MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- The most important tip anyone can offer is maintaining sharp hooks no matter what the fish,
the lure or the presentation. You can not have too sharp a hook!
- Bass are very structure oriented even when they are in the shallows, relating to some type of depth change.
When you do catch a Bass, use your GPS to mark the spot since they are there for a reason.
This will help you find more places on the lake just like that one.
- If the lake you are fishing has docks, be sure to pitch or skip a worm grub or jig/creature bait around
or under those docks and retrieve them slowly, bumping into stumps, weeds and other cover.
- With all the electronics anglers are using plus other items too, there is considerably increased power usage
that can drain your starting battery fast. Concerned with this a few years ago, I started carrying a set of jumper cables
long enough to jump our starting battery with the trolling motor deep-cycle batteries. Lately we heard of anglers
running two 12-volt, marine batteries in parallel which maintains a 12-volt system but increases longevity.
To do it right, use a couple Heavy-duty jumpers (6 or 8-gauge) & hook the batteries positive-to-positive and negative-to-negative.
** 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..   Get Out and ENJOY..!

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



  - Fish Facts: 1900s Theodore Gordon was a writer who fished Catskill region of New York State in late 19th century through early 20th century.
He is often called the father of the American school of dry fly fishing after he imported English fly-fishing tackle and flies and began to alter
the English flies to precisely match the insects hatching in the Neversink, Beaverkill rivers, and Willowemoc Creek.
