The first method of winter making a fish trap with your own hands is as follows. Think about where in the reservoir, in your opinion, is the most fish. In the selected place, in the ice, make a recess, a small pit. Its dimensions should be approximately 1.5 m wide and 4 m long. The bottom of the pit should reach the water, and leave a layer of lower ice about 5-6 cm thick. In the corner, make a hole, about? sq.m.Wait until the pit is filled with water. After that, the fish will swim into the trap itself, but they will not be able to swim away. You just have to catch her net.
Recycle Bin Method
The second way will tell you how to make a trap for fish in ice. Cut two ice holes in the ice at a distance of two meters from each other. Connect the hole with a groove, which should be continued in the ice, about 1/3 the thickness of the ice cover. Insert a basket into one hole, and with another shovel a water shovel into a hole with a basket. Thus, you will create a current and a fish that is close to it will fall into the hole, and then into the basket.
Method using plastic bottles
Not only for winter fishing, people have learned how to make traps. Recently, fish traps from plastic bottles that can be used at any time of the year have become very popular. In order to make such fish traps, video lessons are not needed. Take a clean one and a half or five-liter bottles. Cut them in two, about a third from the top. After that, remove the cap from the top of the bottle, turn it with the neck inside and insert it into another part.Then punch holes along the edge of the trap and secure both parts with a fishing line or rope, no matter what they move. If your trap is made from a five-liter bottle, then pierce the holes at the bottom of the bottle, so that it does not float. Attach a long rope to the bottom of the bottle so that it is convenient to get the trap out of the water and collect the catch. It is better to make several such traps, using all the free bottles. Place a bait in the trap: pieces of bread, an insect or soaked cereal. Install traps against the current.
Of course, in this way you will not catch a rich catch, but seven or eight fish in your ear is guaranteed. And do not forget when your fishing has come to an end, be sure to remove all the traps.
