Fishermen Advocates: Disclosing Forgery in Fishing Industries




Main » 2013 » April » 11


According to tests and general observations in the nature, pursuits of horizontally moving small objects, float up small objects and sinking small objects are stereotypical motor acts in the feeding behaviour of fish (Protasov, 1968). These motor acts as well as typical feeding poses play an important signaling role in the intraspecific (like roach-roach) and interspecific (like perch-roach) relationships. Furthermore, predatory fish prefer to attack foraging prey over nonforaging ones and nose-down foraging prey over horizontally foraging ones (Krause & Godin, 1996). The foregoing patterns when evidently larger objects pursue horizontally moving, lifting and sinking smaller objects can be imitated by two odd sized artificial lures, using the well known lure slip, rise and fall retrieving technique.

Fishing Practice

In our context, teasers are small (ranged from 2-3 mm to several centimeters) hookless lures that are used with spinners, spoons, wobblers, jigs and other relatively large lures. Small teasers are located at the main line ahead of the main lure to simulate the foregoing odd object patterns. As for rigging, sliding teasers, in particular, are strung directly on the line without knots or loops that weaken the line. Teaser’s sliding along the line is restrained by 2-way swivel, with the attached leader (line, steel, fiber) and main lure, or rear and front tightly sliding silicon stoppers.

Roundish Teasers

One large bead of bright colors or 2, 3 and more smaller beads located at the main line ahead of the main lure are powerful teasers that significantly increase the number of bites this lure due to the foregoing effect. Spheric, oval and cylindrical. Floating, suspending and sinking. Among teasers of this type, the so called gogglers in the form of plastic or metallic roundish beads with the bilateral notches to stick in 2D & 3D holographic eye-spots have an impressive effectiveness.

Relatively large silicon stoppers of eye catching colors also are good sliding teasers.

Tube Teasers

The very usable tube teasers are made of hard plastic and metallic tubes of bright colors without or with the additional decorations. Simple tubes of white, red, copper, gold and silver colors as well as tubes wrapped with the holographic foil are sufficiently effective. Fig.1 illustrates the dramatically effective tubes with eye-spots, gratings, stripes and other the so called amimetic units.

Vibrating Teasers

The modern soft plastic materials allow to create sliding teasers with vibrating and undulating adnexa, depending on their length, that are highly attractive. Fig.2 illustrates double curly tail "grubs” of small size (about 1″). Dancing Eggs with tails, produced by Atlas Mike’s Bait Co., also are highly effective. To extend the life of soft teasers, we recommend to paste in their bodies the thin longitudinal plastic tubes, as it is made in the olivette weights used in bobber fishing.
