"How to catch a fish"

I  guess the question is what kind of fish are you trying to catch? 

I have mostly caught  crappies, blue gill, sun fish and catfish.

you will need fishing tacle supplies, such as rod and reel or a bambo fishing pole.

Live bait such as worms , crickets and  beef liver if you want to catch catfish.

Your fishing line will already be attached to the rod and reel or the fishing pole, and all you will have to do is put the bait on the hook.  If you're women and sweamish  about putting worms on the hook, then you really don't want to fish.

I wasn't fishinfg for the sport of fishing, I would fish because; I like to eat the fish that I brought home with me. Some women arent't fisherman like me,  I liked to fish especially when I  would feel the fish get on the rod  and reel or the pole. Catching a fish was a natural high for me, because it meant more fish on my plate.

My husband and I bought fishing rods, but mines was the only that got used.  I use to fish down on lake LBJ in Burnet, Texas by myself, and the last time went; I caught 38 blue gill and sun fish; which was alright with me, because I like to eat them.  Now, if you want to know some pointers on how to catch a  fish:  Here's what you do:

Go down to the lake and find you a comfortable spot to sit, take you worm out of he container and slip the hook through the top of the head of the worm, and run the hook all the way to the end; make sure the end of the hook isn't showing.

cast your rod out as far as you can,  and throw into the water;  and make it move around a little, to get the fishes attention. Then once you get a bite, do not jerk your fishing rod or pole out of the water because you'll lose your fish off the rod or pole,  you're holding; make sure you pull your rod or pole up slowly to make sure the fish is still on your fishing line. then bring  it onto the bank, and put the fish in the net and carefully take it off, the fishing line and put in you cooler.

If you're using worms with sucess, then you might want to try live crickets, they work good sometimes, it depends on what the fish wants. you all ways give the fish what they want ,so you can catch them and bring them home to your skillet.

If  you want to try for the catfish, you can get a small piece of beef liver and secure  it on the hook, and cast your line out; and see if you can catch yourself a catfish, but if  you catch a catfish ; make sure you take plyers with you, so can break off the atennas or you might get stab with them. I'm not into catfishing as much as I am with the crappie, blue gill and sun fish.

This information alone should help you to catch a few fish , and have some fun fishing time. I love to go fishing when ever I get a chance too go; it always make my day especailly; if have some fish to show for it.

      Nice fishing hub! I've only been fishing four times in my life, but each time was memorable. My favorite fishing memory was fishing on a lake in Canada!
