Fishing Tips & Secrets Are spinnerbaits really worth the money you pay for them? We have to say YES!

Here's why, this one will throw you for a loop. Just the other day I was out with a buddy doing, what else, fishing. He had a problem with his line, (it had crossed itself while he was re-stringing his reel the night before) and after we got the line straightened out, he tried to use it anyway. You know, trying to conserve and recycle. It wasn't working out for him. That's not it.

So he decided to remove the twisted and mangled section of his line. My buddy cut the line which left about an eight foot section. He was straight-linin' a chunk o' night crawler. (A snelled bait-holder hook, a split-shot sinker and half a night crawler) He tied the end of the line to the lanyard on the deck we were fishing from and threw the other end in the water. He says "Might as well try to catch a fish while I'm re-string. You never know." Now that's efficiency.

That's when I laughed and re-focused my attention on my fishing. As you might have guessed already, when he was finished re-stringing his rod & reel, he decided to pull his line up and yep, you guessed correctly, he had a bluegill hooked on the other end.

Trust me. I would never have been able to make that up.
Lately I've been researching different methods of using what I have been using in the past. (Mix this with that and that with this) I was showing my buddy different types of combinations I had come across and he just shook his head and laughed. He's and old fashioned kind of fisherman. That's not to say he won't try something new and continue to use it, if it works.
It just blew my mind later when I got to thinking about it. Guys (And girls) buy all this expensive fish finding equipment; life like lures and top of the line bass boats and my fishing buddy ties a line, a hook and a worm to the dock, like ol' Huck Finn and catches him a fish. Go figure.

Just goes to show you, the basics always work.

We happened to be fishing one of the smallest ponds I have ever fished. It's privately owned and man-made. My buddy keeps telling me of giant bluegill and crappie, but I have yet to see these elusive creatures. It's not that I don't believe him; I just haven't seen any caught yet.

Bass Fishing Secrets. Catch more and bigger bass immediately. We Guarantee it.

The water was a cloudy type of muddy, the weather was 75 and sunny and it was mid May in Indiana. It was beautiful day for fishing. At about high noon, I had a 7-incher dart out from under the tree limbs next to the dock and hit the Berkley Gulp fog that I decided to throw on for the first time after trying about six different lures.

I can now say that frogs work in catching largemouth bass. I can't say if it was just that pond yet or not. I recently fished at Yellowwood Lake near Bloomington, IN and got a hit with it, but when I got it to the dock, it spit it out.
At the little pond, I lost just as many fish as I caught, so who's to say?

Around two or three in the afternoon, I got in a row boat, (Which wasn't fun when the wind picked up) and my buddy got in a paddle pontoon, that's when we started to catch largemouth left and right. Literally. I don't know if it was the change in lures. (We were changing lures about every ten casts or so from the dock) When we found something that worked, we stuck with it for the rest of the day.

Fishing Tips & Secrets It is not good practice when fishing for trout to fish directly upstream so the flies, line, and leader will float directly over fish. The fisherman should make the cast from one side of the stream so the fly will only float over the fish.

Being that the water was muddy and it was a sunny day, we thought the good ol' "Chartreuse Spinner' would be the ticket however, a dark green frog and a blood red worm ended up being the "meal ticket". Dark colors work well in muddy water, especially since there was full sun.

Both were Berkley Gulp brand soft bait. This bait is manufactured with Berkley's 400x emitting sent. This bait has continued to work well since its introduction a couple of years ago. I can't say if all the pros are using it, but that's what I hear.

I don't mean to sound like a Berkley commercial however, since Bass smell and taste simultaneously they're Gulp brand baits work very well.

Back to the story, my fishing buddy was using the 7 inch, curly tail, blood red worm. He likes to use one snelled bait holder hook, weightless. I told you he was kind of old fashioned.

What you do is grab a number one snelled bait-holder hook and run it through the nose, keep running the hook through the center of the worm until you get to the eyelet end of the hook. Then let the barbed end protrude though the side and straighten ‘er out, attach the leader to the line with a barrel swivel and that's it.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Mr.Goop "Fish Formula", offers a Garlic and Anise scent the bass seem to like very much.

You can let it drop to the bottom, which takes a while. Then very slowly work it along the bottom. Or you can start reeling as soon as it hits the water and then use a stop and go method. It depends on how the fish are feeling.

I was using the dark green frog, which is very life-like. I rigged it weightless on a 2/0 offset hook. Sort of like a Carolina or Texas rig without the bullet sinker. Oh yes and with a barrel swivel between the leader and the line. The barrel swivel keeps your line from getting twisted when the bait swims through the water.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Some fishing lodges advertise a certain amount for a few days by the lake. It is advisable to ask if there are any hidden charges.

