Freshwater Fishing for Dummies

If you never have experienced the joy and excitement it is to take a big wriggling fish on the hook, you have a great opportunity to do it after reading this article. The fish is not as easily deluded as you might imagine. There are a high number of methods and techniques available to catch the fish in freshwater, but in this context the focus is on rod fishing from the shoreline. Another and easier method to grab the fish is from a boat , but that probably doesn't give you the same excitement and pleasure as to fish from the shoreline. Here is a small overview over fishing techniques when fishing from a boat: You can use a fish net in the water a few hours and take the net up with caught fish, or you can hang a spoon on the end of a line and hang it after a boat in speed. Another technique is jigging from a boat that is not moving, or from a hole in the ice on a frozen lake during winter. In these cases it is possible to use Fish finder to figure out where the fish is in the lake.

Methods

Even if you're going to fish with a rod from the shoreline there is a lot of methods to choose between.

  • Fly Fishing may practice in a lake or a river. Fly Fishing is difficult and need a lot of practice to master, but it will probably give you the most joy when you have learned the challenging technique, and knowledge of the variety of flies.
  • Worm Fishing can also be practiced in a lake or river. There are mainly 2 different techniques.
  1. Use a fish-line (thickness about 0.2 mm) attached to a long rod. Mount a small hook at the end of the line. Tread a mark on the hook and throw out in the water
  2. Use a rod with a Reel and mount a so-called Float, that floats on the water. Mount a 1.5 meter long line to the other end of the Float with a hook at the end of that line, and a hook with a worm attached. Throw the line out into the lake and sit down and just wait for the fish to bite.
  • Spoon Fishing. Use an ordinary Rod with a Reel and a Spoon attached to the end of the line. Throw out the line and Reel line in. Repeat that until the fish bite the spoon. Of course the fish don't bite on everything, it's not that stupid. The fish is usually very choosy in what it will nibble on. In daylight a 12 g. Silver spoon is excellent.

Technique

Your equipment quality, rod size and you throw technique determines how far you can throw. It's easy to learn the throw technique if someone shows you how do to it. Throw out the line and Reel in slowly, occasionally providing a jerk does the spoon behave like a little fish.

Weather

The weather has more impact to fishing on a lake than in a river. On a lake it's best if there's a bit windy.

At last, fishing is a science and some luck. This article merely scratches the surface of all to learn about this amazing activity.
