Why not go fish for my bait
In the Rhine there are about 36 native fish species (non-predatory fish and predatory fish), which have very different eating habits and bait preferences. As a budding angler you don't know which fishing lure is suitable for which fish. Over time, however, you can quickly find out which fish prefers which bait and which bait can be used to selectively fish certain fish ...
In the following bait table you will find a list of numerous fish species native to the Rhine and other rivers and still waters as well as their fishing bait preferences. This bait table is suitable as a little help for both beginners and advanced anglers who are keen to experiment and want to expand their fishing knowledge a little.
Info: The fish in the table are in alphabetical order.
• Fish scraps
• Small, finger-length, dead bait fish
For eel fishing, the dewworm is the undisputed fishing lure No. 1
Small dead corfish and scraps of fish usually bring the large specimens.
With maggots, eels are usually only caught as bycatch when bottom angling. Maggots are not recommended as bait for targeted eel fishing.
• Wet flies & nymphs
• Maggots, pinkies
Light stip fishing with maggots, pinkies and dung worms is also a catchy method of fishing for grayling.
• Bundles of maggots
• Grasshopper (depending on the season)
• Flake of bread
• Small wobblers, spinners
In the summer you can also fish Alande very well with a surface mount and a grasshopper or a flake of bread as bait.
Alande can also be caught with small spinning baits such as spinners, twisters and mini wobblers. The particularly large specimens are sometimes predatory.
• aerobatics (fly fishing)
Aerobatic fly fishing is also a very good bait for brown trout.
Maggots and worms are more of a second choice bait. Maggots and worms should be actively offered and slowly cranked up.
• aerobatics (fly fishing)
Brook char can also be fished with a fly rod - dry flies, weighted / carefree nymphs and streamers (e.g. Wooly Bugger) should be used as bait.
Hard cheese (as a 1cm cube) is also a very good fishing lure for barbel - this is particularly useful for outsmarting large barbel.
Thawworm is a second choice barbel bait and only brings barbel as bycatch.
In the meantime, there are barbel boilies and mini boilies (with cheese flavor) to buy, with which you can achieve very good catches. One advantage of boilies is that you don't have to change them as often as the bait mentioned above.
• Small spinners, wobblers and jigs
Small spinners, wobblers, twisters and rubber fish are also among the TOP baits for perch.
Maggots are rather unsuitable for targeted fishing for perch. Perch with maggots are often only caught as bycatch.
Corn (also in combination with maggots) is also one of the best fishing lures for bream.
Bream is occasionally caught with worms as by-catch.
Boilies and mini boilies with a vanilla flavor are ideal for targeted fishing for large bream.
• Cherries (depending on the season)
• (Swimming) bread
• flies (fly fishing)
Chub can also be fished well with swim bread on sight. Make sure, however, that only you can see the chub and not the other way around! ;)
Many anglers swear by cherries as chub bait - but these are only caught in the cherry season, when the fish have got used to cherries that naturally fall from trees.
When fly fishing with artificial flies, chubs are also caught very often and well.
• dough balls
Natural baits such as dungworm and maggot are also very catchy.
Small kernels of corn are often caught when the water is under very strong fishing pressure and the fish spurn all other bait.
Maize is also a good bait - offered at the base assembly, the maize baits should be offered floating above the bottom of the water.
Gudgeons can also be caught well with small worms or pieces of worm.
Corn and bread can also be used for fishing for white goods. Both baits can also be offered in combination with maggots - also a very catchy bait.
Small worms can sometimes be used to catch gusts.
• Blinkers, spinners, rubber fish
Spoons, spinners and rubber fish are the TOP baits for pike. The bigger the bait choice, the bigger the expected pike.
Carp can also be caught with dewworm and maggots, but not specifically and they are more likely to be caught as bycatch.
When fishing with maggots, it is advisable to offer a whole bundle of maggots and to renew the maggots every now and then - they must always be moving and alive.
• Flake of bread
Boilies, bread flakes, corn and worms are also suitable as bait. However, it is also important to offer the bait at or just above the surface of the water.
Silver spinners are also very good baits for fishing for sea trout.
• Fish scraps
• Small bait fish
Fish scraps and small finger-length bait fish are also suitable for burbot fishing, but are nowhere near as catchy as worms.
• Asp lead
All artificial baits (asp lead, spinner, blinker) that are carried quickly and just below the surface of the water are very catchy asp baits.
The color and shape of the bait should be tailored to the asp's natural prey.
• Bee maggots
• Trout batter
Maggots, bee maggots, mealworms, and common worms are also great for fishing for rainbow trout. The bait should best be actively dragged - either on the sbirolino or on the float.
Trout batter is also very catchy and should also be actively offered and cranked up. Trout batter is compressed into a plate with the hook hidden inside. The token must flutter around in the water.
Roach are only caught with worms as bycatch.
With worms, rudd is more likely to be caught only as bycatch.
• Maggots & Pinkies
Maggots and pinkies are also very catchy tench baits.
As an alternative to maggots / pinkies, they can also be caught with small, pinhead-sized bread balls.
• Bundles of worms
A bundle of ten or more tauworms threaded on a hook is also very catchy for catfish.
• Soft lure and twister
Pikeperch can also be outwitted very well with a soft lure or twister (size 12-15cm) plucked above the bottom of the water. The bigger the bait choice, the bigger the pikeperch to be expected.
