How To Get Beter Fishing Results - 8 Tips

If you want to do some serious fishing and get results like everything else in life there is the right way and the "I'm not very lucky" way.

Here are 8 tips to send you on your lucky way.

Do Some Reading

Read a decent book to help get you started on the right foot.There are plenty of good books out there and just by spending a few hour reading one about the type of fishing you are interested in will probably save you hundreds of dollars. So often people just rush in and buy what they think they need only to be disappointed when the end result does not meet with their expectations. Often they give up, never knowing what they are missing out on.

Free Advice

Talk to other fishermen or women and hear what they have to say about the local conditions, the fish they are currently catching and also how the weather affects their results. Fishermen love to talk about their experiences and because they love to share, do give great advice. If they can show you their catch and it is a great one, then you should listen to their free advice.

Always Be Ready

When you set off for your day's outing be prepared. Make sure you have your tackle sorted because imagine after a long drive you arrive at this great fishing hole only to discover you have left your fishing reel behind. Try to make sure that your tackle box is well stocked and ready to go fishing at short notice.

Study Your Surroundings

Paying close attention and studying your enviroment will definately help you catch more fish. If the fish are big use bigger bait or lures. Smaller fish will tend to leave your bigger lure or bait alone letting you concentrate on landing the big one.

By studing the water you may discover the hideout from where the big bass are catching their prey. If it is trout you are after look out for fast moving water or eddies.

There are many other things to look out for and the more you fish and gain expeience, the more successful you will become. The beauty about fishing is that you are dealing with nature and therefore will never know it all. Every time you go fishing you will learn something new.

Fishing Etiquette

Stealth is the name of the game. You have to be as quiet as you possibly can and do everything in slow lazy movements. It's a known fact that fish are spooked very easily by loud sounds and sudden agitation. Disturbing the fish and other fishermen nearby you by talking loudly and the noisy clattering of tackle is not only bad manners but also poor fishing etiquette. Not cool. Like all other sports their are unspoken rules to follow that will enhance everyones fishing experience.

Weather Forecast

Before you leave get an update on the weather forecast for your fishing area and then dress accordingly. If you are dressed in board shorts and tee shirt and the weather suddenly turns foul, you then will spend most of your time trying to look for shelter to keep warm and not much fishing will be done. No one knows when or where the next fish will strike so you have to be ready otherwise it's bye, bye fish.

Baits

Whether you are using artificial or live bait try to use something similar to what the fish you are stalking are feeding on. By trying to imitate the actions of the bait fish your prey is feeding on with your lure, you will be more successful. Your fishing results will tally to zero if the fish are feeding on the surface and your bait is lying on the bottom of the sream.

Relax

8) When you are relaxed and enjoying your time on the water you will become more in tune with your surroundings. Being mentaly aware of what's happening around you will help you to stay on top of your game, which will naturally mean more fish in the cooler.

Practice, Practice

So to get the results you are hoping for, practice your knots,learn about plugs and flies, keep your tackle in great shape and study the fish you are hunting. Tight lines.
