Pretty simple question for fishermen/women out there, what’s been getting the most trout lately? Don’t get me wrong, I know this question will probably get me absolutely nowhere in my future days of fishing this year, but I just want some insight.
I was out fishing for almost eight hours today at a local lake. Pulled in a total of sixteen fish. Twelve that were trout, but only kept five of ‘em. I used nightcrawlers and sometimes green colored Powerbait (Powerbait might be PA only…I don’t know).
Any tips would be great, I just don’t want another day like today.
Power worms , Pink Power fish eggs , cheese , small marshmellows , and even some very small spinners ( inline only ) Best to go to an area as they are stocking the trout heere in Texas due to heat .
Fishing from the surf, north shore, Queens, NY
it is called a…………………uh…………..i think its called a swimbait. the large ones are the best if you wanna catch big stripers.but you will need a lure with a big hook.
i just wanna know what the best bait to use for fishing in cold below freezing water? for catfish and bluegill
if the water temp, is below freezing, i would think that the fish, would be frozen in the ice
fish trout only now bought a boat want to fish for walleyes only try to get addicted to walleye fishing like trout fishing. take it easy on me this is all new to me don"t care what bait live dead crank spinner what ever it takes thank you
#2 Gold mepps with a worm , wrap the worm around the 3 prong hook with some of it dangling behind, trolling is best the spinner really attracts them
what is the best bait to use bass fishing off the shore?
Well there are alot of variables to your question…. water temperature, clarity, depth, stream or pond/lake….. but here are my top three….
Grape soft plastic worm… usually a curl tail… and rigging depends on those above variables.
Buzz baits and spinner baits…. with a slow retrieve…. and a nice trailer never hurt anything..
And top water poppers and hard baits…. poppers for the noise and spooks and torpedos for good action
I was wondering what you people consider to be the best live bait for saltwater fishing (in SC, US, in my case). I’ve been using shrimp which I suppose is pretty standard, but I was wondering what some of you have found to be the most efficient. Thank you very much.
Depends on what you are after, live shrimp is ok for most inshore fish, but the problem with them is non-target fish will steal a good bit of them and if you are buying the shrimp it can be an expensive proposition. I like small pinfish, small pig fish, small croakers and finger mullet for most inshore fishing I use whichever I can catch at the time (these seem to stay alive and most active on the hook the longest however greenies and any other small fish will do) for trout, tarpon, redfish, blue fish and strippers (live eels are the best for strippers though). I also use small crabs when I can catch them for redfish. If you are fishing the surf and pompano are there, you just can’t beat live sand fleas. For flounder I like live pollywogs (local name) they are a bull minnow that you catch in the marshes and you fish them like you are fishing a carolina rigged plastic worm. For sheephead the best bait is fiddler crabs fish right next to any pillings. If you are fishing a pier and there are king mackerel around catch you some hard tails (blue runners) and rig them with a small wire trace. Esentually, the fish you are targeting determines the bait you use.
I am thinking between four things. Harpoon for tuna and swordfish, fly fishing for salmon and trout, bait fishing for pike, and lobster pot for lobsters. I am f2p, and I’m wondering what the fastest method is. I don’t care about money, I just want to know what the fastest from 68 to 99.
Should i drop my tuna to get more experience in one trip? Or keep them and bank all of it?
"I’m wondering what the fastest method is" – it’s fly fishing, hands down. Don’t waste your time getting lobsters or tuna, unless you plan on dropping them ALL – the bank trip is too long to make these methods effective.
For both P2P and F2P the fastest method is fly fishing. Get your rod and feathers and head to barb ville. You have two choices; you can drop the fish or bank them. Personally I would tell you to bank them, you won’t lose much XP by doing this (it doesn’t take very long) and you’ll be able to make some money from it – I know you said you aren’t bothered about making money, but it’s always nice.
I’m going fishing today for the first time since about five years ago, i just bought a brand new fishing rod (*it has a reel and all*) Do you know how to line the reel’s line to the pole? Because im lost when it comes to that
I’m fishing for bass i have no bait just household food would bread work?
how about stale white bread or wheat bread hah:)
Use lures or live fish, minnows, shad, shiners, bluegill.
