How do you soften power bait?

It depends on what type of bait style you are using. The plastic type, commonly found in the shape of baitfish or claims, can be rehydrated by adding water to the packaging it originally came in. If the package is not watertight, put the bait into a small ziplock bag.

Similarly, for the dough-type baits, addd a small amount of water to the container and let it sit for a day or two to rehydrate. Make sure the lid is securely screwed down so the product does not dry out again.

How do Japanese people catch fish?

With rice nets they come off when dipped in water many times

The Japanese fish like we do. They use long lines and nets commercially, and rod and reels for freshwater fishing or surf fishing. Largemouth bass from the United States have been introduced there, and have thrived to the point where fishing for them has become very popular. Japan has several companies making great tackle like Shimano and Daiwa products, and Oziri and Yamamoto make fantastic bass baits.

Thunderstorms and Lightning

Is it safe to go fishing during a storm?

No! That is VERY RISKY! See, if it's a lightning storm, lightning might come down and hit your rod as you cast it out. Also if you're fly fishing and stand in the water lightning might hit it and the electricity will go to your body. Another reason is that the storm might turn into a tornado! I'm sure you know how bad that is. And, if you still don't believe me, just last week in a terrible lightning storm a guy was walking home from fishing because it was raining. Later on it turned into a massive lightning storm. He ducked under a tree (bad idea) and the tree got hit by lightning which hit him too. At that very moment he died! I read that in the death section in my local newspaper. So once again don't fish during a storm EVER!

What is the best rod for pike fishing?

If you are using live or deadbaits and you want to catch an average sized pike go for a rod with test curve of around 2.5 - 3lb (it will probably say this information on the rod). I usually use a carp rod for this job as it is the same a pike rod only it says "carp rod" on it instead. Also, they are easier to hold of for me. If your are lure fishing with small-medium lures then yet yourself a specified spinning rod with a spinning reel, and for jerk baits use a jerkiest or heavy lure rod and use with a 4000 sized fixed-spool reel or a multiplier.


What is the value of a JC Higgins casting reel?

Go to your local library or b&n bookstore. In the section with collectable price guides, you should find at least 3 volumes of a thick hardback book on the value of antique fishing tackle and lures.

Bass (fish)

What do you use to catch bass in a lake?

A fishing rod is used with baits. There are several kinds bass baits used in bass fishing, and the bait you choose will depend on the time of year you're fishing, where in the water you want to fish, what the fish are currently eating, weather and time of year. You'll need to know the local law. Not all baits are allowed in all areas or at all times of year.

Live bait commonly consists of small fish, crayfish, frogs, leeches, polliwogs, salamanders and earthworms.

Hard baits are solid and made from artificial material. Top water baits skim the surface of the water. Diving baits are broken down into categories such as shallow, medium and deep diving based on the depth they dive while being reeled in. There are crank, rip, spoons, blades, jigs and many more.

Soft baits mimic the soft bodies of live bait. They are broken into categories such as tube, jerk, goby and grub. These baits are generally used to fish the bottom of a lake.

Soft plastics work very well in warm water. Some of the best are plastic worms, lizards, and crayfish imitators.

What are the best fishing lures to use for largemouth bass?

It all depends on the time of year of course and what the fish are feeding on. The best year round lure would be a black and blue 3/8 ounce jig with a black, or blue trailer. But that is for Nebraska fishing where the water is always dirty. Can't go wrong with a Texas rigged plastic worm or lizard. My other go to lure is a YUM brand Junebug (color) dinger rigged just whacky style which is just a 3/0 hook with the worm hooked one time right in the middle where it flops over both sides. Don't know why but it drives bass nuts usually on the initial fall.

I found one better than anything. Zoom Ultravibe Speedcraw, in green pumpkin color.

Texas rigged or Carolina rigged.

What is out shore fishing?

Fish: Most of the fish baits seem to be an instant crab attractor and they don't last that long if used in small slivers. Cutlets of small mackerel are better than slivers when crabs are busy and if using a large bait mount the skin side out. Boat anglers use a section of fresh silver eel for tope to keep crabs and dogfish off and it is very effective.
