Hi fellow AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about going old school with baits sometimes:
With so many different baits on the market we sometimes forget about baits we used to catch a lot of fish on, hence why I decided to shoot this vlog about going old school!
I am pretty sure you all have some of those older fishing baits, maybe a jerkbait with no rattles in it made of wood, or a slender looking old style top water frog and in my case a simple black 6″ finesse worm, whatever it is pull them out of those tackle boxes and use them.
Soft plastics for example have come a very long way, BUT that simple black worm to me is beyond priceless sometimes as everyone else is potentially using all the new style plastics and as you may or may not know fish do get used to seeing the same baits over and over again, but to that point they also see the same live bait they eat all their lives. The point I am making is use those simple old school baits sometimes, they can make for an amazing day of fishing!
Simple will in most cases beat fancy/flashy, WHY well it’s simple to fish it is an easy meal. Most of the time the presentation of these simple baits is too hard for them to resist, as the action or look is stands out that much more than whatever someone else might be using that day or most of the people may be using.
Old school is a great way to get into some fish that you would more than likely not end up catching, so have a stash of some of those old school baits with you and when nothing else seems to be working pull a few out and give them a try!
Hope you enjoyed this post….tight lines.
