat bait is divided into insect bait and block bait. The powder bait needs to test soft and hard, atomized, the particle bait needs to test the size, the grass bait needs to test-ups and downs, the insect bait needs to test life and death, how many pieces of bait should be tried, and so on.

After repeated trials, one or more kinds of bait were determined as common bait and counterpart bait. If you simply use a certain kind of bait to try fishing, once the mouth of the fish is wrong, the fish species is wrong, it may be missed and nothing can be caught. It is worth mentioning that, in large reservoirs, live bait is better than dead bait, light bait is better than dark bait, and hard bait is better than soft bait.


5. the fish situation is hard to know, look at the floating layer reservoir fishing,

whether there are fish or not in the water, is not just a question of catching more and less, but whether you can catch it. In pond fishing, the fish situation is relatively easy to confirm. By watching the fish bubble, you can confirm it.

While fishing in the reservoir, it is difficult to understand the fish situation by watching the fish bubble. Especially the shore is deep water, the bottom of the slope. The fish is not in this place, and it is impossible to spit out the bubble here. It is difficult to confirm whether there is fish or not.

Therefore, when fishing in a reservoir, once you can’t get the bottom of the fish by watching the fish bubbles, you should observe the fish’s activity from the floating layer on the water surface to understand roughly which fish are in the water. If there are constantly swimming fish on the surface of the water, and if the bait is dropped, there are swimming fish rushing to eat, indicating that there are no upper-layer ferocious fish in this water body, and even if there are, the number will not be many. If there are small carps jumping out of the water continuously from the water body, there are carps and crucian carps in this water body.

If in the center of a calm reservoir, there are small ripples on the surface of the water, it means that there are big fish in the water body, and sometimes you can even see the dorsal fins that are out of the water, and you can tell the size of the fish. If there are continuous waves chasing small fish, it means that there are ferocious fish such as eel in the water. If there are small fish like dead crucian with its tail bitten off floating on the water, it means that there are ferocious fish such as catfish, blackfish, mandarin fish, etc. at the bottom of the water.


Observe the various activities of the fish on the water surface to determine the appropriate method of fishing.
