PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 24, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The month of August is often regarded as a particularly tough one for anglers, both because of heat and humidity and also because fish can prove scarcer--but according to Bob Sloan, S3
founder and enthusiastic angler, there are some basic steps fishermen can take to get the most out of their August fishing tips. Bob Sloan is hardly alone in thinking so. A recent article
from The Ames Tribune reveals some key strategies for fishing at the end of the summer--and Bob Sloan, S3 founder, has released a new press statement, with his own thoughts on the subject.
"The summer months are often difficult for those of us who love to fish, but rather than packing up and waiting until the cooler autumn months, anglers can abide by some of these rules and strategies and really get the most out of end-of-the-summer fishing expeditions," remarks Bob Sloan, S3 founder, in his press statement.
Basic concerns of safety are paramount during the hot months of summer, something that the Ames Tribune article emphasizes. The article cautions anglers to wear sunscreen, to drink plenty of water, and to dress appropriately. "Bringing meals and plenty of water is important, as it ensuring that you dress in layers and that you've got some good boots on," Sloan remarks.
The article goes on to note that the final weeks of the summer tend to be a time when predator fish are out in high numbers. There is a lot of food in the water, the article says, and baitfish that were born in the spring are now at a size where they can be eaten by larger predators. "In many areas, gamefish really do not have to look very hard to find food," Sloan observes. "As this article makes clear, they really just have to open their mouths and little fish will filter in."
This is one of the things that makes August fishing so difficult, and yet it is also something that experienced anglers can use to their advantage. When there is a lot of food in the water, the article states, fishermen can find success by showing those fish something different from what they normally consume.
"Let's say you're fishing walleyes on a lake that has lots of perch, and many of those perch are in the 3- to 4-inch range -- perfect walleye food," the article states. "The walleyes see perch every day. I don't know if walleyes get tired of eating perch, but I've seen lots of times when a bait that looked nothing like a perch out-produced a bait that looked like a perch on a lake that had a strong perch population."
An additional tip from the article is to move through an area faster than one normally would, during the spring or summer months.
