Fishing accessories need to match the type of fishing rod



For quality fishing, we need to pay attention to the bait. Bait plays a significant role in whether fishing is successful or not. Do not think that only good bait is enough, but each type of fish, each fishing position, has a completely different requirement for bait.

About the location of the fishing: 

  • Usually, when we learn, we know that bait has 2 forms: natural bait and self-processing bait. If fishing in lakes, ponds, we should use homemade lures such as industrial food, potatoes, bananas, and when fishing in rivers or sea, you should use natural bait is shrimp, worms, crickets, snails.

About each type of fish: 

  • Floating fish like carp, catfish, or tilapia, they often like to eat bait like shrimp or banana. For the fish that are living at the bottom level, they like to eat shrimp bait or fake bait. 
  • Additionally, if youre in a place that doesnt allow chum, use a zig rig when youre fishing in the middle of the day. Often, youll see carp cruising around the surface, and theyre just not interested in anything, thats when you use a zig rig, thats the perfect time to use a zig rig. 

Besides that, regardless of the type of fish or fishing in any location, you need to choose the right bait for successful fishing.

How to jerk the fishing rods

Not everyone knows how to jerk the fishing rods. A lot of people still lose their prey even when the fish bite the bait.

We should note the following jerk method:

  • When you see the float running in any direction, we jerk the stick in the opposite direction is the hook will pin into the fishs mouth.
  • When you see a sudden fast float, you should not hesitate, but should jerk it vertically.
  • If you see the buoy is pulled a short distance and then stop, if needed, it is just lucky because that fish only takes the bait and release it.

To jerk a fishing rod also needs “art”.
