10 Fishing Gems
Fishing Gem #1 - When Is Best?
If you are in a boat and plan to anchor and bottom fish, get out there before the sun goes down and set up .
Over many years, it has been noticed that a good bite usually starts 2 hours before sunrise. Use an alarm clock to make sure you don't miss it!
You want to be set up and ready to wet-bait a half hour before the sun sets. Anchoring and cooking needs to be done prior to the sunset. Cooking while evening fishing can be hazardous and spills may occur!
One of the reasons to be all set up at least 30 minutes before dark is that there is usually a minor bite Ĺ hour before or after either sunrise or sunset. Typically they feed shallower during this minor bite - about 30 feet down in many cases.
Remember, on most bodies of water, the remaining minutes at twilight can be absolutely magical for fishermen.
Fishing Gem #2 - Go Towards The Light!
For good fast action (in either saltwater or freshwater), try to fish around piers with lights on the end of them. Most successful night fishing excursions occur around lights on buoys or piers.
Fishing Gem #3 - Can't Forget The Stream Fishermen!
Brown trout are so active after dark that it sometimes is possible to fish in just one pool and, in a good stream, take one trout after another. Use very large dry flies, oversized streamers, wet flies, and nymphs. The larger flies are easier for night-feeding trout to locate. You should fish them very slowly. With wet and streamer flies you can leave them suspended in the current near the surface and frequently take trout, although this system would not normally work during the day. Big dry flies can be drawn slowly along the surface of the water in a jerking motion to help attract trout. Some fishermen use small popping bugs when fishing for trout at night.
Fishing Gem #4 - Things To Know About Hooking Up With Stripers
Most successful Striper fishing excursions occur around lights on buoys or docks in deep water (up to 100 feet!).
There are also reports that Stripers will not go near an area where dead Stripers have been dumped for days. Some believe dead or wounded Striper let off an odor that keeps others away.
In most lakes, you will be more successful using jig heads than hooks and sinkers and Shad are a much more effective bait than anchovies.
Fishing Gem #5 - Keep That Bait Alive And Kickin'!
One secret to keeping your bait alive while waiting for the sun to set is to paint the inside of your bait tank black. Bait fish will typically swim towards the light, which in daylight would mean they are banging themselves against the sides of your bait tank. Your bait will live much longer if you eliminate daytime light, so they will stay in one place to avoid self-destruction.
Fishing Gem #6 - Listen Up!
When you fish after dark, always be alert for signs of feeding fish. At night your normally hear feeding fish before you see their swirls or splashes. When you hear a fish break the surface, chuck your lure to the spot as soon as possible. Remember that fish often have trouble locating a lure at night, so make repeated casts to spots you think hold fish.
Fishing Gem #7 - Deep Water Essential
Under deep-water conditions, you should to use a bait-caster in combination with a long graphite rod that has a lot of backbone. This setup will enable you to move a lot of line and will ensure a solid hook set in the deeper water. In addition, you should also utilize your black light to carefully watch the bow in your line to detect subtle strikes as the bait drops. These tactics will produce when fish are holding to a deep-water pattern and most other areas are not producing.
Fishing Gem #8 - It Ain't All Peaches And Cream On A Boat!
The possible downsides of night fishing are that you need to limit your group socializing and partying; it just won't work if you want to catch fish. It's also not recommended for young children, and not for more than 2 to a boat, unless the boat is large. If you had to ride out a storm, it would be a bit scarier than in the day. If the fishing is good (which it usually is at night), be willing to alter your sleep patterns.
Fishing Gem #9 - Lake Fishing Keys To Success
Main lake points offer excellent opportunities to catch fish at night. If the action slows down, come back later and you can catch additional fish from the exact same point.
Colors ranging from red/black, blue/black, green/black to chartreuse/orange seem to work well on all lakes throughout the summer. It is wise to carry a wide assortment of colors, weights, and blade sizes to meet the demands of the fish.
Main lake points and secondary points are key areas that attract fish at night throughout the summer months. Basically, the fish are inactive during the day due to the hot temperatures and will suspend in deep water off of the points. However they will move onto the points at night to ambush schools of baitfish. These locations are fairly easy to locate and can be fished very quickly allowing you to cover a lot of water in a short period of time.
Fishing Gem #10 - Live-Bait Catching!
Obviously have some bait jigs ready when you need to replenish your stock of live bait on board. For rapid bait catching, the Evening Secret is one of the best solutions, especially at night.
