Fishing is always a great idea during the dry season. When everybody goes on vacation because of the summer days, going to the nearby river or creek is the best and productive way to spend the afternoon with families and friends. Though fishing requires time and yes, spending it in the same vicinity for hours just to get a satisfying catch is important; fishing builds bonds and of course, improves your love and personal skills in fishing on your own.
Days that are far from winter, the dry season is a fine time to teach yourself what to try for fishing. You can try a new rod, line, hook or bait without worrying about the after-effect of the weather. Fishing gears that you have been dying to use since winter can all be tried on for the very first time during summer. But that is not only what is fun during summer fishing. And to emphasize that, summer fishing can’t be entirely fun when you have many bugs and insects surrounding you.
You can do your best to prevent yourself from being bitten or stung by these creatures because there are some which, when bothered, could really get angry. And you wouldn’t want to mess with the likes of hornets and wasps. Carry an insect repellent if you need to just in case you find yourself in an area where there are more of them than the fish that you are aiming to catch. Mosquitoes can become quite a “bug” when you go out fishing. Wear something that will cover your arms but not to the extent that could match to the heat of the summer days.
But despite the strange company you have during fishing, summer is still a great time as there are many baits you can use. Worms, crickets, grasshoppers, and even frogs can all be used as bait for fishing. Worms most especially, are great to find and these wriggling creatures are good baits. If you have selected the right type of worms, you will have more catches than the other anglers in the same area. You have to find the right places though where these earth creatures thrive.
Whether you get good baits and more catch, summer days are long and it would matter more if you have fun while fishing.
