Remove the tail from your bait before putting it on the hook if you're fishing with shad. This helps to keep your bait from twisting around the line as it travels to the bottom, which avoids the problem of it getting tangled. A beneficial side effect of this procedure is that cutting the tail causes the bait to emit a scent that causes fish to make a beeline for your bait.


Wear sunscreen. Even if the day is not too hot, you still need the protection. Many times the sun beams down hard over water and you want to make sure that you do not get a pretty bad sunburn while you are out there.


If you are a beginner to the sport, or are using a catch that is new to you, go along with someone who has the right experience. They'll show you what to avoid and give you good tips.

When you've hooked a large fish and it tries to escape, stay calm. As the fish is swimming away, avoid reeling it in. Try to relax and allow the drag and your rod do all the work. After the hook is in the fish, adjust your drag so you can reel in the fish. Aiming your rod down and in the direction of the fish while reeling it in will ensure you do not break your rod.


Be sure to always have a first aid kit with you when you go fishing. Believe it or not, fishing can cause injuries, some more serious than others. That is why it is so important for you to be prepared, should an accident occur while you were on the water.
