Welcome to The Hunting Knife Depot and I’m glad you stopped by. This is the first update I’ve posted to this site and I wanted to share a bit of gold that my grand pappy shared with me just last week. I had heard this before, but it was good to hear it again now that I’m an adult.
- First, make sure you’re looking a the body of water, be it a lake or a river or stream, as a whole. It’s easy to get fixated on one location that looks great while you’re standing over it. However, if you’re not aware of your surroundings, you could be on the wrong side of the river.
- That brings me to the next tip. Make sure you’re on the right side of the river. If things aren’t great where you are, then move up or down the river.
- Test things out. Don’t sit there all day for 8 hours and cast out if you’re not getting bites. Go to where the fish are and if you’re using basic bait, then you’ll get bites.
- Nowadays, I take my phone out as soon as I’ve caught a fish, and I mark it on a map. There’s specific apps for just this, but you can also just use a basic Google map and star where you’re catching them. This makes it impossible to lose your fishing spot if you forget. This isn’t my grandpa’s tip, but my own tip from the modern era of hunters and fishers.
- And last thing. Never share your fishing holes with anybody. Aside from close family, if you share your favorite places on Facebook or wherever people like to talk, then you’ll soon find out why. People are notorious for wanting fishing tips and the best tip you can give someone is where to fish. So just avoid sharing this at all costs.
