Author Topic: What do you think of the fishing method, and choice of bait?

Hey all,

I was walking thru Green Timbers lake in Surrey today with the girlfriend. I happened to notice that all the fishermen had all of their lines sunken to the bottom of the lake, and they were just sitting there waiting for the rod to shake. When casting their lines into the water, their lines went about 100 yards or more out because of all the weight they had used. On a closer look, the bait was shrimp or a tiny orange trout pellet sunken 1ft-2ft off the bottom. I thought to myself, not only does this method of fishing look boring, but it kinda looks like cheating due to the distance of the cast, and the choice of their bait. Are'nt the trout pellets that these fishermen are using, not simular to the ones that the hatchery fed the fish before they stocked the lake? What do you all think of the method?, do you consider it to be a disadvantage to the fish, and kinda cheating. To me it looks like a way to cheat yourself out of a good fishing day. Just wondering if anyone here does this, and could answer me why they do it? Specially in a lake that small.

those are single eggs is all. thats how you float fish. bobber, hook and single eggs. and sit and wait.

dynamite is cheating, sitting patiently waiting for a fish to bite your hook is fishing...

that would be called bottem fishing, similar to bobber and worm but your bait is on the bottem. Can be a nice way to fish if you want to relax. the trout pellets or power bait works ell because it flots a few feet above your weight on the bottem.

How's this cheating ?? It's called bottom fishing .!! I fished green timbers yesterday and did really well caught 5-6 and one 5 lbs der bottom fishing .!
