5 Fishing Tips for Beginners

If you are reading this, I'm guessing you are a beginner angler wanting some fishing tips? Well, you have come to the right place.  Let's talk about them:

1.  Fishing Gear

When it comes to fishing gear such as rods, reels, line, etc. you get what you pay for.  Don't go with the cheap stuff when it comes to rods and reels because cheaper rods will break easily and plastic reels will bind and crap out quickly. Also, get a feel for the different types of reels such as open faced reels and bait casters.

2.  Fish Different Areas

Let's face it, there are just some spots were the fish are not.  I have fished MANY different places in lakes, rivers, streams, sewers, etc and you have to test different waters and find out were the fish are!

3.  Time of Year

Certain types of fish are active in certain parts of the year.  For an example, bass fishing is usually rough in December and January when the water is cold, but salt water fishing for red fish, trout and sheep head seem to be better in the colder months.  Some fish such as bass and catfish tend to spawn when the water temperature starts to rise from the colder months and go into shallow water.  Don't waste your time fishing for something that isn't biting!

4. Patience

Patience is a virtue.  I have tried to have more patience over the years because there are some days when you aren't going to catch anything.  Sometimes, you just have to keep on fishing and don't get discouraged if you don't catch anything.

5.  Lures

In order to become a better angler you need to know what lures to use depending on the fish you are trying to catch.  For an example, when bass fishing you can use anything from soft and hard plastic artificial lures rather than live bait but if you are fishing for bream, you might want to use live bait instead.
