Pro Tips

  • When fishing rivers and streams, always fish with the current. This provides a natural presentation.
  • Fish relate to cover. This includes weed edges, stumps, fallen trees, boat docks, and rocks. Find these structures and fish will be nearby.
  • Periodically, check the point on your hook. Wood, rocks, and even many caught fish will dull hooks. If hook is not sharp, either replace or re-sharpen.
  • Periodically, check the end of your line at the hook by running the line through your thumb and forefinger. If line feels nicked or frayed, cut above the abrasions and retie. This will prevent unexpected break-offs.
  • Live bait is always a good choice, especially when fish are finicky. Live bait will generally outfish artificial bait.
  • To keep live bait at its liveliest, try to keep the bait as cold as possible. Bring a cooler for Nightcrawlers, Leeches, and Minnows.
  • Always try to fish with the lightest pound test line the situation will allow as you will find that this will result in more strikes.
  • When bottom fishing, use the lightest weight possible. This will prevent fish from feeling resistance.
  • When you have a strike, or a fish is running, reel in slack line, then set the hook. This will provide a positive hook set resulting in more landed fish.
  • If fish swallow hook, cut the line very close to the eyelet. This will increase the chance of survival allowing the fish to grow into a future lunker.
