Timing Is Important For Fishing
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So the biggest question of all is "When is the best time to fish?" For most people the answer should be anytime is the best time.

Of course as fisher people we want to fish as much as possible. In fact many of us never really care if one time is better than another. The fact of the matter though is there really are better times then others when it comes to fishing.

As fisher people who love to catch it really only makes sense that we start to understand the times that are better for finding the fish that are becoming more active. Another very important thing to know is how things are affected when the fish become more active.

The biggest no brainer that happens when fish become more active is they begin to bite our hooks much more. This just makes things more attractive when it comes to fishing. So it only makes sense that we want to take advantage of the times that fish are most active.

The fact of the matter is in life these days it seems we are so busy with jobs, families and everything else that time really has become a lot more valuable then even money in this day and age. So now we really need to figure out when the fish are going to be most active so we can get the best use of our time in a day and age when every second counts.

The first thing we need to learn and pay attention to is what the moon is doing. We all know that the moon goes through several phases in a month but the question is do we know which of the phases will benefit the fishing the most.

A prime example is in most cases a day before and a day after a full moon the fish tend to be most active so this would definatly constitute a good time to be fishing.

The next most important thing to take into consideration for fishing is the weather that surrounds us. We have all heard of different fronts moving in but did you know some of these fronts are a great time to get the hook in the water?

The warm front is usually the one we are talking about that is associated with good fishing. We want to be fishing after one of these fronts move through. What would even be better is being on the water after one of these fronts and in and around a full moon. Chances are you wont keep the fish off the hook. Bottom line is we need to keep on fishing

At the end of the day its all about catching a fish doing your homework, taking little pointers like the ones in this article and using them. We all know every day is a great day for fishing but if we can take some pointers and use them to our advantage that will make us just that much happier and better fisher people.

Yeh, the moon governs the best time to catch fish and catch plenty. Like when I was able to be in Lake Maultry (Santee Cooper) before and after a full moon. We used live bait and cautght all blue cats ranging from 10-30lbs., 15-18 cats a day within 4-5 hours time. And it was just my Mother and I. She had to quit from her hands hurting catching so many fish. And my gloves were wore out from landing those blue cats.
