Ultralight fishing?

cory t asked:

I’m just curious about the number of anglers who are actually interested in fishing with ultralight gear? What are your favorite lures or tactics? I recently started a group just for ultralight anglers on yahoo. Depending on how many people respond to this question, depends on whether I will keep it going. Any answers are greatly appreciated. Best answer for tactics gets 10 points. Thank you.

    I use ultralight gear when I wade creeks for smallmouth bass I usually use a Rebel teeny wee crawfish or a small grub and I catch lots of fish…….my tactics are to cast just below ripples and large rocks …….they are usually hiding there to ambush and my lures get them to strike


    By using ultra-light lures, anglers don’t eliminate any fish. If it swims and preys on other aquatic creatures, it will dine on ultra-light. This is true of everything from madtoms to muskies. True, these ultra-light lures come in several categories: Crankbaits, jigs, topwaters, spinners, soft plastics, and spoons. Most of these baits are very natural in appearance and resemble some natural prey. Crawfish, minnows, worms and insects are favorites of predator fish, and even though these downsized lures take more small fish than large ones, that’s because there are more small ones to start with.

    Anglers should stock up on lures in each category, then experiment to see which the fish prefer on that given day. In clear water, natural colors are best – brown or green crawfish, silver spinners, and spoons. However, in dingy water, such bright colors as chartreuse and yellow work well.

    I use ultralight fishing gear normally when am fishing for bluegills, largemouth bass,and speckle trout (if using a cork), but where i fish there is always a chance that you might hook up into a redfish, and you talkin about a blast. if i do decide to use it i normally use the little h and h spinner.

    I use the lightest gear I can get away with.

    For king salmon, it’s 6 and 8lb line on a 4-10lb rod. I toss spoons, spinners, and float roe for ’em.
    For steelhead, it’s the same tactics, just 4-6lb line on an ultralight G Loomis, 9″6′ 1141S 4-8lb GL3. I’ve landed King’s in the 25-30lb range on that rod too. I wasn’t targeting them, but they were in there with the steelies at the time.

    When fighting fish on ultralight, it’s all about how you play the fish. You have to be careful, much more than normal, on the angle of the rod, the pressure you put on the fish, the obstructions…etc. It’s all amplified when you’re lightlining it.

    Ultralight is just giving the fish a more than fair chance! I’m all for it! (Besides, it’s a BLAST!!)

    I use ultra lite when I am panfishing. It make any bluegill, crappie, sunfish, or bream fun to catch. My cousin caught a 11 inch bluegill and the reel screamed louder than some pike make it.

    I like Lord Necromans answer but it sounds more like he’s reffering to picking a fly for the day, again seperating fly fishing from the norm, but my point being he has the best chance of catching fish due mosly to his knowledge of what they are currently feeding on, this may change in as soon as one weeks time depending on what hatches next in this particular habitat.
