Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Always bait your hook the right way to avoid losing bait. This is especially critical when fishing with live bait including worms. The generally accepted technique for setting live bait is threading the hook laterally through the worm. This prevents the worm from sliding off the hook. Make sure you are properly prepared for your day of fishing. Take along the necessities, of course, and a few luxuries as well. They will make your fishing trip much more enjoyable. Don’t underestimate the advantages of being ill-prepared in ruining your chances in fishing. If you want to take a photograph of your fish before releasing it, make sure that it happens as quickly as possible. A fish kept out of water for a long time will not live. Prior to going fishing, check the weather. You will not be as prepared, if you aren’t aware of what the weather is like. You do not want to be stuck if the weather gets bad. To be safe, check the weather before going out, and better yet, bring a weather radio with you.
It’s a good idea to take only what you need for the day’s fishing in your tackle box. Lugging your huge tackle box with every piece of equipment you have ever bought is unnecessary and cumbersome. If you just bring your essentials, you will be able to move more freely when you are at your fishing spot.
