Fishing Tips & Tricks for Beginners

As we mentioned in our last blog post, fishing is a great activity for kids. At the master-planned community of ArrowBrooke, we make it easy to connect with the outdoors.

Never fished before? Don’t worry, you’ll have access to a catch-and-release pond located inside of ArrowBrooke for residents only! Here are some tips for beginners.

Check The Weather

Before you head out to fish, be sure you are aware of the forecast. This will not only affect how you will want to dress but also how the fish are reacting on that specific day. The best weather to fish in is an overcast sky, according to experts.

Bring Food

It’s important to bring plenty of bait for the fish you’re trying to catch. But don’t forget about keeping yourself fueled throughout the day! Since fishing is patient and calm, the hours will fly by and you’ll find yourself needing an energy boost. So don’t forget to pack a lunch!

Keep Bugs Away

A day spent on the water is a day that will definitely involve bugs – probably a lot of them! Protect yourself and your kids with bug spray.

The Best Time to Fish

The best time to catch fish is simple – at dusk or dawn. That is usually when the fish feed so be prepared to get an early start or end your day near the water.

Keep Still, Calm, Quiet

It’s well known that fish are easily startled by noise. There are many different techniques when it comes to catching a fish. To give your fish the impression that your bait is alive, slowly reel in. Others like to let the bait sit in one spot. If nothing bites at 10-15 minutes, you should cast again in a different spot.

Fishing is a fun activity for the whole family. At our ArrowBrooke homes located near Frisco TX, you’ll always have the luxury of spending quality time near the water among many other hobbies for those interested in active living. Find your new home at ArrowBrooke today!
