Fishing With Chicken Liver

Some people say gizzard, while others prefer the anatomical term, chicken liver. Whatever your speech preferences, it means a tough and slimy slab of meat, which must be cut for a fish’s dining pleasure. Really, raw gizard is tough enough that it must be carved with a very sharp knife. In spite of all the work, it is the best friend of any fishing reel. Catfish in particular love the bloody stench, particularly if it is warm, and even more so if allowed to mellow for at least a few hours.

For catfish, cut the liver into cubes about a cube inch, then attach them to the hook. Since the bait is unlikely to be moving, it it possible to use two hooks or more on the fishing reel. It is unlikely that the fisher will end with two fish, but then if one fish bites, others tend to follow like copy catfish.

In the case of any raw bait with a heavy weight, it is ideal to use a baitcasting reel. They are accurate and support a heavy line. Baitcasting reels also tend to have a very strong and stiff rod, for fighting big catfish and for driving the hook into the fish’s mouth.

Tis, the season for prespawn fishing, prespawn fishing starts when water temperatures are around fifty to sixty degrees.  So grab your Shimano or Daiwa and head to your favorite largemouth bass fishing hole.

Largemouth bass tend to be near rock piles, ledges and fallen trees that are close to shallow water.  Fish with bait that is dark colored and looks natural.  Worms, crawdads and dark color jigs are the winner.  Last but not least make sure to use at least a ten pound line so you don’t lose your prize.

Fishing With Jerkbaits

March 16, 2011 10:19 am
posted by Terry

There are many methods of fishing including the old drop and wait, trolling from a boat, casting and retrieving and fishing with a jerkbait. Several things must be taken into consideration when using jerkbaits with the most important being that the water should be fairly clear. When fishing for bass with a jerkbait, the bait must simulate the fish’s food preference and the action of the bait will trigger a bite reflex.

There are two types of jerkbait, hard and soft and the main difference between the two are the hooks. Hard jerkbaits have treble hooks and tend to lose fish in very heavy cover. The soft jerkbaits use a single worm hook, they are pliable and therefore tend not to hang up in weeds. A baitcaster reel is preferred and the rod action used, whether long or short, should be kept constant so the fish can time their strike.

How To Rig A Night Crawler For Bass Fishing

March 8, 2011 11:12 am
posted by Terry

Bass fishing can be a fun and relaxing way to pass a lazy afternoon with your Citrix Low Profile Baitcaster Reel. Why not try night crawlers for a change?

What You’ll Need:
1. Fishing Line
2. Fishing Hook
3. Sinker
4. Bait (night crawler)
5. And of course.. a fishing rod!

How to tie the rig:
1. Tie the sinker above the hook (distance depends on water depth and flow) before you tie the hook.
2. Now, use whatever strong knot you know to attach the hook at the end of the line.
3. It’s time for the night crawler!

Hook the night crawler about one inch from the head end and slide it all the way to the top of the hook. Next, put the hook through the body again about an inch further down. Let the rest of the worm body dangle so it creates some movement in the water. That’s it! You just made a night crawler rig for bass fishing.
