In the article we will talk about the ways of fitting various baits. You will learn how best to hook on the hook of a worm and moldy worm, bread and corn, bloodworms, bear and other bait. And first, let's talk about the most "traditional" lures: worm and maggots.
How to hook on a worm hook
Virtually any worm can be hooked up in several ways. The only thing that needs to be taken into account is that it must, firstly, be mobile, and secondly, fit the hook in size and, of course, the fish that will be caught on it. It is best to put a red dung worm on a hook, and pierce it either by the edge, or in the middle, or several times so that it curls into a ring. Enough for small fishplant one worm, and for larger fish, two or more.
Some fishermen before cutting the worm, cut it into pieces, but this is appropriate only in the case when there is a catch of small fish.But even in this case, experienced anglers do not advise doing this, since when cutting, the worm, of course, becomes practically immobile, which significantly reduces the attractiveness of the bait for any fish. For small fish it is better to just use small worms. Note that the red dung (as well as rain and river) worm is a truly universal bait, since almost any fish bite at it: from bleak and white bream to perch and carp. And besides, the worm is suitable for catching any tackle: mormyshkami, floats, feeders, etc.
How to properly fit on the hook of the maggot
As many know, maggots are the larvae of flies, and now, unlike in past times, to find the required number of maggots is not difficult in any place. Maggot is good because it can catch almost any fish at any time of the year, while maggot provides a good bite almost always. Also note that the larvae of the flies are great on the hook, and in many cases, even after you have caught the fish on the moldy worm, you can use it again. Well, to the other advantages of the moldy worm we assign a long shelf life (with a negativetemperature) and low price.
With regard to the correct mounting of moldy worm on the hook, we note that there is nothing difficult in this. The only thing that needs to be taken into account is the diameter of the hook. For the moldy worm it is worth using a thin hook, since the larva remains mobile for longer. Piercing the larva is better in the place of greatest thickening and in such a way that the end of the hook comes out. Do not forget to check the mobility of maggots after each cast. In addition, we note that the combination of moldy worm with other baits, such as moth, can significantly improve the bite. You may also find this article helpful.
We plant corn, peas, barley, bread, dough
It would seem that the correct attachment of "inanimate" feed should not present any difficulties for any angler, but in practice it happens that such bait breaks almost no more often than worms. To avoid this, you just need to know a few simple rules. First, if you want to plant, for example, severalcorn grains on a small hook, do not even try to pierce them in the middle - on the contrary, you need to cling them to the edge, piercing the skin.
It is also useful to know that the best results are sometimes demonstrated by combined bait. Try, for example, plant two maggots with corn grain in between. Similarly, you can experiment with pearl barley, and with peas. As for bread and dough, these baits are best suited to catch non-predatory fish (ide, crucian carp, bream). Bread crumb well fit in the form of balls, while in front of the nozzle it is desirable to smear with odorous oil. Dough can also be flavored with butter - it attracts fish better.
Often, anglers stick a moth, piercing it through the head, but inIn most cases, this nozzle does not work, so it is worth considering another way. And practice shows that the best way to put a moth on a hook is a nozzle ring. Naturally, you need to properly select the size of the moth. And here the following rule applies: the more cautious the fish, the smaller the bloodworm should be used as bait.
This garden pest can actually serve as an excellent bait for various fish. But the best thing is to bite the catfish - many fishermen notice that the catfish is just like a drug for catfish.It is best to hook the bear by the hook along the body, entering at one end and leaving at the other. Also show themselves well as a bait combination "Medvedka + worm." For large fish, you can use the bait and a few Bears.
Here we will talk about bait-imitations. For example, twisters are calledlures imitating worms. The vibrotail is a bait imitating a small fish. With the help of twisters and vibrotails, you can catch different fish, the main thing is to know how to properly fit them. There are no special difficulties here, it is only important to remember that in the case of a vibratory tail the length of the forearm (the main long part) of the hook should be selected so that it is about a third of the length of the vibrotail, and in the case of the twister, half.
How to fit on the offset hook
Offset hook is a very useful invention, allowingreliably fit a variety of soft bait (due to the additional bending). Very good offset hooks are suitable for mounting bait-imitations, for example, silicone fish. To do this, pierce the "head" of the fish and go out to 0.5 cm from the side of the abdomen, and then pull the hook through the bait to bend the ear.Of course, there are other options for the use of offset hook - depending on the type of bait, but in most cases, the methods of bait baiting do not differ from those already described by us.
