2. Boat Fishing
When fishing in a boat, you will be looking for the fish nest and/or a slightly weeded areas in the waters. The fish generally lay their eggs and the nests can be visible in about April or May. You will want to fish these areas. Note: The male specks generally guard the nest. They are usually large in size about bigger than your hands or two hands together and they are quite aggressive. So they will hit your line and usually make an attempt to take the bait quite swiftly. They will pull your line like they are a gigantic fish. In fact, I love when they pull on the line. Reeling a fish in is very exciting. Although my husband and I basically fish for Specks, I also like Walleye, Bass, and other fish should they decide to bite. We fish with a variety of fishing baits including minnows, wax worms, and leaf worms. Remember to make sure you catch the fish in season, because certain times during the year, you can receive a fine for catching a fish out of season.
3. Hat and Days
The sun can become quite hot, if you are not in a shaded area, so be sure to wear a hat. You would not want to have a sunstroke. You can go online and check out when will be the best fishing days also. It will give you an idea about the best time of the day when the fish should be biting. This site is based on the phase of the moon. The sight is shown below:
