If you love fishing, you might want to explore trout fishing from a float boat. It is generally preferred for the areas where you cannot take a boat. For example, if you are fishing in the lake of backwoods. If this summer, you want to try it instead of the regular fishing you have to consider studying about it first. It is not easy and you should keep certain things in mind. After all, float tube isn’t preferred by everyone. Here are a few techniques that could help you out:
Choose the right tackle from the market.
You must carry the right equipments from the market which you are going to need during fishing. They all should be handy. Keep the GPS system, and in fact, fish finder with you so you are aware about where the schools of fish exactly is and how big they are. It will also help you know about the wind power and temperature. You can float in the tube accordingly and plan ahead.
Prepare the night before
You should know how you have to inflate your boat using the inflator. Check if the inflator has enough battery. You can inflate it the night before, so when you wake up in morning, you are aware that there are no leaks in the float tube.
Your dress up should keep you warm
Don’t think that you won’t feel cold in the middle of the lake. Wear thick wool socks and a knit cap. Although, you can avoid wearing gloves as they would get wet the minute you hop into the float boat, some way or the other. Keep a dry hand towel in your back pack, so you are comfortable while fishing.
You must have a good practice
Practice it in your pond or less shallow area of the lake so that you are confident enough. Practice placing your bait in water and leaning forward and backwards with it. You should be able to maneuver easily when you are trying to catch fish while on a float boat.
You should observe the water at all times. Rings in the water suggest how fish might be eating bugs. Keep in check weedlines, shallow regions and foam lines. These are sites where the hidden fishes go. Always be aware of the direction of the wind so you can manage to be around your target zone. Keep in mind that you should make slow and quiet beats as only that will help you break or make your momentum on the float boat.
Keep the sunlight as your approach
Trout fish is difficult to lure and feed when sunlight is there, except when the currents are pretty strong. Which is why you should always be careful about the shadows you are creating an then making the fish run away, even before you reach them.
