Years ago, this webauthor was privileged to live by a large fresh-water lake in the upper Midwest, during which years he was able to do a significant amount of fishing.
Accordingly, he has experience and information he believes is rather trustworthy and beneficial to all you anglers and would-be anglers out there in cyberspace.
In the spring, it is best to fish shallow near the shore. A heavy sinker attached to the line is not necessary that time of year. When fishing during autumn, however, the opposite is true, being that fish are closer to the lake bottom and a heavier line sinker is helpful. The sinkers in both cases should be the ones with rubber twisters at both ends.
Using 6-lb.-test monofilament line will get you more fish on the line, but you will lose more with such light test. 8-lb. test is preferable, and without using a leader connected to the lure.....although, again, you will lose fish if you don't use a leader, being that fish frequently bite off the line as they grab the lure.
It is best to have clean hands - without gas, oil, or any other noticeable smell - when handling all lines, lures, and bait to attract fish.
A number of fishermen troll far too fast for most fish, with the exception perhaps of northern pike. A small and noiseless electric trolling motor is best to approach fish silently without scaring them, and avoid making such noise in the boat as stomping on the floor or hitting the sides of the boat, especially if you have a stringer of lively fish you have already caught.
Live bait, especially small and not larger minnows, fish can promptly grab (along with the whole hook) at once without having to try to slowly suck them in. Frogs can be used for a number of game fish. Worms are great for bass, and tiny minnows for crappies. If an artificial lure is used, both a Rappala and Lazy Ike are somewhat effective (and more effective than spoons) for game fish.
Still-fishing during daytime sunlight in a weedbed is a good place to get sunfish and perch. Make sure you hook your nightcrawler worms on a small-enough-curve hook with a long-enough shank, so that the sunfish and perch with small mouth openings do not merely nibble your bait off a large hook they can't get into their mouths. The long shank on the hook is useful in cases where the small fish swallow the hook, to prevent the delay and bloody mess it takes to rip a deeply-swallowed hook out of their throats.
Secure your fishing pole line with a minnow on it on a dock overnight and by morning a bullhead might be attached.
Fishing near a sandbar is a favorite area for walleyes. On windy days, it is possible to not drop anchor when trolling in a boat, but rather let the boat quietly drift over sandbar areas for such fish.
If you get a seemingly-quick but then constant pull on your line while trolling, you have probably caught a snagbass (i.e. weed), and it is best to reel in and remove the fish-frightening weed from the lure. If you get a nibble, do not jerk the bait out of the fish's mouth: let it take the bait, and then hook it. If you get a slight or greater tug on the line, and the line is then tugged in gentle or more forceful jerks, you probably have a fish on. With light monofilament line, do not horse the fish in...let the fish take it, although keep the line firm and hold your rod up and not sideways, as you gradually reel the fish as the fish's action allow. Again, keep the line taut, but not so tight as to pull the lure out of the fish's mouth nor break the line, especially if it suddenly dives.
Have a large-enough net on hand for the bigger fish.
During summer, it is typical to troll out about 25-70 feet from shore in water depth of 12 or more feet deep. If there are beachhouses, lakehomes, watercraft, swimmers, and sunbathers along the shore, study the architecture and variety, but watch out for protruding docks and approaching watercraft when trolling. Never drink alcoholic beverages so much as to get drunk while boating. Wear sunscreens on the face, nose, and neck areas with a light-cotton long-sleeved shirt to avoid sunburn and melanoma skin cancer. Hats help prevent sunstroke. Sit on a life-preserver cushion, and keep noisy radios off.
To me, it makes little sense to immediately throw back trophy-sized fish which can be eaten. If, however, you fish in a polluted lake, it is much better to eat fish from the grocer's meat counter.
In the New Testament, God through Paul stated that He likes things done "decently and in good order" (I Corinthians 14:40).
The Lord, through that same apostle, declared that it is the will of God that both genders abstain from immorality by taking and possessing sexual mates for themselves in holiness and honor -- not in the passion of lust so that no one is defrauded nor caused to be unclean by being sexually immoral in whatever ways (I Thessalonians 4:4-8).
Being that Eve was the first to take and eat the forbidden fruit in Eden, then did even worse by giving non-soliciting Adam some of it also, and thus is at fault from the start for bringing sin into the world (see Genesis 3:1-6 and I Timothy 2:12-14), let us consider some scenarios where the inferior-gender weaker sex (see I Peter 3:7) causes sexual assault [themselves], instead of the superior gender being to blame.
Let's say that a hopefully-non-tattooed/non-pierced, single? pre-teen [tween] girl (near puberty) or (young to middle-aged) woman is sunbathing "birthday-suit" naked on a deserted beach (therefore perhaps admittedly or nonadmittedly bait-casting herself and fly-fishing for men at random - or at least for one "suitable" specimen) she can then either accept or reject at her whims, and a single or already-married fisherman heads toward her.
