Eel Fishing - Some Helpful Tips

Eel Fishing - Some Helpful Tips

Fishing Academy

If you are going to catch eels, then for starters I will say that these fish reach a length of up to two meters and a weight of 4-6 kilograms. But individuals of 50-150 centimeters are much more common. Anglers call eels less than 50 centimeters “laces”. I have caught a lot of eels, but I must admit: the largest trophy was just over eight hundred grams. The rest are smaller.

In our reservoirs, this fish takes from April to November. In the cold season, the predator does not feed. Most of the fishing literature recommends fishing for eels with bottom gear. This is mostly correct. However, with certain skills, you can also fish these fish for spinning, trolling, mugs and even for wiring a float rod. And although many reference books claim that the eel is an exclusively nocturnal predator and that it is a bottom fish, this is not entirely true ... Often, being among vegetation or in other protected places where the fish feels safe, it can hunt at any time of the day. In addition to patrolling a certain area in search of food, the eel often, looking out of the hole, vigilantly monitors everything that happens around and never misses the opportunity to grab what it considers edible. In such cases, the predator boldly takes both on a variety of baits on a fishing rod and on spoons. And even when the bait is intended for another fish, but is in sight - the eel immediately grabs it.

Practice shows that most often the bites of eels occur on a bait slowly moving near the bottom. Especially on a mobile (running donkey). One of the options for such a fishing is shown in Figure 1. To do this, at the end of the line we tie a sinker weighing 30-50 grams, then two leashes with hooks No. 6-8. The first leash is 10-15 cm long at a distance of 25-30 cm, the second is 15-20 cm long at a distance of 60-70 cm. Fishing line 0.3-0.4 mm in diameter, leads 0.25-0.3 mm. This tackle can be caught at any depth, as long as there are no hooks at the bottom. This is best done with a boat at anchor. After casting, when the lead sinks to the bottom, you should raise the rod or, by reeling in the reel (if there is one), pull the line so that the leashes with hooks move, almost touching the bottom. Then, every three to four meters, you need to stop for about a minute, thereby letting the bait lie on the bottom. In a word, the bait should, if possible, play.

... Another, more complex, but much more catchy tackle for eels, I found in a fishing magazine (Fig. 2). And against the background of the tackle there was a photo of the fisherman himself with a ninety-centimeter eel in his hands. This ugrelov (just so!) Explained that his tackle is especially effective in grassy and snagged places. Its essence is this ...

On the main line with a diameter of 0.3 mm (Fig. 2, pos. 1), a swivel is installed freely moving along it (Fig. 2, pos. A side leash with a diameter of 0.25 mm is attached to it (Fig. 3), on which there is a sinker (Fig. 4) Since this leash is thinner than the main line, only the lead breaks when hooked, and the fish and the rest of the tackle, as a rule, remain intact.

At the end of the main line, between two swivels (Fig. 6 and 10), an intermediate leash is fixed (Fig. 7), which is a piece of line up to two meters long and 0.25 mm in diameter. It contains a float (Fig. 9), beads (Fig. 5), locking knots (Fig. 8). Moreover, the float is under water and does not serve as a bite signaling device, but gives the bait (Fig. 12) buoyancy, thereby avoiding hooks. The bite is transmitted to the angler through the fishing line.

Depending on the depth at which hooks are possible, the float can be moved along an intermediate leash using locking knots. The stop knot is the simplest possible. The beads are necessary so that, in case of possible contact, the parts of the tackle do not catch on each other. A leash with a hook is attached to the intermediate leash using a swivel (Fig. 11), its length is 15-20 cm.

I am far from thinking that everyone who wants to catch an eel will undertake to make such a tackle. I think no. But the fisherman can see with his own eyes what ingenuity and ingenuity is needed to become the owner of such a valuable trophy. Eel catching on a line is very catchy. I was a witness (only a witness!) How 20-30 eels were caught every night on a fifty-hooked bank on a lake in Karelia. But this tackle is already banned in many reservoirs. The attachment for any tackle when fishing for eels are earthworms and dung worms, crawlies, parts of fish. Eel is especially good for live bait: loach, ruff, gudgeon, perch, roach, eelpout and other small fish.

