5 Tips for Making the Most of Your Time On the Water

5 Tips for When You Have Limited Time for Fishing

Whether it’s a busy schedule that limits the amount of time you have to get out on the water and cast lines, or you are going on a short trip and want to make the most of your fishing vacation, these tips can help you maximize your fishing fun. Whether it’s using a fishing shirt for men that will help you stay out longer or making sure everything is packed and ready to go, here are some ways you can have fun fishing when your time is limited.

Invest in Specialized Fishing Shirts

One problem faced when fishing is the hot sun bearing down on you. Whether it’s the heat or the potential of sunburn, the sun can be a large part of cutting off your already short fishing time. Long sleeve fishing shirts can help you stay out with moisture-wicking fabric, helping you stay cool and dry, whether you are out on a boat or the banks of a river. You also want a fabric that is rated UPF 50+ as it will block 98% of UVA and UVB rays, helping protect you against sunburns. Both of these help you stay out longer, which is especially useful if you are on a trip and are trying to make the most of the location while you are there. 

Change Lures and Change Spots

If the fish are not biting, you might be wasting your time. First, try changing lures. If that doesn’t work, and you’ve given the spot 20 or 30 minutes, it’s time to move on. If you are getting hits on the line, you can stay where you are, but don’t waste time on a spot where there are no bites, or you are only getting small fries.

Go Light on the Gear

If you are going to be moving around, be sure to go light on gear. If you have plenty of time to fish, bring three rods, and switch them out. But if you are maximizing your short time at a lake or stream, only bring one rod, and don’t bring equipment that will weigh you down unnecessarily. This way, you can move quickly when going from spot to spot without lugging too much around. 

Plan Ahead and Do Your Homework

Plan ahead and know where you are going to start. Have a backup plan in case it’s already too crowded with other anglers. Also, know which spots you are going to head to next. Do your homework if possible, and know where fish are often biting when you are fishing. If it’s already hot out, for example, larger bass will be lower in the water where it is cooler.

Slow It Down

While it sounds counterintuitive, slow down and enjoy fishing. If you hurry too much, you won’t have fun, trying to pack too much in. Slow down, enjoy the cast, and relax.
