Ghost fishing, often referred to as cormorant fishing, is a new name for what many people already know as bottom fishing. Bottom fishing involves catching fish by catching the fish with the net and takes place almost exclusively in freshwater lakes, swamps, and of course, in the oceans.
As well as being called bottom fish, many types of fish are attracted to these nets. Many are attracted to it because they see it as a natural habitat. Although many species prefer such living conditions, you can also see a good number of fish migrating towards such areas in the summertime. Sealine Products is very much against Ghost fishing, and wants to contribute to the reduction of this happening.
Ghost fishing may be the most destructive method of fishing that you will ever encounter, even though it may be the most popular method in some areas. Because of the natural state of the ocean, there are natural barriers that exist.
These barriers stop any type of fish from getting into the net and escaping, especially in the warmer months. Ghost fishing, as well as other methods of bottom fishing, work by scaring the fish into believing that they are going to die or be eaten when they are actually going to get to their dinner quickly.
Ghost fishing nets will stretch from the boat to where the fish have been trapped and killed. These nets also work great for catching bass and other live bait fish that you can use to attract the larger species of fish that frequent these areas of the ocean.
The problem with fishing in this manner is that a lot of the fish will be more than happy to make it onto the hook. If you are not careful, you may be eating two birds with one stone, if you catch just the right fish. Most of the fish will actually get scared off before they even get to their dinner and they simply stay in the water, which means that the fish is actually left on the hook until you get it off.
There is another method that can be used that will help prevent this, but it takes more time and skill than the more common methods that most people are familiar with. The methods that you should be looking at using instead of the ghost fishing are the side-hop and the loop-hook technique.
The side-hop method is a very common method that works because you are essentially enticing the fish to come to you instead of them. You will simply use smaller hooks with which to cast the net onto the surface where the fish was caught, and then use larger hooks that will pop the hook on the fish that they are attracted to.
Once they come to the surface, they are already familiar with the natural habitat and it will be easier for them to get back to their normal home. However, you will need to ensure that you do not hang your lure too long before releasing it because that will give the fish the opportunity to explore on the surface and try to take the bait.
If the fish spends a while on the surface, it will be very easy for it to get back to its natural habitat. The best way to test this out is to keep the lure down on the surface for a while so that it will actually get a chance to explore the area, and then release it.
The loop hook method works the same way, except that you will be putting the loop on the end of the hook, and the lure is actually brought up onto the surface where it will be easy for the fish to get to it. As well, you will need to go to a different depth and you will likely want to vary the distance that you are getting into to see if the fish has a chance to explore all the way down.
All it takes is one fish to notice the lure, and the ghost-fishing technique will send the fish swimming in search of food. A fish that is already concerned with their natural habitat will be a very dangerous fish to have.