I happened to hear and read about a rather primitive and ineffective (nevertheless existing) method of catching eels ... Two or three dozen worms are wrapped in a piece of solid cloth (most often an old nylon stocking is used). The resulting bundle is tied with a string so that it does not fall apart, a sinker is attached to it, and all this on a fishing line or cord is lowered from the boat to the bottom. The bundle will be found very quickly and small blackheads will begin to pull at. As soon as the angler feels this, it is necessary to quickly pull the bundle out of the water. Eels that do not have time to release the bait will hang on it. It should be noted that success is ensured only when the depth does not exceed 2.5 meters. It is clear that only "laces" are caught on this tackle.

The eel takes the bait, as they say, "tightly", that is, it sits on the hook securely. And most often, playing this fish takes place without much difficulty. However, if an eel is caught on a tackle set for the night, then it will not come off and will not break the line, but it can drag it into the grass, under a fallen tree or under driftwood. Or, backing away and wriggling, it forms such a number of knots and loops on the line that it is simply impossible to extract fish from the water. In addition, having fallen on the hook and following while playing, seemingly without resistance, the eel, if a snag or a protruding branch of a sunken tree is encountered nearby, unexpectedly bends and clings to them with its tail and makes a sharp turn. If at this moment the angler does not release the line, it can easily break off or the hook will break. And then goodbye to the eel ...

Signs for students to successfully pass exams

We will tell you what signs exist for students and how to use these signs correctly so as not to harm yourself.

In the student environment, there are a huge number of all kinds of signs and rituals. The overwhelming majority of them are related to the situation of passing exams - and it is not surprising, because the session is the culmination of a whole half-year of student life, a tense dramatic experience associated with the "struggle for grades", and the arrival of the session is relentless, like a change of seasons. Regardless of whether you are a round honors student or an eternal C grade, you pass your first session or the tenth, each exam is always an event. Before the exam, you feel tremendous excitement, a certain tension, you mentally assess the degree of your knowledge and ignorance, you think about which ticket you will get. No matter how much you learn, you always know something better, something worse - hence the lack of complete confidence in your knowledge, although you try not to show it. This is only later, when you pull out the ticket, all emotions go away and a clear, concentrated work of thought begins. If, of course, I was preparing for the exam, and I have thoughts to work on.

Students have long had signs, and some of them go back several centuries of their history and come directly from cheerful medieval Vagant students.

When preparing for the exam, it is strictly forbidden to throw open books and abstracts so that what has already been read is not forgotten. In general, the book needs to be closed every time, thereby symbolically "locking" knowledge in your head. If you do decide to sleep the night before the exam, then this also needs to be done correctly. The surest remedy in this case is to put lecture notes or a textbook under the pillow for the course that you have to take in the morning. It is believed that in this case, the study of the subject does not stop, so to speak, neither day nor night. Although there is another version of this sign - the exact opposite. It is believed that before going to bed on the night before the exam, it is necessary to close and remove all written materials that were used in preparation - textbooks, lectures, manuals, etc.

And there is another not bad tradition: before leaving home for an exam, sit down on the path, placing a textbook or a notebook with lectures under you.

But with wishes of good luck and no feathers you need to be extremely careful. Despite the general opinion that these are happy wishes, they help some, and, on the contrary, harm others. There were cases when on a completely trifling exam or test, anything happened - and all because someone readily wished "no fluff". It should nevertheless be remembered that this wish was born in an attempt to deceive evil spirits so that the hunter would return to his tribe with rich prey, but the very wish remained the same and literally means "to return to you empty-handed." So, it is better to limit yourself to neutral wishes for good luck - this helps almost everyone who taught, of course. And one more rule - you need to wish sincerely, then luck will certainly accompany the wish itself.

Some students ask their family or friends scold them during the exam - This is also an excellent magical tool that helps when passing the exam. How did it come about? All the same fear of the evil eye gave rise to the belief that the one who is scolded will not be exposed to the evil eye, and therefore will achieve the best results. It seems so simple, but nevertheless millions of students and applicants believe in this sign. But there is a clear rule: scolding, you should never call a person a fool, stupid, fool - all the same we are talking about the exam. For the rest, you can not be shy in expressions, the main thing is that others do not hear.

Also, among students going to an important exam, the rule is popular - do not wash your hair the day before the exam... It is believed that in this way it is possible to "wash" all the knowledge gained from the head.

And here is another common sign among students, popular since pre-revolutionary times. It concerns the so-called "lucky penny", which is a five-ruble coin put into the right shoe. You only need to go to the exam in these lucky shoes. Some on the way to the exam still go through the obligatory ritual: if on the way they met a pregnant woman, then this is to good luck. You just need to ask her for the ticket number! Well, this omen, as they say, is completely “beard” and has been going on since the Neolithic times, when a pregnant woman was considered a symbol of abundance and well-being. In general, the continuity of generations is observed in its purest form.

