Question about prefishing

Recommended Posts

Hi tomorrow I will be prefishing for state qualifiers on Sunday. I was watching tv the other day and they said that when prefishing you should not catch any fish (instead you should just let them get off the hook) because they will not bite the next day. I wanted to know if this is true because if it is i dont want to catch a big one prefishing and not be able to catch it during the tourny but i also do not want to let them all get off and find out during the tourny that they are all 10 inchers.

Thanks

Chris Mickey

In your case, you need to set the hook on some but no more than 2 per spot. Really it's best to set the hook on one per hole. You need to know what class of fish are biting you.

CJ is right.  I normally have a rule of setting hooks until I get a keeper or the quality size fish i need to win the tournament.  One "quality fish" per spot and then I either shake'em off, or look for new water.

This can bite you though sometimes.......Back in April, my first hookset on a new spot was on a 7 1/2 lb fish!!  Ouch!  I got out of there and caught a 5 1/2 lbr durring the tourney, but it was pretty bittersweet catching that fish while prefishing.

Good luck on your tourney

Well i dint win. I did average but there were about 3 people that caught about 7 lbs. more than any one else. The fishing was AMAZING though i caught 15 keepers within 4 hours.