Fishing tomorrow in salt water. What’s a good bait to use? Or any other tips? Thanks
spanish mackrel like finger mullet and mackrel jigs. mackrel jig is a lot of jigs on 1 line and you pull them up and down and you can catch a couple at a time
I have a regular fishing rod, not a fly rod, and am looking to use "LIVE BAIT".
Try using a minnow or even what they call Chubbs..Which is another type of minnow but you can catch them in the stream!!!Good Luck!!!
Line Breaker Monster Trout Attack Bait go arobatic. Great 2 day trip with a overnight camping at Lake Amador near Jackson California. We were fishing for large Donaldson trout using new Berkley Gulp bait in a chartreuse glitter with Shelton Self Releasing hooks and Shelton’s Tadpole™ snagless weights. We were fishing from a 15 foot aluminum boat. The Gulp looks similar to Powerbait. It is a little softer than Powerbait and you can put on more and still have the hook easily come out of the bait and stick the fish. We pulled the boat up on shore but fished out the back of the boat.

Since you aren’t breaking off hooks in fish and with the TadPole snagless weights, not breaking off in rocks, you get in more fishing time because you are not down re-rigging so that gives you more time with your bait in the water and you improve your catch. This is especially important when you have kids, as you will not spend all of your time re-rigging them. It is especially a good feeling seeing them swim away. Berkley Power Bait and these hooks and TadPole make one of the most effective trout bait rig there is. Catch and keep, no problem, you get the hook out instantly, and catch and release couldn’t be easier. Regarding self-releasing hooks. They are design to release fish without touching them. Basically how they work is the eye of the hook is at the bend of the hook and the leader line goes through a flexible plastic sleeve that goes over leader line and when the sleeve is slid down over the shank of the hook it is set and fish just like a regular fishhook. The sleeve has a second line tied to the top of this and parallels the main leader line and is attach by a sliding 3 turn uniknot tied with thread. When you slid the red knot up by pinching it or using a pocket comb it slides the sleeve up and the hook rotates and self releases.

What kind of baits, mixtures, power baits, and so on, do you use to catch trout, and how successful are you?
A size 0 Mepps spinner in silver or a 1/32 oz chartreuse grub have always been my fav.
Some guys use very small minnows with excellent results, but I think live bait is for cheaters.
Its going to be in a decent size lake but only on the dock i will be fishing i heard worms with a spinner on it will work but what else. i also but bass attractant should i use that at night or does that not matter??
depends on the size of bass in the decent sized lake. but black baits are best at night. crankbaits top water pencil poppers and small zara spooks are my favorites on top. I like the real craws on the bottom at night and always the red shad worm. but I went with a few cousins twenty years ago and I was out fished by a second cousin (10 years old ) one night and she was using fly lined inflated nightcrawlers on brown ande line using a spincast rod and reel. It was a pond and the bass were loving the nightcrawlers on the top that night.
I’m going fishing with a friend on a dock this weekend. What is some good bait around the house that I can use? I rarely go fishing and she wanted to go so I was like okay yea lets do it this weekend. Like I said, I don’t go fishing very often so I’m not about to go to the store and buy loads of good bait so what are some good ones I can find around the house?
Your best bet is worms. Look around the damp spots in your area, especially under a pile of leaves, pieces of wood or even any cardboard that have lain on the ground for a while. Collect a few worms and you will be in business.
Probably the "best" bait for Crappie/Bluegill would be either Earthworms, Crickets, Crappie Minnows, Meal worms.
If your going for Bluegills-Earthworms/Mealworms.
Crappie- Crappie Minnows/ 1/16 OZ tube jig.
What are the best things (baits/lures) to use when fishing for trout in a small pond. The trout of of different varities
I concure with Jim above. Also try small spinners like the Mepps line or, my favorite, the Colorodo Spinner. I’ve had good luck with them.
When the fish are spawning try a spinner-bait fished on the bottom.
The bass will be protecting their eggs and fry and if something comes close they will bite.
I live in Malden and I am looking to get some earthworms for fishing (freshwater). Does anybody know where I could get some? I haven’t been able to find anything. Malden would be the best, but Medford, Melrose, Saugus, Everett, etc. all work too. Thanks!
I’m not sure of one in that area but i know there is a live bait shop in Quincy right on the rotary before you get onto the Fore River bridge.
