Fish Spotting

Spotting fish isn't just as easy as seeing them swim by. To improve your watercraft, there are a number of things you can do to help find those elusive fish! Here are some key things to look for:

1. Fish on the surface: This is the most obvious thing to look for, but you will often see fish in the upper layers. These can be caught on float fishing presentations, fishing a bait high in the water column.

2. Look For Cover. Quite often fish will be hiding in snaggy areas or lily pad beds or weed. Check these areas for signs of actviity. Can you spot the carp?

3. Watch The Birdie. Coots dive to feed and will quite often follow carp around. If you see a coot pop up quickly looking scared, chances are a big fish has just barged it out of the way!

4. Jumping Fish. Fish don't always make noise when they come out of the water. Tench and bream tend to roll quietly, so watch the surface of the water at all times for these kinds of signs. Any movement is worth a cast!

5. Fly Hatches. Fish eat flies as they hatch up from the lakebed, and so do swallows. You'll see them swooping and diving for flies as they hit the surface. This usually means the fish will be eating the same thing and will be up near the surface.

6. Bubbles! This is when fish release air from the lakebed as they feed, or from their gills. Either way, it's a good sign fish are present and on the move!
