The first tip in simple fishing is making sure the rig is just perfect. There are two reasons making sure that the rig is just perfect. There are many unique ways of tying a knot and that all depends on what you’re fishing for. Here are a few knots and what they’re used for. The first one is a Turle Knot which is a amazing fixed knot for fly fishing and a Uni Knot is a loop left open which makes streamers and nymphs appear realistic.
Second tip is making sure that your lure is swimming correctly. You need to be sure that your bait is naturally moving through the water and mimicking fish movements and you do this with your rod tip and reel rate. When you pull on your rod tip and reel down to gather slack but making sure to keep in contact with your lure. Some people think they will catch something if they just cast and reel as quickly as they can but if you do your lure won’t look like a natural fish from the water. Just make certain that you swim your lure as the fishing place dictates and you will have a better chance of grabbing that monster fish or just catching something period.
Third suggestion is changing depths. Some people that fish the top of the water thinks it’s fun but when there are no fish at the surface it will not be as fun as you won’t be catching anything. If you are going to be fishing the top of the water, you want to be sure that you are using a jig, spoon or a metal-lipped jerk bait to better your odds of catching something. There are going to be times where you’ll need to add or subtract weight when bait fishing or visit a sink tip or sinking line when you are fly fishing. Just remember if you are having any high water action you may need to go deeper to find where the fish are.
Last tip is changing location. If you’ve been sitting in exactly the same spot for a while and have shifted different lures and baits and there’s nothing baiting, you want to move around to where the fish are in. But before deciding to leave the location you’re at make certain you have covered all the water around you. Make sure to throw a couple of cast to your left, to your right, facing the boat and at the back of the boat. You never know that the fish could be everywhere and it’s simple to move the ship to where the fish are.
With these few tips you will be able to catch that monster fish or a heap of pan fish that summer and possible into the winter, that is if you think you have the summer fishing down to give ice fishing a try. Good luck fishing this summer.
