[Fishing Skills] Experience in selecting fishing positions and fishing spots according to fish habitat and foraging habits

After the fishing grounds are selected, the fishing spots should be carefully selected.The selection of fishing points is not good. Even if there are good fishing skills and palatable bait, it is difficult to achieve ideal fishing effect.


The quality of fishing points is affected by many factors such as fish source, terrain, season, wind direction, water regime, water temperature, flow rate, etc. Therefore, when selecting fishing points, overall consideration should be given. Generally, the following principles should be mastered: first, there are fish in the waters; Second, there are fish swimming or gathering near the fishing point. The former is a prerequisite while the latter is a necessary condition.

All kinds of fishes have different habits. They often gather together in different nodules and inhabit fixed waters. Such as crucian carp, carp, etc., like to gather at the bottom of the water where there are obstacles or aquatic plants, or where there are ditches and ridges, and some fish like to gather near rocky piles and caves. When the temperature is high in summer, most fish like to gather in deep water or shade. If you hook at the place where fish gather, it is certainly a good fishing point. Fish have to look for food in order to survive. Plankton is abundant in places where aquatic plants are overgrown, water intakes where running water flows, docks where rice and vegetables are washed, etc. There is plenty of bait. Fish often gather in these places to look for food, which is also a good fishing point.

Better freshwater fishing spots generally have the following waters:

1. In the whirling water where rivers, streams and canals bend and the water flow slows down, such places are often good places for fish to rest, swim and forage, and are good fishing points.

2. Coastal waters with more aquatic plants in ponds, lakes and reservoirs, because fish do not like the environment with strong light and like relatively hidden places. Aquatic plants can block the sun. Moreover, there is sufficient oxygen in places with aquatic plants and fish have strong appetite. All kinds of microorganisms, plant debris, small insects and other fish have more food, so it is a water area where fish like to live and feed, and is suitable for fishing.

3. The whirling water on both sides of the bridge sluice and culvert outlet is not only slow in water flow, which is suitable for fish to stay and rest for food, but also has more fish food such as microorganisms, small insect carcasses, plant debris and the like stagnant, which is suitable for fishing points.

4. In coastal waters where ships, wooden rafts and bamboo rafts are moored, fish often inhabit and swim, and can also be used as fishing points.

5. There are trees or wooden stakes in the middle of the water and piles of stones along the banks of rivers, lakes, ponds and reservoirs, forming potholes and small caves at the bottom of the water. Fishing points can be set up in places suitable for fish to stay and inhabit.

6. The coastal waters with pigsty, bullpen and chicken and duck shed on the shore have dirt such as dung and juice seeping into the water, which is a favorite foraging place for fish and can be set up with fishing points.


7. The waters along the coast, where people live and are equipped with toilets, threshing grounds, granaries, cesspools and vegetable plots, and the waters into which various kinds of domestic sewage often flow, are places where fish like to stay and look for food and are better fishing spots.

8. The waters along rivers, lakes and ponds are equipped with quays for washing clothes, rice and vegetables. They are places where fish are willing to swim and feed, and are also good fishing spots for fishing.

9. When fishing in ponds, lakes and reservoirs, fishing points should be found near the water inlet and in the flowing water with slow flow.
