More on making sure baits are running right…

Once you pay attention to the bait running right on every cast you will see the difference as you continue to fish BUT it does not end here.   Now you focus on the other things that can impact a bait running right, this is where people get a little lazy.   I am taking about “WEEDS” ! ! !  Those damn weeds, slimy ones and regular ones damn do they ever stick to  a bait and drives us fisherman nuts, well it’s part of the game as fish leave in them so there is no real escape from them.

Check you bait for weeds being hung up on the bait body, swivel, line, leader, hooks, o rings, pretty much anywhere on it, and make sure you remove every little piece.  No granted a tinny little piece on a leader could go undetected to a fish that strikes the tail end of the bait, BUT that is not why I am bring this up obstructions like weeds can impact how the bait runs through the water, basically compromising the action of it.

Very crucial thing to consider as it’s far too easy to say “ah it’s just a little piece whatever”, well you might just be saying whatever to a fish of a lifetime, would not be much fun if that was the case.

Take the few seconds it takes to focus in on little details like this, in the end it could result in some great catches that may not have happened for you.

Why try new baits on the market…

I have noted in previous blog messages that you can get into fishing and do well with a small select group of baits BUT as a fisherman you will see that there are new products coming to the market all the time and trying some of them is not only a fun thing to do, but it allows you to add to your arsenal of baits !

Trying new products is just one of the things that comes with becoming a good fisherman, because manufacturers are constantly trying to come up with new innovative products that will produce fish.

As a fisherman you will not have a choice several years later but to end up with a lot of different baits, WHY because it is the nature of the beast !  You will find products on sale that you just can’t resist picking up, you will want to have more then one of the same bait for backup reasons, you will come of with strategies on the water that require you to have multiple styles of soft plastic baits for different situations, the list goes on and on !

Experimenting with new products is something that most fisherman will do for one really and one reason only……….”it’s fun’ ! ! !
