<ol><li> 1. Angling Is Basic When You Follow These Wonderful Pointer! Most individuals love to go http://www.fieldandstream.com/fishing out to the lake in their excess time to get in some fishing. While fishing is a fun way to spend some free time in the sun, a little bit of research can go a long way when it comes to actually catching fish. Read on to learn some new ways to improve your technique and have your next fishing outing be the most successful yet. Leave a caught fish in the water as long as possible. If you have caught a fish but are not yet finished fishing for the day, then it is important to leave him in the water. You can tie him to your boat and trawl him behind you until you finish for the day. This helps to keep the fish fresh longer for later on. Maintaining your boat battery properly ensures you will be ready to take off on a fishing excursion as soon as the weather breaks. It is best to just remove the battery completely and store it in your garage or basement during the off-season. Avoid placing it directly on concrete, as the cold temperature could reduce the battery's lifespan. When using live bait to fish with, be sure that you bring a variety of bait. Certain fish prefer one kind of bait, while another fish may prefer another. You may want to visit a bait shop that offers a number of different bait prior to going on your fishing adventure. Just as in other sports, it is vital to have the proper gear. There are many different types of fishing and each one requires different equipment. If you go fly fishing with a normal rod, you will quickly find yourself put into a position where it is very difficult to fish correctly. Look at the birds when you fish. If the birds are diving in a particular location, there is a good chance that there are fish located there. Birds dive to eat, and they enjoy eating fish more than anything else in the water. Keep an eye out and you just might gain from it in your fishing efforts. Fishing with younger children can be a great way to bring them into the wild, but always put safety first. There should never be more small children than adults, and they should always use a life jacket when near the water. It is amazing how quickly children are able to throw themselves into water! Fishing is a popular sport and learning how to fish takes practice. In the summer, try fishing closer to the banks around passes, piers and jetties. Try fishing in coves and marinas. Ask the local bait store what other anglers are purchasing for bait. This information may be a great clue as to what fish are biting. Pay attention to the wind while you're fishing. The wind can drive fish to the bottom or one end of the lake. Cast against the wind so that your line will follow the current. In very strong winds, fish tend to congregate at the deepest parts of the water where they are impossible to catch. Location is everything when you are fishing. Make sure you know when you are fishing somewhere that not only are there fish there, but that you are ready with the right techniques, and equipment for that specific location. Veteran fishermen are good people to talk to as well for finding great locations to go fishing. When you fish from a shore or bank, it is very important to select a good spot that offers plenty of space for casting. Pick your spot with an awareness of the total size of your party and the casting styles you are going to employ. An enclosed fishing spot can lead to irritating hassles like tangled </li><li> 2. lines. If you do not plan on eating the fish, simply release the fish after you catch it. This is when you unhook the fish you have caught very carefully and gently put them back in the water. This will allow the fish population to grow larger, resulting in more fishing opportunities in the future. Knowing where to fish is very important if you want to successfully catch a lot of fish. There are certain times of the day and certain spots which are preferable to catching fish. If you aren't in the right spot, you could be waiting endlessly for hours and not catch a single fish. If you are looking for a good catfish bait with a more subtle smell than the classic stink bait, then consider casting out with hot dogs. Work just a chunk over your hook, cast it lightly then let it sink to the bottom and sit until you get a bite. Dress in layers. Many good fishing trips can last all day long, and even on shorter trips, the temperature can change drastically. By wearing many light layers of clothing, you will give yourself plenty of options. With some minor adjustments, you can make yourself comfortable, no matter what the current temperature is. Dress in layers.

Fisherman who use nets to land fish, should always net their fish head first. If you attempt to net your fish tail-first, you increase your chances of losing it to a second run or a snapped line. To keep your natural scent from throwing fish off your bait, buy a scented lure spray. Instead of using it on your lures, spray some on your hands. This will keep human smells like soap or tobacco from rubbing off on your bait when you handle it and will also make your lures more enticing. </li><li> 3.
