Fishing, Hunting Tips From The Pros
Spring Weed Fishing- Dean Capra of the ProGear by Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory Team says you can find many more fish in the spring if you remember a little school lesson about plants. Remember that plants emit oxygen. Therefore, if you find new submerged weed growth, fish it, because it is probably emitting oxygen into the water and is therefore probably holding fish. Don’t overlook decaying vegetation, either. Dead vegetation generates heat and will attract fish when the water’s cold, even if the oxygen content of that water is lower.
Before you decide where to set up to shoot doves, hang back and observe the flight patterns of the birds. As Larry Bozka of the ProGear by Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory Team points out, on any given day flights of dove will tend to enter the field from the same direction and from the same area. They will also fly over the field and exit in the same way as earlier flights. So don’t second-guess ‘em. Wait until you’ve established the pattern of the day before setting up. Conservation note: No matter how good the shooting, never set up in a spot that allows hit birds to fall in thick brush or other terrain that makes finding them difficult.
Slow Poke Fishing
Retired outdoor writer Bodie McDowell has been a press observer at 22 BassMaster Classics. We asked Bodie, “What’s the single biggest thing that separates the men from the boys in the world of bass fishing?” It’s lure speed, says Bodie, a member of the ProGear by Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory team. “A slower retrieve is the key to more fish, even with top water lures,” said Bodie. “Patience is rewarded. I’ve seen pros make a cast then stop to open a can of Coke before beginning their retrieve. Then, with the first crank of the reel, bam!”
Waypoint Your Blind
Hunters are finding lots of neat ways to use their handheld Global Positioning System units. Texan Larry Bozka of the ProGear by Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory Team uses his GPS to mark his blind so when he comes back in the dark of the morning he can find it. “I have to admit, I’ve lost a lot of valuable hunting time in years past because I couldn’t find my blind in the dark,” said Bozka. Here’s another tip. GPS units are extremely helpful for finding coveys of quail that you’ve seen the day before. Bobwhites tend to return to the same locations. Mark them on day one. Find them again on day two.
