Where should you fish?
What should you fish with?
But the most important question of all for catching more fish….WHY you should fish where you do and with what you do. The why is the most important question to understand and find the answer for simply because with the why, your fishing successes can become repeatable. All because you understand why the fish are where they are, and eat what they eat at specific times of day, month and year.
All of these questions will be explored and answered within the pages of this site.
“Give a child a fish, and they’ll eat for a day. Teach a child how to fish, and they’ll eat for a lifetime.”
At the same time we hope to provide you with supreme fishing tips and increase your fishing knowledge to help you on the lakes and rivers, our goal is to also remind you about and help you learn from the greatest fisherman of all, Jesus Christ.
The following passage from John 21 is a bit of inspiration for this website…inspiration that will lead us to the fish, and more importantly, lead us to Jesus Christ and everlasting life….where in heaven, certainly the fishing will be better.
3 “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
5 He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”
“No,” they answered.
6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
Life is full of challenges and triumphs, and to help you stay on an even keel, you’ll need to keep the ups and downs in perspective. Next time you’re having trouble finding the fish, ask Jesus to help you find them. At the very least, throw your line out on the right side of the boat. Fishing has always been a sport enjoyed out in nature, and God offers us the greatest venue in which to practice and enjoy our craft or hobby.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
– Jesus Christ
So as you go about putting these fishing tips and fishing techniques to the test, keep in mind that our God – the supreme being – makes it all possible.