Famous catching freebies - an indispensable part of student folklore, and even if you know the subject perfectly and in general you are confidently going to graduate with honors - all the same, at least once take part in catching a freebie, so that there will be something to remember later. This is done simply: on the eve of the exam, lecture notes or even the grade book itself are put out in the window, and the student shouts loudly: "Freebie, come here!" or "Freebie, get caught!". Immediately after that, you must tightly close the notebooks or the record book and not open them until the exam itself, so that the freebie does not evaporate. Some, especially distrustful students lure her in addition, carrying candy in their pocket - for freebies. Moreover, sweets must be necessarily expensive - the subject of bargaining is not a joke.

Another rule that students adhere to is do not take exams in new things, who never got dressed. It is much better to go to the exam in an old, time-tested, happy thing. At first glance, this is an ordinary superstition, but if the clothes are new, some especially suspicious students are distracted by how they look in them, and besides, if it is also uncomfortable, then unless the exam, which safely fails.

And there is another sign, also quite old - cross the threshold of the examination room with your right foot, pull the ticket with your right hand, and even try to start everything with your right hand or foot so that evil spirits cannot harm.

In general, many beliefs will be accepted, and almost all of them are observed by students at the next session - after all, this not only promises successful passing of the exam, but also just fun.

Places to catch

So, we looked at two techniques with which you can catch a swarm: a trap and a decoy hive. But besides techniques, you should also know in which places it is better to set traps and where to catch roaming swarms. We will talk about this further.

On the trees

The tree is perhaps the most popular way to catch roaming swarms or wild bees. In this case, it is better to attach a trap to the branches, rather than an empty hive, but it is not enough just to place it correctly in the forest. There are a few important points to keep in mind. Firstly, you need to hang boxes with frames only on tall and strong trees. Oak, pine, or aspen work best.

If a tree is tall and freestanding on a slope near a pond, this is an ideal place for a trap.

The tree in the forest or in the planting should be visible, not cluttered with other branches and twigs. Ideally, near such a large pillar there should be a small clearing where melliferous plants grow. You need to hang the box at a height of at least 3 meters, the desired height is 5-7 meters. The tree itself must be alive and strong, as in the video. During the wind, the tree and branch with the trap should not sway too much. Good branching of the trunk is encouraged.

Near the fields

If you don't have a forest or dense plantings nearby, but you have a field, this is also a great place to catch stray insects. The field is the place where the bees collect nectar, which means that the place you choose should be in the path of their flight. Ideally, place an empty hive in a separate area or near shrubbery along the field. You can also hang the trap on a tree no further than 50 meters from the field itself.

It is very good if the field comes into contact with the edge of the forest or planting. Also, bees love clearings and felling sites. For more details, see the video.

In the garden or in the yard

If you want to catch a roaming bee swarm, you don't have to go somewhere far into the forest or field. You can set a trap or primak hive just in your garden. After all, fruit trees during flowering are favorite sources of delicious nectar. Winged workers will definitely drop in on your apple trees, cherries and cherries. And then you will prepare a suitable house for them.

If you do not have a garden, but linden trees grow in your yard, do not doubt that you will have bees.

There are no special rules and guidelines for catching swarms in the garden. You can use either a regular trap or a hive. Do not rush to pick up the box you have chosen when it is immediately populated, let the insects get used to it and finally rebuild in a new place. This is a guarantee that insects will feel comfortable when carrying them to the apiary. Find out many more useful tips by watching our video.

Inflammation of the sebaceous glands: treatment

When the first skin problems appear and you suspect inflammation of the sebaceous glands, you should immediately contact a dermatologist. After the initial examination, the doctor may prescribe additional studies in the form of clinical tests and a swab of acne.

Treatment of this disease is selected based on the neglect of the patient's skin condition and the cause of the pathology.

Traditional therapy includes the following:

1. To improve the functioning of the sebaceous glands, the patient needs to enrich his diet with products containing zinc. Most of all, this substance is found in asparagus, wheat bran, herring and liver.

2. It is important to give up the use of animal fats, spicy and smoked foods, as such food contributes to the formation of oily skin. It is also recommended to give up spices, hot sauces and salt for a while.

3. Food should be steamed or boiled. Compliance with such a diet will significantly speed up the duration of treatment and will help to normalize the functions of the skin.

