What is the best time to start fishing?
In summer, the best times of day to fish are early morning and late evening.
In the spring and fall, it's best around dusk.
In the southern parts of the U.S., you can often catch fish year-round, so winter is still a good time to fish. In other colder climates, wintertime is a good time for ice fishing.
If you’re near the beach, check the tidal schedule and go out when the tides are changing. Fish move in greater numbers during tidal shifts.
Be wary of cold fronts and heavy rain, since these can limit your chances of making a catch. Always check the weather report before the trip.
Also, keep in mind that these are only for general tips, different species of fish have varying activity patterns. It helps to know what fish you’re after so you can get specific about your rigs, baits and lures, as well as fishing locations and times.
