MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- Watched couple anglers recently using only a one-arm cast with their baitcasting rods.
I believe they may have fished with pistol grip spin-cast rods before and will most likely recognize
that the pistol grip rods on these longer rods will not give anglers the balance and leverage needed
when fighting a bigger fish. With these extend rod butts, anglers can use the other hand to counterbalance every
cast for more accuracy and distance. I know this can be a challenge to chance, but consciously using the two hand cast,
one will get used to it and realize at the end of the day there is less fatigue and even fewer backlashes.
- When fish stop biting in an area you were catching fish, do not assume you caught them all.
Something has triggered them to change and if it has become cloudy, this can cause Bass to move into shallower water or areas.
Or, if it was cloudy and the sun has come out, look for fish to move tighter to cover - areas of shade.
One other influence is fish will move shallow when water levels are rising, and/or move deeper if lake level is dropping.
- WATCH FOR CHANGES -
** Support our local Bait Shops to assure they will be there when we need them for fresh,
lively baits and current fishing info or advice as well as the latest tackle
  - Just a Thought..

Do Not Forget - - FISHING IS MEANT TO BE FUN - -



  - Fish Facts: 1909 - Horton Manufacturing Co. of Bristol, CT begins making tubular telescopic steel rods with one variety that still evokes the most interest from collectors is the rod with the line running through it, instead of through outside mounted guides. These rods were still popular enough to be listed in catalogs in the 1930s and steel rods remained popular into the 1950s
