Of all the fishing methods, fishing with a slingshot is one of the most exciting and sustainable. A slingshot, catapult, or peashooter is a small hand-powered portable weapon that shoots small projectiles such as ammo balls, and is less than two feet long arrows. The classic form of a DIY fishing slingshot consists of a Y-shaped frame, two elastic rubber strips attached from the two upper ends, and a small pocket. When using it, one hand grips the frame while the other holds the pocket with a projectile in it. The second hand also reverse draws the rubber strip to energize it and direct the projectile in the right direction.
How do you fish with a slingshot?
Slingshot fish hunting uses either fishing arrows or ammo balls. Arrow slingshots are longer and equipped with a guide rail. To use them, place an arrow on this rail and slide the nock into the rubber band's pocket. Using a dominant hand, draw the rubber band back to your body while pinching the arrow with your thumb and index finger. Aim at the target and release the arrow. The arrow flies at over 100 mph, incapacitating the fish upon contact.
An ammo ball fish-hunting slingshot works similarly to an arrow. But in this case, there is no guide rail. When fishing with a slingshot in murky waters, bring fish closer to the surface using baits. This method is known as bait slingshot fishing.
