This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Fall fishing tips to catch more fish!

Hi fishing enthusiasts, fellow anglers and AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH is a short fishing tip video and more of a reminder to increase the size of your baits now that fall has arrived.

The fall feed is on, this is the time of year when all fish species put on their feeding bags and go to work! It’s a great time of year when fish start putting on weight, as they feed quite heavily throughout the week to increase their weight for the long winter months below the ice.

Fall by far is my most favorite time of year to fish, as your odds of catching that fish of a lifetime increase drastically! There will be a few tips on this post about fall fishing but the first one is to increase your bait size drastically. In the early spring and summer months we can get away with a mix of smaller and mid size baits, as bait fish will not have grown much from the time the hatched. By fall any bait fish that were lucky enough to have survived not being eaten will be at their largest size, in length, thickness and overall weight.

Bigger bait fish means using bigger baits! By increasing the size of any bait you have been using in the earlier months, you not only match the forage size of what the fish are more than likely feeding on at that time, but you also increase your chances of fooling the fish into thinking your bait is what they really eat!

Using bait sizes that match what fish are feeding on is critical and in the fall even more critical due to the fact that fish are gorging quite heavily and will be following their food sources around the lake. By using baits that are much larger than baits you have been using all summer long, you are sure to increase your fall fish catch percentage by more than 70%!

This is by far the most valuable fall fishing tip I can share with all of you and as you can clearly see in this video the sizes In increase to with my baits are a few levels above the normal bait size and that is the key part of this video to focus on.

As fall progresses you will need to revisit this tip once the water temperature drops further, as fish will require a lot more time to digest what they have eaten recently, so there may be outings where the big baits are not working and you need to downsize drastically to a much smaller bite size bait to get them to bite. The fish will always tell us what they want and how they want it, so you should always stay connected to this part and react accordingly to what they are telling you.

Start with increasing the size of the baits you have been using recently and from there assess what kind of bites you are getting from fish along with how many fish you are catching. In these earlier fall months it is hard for fish to pass up a nice big juicy looking meal so “GO BIG” for now and watch what happens!

Hope you found this video helpful…tight lines this fall everyone!

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Kayak lake tour & the benefits of fishing in a kayak.

Hi AMFisHers! This AMFisH  fishing vlog is a short kayak lake tour video that I wanted to share with all of you. This blog post covers some advantages of fishing in a kayak, that truly do expose you to a entirely new way of fishing waters you may not have been able to access before.

I have mainly fished from shore and in boats my entire life and a few years ago I decided to purchase a fishing kayak to tackle fishing in a completely different way than I had ever done before.

What I can tell you in my eyes opened up to the surplus of water I could get into and fish that I could never do before from shore or in a boat. In this video you will see I have paddled into a small cover that is about 8 to 10 inches deep, with a lot of great spots to find a bass sunning itself. When you see me paddle back out into the deeper water, you will understand that trying to get in this area from shore or in a boat is next to impossible. Does it make fishing this area from a boat totally impossible? No it does not but it makes it much more complicated. Sitting out in the deeper water and casting into the cove with not being able to see clearly as to what I am casting to, will only result in spooking any fish in the cove.

The advantages of fishing from a kayak are quite high to any angler, I mean look at things like being able to drop in almost anywhere on a lake, zero gas expense to operate the kayak, accessing water on the lakes you fish, where fish may not have even seen a bait before, these things alone are enough to have me signing up for kayak fishing!

I have accessed some very remote areas on lakes I fish that I could never find a way to access before, this is where my eyes opened up to an entirely new world of fishing. Being able to paddle into a spot that is merely inches deep is quite amazing if you ask me and catching fish you have never caught in those remote areas is even more amazing! Fishing from a kayak has allowed me to add several new spots to my fishing spot list on the waters I fish that I had always struggled to find a way to fish in the past.

I would recommend doing your homework on what kayak will suit your needs best, as there are a lot to choose from with various pros and cons to each. There will be a link in the video screen that will take you to a previous kayak video I shot, that goes over key items you should consider while looking at fishing kayaks and I suggest you give that a watch to help you along.

Kayak fishing is quite an inexpensive way to keep yourself on the water, which explains why it has been picking up a lot more popularity over the last couple of years! If you are looking for a challenging new way to fish or are just looking for a better option to shore fishing, consider getting yourself into a fishing kayak that will allow you to fish more efficiently and be more affective on your outings.

Hope you found this video helpful and feel free to contact me should you have any questions about kayak fishing or to review your kayak fishing needs further.
