Thrown Baits - What To Cast Next?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so the question is something like this......You cast a certain bait, retrieve it.....Bam, you catch a fish....bringing it in, then he jumps, and throws your bait, fish is lost.

 

 

What do you do next?  

Do you cast the same bait in the hopes he'll grab it again?

Do you cast something different?

Is it just pointless to try and get that fish back onto the hook, a second time?

 

 

Bear in mind, this is not a "missed strike."  This is a caught fish that throws the hook.

Very rarely that fish will strike again unless it is very aggressive. However it is definitely worth some more casts in that spot as there could be other fish excited by the commotion.

Agree with MassBass - doubtful you'll catch the hooked fish again, but there might be more hanging around that area so it's always worth a few follow up casts.

Agree.  I would throw the same bait for that reason.  If that doesn't work try the opposite approach.  softbait or reaction lure.

I'd throw the same bait. If it worked once, it'll probably work again.

I check everything in my power that would prevent another drop, fix the things I can control, and keep fishing the bait until I feel it's not what will get bit.
