If you're new to the world of fishing, then you might like to try pop up bait. What is it? Well, it different from other bait in that it “pops up” from the riverbed and floats on the surface. Being able to see your bait like that is assuring and will let you know that nothing has gone wrong. It will also be much easier for you to identify when you've got a bite. Definitely recommended if this is going to be one of your very first fishing trips.

Best Pop Ups for Surface Fishing

So how exactly does a pop up work? Well, it's quite simple really. You toss in a few pieces of bait, one attached to your hook and the others surrounding it. The fish then start eating them and you win over their trust, but once they get to the hook one, you've got them right where you want them and it's time to reel them in.

    The visual aspect is what a lot of people appreciate. With other types of bait, generally you don't have any idea what's going on – it's under the water and you can't see a thing. Maybe you're using a bit of live bait and it's wiggled off the hook? You'd never know. Using a pop up helps to provide you with reassurance throughout the whole process, which is why it has been a consistent favourite among many fisher people.

    Different fish tend to respond to different types of bait and different types of bait tend to be more or less effective depending on the time of year. If you're finding that your usual approach has become less effective, it could be down to seasonal factors. Whenever something like this happens, it can be a good idea to experiment with other types of bait. You might actually find that a pop up is not only more effective, but that you find it easier to use too. Context will always play an important role.

At the end of the day, a big factor is what you as an individual feel comfortable with and how you personally wish to proceed. Go for whatever suits you.
