One challenge of fishing is improving your craft and feeling the satisfaction of mastering the art of fishing.

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

Some of the best anglers in the world read fishing magazines and share stories about fishing with friends and colleagues. Simply put, eat, sleep and fish! 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

Keith really runs a terrific private ice fishing excursion!! From the start, Keith was extremely responsive, organized and full of knowledge and excitement over our family’s desire to try ice fishing for the first time. Keith was thorough in his planning with us so that we were prepared and comfortable with our plans. The day was amazing—-Keith is an expert fisherman, and he so was patient with all of us non fishermen/women. We learned so much and really had the time of our lives with Keith! We will definitely do another excursion with Keith soon, and highly recommend him!

Keith and his dad run a great service and provided us with an excellent time on the lake. He knows what he’s doing and takes his time to teach the tour group. Absolutely would book again.

We had a blast fishing with Keith last week. He put us on nonstop action on a hot day, which is not easy. The lake was beautiful and fun to jump in as well. My nine-year-old daughter does not have a ton of fishing experience, but he was able to get her working the retrieves perfectly, and she ended up out fishing me by a long shot! We got largemouth, smallmouth, rock bass, Pickerel, Perch, and sunfish. Keith is great with kids, and a lot of fun to hang out with for grown-ups. His boat and equipment are top notch as well. I would recommend this guy to anyone, And we are looking forward to our next trip which might be some ice fishing.