What is his logical response to her, IF he approaches her?
He could assume that she is insane (Luke 8:27), and call 911 on his cellphone. But she might throw a towel over herself and run inside a cabin or tent, OR slip into the water as soon as she detects he is approaching.
The fisherman does not know if she is the daughter of some father or brother or boyfriend or husband nearby or in the phonable area. She could be aversively hostile that he approached her, and perhaps call 911 on her cellphone. Or, he could remark that she looks nice, then asks if she wants to go ashore and lay in some rather secluded place nearby to have him rub some suntan lotion on her, or whatever, with either the assumption or presumption that she will not be a hypocritically-seducing undercover decoy cop ready to arrest him.
Usually, either a man or a woman already commits themselves in some publicly-allowed partially-clothed physical and tangible way that they will give and take legal-age sexual invitations from each other, whoever that might be. For example, both the guy and gal might sign up with Adult Friendfinder (particularly for already-married men wanting their very own additional concubines, which option e-harmony.com does not provide for already-married men).
Getting back to the nude or maybe nearly-all-nude human female on the beach, the lotion rubbing might proceed to more intimate mutual connections, perhaps even and ultimately those chancing her becoming pregnant or getting him messy with seminal ejaculation.
Under those circumstances, it would be quite difficult - if not practically impossible in that situation - for him to first determine her now-belonging-to-no-other-man availability and potential suitability, followed by presenting her with a Compatibility Questionnaire after which they both perhaps mutually sign a private Concubinal-Marriage Certification Form with her gold ring on the 4th finger coming later.
Then again, he might suspiciously forego the opportunity, realizing that she might again display her goodies to other men at random when he is not around, and incur his jealous wrath with all sorts of dire consequences.
The man privately encountering the totally-nude girl or younger woman might not want to connect into her private parts, not only because the man would be taking a chance of getting her pregnant, resulting him then having to become identified to and with her, but also becoming socially and financially responsible for her and a possible forthcoming child. Added to that, there is the chance of him contracting some venereal disease from her. Finally, there is the Biblical prohibition against fornication, with Hell promised to fornicators and adulterers.
All throughout the Bible, and especially in the New Testament, are admonitions to wait for the Lord, patiently turn the other cheek, look away rather than lust, and simply take the attitude of prudishly? refusing to do anything about it at the moment (except perhaps pray) and let God work things out in His retributive ways and timing. Easier is the decision if the single girl or woman strips naked or partially-naked in view of public traffic along a highway and seen by passing motorists speeding by on the freeway, in which case 911 cellphone calls to the police or highway maintenance people are the only sensible responses by those hapless travelers visually attacked by such gross indecency.
And where is the cutoff pertaining to degrees, stages, types, and intensities of partial-to-complete nudity suggested in the situation above? Would the same responses by a fisherman, fishermen, or freeway drivers be done seeing the sight of a woman merely topless (with bare breasts exposed)? Wearing a buttocks-baring thong-strap bikini, or barefoot with sleeveless tank top and short shorts? With LOOSE long hair, a sleeveless blouse, kneecap-length shortened skirt, and no socks under summertime sandals?
The decent alternative to general-public mixed-gender nudist parks and camps would involve many different types of outdoor and indoor completely-enclosed visually-restricted areas where discreet and healtful solitary or spousal nudity can be experienced and enjoyed.
It is not to be reasonably expected for ONLY [human] males exclusively and always to merely exercise sexual self-control while women terroristically and rather anonymously flaunt various degrees of immodesty to and against the visually-attacked men.
When it can be done by the offended against the offenders, legal retaliation must be performed (but never "committed") only against those specific human-female seducer(s) themselves who have displayed or are displaying non-asked-for nudity of whatever kinds and degrees to men as individuals and as a group......instead of being forced on [substitutionary] innocent, modestly-attired, female victims usually called molestation or rape.
Vengeful or entrapment sexual contact with either voluntary or involuntary immodest offenders should obviously be out of the question.
Before any physical punishment is administered (as for example a whip, rod for the back of fools, shock collar, bondage imprisonment, slapping, etc.) or even financial penalties are administered against the immodest, there needs to be adequate verbal-warning announcements from schools administrators, government and law-enforcement officers, and religious advisors using or allowing whatever media sources to prepare the variable-type-and-severity immodest for readily-accessible messages of imminent consequences coming against the variably-immodes in the very near future.
Which gets us to the very-serious and very-tempting dilemma of covert search, acquisition, and accumulation for private lusting of and with all-nude photos of teen and slightly older young women, especially on the web. Simply typing in certain words into a no-censorship-preferenced Dogpile or Google Searchbox will bring up a plethoria and limitless assortment of nude-women hotlinks directing one to click into sharp color thumbnail-enlargeable photos and short-clip movies of birthday-suit-naked women -- copyable by right-clicking the mouse and scrolling down the pop-down menu to save the imagery into flashdrives, CDs, diskettes, and/or hard drives.
