slide bait fishing is an ingenious style that enables anglers to send a bait that would normally be too large to cast well out into deeper water. Casting live baits over large distances often results in the fish landing in poor condition or being completely torn from the hooks. Slide baiting is a fantastic technique that was originally used in South Africa and Europe to reach the deeper waters of their multi sectional surf breaks. Simply cast the grapnel sinker out into your desired fishing location and securely lock it into the sea floor ensuring the main line remains as tight as possible! Now grab your readily baited slide bait rig and clip it onto the main line. Remember to keep the main line as tight as possible at all stages of this process to avoid the clip from tangling. The rig and bait will now slowly make their way out to the stopper. Shaking the rod tip continuously during the first couple of minutes of the slide helps to get baits down the line. Once a fish comes along and snaffles the bait it will take off tearing the sinker from the sea floor and setting the hook into itself. All the angler has to do now is pick up the outfit and begin the battle!
