Spinning lures are the widest and most interesting class of all fishing lures in general. There are more than 10 varieties of wobblers alone. And silicone baits can generally be of any shape, for example, fish, toad, worm, crustacean, beetle, and even squid. You can find lures in the wild as well as purchase something unique, for example, Fishing Superstore's saltwater lures.
Three types of the worm are used: ordinary rain, red, and "golden tail" (dung). The common earthworm is the most common. Most of the worms that live in earthen holes are extremely sensitive to any kind of shaking of the earth, while they try to disappear instantly.
We are talking about especially large specimens of such species of salmon (the latter are found in heavily overgrown reservoirs). Other worms are used as fish feed. The worm is put on the hook in the following way: the sting of the hook is pulled through almost the entire worm.
So, in a fast current or reservoirs overgrown with aquatic vegetation, the bait can break off the hook. Then they resort to a less well-known method of baiting a hook (the worm is put on in such a way that it takes the form of a closed ring). The redworm can be found under rotten foliage. The red worm is an excellent bait in the warm season in clear waters for almost all types of fish that peck at the worm. The fact is that several such worms are planted on one hook, which together forms, as it were, a ball.
The boxes are placed in a dark place in the basement and care is taken to maintain the necessary soil moisture. Meat-dwelling worms are also a good bait. Removing worms from a jar is easy. To do this, it is filled with bran or sand, after which the worms hastily leave their home through a hole in the bottom.
- Insects: butterflies and grasshoppers
For catching predatory fish in winter, caterpillars of a certain type of butterfly are excellent bait. They hibernate in hollow stems of wormwood and burdock. They are put on a hook in the same way as meat worms.
For catching large non-predatory fish (chub), as well as salmon, May, and June beetles, grasshoppers are valuable baits. Insects are killed before being baited. Even though these insects are large, they use them in fast currents only with a float and a load. Otherwise, they will simply float to the surface of the water, and then there will hardly be a bite. Some types of butterflies can serve as baits (for example, a night moth for fishing a chub and an ide). Caddisfly larvae are widespread. They can be found in shallow water bodies on stems or rocks. The larva is freed from the shell, put on the tip of the hook, and used in many types of sport fishing. Among the baits of plant origin, dough baits occupy a special place. Some anglers prefer baits from black bread, others - from white. Some also use special additives to enhance the tactile qualities of the lure, although this is unnecessary. But what you need to pay special attention to: before kneading the bait, you need to thoroughly wash and rinse your hands (especially to wash off particles of tobacco and drops of sweat). Otherwise, unnecessary impurities can spoil the bite.
Large non-predatory fish willingly take pieces of bread that float on the surface of the water (naturally, hooked). The same bread balls are used at depth during winter fishing. Various baits (wheat, hemp, barley, etc.) are often used to catch non-predatory fish. They are prepared in a short time. First boiled, then placed in a loosely closed thermos for a couple of hours. It should be borne in mind that not very soft grains that are planted on one hook several pieces at once are considered ready. Peas and beans are also cooked and used. When attaching all easily slipping baits, it is best to use a needle to put the baits on the hook. In extreme cases, you can get by with a sharp stalk.
A special place among baits for non-predatory fish (especially carp) is occupied by potatoes. Boil it until half cooked, peel it and use a special needle to bait it on a tee (this is the best option) or a single hook. It is advisable to pre-feed in the evening or at least a few hours before the start of fishing. Under the influence of a strong current, the remains of vegetables and fruits, as well as bread crumbs, will be washed out of the feeder and slowly settle to the bottom where the hook is located.
When catching too cautious large non-predatory fish, anglers use a special rod holder, which allows you to place the rod at a fairly high height from the surface of the water, thereby not scaring away the extra-cautious fish.
