How do I learn how to structure fish?
Structure Elimination System
START CATCHING FISH USING THE STRUCTURE ELIMINATION SYSTEM!!
Simply put this System is a systematic elimination of the various structures that exist is all lakes.
First of all, this system is not for the lazy man! It involves a continuous process of moving around the lake in set time periods.
You will need basic equipment to get started. First you will need three rods in the boat (most of you have two with you anyway). What kind of rods? We'll leave that to your discression. It all depends what you are fishing for. Usually, we recommend two medium-light rods and one medium-heavy rod: this allows you to handle all species of fish and ALL sizes!
Once equipped with three rods, the next important step is in picking the baits to attach to them.
ON THE FIRST ROD - we'll attach a jig or a spinner bait. As far as color is concerned, use the age-old fishing rule: Light day light color; dark day dark color. Obviously, this can all vary depending on what part of the country you're fishing in.
ON THE SECOND ROD - we'll attach a bottom rig (like the Lindy Rig) or any rig that you can attach some live bait to. Maybe a bobber or float depending on the depth of the structure you are fishing or if you are close to a weedbed and you want to stay in a certain spot and depth.
ON THE THIRD ROD - we'll attach an artificial bait, of your choice, although we suggest that you stick to those artificials that are known for their fish-catching effectiveness... Rapala, Rebel, etc. Also keep in mind, ask what works on that particular lake at the bait shop you will probably go to. Especially if you don’t know the lake very well. Even if you do, you will probably ask anyway.
On the first rod, you have an option - the jig can either be fished as is or combined with live bait: Nightcrawlers in the summer and Minnows in the spring and fall. You can use other live baits, too, depending on the species and size of fish you are after.
On the second rod, you do not have an option -the bottom rig must be fished in combination with live bait. Again, we strongly suggest crawlers (Summer) and minnows (Spring and Fall) the majority of the time and also depending on what part of the country you are in.
Here's how it works.... your first few minutes on the lake are spent observing the surrounding water and shorelines. Utilizing a lake map is also a handy tool to identify and plan where to start fishing. YOU ARE LOOKING FOR STRUCTURE!! You notice a patch of reeds. That's a starting point. You motor over and begin with the three rod process of elimination. You are working within a 30-minute time period. In other words, in 30 minutes, using the live and artificial bait combinations on the three rods, you are to fully cover that structure in an effort to determine if fish are present.
Believe this, through a fan casting or drifting or trolling procedure, you will learn quickly if there is any action to be had.
REMEMBER THIS.... fish are migratory creatures. They seldom stay in one place for more than a few minutes: if you're lucky, 20 to 30 minutes. They DO move from spot to spot. So, even if you are fishing a known hotspot or one that seems potentially productive, DON'T be surprised if there is no action to be had. And by using the three bait approach with a 30-minute period to establish contact, you WILL KNOW if they are or are not there!
So what do you do if, after 30 minutes, that patch of reeds produces nothing? YOU MOVE ON! To another structure. No, it doesn't matter what kind of structure.
There never has been a time when catching fish was really difficult...there are certain rules of fishing that, when applied consistently, will never fail to yield limits of fish, no matter the species. If a fisherman does fail, then it is not the supposedly wily, wary, and mysterious fish that causes all the problems; but rather, the fisherman himself who probably lacks the very basic knowledge about fish, their habits and habitats. Weather systems also affect fishing. Understanding high pressure systems are better for fishing as opposed to low pressure systems.
With the Structure Elimination System, a fisherman does not have to be a modern day fishing genius to be successful. Not by a long shot! Let's face it, with organizations popping up all over the place, extolling the joys of scientific fishing, well, it's no small wonder that a good many average fishermen are beginning to feel left out in the race for fishing limits and lunkers. It's almost as if these so-called scientists are trying to convince the world that their way is the only way to ensure success in fishing.
But consider this long before these super pros came along, there were men who did catch fish consistently. Using the same basic rules of fishing that has been responsible for fishing success. Using the Structure Elimination System, you get back to these basics and reap tremendous rewards as a result.
What type of structure - JUST STRUCTURE!
And, once again, you begin the 30-minute elimination method using the different bait presentations.
That IS the Structure Elimination System. It's simple. It's effective. It works! On the average, in an 8 to 10 hour fishing day, most guys will never hit more that four or five spots, if that. Using our system, you can hit 15 to 20 spots a day!
The key though is your willingness to stick faithfully to the plan, the continuous moving-from-spot-to-spot process. If you do that, then you WILL be successful using this system of catching fish.
