What is Freshwater Fishing

“Fishing is not an escape from life but often a deeper immersion into it.”

Freshwater fishing is a fun and exciting way to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you're reeling in a big bass or a feisty rainbow trout, there's nothing quite like the thrill of landing a fish. If you're new to freshwater fishing, here are a few things to know before you head out.

First, you'll need to purchase some gear. A good starter set-up includes a rod and reel, tackle, bait, and lures. You can find all of this gear at your local sporting goods store. Once you have your equipment, it's time to find a good spot to fish. You can find freshwater fish in ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams. When choosing a location, you must consider the type of fish you're hoping to catch. Different species of fish prefer different types of water. For example, bass prefers murky waters with lots of vegetation, while trout prefer clear, cold waters. Freshwater fish include trout, salmon, bass, and catfish.

If you're new to freshwater fishing, it's always a good idea to go with someone with experience. They can teach you the ropes and help you avoid making rookie mistakes. With some preparation and guidance, you'll be Freshwater fishing like a pro in no time!

Before you start fishing, getting a fishing license is essential. In most states, you can purchase a license online or at your local sporting goods store. Once you have your license, you're ready to start freshwater fishing!

Kayak Fishing Lake Erie | Paddle Tales

I love kayaking, and I love fishing. Combine the two, and you have a recipe for an amazing day. I'm excited because this is my first kayak fishing trip on Lake Erie, and it's also my first time pedaling instead of paddling my kayak. The hope is that it will be first time catching a monster Lake Erie pike and bass as well. I've hooked up with the right people for the job, as Bobby Maerz from Baer Fishing Adventures is taking me kayak fishing in the marsh around Long Point Bay in Southern Ontario's Norfolk County.
