Hi AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about using silent baits:
Now you might be wondering to yourself what is this AMFisH guy talking about silent baits, what silent baits everything these days has rattles in it! Well you are pretty close to be 100% correct on that but there are a few silent baits out there still, as some manufacturers have gone back to making a silent bait.
A good example of this is jerkbaits and crankbaits, most of us know them to have rattles in them, so many rattles in fact that you can hear the bait from 10ft away, BUT silent baits are not as common as they were many years ago. You can still find some crankbaits and other minnow style baits on the market that are 100% rattle free, either made of wood like some of the great Rapala baits or plastic with no internal rattles like some of the Strike King and Bomber baits.
Noise is important in a bait when it comes to fishing, helps give off extra vibration, which can trigger aggressive strikes and also help the fish track the bait down easier. The thing is sometimes you want to present a bait to the fish that makes no noise, WHY well fish do get used to baits after a while so changing what you present to them and how you present it is a key thing. Silent baits come in handy when you come across areas where the fish are not going after a noisy bait, them after you take a closer look you notice that bait fish are not scurrying around quickly, they are moving a lot slower and pausing here and there, this is when you can take advantage of the silent bait attack!
As I mentioned you can find a few of these you just need to read the packages to ensure they are silent baits. Having a few in your tackle box can give you a definite advantage on those slower days when the fish are not into a noisy bait.
Hope you found this post helpful.
