Whether you are fishing in saltwater or freshwater, the key to a successful trip is to have the right bait. At Angling Adventures, we aim to give you a fishing holiday that you will never forget. Apart from a range of pre-packaged tours, we make sure to meet and exceed your needs.
To help you fish, here are some information on the different types of baits and lures you can use for the trip:
For many anglers, natural baits are the ideal choice, as fish recognise the appearance and odour. Depending on the type of fish you want to catch, you may use insects, worms and shrimps. As natural bait moving from one place to another may disrupt the ecosystem, it is better to use local fish to attract your target.
Cut baits, which are pieces of fish, are effective baits for species attracted to scents. For saltwater fishing, these baits are perfect for catching bluefish and sea trout. When fishing in freshwater, use cut baits for ground feeders, including carp and catfish.
Artificial flies are fishing lures that resemble the food sources of different species — from terrestrial insects and crustaceans to small reptiles and birds. Artificial flies have different types, while dry flies are freshwater flies that float. In general, they look as if they are terrestrial or aquatic insects. Wet flies are also freshwater flies, but are designed to sink. They may look like insects, larva, baitfish or nymphs.
To fish in saltwater with an artificial fly, think about using streamer flies. These artificial flies are great for any kind of game fish. Some popular streamer flies are Muddler Minnow and a Royal Coachman. You can also use Mickey Finn, a classic pattern for a streamer fly. When you want a fly that you can use for almost any type of fish, think about buying Woolly bugger, a fly with a universal pattern.
