Very Simple Basic Steps
thing you will need is a Fishing
KEEPING IT SIMPLE
you need is a fishing rod
and reel, a small spool of fishing
line (6 to 8 pound test), a couple of
shot sinkers (BB size), and some hooks
(size 2 up to size 3/0).
Prepare your rod and reel for the day of fishing. Make sure all parts are in working order.
Match a hook to the bait. 3/0 hook for large worms and a 1/0 for minnows. Tie the hook to the end of your line using a knot that won't slip. See Our Page on Knots for different types of knots.
Now you are ready to go fishing.
After baiting your hook, attach the bobber above the hook (two feet for starters). Lower the hook into the water until the bobber floats. Hold your pole steady.
wait for the fish to bite.
When your bobber goes completely under water, set the hook. This is done by raising the pole quickly. Reel in the fish with care.
Once the fish is landed, handle it with care. Most fish don't have sharp teeth but may have spiny fins. Hold the fish firmly and remove the hook. Needle-nose pliers may be needed.
This is a good time to get a picture of your catch.
