Among all other outdoor activities, fishing is the most popular and engaging one. No matter whether you are a pro or just a beginner, fishing is always fun. So are you excited about your first fishing trip? Do not worry.
Every beginner has to start their journey at some point and here is yours. Despite being a beginner we want you to have the best fishing experience on your first fishing trip. So we have some tips for you to guide you on the right ways. So, are you ready? Let’s begin the discussion.
Find The Right Place- This is highly important for a beginner. You have to find the right place where the probability of catching fish is higher. Prolong waiting could ruin your excitement and patience. So it would be ideal to find the exact spot from the very beginning. Talk to local fish guides or professional anglers to find more places that are ideal for fish.
Do The Right Packing- Fishing requires some special tools, Such as fish hooks, fishing bait, fishing gears, rods & reels, a tackle box, a fish seat and more. Make sure you have everything in your tackle box. Your entire experience depends on your arrangements. Make sure you have more than 3 hooks in different sizes. Also, try to avoid carrying old hooks rather than choosing sharp ones. Have enough lure in your tackle box and you are good to go.
Choose The Right Size Of Gear- Here is a point to be noted that the fishing gear’s size must match the size of fish you are aiming for. Suppose you are targeting a carp fish then you have to make sure you have a large-sized gear. Do not pick the same size gears. Rather choose gears in different shapes and sizes.
Match The Bait’s Colour Well- As a beginner, you may don’t know what we call bait. Well, bait is primarily known as fish’s food which anglers use to attract fish. Without fishing bait, you won’t be able to catch a single fish. Also having a lot of bait is not enough. You have to use it correctly. You have to make sure the colour of the bait gets matched with the colour of the water. As an example, white baits are ideal if you see the water is clean enough.
Reach The Location Earlier- As a beginner, you must know a bit about the ideal time for fishing. It will help you to catch more fish. Try reaching the location as early as possible. Remember early morning is the most ideal time for fishing. Ambient sunlight has a positive effect on fishing and we advise you to use that.
Hope our guide can make your first time experience an amazing one. Also, hold enough patience. Remember a beginner needs that the most.
