CASTERS-THE MAGIC BAIT/HOW TO HOOK CASTERS CORRECTLY

CASTERS-THE MAGIC BAIT/HOW TO HOOK CASTERS CORRECTLY
The traditional and perhaps most common method of hooking a caster involves burying the hook inside the bait. Using a fine wire spade end size 20 or 18 hook push the point into the blunt end of the caster, rotate the hook inside the caster until just the spade is proud of the bait and finish off by pushing the spade into the shell to end up with a totally hidden hook. The bigger and crunchier the caster is the easier this process is so it is a good idea to keep a few out of water to dry out and crisp up a bit when you are caster fishing. An alternative method of hooking is to simply hook it through the blunt end like a maggot leaving the hook visible. If the fish will have this presentation, usually when the fish are competing and you are getting lots of bites, it can be more effective as with the hook point showing more bites will be hit. The other advantage of this hooking method is that you can use smaller hooks which, when fishing on the drop for example, will not weigh the caster down as much and will allow it to sink slower than with a bigger hook. For bigger fish fish with two or three casters on a size 14 or 12 hook.Tight lines
