TIPS FOR A SNAG PROOF FISHING TRIP!
Want dozens of thrilling strikes…want to catch lunker bass and pike all season long? It’s easy! Just look for the weedbeds, moss or lily pads on any lake or stream.
Just remember this fact:
The greatest number of bass, pike and trout in any lake or stream will hang out around the weedbeds, lily pads, moss, rocks, logs or stump-filled, brushy areas.
Fish prefer these snaggy places because minnows, crawfish, frogs, leeches, insects and small animals are found there and the cover protects them from their natural enemies. Here also is where fish will take a lure most readily. Look for these snag infested “feeding” grounds and you’ve found choice spots to fish for Bass, Walleye, Northerns, and Trout.
Snag Proof lures allow you to get into these snaggy places with explosive results! Follow these tips for best results:
Fish the lures slowly… in most cases, the slower you fish them the better.
Twitch your rod tip frequently, even with lures such as the minnow with built-in action. This breaks up the retrieve and makes the lure behave erratically, often enticing fish strike.
Pause frequently on the retrieve. Let lure settledown, then begin retrieve again. This imitates a live animal cautiously moving through the water. Fish will often hit just at the moment you stop or start the retrieve.
If the fish misses the lure, cast right back to the spot where he struck, he’ll hit again. Same methods work along brushy shorelines and stump-filled inlets. Try it!
