1、 Prepare bait types for each fish species
According to the relevant data of aquatic science, there are more than 400 kinds of cyprinidae of freshwater fish species only on land in China, of which carp, grass (green), crucian carp, silver carp (bighead carp) the four famous domestic fishes are widely distributed and quite common. Catfish, black fish, and turtle, second only to the latter. These types of fish have a sensitivity of over 500 times that of humans in terms of smell and taste organs. Therefore, when wandering for food, they naturally choose sour, sweet, fishy, and fragrant foods according to their preferences. Their preferences are generally: carp prefer slightly sweet foods; Grass (green) fish like the fragrance type; Silver carp (bighead carp) prefer sour type; Crucian carp like the strong aroma type; Turtle, catfish, and black fish prefer the fishy and pungent type. After mastering the different taste types of their greediness, anglers only need to make targeted purchases before fishing, especially for traditional powdery bait and backup. Firstly, they should follow their desired fish species and adhere to the combination of "fish and bait" and "bait and taste" to achieve better results when using them.
2、 Mastering taste and catering to their preferences
Carp: Eat vegetarian bait and eat less meat bait. The vegetarian baits mainly include semi ripe red Ru, potatoes, tender corn kernels, freshly dried wheat kernels, wine soaked wheat, tender corn cake or dried corn flour steamed with a little flour and cut into small pieces. Meat bait: In turbid waters during floods, carp can sometimes be caught with large red earthworms.
Grass (green) fish: It is a herbivorous and omnivorous fish that feeds on both meat and vegetables. Its edible species are basically the same as carp, but it also likes tender grass, melon vines, and bamboo leaves.
Silver carp (bighead carp): It only feeds on rootless algae such as duckweed or phytoplankton, as well as artificially fermented sour bait. Do not eat meat bait.
Turtle, catfish, and black fish: only feed on earthworms, small frogs, small live fish, small river shrimp, loaches, bee pupae, pigs, sheep, dog liver, and other animal organs. Do not eat vegetarian bait.
Crucian carp: It is also an omnivorous fish that eats both meat and vegetables. Meat bait: often eaten mainly by earthworms, but also by red worms, meat maggots, etc. Vegetarian bait: bait made from grains of rice, bean powder, flour, corn, and other grains.
3、 Adjust bait quality according to solar terms
Fishing in wild ponds, switching between meat and vegetable bait; The whole or half hanging of insect bait hooks; The softness, hardness, and particle size of noodle bait should be weighed and adjusted scientifically and reasonably. The adjustment period and method can be determined based on the following solar terms:
1. In spring, the awakening of insects, before the spring equinox and the beginning of winter, and after a light snowfall, due to the fact that fish eat less and move less, it is difficult to easily open their mouths and their feeding is particularly gentle. Especially for crucian carp, they are usually very gentle, and at this time, they appear even more cautious. So, when fishing with earthworms in meat bait, it is important to stick to being small, preferably with a matchstick that is large enough to fit the hook. If it is a noodle based vegetarian bait, its viscosity should be strong, but it should be soft rather than hard, and the hook should be pinched in small particles like mung beans.
2. During the spring equinox, after the grain rain, and before the cold dew and frost of late autumn, various freshwater fish are extremely active, wandering around for food (except at noon in midsummer), and feeding upright
