It is because a lot of fish tend to swallow the bait with the hook attached, and you can really hurt the fish by trying to remove it. If that does happen then you definitely should cut the road near the mouth before you decide to let it go.
Keep the seasons and time in mind when you are fishing. For example, if it is summer and quite warm, you might want to consider fishing as the sun is setting right up until it gets dark. In the spring time it is better to fish in the afternoon once the sun has warmed up the water a bit.
When you are using grubs and are using a heavy line to fish with, make sure your grub includes a sharp and strong hook. Avoid hooks created using fine wire because bass can certainly straighten these hooks. You can use thin wire hooks when fishing with light line since they’re better suited for softer hook sets.
When fishing, it is very important to keep noise to a minimum. Believe it or not, fish are incredibly sensitive to noise. If you’re sitting on the side of a lake or pond fishing, keep your voice level low and do not have a radio beside you blaring music or even the ballgame. If you are fishing from a boat, avoid banging around inside your boat and from tossing your anchor noisily overboard.
Fishermen that are willing to catch their own bait and want something other than earthworms, could be wise to chase down a couple grasshoppers.

At one time fishing was the biggest participant sport in the UK, in fact more people went fishing than paid to watch football matches. The sport’s popularity has lessened somewhat, especially amongst the youngsters whose lives would now appear to be totally driven by their mobile phones and social media. Many of them will never experience being at one with the countryside, will never see the amazing range of wildlife living in and around our fishing waters and will never understand the peace and solitude that a day sitting on the banks of a lake or river offers. Sadly, that’s their loss but for those of us who have been bitten by the fishing bug the following website has plenty of information related to fishing in the UK http://chidfcp.livejournal.com/3378.html.

Eighty one percent of all fish caught have been over 30lbs, including a fair proportion over 35lb. The lake is open for anyone to fish from the end of July onwards; you can book 48 or 96 hour sessions on line at www.holmefenfishery.co.uk The Lake will only be open for 4 nights per week and then closed again in November. Recent captures are too numerous to list, but some very nice ones are pictured in this report, including a lovely forty plus Mirror for Colin Lambert and a new PB and ladies lake record for Liz Hicks. Willow Lake at Fenland Fisheries is producing the goods for some anglers; Terry Holmes used our Squidly Diddly boilies to bank 10 fish from peg 20 during a 3 night stay which included 3 Thirties! Steve Calver bagged Frisby at 43lb also from peg 20, Paul Pitcher managed a 30lb plus mirror on the Coco Fruit from peg 13 , Darren Underwood had a 37lb 40z Mirror on The Cell from peg 6 and Chris Fountain had a PB 40lb Common from peg 13. David Williams had a big hit which included 9 Carp with Commons up to 34lb plus and a 42lb Mirror. Located on the same site Vermuyden Lake is producing some great fishing for our day and night fishing visitors, Mark Batty had 18 Carp to 29lb during a three night session and Simon Mccoll had an eleven fish catch. My favourite capture however, is Lewis Butlers Mirror that he stalked in the margins using floating crust, a fine piece of old school angling. Our Whittle Mere syndicate at Teakettle Fisheries is producing a few nice scaly mirrors but pride of place has to go to Steve Evans, who banked a stunning, previously uncaught mirror of 32lbs plus on the neighboring Thorney Mere. At Woodpecker Lake on Earith Lakes Fisheries, things have picked up well thru April and into early May, with some lovely fish being reported. Syndicate member Peter used the Coco Fruit to bank a brace of Thirty Pound plus Commons, and the Mirror known as Patricia at 40lb 1oz!! Ian Harle used the same bait to bank Mirrors of 31lb and 38lb plus! More news, from this great venue in our next report .
