Fishing On The Stone Bottom Doesn’t Have To Be Hard. Read These 4 Tips

1.How to prevent fishing lures from snagging on the stone bottom

The stone bottom is very easy to snag your fishing lure. Your fishing lure will get stuck in the crevices of the stone, which may be easier to snag than in grassy areas. So what you have to do is not to drag the fishing lure straight through, but to jump off the bottom.

When you reel, if you feel resistance, stop reeling immediately. Then pick it up with your rod tip and your fishing lure will jump vertically over the stone seam. Pay attention to the difference between resistance and bite.

2. Use the right trolling lure

Crayfish usually like to live in areas with stone bottom, especially in spring, they will be very active near the stone. Therefore, using a crawfish soft lure to fish on a stone bottom will have better results. It doesn't matter if you use it for Football Jig or Shaky Head. And it doesn't matter what brand of shrimp lure you use. You can even try the lobster-colored Crankbait.

3. Regarding temperature

Compared with wood and grass, stones absorb the heat of the sun more easily. Because fish are cold-blooded animals, they like to stick to stones most of the time. In winter, in the prenatal spring or when a cold front passes, you are bound to get a good harvest by looking for fish near the stones. Of course, there will be fish near the stone at any time of the year. It's just that the probability of having fish in this case will be greater.
