Do you have any tips for fishing with nets?
Well, that does depend on the conditions that you are fishing in and your target fish. Fishing nets help you to retrieve your fish which reduces the amount of time the fish is in the water; this then helps to prevent the fish from throwing the hook and getting away. This is particularly important as part of the catch and release method, which is associated with more sustainable fishing and protecting our most vulnerable species. It is important always to use a good quality net that is fish friendly, and if you are releasing your fish, handle it with wet hands only and keep the fish in the water as long as possible.There are many different types of netting to choose from, including our selection of crab traps and yabbie drops. Always make sure before you begin fishing that your net or trap is in perfect shape and that all the mechanisms are working successfully.
How do I use a bait pump?
Bait pumps are a great way of obtaining fresh bait, and they are often used for the extraction of black lugworms which many types of fish love to snack on. It is better to pump at low tide, with bait often found at the lowest part of the shore on more exposed coasts. It is important that you are aware of the weather conditions in your area and that you have some knowledge of the tidal flow before you set out. Place the pump over the lugworm's faecal cast, and then suction is used to withdraw sand and the worm from the ground. Be careful, as it is possible to tear the bait in the process and remember that practice makes perfect. When you have finished collecting your bait, it is always important to clean out your bait pump thoroughly. It may also require some lubrication with oil to ensure that it keeps working for longer. Take the hard work out of digging bait, and shop our superb selection of bait pumps at Anaconda.
