Article Body:
I also like to call this list ten things my Dad taught me about fishing.
Fishing has always been an important part of my life. My Dad used to take
me fishing all the time, in fact, “take a kid fishing” was a rule he
lived by. He showed me how to fish, the best bait to use while fishing,
and methods to catch more fish. Sure this list isn’t everything you need
to know about fishing but using these basic techniques will insure you to
have a “good day fishing.”

1. Always set the hook properly. Make sure your fish is hooked before you
start reeling.

2. Keep steady pressure on the fish. Don’t give the fish a chance to
spit out the lure or bait. Keep your line taut with no slack and keep the
rod tip out of the water. You need to keep reeling to make sure the
pressure is steady and the line is straight out to the fish.

3. Make sure your line is not wrapped around the tip of the rod. If it
becomes twisted around the rod you will not be able to control your
reeling and it may break the line.

4. The jig is one of most effective fish catching lures to use. Jigs are
good for fishing from the shoreline to deep water. They can be used on
farm ponds, lakes, rivers and reservoirs. They catch everything from
bluegills, crappies and perch to walleyes, smallmouth bass and northern
pike. My Dad’s favorite was using a feathered jig tipped with a mealworm.
We caught all kind of fish with that in all kinds of water.

5. Make sure to use your drag and that it is working properly. Using the
drag will help you maintain control over the fish.

6. Cast your bait near structure whenever you can. If you can, bring
along a contour map of the body of water you’re fishing. Fish like to
hang around logs, rocks and docks whether the structure is under the
water or sticking out of the water. Casting next to a weed bed should
produce fish also.
7. Try to use live bait that is matched to what the fish usually feed on.
If you present the fish with what they’re looking for you are much more
likely to catch fish.

8. Take care of your fishing equipment. Keep your hooks sharp and ready
to hook the big one. Change your line frequently to prevent breakage.
Keep your reel oiled so that it turns easily.

9. Start fishing on the bottom and work your way to the surface. Once you
catch a fish, try to keep your bait at that depth and just move around
until you find where they are hiding. Keep moving until you start
catching fish. Keep repeating the procedure. Bluegill, perch, crappie,
white bass and black bass are all schooling fish. This means that there
are more than one fish swimming around. Once you find them, you will
usually catch a bunch.

10. Always keep your bait moving. Jig it, pop it, reel it. Whatever it
takes to make it look alive. Fish love live bait.

Hope these tips offer you as many good fishing days as I have had.
