Catching More Fish

Is not this what we would all, as anglers, like to do. Catch more fish? Of course it is, and catching more fish can be more simple and easy than you might have imagined. In this article I'm going to reveal come simple tips and techniques that will help any angler in their pursuit of catching more fish.

The first thing to keep in mind is that almost every species of fish is heavily influenced my two forces of Mother Nature, and understanding this (and using this information to your advantage) is integral to catching more fish. Remember anyone can go out and chuck some bait or a lure in the water, but this most certainly doesnt mean that they'll catch fish. If you want to catch more fish, paying attention to Mother Nature is a key.

When I refer to the phrase 'Mother Nature', I'm referring specifically to the weather and moon. These two natural forces play a huge role in the behavior and feeding activity of fish. For example, fishing is always better when the moon is in certain phases. Fishing is also better after a certain type of front passes through your fishing area. Were you aware of this? Well, now you are and as you gain knowledge about the weather, moon, and fishing you will catch more fish.

How am I so sure of this? Because I've personally been using the weather and moon to my advantage for more than 20 years, and know how effective it is. For example, whenever there is a new moon, I'm on the water fishing. Fish always bite more read during the three to four days surrounding a new moon. The bottom line is that if you want to catch more fish, learn how the weather & moon affect fish and begin using this information to your advantage.

Another great tip that will help you catch more fish is to always make sure that your bait and / or lures appear as realistic as possible. This is why, if you're a bait fisherman, gang hooks should always be employed. Gang hooks are the best way to present live bait (especially worms) in a natural manner. If you're a bait fisherman, lures such at the KickTail Minnow should be employed. These lures are as realistic as can be found anywhere . Catching more fish is a ton easier when your offers are realistic.

Keep these simple tips and techniques in mind (and use them) and catching more fish will become much easier. Many times the simplest things in life are the most effective and fishing is no different. Keep it simple, study your craft, and above all spend as much time on the water as you possibly can. Keep these things in mind and catching more fish will become a cake walk.

Fishing Safety Reminders

Fishing is a relaxing hobby and even more fun to do when done with members of the family and loved ones during a short vacation or even over the weekends. It may seem not a very physical sport for most people, but similar to any other outdoor activities, fishing still requires safety. Nobody should ever compromise safety.

Primarily, before going out fishing, make sure that your outfit is just right for the activity. The weather should always be put in to account because you can never tell if the sun is going to be too hot or just right all day long. A sunny day may turn cloudy or even rainy so, it's advisable to always bring an extra something along. If it's the rainy season, always bring anything that can protect you from getting chilled.

In terms of handling your fishing equipment, extra precaution should always be observed. There have been too many accidents that happened in casting a fishing line. Either the one who casts the line gets into trouble or he gets someone in trouble. Check who or what's behind you first before casting your line with confidence in the water. Do not be too sure that there's nothing behind you (ei power line or a tree).

In placing your fishing rod on the ground, still do it carefully. Be sure you do not let someone else step on it as it is going to cause an accident. Keep an eye to where you leave your fishing equipment. In the event of removing a hook from the fish (if it becomes difficult to remove), do not force it with your bare hands. Use a hook disgorger to remove it from the fish or cut the line with scissors. A hook left with the fish will eventually loosen out.

Do not ever go fishing without a buddy or anyone who is experienced enough in fishing. You need to make sure that you have someone looking after you during the whole time you're fishing because you never know when a help of another person is going to come in handy.

How To Install, Use and Interpret Your Fish Locator – Part 1

As you are probably aware, the device we are talking about is not a fish locator but, rather, a depth locator. Most fisherman use a fish locator but most fisherman does not use it properly and can not interpret what they are seeing on the screen.

Most bass boats utilize two fish locators: One mounted in the dash, typically a flasher unit, and another mounted on the trolling motor. The majority of us fishermen utilize the flasher when running new water or low water conditions on a known lake. If this sounds familiar, well you are missing out on a lot of information. I did not learn this trick until a few years ago. If you turn your flasher unit on while you are running to your favorite fishing hole, you may be in for a surprise. If you are comfortable setting the sensitivity on your unit, you can get a real time view of the bottom, find humps and submerged moss beds you did not know exhausted. If you have a high speed flasher unit and get the sensitivity adjusted right, you can also see what depth the major of the fish are located. This little trick has allowed me to find several humps I had not known implemented on Lake Ouachita and give me more possible places to fish.

TIP: If you find a new hump, you can, if you are financially challenged and can not afford a GPS Plotter, take a hand-held GPS unit and get the coordinates and record the coordinates on your lake map. This way you can take the hand-held unit and find the hump any time.

It all starts with proper installation of your unit (s). If you have an in-dash flasher unit, it was probably installed by the boat manufacturer or the boat dealer. That installation should be OK. If you bought a LCD unit to install on your trolling motor, that is the unit we will discuss.

Let us start with a quick check-up of your existing unit. If you have an in-dash unit installed, the first thing to check is the installation. Where is your transducer located? Is it in the bilge area and shooting through the hull? Is it mounted on the transom? Check the transducer to see if the mounting is still tight and your cable is still in good shape. No nicks, scrapes or rubbing on any metal which could fray or sever the wire over a period of time. Is the transducer still tightly glued to the floor of the boat for through hull installations? For a transducer on the outside of the boat on the transom, check the mount for loose screws, missing screws, is it perpendicular to the hull. It is very important to have the transducer perfectly straight up and down or your signals will not be accurate. The preference for this type of installation is a puck type transducer for through-hull units and a bullet transducer for transom mounts.

TIP: If the transducer mounted on the transom is a gimble type mount, after each trip the transducer to make sure it is pointed straight up and down. These type of mounts are designed to "kick up" if you hit or run something.

A puck style transducer is the most used for trolling motor applications. It has a slim size and is easily mounted with a large hose clamp. The advantage to this transducer is the small size puts the transducer behind the skag on the trolling motor that protecting it from contact with underwater objects. The most important thing in mounting this transducer is to make sure it is perpendicular to the centerline of the trolling motor body. Once you have the transducer mounted, it is simple to take some wire ties and attach the cable to the steering cable encasement into the boat. This prevails the transducer cable from being entangled in vegetation or ripped loose by limbs or stems. Try to mount your locator and cable hook-ups as far away from trolling motor battery wires or outboard engine wires as possible to minimize electronic / electrical interference with the locator. Some interference is inevitable but in a good setup it is minimized. In-line fuses will also minimize interference.

TIP: Remember to add the distance from the surface to the transducer to your locator readings to have accurate depth readings.

When you have installed your locators, the first thing you need to do is READ the instruction manual. This will familiarize you with the various features and buttons on the locator. Pay particular attention to the sensitivity, menu, auto, and zoom buttons. Learn how to adjust and turn these features on and off. Become familiar with the examples shown in the instruction manual. Once you have become familiar with the features and operation of your locator, it is time to try it out.

In Part 2 of this article, we will discuss the settings of the locator to properly interpret what you are seeing on the screen.
