MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- With this Hot weather,
Night Fishing is a great way to escape the summer heat and crowds..
- If you are getting the fish to strike but cannot hook them, you may be fishing too fast
or try using a plug that suspends when you pause your retrieve.
Other factors can be hooks that are not sharp or a rod tip that is too soft.
If you cannot land the fish, you may not be setting the hook solidly enough or your drag is too loose.
One other thing is to not let slack develop in your line during the fight.
- When you do catch a Bass, use your GPS to mark the spot since they are there for a reason.
Since Bass are structure oriented, 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.
- When fishing topwater baits, do not set the hook when the fish hits.
Slowly count to 3 or wait until you feel the pull on your line.
If you set the hook when the fish hits, you will pull the lure away.
** 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..!



- - BE SAFE & GOOD FISHING - -

  - Fish Facts: Bluegills´ Eyesight Studies conducted by Dr. Keith Jones of Outdoor Technologies Group prove that the lowly Bluegill has some of the sharpest eyes among game fish. With their high visual acuity, Bluegills are capable of resolving very fine details in objects within their environment, including lures. And to make it even more challenging for anglers, Bluegills´ eyesight gets shaper with age....
