How to use a warning or bite indicator?

It is vitally important to detect fish bites in time . If we don’t do it at the right time we can lose the catch and the time we have invested in it will have been in vain.

Detecting a bite without using any element is quite complicated, because the view gets tired and, after a period of time, we begin to doubt. Needless to say, it is not something impossible, of course! But neither can anyone deny that in the last hours of a day we lose more pieces than we capture.

To avoid this small inconvenience we can help ourselves with some other elements and resources , such as, for example, placing a piece of wool of a bright color on the line itself , so that when we see that it changes height we detect that a fish has stung. You can also mark the line at a certain height to control its movement. They are simple, homemade and cheap solutions but they continue to make us strain our eyes.

Another non-sound warning method is to put “eyes” on the buoy , so that when it sinks because the fish wants to take the bait, the fisherman knows that something has happened. But this, like the previous methods, makes the fisherman have to be paying attention to specific points . Even so, it is easier to identify and does not require a huge financial outlay.

In any case, these solutions, although simple, we see that they require a lot of attention and an overexertion of our eyes. This is the reason why the bite warning device exists . This will be the one that will tell us that there has been a bite, so that the fisherman himself must be fast and have a good reaction capacity so as not to lose the prey but, with everything and with that, we are not deteriorating our vision.

Hence, this type of device is essential for expert fishermen who spend a lot of time waiting for the catch. Using a bite detector is very simple. Next, we are going to explain how it works and how you can enjoy all its advantages , since it is currently used for two different purposes.

Supporting the indicator on the surface of the water

Using these indicators to detect a bite is interesting, although their accuracy is quite limited. They are quite bulky signalers and their cast is quite complicated for the fisherman , since some bites are usually missed.

They are made with putty, foam and yarn . They are usually used in the event that the lures are heavy, since the size of these indicators adapts to their weight.

Within this classification are the springs that serve to indicate that a line is wound . These, on the other hand, are not suitable for lures that are too heavy and, in addition, they must be greased frequently. But they have the particularity that they are more precise and, therefore, more interesting to use.
