BEIJING, CHINA - JULY 25: (CHINA OUT) A customer shops for fish at a supermarket on July 25, 2007 in Beijing, China. Beijing recently announced it will start a daily report mechanism on food safety during 'Good Luck Beijing,' a series of international pre-Olympics tournaments in 2007, as a test run for a food safety monitoring system designed for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. China admitted its supervision of food and drug safety is not satisfactory. Several high profile consumer goods scandals have surfaced in the last few months, and the former head of the State Food and Drug Administration, Zhen Xiaoyu, was recently executed after being found guilty for corruption.

Are you new to minnow fishing?  What are the types of game fishing that you can catch?  First of all, understand that it’s not always the bait that will determine what fish you can catch (though baiting is one aspect that must be considered). 

Some fish are seasonal, whereas others tend to swim in freshwater or saltwater habitats.  Some fish are found in currents whereas others stay in freshwater lakes.  Some fish may only respond to natural bait, perhaps even insects.  Other fish will only fall for artificial bait because of its versatility and stability. 

Some of the most popular types of fish for gaming are:

  • Bass
  • Salmon
  • Pike
  • Trout
  • Halibut
  • Sunfish
  • Walleye

The best thing to do is to read up on the type of fish you hope to catch and to ask some of the locals when is the peak time to catch them.  Many fish are seasonal (such as salmon) and you have to catch them at just the right time in order to get any nibbles.

You also have to understand that there are very different types of bait available to fisherman.  There is insect bait as well as reptile or amphibian bait and fish bait.  Minnow bait is one of the most popular types of bait, both natural and artificial in creation.  Natural minnow fishing is sometimes discouraged because of the risk of contamination.  However, artificial minnow fishing is quite popular—it has become the standard for many fishing tournaments.

What are some types of fish known to be attracted to minnow bait?  Some of the most notable types include bowfin, crappie, gar, perch, pickerel and rock boss.  Chub, golden shiner, fathead minnow and blunt nose minnow are especially well-regarded because of their ability to attract northern pike fish, bass, pan fish and walleyes.

Of course using live or dead minnow bait is not always the preference of fishermen and women.  Therefore, many embrace the Banjo minnow fishing system.  Fishing with Banjo involves using an artificial bait fish called the Banjo Minnow. 

This minnow is specially designed to look like a real fish and move like a real fish.  With certain casting motions, this artificial minnow can create spastic movements which look to other fish like a waiting prey. 

If you want to improve your fishing abilities then consider using Banjo minnow lures.  It’s healthier than using natural bait to you and the sea.  Plus, it gets fast results!
