OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Trying to stay on submerged creek channel or a school of fish can be tough. Trying to watch that depth finder and fish can be hard, especially if the wind is blowing, too.

Old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and National Backlash Pickin' Champion, has a few tips that may help.

Take a look at the photo of our marker buoys. We use these to hold position on something underwater that we can't see. That submerged creek channel edge, a rock pile, some stumps - whatever the cover or structure may be, we can easily fish it with pinpoint accuracy on every cast. The markers tell us right where it is. A key point in marker use, though, is to NEVER place the marker directly on the target. That big old weight attached to the string might spook the fish down there as it falls past and hits the bottom. Also, you will probably get tangled in that string while fishing, especially if you get a fish on. So, always place the marker 20-30 feet to one side of the target.

Another good use for the markers is helping get something back that you drop overboard (see Tipster's Tip about getting that rod back you kicked over the side). I always keep a marker real close so I can toss it in quickly if I spot something of interest on the depth finder. But, it is also a 'must' to quickly mark the location of something you kick or drop over the side of the boat. If you know where the sunken item is, you may be able to retrieve it. The marker helps do that, if you can get it in the water quickly enough.

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
