Planning Your Fishing Trip!

December 22nd, 2009 | by admin |

Fishing can be relaxing, fun and be a joy for all who choose to take part in one of nature’s most premier activities. However, fishing can often turn stressful and tough when it comes to planning out your travel and fishing plans. Planning the perfect fishing trip doesn’t have to be difficult, but it has to be prepared. Here is a quick guide to ensuring you take the best efforts in planning your fishing trip!

? Start by defining what you want your trip to be like! Every fisher wants something different or personalized about their fishing trip so make sure you have a definition of what a great fishing trip means to you. Maybe you want a relaxing week-end at a campsite; maybe you want a busy schedule of hunting combined with fishing and hiking; or maybe you want to spend all of your time on the river. It doesn’t matter what you are looking for, just make sure you know!

? What fish do you want to catch?! If you are serious about your fishing trip then you probably have an ideal fish that you would like to tackle. Think about it. Would you like to go after a fish species you have never caught before? Would you like to just catch as many ‘ordinary’ fish as possible? Whatever type of fish you want to catch will determine the location of your trip, so choose wisely!

? Figure out your style! No, we’re not talking about style as in fashion and clothing; we’re talking about fishing style! Fishing style means what type of fishing you wish to do- wading into the river, deep sea fishing or fishing from the river side. If you are going on your trip with a group make sure they all agree on the fishing style because if they don’t, there’ll be plenty of quiet time for them to complain!

? How much is this going to cost?! While most fishers don’t want to consider cost, it is usually the most important overall factor of a fishing trip! Ideally, you may want to head to the Colorado Mountains and find a remote river set apart from society- and just stay there for days! However, this won’t work for most people working within a budget because the longer and more extravagant a fishing trip is, the more expensive it tends to get!

The perfect fishing trip really isn’t out of reach, it is within your preparation!

    Well, it’s still hardwater season up where I am.. and I am not a big fan of camping in the – temperatures…. I think I will more than likely plan my first big fishing trip of the year for early May.

    I can’t wait to get out on the open water again.. Ice fishing is great, but nothing beats getting a tan while doing something you love!!

    Well, this is what I get for getting my favorite fishing partner into alligators… we can barely sneak away for a day, it’s either too windy to go fishing or there’s big lizards to catch. I’ve taken to leaving my little Greenwater rig in the back of his truck and having some lures on hand, but we haven’t really gone fishing for fish in a while… making a couple casts for bass here and there isn’t really fishing as far as I’m concerned… and the gators are just gonna get more active… *sigh* maybe I’ll make him take up most of his baits when I take maternity leave…

    Oh well…
