Fishing in Lakes and Ponds

fishing in lakes and ponds is a good place to start because they are suitable for fish to live places. Produce abundant plant foods and offer plenty of cover for the fish to hide. Coastal structures such as wharves, logs, stumps, bushes and rocks provide shelter, shade and protection for fish. All of which means that lakes and lagoons are the main points of fishing.

You can fish in lakes and ponds from shore or from a boat. You can find fish in shallow or deep water, open water or near natural or man-made structures. In lakes, freshwater fish such as black bass, pike, perch, trout, even salmon catch.

Know the structure of its lake. Points, tickets, holes, sunken islands, dams, (artificial or natural) submerged objects, and rushes and weeds are considered structures. You should always fish around the structure. It is a simple formula:
• The structure creates shallow water
• Shallow waters create plant growth
• The plant growth attracts bait fish
• The bait fish attract predatory fish, which are those who want to fish

Cliffs and steep banks
A or a riverside cliff that goes straight down to the deep water provides no structure or gradual path access to deeper waters. Therefore, they do not attract fish. Moreover, a cliff , or a bank that has a platform underwater or slopes gradually into deeper water itself attracts fish. Look rock collapsed in the submarine base of steep cliffs. The deep – sea fish may be attracted to these rocks for feeding or reproduction.

Rocks are structures. They provide fish shelter (coverage), food and a possible place to mate. Remember, always fish in structures. If the rocks are in deeper water or on the edge of deeper waters, they provide a better place to fish. Just be careful not to snag your bait.

Points with breaklines
A point extends from the coast and slopes gradually down and into deeper waters. It is a good place to fish. However, a point with a rapid descent or one that does not extend to deeper water is not a good place to fish.
• The slope of a point creates a line break.
• A line break leads to fish waters shallow to shallow waters for food.
• Fish tip and corners point (the part that curves back to the shore defined by

Lines drift and wind
Have you noticed lines in the water during a windy day? The breeze really pushes surface water around the lake which, in turn, pushes the food around the surface. Look for lines drift and find the fish.

The strongest winds can actually push the bait fish near the coast, bringing predatory fish near the shore to feed. Sometimes the really strong winds can provide good fishing, removing everything from microscopic food to predatory fish. But it is very difficult and can be dangerous. So it’s better to go with a professional or an experienced guide.

Alga beds
beds algae are structures. Provide food and shelter for bait fish, which attract predatory fish. Look seaweed beds leading to deeper waters and create a line break. Or look seaweed beds sunk in deep, open water.

Islands and sandbanks
These bodies sunk or partially submerged land will attract both fish and predatory fish bait if they create a line break where the earth is gradually inclined downward toward deeper water. Water currents run around the islands, transporting plant foods and small aquatic animals that float on the surface. What you can also attract bait fish and predatory fish.

Holes are formed glaciarmente basins that are lower than the rest of the lake. The water is cooler holes, which attracts fish deep water on hot summer days. You will need a topographical map to find them .

Open Water
Good luck. If you are not in shallow waters, and no algae or other natural structure or caused by man in sight – above or under water, is in open water and is in a very difficult place to fish.

But you may be right above a stream or river channel used by deep-sea fish to get from one side of the lake to another in search of food. Or, you can be above or down a deep hole where lie the deep-sea fish stream. Still, it is difficult to fish in any of these places.

Sometimes, in spring and autumn, when there is very little vegetation anywhere, the bait fish roam the open waters of the lake in search of plankton. In those moments, you can find small fish in open water surface. If you see a lot of small fish, it is a good bet that the larger fish are lurking nearby.

Hoyos de Manantial
When water boils at the bottom of the lake, a spring hole is created. In the summer, deep – sea fish are attracted to these holes, because the water that comes out is always cooler. Even if the hole is not in deep water, spring holes can attract predators unwary deep water. But spring holes are very difficult to find. If you’re ready for the challenge, use a meter of water temperature in the summer to locate the outer edges of the area of cold water and the depth of the layer. Spring holes are sometimes found in the boat docks have been removed, opening up springs, causing the colder water to collect in areas protected from the wind.

Objects sunken
trees, branches, trunks, stumps and rocks are considered structures. All provide shelter, shade and protection for fish. So it’s a good place to catch a fish. Always watch your line, and be very careful if you are in a boat to avoid hitting objects.

Water lilies
Insects and other aquatic creatures that live in and around the núfares attract bait fish and bait fish always attract larger fish. Large patches of lily pads can also create shade, which also attracts fish. Lance at edges and openings. Otherwise, you can entangle your computer.

Gradual Riberas
Like any structure that slopes gradually down and into deeper waters, a riverside with gradual slope can provide plant -based foods, attracting fish and creating a way out of and back into deeper water. However, a very gradual slope creates a large expanse of shallow water that does not attract fish.

Wharves, docks and piles
Wherever there is structure, there is food, shelter and fish. Algae, barnacles and other food sources can attract anything. The docks and piers provide shelter from the sun and a good resting place for large and small fish.

Internal curves and inlets
An internal corner is a small inlet that cuts the shore. If the water is shallow curve, it has another line break, and a great place to fish.

A cove is a larger version of an internal curve. With more coastline, more shallows and greater protection, and hopefully more fish. Smaller fish will patrol a cove by plants and fish bait and fish predators can arrive early in the morning or late at night.

Shallow waters of the sea
water along the coast provides a lot of structure and food. Therefore, it attracts fish. The bait fish are food for plants. For pan fish such as crappie types, and perch, bait fish come by. Early morning – or late at night – predatory fish will swim in the shallow waters to hunt and fish bait fish to pan.

Inputs and Outputs
All natural lakes are fed by a river or a stream of some sort. So they have inputs and outputs of water. Wherever there is incoming or outgoing water, there will be plenty of food, and lots of fish.

Walkways and bridges
gateways are like springs, but are specially built fishing platforms that are close and run parallel to the bridges, docks, coastal piers, or similar structures. An example is a walk along a bridge, but built on a lower level. This keeps safe from car traffic fishermen and puts them closer to the water.
Fishing is not always allowed from the bridges because of the danger of traffic. On bridges where fishing is allowed to fish should carefully.
