Folk fishing tips, don’t miss it when you pass by

In today’s society, fishing as an entertainment activity has been slowly accepted and admired by the general public. Many new fishing people and veterans will always envy why others just protect the big carp and carp every day, but their own air force is not enough. Mingle. In fact, there are some tips that you haven’t digested yet. Next, the editor will introduce 7 tips for fishing, hoping to help all fishing friends


1. It’s important to choose a spot to catch a big fish

When wild fishing, the choice of spot to catch the big fish is an important factor in obtaining the catch. In the usual fishing process, the easiest fishing positions are the gentle slopes and the protruding parts of the shore. These places are good fishing positions.


2. Fishing inside, not outside

In general, crucian carp are relatively timid and cautious. When the winter is just over, they swim to the inland river to spend the winter, and the inland river also has food to eat. Therefore, in the first winter, you should not fish in big rivers. You should fish in river ditches and ponds of inland rivers.


3. Don’t forget the bait road when making a nest

Concentrate all the nest food here at the fishing point. The nest has not been completed yet. Sprinkle bait on the front of the main nest and on the left and right sides to connect the main nest in scattered shapes. It is generally called attracting fish into the nest. Oriented nest.


4. Techniques for hooking and knotting

Everyone knows that there are various ways to tie a hook. The experience summarized in the practice process is to tie the knot inside the hook handle. With this method, the fish lifts the rod when biting the hook. Because the angle between the hook tip and the strand is relatively small, the fish will be very It is easy to hit the hook. If the knot is tied to the outside of the hook handle, the angle between the hook tip and the strand will increase, and the fish may get out of the hook when the rod is lifted.


5. Ways to prevent small fish from making nests

At a place almost three meters away from the fishing spot, make a nest with fishy bait, and then lure all the small trash fish away. Be sure to focus on the taste and not the food. The other is to increase the weight of the lead sinker or use a bait with a larger specific gravity, so that the bait can sink quickly, and does not leave the small trash fish with the habit of grabbing food. Then there is the method of giving up this nest and getting a new one. You can also adjust the viscosity of the bait. Use pellets or wheat, corn kernels, and other baits to make the fish unable to eat. The wheat bait can be brewed by yourself. Take a pound of wheat and soak it in clear water for about seven hours, and then add it to the pot with clear water.

Boil for eight to mature, then take out the controlled dry water, add 100 grams of koji wine, an appropriate amount of small medicine, and honey, mix and stir well, then put it into a container and keep it for a week before use. You can use one part for nesting and one part for hook fishing. The lure effect is very good.


6. Skills for removing scales from big fish

Everyone knows that the scales of the fish are hard to get rid of. In fact, it is not difficult as long as the skill is emphasized. Wash the fish, wipe the water off the fish with a towel, and wipe the fish with vinegar. After a few minutes, hold the tail of the fish with both hands and push it harder, and the scales will come loose easily.


7. Don’t worry about hanging the hook

If the hook hangs on the bottom, don’t pull the fishing line in a hurry, otherwise, it will cause disconnection and loss of the hook. You can take a good rest, as long as there are fish in the nest, so can small fish, small fish. Basically, fish will grab food, and in many cases, the hook will fall off automatically. Sometimes even if there is no fish near the hook, wind and waves will hit the float, and the hook may fall off. 


Traditional or modern style?

Competitive anglers are not radical at all when it comes to answering the title question. This refers, of course, to baits and baits. You will see that there is no “boilies only” fishing.

Carp fishing has evolved a lot in recent years. Starting from the simple corn, we came to lures much more complicated to prepare, namely boilies.


The subject has followers in both camps, and the discussions are inexhaustible in order to establish the differences between the two baits. Personally, I believe that this “confrontation” should not be treated with “VS.” but rather with “&”. A carp fisherman must know both baits and use them when appropriate, without hesitation in using one of them. If the attractiveness of a boilies or the naturalness of the corn is preferred on a pond at some point, this does not become a rule. I have encountered many situations in which from one hour to the next the carps changed their tastes, going from a bait bed made with corn to a selective feeding, in isolated places, in small quantities and with quality baits, namely boilies. 

Each of the two baits has its advantages. For boilies there is superiority when fishing on muddy or vegetated substrate, because its decomposition is easily spotted by carp, when the fish are full and only curiosity arouses their appetite. Then we do an isolated fishing, which should not scare the fish, and a few balls thrown with the cobra are much more effective than a rocket loaded with corn splashing on the water. 

Perhaps the most important advantage for boilies is the selection of fish. From catching only large carp to removing catfish and crucian carp from the bait bed, boilies have an advantage. I see corn more efficiently in the situation of quantitatively sustained bait beds, when fish feed intensively, when we fish on a pond where boilies have not yet been known by carp, or when we want to take into account the tack. Corn is also good when carp prefer a small, insoluble bait. This is harder to do with boilies. 

I came to the conclusion that there is no universal bait and that the fisherman must learn to adapt to the requirements of the lake, taking into account the specific coordinates in which a game takes place at a given time.


It is well known that each lake has its own particularities in terms of structure, fish density and many other factors. Starting from this premise, if I were to participate in a contest organized on an overpopulated lake and if the interval in which the contest takes place coincides with a period in which the fish feeds intensely, then more than likely I would create a bed bait that also contains many small particles (in this case seeds) because it is almost impossible to control a cohort of carp swimming only with boilies.
