This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – fishing with soft plastics!

Hi AMFisHers!  This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is all about soft plastic baits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuRUD9dYywg&feature=player_embedded

If you are into bass fishing then you know these baits are killer for catching fish, but there are some questions that I get asked frequently about these baits.   Which ones catch fish?  Which ones should I get for this fish?  Are more expensive ones better?    There are probably about another dozen or so common questions about these baits and In this video I discuss specific items about them.

Early fishing months you will want to stick to something with a much thinner profile, thin style worm, thin style creature bait, thin style curly tail, WHY well bait fish are still small at that time of the year, so using big bulky stuff will need to wait a few months.

When it comes to brands and which ones I saw pick baits that you will you will have confidence with, that is the key thing to consider with any bait.  Example if you use Berkley baits and have lots of confidence with that brand stick with it, BUT this is no way means don’t try something else because there could be a ZOOM product you really like the look of and think you can catch on it, that is the starting point of building confidence.

These are great baits and you will go through many some days, make sure you have several packages of your favourite ones…trust me on this!

Pick some up and give them a try you will quickly see they produce fish and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – how to Texas rig baits correctly.

Hi fishing world!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about how to Texas rig soft plastic baits: 


This is a great rig for bass fishing and there are some key things to note when rigging your soft plastics.  The key thing is to make sure your bait is sitting completely straight on the hook, this will allow it to rest correctly on the bottom when you are fishing.

Presentation wise this is a usually a slow presentation where you drop the bait in front of the face of a bass by flipping/pitching into thick structure areas.  The Texas rig will allow you to get your bait down through the layers of structure easier, as it is a slim setup with a bullet style sinker guiding your baits directly to the fish below.

You will always want to back your bait up and this means is once the first part of the hook is through the bait and all lined up you need to put the barb of the hook into a lower area of the bait to prevent it from stretching it too tightly.  Not easy to explain in words but I describe this in detail throughout the video.

Practice rigging your baits so you can do it easily, quickly and most importantly correctly each and every time, this way when the fish are biting and your soft plastic is all chewed up and needs to be changed, you can do so very quickly instead of missing out on fish.
