Guest More than 1 year ago I have been a lake and river fisherman my entire life, so most of my knowledge and skill is there.
Still, I was able to pick up some great techniques and tips from this book, especially on picking out the right flies to use. But where the book really helped me was just a few days ago with my first time ever ocean fishing, for mackerel. When you open the bail to cast, the line will pool out to its original shape. Always spool a bit less than full. It is strong enough to land a Largemouth Bass that may happen to take advantage of your Panfishing presentation, but slender enough to target Panfish. Once you get into higher tests or different line types, a secure fishing knot is more challenging.
There are some other great line types such as Braid and Flourocarbon. These will be better suited for mastery later in your journey. For your first reel, 6 Lb. You need hooks, sinkers, and some snap bobbers. Nothing too fancy, just the right collection of bait holder hooks, split shot sinkers and some small snap bobbers. For the first few trips this basic rig will land you some Panfish:.
Double knotting the hook will work fine for the Panfish. Our Basic Fishing Tackle Kit is a good option for getting these basics and setting yourself up for the other live bait techniques. I highly recommend using a small piece of Nightcrawler, or half of a smaller worm type, for landing fish on your first outing. You can also dig them up in the garden. Look for moist areas under rocks or leaves.
If you are not comfortable using worms on this first trip, some typical grocery store items can work as replacements. Baiting your hook with kernels of corn, a thin slice of hotdog, or a small balled up piece of bread can work as replacements.
However, these are not as effective as worms. Pierce one end of the worm and thread it to the barbs on the shank of your 4 Baitholder hook. Pierce the worm piece once more on the other end, securing it to your barb, but covering the point of the hook. Panfish hold closely to the dock and scavenge for anything edible that falls nearby. Simply open your bail and let your rig fall to the water right next to the dock. Try to fish in ft. Sight fishing is challenging to explain but you will have a natural ability to land fish if they are visible next to the dock.
If a dock or deeper water is not accessible on your first trip, you will need to learn how to cast. Open the bail with your opposite hand while pinching the line between your index finger and the rod handle with the hand gripping the rod. Slowly, direct your rod to the side of your body at a 45 degree. The bait is now out in the water, and all your hard work should start to pay off. If you are using the basic bobber rig, you should see your bobber halfway submerged, with the top half above the water and the bottom half underwater.
Make sure your baited hook is at least 1 foot off of the bottom. If your bobber is submerged without a bite, you have added to much weight with your sinker or the bobber is too small.

Try to position your bait near the dock, fallen timber, weedline or a swimming platform. If Cover is not available, just do your best to set the rig ft. You will notice that you are getting a bite when your bobber moves up and down, or drives to one side or the other. Let the fish take the bait.
Give the bite a second count if your bobber is not completely submerged. Small Panfish do not have the strength to completely submerge your bobber. Their mouths are very small, and they suck in and push out food with their gills. You likely have a fish hooked if the bobber moves erratically for over 5 seconds. If you do not give it 5 seconds, you run the risk of pulling the bait out of the fishes mouth while it exhales. The feeling for when to set the hook will develop over time.
