Trout Fishing Tactics to Improve Your Catch Rate.
Below, you'll find information on Trout Fishing Tactics and products to increase your catch rate.
Catching trout is an enjoyable pastime for many people. As trout
anglers, we're always looking for new and improved tactics to improve our catch rates, correct?
If we aren't we probably should be. Learning new things is not only important to trout fishing, but also life in general. It's what makes us know that we're alive, right?
In any case, below I'm going to lay out some of the most effective trout fishing tactics that I've ever come across and with any luck, you'll be able to use one or all of them to increase your hook-up rates.
I emphasize "hook-up", because I know these tactics will help you get more bites, but the fighting and reeling in is up to you.
Here we go.
* Watch Your Shadow - When trout fishing, where you're casting a shadow is important. You don't want to cast a shadow on the water or "hole" you're going to fish or fishing in. My mentor taught me that this "spooks" the hole, which means the trout in said hole are much less apt to bite. Pay attention to your shadow so as not to spook the hole.
* Present Your Offering Naturally - When fishing for trout, I prefer to use live bait. It's simply my favorite and most successful tactic. When presenting live bait, it must be presented naturally, and the most effective way to accomplish this is through the use of gang hooks. What are gang hooks? Gang
hooks are simply 2 small hooks tied in tandem, thus enabling you to present your bait (especially live worms) in a completely natural manner. Does just slapping your bait on a single hook work? Sure, for smaller more inexperienced fish. But if you would like to catch not only more trout but trophies and large trout as well, employ gang hooks whenever you use live bait (especially worms).
Fishing with live worm is what fishing is all about. The words worms and fishing are almost synonymous. Everyone knows that worms are great bait for fishing. At this point I would like to challenge your thinking. Worms generally come from the earth far from the waters edge. So my point is the earth worm is not in the natural food change of a fish and it is only introduced to the water by deliberate acts of man. So how did the earth worm become the natural bait for fishing? Leave your answers in the box below. I would like to hear from you.
* Eliminate Unnatural Odors - One of the easiest trout fishing tactics is to make sure you eliminate any unnatural odors from your hands. You see, scents transfer from your hands to whatever bait you're using, and if trout smell unnatural odors, they are 50% less apt to bite! The remedy to this problem is simple and easy. Simply grab a clump of grass or handful of dirt and rub it in your hands for 30-45 seconds before baiting up. This will eliminate any unnatural odors that may be on your hands.
* Be Efficient - When trout fishing it's important to be efficient. The more time you can spend with your line in the water the better. Remember, you can't catch any trout without your line being in the water. Using equipment like retractors to hold your most-used equipment is a great way to be more
efficient. This way you're not wasting time digging through your vest looking for your hemostats or nail clippers, etc. With a retractor, those items are hanging right there, waiting to be used. Another item that will make you a much more efficient angler is a bait bag. If you fish with live worms, you have to have a bait bag; it's as simple as that.
The bottom line is that these trout fishing tactics will help you get more hook-ups while trout fishing. How do I know this? Because I've been using every one of them for more than 15 years and they all make a huge difference. Use one or all of these trout fishing tactics to become a better trout angler today.
