Fishing is an age old outdoor activity humans indulged in to catch fish from different water bodies like rivers, lakes and oceans. Other than being an idle activity, fishing was means of collecting seafood in the good old days. Now it has developed into a large scale industry, feeding millions worldwide. Trained fishermen with nets, fishing ropes go long distances in the deeper sea and return back with overflowing nets of tiny indigenous fish. But as an outdoor activity, all you basically need is a 12joker fishing rope, bait and a case to carry fish.
Know the kind of fish you’re fishing for
It is necessary that you learn about the fish you are fishing for in the nearby lake or water body. Based on its taste preferences and movement, you can decide the kind of fishing equipment and baits you may require. Now there may be different kinds of fish in that particular water body, our advice would be to start with the one that moves the most. They are the easier ones to catch using some attractive looking bait.
Be creative with your fishing baits
Many of the fishes out there have particular taste preferences and selecting the wrong kind of bait can leave you sitting there in the sun for hours. To avoid that, make sure you have live baits because that always works the best along with plastic baits which you can color up with an indelible marker to make it look catchy in the water. Try purchasing live baits that corresponds with the taste of the fish you’re fishing for.
Have the basic equipment
Fishing requires you to have a normal fishing rod, a harness that is a reel, some extra line and hooks, a case to carry fish back and some living/non-living baits. These basic items will help you fish anywhere and everywhere. In addition to this, if you are going on a full scale fishing trip then we advise you to carry a few drinks and snacks for yourself as there will be a lot of down time while fishing. A carry case also called a tackle box will help store sharp hooks, live baits, knife, flashlights, first aid supplies etc.
Get a map or ask someone to accompany you locally
If you are new to the place then we strongly recommend you to carry a map that describes the place and the particular water body you are fishing in for any hidden dangers or if a local accompanies you then that is even more helpful in finding about the place, its water bodies and fishing culture.
Choose waves over flat water
Waves are your best friends. If the water body you’re fishing in has gentle tides and waves then it implies that there is fish movement. This will help you decide your fishing spot and where you must lower the rope with the tiny bait.
