Advice for Preparing for Fishing Season

Spring is finally here, which means one thing for anglers: It is time to prepare for the fishing season ahead! Call up your friends to plan spring’s first fishing trip and follow this checklist to make sure you are ready to get out on the water.

Replace Your Line

Instead of risking your line breaking mid-catch, start your season off right by replacing your fishing line before you head out on your first trip. Depending on where you store your fishing gear, the dry winter weather could have made your current line brittle, making this even more important.

And purchasing some new fishing line is a great excuse to head to your local sporting goods store to check out the latest gear! Spooling your line may not be the most exciting way to start a new season, but it will help to ensure all of your adventures go smoothly.

Sharpen Your Hooks

A sharp hook ensures a better connection with the fish that bites, helping to prevent your catch from wriggling away as you reel it in. A good season starts by prepping your gear, so if you can’t remember the last time you sharpened your hooks, early spring is the perfect time to do so.

Organize Your Tackle Box

If you put your tackle box away without a second glance when winter started, we recommend opening it up and reorganizing it before you head out on the water. Get your favorite lure ready, organize the new supplies you received over the holiday season and make note of what you will need to purchase before your first trip of the season. This way, you will have all the fishing accessories you need right where they are supposed to be the first time you and your buddies visit your favorite fishing spot.

Plan a Summer Trip

Now that you are organized and ready for your first fishing trip of the season, it’s time to start planning your big trip. Located in northern Saskatchewan, Lawrence Bay Lodge is a great place to visit whether you are fishing for northern pike, walleye, lake trout or arctic grayling. Enjoy some quality time with your family or closest friends as you take in the scenery and reel in some incredible fish on Reindeer Lake.
