Fishing Games - Tips To Hook Live Bait When Live Bait Is Plentiful

TOP FISHING GAMES

If plenty of live baits are available, hook the fish upside down through its stomach. The severely injured fish will struggle and give off distress signals of a dying fish, attracting the predators from all around. Cutting off the tail also does same things; in addition the blood leaves a scent trail for the predators to follow. However, the live bait does not live very long when it is baited this way, thus the need for plenty of live bait.

"The hook should not penetrate the fish’s lateral line, or else it will be killed. Keep the hook above the sensitive lateral line".

"Hook the live bait between the caudal fin and tail below the lateral line when fishing with running sinker rigs on the bottom in slow or still waters".


Squid and Octopus

When using squid and octopus, its need to be handled gently. Hook the squid at the top of the head, just a little; too much and the squid will die. The head is the pointy part, opposite to the tentacles. The octopus is hooked up in very much the same way. However, watch out for the sharp beak in its mouth below the tentacles.

"Make sure hook squid just through the tip of the head".


Prawns

Prawns are favored live bait for estuary fish. There are several methods to rig a prawn. One of them is to gently hook it up behind the head at the shoulder, just lightly through the shell. Do not hook too deep because it will be killed. Another method is to hook it through the tail. The use of thick wire hooks will kill the delicate prawn. Quality fine wire hooks like the high carbon hooks are the best suited for this task.

Fishing Tips - Gang Hooks For Those That Snatch And Run (Top Fishing Games)

TOP FISHING GAMES

Gang Hooks are great for fishes that snatch and run before attempting to swallow the bait. Examples are long toms, silver grunters and snappers. You can use no. 2/0 big eye hooks. Slip the point of the hook through the eye of the second hook. Then pierce a piece of silver colored sequin to prevent the hook from dislodging free. The number of hooks used is dependent on the size of the bait fish. Start hooking the bait fish with the end hook and the back of the head, followed by the second one just below the dorsal fin and so on. Avoid piercing the lateral line so as to keep the bait fish alive.
