Neighborhood sewer fishing is the next big thing. Here’s a tutorial.
If you have ever been neighborhood sewer fishing, then this is not news to you. But if you haven’t, get ready to have your mind blown.
Sewer fishing will force you to use a little more finesse and patience, but the dividends will pay off.
There you have it. It is possible, and you can be successful at it. It does take some strategy, as the Fish Whisperer shows in this video. The tackle is fairly standard. Trilene 20-pound test with a small circle hook and a 2-to-3-ounce sinker that will not fall through the hole when the fish is hooked.
Fish Whisperer makes the distinction that the the sewer must be a storm sewer and must be near a pond and that it cannot be a sanitation sewer.
The great thing about using a circle hook is that one can go inside, get a bite to eat and look out the window to see if there’s a fish on the hook. Or you can just pop up a lawn chair and wait to see what bites.
