Hi AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about matching the hatch – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=IiEJwLtQ23Y
I have written some posts on this and decided it would be better communicated to all of you via a video. I shot this one this past winter while ice fishing, you can clearly see what matching the hatch is through the examples I use.
This is a great way to attract and catch more fish, matching your bait to the feed in the lakes. Example if the baitfish are all white belly with a light brown back, longer leaner looking and move quickly you will want to match this exact species.
By selecting a similar body style of bait, pretty close colour pattern and speed in the water you are right in the game of having your bait confused amongst the others.
I have fished like this a usually start my day out by matching the feed in the lakes, personally I feel fish react to the natural looking stuff almost immediately prior to tossing out something bright and different looking.
If you match the hatch on your outings you will see very quickly how much of a difference it makes!
Hope you found this video helpful…
