Make a Plan
Some people may just grab a nearby fishing pole and some worms and head out without any plan or knowledge about what they are doing. But not you! You can be much more successful if you start with a plan and a little bit of research. First, it's important to know what kind of fish are available to you, and which kind you want to catch. Once you know the type of fish, you can plan your day accordingly. Some fish bite more readily in the morning, while others are more eager in the evening. Sometimes, a cloudy day can bring out the fish you're looking for. So, before you head out on the open water, do a little bit of research and planning to help have the most successful day possible.
All fish are different, so once you know what kind you are fishing for, you can choose the appropriate gear to reel them in one after the other. Be sure to pick the proper rod strength and length to support the lures you plan to use and fish type you intend to catch. It is also important to get the correct kind of bait before you try catching the perfect fish. Not all fish are attracted to worms, so you may need to invest in special lures that imitate your fish's prey. The type of lure you use could make or break your fishing experience.
Many people enjoy fishing from their own dock or shoreline, but many of the best - and biggest - fish are out on the open water.
