Off Season Fishing

Updated on May 7, 2011

Off Season Fishing Is More Affordable

If you are looking for ways to save money but still be able to go out and enjoy that fishing trip then maybe looking at the option of an off season fishing trip is the way to go.

I actually adore the thought of off season fishing trips because then the waters aren’t so over populated with fisher people. When you go in the off season almost all the services will be a lot more affordable. I am talking about such things as cabins, boat rentals and even guides. The merchants want to attract people as late into the season as possible and still earn a buck.

When we talk off season all regions are a bit different but for the most part it means from the end of summer to the beginning of winter. In most cases fishing is still very good except maybe when we are getting really close to winter. It is all about helping you keep some of your money in your wallet. Everyone will have their favourite times of the year for fishing and personally many of my favourite times do come after summer. A lot does have to do with the type of fish you are going after. I catch walleye every year right up until freeze up. In fact some of my best fishing days are the ones where the snow is blowing, my fingers are freezing and the tip of my rod needs the ice taken out on each cast. Bottom line is even after the so called busy season you can still get in a lot of good fishing for a much lower cost.

Of course once again just like anything it’s about the home work you are willing to do. You need to research off season fishing vacations and see what’s going to work best for you. You need to find such things as when prices start to drop, where the fish will still be most active and you need to know what your budget allows you to spend. As for reservations in the off season it is highly unlikely you will need them but just to make sure you should always call ahead. It just makes sense to make sure you will be saving the money you are hoping to. Just remember if too many people have the same idea as you the price will stay high so that’s why you want to do research and call ahead. The places you will need to contact are hotels, boat rental places and in some cases even restaurants. Take the time to try and understand what the weather will be like and also decide how long of a vacation you are going to take.

You need to remember that off season fishing trips can have a great variety of weather and you need to be prepared for it, especially when it comes to the cold.

If you want more of the water to yourself, you don’t mind getting a bit cold at times and you don’t mind catching different varieties of fish then a lower budget off season fishing trip is for you. While off season fishing may not be for everyone it can in many cases be the best fishing you ever experience. It’s just a matter of doing your home work and being prepared for what might hit you. Bottom line is always remember that a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.
