How to Improve your Fishing SkillsAuthor: Captain Mike Gerry | Posted: 03/11/2012
Most people hit the water with a few presentations, and a few baits that they are really comfortable with! I can't say as I blame them but you can't make yourself a better fisherman and improve your skills by just being a worm fisherman or a jig fisherman. Today's skill sets have to be wide and versatile. The lakes are getting way too much pressure, and the bass are all too accustom to the fisherman that does the same thing the same way every time they fish.
The best way to improve your fishing is to become proficient and confident at presenting a wide cast of baits. If you have bait or lure that you just do not have confidence in then take that out and fish until you do! Read some tips about the bait, understand the presentation, picture the bait in your head catching a fish! Believe it or not being able to envision how that bait works in the water and see it drop or move in your mind will help you get better at presenting it! One of the first things I tell an inexperienced fisherman when I am teaching him how to catch a fish is to envision the bait moving then cast it out and make it do what your mind tells you it should look like.
The next thing that falls in the same category as lure presentation expansion is the ability to take the same bait and present it several different ways and catch fish on each presentation. What people do not always think about is many times the weather plays a role in what you can do with your bait. The wind changes the bait, as does the current or the sun and more, if you can make the same bait do different things your catching ability goes up considerably.
