Perch – predatory fish
This is a very interesting and extremely ancient type of fish (his ancestors appeared on Earth in the upper Cretaceous period) found in almost all water bodies of Ukraine. And some of them perch, often as the only representative of the ichthyofauna. Interesting is that in Russia in ancient times the meat of perch was considered a medicinal, beneficial effect on genital organs of men and women.
Perch river has an extensive range in fresh water, both Europe and Asia. It even brought in Australia, New Zealand and Africa. Moreover, some of the life he so relished that he began to reach gigantic proportions. So, for example, the Nile perch, a very highly respected among anglers not only Egypt, but all over the world, can in adulthood grow to two! meters and gain the weight to 120kg. Due to its size, this giant in all places of his habitation “trampled” by other river predators.
Of course, we, in Ukraine, its dimensions are considerably more modest (weight, in rare cases, reaches the 2-kg mark and a length of 20-50cm), which, however, does not prevent him to have in your diet many other freshwater fish.
Bass prefer to live in lowland ponds, but along with rivers, lakes and ponds, it can be seen also in kaimanisaared parts of seas near river mouths.
Find perch we have almost year-round, but still, it is the most popular trophy fishermen, in winter. At this time of year bass are most active and biting well on fish trifle, worms, leeches, maggots, offal, ignoring the only packing plant of origin.
However, winters is caught mostly small perch, but, but, given his gregarious way of life, it’s easily possible to catch a lot, not changing the place. Even small perch pecking quite intensely, greedily swallowing the bait, which, of course, stirs the interest of the angler.
Of course, you can try to catch giant perch, but, for this, at least, have to go to Neal. And how to carry production to the Ukraine to show to friends and acquaintances? After all, photo and video testimonies in our time of continuous falsifications, few will believe.
