Want to attract fish to your hook? Here’s the sure fire way to lure them with a free fish food buffet!
Fishing is similar to hunting in many ways, right? Hunters dump a bushel of apples or corn in the woods to attract deer to their hunting spot. Eventually the deer find the bait and will go there every day to feed expecting a free meal. Little do they know that on opening day they will succumb to the hunter’s arrows in an epic ambush at the bait pile.
There’s no big difference, for Bluegills, Bass, Catfish, Pike, Carp….fish are always on the prowl for a free meal, and can be baited to a hook too. Anyone that’s ever thrown a hand-full of breadcrumbs from their dock knows this secret to attracting fish. Chumming or baiting for fish was done hundreds of years ago. Hundreds of years ago they didn’t have the sophisticated equipment we have today, but their method was effective for attracting fish. The thinking was if you could catch a fish with a worm or bug on a hook couldn’t you attract a bunch of fish if you threw a bunch of worms or bugs in the water? Of course! The early fishermen would take the rotting corpse of an animal and hang it from a tree limb overhanging the edge of the water. In a short time the flys lay eggs on it, the fly eggs, (maggots) fall off the rotting animal and the fish come to find the source of this free food. Although that would work today there are easier ways and specialized equipment to create a very productive fishing spot.
Hundreds of years ago they didn’t have the sophisticated equipment we have today, but their methods were effective for attracting schools of fish.
Whether freshwater fishing or saltwater fishing there are easy recipes to start chumming. If you’re fortunate enough to have a fishing spot and want to attract big fish to the spot then you are a good candidate to try a bait boat.
