If you’ve ever had trouble patterning fish or struggled to remember how you caught fish last year, this post is for you! We’ve all been there, you wake up feeling a little too confident and decide to just “wing it”. After all, you “whacked ‘em” last year. Little do you realize, you only “whacked ‘em” on sunny days before the fish went prespawn, and unfortunately… spring came early this year. The extra pep in your step quickly disappears as you settle into a tough day on the water, finding that fish aren’t where you had expected. Luckily, situations like this are avoidable. High caliber fisherman across the country employ this tactic to pattern fish and plan their days fishing.
This is just one, simple, tactic to improve you’re fishing. The best way to improve will always be time spent on the water, keeping records only helps you get the most out of those precious hours.