4. To replenish missing vitamins, the patient is advised to enrich his diet with fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, do not forget about homemade juices.

5. In case of an acute shortage of nutrients, vitamin complexes can be prescribed.

6. A balanced menu will help restore the proper functioning of the sebaceous glands. To draw up it, it is recommended to contact a nutritionist who will prescribe a menu for each patient individually.

7. The patient needs to drink purified water as much as possible.

Also, the patient must necessarily follow the following doctor's advice:

1. Every day you should wipe your face with a frozen decoction of chamomile in ice cubes.

2. It is strictly forbidden to squeeze or rub blackheads, as this can give rise to scarring and the appearance of pigmentation.

3. It is useful to wipe your face with lemon juice and rose water.

4. A person needs to wash his face twice a day with special medicated face lotions with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. They should be selected by a dermatologist for each patient individually, depending on his skin type.

5. It is recommended to apply homemade natural masks from yolks and grated cucumber to your face. It is also effective to use a skin scrub made from crushed oatmeal and cream.

6. During treatment, it is recommended to completely abandon the use of hard napkins and irritating soaps, as they can further aggravate the inflammation of the sebaceous glands.

7. During therapy, do not apply any decorative cosmetics and skin rejuvenation products to the skin.

In the absence of a positive effect from therapy, the patient is advised to undergo additional blood tests for the level of hormones. Further therapy is carried out based on the results obtained.

How much honey can you eat per day - daily consumption rate

How much honey can you eat per day?

The fact that honey is a healthy and tasty product has been known to mankind for a long time. And although it contains a lot of sugar, it can be eaten by dieters and people with diabetes. However, doctors, nutritionists and beekeepers alike agree that the amount of food consumed per day should be limited. However, opinions about this amount vary. So how much honey can you eat per day?

Advice from doctors and nutritionists

Honey contains a lot of useful substances:

  • vitamins
  • amino acids
  • minerals.

Thanks to this, it has a healing effect on the human body, including:

  • improves blood circulation
  • speeds up metabolism
  • strengthens the immune system
  • normalizes the functioning of the kidneys, heart, liver.

This is not a complete list of its healing effects on the human body. Physicians and nutritionists agree that honey should be used daily, but they urge to monitor the amount of its consumption. The general recommendation is to consume 50 g per day, which is about two tablespoons. At this dose, this amber product:

  • has a healing effect on the body,
  • replenishes reserves of vitamins and minerals,
  • restores strength,
  • is a prophylaxis against the threat of liver and gastrointestinal diseases.

Advice. According to experts, honey should be consumed twice a day on a spoon - in the morning and in the evening.

Eating one spoon in the morning, a person charges his body with the energy necessary for a day at work. A glass of milk with a spoonful of sweet amber before bed is an excellent sedative to help cope with insomnia.

The opinion of beekeepers

Nevertheless, the use of honey, according to the opinion of experienced beekeepers, should also be based on the individual perception of this product by a person. Each has its own daily rate, which depends on:

  • health conditions,
  • diet,
  • lifestyle,

  • diet,
  • personal taste preferences.
Attention! It is worth considering that honey belongs to allergens, so the presence of allergic reactions also affects the amount of treats consumed.

You also need to remember that this is a high-calorie product. 100 grams of the treat contains 350 calories. And since the number of calories consumed must be related to the energy expended, then for a healthy person who regularly does physical labor, the amount of honey eaten every day can be much higher than for those who lead a sedentary lifestyle.

Thus, despite the fact that honey is a very tasty delicacy, its consumption should be dosed. Doctors recommend eating about two tablespoons a day. Beekeepers recommend listening to your body, taking into account your lifestyle and not forgetting about the tendency to allergies.

Is it necessary to register a PVC boat

Inflatable boats weighing less than 200 kg do not require a registration process if they are operated in closed water areas related to internal aquatic resources. If such boats are operated in water areas bordering on other states, then such registration bears an irrevocable character.

Apart from this, inflatable boats weighing more than 200 kg and which are equipped with motors with a power of more than 10 HP, require an inevitable registration in the general procedure. According to the legislation, after purchasing a floating craft, all documents must be drawn up for it within 10 calendar days. In the same definitions, the registration of the purchased outboard motor is carried out, with the following entry into the municipal register.

If the boat has gone through the modernization process, then you need to be governed by the requirements of the law, if there is a question about whether it needs to be registered. In any case, even after the repair, if the boat was equipped with an outboard motor, you will have to re-register an inflatable boat made of PVC material.
