  • River Fishing: 4 Essential Accessories to Use in the Water

    Posted by Landon Webb on Jun 24, 2016

    River fishing gives you opportunities to catch all types of fish, like bass, carp, and white perch. If a river is low enough, then you have the opportunity to step off of the shore and walk through the river to fish. As you prepare for river fishing, it’s important to get the proper gear and accessories ready for the water. The following four accessories are ideal for river fishing and will make it a lot easier for you to travel through the water and catch some fish. Needle-Nose Pliers Don’t let a snagged line, bent hook, or stuck hook cut your fishing day short. Instead, you can have a tool that helps with all types of fishing situations. A pair of needle-nose pliers can make a huge difference when you’re fishing. The tool allows you to cut line, pull hooks out of fishes’ mouths, and add a variety of sinkers onto your fishing pole. A small pair of pliers is typically lightweight and can easily be carried through the river. Fanny Pack Safety is a big concern when you are traveling through a river and fishing. Instead of carrying multiple bags around, you want to have as little extra weight on you as possible. Give yourself access to extra accessories and bait by wearing a fanny pack around your waist. It’s easy to reach into the fanny pack, and the small size will help you maintain your balance while you travel through different sections of the river. Waterproof Phone Pouch Some items that are carried into the river should not get wet. This is why it’s a good idea...

  • Three Tips For Casting On A Boat

    Posted by Landon Webb on May 26, 2016

    Fishing is both a leisurely and exciting activity. However, boat fishing introduces an entirely new level of intensity. While many techniques are the same whether on land or water, you do need to make some changes when it comes to casting in order to ensure safety and for the most successful experience. Short And Sweet Casting Keep your casting maneuvers short and sweet. When fishing on land, there is generally ample space to cast your line. However, the opposite is true on a boat. If you overlook this, you could hurt another angler on the boat. For boat fishing, keep your casting style simple. In fact, it’s often okay to cast literately right on top of the fish you are attempting to catch. Given the small space, this eliminates the need for you to perform a forceful and long cast, which is important for safety. When casting on a boat, keep it short, unless you’re on a very large vessel.   To Stand Or Sit When casting from a boat, you also have to consider whether or not you should stand or sit. Answering this question has everything to do with the type of boat you are on. Generally, when you are on a small boat like a small raft or canoe, you want to sit. The reason for this is that these boats are far less steady than large vessels, so every time the boat moves it will be harder for you to keep your body and the line stable, causing the fish to swim away. If you are on a larger vessel, such as a pontoon, feel...
