Fishing Tips Videos Can Help You Improve Your Catch Ratio
If you were thinking that catching a big fish comes down to throwing the cast long enough in the water and then quietly and patiently wait for the fish to come to you, then don’t worry; you weren’t the only one living in major delusion. I personally thought that the further away the line is from you, the much bigger the chances of catching a fish are! It turned out, I was so wrong. Luckily, I’m the type that like to learn new things, and when a friend pointed to my mistakes offering me this set of fishing tips videos to watch, I was rather happy. Hey, I’m finally going to learn how to do perfect fishing and stop wasting my time for nothing!
Here’s what I learned:
- Overcasting doesn’t get you anything more than casting in front of you.
I used to think that when I cast the bait as further as possible in the water, I’m going to catch bigger fish. And more of them, as a matter of fact; it’s where logic took me. But, I was apparently very wrong, because each time I did that, I’d come home empty-handed. After watching the various fishing tips videos, I started first analysing the environment I was going to do the casting; one important thing about all successful catches is the presence of gutters in waters; gutters are the zones where predatory fish look for baits, so pretty much where you’re most likely to get your catch.
- Throw away the rod holder.
Or, it’s a lot better to hold your rod with your hands. This way you have control over the catch and know exactly when you need to pull the line back. Otherwise, you may not even notice when the fish lets go of the bait. Plus, having your rod in your hands at all times, saves you time; you’ll have the baits and tackles at your arm’s reach so you don’t have to waste time while baiting up or changing the rig.
- Think of polarized sunglasses as your friend.
It may sound very funny, but a pair of polarized sunglasses is more then needed on a fishing trip. As much as you may be enjoying the sun, excessive sunlight does long-term damage to your eyes. Additionally, when it bounces off of the water surface it comes straight to your eyes partially blinding you. The point here is that with all the sunlight, you can’t see underwater and can’t have visual control over the situation with your bait. Polarized sunglasses filter that vision for you and you can see clearly, which makes it a lot easier for you to know when a fish comes close to your bait.
These would be the basic tips I can give you on improving your fishing experience. However, have in mind that fishing is a sport and a craft to a certain extent, so you may wanna do more research by watching some more fishing tips videos and reading articles on the matter.
