When Water Levels Change

When water starts falling it really can change things in a hurry when it comes to effects on fishing.

The levels may be natural or induced but either way it can be a pain in the butt for fisher people.

A drop or rise of an inch wont barely be noticed. However when we talk like a foot higher or lower it can make big differences in the fishing.

When the water drops a lot it takes away good cover spots for fishing. What you need to do now is take a long hard look and envision where the cover may be.

What you want to do is take pictures and take notes. This way when the water comes back up you will have a great idea as to where the fish may be.

Fishing And Wildlife

Have a look at the wildlife around you when you go fishing and you will get a good idea of how the fishing might be.

When fishing gets slow take a good look around the place you are fishing. You will want to watch for things like squirrels and listen for birds. If fishing has turned bad chances are you wont see a lot or hear a lot.

You have to understand that fish are also a piece of wildlife. Many times you can make decisions based on what you see going on above the water.Link
So at the end of the day take the time to pay attention and when it comes to fishing chances are you will catch a lot more once you learn to read nature and wildlife a bit.

Fishing In The Grass

If you are fishing in large open areas and not having a bunch of luck you may want to think of moving.

Many times if you head over to the underwater grassy areas you will end up hitting a honey hole and catching all kinds of fish.

Whats even better is a grassy area that is near deep water. A spot like this could prove to be the best for a long time to come.

The lure you will probably want to use is a top water lure of some kind. Just get out there and do some fishing.

Just remember a bad day of fishing is better then a good day at work.

Fishing And Color

When it comes to fishing it is so important to know and understand what colors to use in different clarities of water.

Between the light, the penetration of light, colors and clarity can make all the differences in an okay trip or a fantastic trip.

The best thing to do is experiment with different colors in different aspects. When something works make sure in some way you record it. Once you knows what works in different situations these will usually work the same way next time as well.

All you need to do is record things by either writing them down or recording them on a cell phone or something. For some people all they need is their memory.

Do what you want but always know that a bad day of fishing is better then a good day at work.

Another Great Fishing Joke

A woman goes into a shop to buy a rod and reel as a gift

She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter where there's a shop assistant wearing dark shades. "Excuse me sir" she says "can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"

The assistant replies "Ma'am I'm blind but if you drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes."

She didn't believe him, but dropped it on the counter anyway.

He said, "That's a 6' graphite rod with a Zebco 202 reel and 10 lb. test line...It's a good all around rod and reel and it's only $20.00".

The lady said, "It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I think it's what I'm looking for so I'll take it."

He walks behind the counter to the register, and in the meantime the woman breaks wind big-time. At first she is embarrassed but then realizes that there is no way he could tell it was her...being blind he wouldn't know that she was the only person around.

The assistant rings up the sale and says, "That will be $25.50."

She says, "But didn't you say it was $20.00?"

"Yes ma'am, the rod and reel is $20.00, but the duck call is $3.00, and the catfish stink bait is $2.50."
