TYPES OF FISHING METHODS
To simplify things, we have grouped fishing methods in to the following categories – if you know which method of fishing you are planning to use, please select it.
Spinning is a hands on, active fishing method. A lure or spinner is attached to the line which is then cast out and wound back in to make the lure imitate a swimming fish that your target species will hopefully want to eat!
Bottom fishing is where a weight is attached to the line and then bait is put on to the hook. The line is cast out and the hook drops to the bottom. Once you have cast out, it’s a waiting game until you see the rod move!
As with bottom fishing, a weight and baited hook are used. The difference is that a float is also positioned along the line so that you can place the hook in mid water rather than letting it go to the bottom enabling you to target different species.
