Shot method

Predators lurk around obstacles such as stones, underwater roots or among aquatic vegetation. Some anglers avoid such places, so as not to break the artificial bait. However, I am not too afraid of snagging, because thanks to the described trick I almost always manage to retrieve a hooked bait. For this purpose, I direct the tip towards the hook, I hold the line with my finger, I open the bail and tighten the line tightly. Rapid release of the taut line causes it to "shoot" it and release the bait.

If there is a snag, stretch the line (left), then release it quickly. The reel lock must be closed, the bail should be held with your hand, so that it does not bend.
