Therefore, in forest lakes, due to the fact that there is not enough food, there are only perches, which over time can turn into huge animals, weighing more than 50 kg.
The alkalinity of water and its colour, and accordingly the taste of the fish will depend on water supply. In the majority of Karelian lakes, water marsh, with a dark brown tint. Although there are many lakes and clear water with a bluish tint (in Orosei for example). Fish in such clear water are very shy. Therefore, in lakes with dark water one can catch at a short distance from the shore, but the lure with clear water will have to throw away a few meters.
The banks of the Karelian lakes densely overgrown with bushes and trees. To fish from the banks is not always safe. On the way to overgrown lakes you can often find a kind of box covered with seaweed where the depth can reach several meters and there is ice cold water.
