Imagine you’re sitting all alone outside on a cloudy day by a body of water. It’s quiet and almost chilly. Suddenly there’s a tug on your line. You’re fighting to pull in fifteen-inch trout. You’ve caught it! What a good start to the day.
“Being local to the Susquehanna River, fishing is a pretty popular sport,” sophomore Michael Ondek said.
“Cloudy, damp mornings are the best, fish don’t like it when it’s too bright out, or the vibrations from the rain. Plus, you don’t cast a shadow and there’s no glare on the water, “ sophomore Samantha Moser states.
A big question for all fishers is keeping the fish or letting it go. “I fish for sport only, so I let what I catch go,” sophomore Joshua Ziolkowski says.
But Ondek and Moser disagree. “We eat what we catch as long as it’s the right size. Pennsylvania fish and game commission has decided that a minimum of seven inches is the right size."
“While out fishing you should be comfortable! Be prepared to get muddy.” Ziolkowski exclaims.
There isn’t as such thing as “best bait.” The bait completely depends on the person, but more importantly what kind of fish are getting caught. “You can’t go wrong with worms, “ Ondek says. “Almost any fish will go for the worm.”
“I’ve always used beetles, they move around more and draw more attention,” Moser claims.
However, the amount of bait needed depends on how much fish a person intends of catching.
When choosing a spot its always good to consider different variables. Fishing in areas that are too crowded doesn’t necessarily mean that there are a lot of fish. In fact, having so many people around can scare the fish away.
In York County alone, there are 22 registered fishing locations. “Find a good spot and stay to yourself,” Ziolkowski says.
Fishing season started in the end of March and ends in February. The state re-stocks the different locations weekly.
In order to obtain a fishing license you must be 16 years of age. A license that lasts all year long costs $22.70, according to the Pennsylvania Fish and Game Commission. Someone who isn’t 16 years old can still go fishing as long as they’re with an adult who has a valid fishing license.
Fishing is used for food or for sport. Whichever is preferred, it is key to remember to obey the fishing laws that are in place for the safety of you, the fishermen.
