MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.

- The wind pushes bait fish and other food into shore shorelines.
If fishing from a boat, cast with the wind on sheltered shorelines.
If fishing from shore, find spots with wind blowing in and make your cast into the wind.

- Hennepin Marine wishes to remind us that boating season is at its busiest.
With all the boat traffic, this would be a Good time to review the rules of navigating a boat.
They recommend the
highlights & helpful illustrations from BoatUS

- Many anglers are making the move to spinning reels as they are great for making long casts
with smaller lures and with today´s finesse techniques. However, spinning reels can develop loops
and line twist problems. Try these tips for PREVENTING SPINNING REEL PROBLEMS.

- Fishing along key edges make for some of the best fishing during this month or two.
Edges give us a starting point to fish, a place where fish are most likely to be.
The key to good fishing is learning to fish the edges and you will find that
in summer the deeper outer edges are best during the day and/or when weather is unstable.
But the shallow weed edges are best when weather is stable and in mornings or evenings.
Here are some Tips for FISHING WEED EDGES

- Introduce kids to the fun of fishing TAKING KIDS FISHING - Tips

"Daddy, Mommy (Grandpa, Grandma) I caught one"

  - Fish Facts:   1938 - George Mason convinces Dow Corning to manufacture a new kind of fishing line using the polymer Saran
(commonly used in plastic wrap). The new product is called Monofilament Spinning Line,
and though stiff and prone to coiling, is widely considered an improvement
over the braided linen, silk and cotton lines of the day..

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.
