Fishing nalema: what you need to know

Fishing burbot, as a rule, begins when the water temperature drops below 12-13 degrees.
In the summer, the fish hide in shallow pits,under driftwood or concrete slabs, where it can be caught with bare hands: after all, this predator in the heat, almost not eating, falls into a hibernation and is activated after frosts.
In autumn, fishing on burbot is carried out mainlyat night. Hungry for the summer, he scours the water, adhering, basically, deep waters, but gradually getting closer to the shore in search of food.

Therefore, the largest number of bays of burbot is at the confluence of dark water and light from the fire.
