Fishing Lizards | Tips and Tricks|
Fishing Lessons come from both seeing things for what they are and seeing things differently. We have several of these lizards living in the folds and crevices of our back yard cinder block fences (don’t be afraid of them, and don’t kill them – they are bug eaters). We call them “Lazarus Lizards’. Like one of Christ’s miracles, I asked Lazarus to “Come Out”.
Lizards, like fish, are cold blooded creatures, where they must physically warm up before they move. Then, with more and more warmth from the Sun, they begin to move in spurts with long pauses in-between. What should this tell us about Lizard Bait Presentation – or any other bait for that matter?
Whether from season to season, time of day, shade from any source, influx of water current, or water column depth – If the water is cold move your baits very little with long pauses between twitches. As “things” warm up make the spurts longer, but still pause the bait longer.
As indicated earlier, fish are also cold blooded. When fish find their environment cold for any reason, they won’t be as active as if it were warmer. Point being, we have to adjust our bait presentations to fit the natural environment or we won’t be as successful as we would like. . . we will either scare the fish away, or inadvertently pass them by without nudging them into striking.