I just threw it into the shaded areas beneath over hanging trees. Sometimes I let it hit the bank and then "jump it" into the water, right into the nest and swim it like a frog would, every once in a while letting it sink.

Largemouth bass like to make their nests in the shallows just off channels or drop-offs. This pond has two coves that are essentially channels. I kept my eye out for really dark or really light spots under trees or next to logs and near the drop-off into the channel.

Bass Fishing System.

In fishing, trout are one of the favorite "fishing friends" of most anglers. These crafty fish are abundant anywhere. The native habitat of these crafty fish depends on the type of trout.

For brook trout, the native habitat includes the territory from Labrador westward to the Saskatchewan, while the rainbow trout is a native of the Pacific slope from Alaska to California.

On the other hand, brown trout has found its way into the waters of every state in the United States except Florida, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas. It has been reported in the waters of some of these states, but according to conservation officials, no authentic reports have been received. It is also found in many parts of Canada.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Do you know that seasonal patterns has a direct relationship with whether it is bass fishing season or not.

In trout fishing, there are some factors that need to be considered in order to have a successful catch.

1. For trout fishing, the leader should not be greased. It will not sink far enough to cause any difficulty when picking the line and lure from the water, but if it is allowed to float; it will cast a shadow on the bottom of the stream which may scare the trout.

2. The trout is one of the fishes that are usually secured through the use of the dry fly. For trout, the current as well as the pools should be fished. It may sometimes be a bit difficult to keep the fly from sinking or dragging because of the various conditions of the current, but this is a matter that the angler will have to figure out for himself.

3. It is not good practice when fishing for trout to fish directly upstream so the flies, line, and leader will float directly over fish. The fisherman should make the cast from one side of the stream so the fly will only float over the fish.

4. It is important to make the first cast the best. A feeding trout will usually strike the first lure presented if it is cast so that it will float over his private domain. The angler should never fail to fish the lower end of the pool first even if the trout are rising in the middle or upper end.

Fishing Tips & Secrets For trout fishing, the leader should not be greased. It will not sink far enough to cause any difficulty when picking the line and lure from the water, but if it is allowed to float; it will cast a shadow on the bottom of the stream which may scare the trout.

5. Trout are sometimes very moody or selective and will try the patience of any angler; hence, possibly a fly with less hackle will do the trick or it may be necessary to use a spent-wing fly or a fan wing.

Indeed, catching trout fishes can be lots of fun. The anglers just have to remember these tips in order to have a happy catch.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Are spinnerbaits really worth the money you pay for them? We have to say YES!

There are a few basic methods that are effective in catching catfish. Bear in mind that specific methods are applicable to specific kinds of waters. That is because techniques and baiting mixtures are formulated for specific targets.

The following methods are simple, yet proven successful when used:

1) Rigging method – Depending on the bait used, loop the bait holder or the treble hook from a line to a preferred distance to the end. Bait movement is not suggested; therefore, a weight must be used to allow the rig to be still. A good distance shall be about 18" to 24."

Same as the first method, using the Slipweight to make the bait stable is also effective. The weight does not matter as long as it can slide in the line. The fish will not feel any weight and it will be late until they realize that the bait is fake.

Multibait technique allows multiple catches at once. Simply place three-way swivel along the line. As it draws more strikes it makes a great choice for catching more catfish at the same time.

2) Bait – Experts opt for chicken livers or medium sized shrimp from groceries. The shrimp's tail and skin must be removed and body should be big enough to slide up in a number 6 hook. This is simpler than the chicken which necessitates the use of pantyhose. A diameter of a quarter is wrapped in a piece of pantyhose leaving a tag end then attach it through the treble hook. Blood worms, minnows, catfish paste, night crawlers, snails, living or dead small fish, and dough baits are also good choices of baits. Remember that the best baits are always those that nature produced.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Hiring a fishing guide might be a great idea if you're new to the area, even if you're an expert fishermen yourself. You can hire a guide for your first day and he can show you where the fish are biting at that particular time, then you can strike it out on your own for the rest of vacation.

3) Chumming – Fishermen catch more catfish with this method. This is simply throwing balls of mixtures of natural recipes in the fishing area. This attracts more catfish; the trick is that the mixture should be right enough for the catfish to feed heavily. The hook that will be used to fish normally must have the same recipe for the bait. Adding a good smelling flavor into the pasty mixture attracts catfish more.

Carp Fishing Secrets. The carp angler's bible. Over 270 pages of carp fishing advice from the home of carp fishing.

