Don't blind the fish! While shiny lures are often very effective at attracting specific species, the reflection of the sun can blind a fish and send it swimming away. Matte lures can be equally as effective while they won't scare off as many fish as a metallic lure would, so consider using both when you fish.

 

Caution should be exercised when drinking while fishing! While many people feel that fishing is the perfect sport for a beer or other alcoholic beverages, care must be taken, especially when fishing from a boat. Additionally, alcohol is a quick route to stupid, but serious mistakes, such as a hook in someone's eye, or the loss of the day's catch.

 

If you want to catch fish, be sure your hooks are always sharp. Unless the hook is very sharp, you will have a difficult time keeping anything on it. Sharpen your hook prior to the day you intend to fish so you don't have to mess with it on the big day.

 

You may want to check out your lure's hooks if you are missing fish. Many fishermen do not realize that hooks can become blunt or twisted which makes fish harder to catch. Change your hooks often so that your lures catch fish without hassle.

 

If you'd like to create a memory of your big catch, take a photo so you don't need to take the fish with you. This allows the fish to live while leaving you with a memento.

 

Learning to correctly set the hook is essential to becoming a good fisherman. A good fast hook set is essential when you are fishing, particularly when you are fishing with lures. If you do not set the hook properly, you will lose the fish after all the effort you put in to get the bite.

 

Be sure to keep your hands protected, if you wish to do some hand-line fishing. A pair of some soft leather gloves can help you prevent line burn. Cutting out the fingers around the second joint can ensure that you can perform any other tasks without having to take them off.

 

Pay attention to the weather. Wait a few days after a storm or a cold front. If the water is cold, fishes will stay at the bottom and not look for food. Usually, the water starts warming up again two days after a cold front has passed through an area.

 

Imagine the look of awe your child or grandchild will have when you pull out a giant fish from the water. These are memories which will last them a lifetime, and now you'll be able to create these memories, whenever you wish, since you are so good at fishing.
