Whether you are fishing or not – it is important that we make the best out of every situation. When it comes to fishing, that means LEARNING no matter what. If the bite is on fire and you’re slaying fish – make sure you are learning, but if the bite is tough and the weather sucks… MAKE SURE YOU ARE LEARNING.
This is one way to make sure that each and every fishing trip you are lucky enough to head out on serves a greater purpose in your life. That purpose is increasing your experience and education, and becoming a more weathered and knowledgeable fisherman so that you can share that knowledge with other anglers, your kids, your spouse – even complete strangers.
Test things out.
Learn from people you can talk to.
Watch other anglers and see what they’re doing.
Figure out where structure and cover can be found.
What is the forage?
Is there current?
Work on your casting accuracy.
Explore the area and look for new hot-spots.
There is so much we can do to make the most out of the slowest of days.
So focus… and don’t take ANY days (even the slow ones) for granted!
Time to fish.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for improving, or a pond or creek to fish, or just want to say hey in the comments or on social media. I’m always trying to improve and appreciate your input. Thanks much!
Let’s get better.
