But remember to be careful and not overdo it. Sometimes, fish are super aggressive and will get a bait without a lot of help. For example, you might ask, “If counting to three works well with a worm, why not count to five, or even ten?”
Well, if you go that route the fish is much more likely to swallow the bait completely and suffer real damage.
Instead, a quick three count, check the fish to see if it has it and then stick it to ‘em. The rest of these tips pose little additional risk to the fish. So, try implementing them the next time you’re on the water and see if they help!
