Different fish like different bait conditions
The same bait has different fishing effects for different people, largely because of the difference in the state of the bait. We need to practice more about the state of the bait. Different ratios of bait to water, different frequency and intensity of kneading will affect the state of bait.
But before we start making bait, we should first know what kind of bait condition the target fish we are about to catch prefers. The bait is for the fish to eat. Only the fish likes it to catch the fish. It is difficult to catch the fish if the bait is in the wrong state. So what kind of fish conditions are suitable for different bait conditions? Let's take the dry loose, wet loose, and soft bait as examples to talk about the conditions under which these three bait states are suitable for use.
For dry bait, the bait is prepared with less water. Generally, the bait-water ratio is about 1:0.3. The bait is very scattered, and it will disperse quickly when it is sprayed into the water, and the hook holding ability is very poor. The bait in this state is generally not used as a bait, but only suitable as a bait for nesting and attracting fish. This kind of bait is suitable for preparing a nest in the early stage of fishing or wild fishing, and the bait in this state can be selected when using a nesting device to nest. After the dry bait enters the water, it will quickly disperse as it falls. Most of the bait is granular, and the fish attracting effect is very good. In addition, in the black pit, if there is a new fish just put in the black pit, it will eat the bait very fiercely. When fishing fast fish, you can use this fast-spreading dry bait to gather the fish quickly.
Wet bait, compared with dry bait, it just adds a little more water, generally the bait-water ratio is about 1:0.5. If the dry bait is completely dispersed when it is thrown into the water or sinking in the middle of the water, then the wet bait will disperse more slowly, and it will usually disperse completely after reaching the bottom of the water. This kind of wet loose bait scatters slowly, and more particles sink to the bottom, which can keep the fish after they enter the nest. If we are fishing for black pits, we can also use this kind of bait in a wet and loose state when we are fishing mid-range.
Soft and sticky bait, the bait in this state is the most water-added, generally the bait-water ratio reaches 1:1 or 1.2. In this state, the atomization of the bait is relatively poor, and the bait mass is relatively soft and light. For wild fishing, if the fish does not have a high appetite and eats lightly, for example, in winter or when the fish activity is not high, you can use bait in this state, which is easier to inhale into the mouth. When fishing for black pits, when the second half of the process, the remaining fish in the black pits are more vigilant, at this time we can use this kind of soft bait. This can improve the palatability of the fish.
Here I just briefly talked about the three commonly used bait conditions suitable for fish conditions, such as dry bait, wet bait, and soft bait. Others include hard bait and wet bait. Generally speaking, the more water is added to the bait, the softer, more viscous, and the better the entrance; the less water is added, the harder, the worse the entrance, and the better the atomization. The baits are dry, loose, wet, soft, and sticky, and the corresponding atomization and hooking properties are different, which is suitable for different fish conditions. If we want to use them accurately and skillfully, we need to practice more.
