Fishing, there is no fish to bite the hook will be depressed, after a fish bite the hook, but because of the operation problem caused the fish to run away, it is even more depressing. When fishing, many fishermen will find that the float is moving, and they will always be one step late when lifting the rod. The fish has already run away and then go to lift the rod. Especially when the big fish is caught, the big fish’s strength is strong. After biting the hook, if we cannot catch the mouth of the fish in time and lift the rod to let the hook pierce the lips of the fish, it will be easy to run away.
Some of my fishing friends, and some of the anglers I have observed while fishing, often have these problems. When a fish bites the hook, they can't lift the rod in time, and they always slow down. That is, when the float has an obvious movement, it seems to me that lifting the rod is just right at this time, but some fishermen will take a slow shot and wait until the obvious movement of the float is over before lifting the rod.
When the rod is supposed to be lifted quickly, but a shot is slow, it will cause the fish to be unable to catch the mouth of the fish. It is important to know that the speed of fish sucking bait in the water is very fast. When watching some videos of fish sucking bait taken underwater, it feels like it is turned on at multiple speeds, and the bait is quickly sucked in and out by the fish. When the fish sucks the bait into the mouth, it takes a certain amount of time for the signal to be transmitted to the float. We found that the float is moving. If the rod is still lifted slowly, it will be too late. At this time, the fish has already spit out the bait or reached the mouth. After the rod is lifted, it is either an empty hook or the tip of the hook hangs to the edge of the fish’s lips, and the fish will break free as soon as it is exerted.
So how can this problem be avoided?
First of all, you need to practice more. Develop the habit of eye problems and quick hands, let the muscles form memory, when you see the float, you don't need to think about it, just lift the rod. If you are not proficient, you can see the fishing rod with your eyes and transmit the information to your brain. After your brain thinks, it will transmit the information that needs to be lifted to your arm muscles. It will be too late. This requires long-term practice to form muscle memory, and there is no other way except more practice.
Another one is to be familiar with all kinds of drifting phases. When the drifting just starts to move, but before the drifting phase is finished, it will judge the next drifting phase and raise the pole quickly. If your floating fishing is not a problem, when there are fish that will bite, especially when the big fish are about to bite, when they are swimming or testing the bait, the water current and water pressure changes caused will make the float have a slow Rise, fall, or have a slight swing. Of course, this kind of pre-drifting phase will only appear in pendant fishing, if it is traditional fishing or lead sinking, there will be no such reaction.
When we discover that the float has this pre-floating phase, our attention will be more concentrated, our eyes are fixed on the float, and the muscles of the arms are also tense. Raise the pole quickly.
Summarizing the above two methods, it can be seen that whether it is to form muscle memory or discover the pre-drift phase, we need to have rich fishing experience, which requires us to practice more, so as to ensure that the fish can catch the mouth in time when the fish bites the hook.
