How to Behave When Fish Hits Fishing Rod? 2023

How to Behave When Fish Hits Fishing Rod? This question is actually a question asked by our friend Üzeyir on his youtube channel. Since it is necessary to elaborate a little to explain the subject, I would like to share it here.

First of all, I would like to point out that the things I am going to write are not things that require much attention and should definitely not be done like this, but as our friends who want to have knowledge gain experience, they can be considered as a kind of ” classic knowledge ” as their bodily behaviors will adapt over time.

How to Behave When Fish Hits Fishing Rod

Important: The information below is directly related to the gap of the line during fishing, the way you use the bait, whether it is fake or organic bait, the compatibility of your rod and reel with the hunt, and your experience.

How you behave when the fish hits the hook for the first time is related to the place where you are fishing, the fish you want to catch, and your fishing technique. Let’s explain it item by item:

I am fishing with a bait fishing line or fake in water with a flow rate but not very deep, and the jaw structure of the fish I catch is hard (Trout, Chabot, Catfish, Crane).

Your fishing line is already reaching downstream and the bait is probably in midwater. Strike the bait hard so that your fishing line is parallel to the water and do not lift your fishing line until the fish is tired. Keeping your fishing line upright in the air may cause the fish that is already close to the surface to get rid of the fishing line by splashing or cause your fishing line to compass.

When the fish gets close, raise your fishing rod to be in control.

I am fishing with a bait line in almost stagnant and deep water (more than 1 meter, sea, lake, or stream) and the jaw structure of the fish I catch is not very hard ( Carp, Mullet, Red Wing, Burr, Tea Fish )?

Without raising your fishing line too high, play the bait up and sideways, against the direction of the fish, at a speed that will put the hook in the mouth of the fish. 

If you move too fast, then you can probably get the hook out of the fish’s mouth and even cause a hunting accident.

I am fishing with a fake in relatively deep water that does not flow fast.

Lift your fishing line upwards and place the hooks in the mouth of the fish. Because most of the fish attacking the fake will want to move in a different direction with panic. Since it is difficult to determine the right direction during this panic, it is best to take this gap by lifting the fishing line and making the needles sit in the mouth of the fish.

Some fish prefer to throw themselves on the spot instead of moving left and right in panic at the first hit. In this case, after removing your fishing line, do not forget to adjust your fishing line according to the tension of the fishing line and rod.

In addition, you may need to tire the fish by keeping your fishing line parallel to the water in some cases against the possibility of very active fish splashing on the water.

I’m fishing in the sea and using an above-water fake?

When using an above-water forge, the fishing line is mostly kept high. The aim is for the fake to move properly and stay afloat. In addition, in order to whisk the fishing line drawn vertically, it needs to be wrapped a little due to the disadvantage created by the fishing line gap, which is a waste of time.

In such cases, as soon as you feel that the fish has taken the fake in its mouth, again parallel to the water, hit your fishing line against the direction of attack of the fish and put the hooks in. Otherwise, the probability of removing the fake from the mouth of the fish before the needle fits into the mouth of the fish is very high and it may come back as if it was thrown with a fake slingshot.

The important thing is to be able to attach the fake to the fish even if it is a single needle. Later, thanks to the panic of the fish, other hooks can be attached. You can use your fishing line both parallel and perpendicular to the water while tiring the fish. But while doing this, you have to be very careful with the fishing line gap.

Again, you need to hit your fishing line in an upright position. Because although you do not know the direction of the fish, you need the advantage of distance due to the fishing line gap. Also, you were already holding the fishing rod downwards while shooting the fake and you lost your distance advantage, remember that.

As can be seen in summary, the criteria are simply the physical structure of the fish, its behavior, the speed of the water, the way you use the fishing line, and the fishing method you use. You may be confused when you read the article, but trust your ” instincts ” more because the logic is based on not missing the hook fish

Because fishing is a job of luck and destiny based on randomness. Whether you are a professor or an associate professor, the important thing is to make the right move at the right time.
