How to Find a Good Fishing Spot
Whether you’re fishing from a small boat or from shore, it’s always helpful to know what you should be looking for when scouting out a good inshore spot. Here’s a few of our suggestions:
- Docks, piers and pilings – Take particular note of any old pilings from piers that have rotted away or become submerged beneath the water because these areas typically harbor very good numbers of fish. It’s easier to get your line hung up on docks and pilings though, so be prepared with extra hooks, line and leader as you get more accustomed to working these types of areas.
- Bridges – Lower bridges are generally best since they offer lots of shady areas and support pilings for fish to hide around.
- Creek mouths – Creek mouths have swirling currents and eddies that inshore species love because of the number of minnows, shrimp, and crabs that can be feasted upon. Keep an eye out for the rip line where clearer water meets the discolored water of the creek. These are prime areas that can usually be fished from shore easily.
