This is going to be my eighth article on fishing tid bits. I am so far getting a great response to these articles. 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. Is Your Rod Jammed
Sometimes, especially at the beginning of a new season you go to pull your rod apart and it just won’t budge. You can forge it with something but then you stand the chance of breaking it. So this is what you should do. You will make the rod contract if you wrap ice around it where it joins or leave it outside in the cold and then simply pull it apart.
2. Right Depth Crank baits
You probably have a bunch of crank baits in your tackle box but do you know what depths they are used for. Crank baits are built to run at many different depths and once you throw the package out all will be forgot. You should buy a marker that’s water proof and mark the running depth on each crank bait. That way with a quick glance you can tie on the right hook and get fishing.
3. Perch Eyes For Bait
I have had great luck using perch eyes to catch more perch or walleye. When you catch a feed of perch you should keep all the eyes when you go to clean your fish. Don’t just throw them in the freezer because they will go all mushy. So what you want to do is put them in a little jar with salt water. This will keep them fresh until your next fishing trip.
4. Backlash Can Be Such A Mess
What you want to do to avoid backlash because it even affects the most seasoned anglers. You want to cast as far as you can a few times. Once you have done this then you can string out a couple more feet. At that point you can put on some masking tape to make sure your bird nests don’t appear more often then they need to.
5. Canoe Rod Holders
So many rods so often get broke in canoes because there just isn’t any good storage for rods in canoes. The usually slide to the center where they end up in danger of getting crushed or snapped. I fastened a piece of pipe under the seats of my canoe right along the edge on both sides. Now when traveling I store my rods in there and they are out of the way plus they are out of the way to get damaged.
This is the end of my eighth 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.
