Comments: _After several very hot days, the water level seems too low in the front pond. It hasn’t rained in about 3 weeks.  Nothing is biting in spite of using live bait (grasshoppers and worms) and several lures.

~*~

By making notes about the conditions, date and time, etc., I’m creating a knowledge-base to increase my chances of being a successful angler.

I’m not trying to rely on my memory. By spending 5 minutes on a pre-printed form, I can look back and learn from my experiences.

This is a rather puny example; however ….  When conditions are very dry & very hot (and the pond is muddy), it doesn’t matter what I offer, the fish don’t bite in this particular pond.

  2. Dear “Fishing Trips @ Ultimate Fishing Vacations — Everything You Need To Know About Fishing Trips,”

    Thanks for posting my article on your site! I appreciate the fact that you thought your readers would be interested in something I had to say about fishing.

    In the next few days, I’ll be posting a “Fishing Log” Sample for taking notes on your catches. In another post, I’ll explain how barometric pressure affects fishing conditions. In the coming days, I’ll share some tips on creating your own(inexpensive) “fish attractor.”

    In order to be more successful as an angler, it is important to understand how fish use their senses. I’ll share some tips here and then offer info regarding specific fish species and where to find them and what bait to use.

    Hope you will find reason to return to my blog in the coming days!

    Best wishes,
    Marylouise

  4. Dear Fishing Videos,

    Thank you for sharing this article with your readers/viewers. Today’s article is how barometric pressure affects fish and fishing. Later this week, I’ll have the “Fish Log” ready.

    Keeping a “Fishing Log” (info about fishing conditions, location, season, etc.) and a “Fish Log” (fish caught, where, size, bait used, etc.) are 2 of the best ways I’ve been able to increase my fishing success.

    To your fishing success,
    Marylouise
