Fishing is a fun sport that requires some skill and timing. Depending on where you fish, your tactics will be different. Brackish or colder water may call for a certain style of fishing, while calm fresh water might need a different style. Regardless of the type of fish or water, there are some freshwater fishing tips that everyone should follow.


·        
For lake and river fishing, go where the water turns from shallow to deep. Fish like to congregate and look for food in this area.

·         Shiny fishing lures can attract certain fish, but the reflection of the sun can blind them and cause confusion.

·         Use a matted metal fishing lure instead if possible, to avoid too much reflection.

·         Cast close to the shoreline for more bites.

·         Look for mossy areas, as fish prefer to swim in these areas to forage for food.

·         A lot of people use worms as bait, but locusts are also a great choice. Larger fish like bass really enjoy these insects.

·         Check the local fishing reports that day for updates on areas where they're biting.

·         Sunrise is an excellent time to fish, try to go out early in the morning.

·         Pay close attention to the movement of your line. Learn how to understand the difference between a curious fish and one that is biting so you can hook and reel it in.

·         Research the region you will be fishing in to find out what kinds of fish live there and the things they like.

·         Be patient. Patience really is the key to good fishing. Bring a book or radio if you plan to out for a long time and remember that all good things come to those who wait.
