Tips for Fishing from a boat

Rowing boats are driven exclusively by oars. Capacity – up to 4 people. They are great for fishing on a lake or small river, for short distances. As an example – rubber boat. Read on to know more tips about fishing from a boat.

Rubber motorized oars are equipped with aluminum oars, but have the ability to install a gasoline or diesel outboard motor for fast movement from one point to another. Depending on the model, they can accommodate from 1 to 4 people. Some models are equipped with seating, such as the Outland inflatable boat.

One of the most common questions on fishermen forums is how to anchor an inflatable boat? It’s not difficult at all. Professionals have revealed several secrets:

  • two loads must be tied to the boat: in front and heavier – in the back;
  • since the rear load is responsible for fixing the boat in place, its cable should be 1.5 – 2 times longer than the depth – so the floating vehicle will definitely not budge;
  • both cables should be tightly pulled and leave the boat in opposite directions at an angle, and not strictly vertically;
  • the boat is anchored with its bow towards the wave and against the wind. If current is present, the boat should be turned head downstream.

For summer fishing, choose special clothing and footwear to be comfortable in both hot and cold weather. The outfit should be comfortable. Also, don’t forget about insect protection.

Any fisherman will be pleased to receive a gift box or bag for baits with a lot of sections.

Fishing boxes do not heat up in direct sunlight. In addition, they are sealed – if a closed container falls into the water, the air inside will prevent it from drowning.

What is the catch!

Contrary to all kinds of laws, luck can be measured. For example, in the number of fish caught or in kilograms of catch. If the fishing is successful, the lucky one rolls the feast uphill. What could be tastier than fresh fish soup in nature? Only a properly prepared ear! The main secret of real fish soup: it is cooked exclusively on the fire!

You will need:

  • 1 whole onion;
  • bay leaf, spices (pepper, salt);
  • 600 – 700 g of fresh fish per 2 liters of water;
  • potato;
  • greens.

Hang the pot of water on a tripod over the fire, throw the peeled onion and bay leaf into it. Clean, gut, rinse the fish, be sure to remove the gills – they add bitterness to the ear. Cut the fish into large pieces with a knife (it is not necessary to cut the small fish). As soon as the water boils, chopped potatoes are placed in the pot. 

After it is cooked, the fish is laid. Bring the ear to a boil again. By the way, it should not boil violently, but slowly and lazily. Then add the spices and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the pot from the tripod, add the herbs and leave the ear under the lid to brew for another 15 minutes. Taste!

A fisherman will never affect the weather and will not agree with the fish about a rich catch, but he can believe in his luck and do everything that depends on him. “Without labor – you can’t catch a fish from the pond” – probably, this is exactly what the proverb says.
