When the weather gets hot, it will be more difficult to fish during the day. It's not that the angler is afraid of the sun, mainly because the mouth of the fish is not good. Especially in some relatively shallow waters, fish float up many times during the day. Only when the temperature drops at night can you catch a few.
If you choose night fishing, we must first consider whether to use night fishing lights or luminous floats. Secondly, if we use luminous floats, which kind of luminous floats is better to use.
I have already written an article about the choice between lights and floats. Today I will mainly talk about how to choose floats, because everyone knows that luminous floats are relatively "dull", and the throwing is not smooth, and the signals may not be given in time. Therefore, the correct choice is the prerequisite for fishing well.
Buying a luminous float, the expensive one may not be suitable
Everyone knows that luminous drift is generally blunt, so some people think that as long as the price is high, it is enough, and the price is not blunt.
From the perspective of sensitivity alone, the expensive ones are indeed generally better than the cheaper ones, including workmanship and painting. Of course, except for those unscrupulous merchants selling junk goods at high prices.
However, the above is only from the single level of sensitivity. In fact, we are fishing for fish instead of fighting for sensitivity. No matter how sensitive the float is, the fish will not bite.
In addition, it also depends on how you adjust and use it. A good float will not be able to produce the signal you want. On the contrary, if you can adjust the less sensitive float correctly, you will still be comfortable fishing.
My habit is to use cheap luminous floats for fishing carp and grass carp with relatively large individuals, about a dozen yuan per piece. The reason is very simple. Fishing for big fish does not need to be sensitive, and sometimes even Deliberately blunt. In addition, fishing for big fish may be disconnected, and cheap drifting is not distressing.
If you want to catch a fish with a very small and light mouth, especially in a deep place, you can buy a better floater with a higher sensitivity.
To buy a luminous float, what else do we have to look at besides the price
The first point is the amount of lead. This is the same as choosing normal floats, small fish use small floats, big fish use big floats. But when picking luminous floats, in addition to the amount of lead we eat, we must pay special attention to the weight of the floats.
If the float's own weight exceeds the amount of lead, try not to choose it, because it will feel top-heavy when using it. As a result, it will not be thrown far and inaccurately. The hook bait is always in the same position as the float or even behind the float. .
The second point is drift tail and brightness. Some floats have very thick tails, and then they are particularly bright. If you stick it on the wall and look at it, you can see that a small circle around it is illuminated.
Some floats have finer tails and lower brightness. The low brightness is not the kind that is not clear, but the light source is not so divergent when it is attached to the wall.
If you are catching big fish, we mostly use long rods. At this time, we focus on seeing clearly, and the sensitivity does not need to be considered, so we buy the ones with thick tails and high brightness.
For small fish, buy the thinner the tail, the better, the rod is not long, and the brightness should not be too high, otherwise staring at the eyes for a long time is painful, and the tail is too bright, and each eye will not be so clear.
Then it is best to buy small fishes that are waterless (it's okay to catch big fish), which can provide a lot of convenience for watching drifters.
The third point is that everyone should pay attention to the length of each target of the floating tail. For big fish, choose a longer one to avoid a lot of false signals. For small fish, it is best to choose broken ones to better capture small movements.
Some floats will have a small thick ball at the tail. The advantage is that you can see it more clearly, but the disadvantage is that the sensitivity is reduced. You can choose according to your needs.
Is it good for fish to change color after biting the hook?
This is the question of the benevolent sees the benevolence, the wise sees the wisdom, if you feel that it is easy to worry about, or feel very novel, you can of course buy it, but I personally will not buy it.
First of all, I think that watching the drifting catch is one of the main pleasures of fishing. If you only need to decide whether to lift the rod according to the change of the drifting tail color, then it is meaningless, just like that kind of automatic fishing device.
Secondly, there are many problems with bleaching that changes color when a fish bites a hook. If it is designed to be very sensitive, it will cause the wind to blow, the wave to turn, or the fish to rub the line, and the small fish to change color.
If the design is not so sensitive, it will cause the fish to have eaten the bait into the mouth, and the float has not changed color, especially when fishing for light mouth fish, the normal drift phase may be a light point and a slight slip, while the color drift may change. It will be judged that it is water currents and small fishes, and will not change color.
To put it bluntly, this kind of color-changing drift can't respond to the signal of fish hooking in a timely and correct manner, and even affect our judgment of catching the mouth.
But this is just my idea. Some people may think that the color changer is very useful. There are very few empty poles in a hundred shots, so you should figure it out by yourself.
Finally, talk about how to adjust the luminous drift
In fact, it is not much different from ordinary floats. I won't talk about big fish, even if you don't adjust the float, you can directly catch the lead. If you are fishing for a smaller fish, I suggest lowering the eye-fishing, for example, adjusting the four or five eyes and fishing two or three.
Adjust the float and find the bottom. After the fishing is officially started, I suggest that you move the float up and down to test it. For example, if you are adjusting 5 to 3, then the next few rods, after hooking up the bait, move the float up and towards Scroll down one or two eyes to see if there is any change in the floater.
If you move the float up and down, and the fishing eye is still 3, it is either not to the bottom, or to the bottom.
