Do I need a special reel to retreive those Rapala fake minnows? Or should I use a different one than I use to hook live bait on. Like if I just throw my rod in, and let it sit, I have a rod for that. Do I need a different rod to retrieve fake baits at certain rates? I am really confused on this and need help please. Thanks… And what is good brand?
You don’t need a special reel.You can use a spinning or bat casting reel.The more important aspect is the rod.You’ll want a medium to medium heavy action on the rod.That gives you much more control of the dynamics of the movement.Remember fish are opportunistic feeders.If you can mimic an injured or dying(not dead) fish then even a fish that isn’t hungry will feed.
If your using crank baits then you’ll want a bait casting reel with a very high turning ratio.Fact is you really need a few set ups.One for finesse fishing and one for cranking.
I use Ugly Sticks for rods because they’re strong and relatively cheap.They’re carbon graphite and much stronger than fiberglass.
Last thing I’ll leave you with is,best times to fish are right before it rains not during.Low pressure turns fish on making them feed much more actively.

is being close to the shore not good for fishing using lures instead of bait? do I need a boat to be effective with lure fishing to reach deeper waters?
Your question is quite general — we don’t know where you’re fishing or what you’re fishing for, or even if you’re fishing in the sea or freshwater, but if someone told you that you can’t fish lures from the shore, they’re crazy.You can fish lures anywhere you fish bait, and vice versa. You can also fish lures WITH bait, like a bit of worm on a jig.
Lures don’t necessarily need to reach deep waters. Lures just need to reach the fish! If a lure looks and acts like something a fish would eat, the fish will consider taking it. If you’ve had luck fishing with bait in a certain area, try a lure in the same place and see if you have any success. For example, let’s say you’ve caught fish on live minnows or shad chunks off your favorite point of land — try a lure that looks and acts like a live minnow in that same area. The fish are only interested in food, and if you can fool the fish into thinking your bait is food, chances are you can fool the same fish into thinking your lure is food.
Your main challenge will be selecting lures that imitate natural forage. You won’t have much luck with a purple squid lure if there are no purple squids in that water. Look in the water and see if you can tell what the fish might be eating — crawdads? baitfish? insect larvae? grass shrimp? You may have to get wet, turn over some rocks, etc., but it’s worth it. And, as I’ve often said — ASK THE LOCALS. If you see some other folks fishing, ask them about what the fish feed on in that area. Ask them what lures (if any) they use. Most anglers are happy to trade information, especially if you’re respectful and observe proper fishing etiquette.
I mostly fly fish, so I don’t do much with bait nowadays, and I can tell you that catching fish on an artificial lure is somewhat more gratifying than baitfishing. I know baitfishing has its place, and I would never criticize anyone for using bait. However, when everything else is equal, fishing with a lure will require a more informed presentation, and this makes me feel like I’ve done a little more to "earn" my catch.

Find someone who’s cast netting and offer them a few bucks for some mullet if they’re after bait-size… that way you’re sure to "match the hatch" as they say. Other than that, I can’t help much, don’t fish melbourne too often.
i use cut baits like butterfish, sand brim, crappie , freshwater brim, and mackerel but have had people tell me I have not been using the right stuff. SO i tried livers hearts, shrimp, dough, nothing seems to work especially during the dec. thru feb. months. Does the temp play a part.
Whoever told you not use those baits are IDIOTS. The best baits for big channel cats and blue cats are cut baits, whether that be cut bluegill, shad, or mackerel. Use a size 2/0 – 4/0 circle or kahle hook with your bait. Chicken liver, chicken hearts, dough-baits, etc. work fine for 10lb and smaller catfish but if you’re targeting larger cats cut bait is the best choice.
Look for the deepest holes at your lake or river. Log jams nearby would help also.
To be a better bait fishing angler it is very important to understand what the ideal temperature for gamefish such as flathead catfish, channel catfish, bluegill, largemouth bass, striped bass, crappie, northern pike, smallmouth bass, walleye, yellow perc

I’am going fishing tomorrow around 3am and last time I went fishing I bought squid, shrimp and nightcrawlers from the tackle shop and we didnt catch chit and we were fishing for like 15 hours straight, if I use like raw chicken or meat, fish from the store would that work?, any tips on making your own bait at home that works would be appreciated
In my own experience in both Western New York and Southeastern Wisconsin, lake and river fish are far more likely to take subsurface flies (nymphs and streamers) than baited hooks, but since you’re asking about bait I assume "dump the bait and go fly-fishing" won’t exactly help you.
Unless you’re fishing in the ocean, this time of year (mid-winter) there are only two categories to consider in the US; icefishing and warm water fishing.
For Ice fishing; fish under ice are sluggish and lazy, bait needs to be lively and/or smelly to entice a strike. Try minnows wounded (but not mortally) on the hook, the more they move and struggle the more likely you’ll be successful. For the smelly option, get a small amount of soft and stinky cheese (2 oz. limburger, etc) and mash it up with some raw pork sausage. leave it on the counter overnight (if you dare) and use it sparingly. Enough for a large meatball is enough for fifteen hours of fishing.
For water fishing:
The above will still work but if the water is warmer fish will be more likely to move around, and so will you. Use a bobber and vary the length of line until you find the fish in the water column. If you still don’t get a strike after an hour, move to another spot. The best baits for water fishing are local food items for the fish. If you see a lot of grasshoppers or crickets in your favorite fishing spot, buy some crickets at a pet store (they’re cheap food for pet reptiles and amphibians). If you’re spot has a decent crawfish population, they work well too and may also be available on the cheap at a pet store. If you absolutely must buy bait at a grocery store or bait shop, the best bets are going to be minnows or stinky pork/cheese balls.
ok what would you use for fishing under a bridge in the sea??
little green uncooked prawns or squid ??
and also isthat water fine to eat the fish afer?? its open sea watr under a large bridge
the bridge is in sydney australia and i dont no what fish live there i think bream, flathead
i dont think that youll be catching bream or flathead catfish in the sea. those are freshwater fish. There is a type of saltwater catfish we call sail catfish that live in the gulf. I would use shrimp, squid, bloodworms, and small minnows. Im sure any of the fish you catch would be safe to eat. If the meat cooks white, it should be good.
I am talking about using garden snails for fish bait what kind of fish will eat them?
sorry, ops,community spank me
fish eat what will wash into the water when it rains and usually its only bugs and worms and somtimes mice. snails and slugs dont wash in so fish wont eat them because they dont know what they are i recomend worms they work the best for most fish.

Rub catfish stink bait on your minnows for crappie. It works.
it would help if you thought about giving us where you live at least …… but the best bait for both fresh and salt water and I have used it everywhere from Ohio and Minnesota to Alaska and Baja. It has caught pike, silver salmon, halibut, white sea bass, largemouth bass, lincod, small mouth bass, calico bass, sand bass and spotties and I take it everywhere I go. It is the bomber long A in the orange belly, black back color (the bait is clear with a mylar mirror running exactly down the middle from it’s nose to its tail) and it has rattles (bee bees in it) like all good crank baits should. The best is the 4 1/2 inch deep diving and here is the link for B P S
im goin fishin and i always put squid as a bait for shore fish. but i heard cuttle fish is better is this true?
you dont say where you’re from black, but here in the US, squid is cheaper than cuttlefish. neither have no regulations against using, but they are basically the same
