How to find fish? Fish instinctively like to do two things, eat and spawn. Spawning is the only thing that takes precedent over eating. Knowing the spawning season for a particular species helps determine where they're located. When fish are not spawning you need to know what they like to eat. More specifically, where in the water column, top, middle or bottom. Most fish have a preference but some can prefer all levels based upon time of day or season. To see a list of species and where they like to feed, check out our "Where fish feed" page. As a general rule most fish like structure. Many fish rest behind structure in heavy current, bait fish use structure for protection, predators use structure as an ambush point. The difficult part is identifying where the underwater structure is located. Assuming you're not on a boat with fishing electronics, look for signs above the water such as walls, rocks and water patterns. When you are unsure, simply fan cast to cover all of the water before changing locations.

This rig puts baits as close to the bottom as possible. Leaders are attached to the center leg and threaded through the bait arms to make the leaders rig-opposed. This means the baits are always separated but still provides good action while minimizing tangles. (See animated video) Great for any vertical fishing situation as well long casting in low snag areas such as sand and surf. Collapses for linear storage when leaders are removed.
