How To/Pro-Tips

Circle Hooks

Circle hooks have long been the rage for bait fishermen in saltwater. Now they're catching on inland, too. There's one major difference, though. Standard hooks require a forceful set, but circle hooks do not. Just start reeling and the hook's unique design will hang it in the corner of your fish's mouth. The results are fewer gut-hooked fish and better releases.

Quiet Your Trolling Motor

When using an up-close presentation like pitching or flipping, it helps to make sure the prop on your trolling motor is free of nicks. Rough spots will make more noise themselves and they'll also pick up more weeds and debris that increases commotion, which will spook fish.

Pattern Variety

Don't fall in love with a particular pattern (shad, bluegill, trout) unless you always fish the same lake. Otherwise you might find yourself fishless someday because you insisted cranking a bluegill pattern through a fishery with a shad forage base. It helps to match the forage's size, too.

Read the Directions

Did you hear about a hot lure, but don't know how to fish it? The first order of business after buying it is to read the packaging or enlosed
directions. Not all baits come with instructions, but it should always be the first place you look before asking questions.

Productive Fishing from the Bank

Looking for productive places you can fish from the bank? If you fish anything from small watershed lakes to major impoundments they can all have something in common. It's a spillway, tailrace or overflow. They have highly-oxygenated water with whatever fish are in the lake above. And they're usually hungry.
