In this article I’m going to reveal 3 powerful tips for catching fish. These tips have been proven through more than 55 years of combined fishing experience. These tips have been proven to be successful through real world fishing experience, and aren’t just theory or conjecture. You will be able to use one or all of them to start catching fish on your next fishing excursion.
Before I get down to the tips themselves I think it’s worth mentioning that there are no “magic formulas” as far as fishing is concerned. There is nothing on this earth that will help you in the pursuit of catching fish like spending time on the water practicing your craft. The more time that you can spend on the water, the more fish you will catch, it’s as simple as that. Don’t buy into the hype that this or that “new bait” or device will help you catch a ton more fish. The only thing that can really accomplish this task is spending time on the water fishing.
That being said, shall we get down to the tips for catching fish?
* Clean Your Hands – No matter what species of fish you like to target, freeing your hands of unnatural scents is of the utmost importance. Any unnatural scents that are on your hands will transfer to your bait or lure and cost you bites. This is especially true with larger, more experienced fish. I’ve personally tested this tip and it is absolutely true. Clean your hands of unnatural scents and you will catch more fish. This can be easily accomplished by using odor neutralizing soap or by rubbing your hands in a handful of dirt or grass before baiting up.
* Be Efficient – What do I mean by being efficient? Simply this; The more efficient you are (which means having everything you need organized and readily available while fishing) the more time you get to spend with your line in the water where the fish are, rather than out of the water while you bait up, re-bait, or search for a needed object. To be truly efficient in the pursuit of catching fish items such as bait bags, fishing vests, tackle bags, retractors, and hemostats need to be employed. Always make sure your heavily used items such as your favorite lures, hemostats for hook removal, extra hooks and bait, and nets are within easy reach while fishing.
Use Gang Hooks – Granted this tip is for catching fish. Gang hooks are simply a pair of small hooks tied in tandem, which enable bait to be presented in a natural and realistic manner (especially in the case of worms). Honestly, if you fish with worms (either live or synthetic) gang hooks are a phenomenal fishing tip for catching fish.
Use one or all of these powerful tips for catching fish sooner, rather than later and find out for yourself just hoe effective they are. They have all been helping me catch more fish for many years and I know they will do the same for you.
