I've learned that my chances of catching a fish are dramatically reduced or improved by a variety of factors. Time of year, time of day, and tide are my top three. Every species of fish is more active during certain times of the year than others. Learning which time that is is fairly easy with a little research. Bass for example make their way shallow to spawn in the spring. As a result, most anglers ...

Fishing Report
