For fishing friends who like Taiwan fishing, bait matching is the basic skill, but bait opening is the same as drifting, which is a skill that cannot be introduced quickly in Taiwan fishing. Therefore, there are statements of several years of Taiwan fishing, several years of bait opening or several years of drifting. The reason is related to the eating characteristics of fish, which is a changing process in different seasons. In addition, there are too many kinds of bait now, which is really very difficult to master. For bait, it is necessary to open a single bait first, and then learn a variety of bait collocation, so as to master the skill of bait collocation more easily.
I. Flavor Type of Bait
Different fishes have different eating characteristics, and the biggest difference lies in the taste type. Even for the same fish, under different seasonal and climatic conditions, the requirements for bait flavor types are different. The so-called taste type can also be understood as the main attack bait in bait matching. Bait collocation is usually composed of three categories: basic bait, main attack bait and state bait. The so-called basic bait is bait with light taste or preserving the original taste of grain. This bait is eaten by almost all fish, but its taste type is not prominent and it does not have very good fish luring effect. State bait may not need to be used. For example, wire drawing powder, snow pollen and bran are all state bait to adjust the dry, loose, sticky and soft bait. The main attack bait is to make the bait present a certain taste type, which can ensure that many kinds of fish can eat it, but some fish prefer it. Taste types also need to be unified. For example, crucian carp likes fragrance, carp likes sweetness and grass carp likes acid. Not all three kinds of fish like the bait of the three taste types, but most likely all three kinds of fish don’t like it. Therefore, keeping the taste pattern unified is the first element of bait matching.
II. Status of Bait
The state of the bait is the most important point except the taste type. The state contains more contents. For example, dry and loose, soft and sticky, and specific gravity can be said to be indicators of bait status. Fish like to eat soft but not hard, eat small but not big. Therefore, the state of the bait directly affects the palatability. The bait is better to enter and is easier to be eaten by fish. This is very important. For example, there are many small fish, and we usually use more heavy bait, so the bait is faster. Some sticky bait will also be used, so the atomization effect is poor and it is relatively difficult to recruit small fish. For big fish, the fish mouth is good, and the bait condition can be worse, such as harder and palatable. If the fish mouth is not good, especially in the season of low water temperature, the bait must be in good condition, so that the light-mouthed fish can easily eat the bait, which is very important. Dried powder is easy to lure fish, but it is also easier to recruit small fish. Sticky, soft and hard do not recruit small fish, but the ability to lure fish is poor.
3. Shape of Bait
The shape of the bait is related to the technique of the bait and to the bait itself. For example, it is easier to catch crucian carp by pulling bait than by rubbing bait. Apart from lighter bait and better palatability, more natural shape is also a key point. There are many shapes of bait rubbing, and the specific gravity and viscosity of bait can be changed through the number of times of rubbing to control the atomized water layer. Different shapes will also affect the atomization effect, such as round bait balls, and the atomization effect is much worse than that of triangles. In addition to rubbing and pulling bait, there is also scraping bait. This kind of bait has a more natural shape and a better entrance. It often has miraculous effects in seasons when the fish mouth is not good. Incidentally, the problem of self-made bait is that it is best not to use lumps in self-made bait, such as pumpkin pieces, sweet potato pieces and other angular bait, which may cause fish to dare not eat.
Four, bait hook
Fish will only be caught if they eat the bait on the hook, at least this is the case for most medium-sized fish, so the hook attachment seems insignificant, but it is crucial. For example, when face bait is used for fishing in wild fishing, the reason for the fish’s situation leads to the fact that the bait does not have a mouth soon after it is in place, and the bait needs to absorb water, expand, atomize and other steps before the fish comes to eat. It can even be said that the reason why fish can be caught is that the bait remains on the hook, which is called hook attachment. For example, fishing in deep water must have good hook attachment, otherwise it will become empty hook fishing. In the words of veteran fishermen, there is still a little residue on the hook when the rod is exchanged for bait. Such bait is more capable of catching fish.
These are some precautions for bait matching, hoping to help all fishing friends. Bait collocation should be good at summarizing, taste type, state, bait-water ratio, etc. Once a single bait is opened, multiple bait collocation can be mastered slowly. Let the bait rub can pull can draw nest, nature is out of the question. If you like, please pay attention to it and give it a compliment. Update it on time every day. Thank you, fishing friends!
