The bleak is a fish of the cyprinid family. It occurs in Europe, from the White Sea in the north to Caucasus in the south. Bleak is common in rivers, lakes, ponds with flowing water and reservoirs. It can also be found in brackish water in bays and estuaries. It prefers open water and avoids overgrown areas, but it enjoys staying near bridges and posts. This fish is spry, it lives in schools. It feeds on plankton, insect larvae, aquatic plants, pollen, fish roe.
The body of bleak is elongated and flat. On its belly, there is a keel without scaling. Its back is grayish blue with green shimmer, its sides and belly are light with metallic luster. The fins are gray. The anal fin is rather long. Its mouth is turned upwards. The bleak has big thin fragile scales. In the old times, the so-called “pearl essence” (used in making artificial pearls) was extracted from bleak scales. The bleak reaches a maximum length of 20 cm and a maximum weight from 60 to 70 g. Lake- and pond-dwelling bleak are usually bigger than river bleak.

Hi,

I am level 8, tele rod, and so far didn't catch any single bleak (Mosquito lake). Various times of day, small hooks and line, various depth - nothing. I am a beginner, but I have caught decent number of other species in this lake and in real life bleak should be pretty easy to catch and there will be plenty of it.

As for the bait for a bleak - in 'records' section I saw that people mostly use worm and maggot, but everything else for catching a bleak - from conditions to rig - is a mystery to me, so please point me in right direction..

Try where the camp is with maggot in the middle of the long sandy area. Face the open water not that far out 4m 5m pole. Bleak are predominantly Surface feeders but the game doesn't seem to recognise that fact. I had all mine on or closer to the bottom:)

I can't figure how to target focus on bleak for the orders at Old Burg. Maggots and Flies work well at any depth, but they seem to be soooo randomish.