4) Tackling – Although the technique involved in this method is by far effective, it's still the bait that attracts and brings the catfish in. As simple as it is, the tackle should be about 6 feet long with a spinning real. Choose heavier lines to allow more battle between the fisherman and the catfish. It doesn't necessarily have to be expensive. The experience you get from a cheaper tackle is no different from an expensive one.

Make sure the grip is secure hooks are removed by pliers after catching the fish. Avoid being stuck with the fins as some are poisonous. Just simply sliding the hand up to its belly from tail, placing the fingers behind one side and thumb behind the other can remove the catfish from the hook without any harm. Happy catfishing and good luck!

Fishing Tips & Secrets Do you know that seasonal patterns has a direct relationship with whether it is bass fishing season or not.

Basically, fly fishing is not only one of the fastest growing sports; it is one of the foremost forms of conserving natural resources as well as providing aquatic recreation.

How To Make Fishing Lures.

Fly fishing is, very simple when three things are right: you must have a suitable rod; you must get a line to match it; and you must learn correct casting technique.

For people who wish to know some tips on fly fishing, here is a list of some pointers that could help anglers harness their fly fishing skills:

1. Material of the rod

When starting out, it is always best to start with a cheap option. Once your fishing improves and you are enjoying it,
you can then progress onto more expensive options.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Dress for the occasion. For example if you're ice fishing, don't forget thermal underwear and insulated footgear.

2. Line

It is important to know that on any given rod, the fly fisherman should use the same size line for anything from small trout and bluegills up to the largest sea fish.

In choosing the line, anglers should get a C level, an HCH double-taper, or a GBF three-diameter. This choice is based on the fact that a high percentage of fly rods bought nowadays are hollow glass, and that a great majority of these works best with lines of those sizes, almost regardless of lengths or weights.

3. Learning to cast

In casting, it is important to get about 20 feet of line out front. Anglers should always remember to cast a straight line. Avoid jerky movements even if it is on a faster mode in order to do so.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Use a wire cross-locking snap when fishing crank plugs. It allows you to change lures quickly and enables the bait to vibrate more freely.

Boiled down, there should be no reason why you should not learn the fundamental principles just as easily as those who now enjoy fly fishing.

Probably, the best and surest way to learn to cast successfully is to spend a day on the stream with some fisherman who is a competent caster.

Lessons learned on the stream are the best tips you can acquire anywhere in your quest for learning fly fishing.

Most of all, enjoy your fly fishing!

How To Make Fishing Lures.

Since the water is slow, clear and shallow, the fish seem to be extra skittish. This means you need to practice extra caution to have any luck. If you can see the fish in a beaver pond, more than likely they can see you, too. All but the very small and gullible fish will retreat to safety. Avoid the overwhelming temptation to walk up to the pond to spot the fish.

Instead, keep a low profile and delicately cast to any rising fish or bulges you see in the water. Be sure to concentrate your efforts on the pond's inlet, the main stream channel, the deeper water at the dam itself and any other good holding water you may notice. Since beaver ponds offer such an abundance of food, the majority of trout will feed on the surface only when there is a large hatch in progress. Some of the smaller fish may feed on the stray bugs, but for the most part they will be eating nymphs under the surface of the water.

I like to stand just below the actual beaver dam and cast into the deep water behind it. It's easy to sneak up on the fish from here and you don't need much line to present your fly. This will usually yield a fish or two, but it is a tough place to fish (although there really aren't any easy places in a beaver pond). Most of the time, you will either snag your fly on a piece of wood or hook a fish that beelines to its shelter under the dam. Whatever the case, plan on losing lots of flies.

Fishing Tips & Secrets Some fishing lodges advertise a certain amount for a few days by the lake. It is advisable to ask if there are any hidden charges.

I will never forget the time I hooked a large native cutthroat trout in a small beaver pond in Colorado. Again, I approached the pond just under the dam and hooked it on my first cast, which is often the case in beaver ponds. After a rather lengthy battle, I finally got the fish within arm's reach when the unthinkable happened. The fish made one final run, but this time dove below the dam and tangled itself around large piece of wood. I tried my best to untangle the leader, but to no avail. I had to snap the tippet. With a long branch, I reached the line and pulled the fish up to the surface of the water.

Besides a sly approach, the key to successful fishing on beaver ponds is to give them a break. Unless it's a huge pond, don't plan on fishing more than 10 to 20 minutes before all the fish are spooked. Instead, catch a few trout, give it a break then come back. I usually fish a beaver pond pretty heavily when I first get there and then break for a half-hour or so. During this time, I usually have lunch, take a nap (ah, fishing!) or more likely fish my way up the creek until I hit another pond. If there are several beaver ponds in one area, as is often the case, some of the best fishing can be in the channels that connect them. Concentrate on these channels while you give the ponds a break.
