To somebody who doesn’t fish it looks pretty easy, you cast your hook into the water and then wait for a fish to bite. If you’re a serious fisherman then you know just how untrue that is. If you want to make your next fishing trip the best it can be then you need to know when to head out, what kind of bait to use and where the best spots are to find the big one.
Catching More Fish
Every fisherman wants to catch more fish, one of the ways you can do this is by “chumming”. You throw “chum” into the water to lure in fish. Chum is just food, you can use ground up bait but be careful not to use too much you want them hungry enough to still bite your hook. Next you want to make sure that you have a sharp hook and check it every once in a while to make sure it is holding up okay.
“Be quiet or you’ll scare the fish” is probably something you remember from childhood and going fishing with your dad, but there’s actual truth to it. Fish are particularly sensitive to noise so whisper and walk very softly when you are near the water. Make yourself familiar with the water and the local conditions before you bait your hook. The more time you spend in a fishing in a particular lake or stream will give you the chance to learn the fishes habits and where they can be found. That means more fish for you!
Fishing for Bass
Bass fishing and fly fishing are two totally different things and if bass fishing is your preference then you need to pay special attention to the lures that you use. You need a different lure for different times of the day and difference places in the water, this is what makes bass fishing so challenging. However if you are new to fishing bass fishing might be a better choice, they are easier to catch and reel in once you get the hang of it. Now back to the lures, there are different types of lures that work best under different circumstance. Here is an idea of what lure to use when.
Fishing can be a lot of fun and it’s a great way to spend time with your family outdoors and in the sunshine. You can also catch yourself some dinner you can cook around a campfire. Keep these tips in mind and make your next fishing trip the best it can be.
