While some may love to sleep in, others would prefer getting up at the crack of dawn to enjoy some early morning fishing; read on if you fall under the second category of people and are looking for tips to catch fish!
Choose the Location Ahead
Plan ahead and choose your location beforehand; this will save time in the morning and help to prevent you from reaching the spot too late in the day. This tip also applies when travelling away from home to other countries. For example, if you’re going on holiday, select a destination where you can easily enjoy this activity. Pro-tip; private island resorts in the Maldives like Adaaran Prestige Vadoo which offer early morning fishing should be at the top of your list!
Remember That Silence is Golden
You are bound to be eager and excited to cast your line and may even want to carry on a conversation with fellow anglers who have joined you. Well, here’s the catch (pun intended), excessive noise and movement can scare the fish away and that could lead to a day where you return empty-handed. So be it in your home country or when trying such activities in Maldives, remember to channel your inner ninja, move stealthily and be as quiet as possible!
Bring Enough Baits and Lures
One of the advantages of early morning fishing is that you have a chance to catch fish which may not be picky eaters, but you will get exceptions to the rule. With that in mind, bring along a variety of lures and baits to entice them. If you do get some catch, it makes sense to stay with what you are using; however, if lady luck seems to have swum away, look to change up the various baits and lures and remember, variety is the spice of fishing life!
Don’t Quit When the Sun’s Up
As the sun slowly rises, you might be tempted to pack up and call it a day. But hold on there for a second! While the best time for fishing (especially in the summer) may be right at dawn, you should continue to keep your line out. Fish tend to change their habitats and behaviour according to the temperature of the water, so you still have a chance to get a catch or two. In fact, some of the best fishing moments may happen even after the sun has fully emerged from its slumber!
