The best time of day to catch a crucian is considered to be early morning, before 9–10 am.
In the evening the crucian also takes very well, although worse than in the morning. In some places, and maybe everywhere, on hot days, when crucians walk in the sun, their best bite is around noon. However, at this time they take almost on top. There are, finally, ponds, where the crucian carp is best taken at night. Large, more than 500 grams, crucian everywhere falls for the bait only in the early morning or late evening.
A crucian carp is a sluggish and lazy fish, wanders little and rarely, even less often a tench, and almost never moves away from the parking lot. Benefit food, that is, grass, algae and tina, he has at his side. But like all fish with fleshy lips, his taste and smell are quite well developed. The carp loves to feast on and smells the odorous bait from a fairly considerable distance, even in standing water, where the smell spreads in all directions, and not in one direction alone, as in a river. The more fragrant the bait, the better, and therefore it is flavored with various odorous oils - linseed, hemp, to which add a few drops of some essential oil - anise, mint, orange. The latter have undoubtedly a great attraction for crucians. In the old days it was believed that crucians were very good at bait, moistened with kerosene. In the 19th century, a well-known Moscow angler quite successfully drove crucians into the ponds of the Peter's Academy, dropping a flask with a hair tube inserted into the cork from which kerosene dripped to the bottom. For the convenience of fishing, he made a pre-deep hole. Actually, the bait served bread, buckwheat and millet porridge, also cottage cheese; the latter was lowered into the water in a paper bag or in a bag of redkina and was considered almost the best bait.

The crucian carp spawns no earlier than the water warms to 18–20 degrees, that is, in the second half of May - June. Spawning with long breaks continues throughout the summer, than carp is different from most other fish. During spawning, the carp is caught a little worse. In the summer the crucian is much more capricious than in the spring. Now he is better at pecking on vegetable baits - porridge, canned corn, semolina, fishing dough, and so on. Good results are brought by catching large carp on carp tackle. In winter, the crucian carps digs into the mud and hibernates. True, lately, perhaps because of global warming, in some lakes the crucian carcass does not hibernate, and continues to be caught even from under the ice.
