Fishing is part science and part art. The goal is to get the biggest fish to strike what it thinks is food. The wind, available light, water clarity, currents, temperature, moon phase and season can alter not only if the fish are eager to strike but also what they will strike.
A season as narrow as a few days in length for a food source can alter what type of lure the target fish are striking. A certain insect food source may be the preferred food for a few days while it is in abundance. Read the rest of this entry »

Your tackle box probably contains all kinds of equipment, from a stringer to bobbers to that weird little lure you bought on vacation that one time that isn’t really good for anything. Perhaps the most important thing you can put in your tackle box, though, is some extra fishing line.

Some people make a day of fishing. Real fishermen make a week of it.
To truly get a fishing experience like no other, you must fully immerse yourself in the natural world. Finding a camping resort and staking your claim and buying the right gear is all well and good, but you also need to make sure everything is squared away at the home before you disembark. You want your mind focused on fishing and surviving a week in the wild and you can’t very well do that if you’re stuck worrying about the safety of your home.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Let the neighbors know. You will need someone to grab your mail and newspaper for you while you are away. The postal service can also be contacted to withhold delivery to your home until the day of your return.
2. Secure the home. Obviously lock the doors and the windows. If you don’t have a security system, you can usually find some pretty good stuff on sites like www.homessecurity.com. Not saying a home security system would guarantee your home’s safety, but it would certainly help.
3. Don’t leave notes or keys. If you have plants or a pet that you need someone to come over and look after, just give them a spare key. Don’t go leaving one out somewhere or posting a note on the door.

Usually ever state and even different cities might have different regulations on the amount of fish you can catch, the type of fish, and the weight of the fish. These guidelines are in place for a reason, and that is to keep people from overfishing, but also to keep the fish alive long enough to produce more. The worst thing that a person can do when fishing is to overfish and not use the fish, which is another reason why some strict stipulations are in place. Didn’t catch that? This explains it.
No matter where you live you need to always be sure to get a license to fish if it is required before fishing, but also be sure that you find all of the legal things involving fishing. You must know what types of line, rods, and hooks that you are allowed to use, and also when and where you can fish. This is for your safety as well as the safety of the fish, but also because there are times when certain fish are at a higher risk of being fished out. When you check to see the amount of fish you can catch at the local wildlife department, you are doing the right thing.
