Отдых и Рыбалка в Карелии

There passed week since I returned, once again from the Northern fairy tale under the name Karelia. Behind the delight of the white nights, behind an ear, a fire, a bath and a sit-round gathering in an arbor, good company, transparent and thermal water of the forest lake, absence of people, mobile communication and electricity, behind great fishing, pike candles and "okunevy" places (will understand devoted)), behind century fir-trees and pines, magnificence and greatness of the Nature and is a lot more what behind... but the charge of cheerfulness, energy and impressions is received, and with them and a reason for memoirs, discussions and dreams, in hope again to return to this magic country!

January and February in Karelia are usually designated glukhozimy. On the street there are bitter colds to-40, and fish stays in easy hibernation. Light day short. This period - one of the best for catching of a burbot.

Burbot - cold-loving fish, the only representative of family the treskovykh living in fresh waters. The burbot is very widespread in lakes and the rivers of Karelia. In the trade way it is caught a little, snared seldom, however in the merezhakh - the frequent guest. The burbot comes across the amateur fisher's tackles quite often, usually - on a zherlitsa (samolovka) left for the night.

Catching of a burbot is simple, the tackle is artless. A piece of a cord with a sinker and unary hook No. 10-15. A nozzle - a live or dead small fish. Some amateur fishers catch a burbot on knock. In Kalevala, for example, such tackle was called "stukalky" (stuchalka). In fact, it is the same samolovka. Only the fisher freight actively knocks about a bottom, thus attracting a predator. More advanced fishers improved a tackle: before a troynichok put on a small phosphoric tubule which in the dark glows a fishing line, thereby draws attention of a burbot even stronger.

Come to us this winter behind the treasured burbot!
