Section 2: Types of Tackle and Bait you can use to be successful

This is a overview of baits that can be used. While it is impossible to cover all the different types of baits out there, I cover some of the top baits I use and recommend that you use to improve your chances of catching lots of fish.


Live bait is my most recommended bait to use. Some of these types of bait are very soft and I show you how to get it out there without throwing the bait off the hook.


This is my best technique for catching fish. You will catch more fish by using this rig or a variation of it. You can fish most live baits, dough baits and other kinds of bait with the rig.

Rod and Reel types and the use for each kind. The right rod for the right kind of fishing.
