This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – fan casting while shore fishing.

Hellooooooooooooooo AMFisHers !   This weeks AMFisH fshing vlog is about fan casting while shore fishing:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rCJswZNtiFk

We all started fishing from shore and I remember the struggle trying to figure out how to catch more fish, well fan casting is a great way to do just that.  

Instead of casting in the same spot try walking around the lake while making long casts in a fan pattern.  Picture a clock in front of you, first cast would be at 9 o’clock, second cast at ten o’clock, third cast at eleven o’clock and so on.

This is typically done with artificial baits BUT there is nothing stopping you from doing it with live bait, just spread the fan out a little more, example cast at 9 o’clock then at twelve o’clock and so on.

Fish are moving around which is why I say we should be moving around as well.   By fan casting you are covering as much water as you can and in that specific area you are covering a huge patch at a time, which could increase your chances at catching a few more fish.

Give this style of fishing a try, I use it from my boat every time and I can assure you that you will start to locate more fish.

Hope you found this video helpful!

Took a second to reblog this picture as it is a great shot that someone took of a great area to fish from shore!   Don’t walk by areas like this while shore fishing and not cast in a top water bait, give it a try and work it over all the vegetation with some really long casts to cover as much water as possible.

When you see water like this you can be confident there will be some fish below, these are great bass holding areas as well and various species of pan fish, who knows maybe even a big roaming pike!

Just be sure to give an area like this a try with top water baits like frogs or mice and even a texas rigged creature bait or worm.
