3 Tips to Help Anyone Catch More Fish


In this article I’m going to outline 3 tips to help anyone catch more fish. These tips come from more than 50 years of combined fishing experience and can be employed by any angler. No matter what type of fishing you prefer, these tips will help you enjoy more fishing success. None of us should ever forget what Steven Wright said about fishing, “There’s a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.” I’m not sure any truer words have ever been spoken and with any luck this article will help you avoid that latter part of that quote.

If you want to catch more fish there is nothing that helps like practice. There is simply no substitute for spending time on the water practicing your craft. The next closest thing to practice for becoming a better angler is to study your craft (which is what you’re doing by reading this article). The more tips and techniques you can get the better. Some will work for you, some won’t, but the point is that educating yourself is never a bad thing.

So, let’s get down to business, shall we? Here are the 3 tips that will help you become a better angler, and thus catch more fish.

  1. Pay Attention To Your Hands – Your hands are very important to fishing, or more specifically the scents that are on your hands. Any scents that are on your hands will transfer to whatever bait or lure you’re using. If this scent is unnatural to the fish they will tend not to bite. This might not be true for smaller, more inexperienced fish, but for larger experienced fish this rule is most certainly true. We want to make be sure that our hands are free of any unnatural odors. The easiest way to accomplish this is by grabbing a handful of grass of dirt and rubbing it into your hands before handling your bait or lure.
  2. Pay Attention To Mother Nature – Mother Nature has an amazing impact on the feeding behavior of fish. When I use the term ‘Mother Nature’, I’m referring specifically to the weather and moon. By knowing when the weather and moon, or one of the two is in your favor as an angler is of the utmost importance. If you’ve ever had one of those epic days fishing where it seemed like you could do no wrong, it was more than likely due to these two forces of Mother Nature, rather than your prowess as an angler. Learn about the weather & moon and the ways they affect fishing, and you’ll start catching more fish.
  3. Pay Attention To Your Eyes – Having a quality pair of polarized glasses is a tip that can help any angler catch more fish. In the flowing waters of a river or stream polarized glasses are a must, not only for seeing the fish, but also seeing your line. Any bass fisherman who has fished for spawning bass knows exactly what I’m referring to as well. Pay attention to your eyes by getting yourself a pair of quality polarized sun glasses. With polarized glasses, like most things remember: you get what you pay for.
