Catch Fish With A Hook

Fishing with A Rod

There are several methods for fishing with a hook, the difference between which lies in the type of bait used, the length of the hook, the type of reel, and the thickness of the lines. Among these methods is fishing with an artificial fishing fly in which an artificial bait made of hair or feathers is used that is similar in shape to the type of live food that the fish prefers. Along with drop fishing, fishing using reels, and drag fishing in which the rod is pulled by a fishing boat, the bait fishing method remains the oldest and most widespread method in the world, in which the bait is fixed on the hook and when the fish swallows the bait it begins to tighten the line. As an attempt to get rid of the hook, when the fisherman feels the tension, he begins to raise the tip of the hook to the top.

How To Catch Fish With a Hook

Areas where fast water currents meet slower ones are the best places for fishing. This is because the fish go to these areas to catch the food flowing with the current. It is also possible to choose places where there are many tree trunks and rocks because they provide a cover for the fish to hide under when it senses danger. The dawn and dusk periods are also considered among the most suitable times for fishing, as the fish come out during them to get food. It is worth noting that the fisherman must know the characteristics of the type of fish he wants to catch, and thus he can know the times when it is active and the places in which it prefers to be. It is recommended to follow the following steps for a successful fishing experience using the rod: 

Choosing a suitable fishing rod: It is recommended to choose a fishing rod with an appropriate weight and a rod length approximately similar to the fisherman’s height. It is preferable to choose a medium-strength flexible rod for beginners, and to choose a solid rod when you want to catch large fish so that it can bear its weight. It is also preferable to choose a rod with a rotating reel to facilitate the fishing process.

Choosing the appropriate thread: The appropriate thread must be chosen for the hook used, provided that the thread must withstand between 2.7 to 5.4 kg for fishing in fresh water, and between 4.5 to 5.4 kg for fishing in salt water.

Choosing the appropriate hook: The size of the hook must be appropriate for the type of fish to be caught. It is known that fish that are attracted to small-sized bait will feel afraid to approach a large hook. It is preferable to choose a hook measuring between 6-10 to catch different types of fish.

Choosing the appropriate bait: When wanting to catch a specific type of fish, the fisherman must know the type of food he prefers to use as bait. In general, it is recommended to use worms, minnows, leeches, crayfish, crickets, and grasshoppers as bait for catching freshwater fish, while it is preferable to use worms. Sea, eel, crab, shrimp, and squid fillets as bait for saltwater fishing.

Attaching the hook to the thread: The basic knot is considered the best way to attach the hook to the thread. This is done by passing the end of the thread through the hook loop and pulling it towards the pulley and wrapping it around itself four to six times, then passing the thread through the formed knot and tightening it tightly.

Fixing the sinker and sinker: The sinker is fixed on the string in addition to one or two sinkers at a distance of 15-30 cm from the hook. The sinker is used to enable the hook to remain under the water, while the movement of the sinker up and down is a signal to the fisherman that the fish has begun to bite the bait.

Attaching the bait to the hook: by piercing the bait with the hook, bending it, and passing it more than once.

Throwing the line into the water: This is done by pulling the hand back so that the hook becomes vertical, then moving it forward and releasing the thread until the hook reaches the desired place. Note that using a reel equipped with an operating button facilitates this task, as pressing the button leads to releasing the thread. Some people prefer Fishermen release the line slowly and move the hook slightly so that the fish think that the bait is alive.

Waiting or changing the fishing location: After doing all of the above, the fisherman must wait quietly until a fish swallows the bait, and this can be known from the movement of the line forward. It is recommended to change the location after 15 minutes have passed without catching any fish and search for another location.

Pulling the fish: The fish is pulled by raising the hook up at a 45 degree angle and winding the line on the reel at the same time to keep the line taut. Which reduces the chance of the fish to free its mouth from the hook. To reduce the tension of the hook, it can be lowered slightly while continuing to wrap the line, then raised again to bring the fish closer to the fisherman, and this is repeated until the fish is pulled to the shore, then a net can be used to catch it. Finally, Remove the hook from the fish's mouth.

Hitting a fish: A fish that has been caught for eating must be hit directly on the head with a sharp object, provided that the blow is above the eyes to affect the brain and cause the fish to lose consciousness. This is to reduce the pain you suffer.

A fishing rod is a fishing tool that consists of a stick or rod, usually made of fiberglass, carbon fiber, or bamboo. It is connected to a long line that ends with a hook on which the bait is placed. It is equipped with a reel to wind the line on, and it has a handle of cork or cork. From ethylene vinyl acetate polymers, the place where the reel rotates is made of graphite-reinforced plastic, aluminum, or wood, and the control rings are made of steel or titanium.
