Foolproof Tips to Hook the Croaker

Whenever you go fishing, when we got to the beach, we assemble the equipment, checked the items and prepared baits with care. Then, comes the hopeless thought: “today is the day, that good will be if I catch a nice croaker”. The species (Micropogonias furnieri) you receive from us, passionate about their fishing, some nicknames loving. Particularly, I call them “loggerhead”, due to the large size of his head in relation to the body.

Foolproof Tips to Hook the Croaker
Fish scales thick, white belly, elongated body silver and back color with slightly purple, the corvina is a fish that occurs in the sand, very close to the background, constantly looking for food. She goes rifling through everything with his down-turned mouth. I have noticed a higher incidence of catches of the species with adverse weather conditions, rainy and the winds light. Your abocanhada is unmistakable, leading line to the background and, sure, providing great joy to the fisherman beach.

>> Equipment: the reeds of medium action and fast to pitches long, especially when we found in the channels further away from the shore. You can use line 6 to 10 pounds of resistance, or thickness between 0,16 and 0,25 mm monofilament. Even the lines thinner, when worked in conjunction with the friction of the windlass, take the croaker with water safety. The size of the hooks varies between 10 and 14. The models most commonly used are Maruseigo and Hansure.As, most of the time, are required pitches of long or medium range, fillings rounded, as the “beach bomb”, “carambola”, “drop” and “torpedo” are great options.

>> Whips: the tip most common is the whip with line 0,45 mm, two rotors, a distance of 70 cm between the rotors ($2.00 specialty stores) and leg of 30 cm. However, as we know it is a fish that enters the pernada low in the vast majority of the time, you can use a harness with only one rotor. Both are hardly found in stores. So, we have to prepare them manually, which is not at all complicated (see illustration).

>> Baits: you can use several baits in search of corvina, often with specific preferences according to the region. Squid, shrimp and corrupt are the most commonly used. Baits of medium-sized to large are welcomed. The corrupt whole, squid, small whole or pieces of large squid, prawns, whole and pieces (or “acorns”) of cameroon are abocanhados mercilessly by big-headed.
