Here are 7 ways to get better at fishing
There are plenty of ways to get better at fishing while you’re actually out on the water. Practice new techniques, try new bodies of water, throw new lures. There are STILL plenty of ways you can improve.
Here are 8 ways to get better at fishing without even being on the water:
Find a target, pitch at it, and practice until you can hit it in your sleep.
Practice Your Knots
Knots are as important as anything in fishing, although they often get overlooked. A strong knot is like oxygen: you only notice it when you don’t have it. Don’t lose your skill for tying a tight knot while you’re not on the water. You can even learn a new knot that might become your favorite!
Change Out Your Hooks
Make sure all of your gear is as sharp as possible. If it isn’t, change out your hooks to make sure you’re ready for maximum hook-ups when you do get a chance to get back out on the water.
Watching Fishing Videos
The fishing community is one of the more active and engaged communities on YouTube. You can find plenty of good fishing videos on YouTube.
Clean/Maintain Your Equipment
Having your equipment in the right shape is vital to success on the water. Make sure your rods and reels are clean, and if you’re lucky enough to have a boat, keep it ready to go for the start of season.
Learn How To Rig
Practice tying up the drop shot rig, Alabama rig, Texas rig, and more. You might even come across a few lesser known rigs you’ve never tried. Add them to your arsenal and try them out when the season starts back up!
Research Bodies Of Water
Find out which water spot in your area were productive during the last season, and find some new areas to try as well. Use resources such as Fishidy to research which hot spots you should target.
