[Fishing Skills] Analysis of Walking Skills for Fishing Big Fish with Small Hook and Thin Line

We all know that the technology of walking fish is the strongest, it is the most important thing in the whole fishing, and it is the key link to successfully catch the big fish with the middle hook, which should not be underestimated.Let’s talk about the skills of walking fish when fishing big fish with small hooks and thin lines.

Due to the small lifting force of the hook, there will be no severe pain when stabbing the fish, and the big fish will not be frightened basically, but it will often occur that the pole cannot be lifted. However, this is not the big fish piling, but the heavy weight of the fish, the small strength of our pole lifting and the soft pole, and the small hook used. The big fish’s lips are thick and do not feel pain and will not struggle. As long as this happens, you must leave the fishing position immediately, but you must not stand up.

If the big fish floats up from the bottom, you can stand up. If there is an empty field behind you, you can use all possible opportunities to retreat behind you.In principle, the farther back, the greater the chance of catching big fish.When the big fish finds danger and flees forward, it can make full use of the distance of retreat as a buffer. As the big fish moves forward with the pulling force, it can basically control the big fish from fleeing.

If the big fish does not float up from the bottom, it is necessary to tilt the pole to the left or right in time (to the side without obstacles), and gradually force the bow pole, using the overall elastic traction of the pole, line and hook to force the big fish to turn left or right, leaving no chance for the big fish to flee to the deep water area ahead. After successfully forcing the big fish to turn around, it must move along with the direction in which the big fish swims, but it must not stand up. During this period, under the condition that the pole, hook and line can bear it, the bow pole should be strengthened, and the big fish should swim to the shore, and every possible opportunity should be used to retreat behind, and the big fish should be allowed to leave the bottom as much as possible to prevent the hook.



After the big fish leaves the bottom, it is necessary to stand up in time to increase the height of risks and the space for walking the fish. When the big fish dives, it can crouch down and lower the height to buffer. However, the big fish must not be led to walk on the water to prevent the big fish from being frightened by figures and pole shadows and causing uncontrollable situations.

Because the hook line used is thin, during walking the fish, the strength of the empty rod should be gentle, and we should know fairly well, just like our hearts treat children to gently appease their emotions. Otherwise, because the fish is large, the hook is small, and the thread is thin, the weight advantage of the big fish will lead to the thread breaking and the fish fleeing, which is very important. When controlling the fish, try to add force and gently lead the big fish to the place you want it to go. We must not rush for success in one step, which will have the opposite effect.

When fishing in summer and autumn, due to the high water temperature, the struggle force of the fish is large, and the explosive force is fast and fierce. Some big fish are quick to respond and will flee forward at the moment of the middle hook, leaving no chance for fishermen to respond. To deal with such fish, we should make it fast and fast. We should tilt the rod to the left or right to control the fish while lifting the rod. We can bow the rod and play a role in half a beat of the fish first.



Under the overall traction of the pole, hook and line, the fish head is forced to deviate from the “runway” before rushing forward and fleeing, and the height of the pole is reduced as much as possible to extend the water line. If the water on the shore is deep, insert the front half of the pole into the water if possible to add a little negligible resistance to the big fish. If the water on the shore is shallow, you can take a few steps into the water in time, which can play a buffering role and effectively relieve the explosive force of the big fish rushing forward.

This series of killer tricks were completed in a few seconds. It can also be said that the mechanical movements and good habits formed during years of fishing can be done without thinking. If you want to do it again, the initiative will be at the other end of the fish, and running the fish off the line is the inevitable result. However, we should always pay attention to the angle of the pole and the big fish, and adjust in time to keep the pole arched all the time, so that the pole, line and hook can give full play to the best state of overall elasticity. Otherwise, if you neglect it a little, you will break the line and run away, and all your achievements will be wasted.
