|Fishing Tips for Beginners
There are many kinds of fishing equipments in stores, numerous
fishing methods in books, and fishing advices online. To make it
all simple, here are the basic things you need to know for your
first time fishing adventure.
1) How to fish with bait
* Tackle. To plunk the bait, you should purchase lead weights.
The weight of the lead would vary depending on the current of
the environment. Anglers commonly use and recommend bank sinkers
with a number-two hook.
To avoid sinkers to slide, you would need a swivel to act as a
stop. To protect the knot, you could use plastic beads between
the swivel and weight. Using two appropriate swivels could allow
you to rig the sliding sinkers.
* Bait. The commonly used bait for all kinds of fishes is worms.
Another popular bait is chicken liver. Remember to buy fresh
bait and keep them cold to avoid them from getting soft and
allowing the bait to stay within your hooks.
Some of the commonly used baits are cut-baits which include skin
from fried chicken, fish entrails, grasshoppers, salmon eggs,
shrimps and crayfish tails.

and raising the tip of the rod for one to two feet. Allowing the
bait to walk with the current, you should free the back reel or
spool. Repeat the steps when the lure settles down on the
bottom. Back bouncing is effective in deeper water like fishing
in a boat.
* Drift-fishing - It is a simple method wherein you cast
upstream or downstream. This may vary depending on the current's
amount. You should count the appropriate depth and start reeling.
3) How to fish from a boat - It is important to determine in
which location you would perform your fishing. Deeper water
needs heavier jigheads compared when fishing on shore.
* With heavy weight which keeps your bait near the bottom of the
water and the line straight down from your boat, you are able to
drift the boat along with any current. A good technique of
fishing on boats is trolling slowly with a fishing device called
Fishing is easy as long as you're enjoying the trip. Bring some
of your family and friends along and make your first time
fishing a memorable one.
