-- Bank fishing is how many individuals, as kids or adolescents, first learn to love the great sport of fishing--but, according to Bob Sloan S3
founder and fishing enthusiast, bank fishing is more than mere child's play. While standing on the bank of a pond and dropping a line can prove a relaxing way to socialize, to spend time outside, and perhaps to catch some fish, as well, there are strategies one can implement to ensure that it truly brings in a good haul. A recent Wired2Fish article reveals five of the most essential bank fishing tips--and Bob Sloan, S3 partner, has offered his comments on them via a new press statement.
"Many men and women have positive associations with bank fishing, perhaps because it instilled in them a lifelong love of angling," Sloan says, in his new press statement. "Others love bank fishing because it reminds them of quality time spend with dad, or with cousins or friends. The question is, how can grown-ups who still love to bank fish get the best hauls of fish?"
Wired2Fish offers a few pointers, beginning with an admonishment to wear dark clothing. While this is not necessarily the most comfortable way to attire oneself, in the hot summer months, it can pay off big dividends--especially when the targeted fish is a shallow bass. The article speculates that many fish, including bass, have better eyesight than people assume, and as such, they can see colorful shapes and figures along the water's edge--and, in many cases, this keeps them from coming to the surface or from taking the bait.
"Dressing in darker clothes is an important way to be stealthy," Bob Sloan states.
The second tip from the article is to cast one's line from as far away from the water as possible. Walking right up to the edge of the bank often results in a number of fish scattering away--never a sight that anglers wish to see. "Again, trying to remain stealthy can pay off in a big way," notes Bob Sloan, S3 partner and fishing buff.
A third tip from Wired2Fish is to begin the day with more subtle, finessing techniques--something that is at odds with the more conventional advice to begin more aggressively. Wired2Fish notes that beginning more subtly can pay off when the fish are pond bass. "Pond bass are much different than big lake bass because in most cases they're much less pressured," the article states. "These pond bass aren't used to having loud, shiny and intrusive baits whiz past their faces and in many cases they'll get spooked by these louder presentations."
The article's fourth tip is to keep the bait in the strike zone for as long as possible. This requires an understanding of the proper angling techniques, which may be different from those used by boat-borne fishermen.
The article's final tip is to look out for environmental cues. Wind and share are specially noted as markers for particularly good areas of a pond in which to cast a line.
