Trolling can serve as the boating equivalent of napping on a riverbank with a straw hat over your face, and a bell attached your rod—you throw one or two lines in, set the boat on cruise, and kick back. No judgment, that’s a better way to spend the day than most and is sometimes exactly what’s called for. These tips, however, are for a more active, engaged breed of trolling. It’s about the kind of trolling employing an underwater fishing camera, dynamic use of the bait, and analysis of conditions. If that’s the kind of trolling you’re interested in, the kind far more likely to catch fish, read on.

In accordance with the apparent unspoken law of fishing writing, the phrase “the fish of 10,000 casts” must appear at least once in any article about fishing for muskellunge. The problem with that cliché is that it reinforces the belief that a musky really is that hard to catch. That can end up turning away would-be musky-slayers who could be having a blast fighting these monstrous fish.
But muskies are not the fish of 10,000 literal casts—or at least they don’t have to be. Like their pike cousins, they are aggressive ambush predators that will eat anything they can fit in their massive, toothy maws. Armed with the right gear, some reliable advice (research is a must), and a few new tricks (like an underwater fishing camera), you can be landing trophy muskies in short order.
If you’re an angler, it’s a virtual certainty that you’ve stared at the water wondering: How many fish are actually down there? What species, and how big are they? Perhaps most importantly: Why aren’t they hitting? Without the assistance of technology, it’s difficult to know any of that for sure.
Fish finders and other tools are steps in the right direction. Without a true visual tool, however, what’s happening under the surface was destined to remain a mystery—at least before the GoFish Cam came along. Now, you can finally get a window to the other side, the world of the fish you’re stalking, by taking advantage of the GoFish Cam underwater fishing camera. The following are just a few of the ways GoFish Cam has changed everything.

Naturally occurring lakes, rivers, and ponds, as well as man-made lakes are usually freshwater and will have entirely different marine life than saltwater life.

In this blog, we’re going to take a look at several helpful tips you should follow for freshwater fishing.
As anglers, we know that there’s no such thing as a “bad day of fishing”. Even when things don’t go our way, we have fun and make the best of being out on the water. A lot of the time we go to our local pond or lake just to get ourselves a fix, and for many anglers who do this, they'll usually fish off a dock or the bank.

Each location offers a unique fishing experience and float fishing allows you to enjoy each to its fullest! In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some mistakes to avoid while float fishing.
