Girl Loves To Fish…

I’m that one in a million girls that loves to fish. I like everything about it. I can do everything from untying the boat and “Shoving off” to heading out to open water. We did a lot of fishing when we were young. My dad taught the whole family, the  boys and the girls. Acting all girly girl didn’t cut the mustard with my Dad, he had all three of us girls baiting our own hooks and teaching us how to take the fish off the hook after you have reeled it in. That was the hardest part for me and still is. I feel bad for the fish, no way do I want it to suffer and cause it unnecessary pain at all. I’m not all that crazy about cleaning
the fish either. I am always so afraid that I am going to miss a bone and someone will end up choking on it and dying because of something that I didn’t do right. That would be just god awful!

I was looking in my tackle box, what a mess! I need to sort it out and give it a good cleaning. I still have plenty of line and tackle, but I may need to upgrade some of my lures. Well, I guess I’ll go get that done. If the weather continues to be so nice, I’ll be down at the shore!

Fishing Can Be Fun

As I’ve mentioned before, I love go fishing. With a little bit of planning, a fishing trip can be great fun for the while family. With this in mind, here are a few top tips on how to go about planning a successful fishing trip – even if you don’t catch many fish!

Firstly, if you are planning on going as a group, then you will need to make sure that you have all that you need to keep everyone comfortable and entertained. Although catching fish can be exciting, you might be waiting some time before you get a bite, so take a good book, magazine, or even a laptop to play foxy bingo on while you wait. You’ll want something which can keep you entertained, without causing too much noise that might scare away a potential catch.

You will also need to stock up on bait or flies. Know what type of fish it is that you are hoping to catch, and find out what works best in attempting to attract them. You will also want to make sure you have the right type of hooks and lines to reel in your catch. For most places, you will need a license in order to be able to go fishing, so it is worth finding out whether or not this is the case and ensuring that your license is in date. After all, you don’t want to arrive at your chosen location, only to find that you have to head straight back home again.

Lastly, it is good to remember that fishing trips can easily be an all-day affair, so pack a few snacks to keep you going. If you’re fishing during the cooler weather, then it can be a good idea to take a flask of hot coffee or soup to help everyone stay warm. Have fun!
