I practise various fishing techniques when I am out on lakes and rivers depending on the chosen location and fish I want to catch:

Spin casting /Jerkbait / Big bait (swimbait, big tubes) / Trolling,Live bait / Dead bait / Mort maniè /  Vertical jigging

I practise, support and promote the practice of catch-and-release fishing (especially for  pike and black bass), even if I have nothing against retaining fish if you intend to eat it with friends or family.
