By now if you have been learning about surf fishing you should have learned how to determine what you want to be fishing for and what species are currently being taken in the surf. You should also have learned something about the bait preferences for certain species. The preferred bait isnt always your best choice. That being said, keep in mind what I wrote in the previous paragraphs before choosing your bait. Select one or two of the choices of bait to use at the surf line that meet the guidelines mentioned above and is popular with the species you will be fishing for. You wont be wasting your time with a choice of bait that isnt going to be effective that day.
Worms - Worms are a very effective bait for trout fishing, especially when drifted through the current of a small river or stream. Worms as trout bait used to mean exclusively live worms, but now also includes synthetic worms such as Berkley Power worms and Gulf Alive Night crawlers. These synthetic worm options are almost as effective as live worms for trout bait, and much less messy. A great way to rig worms as trout fishing bait is to use gang hooks. These hooks allow for a completely natural and extremely effective presentation of a worm for fishing. Small Spinners - Small spinners are very effective baits for trout fishing and are effective in lakes and rivers. The two most effective brand names (at least in my experience) are Blue Fox and Rooster Tail.
When it comes to trout fishing bait, whats an anglers best option? Is it live bait such as: worms, maggots, minnows, or crayfish? Or are synthetic baits such as: Power bait, Power Nuggets, and marshmallows a better bet? What about old stand bys like cheese and corn for trout fishing bait? When it comes to trout fishing bait, which is the best approach? Not to sound like a politician, but they all have their good points, which I will discuss in this article. There are some simple things that can be done no matter which type of bait you use, such as employing a set of gang hooks that will make all of your bait fishing that much more successful, and much more successful when using live worms as trout fishing bait.
Live Bait - Live baits are probably the most popular forms of fishing bait. From live minnows to live crayfish, live baits are also extremely effective fish catching tools. The most popular live bait on the planet is probably the live worm. In many areas of the country, live worms can even be found in convenience stores. No matter what live bait you use, the key is to rig the bait properly. This is where gang hooks come into play. Gang hooks are simply a pair of small hooks tied in tandem, which allow you to present bait in a natural manner (especially in the case of worms). After all, if you fish with a worm, you worm should look like a worm and not a "worm ball" right?
