Summer Fishing Tips

Fishing season is upon us! Let’s face it; fishing can be hard. But when you finally make the catch, it’s all worth it. Now the big question is, how do you catch more and bigger fish? There is no easy answer to this question by any means, but you can be extra prepared this year with these summer fishing tips.

Summer Fishing Tips

1. Find Cover

This is one of the most important factors when fishing. You need to put your lure where the fish are and to do this you have to find cover. Cover can be in many forms: rocks, wood, boat docks, and lilypads are just a few examples. When you’ve found the perfect cover spot, make sure that you have the perfect lure to go with it.

Summer Fishing Tips 2. Knots, Knots, Knots

Sometimes tying knots when fishing can be a pain, but losing a fish to a bad knot is even worse. To catch more fish, you need to become a knot-tying pro. As Mystery Tackle Box says, “How to tie fishing knots is one of the most sought-after of all fishing tips on the internet, and for good reason. Simple knots like the Palomar and Clinch knots are great options for nearly every technique.”

Summer Fishing Tips3. Use The Wind

Many people think that wind can be more of a negative than a positive while fishing. Well, we’re here to tell you that wind can actually increase your chances of catching big fish for many reasons. Due to the wind, the surface of the water is disturbed, so the fish are less likely to get scared by boats. The wind can also make it harder for smaller baitfish to move, therefore attracting bigger fish.

After a great summer day of fishing, the number one thing needed to succeed is persistence. Just like when looking for a new home, persistence is key! Contact me today for all your home buying needs.
