Quick On the Cast Means More Fish Caught

Snakehead Fish Haruan
One quick accurate cast was all it took to get this haruan

A good example of the importance of being quick on the cast and accurate as well, will catch us more fish was demonstrated on a recent Haruan (Striped Snakehead) fishing trip. I’ve emphasized on this in a previous post. Please check it out if you missed it.

I need to also highlight the need to be always on the lookout for (sometimes subtle) signs of fish. A tool that can help us on this is a pair of high-quality polarized sunglasses.

Currently I’m using Cocoons. If you’ve never tried polarized sunglasses, you’ll be amazed with the improved fish-spotting ability it provides. And if you’ve gone through different grades of polarized sunglasses like I have, you’ll also know all polarized sunglasses are not created equal.

One Cast One Fish

On that short morning of casting in heavily fished waters, Ed caught the first not-big-but-decent haruan on his very first cast after spotting a rising fish – using a Rapala XRSH.

The second fish, a little bigger than the first, was caught in only his third cast to the edge of a weedy island. Also after having eyed signs of fish. This time allowing his Mazzy frog to sink and waiting for that distinctive “bump” before setting the hook home.

Soft plastic fishing can be loads of excitement too
