What is bait elastic?

Bait elastic is a stretchy, thin thread used by anglers to secure bait on to hooks. It ensures the bait stays intact and firmly attached, especially when casting or when the bait is under water, exposed to currents or the attention of smaller fish.

Should I use bait elastic for pike fishing?

Using bait elastic for pike fishing can be beneficial, especially when using soft or fragile baits that may come loose easily. It ensures that the bait remains on the hook, presenting well to the target fish.

Do I tie a knot in bait elastic?

No, you typically do not need to tie a knot in bait elastic. Instead, you wrap the elastic several times around the bait and hook, stretching it as you go. Once secure, you can simply break or cut off the excess. The tension in the wrapped elastic will keep it in place.

What is a pike bait oil syringe used for?

A pike bait oil syringe is a tool used to inject oils or attractants directly into bait. This ensures that the bait releases the attractant scent over a prolonged period underwater, potentially making it more enticing to pike.

How can I pop-up my pike bait with an air syringe?

An air syringe can be used to introduce a small pocket of air into the bait, making it buoyant or "popped-up". To do this:

Insert the needle of the air syringe into the bait.

Inject a small amount of air into the bait until it achieves the desired buoyancy.

Remove the syringe and present the bait as usual. The bait should now float or suspend off the bottom.

What are the advantages of popping up pike baits?

Popping up pike baits offers several advantages:

It keeps the bait off the bottom, away from debris/weeds and potential snags.

It presents the bait in a more visible and accessible position for pike.

Floating baits can move more naturally with the water currents, potentially attracting more attention.

It can make the bait more noticeable to pike patrolling at mid-water depths.

What are fishing bait scissors used for?

Fishing bait scissors are specialised scissors designed for preparing and cutting bait. They are typically sharper and more robust than regular scissors, allowing anglers to cut through tougher baits like fish, squid or eel with ease. They can also be used to trim excess bait to achieve the desired size or shape.
