|Learning how to Fish
You have decided that you want to learn to fish. There are
several ways of learning, the hardest being trial and error. It
would be best to find an instructor for one-on-one lessons.
1. Buy seasickness medication
Nothing is worse than ruining your fishing because of
seasickness. Most seasickness medication e.g. Bonine would be
fine. Even seasoned fishermen are known to take some on rough
days. Take one before you go to sleep, another when you wake up
and a third one before you board.
2. Buy a reference book
A lot of good books are available at your bookstores and online.
The book should give you instructions as well as terms and
definitions. Some things you may not immediately understand but
you should know anyway. Learn how to tie different kinds of
knots. This knowledge will be invaluable for other purposes
throughout your life.
3. Go to a party
There are party boats that carry from fifteen to as many as
sixty anglers. The boat provides everything like bait, rod,
reel, sinkers and hooks. They assist you in fishing and take the
fish off the hook for you. Mates will spot you and will
generally stay close to assist you. Party boats generally will
cost you $25 - $70 a day, and the fish are yours to keep. The
party boat is a bargain for beginners.
4. Pick your pier
Assuming you have already acquired skills to operate a rod and
reel, you need to look for a fishing pier. Majority of coastal
cities have one public pier or pay-to-fish pier. You can rent
tackle and buy bait at the piers. If you're having trouble,
there are many pier anglers willing to help and give you tips.
5. Party or pier
You may want to do either step three or four or both at this
point. The best thing to do is to do both several times to
6. The reel deal
The conventional reel is probably what you're using up to this
point. The conventional reel is designed for a lot of wear and
tear. You may now want to consider other types and makes of
reels. Ideally you have met people and perhaps made a friend or
two who can assist you in selecting a reel. You can even ask a
tackle shop owner for tips.
You need to understand the mechanics of the reel and the other
equipment. Learning to cast, tie knots and bait are not that
complicated. Secondly, you need to learn where to fish.
Successful fishermen know where the fish are located. Fish move
from place to place and knowledgeable anglers understand these
patterns and are able to anticipate where the fish are located.
