Hey, you're in the hobby / travel zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Fishing Category

Hobby / Travel:

"Home" objects of any body of water by which fish tend to harbor.

Guide:

Like other living beings, such as humans, fish go where they feel most comfortable and find convenient:  Fish make themselves at home near objects at a body of water where their hunger is satisfied and the ambient temperature is ideal for them.  These common fish-sanctuary objects include the following:

  • Docks.  Like the other objects listed here, docks are great attractions to fish.  Fish use docks for shelter, a launching point from which to subtly attack prey, and just as a place that can screen the sunlight.  It is highly likely that fish are, therefore, around docks, and one should strive to fish around there first.

  • Shoals (i.e., below-water-surface piles of gravel/rocks/ground) and islands.  Just as with docks, shoals and islands attract fish of all sizes.  Such objects provide shelter for fish and other fish utilize the area as a place to find their prey--smaller fish, usually.  Shoals can be identified to be just below the water by already deployed buoys, which are originally placed there to have boats steer clear of hitting such objects.  It is highly likely that fish are, therefore, around shoals and islands, and one should strive to fish around there first.

  • Weeds.  Your first instinct may be to steer clear of weeds when finishing, but you can't be more wrong in that assessment.  Weeds are just as much of an attraction to

     

    fish than any of the other fish-alluring objects; this is especially true of weeds that are bright green, as they produce an ample amount of oxygen that get the attention of baitfish.  With baitfish in the vicinity of weeds, there are surely bigger fish to prey on such small baitfish.  Though when casting your reel in the vicinity of weeds, be sure to use a fish hook that is less likely to be snagged by the weeds, such as long, jig-headed, single-hooked spinner hooks, or even weedless hooks that are specifically designed to lessen the incidence of weed snags, and, thus, in the long run, save you money.

So, when you're fishing, seek the above objects out and fish there; don't steer clear of them, embrace these fish sanctuaries!
