Fish actually have a sixth sense that humans do not. The lateral line running down each side of a fish is filled with tiny hairs that can detect movement in the water. A fish can pick up a moving object, such as a fishing lure or bait, even in complete darkness. Just before it strikes, the fish will use sight to check out its victim. Even in clear water, fish can only see about 15 feet, but they can see colors and shapes. Finally, a fish will use its highly sensitive sense of taste to verify that what it has eaten is actually edible. To fool a fish, you must first fool all of its senses.
Live Saltwater Fishing Bait
When trying to trick a fish, nothing beats live fishing bait. Live bait may be hard to catch and hard to keep, but it's hard to beat when targeting finicky fish. Whether you catch live bait with a hook or a net, avoid touching the bait before putting it on the hook. The live well in which you store your bait should simulate current, oxygen content and temperature of the bait's natural environment. You can transport bait short distances in a bucket with a battery-operated aerator. When fishing with live bait, use the lightest hooks, leader and line possible to avoid further stressing the fish. Passing the hook through the bait fish's lips, eye sockets or nostrils will allow it to swim most naturally. Hooking the bait in front of the dorsal fin will encourage the bait to swim down. For delicate bait fish, tie a bridal out of rigging floss to hold the hook.
Hi my friends,
thank you all for your kind comments to my post a day ago. I had no time yesterday to post anything, it was a pretty busy day for me. But I'm back now and I hope you enjoy reading this one about salt water fishing. I'm not a fisher at all, I have just captured that guy at Cocoa Beach recently, while he was trying to catch some living baits. It took him long to get something out of the water - it's looks like that's something that people only with a big patience can do. I'm not one of them...*smile*...
Have all a wonderful day and Sunshine to you!
