Fishing Tips

Tip #26

Suspending stick baits can be made to dive a bit deeper and have a better hook up and landing rate by adding a size larger treble hook. Tying feathers onto the tail treble really help trigger reluctant strikes from following fish, and add a slight hint of
movement to the bait when it sits still on the pause, again helping triggering strikes out of reluctant followers.
