When you're out on a fishing trip, one of the best ways to get your bait out to those delicious fish is with a carp fishing catapult. If you want something that will really tempt those little carps to go for your bait, then these catapults are definitely something you might like to consider. Fish are wily beings, and they won't always go for the bait alone – sometimes you need a carp catapult to act as a further lure. If you do use one, you might find that you yield better results next time you want to do a bit of angling.
How to use a Fishing Catapult
Let's say you sit down to fish somewhere. How do you know that there are any fish at all in the nearby vicinity? Well, you don't. That's why you've got to use a carp catapult. You fire out a few free pieces of bait and help to lure them in and help to build up the swim in your patch of the river. It's the kind of thing that can stop you from having those days where you sit out waiting for fish which never come. It's always somewhat disappointing to find yourself in such a situation.
So, now you know what a fishing catapult can do for you. But how exactly do you make one work? Well, it's not too difficult. It's essentially the same as a regular catapult – you just load up the bait, pull back and launch it into the river. Then all of the carp out in the river (or any other type of fish which you happen to be fishing, e.g. bluegill, bream, bass) will know that there's some good food going in your area and swim over to take a look. All of a sudden, you'll find you're getting loads of bites!
It can be tough to decide what sort of bait to use in your catapult. Boilies can come in quite handy as you can get some good range with them; potentially luring large portions of the river's population. But if you want a somewhat more natural approach, you may like to consider a slow release bait full of maggots. Fish love maggots and this really helps to grow your swim.
