Catch More Fish
Have you always wondered how to catch more fish? The answer is really quite simple. What do fish want? What do fish need? Get inside the mind of a fish in order to catch more fish. Learning how to catch more fish can be invigorating or relaxing, or both.
- The time to fish. Catch more fish at certain times of the day. Try to fish at sunrise and sunset because almost all species of fish feed during these times, especially during the summer months. You’ll be sure to experience greater success at dawn and dusk if you fish during these time periods.
- Barometric Pressure. When the barometric pressure is rising get out on the water, because it’s an excellent time to fish. High pressure periods yield more active fish than low pressure periods. When fish are active they are most certainly looking for food to meet their energy requirements. You will be able to catch more fish during these high barometric periods, so be sure to check the weather forecast before you leave. Fish aren’t as active during low pressure periods, so it’s not the best time to go fishing.
- The moon. You’ve heard that a full moon brings out the crazies, but it doesn’t bring out the fish The moon cycles through four phases every month: new moon, first quarter, full moon, and third quarter. The best moon phase to catch more fish in is a new moon. Get out your calendar and check the moon phases in order to maximize your ability to catch more fish. You should be able to catch more fish a few days before a new moon and a few days after. The fish are very receptive to the changing moon phases.
- Hide yourself. Fish are extremely sensitive to everything that is around them, especially factors regarding possible predation. If you want to catch more fish, go underground, get stealthy. Try to keep everything looking and feeling as if you’re not there. Fish can sense movement and will scatter when they sense loud noises. Hide your shadow because it will freak the fish out, for all they know you could be an eagle swooping out of the sky ready with razor talons to pluck them up and out of their watery home. Being quiet should be a no brainer. Don’t bang things around or you’ll see the fish scatter.
