The main problem of clear water and the fish very carefully, and it is necessary to know the features of national fishing. In many large reservoirs there are ways of catching inherent in this place. For example, in Estonia on the Gulf struck me way perch in winter with ice on a spinning – it’s fantastic. Crete interesting sposoblovli mullet. A large piece of bread wrapped with fishing line from 6 – 9 hooks and fill up in the sea. This way you can catch both the spinning and just throwing a large coil hand. And the bait caught mainly on small tee. Bite – salpa (sea roach), mullet, Sargos and other fish. Bait – bread, worms, shrimp, small crabs (you can catch on the shore in the evening).
