There are a few steps to properly putting in a fishing plug. The first is to make sure the plug is the right size for your line. Once you have the right-sized plug, tie it onto your line using a simple overhand knot. Leave about six inches of slack between the plug and the knot.

Next, find an opening in the water that looks like a good spot to fish. cast your line into the water by slowly releasing the slack and pointing the rod at where you think the fish are. When you feel a bite, quickly pull back on the rod to set the hook and reel in your catch!

There are a few different ways to put a fishing plugin, but the most common way is to thread it onto the line. To do this, hold the plug in one hand and the line in the other. Then, use your thumb and first finger to pinch the plug and line together about 18 inches from the end of the line.

Next, twist the plug clockwise with your fingers while you hold tension on the line with your thumb and first finger. As you twist, the plug will wind its way up the line. When it gets close to where you are holding on to it, let go of both and grab it with your fingers. Then, reattach your lure or bait and cast out!

The easiest way to put a fishing plug in is to use a plug follower. A plug follower is a specially designed tool that helps you insert the plug into the lure’s housing without damaging either the plug or the housing.

If you don’t have a plug follower, you can also use needle-nose pliers. Simply grip the fishing plug firmly and insert it into the lure’s housing as far as it will go. Then use the pliers to gently twist and turn the plug until it’s fully seated in the housing.

It depends on the type of fishing plug. If it is a floating fishing plug, you would insert the plug into the opening at the top of the bait. If it is a diving plug, you would insert the plug into the opening at the bottom of the bait.

There are a few different ways to put a fishing plug in, but the most common way is to hold the plug in your left hand with the pointy end pointing down and use your right hand to twist the wire around the middle of the plug.

Then, use your right hand to hold onto the wire and pull it tight. Next, take your left hand and put it over top of the wire, and twist it in the opposite direction. This will help keep the wire from coming loose.

Finally, use your right hand to pinch the bottom of the plug and push it into place in the hole of your fishing lure.

It depends on the type of plug. For a hard body plug, you would pierce the eyelet of the plug with the point of your hook and then thread the hook through the hole.

For a soft body plug, you would pinch it in half just behind the head and insert your hook into one end, then re-join the halves around the hook.

There’s also a variety of specialty plugs that can be fished using different methods, so it’s best to consult your local tackle shop for specific instructions.
