Most of my hubs are fishing. That is a start. Look online and find the local fishing clubs in your area or ask at your local tackle shop where some of the clubs are. Also find some of online fishing websites with major message boards. You can find tutorials or nothing beats local reports. Look up your state dept of fish and wildlife to see what fish are available and the seasons in your area.
All a novice fisherman needs is a hook and hotdogs. Thats all me and my brothers had. If they like fishing they will find a way. Any person fishing will not be afraid to help someone out, including bait shops, they want your business.
