Fisherman on boat with fishIf you’re like most fishermen, you’re chomping at the bit to get back out on the water this spring.

While you wait for the weather to take a turn for the better, there are certain things you can begin to plan out for your spring fishing expeditions to ensure you have all the success you’re hoping for.

In this blog we will discuss three easy-to-follow tips that will go a long way in helping you have a spring fishing season you won’t soon forget.

Check the weather before heading out

As the weather can be rather unpredictable in the spring months, it is important to check weather reports before heading out for a day on the water. It is suggested to go out on the warmer days of spring, as fish typically come out in greater numbers when the temperature of the water increases.

As an added tip, look for fishing locations that may be slightly warmer such as shallower areas of water and areas that are free of trees and completely exposed to the sun.

Fish in the Afternoon

Similarly, it is suggested to fish in the afternoon, as that is when the weather is usually the warmest. It is suggested to head out in the late morning hours and stay out until the early evening to have the greatest chance at bringing in a prized fish in the spring months. And of course, don’t forget to pack a lunch or snacks so you can stay out on the water for the entire day.

Have the right rod

While it is certainly important to go out when the weather is warm and favorable, you really won’t be able to catch a thing unless you have the right rod.

It is suggested to choose a rod that is lightweight, yet durable, and one that is truly comfortable for you. After all, you’ll be the one that is getting hours and hours of use out of it.
