#1 Mistake Wade Fishermen Make (That’s Costing Them Fish!)
What’s the biggest mistake most wade fishermen make that causes them to miss out on fish?
Is it fishing in the wrong spot?
Using the wrong lure?
Fishing at the wrong time?
Those are all common mistakes, but I’d argue there’s one that’s even bigger than those…
See what it is (and how to fix it!) in the video below.
#1 Mistake Wade Fishermen Make [VIDEO]
The biggest mistake that wading anglers make is approaching the fish from the wrong angle.
When you’re wading in the water, you’ve got a lot of smells on you and you’re kicking up a bunch of sediment.
If the fish are downwind or down current of you, then those smells and kicked up sediment are going to warn them that something unnatural is approaching and they should watch out.
On the other hand, if you’re downwind or down current of the fish, they’ll probably have no idea you’re there.
This will make catching them much easier.
For a visual on this, check out the two pictures below:
The Right Way To Approach A Spot When Wading
As you can see here, the fish are up current and upwind of me (I’m just below the target zone), and the wind and current are pushing my mud wake and smell behind me, away from the fish.
The Wrong Way To Approach A Spot When Wading
In this picture, you can see I’d be in the wrong spot because the current and wind would blow my smell and sediment right to the fish, giving away my location and putting them on high alert.
If you want to catch more fish while wading, then approach them from down current and downwind.
This will decrease the odds that they know you’re there, which increases the odds you’ll catch them.
