1 Finding The Right Time To Fish
You might be a night owl, but sleeping in til 10am won’t help you catch fish. Some of the best times of day is fishing first thing in the morning at the break of dawn. Fish like bass are low-light predators and are more apt to chase a lure on gray days or when the sun is low at dawn or dusk.
2 Be A Better Student of Fishing

Talk about techniques, fishing situations, weather, etc to better understand how fish behave. Learn new tips and try them out next time you go fishing.
3 Fish Were Others Don’t Fish
If you are willing, go to those fishing spots that other people won’t. Drive to a remote fishing spot, wade a little further out into the river. Keep and eye out for where the fish are active in the water. All of these things allow you to get ahead and catch fish more often than those around you. Don’t get stuck going to the same old fishing spot each time, try somewhere new.
4 Reel That Fish In Slow
Once you get a big Vermont Bass Fish on the hook, you’ll naturally want to reel it in fast. Don’t do it. A good angler will know that fighting the fish to much may break your line. When you are reeling in a fish, reel it slow and steady, with no slack on the line. Don’t jerk the line! If you see waves in the water as you are reeling, you are going to fast. The goal is to keep the fish on the line all the way to the boat.
5 Practice Fishing Constantly
