What should you do when fishing on the water?
Hold the pole straight out in front you. If you can turn in a circle without hitting anyone, that is a safe distance. Follow CDC guidelines, such as wearing a mask in public. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Wash hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not available
When is the best time to go fishing in cold weather?
Because the weather drastically affects fish activity levels, some of the best conditions for fishing depend on when Mother Nature decides to present us with a cold front. Fish feed just before the passing of these, so if you can be out on the lake just before the front passes, you’re going to catch a heap of fish.
What’s the safest way to fish in public?
Practice social distancing by keeping at least six (6) feet of distance between yourself and others. A good way to measure this is with your fishing pole! Hold the pole straight out in front you. If you can turn in a circle without hitting anyone, that is a safe distance. Follow CDC guidelines, such as wearing a mask in public.
Do you have to share fishing gear with others?
Drive to your fishing spots only with your immediate family members and only if everyone is feeling well. Don’t share fishing gear with others. Each angler should have their own fishing gear (rod and reels, bait, lures, towels, pliers, and other personal items).
