Are You Fishing Or Catching?

A lot of people that I have met, one of the first things that they say when talking about fishing is "I love to fish, but I never catch anything or I don't catch very much". If I have heard that once I have heard that a thousand times. I always take the time to give someone a few tips to make sure the next time they go fishing they have a much better chance to catch a much better quality and quantity of fish. Helping people no matter how is "Good Karma".

Two of the primary reasons people don't excel fishing is 1. They don't rig properly to catch quality fish. The majority of people that aren't catching quality fish in any quantity and quality are using some type of store bought rig without knowing anything about proper rigs for the species they want to catch. 2. They don't use the correct bait for the species of fish they want to catch. Too many people buy frozen bait to cut cost. Unfortunately the frozen bait and incorrect "store bought rig" will only attract undesirable species such as Catfish, especially in saltwater. Using live bait, whether it is baitfish or shrimp and tying your own rigs with the correct leader, knots, and hooks will generally always guarantee a much more productive day on the water.

Another very important aspect to productive fishing is to check the tides, solunar periods, moon phase, farmers almanac, and the local fishing reports. I know this sounds like a lot of work, but pre-planning pays big dividends. You definitely want to fish when the water is moving during a good moving tide. Even in fresh water the water is moving if there is a breeze that will push bait to one bank or another.This is where the bait will be, which in turn causes the predators to show up in these areas. A great analogy would be the way humans flock to a Bar B Que restaurant just because we smell the smoke. Once you start analyzing and understanding all of these things it will definitely contribute to making you a more successful and productive fisherman.

The last part of the puzzle is to FISH WHERE THE FISH ARE! If you are fishing an area and you aren't getting any bites then move. Don't waste your time in a non-productive area. Hopefully this short tutorial will help the majority of you to improve your fishing prowess.

My passion for fishing has carried me from Florida to Alaska and many places in between. If it’s wet & something alive swims in it, I will fish for it. Just remember "Fishing isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more important than that!" Come along with me, The MCB (Master Caster Blaster) for the best fishing adventures in this hemisphere. Hold on while we "Set The Water On Fire."
