There are many fake baits suitable for Catfish, and different fake baits have different application scenarios and selection methods. Today, I will focus on the use of lead hooks and soft baits.

Fake bait options for catfish fishing

Soft bait is a kind of lure bait, which is generally processed from plastic, rubber, and silicone materials to make it look like various aquatic animals. There are many types of soft bait. For catfish fishing, it is recommended to use capuchin or T-tail soft bait. The characteristics of soft bait are flexible and vivid swimming style, soft movement, and can be searched all over the water. The disadvantage is that it is more difficult to operate, and it is not as good as hard bait in throwing.

Advantages of Catfish Fake Bait

The use of soft bait is mainly based on two considerations.

One is that soft bait has seasonal advantages. In the case of bad catches in winter, soft bait is easy to import, so the fishing rate is higher than other fake bait;

The second is the high-cost performance of soft bait. The punctuation of fishing catfish generally has a complicated bottom structure, which is easy to hang on the bottom, and the loss rate of fake bait is high. The price of the combination of lead hook and soft bait is lower than that of hard bait, which is economical.
