There is no such thing as a bad season for fishing. You just need the right technique for fishing in a particular season.
Fall is one of the best seasons to fish. In this season, fish get ready for the long, cold winter. As fishermen say, they “put on the feed bag”. Just like what ants usually do, they horde food for the coming winter. Fish don’t like to move around and find food once the water gets cold.
Fall Fishing tips:
- 1. Use slower lures and flasher draw when fishing during fall.
- 2. Use swim baits, jerk baits, and other realistic imitations to attract more fish.
- 3. Hold the fish with bucktail jigs.
- 4. Follow the birds to know where to find pods of fish.
- 5. Make sure you have your fishing rod case handy when manuvuring through the wild and rocky terrain.
All waters may seem to be in ice and snow during this season, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to catch a fish or two. Because of the cold season, fishes will move deeper, where the waters have not cooled down as much as in the shallows yet, but with the right techniques, you’ll have pretty good time fishing.
Winter Fishing Tips:
- 1. Use slow-rolled spinner baits to mimic an easy meal for fish.
- 2. If you are only getting fewer bites, adjust the size of your bait.
- 3. Fish deeper and keep the bait on the bottom.
Spring time is the spawning time for fishing! Fish like to spawn during the season of spring because of the level of temperature. However, this doesn’t mean that fish will spawn in just about anywhere. Remember that different areas in the water may be at different temperatures.
Spring Fishing Tips:
- 1. Use spinner baits in fishing during this time of the year.
- 2. Use moving baits in deeper waters near spawning flats.
- 3. Use soft plastic worm imitations and drop them into the weeds where fish put their beds on.
- 4. In the shallow waters, look for light spots with dark centers. Throw a soft bait past the bed and drag it into the bed slowly. Place the bait on the bed and wait for the fish to get the catch.
- 5. Look for waters with the temperature of 60 – 70 degrees. Fish like to spawn in these degrees of water temperature.
When the waters heat up, fish look for cooler places. The most fun and ideal technique in fishing during summer is kayak fishing. You are able to not only catch more fish but also able to enjoy the tranquility of kayaking.
Spring fishing tips:
- 1. Use drop shots to get highly-pressured fish to bite.
- 2. Fish around the “hide-outs” of fish like lily pads, tules, or docks.
- 3. Go to where the birds go.
