Every spring, in the middle of the day, my wife and I head to a gill fishing spot near our home in the mountains. The spot is only a short drive from my home and the water is crystal clear. We fish from our kayaks and our gear is minimal.
Gill fishing is one of those things that you want to do but you don’t dare. It’s a little bit of a “what if” situation, and there are even those who claim they have done it.
As you probably know, you cant catch gill fish in the same place two or more times in the same day. The only way to get it is to get out of the way and let the fish take its time. Its like a test. If you fail it well then youre out of luck and have to start all over again.
Gill fishing is also one of those things that can be done from land. There are various techniques for catching the fish, such as using a bait, a lure, a lure hook, or a fish tackle, although for the sake of this tutorial I’ll talk only about the first technique. For the first one, we use our fishing pole with a bait in it. This bait consists of a small piece of raw fish that we pick up and throw in the water.
The fishing pole and bait are the two elements you need to get the fish. The fishing pole is the fishing line that is used to catch the fish. The bait is whatever you want to put on the fish. For the sake of this tutorial Ill put on a piece of raw fish, a fish hook, or a fish tackle. You should also use bait for those fish hooks that you use on a bigger fish.
You can also use your fish tackle to catch the fish. For that you need to have a line that has a hook on the end. You can use the line to fish, or you can use the line to clean up the fish. It’s not really a big deal though because you can always use a fish hook.
