Fishing on foam rubber

Fishing on foam rubber Foam is a masterpiece, the fruit of the ingenuity of our people. If we were not so poor – we would never catch on such a cheap and very angry jig-bait as a foam rubber fish :). So, what kind of a miracle of folk art. Where, under what conditions and how to catch the foam rubber? Let’s try to understand.

There are two classical concepts of foam:

– Fish. An ornamental tail. The shape is similar to a fish, up to the presence of fins. Color appropriate. A small own game, even on even wiring. It is used for the most part in standing water and under the same conditions as silicone jig baits.

– Carrots. Lure without a tail. The game is attached to the current and various options for wiring (step, wave, podigrovki rod, etc.). The carrots have excellent compactness, and hence the casting range.

What are the features of the foam gun and its advantages over other types of baits.

1. The foam is a soft bait. With a snatch of a predator, it does not cause fear and is taken for a living object.

2. In water, the foam gun occupies a vertical (or near vertical) position. Thus, it looks like a frying fish at the bottom.

3. Foam impregnated with water – very elastic, due to what, the game of foam rubber fish is simply amazing.

4. The ruffle is extremely long-range bait, especially “Carrot”. Due to the minimum sail, the rolls compete in the casting range only with monolithic oscillators of the castmaster type.

5. On the basis of foam rubber fish are mounted almost perfect nezotseplyayki. The elasticity of the foam is such that even if the foam is crumpled when it comes to the obstacle, it instantly returns to its shape. Usual silicone baits on offset hooks, in such a situation open the sting and on the next branch can catch on.

6. Foam is a porous material, so a foamy fish can be impregnated with various flavors and attractants that will last long enough.

7. And finally – the price! A huge plus of foam rubber :). I bought a set of sponges for half a dollar and cut pieces of 50 …

The classic option – the wiring of a foam rubber fish with a step. In this case, the porcelain wriggles nicely, especially on the flow. If it’s a fish, it still shakes its tail, almost like a vibrotail.

Also very effective wiring. Fish are led in the water column, usually near the bottom. The tip of the rod makes a slight wiggle in the vertical plane. From this the fish goes as though on a wide sinusoid and at the same time intensively wriggles.

In addition, the foam can be given a game of its own. It is enough to pass a thin cord through the body of a foam carrot, and at its end to tie a miniature petal, through a swivel or simply directly. When wiring this bait will vibrate vigorously thanks to the petal game. I highly recommend experimenting with such a hybrid!

There is a situation when on the general background of the bottom there is some perspective place, with a very limited area. For example: a pit, a gap between snags, an underwater island, a stone on the bottom, etc. A shell allows you to catch such a place especially tightly. To do this, lead the bait step, probing the bottom to grope the coveted site. When the bait is in place – the wiring is completely stopped. Further podigryvayut bait tip of the rod, literally moving the load-head on the bottom a few centimeters per tychku rod. In general, it is excellent if there is a current in the place of catching – it will give the porcelona an additional, attractive game.

Interesting is the catching of perch on miniature porcelons with a sinker on a separate leash, as with bottom spinning. At the end of the cord is put a sinker, and above on 2 leashes small foam bottles with single hooks. Posting medium drafts. When pulling the rollers go behind the line, snuggling to the bottom, and on a pause they allure up. In fact, they also catch on the beard. But there will be a separate post about catching a beard in the near future.
