Sturgeon fishing is perhaps the most commona kind of fishing among the inhabitants of Siberia. This fish is in great demand not only because of its delicious meat, but also because it is very clean: there has not been a single case of sterlet contamination by a harmful virus for the human opisthorchiasis that affects the pancreas and liver. In the article we will talk about what to catch sterlet, we will describe the most effective and popular ways of catching: for bait and for spinning. In the end, we will also look at the types of bait that the sterlet best suits.
How to catch a sterlet for bait
For sport fishing, this method, perhaps,not interesting, but incredibly effective. The fact is that the sterlet - the fish is calm enough and with little resistance to survival, but it's very easy to catch a bait. The main problem here is to find a place where this fish feeds. If it succeeds, a good catch is provided to you. Of course, if you choose the appropriate bait. Sterlet can be successfully caught and near the shore, without casting a far rod, but in this case it is necessary to wait for the end of the flood. This period is the best time to catch a sterlet, when this fish swims near the shore in search of food. As for the best time for fishing, the activity of sterlet is observed, especially in the daytime, so this is the ideal time for catching a fishing rod.
Selection of tackle
With regard to the choice of fishing line, then for catching sterletwill suit almost any. It is important only not to use too thin, as it will be inconvenient to attach another snap. The best solution is to choose a good spinning with an inertial coil. Thanks to this device you can accurately throw the tackle and pull it out faster. Also, spinning will save you from a large number of hooks, since in this case you can use hooks much less (a maximum of two), and accordingly, from various "deposits" in the form of small debris and river vegetation, you are also saved. In this case, both the line and the leashes can be used rather thin, but not less than 0.2 mm, since otherwise the leashes may become entangled with the main line because of their elasticity.
What to catch a sterlet - bait
The most popular type of bait for sterlet is worms. Moreover, suitable for this as large earthworms, and medium in size. Some fishermen put the worm on the hook, piercing it in several places, so that it will hold better. The method of "triple bait" is also used, when first the main worm is planted, and then it is fixed with two sponges. You can catch the sterlet and fish fry, though in this case it is likely that you will hook on predators such as pike perch, perch or pike, which is also very good. It is worth noting that the sterlet - a fish unpretentious and well swallows almost any bait, so the most important thing, as we already stressed, is to find a good place for biting, and there will not be a catch! I wish you a good bite!
