3 Common Fishing Mistakes

Whether you’re planning to take your family out for a fishing trip or you just want to spend some time alone on the open water, fishing isn’t as simple as having a hook, lure, and bait. You need to understand the do’s and don’ts of fishing to get the best haul or even come back with a good story. Here are some common fishing mistakes to avoid.

General Unpreparedness

If you’re planning a fishing trip, you must ensure you’re ready. That means:

  • Changing the hook
  • Replacing the line
  • Checking the weather
  • Leaving early, and having a game plan

Forgetting or neglecting to do these things could make it that much more unlikely to get a fish.

Fishing in the Wrong Spot

You can’t just stand at the beach and expect to catch something because the water over there is too shallow. At the same time, going all the way out to deep water may not help you, either. Make sure you have the right depth, especially if there’s a particular species you’re looking for. Fish also tend to stay close to “structures,” such as brush piles.

Using the Wrong Lure or Bait

Not all fish want to catch the same prey, and not all fish are attracted to the same lure. For instance, if a lure looks out of place in the fish’s habitat, it won’t go for it. Meanwhile, not all fish are interested in worms, and others will be more interested in flies, minnows, crickets, or other bait.
