Fishing Question

Recommended Posts

Today while fishing above the boat ramp a guy came in the area with a couple of other people in the boat and the first thing he did was throw a couple of scoops of something into the water.

I have never seen this before - any idea as to what he was doing?

I am pretty sure it wasnt live bait by the sound it made when it hit the water - I bet it was trout food. Hopefully it helped him as we coulndt hardley get a solid bite all day.

Thanks for the clarification

One day I saw trout hitting like crazy and kids were standing there they were afraid. I said what are you doing the girl said I kept pellets from the tour I said watch this I threw in and I landed a 17 in rainbow in about 2 seconds . They were shocked I wasn't mad at them I said thank you. LOL

jagermeister anyone?

Could have been corn. I've seen several of the old time fishermen doing it before.

I first started trout fishing in Kansas City at the winter trout ponds. I would use corn as bait, but I would chum the area by throwing handfuls of corn into the area I was fishing. I always caught a ton and it was a blast. However, I started chumming and releasing(Hey, I was 17 and dumber than a box of rocks) and nearly got into a fight with a bum who was mad about my practices. Never have used corn since, but for some reason this story made me think about it.

I've heard corn will kill fish because they can't digest it properly. Is that true? We've caught a lot of trout down at Taney that were full of corn before. Always wondering what effect it had on bigger fish.

If that's true, then the white river in arkansas should be dead by now.
