Well I am back with my fourth article and it is exciting to see how many people are interested in the fun of fishing. These articles are meant for everyone. Some of the more experienced anglers probably know a lot about what I am talking about already but I think back to when I knew nothing about fishing. I wish there would have been something like that. Eventually this will be an eBook so take advantage of it while you can. I have decided to change it up a bit and submit random tips. I hope you enjoy
1. A Sure Fire Way To Find Fish
Birds are a great way to find the good fishing spots. In the winter time on the ice you will find the sea gulls and crows gathering at spots where other fishermen have left bait or some of the small fish they caught. During the summer on open water you’re going to want to watch for loons and other fish eating ducks. They are most likely diving for minnows but find the minnows and eventually the bigger fish will be there to feed.
2. Yes Fussy Crappies Can Be Caught
In the spring time you can usually find the crappies in shallow water under bushes or protected by bank cover. At this point they are preparing to spawn. At this time of the year there not too interested in feeding and especially do shy away from baits and lures. You can however coax in some of the bigger ones by presenting them bait that is as natural as possible. Cast a small minnow with no sinker. By doing this the actions of the minnow will be just natural enough to get those off season crappies biting.
3. A Worm And Bobber
When you’re using a worm below your bobber you don’t want to hook it in the head because you are going to miss your strikes. And the worst thing is those darn fish will steal your bait. You want to hook the worm twice in the middle of the body. This way the bait looks more natural and when a fish bites it is more likely to suck in the worm.
4. Walleye And Busy Lakes
So many of our lakes have become so commercialized with weekend warriors. They are populated with jet boats, jet skis, and all sorts of commotion but don’t worry the big walleye can still be caught. I would suggest getting to the lake when it’s still dark. The walleye will be hungry. You’re only going to get a few hours of frenzied fishing but it will be worth it because once the boaters get out there the walleye will make a quick dash to deeper water and their feeding will be done for the day.
5. Careful When You Are Tube Fishing
You have to always be aware of your surroundings when you fishing in a float tube. The wind can make things miserable for you. Obviously you are using your hands for fishing so your feet are going to have to do the work. I would suggest tube fishing on smaller dug outs and ponds. If it gets too windy get out because once it takes over it could be a long tiring way back for you.
This will be the end of my fourth edition of my series on fishing. Keep reading my articles as they will get more informative and detailed as time goes on.
