It’s fishing season, the season you’ve been waiting for, you’re positive that this is going to be your year. You can just feel it and you’ve seen your trophy fish in your dreams. You have everything you need; rods, reels, line, lures, bait, sinkers and a boat with a full tank of gas.
But just because you have everything you need doesn’t mean you’re going to catch that fish, the fish don’t bite simply because you’re out on the water and you dangle flashy smelly things in front of them.
There are plenty of tips you should know about when to fish.
Experts say that the best time to fish in the spring is early morning or “morning rise”, fish will be hungry after the long winter and need to feed to prepare for spawning. In the summer, fish will avoid the long hot summer days and lay low so the best time to fish is at night. In the fall fish will be in a feeding frenzy getting ready for a long winter.
Fish are most active when the water is between 55 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the water should feel cool to your skin but not freezing. The wind plays a part as well, you want the water to be calm and still or even a bit rippled.
Know your moons. Your best bet will be between one hour before and one hour after high tides and one hour before and one hour after low tides.
