This is going to be the seventh article and it’s great to see how many people are interested in the fun of fishing. These articles are meant to have tips that everyone can use. Most of the seasoned anglers might even find a helpful tip or two in these articles. Eventually I will turn this into an eBook so go ahead and take advantage of it now. Make sure you tell your friends and families about the fishing tips articles because all I ask in return is that you go out and enjoy the fine fun of fishing.
1. Fishing With Alka-Seltzer
I learnt this trick by being snoopy and listening in on a couple of fishermen that were catching fish next to me while I was being shut out. When the fishing is slow and they won’t even take a slow moving jig then you want to change things up a little. In the end of a tube jig you want to put a couple pieces of Alka-Seltzer and then shove a little cotton against the tablets. When the water soaks through the cotton the hook will begin to fizz with almost assuredly will attract fish and even more fish strikes on days that strikes seem to be impossible to get.
2. Find The Trout
This is a quick way to find pools of fish for the fly fisherman. Gather up a couple of the local bugs around the shores of your favorite fishing spot. Once you have the bugs you want to toss them in and around the pools to see if the fish surface and feed on them. Once you have established where the fish are you can then cast your fly into that certain pool.
3. Use More Bait
Many times while you’re fishing the catch might be great but unfortunately you keep catching small fish. What you might want to do in this case is use bigger amounts of bait. Instead of one minnow you might want to use two. Remember that in most cases bigger fish want bigger baits.
4. Gloves For Fishing
Catching some larger fish like pike and Muskie can prove to be quite dangerous when it comes to removing the hook. What you want to do is keep a good pair of buckskin gloves in your tackle box just for cases like this. Wear the gloves while getting the hook out of a large fish like this. Chances are the gloves will prevent the hook penetrating you skin incase the fish begin flopping.
5. Pork Rinds Can Be Bulky
If you have to do a lot of walking then you want to minimize the amount of tackle you take with you. One trick to get out of hauling the big bulky pork rind jars is to put some pork rinds in a sealable plastic baggie that can be carried in your vest or a small tackle box.
This is the end of my seventh edition on my series on fishing tips. I hope so far everyone is finding useful tips that they can use or save for a later day.
Just remember a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.
